Alcohol abuse can do extensive damage to the liver. It is because when a person drinks alcohol, it mixes with the blood and then it initially goes through the liver first. Moreover, the liver has enzymes which breaks down alcohol into other chemicals, and then broken down into water and carbon dioxide. The final result of the breakdown would be in the urine. If the liver is abused due to alcoholism, many illnesses would then settle in like impotence, hepatitis, alcohol addiction, nerve tissue damage,. stomach disorders, cancer, and hypertension. In order for a person to avoid these diseases and to prevent liver damage, is to never consume too much alcohol.
