Morning Drink Slashes Diabetes Risk 60%!
I’ve been a doctor for 37 years now.
Yet even after all these years in the business, I’m still amazed at how often mainstream medicine gets it wrong.
I could give you pages of examples.
But for today, I’m highlighting a drink that’s been on the “do not drink list” for too long… especially considering that drinking it can REDUCE your risk of prostate cancer, dementia, and heart disease.
Now there’s even more of a reason to pour yourself a cup to go with your Thanksgiving leftovers.
Because a study finds it can lower your risk of diabetes, too.
Most days, when I sit down to write these health articles, I have a piping hot cup of coffee next to my computer.
I don’t drink it to help wake me up (my body’s natural circadian rhythm and a good dose of morning sun do the trick for that).
Instead, I drink it because it’s one of the healthiest drinks on the planet.
Prostate cancer, heart disease, dementia, stroke—even rosacea—you can lower your risk of all of these conditions simply by drinking more coffee.
And according to a study published in the Journal of Internal Medicine, coffee can lower your risk of type 2 diabetes as well.
Specifically, drinking two cups of coffee per day for seven years lowered the risk of type 2 diabetes by 60% (compared to people who drank less than one cup of coffee per day).
This helps confirm a study from a few years ago showing that people who REDUCED their coffee intake by a cup or more per day INCREASED their risk of diabetes by 17%.
There’s a catch, though.
This beneficial effect is exclusive to filtered coffee. And it makes sense because the filter helps to strain out a chemical called diterpenes that can actually increase cholesterol levels.
And one more thing.
By “coffee,” I don’t mean those sugary, high-priced espresso drinks that pass as coffee these days.
I’m talking about good, old-fashioned, slow-drip coffee.
You can pour in some full-fat milk. Just be sure to skip the sugar.

If you’ve got diabetes or you’re prediabetic—and have been told your blood sugar is in the danger zone—I’m sure you already know the drill.

Just the thought of developing dementia is terrifying. The fact that there are already 7 million Americans over 65 living with the disease—and that will increase to 12 million in the next 15 years—is even scarier.

Ladies, getting screened for breast cancer is vital. I want that to be clear. Breast cancer is currently the second leading cause of cancer death in women. An estimated 12.9 percent of U.S. women will develop this disease in their lifetime, and about 42,000 women still die each year from it. Identifying and treating breast cancer...
In its early stages, glaucoma is often a silent disease with no clear signs of its presence. So, by the time you start to experience symptoms like glare and tunnel vision, you could already have irreversible eye damage. But there is hope.
