Red and Processed Meat Intake in Relation to Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease Risk: Results from a Case-Control Study

Frequent ingestion of red and processed meat may lead to a spike in the risk of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD).

This study looked at the influence of meaty diets on the burden of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). Researchers assessed the meat intake levels of 196 persons diagnosed with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and 806 individuals free from this condition.

Researchers found a high prevalence of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease among regular red and processed meat consumers. Evidence from this study indicate that sticking to a meaty diet may increase an individual's predisposition to non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.
