Good News For Coffee & Beer Drinkers

If the claims from a recent study are true, I won't be moderating my coffee addiction anytime soon. As reported by the New York Post (a renowned scientific journal)...
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.

See "Drinking more coffee may reverse liver damage from booze" for more.

  1. So, my question. Define "cup". I drink one mug of coffee each morning. We won't discuss my beer intake...

  4. 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.
