Here’s another great paper on the role of Fructose (Lisa C Hudgins; Why do sweets fatten our livers?, The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, Volume 96, Issue 4, 1 October 2012, Pages 685–686).
Here is another study (Sevastianova K. Effect of short-term carbohydrate overfeeding and long-term weight loss on liver fat in overweight humans.
Am J Clin Nutr. 2012 Oct;96(4):727-34. Epub 2012 Sep 5.).
Carbohydrate overfeeding for 3 wk induced a >10-fold greater relative change in liver fat (27%) than in body weight (2%). The increase in liver fat was proportional to that in DNL. Weight loss restores liver fat to normal.
These data indicate that the human fatty liver avidly accumulates fat during carbohydrate overfeeding and support a role for DNL in the pathogenesis of NAFLD.
