Coffee Cuts Diabetes Risk

(Ivanhoe Newswire) -- New research shows consuming more coffee may lower a person’s risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

Researchers from the National Public Health Institute studied more than 14,000 men and women living in Finland -- a country with the highest coffee consumption per capita in the world.

Researchers found the risk of developing diabetes decreased as daily coffee intake increased.

Women who drank between three and four cups of coffee a day had a nearly 30-percent reduced risk of diabetes. Those who drank 10 or more cups a day had a nearly 80-percent reduced risk of developing the disease.

Men who drank between three and four cups of coffee a day also had a nearly 30-percent reduced risk of diabetes. Men who drank 10 or more cups had a 55-percent lower risk.

Coffee is the most consumed beverage in the world, and researchers say they are uncertain why it lowers diabetes risk.

The authors conclude, “This study revealed unequivocal evidence for an inverse and graded association between coffee consumption and type 2 diabetes, independent of other risk factors for type 2 diabetes.”
