Drinking coffee associated with reduced risk of chronic liver disease: Study

Jun 30, 2021 18:31 IST | By Editorji News Desk

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 published in the journal BMC Public Health, 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.

The researchers evaluated the health data of 495,585 people who were tracked for an average of 10 years. Throughout the study, there were 3,600 cases of chronic liver disease or a buildup of fat in the liver. The health benefits were most pronounced among those who drank caffeinated ground coffee. Although instant coffee and decaffeinated coffee were linked with health benefits, ground coffee had the largest effects.

As per the findings, coffee could potentially be used as an affordable and accessible way to help decrease the risk of developing liver disease. Researchers are still learning how coffee might fight liver disease, but they suspect it’s because the popular beverage has anti-inflammatory or anti-fibrotic properties.
