Association between edible mushroom intake and the prevalence of newly diagnosed non-alcoholic fatty liver disease: results from the Tianjin Chronic Low-Grade Systemic Inflammation and Health Cohort Study in China

Edible mushroom eaters may have high chances of evading a diagnosis of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD).

This study explored the hypothesis that devout consumption of edible mushrooms is associated with reduced incidence of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). The study included over 24,000 Chinese adults who were surveyed about their diet, lifestyle, and health. 

Researchers observed that participants who ate more edible mushrooms tend to have diminished risk of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. Based on the data from this study, eating mushrooms consistently may be an effective dietary measure for non-alcoholic fatty liver disease prevention.
