Drinking up to four cups of coffee a day can slash the risk of diabetes by 25 per cent, says study.
Drinking up to four cups of coffee a day can slash the risk of diabetes by 25 per cent, a new study has claimed.
To mark World Diabetes Day Friday, the Institute for Scientific Information on Coffee (ISIC) in Switzerland has published its annual diabetes report outlining the latest research on coffee and type 2 diabetes.
The research concludes that regular, moderate consumption of coffee may decrease an individual’s risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
Epidemiological evidence shows that drinking three to four cups of coffee per day is associated with an approximate 25 per cent lower risk of developing type 2 diabetes, compared to consuming none to less than two cups per day.
