Do you know about the insidious non-alcohol factor in fatty liver disease? Insidious because it’s hidden in popular soft drinks and many packaged foods, is not considered a toxin, yet is known by researchers to be very harmful to your health.
What is this ingredient? Fructose, especially high fructose corn syrup which is found in soft drinks, sodas and many bottled juices.
Fructose is lipogenic, which means it turns even non-fat foods into body fat. It makes you fat, which can affect all parts of your body. It also promotes inflammation in the body. Inflammation a major factor in almost every modern disease. It also increases the risk of obesity and fatty liver disease. A vicious circle, isn’t it?
Think about that when you next reach for a soft drink or bottled juice. Choose fresh juices instead, or just plain clean water. Your liver will love you for it.
