Alcohol has been known for a long to cause a spectrum of liver diseases . Nevertheless, in the absence of alcoholism, a similar illness is reported. It is known as nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). NAFLD is increasing at a tremendous rate . Scientists are showing that plastic leaks out can cause such disease . It is seen that Bisphenol A and Bisphenol F (the two plastic leak outs) cause lysosomal dysfunction [4-6]. Lysosomal dysfunction can cause lipid accumulation in the cell as it regulates cellular lipid catabolism . Therefore, Bisphenol A and Bisphenol F induced lysosomal dysfunction can result in lipid accumulation in the liver. So, Bisphenol A and Bisphenol F exposure can get lipid accumulation in the liver, which can cause NFALD. This can happen in the absence of alcoholism [4,5].
