Here’s one more reason to drink filtered coffee. A research has shown that filtered, decaffeinated coffee may decrease an individual’s risk of developing Type 2 diabetes. Filtered coffee exhibited a greater protective effect than boiled coffee, and decaffeinated coffee showed a greater protective effect than caffeinated coffee.
The researchers noted that drinking decaffeinated filtered coffee at lunchtime is the best time of day to lower the chances of diabetes. The evidence shows that drinking three to four cups of coffee per day is associated with an approximate 25 percent lower risk of developing Type 2 diabetes compared to consuming none to less than two cups per day. They also suggested a favorable association: With each additional cup of coffee, the relative risk of developing Type 2 diabetes goes down by 7-8 percent.
More than 380 million people worldwide have diabetes, with an economic burden of $548 billion, making it one of the most significant global health problems.
