A hope-lifting new study has found that consuming at least three cups of coffee a day can double the survival chances of those living with HIV.

The study, conducted by the French National Institute of Health and National Agency for AIDS and Hepatitis Research, found that coffee played crucial role in protecting the liver from diseases such as hepatitis C, which mostly affects HIV patients.

“HIV patients who drink three cups of coffee every day have up to 50 per cent better survival rates compared to those who consume less or none,” the researchers note.
