Good News For Coffee Drinkers

There is a new study from Harvard University scientists that has good news for coffee drinkers.

Harvard researchers have found that people who increased their intake of coffee by at least one cup per day over a period of years were less likely to develop Type 2 diabetes.

Researchers found that people that increased their coffee consumption by at least one cup per day were 11 percent less likely to get Type 2 diabetes compared with people who did not change their coffee drinking habits.

The research also found that people who cut back on their coffee drinking by at least one cup per day were 17 percent more likely to develop Type 2 diabetes.

It’s believed that chemical compounds in coffee, not the caffeine, are likely responsible for the lower risk of the Type 2 diabetes. Therefore, drinking more decaffeinated coffee should also help in reducing the risk of Type 2 diabetes.

So to quote Jerrod Niemann, ‘take your cup fill it up you can’t raise it high enough’!
