Nearly 29,000 women in Iowa took part of a study that lasted from 1986 to 1997 and was looking for the link between eating and drinking habits and type 2 diabetes risk.
After eleven years of analyzing and studying, the results showed that women who drank six cups or more of decaffeinated coffee had reduces risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

The reason why coffee has such benefits on diabetes risk reduction is because it is a powerful antioxidant and has a very important role in regulating blood sugar. Coffee also protects pancreatic cells that produce insulin, which certainly decreases the risk of insulin resistance or impaired production ie diabetes.

Diabetes is a nasty disease that affects around 18 million Americans and that leads to different organs damage, blindness and circulation problems.

The study conducted that decaffeinated coffee only reduced the risk of diabetes to 22%.
