It was found that when you regularly consume fast foods like fried chicken and onion rings, they leave a negative impact that is bad for your liver, and have many surprising complications and dangers for the people that consume them, ‘cbsnews.com’ reported. “The amount of fat and saturated fats creates a condition called fatty liver,” said Dr Drew Ordon of “The Doctors”.

Dr. Ordon further mentioned, “We’re all guilty, and every now and then you have to splurge, but the problem is that so many people are getting into eating fast food, especially kids, as their staple, and I think that’s the point.”

The finding has pointed at the fact that even just a month of consistently eating fatty foods from fast food restaurants, there are significant changes in your liver. Dr. Ordon describes the changes in the liver enzymes as being similar to the damage that is seen by hepatitis, which can ultimately lead to liver failure. This of course sounds like a big danger for fast food lovers.

French fries in particular were found to be the most dangerous food, because of all the added ingredients to the potato.
