Liver/Gallbladder and Coronary Artery Disease

It's fascinating to me to see studies finding a link or relationship between different organs and systems.  Everything is connected in the body and therefore taking a "systems approach" to health makes a lot of sense.  A good example is a very recent study showing that there is a relationship between liver dysfunction (fatty liver in this case) and coronary artery plaque.  I've long been taught that those with sluggish liver or gallbladder function will have increased inflammation and possibly increased arterial inflammation.  This study suggests just that.  The goal, then, would be to optimize liver/gallbladder function, which could potentially be done with diet and certain supplements that contain herbals such as milk thistle, dandelion, and artichoke, among others.  Liver function tests are excellent at ruling out or confirming disease, but consider that they may miss subtle liver (or gallbladder) problems.
