This seems like a combination made in heaven -- coffee and booze. According to nypost.com, Drinking more coffee may reverse liver damage from booze. Excerpt:
Cirrhosis involves a hardening and destruction of liver tissue and kills more than 1 million people every year worldwide. It can be caused by hepatitis infections, excessive alcohol consumption, immune disorders and fatty liver disease, which is tied to obesity and diabetes.
Kennedy and colleagues did a pooled analysis of average coffee consumption across earlier studies to see how much adding two additional cups each day might influence the odds of liver disease.
Combined, the studies included 1,990 patients with cirrhosis.
In eight of the nine studies analyzed, increasing coffee consumption by two cups a day was associated with a significant reduction in the risk of cirrhosis.
In all but one study, the risk of cirrhosis continued to decline as daily cups of coffee climbed.
Compared to no coffee consumption, researchers estimated one cup a day was tied to a 22 percent lower risk of cirrhosis. With two cups, the risk dropped by 43 percent, while it declined 57 percent for three cups and 65 percent with four cups.
A mixture of alcohol and coffee might seem like the perfect drink, and there are plenty of recipes available. They all seem a little bit too heavy on cream, sugar, or both, but your tastes may vary.
