Drinking coffee halves risk of liver cancer

Drinking coffee every day reduces your chances of developing liver cancer

Drinking coffee every day reduces your chances of developing liver cancer. Three cups a day halve the risk of HCC, or hepatocellular carcinoma, the most common type of liver cancer.
HCC is the third most lethal form of cancer, but your chances of developing it can be reduced when you drink coffee, new research suggests. People who regularly drink coffee can reduce their risk by 40 per cent, but the risk drops to 50 per cent in those who drink three cups a day.
The link between coffee and liver cancer has already been noted, but researchers from Milan in Italy have included the very latest studies to confirm earlier findings. The finding adds to the growing health benefits of coffee. Earlier studies have shown it helps prevent diabetes and cirrhosis of the liver.
