Treat Cirrhosis with Coffee
Last week we posed and answered the question, Is coffee good for you? We listed a whole host of health benefits of drinking coffee. We noted that healthy organic coffee is the best choice as it is free from many impurities that can show up in a regular cup of coffee. Now we see a new benefit of drinking coffee. You can essentially treat cirrhosis with coffee. Chronic liver disease including cirrhosis kills more than thirty thousand people a year in the USA. According to newly reported research drinking two cups of coffee a day can reduce the risk of dying from cirrhosis by sixty-six percent. Researchers looked at a variety of caffeine-containing drinks but it turns out that you can only treat cirrhosis with coffee. That is to say that only coffee leads to a substantial reduction in the risk of dying from cirrhosis. It is important to note that this benefit does not apply to cirrhosis causes by Type B hepatitis.
Treat Cirrhosis with Coffee and Avoid Alcohol
It is a known fact that cirrhosis of the liver is commonly caused by drinking too much alcohol. The study in the journal Hepatology confirmed that fact. If one has developed cirrhosis for any reason aside from infectious hepatitis one can treat cirrhosis with coffee and cut the risk of dying from that disease down to a third of what it was originally. As the study noted, other caffeine drinks did not have this effect. Thus one can assume that it is the antioxidants in coffee that allow one to treat cirrhosis with coffee, two or cups a day, and reduce the likelihood of cirrhosis related death by two thirds. And, be advised, that if you have cirrhosis and choose to treat cirrhosis with coffee you still need to cut out the alcohol!
