A new study suggests coffee and tea may decrease the risk of developing diabetes.
U.S. (WiredPRNews.com) – A recent study suggests that coffee and tea consumption may decrease the risk of developing type 2 diabetes for individuals. As reported by HealthDay News, the Australian study found that each cup of coffee consumed was linked to a seven percent risk reduction.
Rachel Huxley, lead author of the study and an associate professor and director of the renal and metabolic division at The George Institute for International Health at the University of Sydney in Australia, is quoted in the report as stating of the findings, “There is good evidence that consumption of coffee, including decaffeinated coffee, and tea is independently associated with a reduced risk of developing type 2 diabetes.”
More information about the study may be found in the Dec14/28 publication of the Archives of Internal Medicine.
