A New Study Says Drinking Coffee May Help Protect Your Poor, Alcohol-Soaked Liver

Time to give your liver a rest.
Comments

It's the morning after a big night out. You drank excessively. You drank so much that you don't remember drinking excessively. You make coffee to defog your head. More important than fixing that hangover, it turns out the cup o' joe is helping reverse last night's all-out liver assault—sort of. According to a new study reported by Reuters, drinking two additional cups of coffee a day means you are 44 percent less likely to develop liver cirrhosis, a potentially life-threatening breakdown of the liver with no known cure. This is good news. Unfortunately, drinking more coffee does not equate to a lifestyle change—repeated over-consumption of alcohol can't be patched up, just as drinking coffee won't negate a superbly unhealthy diet. But for the more than 430,000 participants in the study, it was something.
