    Video caption: A University of Southampton study suggests coffee could lower the risk of liver cancer

    Increasing coffee consumption may help to stave off liver cancer, a new study from Southampton University researchers suggests.

    They found that people who drink more coffee are less likely to develop hepatocellular cancer (HCC), the most common form of primary liver cancer.

    Cup of coffee

    Even decaffeinated coffee can have a protective effect, they found. Experts examined data from 26 studies involving more than 2.25 million participants.

    Compared with people who drank no coffee, those who drank one cup had a 20% lower risk of developing HCC, according to the study, published in the journal BMJ Open. Those who consumed two cups had a 35% reduced risk and for those who drank five cups, the risk was halved.

  12. RNLI demonstrate floating survival technique

    The RNLI has released its annual casualty figures for coastal areas and issued advice on what to do should you fall in water.

    Sudden immersion in cold water puts people at severe risk of suffering cold water shock, which triggers the instinctive but life-threatening reaction to gasp uncontrollably and swim hard, which can quickly lead to drowning.

    Instead, the charity recommends laying back in the water and floating for more than a minute.
