Lower Diabetes Risk With Filtered Coffee

By and Friday, 31 January 2020 12:21 PM Current | Bio | Archive

"Two Joes" is a fan book about two of The Three Stooges, Joe Besser and Joe DeRita, who stepped into the madcap act many years after it first debuted. Besser arrived in 1955 after the death of an original Stooge; DeRita followed 15 years later.

The two Joes' longevity echoes what researchers found in a study published in the Journal of Internal Medicine.

The research indicated that consuming two cups of filtered coffee daily over a seven-year period cut a person's risk of Type 2 diabetes by 60% compared with those who drank less than a cup of filtered coffee daily.

It turns out that coffee brewed with filter paper strains out a chemical — diterpenes — that raises levels of bad LDL cholesterol.

Boiled, drip, French press, and espresso brews don't offer the anti-diabetes, heart-friendly benefit.

This finding comes after a 2013 study in the journal Diabetologia showed that folks who reduced their coffee intake by a cup or more a day over a four-year period raised their risk for Type 2 diabetes by 17%.

According to physicians from Johns Hopkins Medicine, other health benefits of coffee include reduced risks for Parkinson's disease, heart failure, colon cancer, Alzheimer's disease, and stroke, as well as healthier kidneys and liver.

So enjoy two or more cups daily if you can do it without experiencing a headache, gastric upset, an abnormal heartbeat, or anxiety within an hour of drinking.

But stay clear of sugary, fatty additives that negate coffee's benefits.
