The liver is a large organ above the stomach that plays an important role in many bodily functions including metabolism, detoxification, and the production of bile for digestion. When the liver can no longer metabolize fats, produce adequate bile, or eliminate toxins, the whole body suffers.
It is well known that years of excessive alcohol abuse can damage the liver, but abuse of other toxic substances, including processed and refined foods, cooked fats, and chemical additives, can also cause damage if the liver becomes overwhelmed trying to process them.
