The fruit outside is getting sweeter, but experts still recommend eating more.

Fruit is very good. It contains a lot of vitamins and is good for the body.

However, in recent years, the health of fruit has become a very controversial topic.

We all know sugar is bad, and fructose can be worse than glucose.

And fruit contains a lot of fructose, and eating too much may not be a good thing.

Today’s article, we share two real hammer studies: Eating too much fruit overloads your liver and may cause Alcoholic fatty liver.

What is NAFLD?

Some people who never drink alcohol can also get fatty liver disease, known as nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD).

It is not related to alcohol use, but is increasingly common and is the most common chronic liver disease, affecting about four one percent of the population.

NAFLD can progress to nonalcoholic hepatitis (NASH), an aggressive fatty liver disease characterized by inflammation of the liver.

(Above: Fatty liver (right) appears swollen and discolored compared to normal liver (left). ↑)

Tissue samples showed fatty deposits in nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, and markers of inflammation and advanced scarring (cirrhosis) seen in nonalcoholic steatohepatitis.

It slowly progresses to advanced cirrhosis and even liver failure, similar in severity to heavy drinking.

You may start with: Fatigue, pain or discomfort in the upper right abdomen, etc.

Severe possible symptoms of hepatitis and cirrhosis such as swelling of the abdomen (ascites), enlarged blood vessels below the surface of the skin, enlarged spleen, reddened palms, yellowing of the skin and eyes (jaundice) reaction.

→Main cause of NAFLD

There are many possible causes of NAFLD, such as: overweight or obesity due to high caloric intake, insulin resistance, cells not responding to the hormone insulin; high blood sugar, prediabetes or type 2 diabetes; fat in the blood High in content, especially triglycerides.

These factors may contribute to fat deposition in the liver.

Excess fat, a toxin to liver cells, can cause fatty liver, lead to the buildup of scar tissue in the liver, resulting in liver inflammation and liver disease possibility of hardening.

There are many factors in life that may increase your likelihood of developing fatty liver, including eating habits that most people ignore strong>, of which too much fruit is at the top.

New study: Fruit may damage liver

Many people think that fruit is healthy, and it takes a few servings of fruit every day to be healthy.

In recent years, research has begun to put a big question mark on fruit, because fructose in fruit is considered by many experts to be a kind of alcohol that is not drunk, which may directly increase the risk of fatty liver .

Check it out, this latest real case study, and you may not eat more fruit after reading it.

→4 servings of fruit a day, aggravate fatty liver

This latest randomized clinical trial was published in August of this year.

About the effect of a fruit-rich diet on liver biomarkers, insulin resistance, and blood lipids in patients with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease.


study was designed to investigate the effect of a fruit-rich diet (FRD) on hepatic steatosis, Effects of liver enzymes, insulin resistance and lipid profiles.

80 adults with NAFLD participated in this randomized controlled trial.

Participants were randomly assigned to the FRD group that ate at least 4 servings of fruit per day, or a control group that ate less than 2 fruit per day Group.

By assessing grades of steatosis including alanine aminotransferase (ALT), aspartate aminotransferase (AST), alkaline phosphatase (ALP) and gamma-gluten Serum liver enzyme levels including aminoacyltransferase (GGT), total cholesterol (TC), triglycerides (TG), low – at baseline.

At the end of the study, Density Lipoprotein (LDL), High Density Lipoprotein (HDL), Glucose, and Homeostasis Model Assessment of Insulin Resistance (HOMA-IR) were also measured.

After 6 months of intervention, study found that eating more than 4 servings of fruit a day exacerbated NAFLD in patients steatosis, dyslipidemia, and glycemic control.

So, be careful with the fruit now, because it’s really too sweet and too much fructose.

Next look at another study.

→Chinese study: Oranges linked to higher risk of fatty liver

Orange is a common fruit we usually eat, and many people also like to eat it. The sweeter it is, the more popular it is.

Oranges are rich in fructose, which may be a risk factor for nonalcoholic fatty liver disease.

The study investigated the relationship between orange intake and fatty liver disease in the average adult.

This study was conducted in our domestic and randomly recruited 27,214 adults to participate in the Tianjin Chronic Low-Grade Systemic Inflammation Study.

Results found that the prevalence of fatty liver among participants was 27.18%.

After adjusting for all potential confounders, the results are:

Higher orange intake (≥7 times per week) was positively associated with the prevalence of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease.

Of course, this is a correlation study and cannot prove cause and effect, so let’s look at the research we shared earlier.

Low-carb, ketogenic diet improves fatty liver

We’ve shared many studies before that a low-carb ketogenic diet that controls sugar and staples can reverse fatty liver disease.

In January 2018, the Royal Swedish Institute of Technology (KTH) published a study in cell.

A low-carb diet for two weeks, quickly improves fatty liver, Related reading → 2 weeks to see miraculous results, the fastest way to “reverse fatty liver”, Cell’s latest research.

There is also a study by Foshan People’s Hospital, which found that flexible ketosis can transform your fatty liver.

Another Mediterranean Ketogenic Diet on fatty liver was found to improve insulin resistance and fatty liver, and possibly even cure mild symptoms Degree of fatty liver.

Any low-carb ketogenic diet is a typical low-sugar, low-fruit or no fruit type of diet.

Low-carb diet, strict sugar control, focusing on a diet rich in high-quality protein and healthy fats.

Like many other disease-modifying effects, it is the best dietary therapy to combat fatty liver or prevent it.

This also indirectly shows that fruit is not a necessity, but eating too much will cause many health problems, including fatty liver.

Key Thin Dragon Says

Fruits are getting sweeter and sweeter, and the fruits of the past are not the same as they are now.

If the fruit is not sweet now, no one will buy it, and the sweet fruit will be left slowly.

If you want to eat fruit to supplement vitamin C, it may be counterproductive, because you eat too much sugar, but it will affect vitamin C levels, because their molecules are very similar, and they have a competitive relationship in themselves .

For vitamin C supplementation, eat more vegetables, but fruit will increase your intake of fructose and other sugars.

The harm of fructose, not only fatty liver, but also high uric acid, insulin resistance, makes you Addicted to eating.

Of course, it is not for you to avoid fruit, and it is harmless to eat it occasionally.

But avoid long-term excessive consumption, reduce the amount of fruit, and control it within a certain range, is the greatest protection for your small liver .
