The liver is the central organ of human and animal metabolism. It influences, for example, the blood sugar level, synthesizes various blood proteins, and decomposes toxic metabolic products and other toxicants taken up with the food. The bile which the liver produces accumulates in the gallbladder and is discharged into the intestines when needed. It emulsifies dietary fat. The human liver is a very large organ weighing approx. 1,500 g and lies on the right side of the abdomen, directly under the diaphragm.
