More than three glasses of alcohol a day increase the risk of liver cancer.
Coffee may reduce the risk of liver cancer in people who consume large quantities of alcohol, scientists have discovered, according to British Daily Mail.
But at the same time, they warn that more than three glasses of alcohol a day increase the risk of liver cancer, whose appearance is directly related to the abuse of alcohol.
For each cup of coffee daily the risk of liver cancer is 14 percent smaller, reveals a research of the World Cancer Research Fund (WCRF). Scientists and the Foundation analyzed data from 34 studies that included 8.2 million people, of which 24,500 are diagnosed with liver cancer.
Although the study found strong evidence that coffee may reduce the risk of disease, scientists did not recommend a specific amount of coffee you must drink.
The same research team in 2013 found that coffee reduces the risk of uterine cancer. Research of the American Association for the fight against cancer shows that four cups of coffee a day reduce the risk of oral cancer, and previous studies have shown that coffee reduces the risk of colon cancer, stroke and Alzheimer’s dementia.
But too much coffee increases heart rate and blood pressure, scientists warn.
WCRF study has revealed that there is a link between obesity and cancer of the liver as well as physical activity and consumption of fish reduces the risk.
According to the World Health Organization from 2012 liver cancer is one of the five most common in men and this year it has claimed 745,000 lives.
Experts warn that maintaining a healthy body weight and abstaining from alcohol can reduce the number of liver cancer by a quarter.
