- More caffeine women consumed, the lower the risk of dying with diabetes
- The protective effect depended on the source of the caffeine
- High caffeine from tea consumers had an 80% decreased risk of death
The protective effect depended on the source of the caffeine: higher levels of caffeine consumption from coffee were associated with a decreased risk of death from any cause, particularly from cardiovascular disease; while women who consumed more caffeine from tea were less likely to die from cancer. Average daily coffee consumption is between 100mg and 300mg per day, depending on age and country.
Dr. Joao Sergio and Professor Davide Carvalho from the University of Porto examined the association between varying levels of caffeine intake and mortality in more than 3,000 men and women with diabetes from the year 1999 to 2010. The participants reported their caffeine intake from coffee, tea and soft drinks when they entered the study using 24 hour dietary recalls.
Among the diabetic women who consumed over 200 milligram per day (which makes 2 regular cups of coffee), the reduced risk of death was about 66%. When divided into four groups of tea consumption, the high caffeine from tea consumers had an 80% decreased risk of cancer compared with women with zero caffeine consumption from tea.
