ABSTRACT
The article presents information on articles related to liver and stomach diseases that have been published in various periodicals. According to the article "Endothelial Dysfunction and Cardiovascular Risk Profile in Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease," which has been published in the periodical "Hepatology," association of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) with metabolic syndrome is well established. Whether NAFLD itself perpetuates metabolic syndrome and its cardiovascular consequences is unclear. According to an article that has been published in the periodical "Gastrointestinal Endoscopy," overuse of endoscopy in countries where gastric cancer is uncommon is not cost effective.
