I'm a home roaster ... every couple of weeks I roast a fresh batch. If scientists want to say it'll hold off Alzheimer's or hearing loss or anything else - that's lovely ....... but I'll continue to enjoy my coffee even if scientists say it'll cause my butt to fall off.:unsure::ROFLMAO:

Here's how fresh picked coffee cherries look - inside, the seed makes two coffee beans:

My husband has been drinking coffee since childhood. He can't hear worth a crap.
It could be actual hearing loss, selective hearing, or a combination of the two.
Either way I find it necessary to raise my voice more often than not when I need to communicate with him. So much so that I choose not to talk when he's home.
I have nothing of value to say so my silence is golden.

Just talk about coffee beans and coffee aromas and coffee refills. It will help. Although my wife thinks a sharp stick in the eye works best against selective hearing loss.

I suspect he just has a wife filter. I know I do...

Probably because espresso bars are a lot quieter than discos

Magnesium protected against hearing loss due to noise exposure associated with military training. Note the form used: Magnesium aspartate. Pharmacy chains will sell you magnesium oxide, but as little as 5% may be absorbed. Magnesium citrate or gluconate is also recommended. RDA is about 400mg. per day, by the way.

Oral magnesium intake reduces permanent hearing loss induced by noise exposure.

INTRODUCTION: Following animal experiments where correlations were observed between serum magnesium level and noise-induced permanent hearing threshold shifts (NIPTS), we tested the prophylactic effect of magnesium in human subjects exposed to hazardous noise.
METHODS: Subjects were 300 young, healthy, and normal-hearing recruits who underwent 2 months of basic military training. This training necessarily included repeated exposures to high levels of impulse noises while using ear plugs. During this placebo-controlled, double-blind study, each subject received daily an additional drink containing either 6.7 mmol (167 mg) magnesium aspartate or a similar quantity of placebo (Na-aspartate).
RESULTS: NIPTS was significantly more frequent and more severe in the placebo group than in the magnesium group, especially in bilateral damages. NIPTS was negatively correlated to the magnesium content of blood red cells but especially to the magnesium mononuclear cells. Long-term additional intake of a small dose of oral magnesium was not accompanied by any notable side effect.
CONCLUSION: This study may introduce a significant natural agent for the reduction of hearing damages in noise-exposed population.

i love how red wine drinkers can site the study that shows that it's good for you. chocolate lovers can site the study that shows chocolate to be good for you. now coffee drinkers have their study. nobody seems to remember the studies that show that for other reasons, those are bad for you.

but keeping one's spirits up is generally a good thing. and if you can do it with coffee, more power to you.

While I'll agree that correlation and causation have yet to be connected in this instance... I already have plenty of reasons to continue my joyous three-plus cups a day!

Or 3+ pots a day!

Correlation is not causation.

Show me the mechanism, and I'll consider it a cause and effect relationship. No mechanism? Then it's the same as ice cream consumption and drownings at the beach.
Wait a minute?!?! I shouldn't eat ice cream on the beach?!?!!
