Drinking Coffee vs Getting Cirrhosis

COFFEEOur hippie friends keep telling us we should drink green tea instead of coffee, because it has antioxidants in it. We don't drink tea. We drink coffee. A lot of it. In fact, we like our coffee like we like our women - hot, bitter and full of bourbon.

Tea is supposed to be good for you because it fights free radicals. We just found out that coffee is good for you because it fights cirrhosis of the liver. Advantage: Coffee. Considering our lifestyle, we're considering starting mainline coffee injections instead of just drinking it.

Researchers reported on Monday that drinking coffee cuts the risk of cirrhosis of the liver from alcohol -- by 22 percent per cup each day -- but they stopped short of saying doctors should prescribe coffee for that reason.

Perhaps that's why our liver is in a perfect state of wine/coffee consumption. The report from the Kaiser Permanente Medical Care Program in Oakland, California, was based on a look at data from 125,580 people.
