Drinking coffee can reduce the risk of diabetes and high blood pressure

New research has revealed that drinking up to four cups of coffee per day can reduce the risk of hypertension and diabetes.

If anyone tries to get you to cut back on the caffeine, you can now say it's for the good of your health!

Researchers at universties in Navarre, Spain and Catania, Italy, found a link between consuming coffee and metabolic syndrome (MetS), which is a combination of diabetes, high blood pressure and obesity. 

The studies found that drinking three to four cups of coffee per day resulted in around a 25 per cent lower risk of developing type two diabetes. If you drank less or more than this amount, the risk would increase, the scientists claimed. 

Even drinking decaf coffee gave the same results, scientists reported and findings were consistent across gender. 

But, before you get too excited, the scientists at both universities did conclude that more investigation needs to be conducted to further investigate the link between coffee and MetS.
