    He’s ignoring insulin resistance and its role in this. Everybody ignores Round Up in the food supply.
    Dr Jason Fung covers the insulin resistance in this but also ignores Round Up.

    Thanks Dr Nicolai Worm, a fan of Low Carb Down Under, and have researched NAFLD at length, since tracking the Chronic Inflammation problem. In fact all modern diseases are "Metabolic Disease", Type 2/3, Obesity, Cancers and CVD … easy to remove carbs when understand these facts. Fan of Seyfried, Fettke (NoFurctose.com), Noakes et al … "Great refs, will use …"
    http://www.70GoingOn100.com the Centenarian Diet, or maybe 128, the Hayflick limit, or if a Ray Kurzweil fan then this is a Moot Point โ€ฆ
    ps lots of good science on NAFLD, – my take on Sugar – The White Death – https://www.70goingon100.com/contributors/ds-mcgerk-12-sugar-the-white-death-carb-overload.html

    ps, if the liver dies – you die, very simple and sugar is worse that Alcohol … since glucose is Metabolic Fuel for Cancer (Warburg, Seyfried) …

    My friend’s grand father was suffering from liver disease from last 3 years. He moved to ayurveda and took medicine from planet ayurveda. Now he is feeling good.

  8. M A McK on August 2, 2021 at 9:34 pm

    Thank you, Dr. Worm for sharing this with English speakers. Lots of good info, squares with my internist and studies I’ve read. Best NAFLD video detailed description on YouTube.

  9. Jenny Weyman on August 2, 2021 at 9:36 pm

    Great talk thankyou. Reversed my fatty liver with low carb. Elevated GGT for years then CT scan looking for diverticular disease. Found fatty liver and pancreas. Was told it was nothing to worry about! Low carb, healthy fat, mostly animal fat but always olive oil for salads daily and some cooking. Had fibroscan to show liver now happy. So important to treat NAFLD as serious.

  10. Kathy A on August 2, 2021 at 9:36 pm

    I exercise like crazy, still diabetic. The wine in food pyramid is funny since whole talk is about liver fat.

    Vegan low carb forever.

  13. Annie Mekhdjian on August 2, 2021 at 9:40 pm

    Great information thank you Dr for sharing the knowledge !

  14. Yissel Rosario Zacarias on August 2, 2021 at 9:41 pm

    I wonder if there is a link between fatty liver and arthritis…

  15. Sende R on August 2, 2021 at 9:41 pm

    Interesting presentation, but I wonder why he doesn’t just recommend people to go full carnivor. Why all these veggies and fruits and carbs on his Mediterranean low carb diet? What is the use of all that crap? It is not more nutrient dense than a carnivore diet and it can only do harm, because all these plants contain numerous toxins that give people all kinds of different bad reactions. Although I can imagine that his diet also solves the fatty liver problem, but it is definitely not the only way. Probably he doesn’t like the carnivor diet, because it is impossible to earn money from carnivor, because you can’t sell people complicated expensive formulas.

  16. cango on August 2, 2021 at 9:42 pm

    fructose is a toxine for the liver, so all fruits are poison (unless avocado). This should be taught in schools.

  17. Peter Cyr on August 2, 2021 at 9:51 pm

    After the guy talks about fructose harming the liver, his food pyramid has sweet fruit at the base. Go figure.

    I’m here because I’ve had chronic liver discomfort for the last 2 years I’m 40 years old now 6-foot away about 190 I was very into bodybuilding and I was up around 225 lb eating extreme amounts of carbohydrates high-fat high-protein I really didn’t care what I ate because hey I worked out and I was in relatively good shape but I believe this was taking a extreme toll on my liver not to mention I was taking a bunch of bodybuilding supplements. I’ve since when gluten free cuz my blood work showed I had a sensitivity to that the pain in my right upper quadrant has gone down but it is still there it’s like a dull toothache all the time I still eat tons of potatoes and tons of rice so I think I’m going to cut those out and stick with more vegetables. I’m going for more work soon to check my blood levels again because this has been an issue like I said for two years and it has consumed my mind

  19. Student Account on August 2, 2021 at 9:52 pm

    This is pseudoscience.

  20. the true on August 2, 2021 at 9:53 pm

    If there is a slight redness in the eyes, there is pain in the veins and if vitamin E is stopped, can it be cured on its own? Would it be a serious matter? Answer the question sir.

  21. karen peaden on August 2, 2021 at 9:54 pm

    Thank you so much…..I feel hope

    His graph charts could be better. Iโ€™ve seen better & these are quite hard to look at & understand if showing these to a normal layman. Iโ€™m trying to convince my father abt keto/LCHF and these wonโ€™t cut it.

    Thank you so much for the helpful video

  26. Perica Benic on August 2, 2021 at 10:06 pm

    Love this, thanks dr. Nicolal Worm.

  27. helicart on August 2, 2021 at 10:07 pm

    I am still in the high carb PBWF camp (due to epidemiological and longitudinal studies such as AHS-2, the inflammatory effects of animal produce, and gut and microbiome considerations), but respect that low carb diets might be better for some who are insulin resistant and NAFLD. A quality presentation by Dr. Worm. Thanks.

  28. Michael Pollard on August 2, 2021 at 10:09 pm

    As of now there are 42 likes against 2 dislikes.
    In the face of the science (not opinion nor prejudice) I just wish the people who disagree would present the science which refutes the conclusions.

  29. Gratitude on August 2, 2021 at 10:09 pm
