Do you have a more current article? Even in research, we don't like to use articles more than 5 years old because it doesn't represent the current scientific findings. This article is 9 years old.

Is eating too many foods high in saturated fat bad for your liver? Does it cause fatty liver disease?

Fats that are easily stored in the liver are those created by the liver by metabolizing alcohol or fructose. Dietary fat is not processed by the liver and will generally not be stored there.
