The consumption of up to four cups of coffee a day can reduce the risk of diabetes type 2 by 25%, according to a study by the Institute for Scientific Information on Coffee (ISIC) in Switzerland, published last Thursday.
Research indicates that the risk of suffering from diabetes type 2 drops 25% when there is an intake of up to four cups of coffee per day, with the danger of developing the disease can decrease from 7% to 8% with each additional cup.
The study of ISIC, part of the annual report of the Swiss Institute, also shows that coffee does not increase the chances of cancer development and hypertension or the occurrence of strokes.
According to a statement of the institute, although not yet there is no scientific justification for these findings, the report carried out suggests that the benefits are due to the fact that the coffee improves blood glucose, metabolism and help burn calories.
Scientists have long known that the body's sensitivity to insulin can be affected by coffee. Other recent studies suggest, moreover, that a higher consumption of coffee may protect against metabolic insulin resistance in subjects with normal weight.
