An extra cup of coffee or tea may dramatically cut your risk of developing diabetes.Researchers in Australia looked at 18 different studies involving more than 450,000 people. They found that people who drank three to four cups a day had a 25 percent lower risk of developing diabetes than those who drank very little coffee or tea. The benefit was seen even in those who preferred decaffeinated drinks.

The study did not indicate why this happens. These findings were reported in the Archives of Internal Medicine.
