Good news for coffee lovers

I'm one of those folks who needs his cup of Starbucks coffee every morning.  Oh, I can survive without my coffee, and caffeine isn't a problem for me (I don't get headaches without it and it doesn't keep me awake at night if I enjoy a cup of coffee or two before bed), but I do love coffee.  So you can imagine my joy when I stumbled across a recent Harvard School of Public Health study which appears to show that several cups of coffee per day can significantly reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes.  For men who drink six or more cups of coffee per day, the risk of developing type 2 diabetes appears to be reduced by 50 percent or more while, for women, the reduction is about 30 percent.  As if I needed a reason to enjoy more coffee…  Go here to see the press release from Harvard.
