A team of researchers affiliated with various institutions across Australia has found that if every person in the world drank at least two cups of coffee every day, the world would see hundreds of thousands of lesser deaths from liver cancer.
The group believes that there are benefits to drinking coffee and thus, governments should begin encouraging people to drink more coffee.
There have been multiple studies in the past several years, which have shown that drinking coffee on a regular basis is beneficial to health. One of the major benefits that stand out is the reduced risk of developing liver cancer.
The research suggests that a person’s risk of developing liver cancer can reduce by 38 percent and their risk of dying from the disease by 46 percent if they drink two or three cups of coffee per day.
And when the person raises their consumption of coffee to four or more cups per day, they can reduce the risk by 41 percent and their chances of dying by 71 percent. The researchers wondered during their research as to what would happen if all the world’s non-coffee drinkers began to consume two or four cups of coffee every day.
To filter the data of liver-cancer-related statistics, the researchers extracted and studied data in the Global Burden of Disease 2016 dataset. It was found out that there were 1,240,201 deaths from liver cancer that year.
Researchers also gathered coffee drinking statistics and noted both sets of data into a model that showed a link between coffee drinking and reductions in liver cancer. The model gave the results that in 2026, there would have been 452,861 fewer deaths from liver cancer if everyone in the world had been drinking two cups of coffee a day.
