Drinking more coffee may further reduce the risk of diabetes, say researchers.

Increasing consumption by one and a half cups a day cuts the chances of developing type 2 diabetes by 11 per cent.

Although previous research suggested coffee drinkers benefit from a reduced risk of diabetes, it now appears an individual’s risk can be further improved by stepping up consumption.

Dr Frank Hu and Dr Shilpa Bhupathiraju, from the Department of Nutrition at Harvard University’s School of Public Health, looked at the link between changes in coffee consumption and diabetes risk.

They used data from three US-based studies including the Nurses’ Health Study with participants ranging from 25 to 75 years.

Detailed information on diet, lifestyle, medical conditions, and other chronic diseases was collected every two to four years for over 20 years.

Participants whose coffee intake fell by one or two cups a day had a 17 per cent higher risk for type 2 diabetes.
