Comments: Our program raises awareness that many things can cause liver damage, and the risk is not limited to alcohol. Other risks to liver health are obesity, viruses and misuse of medications. Thirty million Americans have liver disease. Five million have viral hepatitis. One quarter of our nation is affected by Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease. Acetaminophen (commonly found in Tylenol and other drugs) can be toxic to the liver in excessive quantities. All of this information is presented in more detail in our program.
