    High coffee, tea intake may reduce chances of developing type 2 diabetes.

    According to a study spublished in the Archives of Internal Medicine, "drinking four cups of coffee, decaf, or tea daily can reduce the chances of getting type 2 diabetes by about 25 percent to 35 percent." Harvard University "researchers reviewed 18 studies of almost 500,000 people" and discovered that "for each cup of coffee people drank, their likelihood of getting diabetes dropped by seven percent."

    "Even better results were found for bigger coffee and tea consumers -- drinking three to four cups a day was associated with about a 25% reduced diabetes risk, compared with those who drank between none and two cups day.. In addition, investigators found "positive results with decaf coffee and tea." Specifically, those "who drank more than three to four cups of decaf a day had about a one-third lower risk than those who didn't drink any," while "tea drinkers who consumed more than three to four cups a day had about a one-fifth lower diabetes risk than non-tea drinkers."
