Hepatic diseases are of major concern for most European adults. Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is one of the types of fatty liver which occurs when fat is deposited (steatosis) in the liver due to causes other than excessive alcohol use. NAFLD is the most common liver disorder in developed countries: it affects at least 25% of adults in the Unites States and in the Western world. NAFLD is strongly associated with visceral adiposity and the metabolic syndrome.
