Coffee Consumption Linked to Lower Diabetes Risk

February 2007
Tufts University Health & Nutrition Letter;Feb2007, Vol. 24 Issue 12, p6
The article looks at two epidemiological studies using dietary questionnaires that suggest a protective effect against diabetes associated with coffee drinking. A U.S. study published in the "American Journal of Epidemiology," found that people who reported drinking four or more cups of coffee daily had a lower risk of developing type 2 diabetes than those who "almost never" drink coffee. Similar findings were discovered in a Finnish study published in the "International Journal of Obesity."
