Only Lunchtime Coffee-Drinking Cuts Diabetes Risk: Study | April 14, 2010

News on your coffee fix from Diabetes Newshound….

There have been many studies linking coffee with a reduced risk of Type 2 diabetes. However, a new study suggests that the java must be consumed during lunchtime, according to a recent article from Reuters.

A study of nearly 70,000 women found that those drinking coffee at lunch reduced their risk of developing Type 2 diabetes by a third. The results help true for both decaf and caffeinated coffee, both with sugar and without it. Those drinking it at other times during the day showed no reduced risk. The findings only applied to those drinking coffee without milk.

Researchers hypothesize that the lunchtime-effect may have to do with timing, but also may relate to the types of foods people eat during lunchtime.
