Relationship between Diet and Non-alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease: A Review Article.

​High dietary ingestion of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains may help guard against the development of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.

This study evaluated how diets affect the risk of developing non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). Researchers analyzed data extracted from 33 studies that examined the link between diets and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease risk.

Researchers discovered that western dietary pattern characterized by the consumption of red meat, fatty foods, and sweets facilitated the onset of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. In contrast, a decline in non-alcoholic fatty liver disease was associated with increased consumption of diets high in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains in this study. Data from this study suggest that adequate intake of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains may be beneficial in the prevention of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.
