You cannot live without your liver

The second largest organ in your body and is located right under your rib cage on your right side. It weighs about three pounds and is shaped like a football that’s flat on one side.

Your liver cleans your blood of toxins, gives you energy and produces bile for digestion. Your liver processes what you eat and drink into nutrients your body uses and filters out harmful substances from your blood.
