Higher magnesium intake, less liver cancer
If you drink alcohol - and perhaps if your lifestyle is otherwise stressful on your liver - a relatively high intake of magnesium reduces your risk of liver cancer.
The study participants had completed questionnaires about their diet and told about their health.
Based on their magnesium intake, the researchers divided the study participants into 4 equally sized groups [quartiles]. They then brushed off the effect of other factors as far as possible and determined the risk of liver cancer for each quartile.
In the quartile with the highest intake of magnesium - more than half a gram per day - the risk of liver cancer was 35 percent lower than in the quartile with the lowest magnesium consumption - less than 290 milligrams of magnesium per day.

Apparently magnesium is a protective factor in a lifestyle that puts a strain on the liver. It wouldn't surprise us, the industrious compilers of this free web magazine, if a study ever appears in which users of oral anabolics or SARMS develop liver problems less often if they consume a lot of magnesium.
Just a random example.
