Need to feel better about drinking coffee? Here you go: it’ll reduce your risk of liver cancer.
A meta-study published in the Journal of Gastroenterology and Hepatology found that drinking coffee reduced incidences of hepatocellular carcinoma—the cause of ninety per cent of cases of liver cancer worldwide—by forty per cent. Researchers examined sixteen studies and 3,153 cases of cancer. They also found that drinking three cups of coffee a day decreased the risk of liver cancer by fifty per cent.
Of course, if you’re drinking that much coffee per day, other studies say that you’re at greater risk of other kinds of death—so maybe keep it under three cups.
