Introducing: Mister Immortal

Updated on December 6, 2012

Hey, friends, please check out my counterpart, Mr. Immortal, at MisterImmortal.com.

If you liked my post on coffee, then Mr. Immortal wants you to know there is new research out that says coffee drinking can reduce your chances of type 2 diabetes: 8% for women, 4% for men.

That's kinda weird, because, in the short term, caffeine increases blood glucose levels and increases insulin resistance, which is the opposite of what we want. But, in the long run, according to a study that followed nearly 80,000 women and more than 40,000 men from the 1980s to 2008, the net effect is good.

      Thanks for your hub which confirms another benefit of coffee when it is consumed without cream or sugar. This news will certainly put a smile on many faces out there including mine!

      Epi,

      Cutting down on your coffee consumption as you doctor suggests, is a good idea. Remember, it's supposed to be one cup of quality coffee, no sugar, no milk. This will give you the great benefits of coffee without any negative side effects.

      Good afternoon Cathy from lake erie time ontario canada 12:00pm and I have high blood pressue but it seems to be under controls with my pills but sometimes my family doctor will ask me how much coffee I drink - I don't smoke and my weight is fine. I still like my wake-up coffee in the morning although I have eliminated one cup of coffee each morning by drinking one cup less - there are interesting facts - often modern medicine seems to contradict its finds - sending you warm wishes and good energy and thank you for your wonderful hub presentations - they are also eye opening and enlightening

      Since I drink a cup of coffee every day, the news is wonderful! I don't know what I would do without my soothing drink each morning. Thanks for the update.

      I just read about the latest coffee news as well. It seems my addiction to java may just be paying off.
