Drinking coffee cuts alcohol's harmful effects

koekoeh says:

CHICAGO - Coffee may counteract alcohol’s poisonous effects on the liver and help prevent cirrhosis, researchers say.

In a study of more than 125,000 people, one cup of coffee per day cut the risk of alcoholic cirrhosis by 20 percent. Four cups per day reduced the risk by 80 percent. The coffee effect held true for women and men of various ethnic backgrounds.

It is unclear whether it is the caffeine or some other ingredient in coffee that provides the protection, said study co-author Dr. Arthur Klatsky of the Kaiser Permanente Division of Research in Oakland, Calif.

didn't say anything else....yes too much caffeine is unhealthy but a certain amount is considered healthy!

it's like that with a lot of things, if you drink 1 glass of redwine everyday it is good for your heart if you drink a lot more...we all know alcohol isn't that healthy then don't we...
