Cirrhosis: Coffee can reduce the risk

OK, so you had one too many glasses of wine the night before, and the thing you desire more than anything else right now is a strong cup of coffee

OK, so you had one too many glasses of wine the night before, and the thing you desire more than anything else right now is a strong cup of coffee.

Natural as this pattern may seem, it seems to make sense medically, too.

Researchers have found that there's an ingredient in coffee that protects against cirrhosis of the liver, often caused by too much alcohol.

When they studied the drinking habits of 125,000 participants, reearchers found that the heavy drinkers' chances of developing alcoholic cirrhosis fell in proportion to the amount of coffee they were drinking.

Tea drinkers and people who drank just one cup of coffee a day had almost no protection, while those who drank four or more cups of coffee every day halved their chances of developing cirrhosis.

As an alternative we suppose they could just stop drinking so much booze in the first place.
