Drinking two cups of coffee per day may lower risk of developing cirrhosis by 44 percent“Cirrhosis is potentially fatal and there is no cure as such,” said lead study author Dr. Oliver Kennedy of Southampton University in the U.K.. “Therefore, it is significant that the risk of developing cirrhosis may be reduced by consumption of coffee, a cheap, ubiquitous and well-tolerated beverage,” he told Business Insider via email.
According to the study, drinking two cups of coffee per day may lower the risk of developing cirrhosis by 44 percent.
“Kennedy and colleagues did a pooled analysis of average coffee consumption across earlier studies to see how much adding two additional cups each day might influence the odds of liver disease… In eight of the nine studies analyzed, increasing coffee consumption by two cups a day was associated with a significant reduction in the risk of cirrhosis.”
All but one study illustrated a correlation between increased coffee consumption and a reduction in liver damage.

“Compared to no coffee consumption, researchers estimated one cup a day was tied to a 22% lower risk of cirrhosis. With two cups, the risk dropped by 43%, while it declined 57% for three cups and 65% with four cups,” Business Insider reports.
