True enough, but there may have been a high incidence of fatty livers, given that alcoholism was such a problem in the slums. Annie Chapman had had alcohol issues for years before she arrived in Whitechapel, and her husband left her because of her drunkenness. Ironically, he was also an alcoholic who died of cirrhosis not long after their separation.
