Healthful Plant-Based Diet Is Associated with Lower Odds of Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease

Boarding the plant based diet train may provide an individual with significant protection against non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD).

This study compared the incidence of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) among consumers and non-consumers of plant-based diets. A total of 3,900 US men and women enrolled for this study. During the course of the study, up to 1,686 participants were diagnosed with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. 

Researchers discovered that devout consumers of healthy plant foods tend to have low likelihood of developing non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. The results of this study show that adhering to a diet rich in healthy plant foods may help halt the development of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.
