Green tea and coffee lower risk of death in people with type 2 diabetes

 

New research published in BMJ Open Diabetes Research & Care suggests that drinking lots of coffee and green tea correlates with a lower risk of death from any cause among people with type 2 diabetes.

The study monitored the health of 4,923 Japanese people diagnosed with type 2 diabetes with the average age of 66. The participants were tracked for an average of five years.

It was discovered that drinking one cup of green tea daily was linked to 15% lower odds of death. Drinking 2-3 cups was linked to 27% lower odds, and drinking 4 or more cups per day was associated with 40% lower odds of death.

The results of drinking coffee were similar: drinking up to one cup of coffee per day was associated with 12% lower odds, one full cup daily showed 19% lower odds, and two or more cups were associated with 41% lower odds.

For those who drank both green tea and coffee daily, the effect was even more significant. The reduced odds of death were as follows: 51% lower for 2-3 cups of green tea and two or more cups of coffee daily; 58% lower for four or more cups of green tea plus one cup of coffee every day; and 63% lower for four or more cups of green tea and two or more cups of coffee every day.
