Drinking less than a cup a day cut risk of cirrhosis by 30 percent, and four or more cups a day cut risk by a remarkable 80 percent, compared with those who drank no coffee.

A 2013 study that reviewed data from 16 different medical studies found that daily coffee consumption can reduce the risk of the most common form of liver cancer by 40 percent. Moreover, it found that drinking three cups or more per day could cut the risk by more than 50 percent.
