A new study suggests that regular coffee drinkers by 30% reduces the risk of developing diabetes, regardless of whether you drink coffee with or without caffeine.
Recent results from large European research on the effectiveness of food and lifestyle on human health also reveal that coffee does not increase risk of heart disease or cancer.
Followed the habits of a total 42,659 people and over a period of nine years. In that period were recorded 1,432 cases of type 2 diabetes, 2,394 cardiac infarctions, 310 strokes and 1,801 cases of cancer, reports Washington Post.
Moreover, this study found that drinking more than four cups of coffee per day compared with people who drink a cup of coffee is associated with increased risk of developing a chronic disease.
The former studies indicate that coffee reduces the risk of diabetes, but there were conflicting results about whether coffee encourages chronic diseases, heart attacks and cancer. The new results show that it is not the case.
However, specifically pregnant women are advised that caffeine intake during pregnancy should be reduced to 200 mg from all sources (tea, coffee, coca-cola, chocolate).
Simultaneously, the U.S. study conducted on more than 50,000 women said that drinking 2 or more cups of coffee a day reduces the risk of depression.
