Can you brew a pot of diabetes prevention?By
If you are a daily coffee drinker, you don’t need scientific proof that a cup of Joe has valuable benefits. Newly-released findings suggest that your morning brew may reduce your risk of developing diabetes.
Researchers from the Institute for Scientific Information of Coffee presented their findings at the 2012 World Congress on Prevention of Diabetes and its Complications. The report shows drinking three to four cups of coffee a day could cut the risk of developing type 2 diabetes by up to 25 percent.
Coffee has gotten lots of bad health press in the past because of its link to heart disease, sleep disorders, heartburn, high blood pressure and more. The researchers seemingly have their work cut out for them, but they have developed arguments to show that coffee has positive effects on metabolism and energy expenditures.
