Does Decaf Coffee Reduce The Risk Of Diabetes?

The release of a new study about coffee and diabetes has raised questions again about whether decaffeinated coffee is a healther choice for coffee lovers than regular coffee. A number of earlier studies on coffee and diabetes have shown that people who drink four or more cups of coffee a day reduce their risk of developing type 2 diabetes by 50 percent or more. The new study, published in the Dec 2011 issue of “Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry”, found that three compounds found in coffee may be the agents of that risk reduction.

They found that three of those substances — caffeine, caffeic acid and chlorogenic acid — appear to block the build up of hIAPP. More importantly, they found that the two acids have a significantly stronger effect against the toxic buildup than the caffeine. The team speculates that this inhibitory effect on the buildup of hIAPP may be the reason that coffee Continue reading >>

    Oh bull. You have to do this because there is no cure. If you don't its only you who is hurt, you'll start loosing parts of your body because a high blood sugar is destroying the cells. Having a temper tantrum isn't going to change the need for you to take responsibility for your body. Believe me if someone had a cure, they wouldn't hesitate to bring it out, they would make a fortune with it.
