Does Drinking More Coffee Lower Your Risk Of Liver Cirrhosis? Maybe
Scientists discovered coffee drinkers have a lower risk of developing liver cirrhosis. But that doesn't mean coffee cancels out a night at the bars.By Kaileen Gaul | February 20, 2016
Coffee lovers, rejoice! Science has come up with another reason coffee might be good for your health.
A new review shows drinking more coffee lowers the risk of developing alcohol-related cirrhosis by up to 65 percent. But that doesn't necessarily mean a morning at the coffee shop will cancel out a night at the bar.
There were nine different studies with about 432,000 participants, and eight found the correlation between coffee consumption and a lower risk of developing cirrhosis. But the review didn't account for factors like obesity and diabetes, so there's still more research to be done.
