The liver is a wonderful organ, albeit not Woody Allen’s first and second favorite organs. It processes blood in the digestive tract, metabolizes nutrients, produces cholesterol and bile, and regulates the clotting of blood.
Your liver is your friend and arguably your best friend.
But your BFF can help you only if you listen to it. Your tongue is louder (it does have ready access to the vocal cords), but that does not make the tongue’s instructions prudent. Although some people confuse volume for intelligence, they are not interchangeable. As Heart and Brain comics illustrates, your quiet liver knows its work.
