Ladies! Your Daily Dose of Coffee and Tea May Cut the Risk of Death from Diabetes

Women with diabetes who regularly drink a cup of coffee, tea or other caffeinated beverages can no longer die from cardiovascular disease and cancer. According to a study presented at the annual meeting of the European Association for the Study of Diabetes (EASD) in Lisbon, Portugal, consumed more caffeine consumers, less risk of dying compared to those who have never used Previous research has suggested that coffee may prevent or delay the risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

The protective effect was dependent on the source of caffeine: higher levels of coffee caffeine consumption were associated with a lower risk of death from any cause, in particular cardiovascular disease; while women who consumed more caffeine tea were less likely to die of cancer. The average daily consumption of coffee is between 100mg and 300mg per day, depending on the age and country.

Dr. Joao Sergio and Professor Davide Carvalho of the University of Porto examined the association between varying levels of caffeine consumption and mortality in more than 3,000 men and women with diabetes from 1999 to 2010. Participants reported their consumption of coffee caffeine, tea and soft drinks when they entered the study using 24-hour diet reminders.

Over the course of 11 years of research, approximately 618 participants died. The researchers found that women with diabetes who had consumed up to 100 milligrams per day had a 51 percent lower chance of dying than those who did not consume caffeine and that women with diabetes who had consumed at least 100 to 200 milligrams per day had a 57 percent lower risk of death compared to non-users.

Among diabetic women who consumed more than 200 milligrams per day (making 2 regular cups of coffee), the reduced risk of death was about 66%. When divided into four groups of tea consumption, the high consumption of coffee among tea consumers had a cancer risk reduction of 80% compared to women whose coffee consumption was zero tea.

‘Mitti ka game’ kabaddi returns to its roots

Surjeet Narwal’s body was sick during an exhausting workout on Monday night, but the demands made on him had barely begun. The 26-year-old, who is part of the Haryana Steelers Pro Kabbaddi League (PKL) franchise, found his phone buzzing with multiple messages, all making the same request.

“Bhaishaab ticket dila do (Please organize tickets for us)”, the texts are read. Narwal must remember and explain himself with discretion. “I have to tell you that I do not really have passes to give, say everything I have, really, it’s new to me,” he said by telephone. It is interrupted in the middle of the conversation by another ticket request. He apologizes once over the phone and again says no to hope in front of him.

A ticket to see a Pro Kabaddi League (PKL) match, on his Haryana leg, seems to be a necessity in this part of the country. He is also desperately elusive. This does not prevent people from sleeping on the day of the game outside the Rai Motilal Nehru Sports School where the games are played. Rai is a short drive from Sonepat’s Grand Trunk Road to Delhi.

There are more than a few scalpers here, but they also hope to put their hand on a ticket to turn around by almost three times their value. The printing on the wall of the ticket box with matching dates followed by the words “out of print”, in capital letters, indicates that your hunting will not be easy. In terms of marketing, this stage was a success. Tickets are not cheap. The most expensive for a high seat in a corner of the indoor place of 2,000 seats were valued at Rs 400. The closest retail stock – if it can be marked unmarked for Rs 1,000.

An explanation of this demand is simply a lack of supply. To put it all, there is not much to do in Sonepat or even in Haryana, which borders on the national capital of New Delhi. It’s not funny, there are no glittering malls and the shops are closed before 9pm. So when the PKL, perhaps the most watched Indian league after the Indian League, comes to town for the first time, it’s understandable a big deal. Olympic bronze medalist Sakshi Malik was there the first day, while Yogeshwar Dutt – another bronze winner at the Olympic Games sat in the audience as well. These are not just celebrities. You have teenagers with pointy hairstyles by clicking on selfies and pictures under the title #dhaakadboys next to old Stoics who use pagi (turban) with their arms firmly crossed. There are even some Chinese engineers from one of the many international companies in the industrial districts nearby. Locals use handmade posters, make an ear fracture rack measured at 122 decibels for television cameras. They shout with indulgence “Ehi Mera Haryana (as is my Haryana)” when a writer shouts “Doodh, dahi ka khana (a milk and cottage cheese diet)”.

There is some irony in this scenario of the late arrival of PKL in Haryana. As it is the style of the talent mother with sports, no state is synonymous with kabaddi as Haryana. State players and in particular the Indian Sports Authority training center at Sonepat formed most of the Indian team as soon as the national team won the inaugural gold medal for the sport at the 1990 Asian Games. They counted the parties in the PKL also 93 players in only the 2017 edition – despite the league considered the state unworthy to have its own team until the fifth season. Haryana Steelers, who makes his PKL debut this season, has 13 local players in a 22-player squad.

It is not only the Indians who wonder why this is so. The inhabitants of Nizampur, a border village of Delhi-Haryana with a reputation for prodigious talent, say that before the 2014 Asian Games in Guangzhou, they had some visitors from China. Guests apparently visited the local stadium, questioned the players about their diet and even took soil samples from the village to try to discover the mystery of how the village produced such talent. “Perhaps by air or water, but kabaddi is in our blood,” says Mohit Chhillar, a native of Nizampur and one of the inhabitants of the city of Kabaddi. the stars of the Steelers.

“Go to a village and ask someone,” Hum khelte (We were playing). “From each house there will be a child playing Nickler nahi hogi, from Khelenge (They may not have shorts, but

No Work No Pay’: Kamal Haasan’s New Barb At Ruling AIADMK

Actor Kamal Haasan fired more tweets against the AIADMK regime in Tamil Nadu this morning after confirming earlier this week that he plans to launch his own political party.
“No job, not just pay for the government.” Employees, “How do horse trade politicians languish in the seasons?” Honorable court warns teachers on strike.

I ask the court to issue similar warnings to those who refuse to attend work, “the 62-year-old actor tweeted a barrier to the 19 AIADMK rebel lawmakers who have been kidnapped at different daytime stations for the fallen party number 2 TTV Dinakaran, as he looks for ways to oust Prime Minister E Palaniswami.

He commented on the government’s decision not to pay salaries to some 33,000 teachers who are on strike with government employees to demand increases. Madras High Court warned teachers Wednesday not to boycott classes to join the protests. Yesterday the Palaniswami government told the court that the absence of teachers from the courts would be considered unauthorized and will not be paid.

In recent months, Kamal Haasan has regularly weighed on issues of tweets charging policy guidance from the AIADMK government, fueling speculation that he is preparing for a related political career. Unlike the other south superstar Rajnikanth, which left fans of riddles with ambiguous words on the question of whether and when he will join politics, Kamal Haasan has seemed increasingly clear that his political beginnings will soon produce.

He recently hinted that he could come after working on the Tamil Bigg Boss television show he has presented, which will end next month.
In an interview with The Quint earlier this week, he said he was considering launching a political party. “Yes, I think of these lines, not by choice, but by restriction. What political party can offer me a platform or ideology that corresponds to my objectives of political reform?” He said.


Since the actor visited the home of the main minister of Kerala Pinarayi Vijayan for lunch in Thiruvananthapuram earlier this month, it was speculated that he could choose to go left. Kamal Haasan wanted to deny that he was joining left, pointing out after lunch that Mr. Vijayan is only a friend of many years who admires and hopes to learn.

Kamal Haasan visited Minister Kerala, Pinarayi Vijayan Thiruvananthapuram, for lunch.
“My color is clearly visible in the 40 years I’ve worked in film, certainly not saffron … I want to be in the middle of things, not seen anywhere,” said.

Recently, the actor also attended a function hosted by the main opposition party of Tamil Nadu, the DMK, sharing its leader MK Stalin.

Kamal Haasan’s war against AIADMK included accusations that the government of Chief E Palaniswami has contributed little to curbing crime and corruption in the state.

Last month, he said that everyone had to face corruption in Tamil Nadu; when a minister threatened to sue him for what he called “misleading remarks,” the actor had asked his fans to flood state departments with emails, expose their experiences of corruption, and having dared the government to arrest everyone.
