Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is the most common liver disorder in developed countries, affecting up to one in four adults. It occurs when fat accumulates within the liver cells in people who do not consume excessive alcohol and is commonly associated with obesity and insulin resistance. Breastfeeding for less than six months before commencing infant formula milk and maternal obesity at the start of pregnancy, as well as obesity in adolescent offspring, influence the risk of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) in adolescents.
