Avoid soda-pop

Take a look:

 In a population-based study involving 349 volunteers (male = 52.7%, mean age = 50.7 years, primary non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) = 30.9%), results indicate that higher intake of soft drinks and meat may be associated with an increased risk of NAFLD. Diet information was gathered using a semi-quantitative food-frequency questionnaire. The subjects with NAFLD consumed almost twice the amount of soft drinks, 27% more meat, and somewhat less fish rich in omega-3 fatty acids, than subjects without NAFLD. Additionally, after adjusting for age, gender, BMI and total calories, the intake of soft drinks was associated with a 45% increased risk for NAFLD. Similarly, meat consumption was associated with a 37% increased risk of NAFLD. Thus, the results of this study suggest that higher consumption of soft drinks and meat may increase the risk for NAFLD.
