  • Question:Why do some people with NAFLD develop NASH?
  • Answer:

    We don’t know why fat damages the liver in some people.

    Some researchers believe that “free radicals” are an important cause, but this has not been proven and experimental trials of antioxidants have not convincingly shown any benefit. Answering this question is an area of active investigation by many researchers around the world right now.
