Single Serve Coffee May Cut Alcohol Liver Damage
Okay - not just single serve coffee, but all kinds of coffee. Researchers reported on Monday that drinking coffee cuts the risk of cirrhosis of the liver from alcohol -- by 22 percent per cup each day -- but they stopped short of saying doctors should prescribe coffee for that reason.
Perhaps that's why our liver is in a perfect state of wine/coffee consumption. The report from the Kaiser Permanente Medical Care Program in Oakland, California, was based on a look at data from 125,580 people. We wonder how many people in the study were single serve coffee drinkers?
"These data support the hypothesis that there is an ingredient in coffee that protects against cirrhosis, especially alcoholic cirrhosis," concluded the report published in the Archives of Internal Medicine.
Whatever the cause may be, you might want to check out our sister site LiquorSnob.com for great drinks to go with each cup of coffee you might have over the course of your day. :-)
