Coffee and tea fight diabetes

Coffee switches between the nutritional “good” and “bad” lists so fast it’s hard to decipher whether it’s your morning vice or part of a healthy diet. According to research from Australia’s University of Sydney, which was based on a recent study published in the Archives of Internal Medicine, drinking three to four cups of regular or decaffeinated coffee or tea per day can reduce the risk of developing diabetes by 25 percent, each cup lowering risk by about 7 percent. Researchers cited magnesium, antioxidant lignans, and chlorogenic acids as the potentially beneficial nutrients in both drinks.
