The liver metabolizes alcohol and other bad molecules

The liver metabolizes alcohol and other bad molecules

  • Alcohol cannot be directly excreted thus needing to be transformed in order to be eliminated;
  • The processing of alcohol involves the production of acetaldehyde which is a foreign, toxic molecule so it is quickly transformed into a non-toxic molecule;
  • The consumption of alcohol faster on a regular basis than what the liver can process may cause it to become inflamed which can lead to cirrhosis and permanently scar the liver.
