Coffee Consumption Reduces Mortality Risk From Liver Cirrhosis ~

Coffee could be used to treat liver cirrhosis, after study finds drinking two or more cups daily reduced risk of liver cirrhoses death caused by non-viral hepatitis.

According to a fifteen-year population-based study, from Singapore-based Duke University Graduate Medical and the National University of Singapore, consuming two or more cups of COFFEE each day may keep the risk of death from liver cirrhosis at bay - specifically cirrhosis caused by non-viral hepatitis (non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, a chronic liver disease related to metabolic syndrome and more sedentary affluent lifestyle, likely predominates the non-viral hepatitis-related cirrhosis group). Coffee intake was not associated with viral hepatitis-B related cirrhosis mortality, and examining the effects of Coffee, black tea, green tea, fruit juices and soft drinks on risk of mortality from cirrhosis, the scientists found none increased mortality; however, heavy alcohol use increased the risk of death. This study is the first to demonstrate a difference between the effects of Coffee on non-viral and viral hepatitis related cirrhosis mortality. Prior evidence suggests that Coffee may reduce liver damage in patients with chronic liver disease, and the results of this study, which were published in the journal, Hepatology, indicated that subjects who drank two or more cups per day had a 66% reduction in mortality risk, compared to non-daily Coffee drinkers. The researchers concluded that since Coffee is widely consumed globally, the study has significant clinical and public health implications and provides further impetus to evaluate Coffee as a potential therapeutic agent in patients with chronic liver diseases.

With Kitchen Safety ~

Food-borne illnesses can mean diarrhea, nausea and vomiting, and we are seeing more of these problems lately - most notably with imported produce and fish. To prevent them, keep cold food cold and hot food hot. Use different utensils and separate cutting boards when preparing fruits and vegetables, raw meat, poultry or seafood (and wash all surfaces with soapy hot water after each use). Make sure to use dairy products that have been pasteurized.

Grape Juice Can Put The Squeeze On Memory Loss~Drinking delicious Grape Juice can help fight age-related memory problems according to recent studies. Researchers demonstrated that the resveratrol found in the Concord or Red Wine Grapes improved short term memory and ability to learn lists in adults with early memory decline, and the powerful antioxidants that can also be found in Red Wine Extract are said to be responsible for its benefits.


You may find help with Omega-3 Fatty Acids. Dermatologists often recommend this supplement to help improve skin. These essential fats - which must be obtained from your diet or via supplements because our bodies cannot make them - are a key component of the lubricating layer that keeps skin supple. They also support production of hormones that improve skin texture and help combat the inflammatory damage wrought by free radicals - one of the causes of wrinkles and blotchiness.
