Weekly Health Tips

COFFEE MAY PREVENT LIVER DISEASE

Posted: 09.7.2016
Drinking two cups of coffee a day may reduce the risk of developing cirrhosis of the liver by 44%, according to a new study. Researchers studied 400,000 participants and found the risk of cirrhosis decreased as the number of cups of coffee increased (3 cups a day lowered risk by 57%, and 4 cups by 65%). Researchers caution that while drinking coffee may lower the risk of cirrhosis, it won't counteract the harmful effects of excessive alcohol intake or the damage that results from being overweight or obese. Also, these results may not apply to coffee drinks with lots of whipped cream and sugar.
