Coffee is something that most of us need to get through the day, and especially at the end of a loooong week, we need a lot of it. 

While we've all heard the downsides of coffee and caffeine, a new study has found one major upside. 

It turns out that drinking coffee every day can actually help to reduce liver cancer, according to research by experts from the University of Southampton and the University of Edinburgh.

The study, which was published in the BM Journal, included more than 2.25 million participants and looked at evidence from 26 studies. 

They found that an extra two cups of coffee a day, compared to people who drink no coffee, resulted in a 35% reduction in the risk of HCC, the most common form of liver cancer. 

Decaffeinated coffee also reduces the risk, but to "a lesser extent". 

Guess we will stick to being hyper caffeinated all day long then - amaze.
