Fast food consumption increases the risk of suffering from non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, revealed a team of researchers from the University of Southern California (USA) and published in the journal. Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology,
Specifically, at work, people with obesity or diabetes who consumed 20 percent or more of their daily calories from fast food had significantly higher levels of liver fat than those who ate little or no such food. Didn’t do it at all.
This is the first study to show a negative effect of fast food on liver health.
While previous research has shown links between fast food and obesity and diabetes, this is one of the first studies to show a negative effect of fast food on liver health.
The findings also suggest that relatively small amounts of fast food, high in carbohydrates and fat, can damage the liver. “If people eat one meal a day at a fast food restaurant, they may think they are not doing themselves any harm. However, if that meal equals at least one-fifth of their daily calories, So they are putting their liver at risk.” He insisted.
Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, also known as hepatic steatosis, can lead to cirrhosis, or scarring of the liver, which can lead to cancer or liver failure. Hepatic steatosis affects more than 30 percent of the US population.
