Soft drink consumption linked with fatty liver in the absence of traditional risk factors.

​Consistent consumption of soft drinks may raise the odds of developing non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.

This study examined regular intake of soft drinks in relation to the development of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). Researchers followed and evaluated 310 NAFLD patients who did not have the classic risk factors of the disease with regards to their frequency of consumption of soft drinks, such as Coca Cola, Diet Coke, and flavored fruit juices for a period of 36 months.

The team of investigators discovered that increase in the frequency of consumption of soft drinks was associated with higher risk of developing non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. The authors concluded that habitual intake of soft drinks may promote the development of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease in both men and women.
