Regular coffee consumption has also been linked to other benefits. It is known to enhance athletic endurance and performance. A team of experts even linked its regular consumption to reduced risk of liver cancer. Experts at the University of Southampton and the University of Edinburgh examined data from 26 previous studies to conclude that people who drank one cup of coffee daily had a 20 per cent lower risk of developing the most common type of liver cancer, hepatocellular carcinoma.
"Coffee consumption might be inversely associated with CVD (cardiovascular disease) risk. Further research is warranted to confirm our findings and establish the biological basis of coffee's potential preventive effects on coronary artery disease," noted experts at the Kangbuk Samsung Hopsital in South Korea who examined the link between regular coffee consumption and coronary artery calcium - a marker of cardiovascular ailments like stroke, heart attack.
