Coffee is Good for the Liver

A study reveals its positive effects against liver disease. A study conducted for nearly 11 years by a team from the University of Southampton revealed that coffee drinkers have a 20% lower risk of developing chronic liver disease than non-drinkers. That's the conclusion of a study led by a team led by Professor Oliver Kennedy from the University of Southampton and published in the BMC Journal of Public Health. The study looked at data from 384,818 participants aged 40 to 69 who said they consumed coffee, and 109,767 participants who didn't. Scientists have been monitoring liver health for about 11 years. The results highlighted 3,600 cases of chronic liver disease, 1,839 cases of simple fatty #liver #disease, and 301 deaths.

Of course, other factors were also taken into account: body mass index, alcohol consumption and smoking. As a result, the scientists found that those who drank the beverage in any amount and in any form had a 20% lower risk of developing chronic liver disease or fatty liver disease than those who did not consume it. In addition, coffee drinkers have a 49% lower risk of dying from chronic liver-related diseases.
