"This study aimed to explore the association between nut and seed intake with NAFLD and metabolic biomarkers in a US representative sample."

Key Findings

Key Findings: "Conclusions: Daily consumption for nuts and seeds was associated with a lower prevalence of NAFLD in non-Mediterranean, US adults, although the benefits seem to be greater in females across all categories of nut and seed consumption groups compared with nonconsumers. Both males and females presented with lower prevalence of NAFLD with intakes of 15-30 g/d."
