Posted by Rifki Hakim Tuesday, 13 November 2012

You are a coffee addicts may be relieved: not as many people think, drink coffee every day does not cause heart disease or cancer. In fact, it can reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes!

That's one conclusion from the results of a long-term study called EPIC (European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition). One of the world's largest prospective study that examined the relationship between diet and cancer and other chronic diseases such as type 2 diabetes. EPIC involving scientists from ten European countries who analyzed the data diet, lifestyle and medical conditions of more than 500,000 men and women. For this prospective study, the participants were selected who did not suffer from chronic diseases at baseline so that the risk factors for the disease can be identified before the disease arises. During the follow-up period of an average of nearly nine years, a total of 1432 subjects with type 2 diabetes, 394 had a heart attack, 310 suffered a stroke and 1801 with cancer. People who drank more than four cups (about 600 ml) of caffeinated coffee per day had a 23 percent lower risk of developing type 2 diabetes compared with those who consumed an average of less than one cup. A similar relationship was shown for consumption of decaffeinated coffee. The results of the research led by Heiner Boeing and Anne Flogel of the nutritional epidemiology Institute of Nutrition Potsdam-Rehbruecke in Germany has been published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.
