More people are becoming interested in detox diets and organ health. As a health educator, one of your roles is differentiating evidence versus popular media and marketing. In this discussion, we will explore evidence that supports the role of nutrition in liver health to add to your ability to differentiate nutrition science from media.
Start by reading the article titled, Impact of nutritional changes on nonalcoholic fatty liver disease.
Focus on the general concepts, as opposed to understanding every word. After completing the reading, answer the following question for your initial post: “What evidence-based general nutrition recommendations would you share with patients interested in liver health?”
Use the assigned article, with appropriate APA citations, to support your position with at least 5-6 sentences to support your case.
In your reply post, share what factors you find most surprising, as well as any experiences and questions you have about the relation of evidence-based nutrition to liver health. You may use the assigned article, or other credible references of your own selection to support your follow-up post(s).
