NORWALK - Researchers found that drinking coffee and tea can help reduce a person?s risk to type 2 diabetes.

"An analysis of 31 studies serves up strong evidence," Dr. Glenn Siegal says.

The data found in the Archives of Internal Medicine shows that one cup can reduce the risk of developing the disease by 7 percent and three or four cups would reduce the risk by 25 percent.

Dr. Siegel says that although research shows that drinking coffee and tea can help prevent diabetes, he warns that caffeine is still off-limits to those with heart conditions.
