ANOTHER reason to drink coffee? Four cups of the hot beverage each day slashes the risk of type 2 diabetes by 25% (and even decaf lovers can reap the benefits)

Good news for coffee lovers across the world. Another study has found a cuppa to be beneficial for your health.

Four cups of the hot beverage each day can slash your risk of developing type 2 diabetes by 25 per cent, research suggests.

But the rule only applies to those who drink decaffeinated coffee, espressos and cafetieres – not lovers of trendier filter versions.

The beneficial effects all stem from cafestol, a compound abundant in coffee, but in varying levels across different varieties.

The findings, made by Danish scientists, add to a plethora of evidence which shows coffee to be beneficial for the body.
