One more reason to love coffee . . .
You can fight diabetes with lots of espresso! So says a recent study from Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York, Archives of Internal Medicine. (New York Times, 12/22/09)
According to the study, coffee and tea drinkers are less likely to develop Type 2 diabetes than nondrinkers, with those drinking 3 to 4 cups a day at a 25 percent lower risk. And it doesn't matter whether the drinks are caffeinated or not. And those drinking more than 6 cups of coffee a day were at a 40 percent lower risk for diabetes than nondrinkers. (Yikes, that's some buzz.)
Caffeine or not, coffee seems to have some health benefits. CHEERS!
