This is something I was reading about last month and indeed it is shocking to know that fatty liver disease is likely to overtake alcoholic liver disease as the biggest cause for liver failure in the next decade. Up till now we have been debating whether or not alcoholics should get liver transplants before more deserving patients.. soon we may be debating the same for obesity linked liver failure patients.

Finger's crossed scientists come up with a cure soon!

You don't have to be extremely overweight to have fatty liver disease so many unsuspecting people are walking around not realizing they are at risk. There is some fairly new research online about Choline treating fatty liver. I've started taking it myself.
