As reported in EurekAlert! University of California San Diego School of Medicine and Emory University School of Medicine researchers found that a diet low in free sugars (those added to foods and beverages and occurring naturally in fruit juices) resulted in significant improvement in nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) in adolescent boys.  The study was published in JAMA January 22.
