For many of us, beginning the morning with a rich cup of delicious joe is the best way to start off any day. The good news is, this daily habit may be giving you more than just a boost of energy in the morning.
A recent study on the effects of coffee revealed that a daily habit may be helping java lovers do more than just perk up in the morning; it may also be helping to prevent certain types of cancer.
Whether you drink it for the taste or for its effects, if you are consuming the brown brew regularly, the lower your risk may be of getting hepatocellular carcinoma, or liver cancer. The research now exists to prove it.
A recent study done by the University of Southern California Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center was looking to expand on some of the known health benefits of drinking coffee. According to their research, the more you consume during the day, the lower your risk may be of getting hepatocellular carcinoma.
This can be added to a list of other medical ailments that coffee drinkers are less prone to, such as type 2 diabetes, Parkinson’s disease and stroke.
According to a statement, the research team behind this study believes that those who may be at a high risk of HCC should attempt to incorporate more into their diet.
This means, if you are like many of us and are already drinking at least a cup of day, chances are you are doing your liver a favor.
In addition to brewing up a cup of your favorite blend, there are other coffee-inspired snacks that can be consumed, for those who want to add more of the drink into their diet.
Fortunately, with home brewing devices, many who are worried about the expense of a daily habit will find that incorporating more into their diet can actually be an affordable expense, costing just cents a day.
While the research on this matter has not found that coffee will miraculously cure cancer, it has discovered that the daily habit that many of us have may just lead to a healthier life, one that involves less of a risk of developing serious cancers.
