Soy Food Intake Is Inversely Associated with Newly Diagnosed Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease in the TCLSIH Cohort Study

Frequent consumption of soy foods may help hinder the development of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.

The objective of this study was to determine the role of regular intake of soy foods in the prevention of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). Researchers took a detailed look at the medical records of 24,622 Chinese men and women who responded to questionnaires about their eating and alcohol drinking habits.

Researchers found out that the likelihood of acquiring non-alcoholic fatty liver disease decreased with increased ingestion of soy foods. The data from this study show that following a high soy diet may confer men and women with significant protection against non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.
