Moderate Coffee Intake Reduces Risk of Diabetes

There is growing evidence on the benefits of drinking moderate amounts of coffee, and among these is its positive influence in the prevention of type 2 diabetes. A recent report, which summarized epidemiological studies suggesting the link between moderate coffee intake and diabetes, was presented at the 2012 World Congress on Prevention of Diabetes and Its Complications. The report highlighted research showing that drinking 3-4 cups of coffee daily may lower the risk for diabetes by 25% compared to drinking none or fewer than two cups daily.

A survey among British senior citizens aged 60 and above shows that those who have free bus passes walked and used other forms of active travel more frequently than other older individuals. This was revealed by researchers led by Sophie Coronini-Cronberg, MSc, of Imperial College London, using data from the 2005-2008 National Travel Survey. A National Bus Pass was introduced in England for senior citizens in 2006, initially giving them limited access, but was expanded in 2008 to include all local buses. The data showed that from 2005 to 2008, the number of older citizens with free bus passes increased […]
