New Delhi: World Liver Day is celebrated across the world on April 19. The Day is focused on making everyone adopt a healthy lifestyle, avoid eating oily foods and spread more awareness about liver diseases.
Prioritising liver health is extremely important and this day is aimed at spreading that message. Liver diseases such as hepatitis, cirrhosis, and liver cancer can be life-threatening.
World Liver Day is an opportunity to educate people about the risk factors for liver diseases, such as alcohol consumption, obesity, viral hepatitis, and certain medications.
Most people don’t know that non-alcoholic fatty liver disease is a common cause of cirrhosis and that it can be prevented with simple lifestyle measures.
On this day, various health organisations and medical professionals drive home this message by setting up awareness campaigns and health screenings.
By exercising and reducing weight, you can get rid of excess liver fat along with overall body fat. Basically, if you have a healthy lifestyle, your liver will be just fine. This includes avoiding high-calorie meals, saturated fat, and refined carbohydrates such as white bread and sugars.
