Coffee May Reduce Diabetes Risk

Coffee May Reduce Diabetes Risk After conducting an 11-year study, researchers found that women who drank 6 or more cups of decaffeinated coffee a day were 33% less likely to develop type 2 diabetes. The researchers suggest that this is because coffee is rich in antioxidants, which may protect the insulin-producing cells in the pancreas. In type 2 diabetes, patients don't make enough insulin to keep sugar levels under control.

However, this doesn't mean that you should increase your coffee consumption or start drinking coffee if you don't already drink it regularly. Caffeine is a mild stimulant that has effects on the cardiovascular system such as increased heart rate, higher blood pressure or irregular heartbeat that should be considered in case you have heart disease or hypertension. If you feel that coffee has negative effects on you please talk with your doctor about it.
