Prospective study of perceived dietary salt intake and the risk of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease

Opting for salty foods may accelerate the onset of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD).

This study investigated the salty food-non alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) connection hypothesis. Dietary habits and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease diagnosis status were ascertained through food frequency questionnaires and hospital records respectively. 

Researchers observed that greater intake of high-salt foods boosted a person's odds of receiving a diagnosis of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. The researchers concluded that preference for salty foods may make an individual more prone to suffer from non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.
