Health benefit of coffee: antidiabetes

A significant reduced risk of diabetes among coffee drinkers is consistent with many studies. It was concluded that habitual coffee consumption is associated with a substantially lower risk of Type 2 diabetes (Van Dam, and Hu, 2005).

Harvard investigators followed more than 126, 000 subjects for up to 18 years and found that men who drank more than six cups (48 ounces) of coffee daily reduce they diabetes risk by more than 50% (30% for women). The effect faded with fewer than three cups per day.

Salazar-Martinez and colleagues’ study suggests that long-term coffee consumption is associated with a significantly lower risk for type 2 diabetes mellitus.

In the Pizarra study, a crosssectional study of 1226 randomly selected adults from a small town in Spain, persons who drank coffee at least once per day had a lower risk for diabetes mellitus and impaired glucose tolerance (odds ratio, 0.66 [95% CI, 0.48 to 0.92]; P 0.02) than persons who drank coffee only occasionally, after adjustment for age, sex, obesity, and smoking.
