|"The more coffee you drink, the more you may lower your risk of type 2 diabetes." Harvard University research|
More evidence to dispel feeling guilty if you enjoy a cup of coffee. The research covered people who drank 6 cups a day, which is a lot of coffee!!! But, you do not need to drink that much to have some benefit, and it does not have to be caffeinated -- as it appears that chlorogenic acid is behind the benefit. This naturally occurring chemical reduces the rate that the intestines takes up glucose. So, cheers! Let's enjoy that cup of coffee.
