And now for all those coffee nuts - Coffee cuts risk of adult diabetes

Reuters AlertNet - Coffee cuts risk of adult diabetes - U.S. study

To my friends and fellow netizens that are coffee fans, I salute! According to this article, the University of Minnesota has just released a report that indicates coffee consumption appears to reduce the risk of adult onset diabetes.

One statistic I like is that for those drinking 6 cups per day, they were 22% less likely to have type 2 diabetes. Make it decaf, and that number goes to a staggering 33% less likely.

Wow, I'm giving up iced tea and Diet Pepsi. I've been telling my wife that I need to learn to drink coffee. Now I have a reason. :)

Tip one for me my friends, but bring on the sweetner...
