Another point for Coffee Drinkers.....Protection against Liver Fibrosis!



The hot topic more recently discussed has been the health and risk of coffee. In Nutrit's blog, she presented an article that discussed the different systems in our body that can be affected from caffeine consumption. In contrast, Rayhana’s blog disputed that coffee consumption is in fact good for you. In the study that Rayhana talked about, the risk of diabetes is actually decreased by 33% with coffee consumption compared to non-coffee drinkers. Another study that I found in the Archives of Internal Medicine also suggests that coffee can behave as a protective agent. The study confirms that there is an ingredient in coffee that may help against liver inflammation and advanced fibrosis and cirrhosis. Check it out, “Can Coffee Help Prevent Progression of Liver Fibrosis?”

There was also a study(can't remember the source of the study) that found Lattes actually allow a chemical reaction to ccur that enhances your calcium absorption thus resulting in higher calcium absorption than from milk.
