Coffee & Liver Cancer Risk
There appears to be an association between coffee consumption and reduced risk of liver cancer. Data from a new review indicates that drinking three cups of coffee a day may lower the risk of liver cancer by 50%. Coffee's favorable effect may be because it can help prevent diabetes, a known risk factor in the development of liver cancer. Coffee also has a beneficial effect on cirrhosis and liver enzymes. Experts caution that the review only revealed an association, not a cause-and-effect relationship.
