October is Liver Awareness Month. The liver is the largest organ inside of the body. It has many important functions including digestion, storing energy, and removing poisons. Unfortunately, it may not show symptoms when it is in trouble. However, there are some warning signs, such as jaundice. There are many kinds of liver diseases and conditions. Some are due to viruses, some are inherited, and others are caused by drug and/or alcohol misuse.
