Alcoholic drinks when taken three times per day can cause liver cancer, claimed a research by the London, UK-based World Cancer Research Fund International.
Amanda McLean, the Director of World Cancer Research Fund UK stated that
“Around three or more drinks per day can be enough to cause liver cancer. Until now we were uncertain about the amount of alcohol likely to lead to liver cancer. But the research reviewed in this report is strong enough, for the first time, to be more specific about this.”
The discovery on “diet, nutrition, physical activity and liver cancer” was published in the Continuous Update Project (CUP) in 2015. The study was taken from an investigation of 34 studies that involved 8.2 million people where 24, 500 of them had liver cancer. Approximately each year according to the American Cancer Society, there are about 35, 660 cases who were detected with liver cancer and 24, 550 of them die from it.
From the same research, a confirmation surfaced which strongly prove that drinking coffee can actually lower the risk of getting liver cancer. A discovery was also published by the World Cancer Research Fund in 2013 stating that coffee could also lower the risk of womb cancer.
It also shows that coffee and coffee extracts lower the production of genes that is associated in the inflammation where the effects is most prominent in the liver. In a small intervention studies, an evidence appear to show that coffee intake lowers the risk of DNA damage in blood cells and also stops ex vivo-induced DNA from harming healthy volunteers.
The study also shows that the risk of liver cancer may be lowered to about 14% on people who drink a cup of coffee every day.
The CUP tells that “The evidence for coffee was generally consistent, and the dose-response meta-analysis showed a significantly decreased risk of liver cancer per one cup per day.”
Another research by CUP came up with a result that being obese can be linked to developing liver cancer.
The CUP continues to investigate study on cancer prevention and explains how weight, diet and physical activity could actually lower the risk of getting the disease.
