A Few Coffees a Day Keep Liver Disease at Bay: Study

October 26, 2009

In population studies, higher coffee consumption has been inversely associated with chronic liver disease incidence. Now a new study has found that a few cups of coffee a day seem to help prevent the progression of hepatitis C-related liver disease.

Coffee may protect against liver disease by reducing the risk of type-two diabetes, which has been associated with liver disease, or by reducing inflammation, researchers suggested. Caffeine has also previously been found to inhibit liver cancer in rats. Drinking black or green tea, which also contain caffeine, had no association with liver disease progress; however, few study participants consumed tea.

Thanks Inch. But every now and then I read about  studies that claim good things about coffee, chocolates etc. Generally these studies work on small sample sizes, and make headlines on the non-serious parts of news websites :) . Here are few examples lol

This was published in a respected, peer-reviewed, scientific journal called Hepatology, it's the "Official Journal of the American Association For the Study of Liver Diseases."
