50 Ways to Love Your Liver
Your liver, the largest organ in your body, weighs about three pounds and is roughly the size of a football. It lies in the upper right side of your abdomen, situated mostly under the lower ribs.

  1. Avoid taking unnecessary medications (Too many chemicals can harm me).

  2. Don't mix medicines without the advice of a doctor. (You could create something poisonous that could damage me badly)

  3. Street drugs cause serious damage and scar me permanently.

  4. Don't drown me in beer, liquor or wine. (If you drink alcohol, have two or fewer drinks per day) .

  5. Never mix alcohol with other drugs & medications.

  6. Be careful when using aerosol cleaners. I have to detoxify what you breathe in, so when you go on a cleaning binge, make sure the room is well ventilated, or wear a mask.

  7. Bug sprays, paint sprays and all those other chemical sprays you use can harm me too. Be careful what you breathe.

  8. Watch what gets on your skin! (Those insecticides you put on trees and shrubs to kill bugs can get to me right through your skin and destroy some cells.) Remember, they're serious chemicals.

  9. Use caution and common sense regarding intimate contact (Hepatitis viruses live in body fluids, including blood and seminal fluid).

  10. The hepatitis B virus also lives in saliva and, unlike the AIDS virus, can be transmitted through this fluid with relative ease.

  11. If you were stuck with a needle used by a person with AIDS, you'd have a one in 2,000 chance of picking up the AIDS virus. But if that person had hepatitis B, your chances of picking up the virus increase to one in four!

  12. Hepatitis C, spread primarily through direct blood contact, can be transmited through contaminated needles used in tattooing, body piercing, or IV drug injection.

  13. Untreated, chronic hepatitis B and C can cause cirrhosis and liver cancer and is the most frequent reason for liver transplants.

  14. Many infected people do not have symptoms until liver damage occurs, sometimes many years later.

  15. Teach your children what a syringe looks like and tell them to leave it alone.

  16. Never, ever, touch a discarded syringe or needle.

  17. Colon cleansing works great and you should cleanse your colon with Enuvia or Bowtrol your liver will thank you for it.
