Caffeinated and caffeine-free beverages and risk of type 2 diabetes.

Increased intake of caffeinated and non-caffeinated sugar-sweetened and caffeine-free carbonated artificially sweetened beverages is associated with high diabetes risk.

This study investigated the correlation between the consumption of caffeinated and caffeine-free beverages and the incidence of type 2 diabetes. Researchers examined the intake of caffeinated and non-caffeinated beverages, such as coffee, tea, sugar-sweetened beverages (SSB), and carbonated artificially sweetened beverages (ASB) of 74,749 diabetes-, cancer-, and cardiovascular disease-free women recruited from the 1984-2008 Nurses’ Health Study and 39,053 men drawn from the 1986-2008 Health Professional Follow-up Study. The diabetes relative risk was assessed in all the participants in this study.

Researchers observed a high prevalence of diabetes among regular drinkers of caffeinated SSB, non-caffeinated SSB, and caffeine-free ASB. On the other hand, increased consumption of caffeinated coffee, decaffeinated coffee, and caffeinated tea was found to decrease the risk of developing diabetes in this study. The results of this study show that frequent drinking large quantities of caffeinated coffee, caffeinated tea, and decaffeinated coffee may protect individuals against the development of diabetes.

Note: We certainly question the results of this study. Is this study about sugar or caffeine?
