Love Your Liver Month 2021

It's Love Your Liver month: Are you looking after yours? | The Droitwich  Standard

Love Your Liver is our national awareness campaign devoted to liver health awareness and giving people the key steps needed to keep their liver healthy.

You only have one liver, it’s important to know how to look after it.

Your liver is the largest organ inside your body and does hundreds of essential jobs.

  • Fighting infection and disease
  • Destroying poisons and drugs (including alcohol)
  • Cleaning the blood
  • Controlling the amount of cholesterol
  • Processing food once it has been digested

It works hard and can take a lot of abuse, but it is like an elastic band – it can only stretch so far before it breaks. 

The video below explains about the liver in more depth.
