This time the Cubicle news and info wanted to write info about "the health benefits of tea and coffee to lower the risk of type 2 diabetes". Do you already know about it before? If you do not know it, please read info about tea and coffee may protect against type 2 diabetes here. Happy reading...

From the results of studies by experts, was drinking tea and coffee is highly recommended for diabetics. Because someone who is drinking coffee and tea regularly can significantly reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes. Rachel Huxley, head of the research team from the George Institute, International Health in Australia said that every cup of coffee and tea per day can reduce diabetes risk by 7 percent.

Even according to the study drank three to four cups of coffee per day can reduce diabetes risk by 25 percent, rather than just drink one glass only. Facts are based on study conducted by a team from the George Institute, International Health in Australia.

According to USDA studies and other studies, drinking a cup of coffee before a meal, or when the stomach is empty can be useful lowers blood sugar levels fluctuate up to 50%.Benefits tea and coffee could have lasted up to all day.

The researchers suspect that the cause of why tea and coffee may reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes are the presence of anti-oxidants and some other substances such as magnesium, lignan and chlorogenic acid in coffee and tea that play a role in reducing the risk of diabetes and slow the absorption of sugar in digestion. Chlorogenic acid also stimulates the formation of GLP-1, a chemical that increases insulin (a hormone that regulates the absorption of sugar into the cells). Other substance in coffee that is trigonelin (pro-vitamin B3) is also thought to help slow the absorption of glucose.

Although there are various researches that state the benefits of coffee and tea may reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes, but a diabetes expert from England, Dr Victoria King, have the opinion, that the results of the study should be considered cautiously. So even though people who drink tea and coffee are relatively lower risk of diabetes, but it should be noted also physical activity and diet that made that person. This means that diabetes mellitus have a very close relationship with one's lifestyle patterns, such as eating a healthy diet, high in fiber, avoid saturated fats and sugary foods and excessive exercise. Healthy lifestyle is a major step to prevent you from diabetes mellitus.

In previous articles, News and Info Cubicle has written about SOPA and PIPA blackout day, this time Cubicle News and Info will write more about SOPA and PIPA - Here are the Reasons SOPA and PIPA blackout movement. Happy Reading..

Blackout movement which carried thousands of Internet sites to oppose the SOPA Bill or Stop Online Piracy Act and PIPA or Protect IP Act, which was carried by the Congress of the United States (U.S.), has attracted the attention of world public. But, what are SOPA and PIPA?
Let us discuss this a bit in Cubicle News and Info:
SOPA bill or Stop Online Piracy Act was first rolled out on October 26, 2011 by Congress to the United States House of Parliament. SOPA proposed to expand the capabilities of law enforcement in the U.S. and the copyright holders in the fight against trade in copyright and intellectual property through online media.

With the SOPA, U.S. Department of Justice and the copyright holder may apply to the court to take action against a site that violates copyright. And based on that application the court may close the ad lines that go to sites that have been deemed violators of copyrights, limiting the search engine associated with the site, up to block it. SOPA also can take action against the spread of content that is not accompanied by permission to the penalty of five years in prison.

Even SOPA provides immunity to Internet service, such as online payment and ad networks that voluntarily sever ties with violator’s site. The site can be held accountable for the losses of the copyright holder.

PIPA bill was first proposed by Sen. Patrick Leahy (May 12, 2011). PIPA contains about setting offense caused by the distribution of copies of counterfeit or illegal copies and counterfeit goods.

PIPA target site was not domiciled in the U.S., but the site is registered and operated from outside the U.S. With authorization from the U.S. Department of Justice, the site of offenders will not be found by your Internet or blocked. Even providers of financial transactions, Internet advertising services, as well as Internet service providers would be prohibited from engaging in financial transactions with the site by removing the link. Also search engines like will be ordered to remove or disable access to that domain.

The plan council members will vote on the PIPA bill is related to on January 24, 2012. As for the SOPA bill, Congress still must conduct a hearing with council members.

Currently the second bill (SOPA and PIPA) is still in the process of legislation.

SOPA and PIPA seem to not only have an impact on the U.S. site. Instead, the targets of the bill are the sites that are outside the U.S.

Through the Bill, later the site outside the U.S. that is considered copyright infringement can be blocked unilaterally.

The site manager is doing the action blackout, consider SOPA and PIPA could threaten freedom of expression and undermine the atmosphere of the online world that is conducive. They worry about these rules can be a weapon for the company owned the rights holders to sue various websites blindly.

Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) also rejected the SOPA and PIPA. EFF said that the bill does not protect false accusation.

For example, a site accused of violating, but proven innocent, still the site would be harmed. They will not receive compensation from blocking ads and payment services.
