Drinking Coffee Makes Women Smarter . . . And Men Dumber
–According to a new study from Bristol University in England, when women drink coffee, it gives them a temporary boost in brainpower. When men drink coffee, it has the opposite effect.
–In the study, some men and women tried to do tasks like puzzles, negotiations, and memory challenges after drinking regular coffee, and some tried to do them after decaf.
–Men had a lot more trouble with memory and decision-making when they were ratcheted up on caffeine compared to when they drank decaf.
–Women did better on all of the tasks after drinking regular coffee.
–The researchers say they’re not exactly sure why drinking coffee has opposite effects on the genders.
