Drinking more coffee might help reduce the kind of liver damage that’s associated with overindulging in food and alcohol, a review of existing studies suggests.
Researchers analyzed data from nine previously published studies with a total of more than 430,000 participants and found that drinking two additional cups of coffee a day was linked to a 44 percent lower risk of developing liver cirrhosis.
While just two cups a day brought about a "significant" reduction in risk, the researchers concluded that the risk from liver cirrhosis declined 57 percent for three cups and a whopping 65 percent with four cups of coffee a day.
I wonder if drinking Coffee Stouts would be as effective. That's a study I'd like to take part in.

So, my question. Define "cup". I drink one mug of coffee each morning. We won't discuss my beer intake...ReplyDelete
Someone once told me they drank "too much" coffee. I didn't comprehend.Delete

A "book club" at Devils Backbone. Good one Tommy. ;-)Delete
Seriously, sounds like fun.
I am on my second cup now, may have to brew another pot for a third and fourth, then go have a beer.ReplyDelete
That sounds like an excellent plan!Delete
It's funny how coffee, a drink so assumed to be a species of vice when I was a kid, but which I took up anyway now seems to be good for you.ReplyDelete
It's nice to know we made fewer bad decisions than we were led to believe.Delete
