Consuming too much alcohol can make your liver
to shut down. The liver constantly flush away toxic substances that
alcohol produces but when the intake of alcohol becomes too much, the
liver becomes overloaded and stressed making a lot of toxic substance to
build up. Alcohol can cause a buildup of a toxic enzyme called acetaldehyde,
When this enzyme becomes in excess, it may result in alcohol poisoning.
Try to stick to a few drinks, and keep hydrated with water, to prevent
your liver from being flooded with this enzyme.
