I’ve been a huge fan of coffee since around age ten. This fandom has led me into many coffee shops and through many books on the compounds found in coffee, the history of its cultivation, entire societies built around the commodity of coffee, and just general legend and lore associated with these beans.
I recently found this article that was pretty interesting. It doesn’t sound like a fully investigated theory, but it perked my ears sufficiently.
If this is really the case, I won’t have to worry about liver cancer any time soon. Actually, I’m coffee’d up enough to probably cover me for another few years for that matter. Liver cancer is the 5th most common form of cancer, so have a cup or two of coffee every now and then, just in case.
