IF you drink copious cups of tea or coffee you may be in luck, as a study suggests this contributes to a lower risk of dementia.

People who drank 11 cups a week, on average, had a third lower risk of getting diagnosed compared to those who just had nine cups a week.

But it wasn’t just tea and coffee that had a beneficial effect.

It was higher consumption of healthy foods that helps ward off the devastating memory-wiping illness.

The study looked at 1,059 people in Greece with an average age of 73 who did not have dementia.

Each person answered a food frequency questionnaire about their diet over the past month, including how much they are dairy products, cereals, fruits, vegetables, meat, fish, fats, alcohol, sweets and legumes – which include beans, lentils and peas.

They were given a score for how inflammatory their diet was.
