This Just In...Coffee Can Save Your Liver

coffee-can-save-liver-x400

Did you know that cancer is the leading cause of death around the world? On top of that, stats say liver cancer is the most deadliest forms.

SCARY FACT

The World Cancer Research Fund says that the total number of cases reported in 2012, 782,451, is going to increase 70% by 2035.

GOOD NEWS

According to a new study released by the World Cancer Research Fund, coffee can cut liver cancer risk by 14%.

The evidence for coffee was generally consistent, and the dose-response meta-analysis showed a significant decreased risk of liver cancer per one cup per day.

That's good news for the dudes out there. WHY?

Cause guys are more likely to develop liver cancer than women, and old dudes have even greater risk.

Of course, many factors go into the stats. Your weight, drinking habits, smoking and all those generally agreed upon, "bad habits" boost your likelihood of developing cancer.

Back to the good news.

The WCRF study went on to say;

Both coffee and coffee extracts have also been shown to reduce the expression of genes involved in inflammation, and the effects appear to be most pronounced in the liver.

The study didn't identify the "WHY?" question, they simply concluded that a higher consumption of coffee probably protects against liver cancer. 

Conclusion

Drink more coffee. Less risk of liver cancer.

Not that we needed another reason, but thanks for that, WCRF.
