Coffee and Alcohol

Good news for those drinking way, way, way too much beer to stave off cancer!

CNN reports that coffee limits liver damage[*1] from too much alcohol.

“Coffee is a complex substance with many potentially biologicallyactive ingredients,” the study said. “The fact that coffee is alsofrequently taken with added cream, milk, sugar or other substances addsmore possibilities for health effects.”

Other studies withsimilar findings have led to speculation that caffeine could play arole. However, the protective effect was not found among tea drinkers,though the authors said they were not nearly as numerous in the study as coffee users.
