Fatty Liver-—Is It the Fat's Fault?

 Attend

Fatty liver disease is a growing epidemic in the developed world, with some estimating that over 40% of the US population have some amount of disease. The general recommendations for those with fatty liver disease include avoiding saturated fats, though research does not support this recommendation. In fact, saturated fats have been shown to be protective against fatty liver disease with some even having a therapeutic effect. Conversely, consumption of large amounts of polyunsaturated fats that have only recently become abundant in western diets plays a key role in disease development.
