Studies on Coffee Drinking and Type 2 Diabetes

Mounting evidence, including the 2012 study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, suggests that coffee may actually have therapeutic health benefits, including the reduced risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

 

According to Dr. Frank Hu, MD, MPH, PhD, "The vast majority of those studies have shown a benefit of coffee on the prevention of diabetes. And now there is also evidence that decaffeinated coffee may have the same benefit as regular coffee.”

Based on nine U.S. published studies (193,000 coffee drinkers), researchers found that people who drank 4-8 cups of coffee per day had 28-35% decrease in likelihood of having type 2 diabetes (compared to the people who drank less coffee). Based on 18 more recent studies (458,000 people), Australian researchers found that for each additional cup of coffee drunk each day, coffee drinkers saw another 7% drop in the likelihood of developing type 2 diabetes.
