New research from the United Kingdom has found that drinking coffee is associated with a lowered risk of chronic liver disease and other liver health conditions. The study, which published in the journal BMC Public Health on June 22, found that coffee drinkers had a 21 percent reduced risk of liver disease and a 49 percent lower risk of death from chronic liver disease. Of the group, 78 percent consumed either caffeinated ground coffee, instant coffee, or decaffeinated coffee, and 22 percent consumed no coffee. The coffee drinkers in the study had a 21 percent reduced risk of developing chronic liver disease and a 20 percent lower risk of fatty liver disease. “It may have anti-inflammatory or anti-fibrotic properties, the two main and interrelated pathways to liver disease and liver cancer,” Taddei said.
