Coffee Drinkers Are Less At Risk Of Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease

February 2, 2012: 12:00 AM EST
U.S. researchers who studied the correlation between coffee consumption and the severity of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease confirmed that coffee caffeine cuts the risk of advanced fibrosis. The study involved 306 participants who were asked about their  caffeine coffee habits and were categorized into four groups, each with varying severities of fatty liver, from none to stage four. Analysis showed that the higher the consumption of coffee caffeine, the lower the risk of  hepatic fibrosis. The researchers said that "patients with [fatty liver disease] may benefit from moderate coffee consumption that decreases risk of advanced fibrosis.”
