Could you provide a source for these  claims?  As is, the studies mentioned 
are unknown  - no reference  to who produced the studies, where they were 
done and how they were  conducted.

This is  relevant because of the diabetic population among the blind  

Coffee has been shown to lessen the risk of some of the  country’s most 
common illnesses. Moderate coffee consumption – one to three  cups a day – 
have been associated with a lower risk for heart attacks,  especially in women. 
Some studies have shown a lower risk for cancers like  endometrial, 
prostate and some breast cancers. And coffee has also been linked  to a lower risk 
ofParkinson’s disease.

It’s also been shown to lower  your risk of diabetes.
“Most of our research has been on diabetes – there  are 35 studies now on 
coffee and diabetes,” van Dam says. “These have been  quite consistent – 
people drinking more coffee have a lower risk of diabetes.  It is remarkably 
consistent. It’s hard to imagine another factor that coffee  drinkers have 
that would be so effective.”

And it may help reduce the  risk for developing depression. 
Women who drank two or three cups of  coffee a day were 15 percent less 
likely to develop depression when compared  to women who drank just one cup a 
day, one study found. 

The answer is,  as the answer often is: You be you. If you don't like 
coffee, the evidence of  its benefits isn't strong enough for nutrition 
scientists to recommend that  you start drinking it. If you do, the evidence of its 
harms isn't strong  enough for them to recommend that you stop. 

“If you like coffee and  you don’t have a specific health condition – you 
can just kind of enjoy your  coffee, regularly, as you like it,” van Dam 
says. “It’s fine to drink three,  four, five cups of coffee a day, at least 
based on what we have found on the  research available.”
