Thumbs Up for Your Daily Coffee Break!

Coffee has been shown to have several benefits ranging from lowering your risk for dementia to decreasing your risk of sudden death. Now a new study looking at over 70,000 women found that those who consumed at least a cup of coffee with lunch were one-third less likely to develop type 2 diabetes over several years than non-coffee drinkers.

Coffee has been shown to have several benefits ranging from lowering your risk for dementia to decreasing your risk of sudden death. Now a new study looking at over 70,000 women found that those who consumed at least a cup of coffee with lunch were one-third less likely to develop type 2 diabetes over several years than non-coffee drinkers. 

The study looked at both caffeinated and non-caffeinated coffee. Important to note here is coffee is not defined as sugar, fat-laden frozen, iced or hot coffee concoctions found on your local coffee shop menu (think mocha java drink with whip cream). If you’re planning a coffee break around lunch time with the girls, go for it but stay away from coffee “drinks” and stick with a pure cup of Joe instead!
