I can’t start by day without a cup of coffee, there I said it, I think I have kind of an addiction to coffee. If I don’t have my daily cup of coffee the chances that I’ll be in a really bad mood for the rest of the day are huge. I drink so much coffee that I started asking myself whether coffee was healthy for me or not.
Researchers say that drink in coffee could be healthy and that it could prevent Type 2 Diabetes. Based on over 15 studies, the relationship between Type 2 diabetes and coffee is reliable. Frank Hu, MD, MPH, PhD, nutrition and epidemiology professor at the Harvard School of Public Health, reviewed 9 studies, which showed the relationship between Type 2 diabetes and coffee drinkers. People that drank coffee were in between 28% and 35% of less risk of getting type 2 diabetes. We see a strong correlation in this, it doesn’t mean that drinking coffee causes you not to have type 2 diabetes. It could also be due to chance, since there were’t many studies and they were not that big, there could be a huge possibility that is due to chance.
What about the coffee makes it healthy? Is not just the coffee, is the nutrients that the coffee contains. Despite the caffeine controversy, that disrupts your sleep, coffee overall is good, maybe not in excess, but is pretty good. Something that I learn throughout the blogs and the class is that everything in excess is bad, even water.
Some college students drink coffee to stay awake during the night because they have to study. I would recommend trying other stuff to stay awake, because you might get addicted to coffee and then that would be really bad for you health. Even to the point that you might not be able to fall asleep during the night.
