De­spite what we tell our doc­tors, many of us reg­u­larly drink too much al­co­hol. If that’s you, cut back on the booze while in­creas­ing your cof­fee in­take and you’ll sig­nif­i­cantly lower your risk of liver dis­eases, in­clud­ing can­cer. Just one cup of cof­fee a day could lower your risk of de­vel­op­ing liver can­cer by 20% while hav­ing two cups cuts it by 35%, ac­cord­ing to anal­y­sis of 26 stud­ies on two mil­lion sub­jects pub­lished in the BMJ Open jour­nal. Five cups a day could halve your risk – and the study found de­caf pro­vided some of the same ben­e­fits.
