Drinking coffee cuts diabetes risk

Drinking coffeeThree cups of tea or coffee a day could lower the risk of diabetes, according to a new study of nearly 9,000 people. Regular coffee or tea drinkers tend to have smaller waist and BMI measurements than people who have less than a cup a day of either.

Coffee – but not tea – also appeared to be linked with lower blood pressure, though it’s not clear why. (The new finding contradicts previous studies linking coffee to higher blood pressure.)

A large waist, high BMI and high blood pressure all contribute to metabolic syndrome, a cluster of symptoms that raise the risk of diabetes, heart disease and stroke.

University College London researchers found coffee or tea drinkers had 25 per cent fewer symptoms of metabolic syndrome, perhaps because compounds (polyphenols) in the drinks work against inflammatory chemicals.
