Coffee consumption reduced risk of diabetes for Indians
American Indians who drank more than 12 cups of coffee a day reduced their risk of developing Type 2 diabetes by nearly 70 percent, according to researchers at the University of Oklahoma.

But researchers don't think its wise to start drinking more coffee, which can lead to heart problems. They want to try to find out why coffee produced such an effect.

The study was published online in the Nutrition, Metabolism & Cardiovascular Diseases. It was conducted as part of the Strong Heart Study.
