In case you were wondering, no harm will come to your second-largest organ if you’ve got a bean addiction.

Researchers spent 11 years tracking the blood levels of four enzymes that indicate liver function in nearly 28,000 Joe-drinking adults, and the results are good.

The study, published in Hepatology, revealed that those who drank 3 cups of coffee a day had lower levels of abnormal liver enzyme than those who don’t sip coffee on the regular, by about 25%.

To boot, yet another study published by the World Cancer Research Fund found that it may even decrease your risk of liver cancer by 14%.

The jury is still out on decaf—though it has shown to protect against cancer in other studies.
