Here we go again! Another new study points to the continuing reports that coffee may be an important therapeutic agent.
This study comes from the UK from a researcher by the name of Dr. OIiver Kennedy from Southampton University, who led a group of researchers who reviewed nine previous studies covering what happened to 430,000 people.
Researchers determined that people could cut the chances of developing cirrhosis of the liver by 65% if they consumed four cups of coffee per day. Drinking one cup yielded a 22% percent less chance; two cups -- 43% less chance; and three cups -- 57% less chance.
This follows a study two years ago which came to a similar conclusion. A study from Dr. Woon-Puay Koh from Duke-NUS Graduate Medical School Singapore and the National University of Singapore found that those who drank two or more cups of coffee per day had a 66% less chance of dying from cirrhosis.
Something in coffee's over 1,000 bioactive compounds is giving this protection!
