Prevalence of Fatty Liver in Children and Adolescents
Well, if you’re in support of the concept that the health of our society is going to Hell in a handbasket, you’ll love this study. A staggering 13% of children aged 2-19 had fatty liver. Fatty liver. The pre-liver cirrhosis stuff. As if children did not already have the health card stacked against them from their parents’ poor health choices during pregnancy and as an infant.
Now we will have to add liver failure to the list of conditions that children are going to be getting earlier and earlier–right next to breast cancer, diabetes and heart disease.
