Many people are harming their liver without even knowing it. The liver is an important organ in the body and it is important we take good care of our liver.

Below are 4 foods that damage your liver.


Consuming too much sugar isn’t good for the liver as it causes a fatty buildup that can lead to liver disease. Researchers have also proved that sugar can be as damaging to the liver as alcohol.


Whenever you hang out with friends to take alcohol, you should never forget that drinking too much alcohol can damage the liver. When your liver tries to break down the alcohol you consume, the resulting chemical reaction can damage its cells. This damage can lead to inflammation and scarring as the liver tries to repair itself.


Drinking a lot of soft drinks isn’t good for your liver as research has shown people who consume a lot of soft drinks are more likely to have non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD).


Foods such as margarine and cookies contain unhealthy fats which isn’t good for your liver. For the sake of your liver, it’s important you reduce your saturated fat intake to less than 7 percent of your total calories and eliminate your trans fat intake.
