Impact of coffee on cirrhosis
Dr Oliver Kennedy, a researcher from Southampton University lead a research team who analyzed the data from 9 studies on coffee’s effect on alcohol consumption. The studies included 430,000 participants. Of these, 1,990 were diagnosed with cirrhosis. 8 out of 9 studies found that increasing coffee consumption reduced the risk of developing cirrhosis. Compared to non-coffee drinkers, it was found that drinking 1 cup of coffee per day reduced the risk of cirrhosis by 22%, 2 cups of coffee per day reduced the risk of cirrhosis by 43%, 3 cups of coffee per day reduced the risk of cirrhosis by 57%, and finally, 4 cups of coffee per day reduced the risk of cirrhosis by 65%. Participants who drank filtered coffee had greater protective benefits than those who drank boiled coffee.2
