Studies Show Coffee May Lower Risk of Developing Diabetes
An interesting study performed by The Harvard Medical School recently noted that "one cup of coffee a day lowers diabetes risk by 13% and two cups a day cut the risk by 42%, compared to people who drink none." (3)
After in-depth studies on coffee scientists and researches believe, there is another compound in coffee that helps lower a person’s risk of diabetes. It is not the caffeine that many people may suspect.
Harvard Medical School has not released what exactly is in the coffee that can lower a persons risk for getting diabetes. We suspect in due time they will release that information. In addition, to how the compound works and if there is any possibility it could help diabetics manage there diabetes better. Of course, this would be excellent new seeing how coffee is one of the beverages of choice by millions of people.
