A new research report has given those who do not take coffee a reason to do, as findings of the study claim Coffee can cut the chances of developing type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure and even heart disease.
This comes as researchers at the universities of Navarre in Spain and Catania in Italy discovered a link between coffee consumption and metabolic syndrome.
Metabolic syndrome, or MetS, is a combination of diabetes, high blood pressure and obesity, which raises the risk of cardiovascular problems, heart attacks and strokes. It can affect one in four adults in the UK.
The studies suggested that drinking three to four cups of coffee per day is associated with around a 25 per cent lower risk of developing type 2 diabetes, compared to consuming none or less than two cups in 24 hours.
It was gathered that thousands of newly-diagnosed cases from eight different countries were examined and showed a statistically significant positive link between coffee drinking and subsequent risk of type 2 diabetes.
Every additional cup of coffee, up to six to eight cups a day, was linked to a five to ten per cent lower risk of developing the condition, scientists claim.
