Filter Coffee Tied to Lower Diabetes Risk in Metabolomics Study

Adults who drank two to three cups of filtered coffee a day (the highest quartile of filtered coffee–metabolite score) had a 58% lower risk of developing type 2 diabetes within 10 years than those who drank fewer than one cup of filtered coffee a day (lowest quartile) after adjusting for multiple confounders (odds ratio, 0.42; 95% confidence interval, 0.23 – 0.75).

The protective effect of drinking this high amount on the risk of developing type 2 diabetes was not seen with boiled coffee.
