Coffee Consumption Can Reduce Risk Of Liver Cancer

People everywhere love coffee. A single cup can help people feel more awake and help them shrug off their morning sluggishness. Today’s coffee drinkers may worry that a cup can have some negative side effects. Fortunately, a new study will bring them hope. Drinking coffee not only apparently helps people stay awake, it can even reduce the risk of of certain kinds of cancer.

 

Liver Health

 

The liver is one of the most important organs in the body. If the liver breaks down, it can cause serious and lasting health problems. As it turns out, drinking coffee can help the liver and may even prevent liver cancer. This is the conclusion of a new study that looked at a possible correlation between drinking coffee and liver cancer. More than 40,000 Americans will develop liver cancer this year alone. As it turns out, coffee drinking can apparently be highly beneficial for those concerned about the health of their liver.

 

Huge Study

 

A new study out of the United Kingdom looked at more than twenty-six separate studies. They came to a startling conclusion: drinking up to five cups a day can cut the risk of the most common form of liver cancer by about half. They examined more than two million people and studied their coffee drinking habits. They also looked at whether or not the coffee was caffeinated or decaffeinated. All factors kept pointing to the same thing. Coffee is very good for the liver.

 

Even Small Amounts

 

As it turned out, even small amounts of coffee can be highly beneficial. Those who only drank a single cup saw a twenty percent decrease. Drinking up to two cups of coffee was correlated with a thirty-five percent decrease in the number of liver cancer cases. Researchers aren’t quite sure why so the risk of cancer drops so drastically but they are heartened by the fact that drinking coffee is so clearly good for people’s liver health.
