But that's where coffee comes in:
Coffee prevents Cirrhosis
Coffee may protect against alcoholic liver disease, according to a study that adds to the growing body of literature on the diverse health effects of the popular and addictive brew.
For every cup of java, up to four a day, the study charted about a 20% decline in risk of alcoholic cirrhosis. People drinking four cups a day had about an 80% lower risk. Although the study suggests coffee may be protective, it doesn't prove drinking it actually caused the benefit.
Now all I need is something to counteract the negative effects of tobacco pipe smoking, and i'll be set to live forever in perpetual happiness.
Joel whines (with literary ineptitude):
What you left out is the potential hazards that coffee imposes upon your system. To counteract the negative affects of caffeine on the nervous system, is yet to be defined.Yes, Coffee/Caffeine can have some side-effects such as higher blood pressure due to constricting blood vessels. Gee willikers, I wonder if there is such an agent out there that would lower blood pressure and enlarge blood vessels? Oh yeah, it's Alcohol! The circle of life is complete!
Eating pizza 'cuts cancer risk'
Researchers claim eating pizza regularly reduced the risk of developing oesophageal cancer by 59%.
The risk of developing colon cancer also fell by 26% and mouth cancer by 34%, they claimed.
The secret could be lycopene, an antioxidant chemical in tomatoes, which is thought to offer some protection against cancer, and which gives the fruit its traditional red colour.
