The liver is an important organ of our body that filters blood and cleans it from all harmful substances. Very often we eat, take drugs, alcohol, smoke and do not think that all of this destroys our liver. The main enemy of the liver – fat.
The liver produces bile, which helps digest and break down fats. If the food comes a lot of the liver difficult to cope with it. Especially hard it is necessary if the person eats at night. Fats are not burned and stored, including in the liver and about it. Over time, the fat becomes more and more Islands, they are partly replaces the normal liver cells (hepatocytes). This increases the risk of atherosclerosis, diabetes, cirrhosis of the liver. Fatty liver disease — this diagnosis hear almost every second person after 40 years, who came for a routine ultrasound.
Pleasant, of course, a little, but not upset. The liver is able to properly perform their functions, even if the "form" remains only 20% of her cells. The liver is able to regenerate itself and is ready to forgive you for decades of inattention to her. Just now have to reconsider their way of life and to be her friend.
The greatest harm the liver cause fat, pork, lamb, duck, goose and other fatty meats. In the black list and broth. But even if you are a vegetarian, you also have a chance to kill the liver.
Particularly at risk peccaverunt. Oily fish is the one which includes no less than 8% body fat.
This group includes herring, mackerel, sturgeon, halibut, eel, etc fish caloric content may twice to beat pork. Given the quality of the products and contamination of the seas and oceans, to consume the liver of fish need a cautiously — this body accumulates toxins.The liver of freshwater fish are usually infected with liver Fluke (opistorchis), the Echinococcus, clonorchiasis and the other kinds of worms that live in the liver
. You can catch them by eating poorly processed fish. In addition, seafood can contain mercury, which destroys the liver. It is better to abandon them, at least from those types of fish (mostly sea: tuna, swordfish) whose high mercury content. Lactovegetarians kill the liver with butter, chocolate, cocoa, fresh pastries, fatty pastries and cakes.

Sharp and searing meals the liver is considers toxins and trying to neutralize them. Finding them, the liver secretes a double dose of bile, in order to quickly break down these harmful substances. And the resulting excess bitter liquid quite often stagnates in the ducts of the liver where the stones are formed. Just six months, a tiny grain of sand can turn into a stone with a diameter in centimeter. Moderate amount of herbal products with choleretic action (garlic, radish and turnips, arugula, mustard) are beneficial to a healthy liver. Excellent hepatoprotector — spice turmeric.

Many vegetarians use incompatible with other products, giving it special significance. For example, it is impossible to use in the salad cucumbers and tomatoes. Because cucumber is alkaline foods, and tomato – sour. When mixing occurs the formation of salts. If you want to keep health, do not eat at the same time protein foods (meat, eggs, fish, cottage cheese, cheese), which requires for its digestion acid enzymes and food containing carbohydrates (bread, cereals, potatoes, sugar, sweets), which require alkaline enzymes.

Hypothermia, a sedentary lifestyle is also harmful to the liver. They say that everything starts with hemorrhoids, it is the first sign of liver problems.

And if you lose a sense of proportion, there comes a time when the forces of the liver are exhausted. And the alcohol begins to "take over". The result is cirrhosis and other liver diseases. On the background of alcohol dependence also occurs gastritis, pancreatitis, brain damage and heart. Men's liver can withstand a lot, at that time, as the hormonal background of women has a to diseases of the liver. Estrogen, the main female hormones, slow down the blood circulation and liver function. And for women taking oral contraceptives with estrogen, the load is even higher. The use of prescription drugs - the surest way to quickly kill the liver
. Doctors right and left discharged chemicals that are foreign to the body, without considering the individual characteristics of the patient. Passing through the main filter, the liver, they clog tiny blood vessels. And even then the problem arises — as they are out of there.
The results of the U.S. national research expensive and dangerous to use antibiotics constantly assigned to 44% of children and 51% adults for the treatment of diseases caused absolutely insensitive to antibiotics by viruses — colds viral diseases in healthy children and adults are held throughout the week with or without antibiotics.
A group of researchers of the medical Department of Harvard University came to the conclusion that about 200 out of every 1,000 hospitalized patients taking medication only to their own detriment. From 3 to 5% of all revenues of the patients in the hospitals due to side effects of drugs. Dead patients 10 times more than mistakes by surgeons. According to American scientists, from medication (not from disease!) die in a year in the United States about 200 thousand people. Mortality in the most severe manifestations of drug intolerance, such as anaphylactic shock, acute common bullous dermatitis, is from 20 to 70%.
According to a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Society (journal of the American medical society), a drug disease is the cause of various serious diseases in 2.2 million US citizens per year.
According to the world health organization, about 30% of chronic diseases are associated with taking various drugs.
Drugs such as paracetamol, papaverine, aminosalicylic acid, androgens, phenylbutazone, ibuprofen, levomycetin, penicillin, oral contraceptives, sulfonamides, tetracyclines, phenobarbital, estrogens, often cause liver damage.

Recent studies have shown that paracetamol can cause fulminant hepatitis, which is characterized by rapid development and fatal. In England paracetamol is the cause of 52% of the cases of this fatal disease, Spain — 42%. Primarily cause the negative effects of drugs, therapeutic concentrations are close to toxic. These include gentamicin, procainamide, and tools that have the ability to accumulate in the body.
"Scientists pharmacogenetics found that 5-9% of Europeans and 1% to 3% Negroid and Mongoloid slow medicine, — says Galina Kholmogorova, senior researcher state research center for preventive medicine. That million people have very serious complications when taking usual doses of the drug: it is a long process, that in the blood occur in concentrations 10 times higher than usual. There are even more people (59% of Europeans and 55% of Negroid, 10-12% Mongoloid) in organisms which medicines are processed correctly. A huge part of the population of the bad "digest" these drugs, such as caffeine, or most of the sulfonamides, which we use for colds. That is why the treatment of the common cold so often results in numerous complications." Grafting onto strong coffee is another powerful tool that displays the liver failure
. Very bad coffee, drunk on an empty stomach. A joint drinking coffee and oily foods, such as cake, even in healthy people leads to a twofold increase in peak rates of sugar in the blood, and the overall picture of blood composition begins to resemble developed diabetes. Caffeine for a few hours blocks of a healthy feedback between the gut and the pancreas produce insulin for the utilization of carbohydrates.
Joint use of carbohydrate and fat in combination with caffeine leads to a complete inability of the body automatically reduced in the blood to normal glucose levels. The occurrence of diabetes is directly dependent on the state of the liver: toxins and toxins are not adequately filtered blood "burn" the surface of every cell of the body, regardless of its location. As a result, the cell loses its insulin receptors, and the ability to take up glucose from the blood. The most common liver disease – hepatitis.
Hepatitis a has a fecal-oral route and can be inserted into the body through food, dirty hands, utensils, etc. hepatitis b and Hepatitis C are transmitted through blood, saliva, sexual secretions and semen.
