We all are aware of the health benefit alcohol carries when you consume the same at a moderate or small amount. but wait this latest study might shock you as the same doesn’t hold true for people with a fatty liver disease.

When more than 5% of liver weight is comprised of fat, you can be categorised as having a fatty liver disease. Most people have a little fat in the liver but anything above the normal threshold can cause serious health issues. If the liver damage isn’t from excessive alcohol consumption, it is categorised as non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) which is mostly the outcome of unhealthy eating habits and obesity.

This study was carried out on 5,115 adults ranging between the age of 18 to 30, who were studied for around 25 years, regarding their drinking habits plus to check for evidence of diseases like fatty liver disease, heart disease or risk factors for cardiac problems. The leading cause of death among non-alcoholic fatty liver patients is heart disease. So it is highly important to study the lifestyle, diet and other daily routines of youngsters to prevent complications.

As the study wasn’t a controlled one, the reports might carry glitch as many subjects could have lied about their eating and drinking habits. Also, there is a good chance that the study didn’t find any association between good heart health among people with NAFLD because other factors like exercise, lifestyle and eating habits which can greatly influence the health.



It is true that moderate alcohol use can significantly decrease the mortality rate amidst people with a good liver but whether the same holds true for people with NAFLD isn’t clear as of yet. Alcohol in controlled amount holds a lot of benefits but the same when used uncontrollably can cause well-known liver risks such as cirrhosis and even liver damage. Moderate drinking is defined as one to two drinks for men per day and one for women in a day depending on the type of drink being consumed. Anything more than this can cause more damage than benefit to your health.
