Insoluble dietary fibre intake is associated with lower prevalence of newly-diagnosed non-alcoholic fatty liver disease in Chinese men: a large population-based cross-sectional study

Adequate intake of foods rich in insoluble fiber may help hinder the development of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) in men.

This study investigated the correlation between dietary ingestion of insoluble fiber and a man's propensity to develop non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). Researchers tracked the eating habits of 4,426 patients with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and 19,103 men without the disease. 

Researchers found a low incidence of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease among men who ate the most amount of insoluble fiber-containing foods. This study concluded that increased intake of foods loaded with insoluble fiber may improve a man's odds of keeping non-alcoholic fatty liver disease at bay.
