Reply to “The role of NAFLD in extrahepatic malignancies: the importance of ruling out the effect of obesity”

We appreciate Bo Zheng et al. for their interest in our study and for providing a valuable comment. Our study investigated the little understood relationship between non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and extrahepatic cancers [1], and found that NAFLD was highly associated with the development of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), colorectal cancer in males, and breast cancer in females. This association suggests that NAFLD can serve as a risk factor of extrahepatic malignancies.
