Plant-Based Sources of Vitamin A Linked to Lower Risk of Liver Disease

A new study compared the diets of over 6,000 people and found that those who ate the most vitamin A in the form of carotenoids from plant foods like legumes, grains, fruits, and vegetables were least likely to have non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. Vitamin A from animal sources did not appear to contribute to reduced risk.
