Have a Coke and a Liver Transplant

Did you know that Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD, which ultimately results in Nonalcoholic Steatohepatitis, or NASH) is the most rapidly increasing indication for liver transplants in young adults in the United States?

A comprehensive review of liver transplants performed between 2002 and 2012 revealed this astonishing fact. While NASH accounts for only 4.46% of 2012 liver transplants in people aged 18-40, that number is up from a minuscule 0.53% in 2002.
