UntitledWith Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease on the Rise and No NHS-Approved Treatment, Nutrient and Botanical Therapies Are Poised as the Next-Best Solutions

However, the timing of gluten introduction into an infant’s diet does not appear to influence a child’s subsequent risk of developing CD investigators report in an article published online January 19 in Pediatrics.[1] The new finding, from a multinational prospective birth cohort study, challenges some current ideas on how best to prevent the onset of the autoimmune disorder.
