Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease Increases Cancer Risk

Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), which is among one of the most common chronic liver diseases was found to be linked to metabolic syndrome and puts people at risk of cardiovascular disease. Not only the links between NAFLD and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) were identified, but also to cancers outside the liver such as colorectal and breast cancer. The new study was published in the Journal of Hepatology.
