Cirrhosis damage cut with coffee

Since we may talk about drinking once in awhile on here, we thought we should pass along this helpful news. Coffee may not cure your hangover but it apparently does help your liver.
Compared with people who never drank coffee, those who drank one cup a day or less were about 30 percent less likely to develop alcoholic cirrhosis. The more coffee they drank, the lower the risk. At one to three cups per day, the risk was lowered by 40 percent, and those who drank more than four cups a day reduced their risk by 80 percent. Coffee had no statistically significant effect on the risk for nonalcoholic cirrhosis.
Additionally, tea has no significant impact indicating that its not caffeine that is the helpful aid.
