New Delhi :  

All the coffee and tea lovers out there, there's some good news for you.

According to a new study, regular consumption of coffee and tea may help lower the death risk in women who are suffering from diabetes. 

As a matter of fact, over 80 percent of the world's population consumes caffeine on a regular basis. If we talk about the daily average coffee consumption, then it is between 100  milligrams (mg) and 300 mg per day, which depends on the age and country.

 Several studies have shown that drinking coffee is beneficial to counter the risk of death, but little is known as such about the role of caffeine in reducing the risk of death in people with diabetes. 

Researchers have analysed the association between the levels of caffeine consumption and mortality in more than 3,000 men and women who had diabetes from 1999 to 2010.

The participants had to report their caffeine intake from tea, coffee and soft drinks while they were part of the study. During the course of the eleven-year study, 618 people passed away.

The research indicated that women with diabetes who consumed coffee up to 100 mg per day, were 51 per cent less likely to suffer death when compared to those who didn't drink caffeine at all. 

Those women who consumed 100-200mg of coffee per day, faced 57 per cent lower risk of death when compared to non-consumers. Those who consumed more than 200mg per day, equivalent to two regular cups of coffee, faced a reduced death risk of 66 per cent.

In case of men, no such beneficial effect was noticed. It was also revealed that there was a reduction in cancer-related mortality amongst the females who consumed more caffeine from tea.
