Secret Disease Infecting 100 Million Americans
It’s the health disaster you’ll NEVER see coming.
Believe it or not, there’s a one-third chance that you have a serious liver condition right now.
It’s probably never been diagnosed… and your doctor has probably never discussed it with you.
I’m talking about non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), and it’s practically become an epidemic in the United States.
NAFLD can put you on the fast track to a liver transplant… or even death.
The good news is that researchers have finally discovered what’s really causing NAFLD – and a simple way to keep the disease from wrecking your health.
Up to 100 million Americans have NAFLD right now, including maybe you or someone you love.
And it’s exactly what it sounds like – fatty deposits build up on your liver, where they’re not supposed to be.
Over time, that can lead to serious scarring and the disease can progress to non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) or cirrhosis.
Either one of those will have your doc fitting you for a liver transplant… or a coffin.
So what can you do to make sure you never develop NAFLD in the first place?
It’s pretty simple – just cut fructose, especially high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS), out of your diet.
According to new research from the University of Rochester, HFCS may be the single biggest culprit behind the liver disease epidemic.
In fact, NAFLD was practically unheard of before HFCS became part of the American diet.
Now this poison is everywhere… in sodas, candies, fast-foods, and even foods that are supposed to be healthy!
Basically, when you consume HFCS, it goes straight to your liver and stimulates the production of fat.
It’s like it flips an “on” switch that triggers liver disease.
The good news is that HFCS is easy enough to avoid (and your liver will thank you for it).
Just read food labels carefully, and set a goal to eliminate HFCS completely from your diet.
