Ultra-processed food is associated with features of metabolic syndrome and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease

Eating generous amounts of ultra-processed foods regularly may raise an individual's likelihood of acquiring metabolic syndrome and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.

This study focused on the correlation between preference for ultra-processed foods and the probability of suffering from metabolic syndrome and non-alcohol fatty liver disease (NAFLD). Researchers compared the rate of consumption of ultra-processed foods among  patients with metabolic syndrome and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and individuals without these ailments. 

Researchers found out that fondness for ultra-processed foods promoted the onset of metabolic syndrome and accelerated the progression of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. This study recommended that creating more space for ultra-processed foods in our menu may set us on the path to developing metabolic syndrome and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.
