• Coffee may be good for diabetics


    PARIS: People who boosted their coffee intake by “moderate to large” doses in a US-based study had a lower risk for adult-onset diabetes than those with stable consumption, researchers said on Friday. An analysis of studies that tracked the diet and lifestyles of more than 120,000 health sector workers, showed that those who increased their daily caffeine dose by about 1.5 cups a day over a four-year period had an 11-percent lower chance in the subsequent four years of developing type 2 diabetes, the team found. This was in comparison to those whose intake remained constant. “Furthermore, those who had moderate to large decreases in intake [about two cups a day]had an 18 percent higher risk,” a research team in Diabetologia, the journal of the European Association for the Study of Diabetes.                     AFP
