A cup of coffee could reduce the risk of liver cancer. Researchers have recently revealed this, apart from cutting the chance of this disease, there are a number of health benefits that come from coffee.
How Drinking Coffee Can Help
A detailed research on the effect of coffee in the body has ensured that the risk of a most common form of liver cancer (hepatocellular cancer) tends to decrease with a supplemented intake of coffee. The researchers also said that the chance of liver cancer comes down to 50 percent if anyone is able to drink five cups of coffee every day.
The researchers have observed that even decaffeinated coffee was noticed to lessen the risk of hepatocellular cancer or liver cancer but obviously to a lesser effect. According to Financial Tribune, persons suffering from liver disease usually tend to have the greatest risk of developing hepatocellular cancer. This is mainly for those patients whose livers have been damaged through infection with hepatitis B or C, autoimmune disease, chronic liver inflammation, or alcohol abuse.
According to Dr. Oliver Kennedy from the University of Southampton in the United Kingdom and his team members, augmenting the consumption of coffee could reduce the possibility of developing hepatocellular cancer, even among adults with pre-existing liver disease. The researchers finally came to the conclusion by conducting an organized review and meta-analysis of over 26 observational studies that consist of information on over 2.25 million adults.
The Antioxidant And Other Properties In Coffee Lower The Rate Of Liver Disease
A report released by Medical Express confirmed that the compound molecules found in coffee contains antioxidants, anti-inflammatory, anticarcinogenic and some additional beneficial properties that scientists believe that these all elements lower the rate of chronic liver disease, including liver cancer. However, the effect of coffee on different groups, such as pregnant women is needed to be looked into more by the researchers.
