This Common Drink May Stop the Progression of Liver Disease

Researchers from the U.S. National Cancer Institute recently found that drinking a few cups of coffee a day may actually halt the progression of liver disease.

Their findings were published in the November 2009 issue of the Journal Hepatology.

The study included 766 participants with hepatitis C who had not responded to earlier treatments with anti-viral drugs.

For 4 years the participants were asked to report their daily coffee consumption and every 3 months liver biopsies were taken to measure the progression of liver disease.

The researchers found that participants who drank 3 or more cups of coffee per day had a 53% reduced risk of progression of liver disease compared to those who drank no coffee.

Although this study did not look into the mechanisms behind these results, previous research has linked coffee intake with reduced risk of type-2 diabetes and inflammation, both of which have been associated with liver disease.

In recent years, approximately 19,000 studies have examined coffee's impact on health. For the most part, the results have been positive.

Recent studies have shown that drinking coffee may reduce the risk of developing dementia by up to 65%. Research has also shown that coffee may slash gut cancer risk, lower the instance of cavities and even reduce the severity and frequency of headaches.
