Coffee consumption and diabetes: the positive link

From the March 2013 issue.

Experts discuss a recent study that suggests coffee intake can reduce the risk of developing Type 2 diabetes.

Coffee Diabetes LinkScientific research has found another reason why consumers should indulge in additional cups of coffee. In January, the Institute for Scientific Information on Coffee (ISIC), an industry funded organisation, released a session report highlighting the links between coffee consumption and the development of Type 2 diabetes.

“Recent scientific evidence has consistently linked regular, moderate coffee consumption with a possible reduced risk of developing Type 2 diabetes,” Roger Cook, Science Manager at the ISIC, tells Global Coffee Review.

According to the ISIC session report, overall findings from studies published in the past five years point to epidemiological evidence that drinking three to four cups of coffee per day may help prevent Type 2 diabetes by up to 25 per cent, compared to consuming none or less than two cups per day.
