Caffeine Alert: 2 Cups of Coffee per Day Can Damage Your Liver

You might not be familiar with the notion of coffee as a healthy beverage - after all, this popular uplift drink received a lot of bad press and it was long believed it causes heart disease and cancer. 

Now, new research dismisses these claims and suggests that coffee can actually be good for you.

It appears that for most people, sipping freshly brewed coffee can help protect their liver and contributes to their performance and longevity. 

As researchers establish that 3 cups of coffee per day can form a part of a healthy diet and lifestyle, this beverage might once again become the darling of many consumers.
Caffeine Alert: What Coffee Can do to Your Body 

Your liver is one of the most important organs in your body.

Heavy coffee drinkers of the past often smoked and led an inactive lifestyle. It’s more likely that the adverse health effects they experienced were down to their high-risk behaviors, and not connected with the caffeine intake. 

Recent studies found no association between coffee consumption and increased risk of cardiovascular disease and cancer.

The benefits outweigh the risks. It is currently believed that drinking coffee can bring the following benefits:
  • Protection against liver disease, including liver cancer.
  • Protection against Parkinson’s disease.
  • Protection against type 2 diabetes.
  • Improved cognitive function.
  • Lower risk of depression.
  • Support to people already suffering from chronic liver disease, liver cancer, cirrhosis and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.
Some studies even suggest that drinking coffee could reduce overall mortality rates. This is, however, not true for young people consuming humongous amounts of coffee. As always, there are some risks that come with enjoying coffee.

According to research, drinking large amounts of unfiltered coffee (boiled or espresso) elevates cholesterol levels. Also, some people aren’t able to break down caffeine in the body as quickly as others due to a common genetic mutation. 

For them, two or more cups of coffee can indeed increase the risk of heart disease. - Online Sources
