New Study Suggest Coffee May Be Medicine for the Liver

According to a new study drinking three to four cups of either decaffeinated or caffeinated coffee can reduce one’s risk of getting or dying from chronic liver diseases.

Coffee drinkers, according to the study, were 21% less likely to develop chronic liver disease, had a 20% less chance of chronic or fatty liver disease and 49% less likely to die from chronic liver disease than non-coffee drinkers.

The study comes from the journal called BMC Public Health.

Author’s stated that coffee is widely accessible and could even be an avenue toward preventative treatment for chronic liver disease.

This would be very valuable for people with poor or no health insurance and those who live in countries or areas with less access to medical care.

 

 

 

New Study Claims Coffee Won’t Make Your Heart “Flutter”

If you’ve been worried that coffee will cause heart palpitations or cardiac arrhythmia a new study will have you relieved that your daily coffee drinking should not in fact cause this heart ailment.

Actually, daily coffee use has been connected with a lower occurrence of developing an arrhythmia like atrial fibrillation (which is when the heart races or “flutters” in the chest), according to the study.

The study, from JAMA Internal Medicine, monitored coffee consumption by more than 386,000 people over three years and compared that with arrhythmia rates, which could include atrial fibrillation (flutters).

After adjusting for things like lifestyle habits, demographics and other diseases and conditions that might cause flutters, the study found that each additional daily cup of coffee lowered risks of arrhythmia by 3%.
