Drinking Coffee May Help Reducing the Risk of Developing Gallstones

The researchers also highlighted several mechanisms by which coffee consumption might help to prevent gallstones from forming

In a treat to coffee lovers, researchers have found that drinking coffee may help in reducing the risk of developing gallstones.

“We have tested the hypothesis that high coffee intake causally protects against symptomatic gallstone disease,” said researchers from the University of Copenhagen in Denmark.

According to the research published in the Journal of Internal Medicine, among 104,493 individuals, those who drank more than six cups of coffee per day had a 23 per cent lower risk of developing symptomatic gallstones compared with individuals who did not drink coffee.
