If you are a coffee drinker that goes for a hit of caffeine pre-workout, this should make you happy
The risk of the most common form of liver cancer was reported to be reduced by coffee consumption, and the more coffee the better for the consumer.
V. Wendy Setiawan, University of Southern California, presented the findings at the American Association for Cancer Research annual meeting held in San Diego on April 9.
Gist of the study
Setiawan and colleagues followed nearly 180,000 participants from various ethnic backgrounds in a long-term prospective study for up to 18 years.
Deciphering research lingo can be difficult to gag your way through, but this one sounds promising. For instance those who drank four or more cups daily saw their risk of developing HCC drop by 42 percent.
As a coffee drinker it is encouraging that HCC, the most common form of liver cancer, can be added to the medical ailments such as Parkinson’s disease, type 2 diabetes, and stroke, that may be prevented by coffee intake.

Do you imbibe?
If you drink coffee you might be interested in another of my articles just published about how I sweeten my coffee. I don't like coffee without sweetener, but the artificial sweeteners have had such terrible press over the last decade I have been trying to get them out of my diet. So I did a retro.
Speaking of coffee, if you do the specialty coffees you should take a look at this report in the Huffington Post on fast food specialty coffees. The report might help you decide which you should drink if you are worried about weight gain.
