Your Healthy Family: Coffee could help reduce liver damage

Posted: Updated:
COLORADO SPRINGS -

New research suggests drinking more coffee could help reduce liver damage caused by too much food and alcohol. 
The study included about two thousand patients with liver cirrhosis, which kills more than one million people each year. 
It showed drinking two additional cups of coffee a day was linked to a 44-percent lower risk of developing cirrhosis. 
That risk dropped even more among those who drank three or four cups of coffee. 
Experts aren't sure which compounds in coffee protect the liver, but it's safe to say loading up on sugary lattes is not a good way to prevent cirrhosis.
