More Research Indicates Coffee Consumption is Linked to Lower Risk of Type 2 Diabetes

imageMore good news for coffee drinkers.  As reported earlier, coffee can decrease your risk of type 2 diabetes. According to a new study posted in Diabetologia, a journal which publishes original clinical and experimental research within the field of diabetes, researchers found “novel evidence that increasing coffee consumption over a 4 year period is associated with a lower risk of type 2 diabetes, while decreasing coffee consumption is associated with a higher risk of type 2 diabetes in subsequent years.”  The two doctors, Dr Frank Hu and Dr Shilpa Bhupathiraju, went on to conclude “the higher risk of type 2 diabetes associated with decreasing coffee intake may represent a true change in risk.”  Furthermore, the study found “changes in coffee consumption habit appear to affect diabetes risk in a relatively short amount of time. Our findings confirm those of prospective studies that higher coffee consumption is associated with a lower type 2 diabetes risk, and provide novel evidence that changes in coffee consumption habit is related to diabetes risk.”  Read the whole story here.

New evidence also suggest that coffee’s effect of increasing metabolism may lead to longer life span.  According to News360, “Coffee has been found in other studies to significantly decrease diabetes in non-insulin requiring patients, as well as a lowering the risk of developing Parkinson’s disease or Alzheimer’s.  Other research estimated that coffee might be associated with a 30% lower risk of death over a period of a few decades… Just one cup of coffee contains more than 10% of your daily recommended allowance for certain B Vitamins. And Coffee is one of the most important and largest sources of antioxidants in our western diet.”As reported earlier, coffee can decrease your risk of type 2 diabetes.
