Study: Coffee Drinkers Less Likely to Develop Liver Cancer
Drink up. Researchers surveying data from 26 studies and more than 2.25 million people found that drinking five cups of coffee a day is correlated with a 50 percent drop in hepatocellular carcinoma, the most common form of liver cancer and second leading cause of cancer mortality worldwide. One cup per day reduced the risk by 20 percent, and two cups by 35 percent. The research team cautioned that they’re not suggesting suddenly upping your caffeine intake to five cups a day, as other potential adverse effects are unknown.
