report from the Institute for Scientific Information of Coffee (ISIC) shows that there is a correlation between drinking coffee and reducing the chances of developing type 2 diabetes.

During the 2012 World Congress on Prevention of Diabetes and Its Complications (WCPD), researches presented evidence showing that three to four cups of coffee per day cut the risk of developing type 2 diabetes by up to 25%. A separate study showed that each additional cup of coffee reduces the chance of developing type 2 diabetes by 7-8%.

“A dose-dependent inverse association between coffee drinking and total mortality has been demonstrated in general population and it persists among diabetics,” says Dr. Pilar Riobó Serván, a speaker at the WCPD session and associate chief of Endocrinology and Nutrition at Jiménez Díaz-Capio Hospital in Madrid.

“Although more research on the effect of coffee in health is yet needed, current information suggests that coffee is not as bad as previously considered!”

Researchers are not yet sure why the correlation exists. They are hypothesizing that the caffeine stimulates the metabolism and increases energy expenditure, reducing the risk. More investigation will need to be done before the exact cause is made known.
