Drinking Coffee May Help Prevent Liver Cancer, Study Suggests

An analysis of 26 studies indicates that drinking caffeinated coffee may help prevent liver cancer, The Guardian reports. The studies involved more than 2.25 million participants, and showed they had a 20 percent lower risk of developing liver cancer if they drank just one cup of coffee a day, compared to those who drank no coffee. The risk was halved for those downing five cups.

As mentioned in the article, coffee has been gaining a good reputation the past few years as having more than a few perks for your health. The news has been so promising that the World Health Organization actually reversed its longtime position that coffee may cause cancer — with one study reporting that drinking at least five cups of coffee a day reduces the risk of some brain cancers by as much as 40 percent.

Additionally, the International Agency for Research on Cancer reported that coffee consumption may actually help reduce chronic disease, including type 2 diabetes and Parkinson’s disease. The caffeine in coffee has also been identified as one of 24 compounds that trigger the release of the enzyme NMNAT2, which may block the effects of neurodegenerative disorders such as dementia and Alzheimer’s.

It also may promote the growth of good gut bacteria. With so many good things going on with coffee, the only thing left to address would be a word of caution on what you put in it, as sugar and artificial sweeteners and creamers can pretty much negate all the healthful features.

Preferably, you drink your coffee black. But if not, opt for real, organic cream as opposed to powdered, fake versions. If you do that, you’ll also find that there is just enough sweetness to the cream that you may not need anything else. If you do need a bit more sweetness, try a shake of Stevia.
