Three Coffees a Day halves mortality risk in HIV and Hepatiti C co-infected patients


Scientists has shown that Coffee has anti-inflammatory and hepato-protective/liver-friendly properties.Scientists have also found more compelling evidence that drinking more than 3 cups of coffee per day has been associated with a 14% reduction in the risk of all-cause mortality



A new study by French scientists has shown how drinking three or more cups of coffee every day halved the risk of death among patients with HIV and hepatitis C virus (HCV). Their research was recently published in the Journal of Hepatology.
In the wider population, three cups of coffee every morning has been shown to cut the risk of liver cancer by 35 percent. In fact, too much is harmful so drinking five cups increased the risk even further, but all that caffeine could lead to other health problems in itself. 
"Even when cured of HCV, patients co-infected with HIV have a higher risk of death with respect to the general population, due to an accelerated aging process that may result from cancer, complications related to diabetes and to liver disease, and from cardiovascular events," explained lead investigator Dominique Salmon-Céron. He added, "I think we need to better monitor coffee consumption, together with other behaviors, such as alcohol use, smoking, physical activity, and to propose interventions to our patients which facilitate healthy behaviors even after HCV clearance,”
