few months ago, my lecturer asked me to review few scientific papers in order to gather information whether coffee may cause liver cirrhosis or not..from what i've read, coffee may reduce the probability of getting this disease because coffee had a compound that can reduce the progression of having you have any idea of this thing????

Thanks for sharing this information my friend. I love to drink coffee. I drink at least 3 cups in a day, and I was just bothered that drinking too much could have an adverse effect to my health. Good to know that drinking coffee would reduce the probability of getting a liver cirrhosis. have a great day!

thank you for your respond. the fact i was written before is not significantly proven, so you shouldn't be very happy. even too much coffee doesn't affect your liver, it may cause harm to your stomach. this because too much coffee may cause gastritis because caffeine contained in the coffee will burst the acid secretion in your stomach and result in gastritis. so be may save your liver but loss your think about it!!! =

I didn't know that but am really glad to hear it. I drink three or four pots of coffee a day and am glad that there is some benefit to it!
