Eating fast food regularly has the same impact on the liver as hepatitis.
There are 160,000 fast food restaurants in the United States, serving over 50 million customers daily and the bulk of the food offerings are loaded with calories from fat and added sugar.
“We’re all guilty, and every now and then you have to splurge, but the problem is that so many people are getting into eating fast food, especially kids, as their staple, and I think that’s the point,” said Dr. Drew Ordon of “The Doctors” and author of the book, “Better in 7.”
The fried foods do not just impact your cholesterol and waist line. Ordon describes the changes in the liver enzymes as being surprisingly similar to the damage that is seen by hepatitis, which can ultimately lead to liver failure.
