The two poisons that are
killing your liver
If you want to live a long, healthy life, it’s imperative you take care of your liver. Your liver is the single most important organ in your body in regards to longevity. I say that for two reasons. First, the liver is the organ that detoxifies the body. When it’s not functioning well, our cells literally end up bathing in a cesspool of toxicity. It’s not a pretty picture.
The second reason is that the liver is on the front line of defense. So it’s the most vulnerable organ in the body. When you people eat toxic, genetically modified, radiated, processed food laced with chemicals and hormones, the first place it goes is to the liver – all of it. When you eat foods laced with antibiotics or contaminated from bad agriculture processing, it throws off the delicate balance of bacteria in your intestinal tract. When that happens, all of those contaminants go to the liver as well. So here’s the question: Are our livers holding up under the assault? A new study says no.
Dr. Eric Orman of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill presented some very disturbing data last month at the Digestive Disease Week meeting in San Diego. He and his colleagues analyzed data from the United Organ Sharing Network (UNOS). The UNOS is the organization that provides the livers that doctors use for liver transplants. But here’s the problem. The UNOS is having an increasingly harder time finding livers that are acceptable for transplant.

According to Dr. Orman, “We’re actually throwing out livers ... [because] of [the increasing amount of] fatty liver disease.” He and his colleagues discovered that, in the past, the organization had to discard about 25% of all the livers available for transplant because of disease. But all that changed in 2003. Since then, the numbers of discarded livers has almost doubled. It’s getting harder and harder to find a healthy liver. Why?
They estimated that in 2010, 44% of discards were due to increased age. That makes perfect sense. The longer a person eats bad food and gets exposed to antibiotics, the more likely it is that their livers will be diseased. But the average age had only increased six years. The only reasonable explanation is that as a group, Americans are damaging their livers at an ever increasing rate. Let me suggest that you not be in that group. Here’s how you do it.
First, do the obvious and stay away from all the bad foods I just mentioned above. These “foods” may seem benign, but they are not. They are poisonous, especially to your liver.
Second, avoid antibiotics as much as possible. Find a doctor who knows how to treat colds, flu, sinus infections, bronchitis, etc. with natural remedies instead of antibiotics.
And lastly, just for extra insurance, do what I do and recommend to all of my patients. Take one scoop twice a day of my Super Immune QuickStart powder for three months. Then maintain your liver health with one scoop per day for the rest of your life. Super Immune QuickStart is loaded with herbs and nutrients that are especially geared to support and protect the liver.
