Why is too much fatty food and alcohol dangerous?

Dr. Mehmet Oz, MD
Cardiology (Cardiovascular Disease)

With 300,000 Americans dying from obesity-related complications every year, overindulgence has become a seriously dangerous habit.

How you can veverse the damage:

Eating too many fatty foods and drinking too much alcohol wreaks havoc on your liver, a vital organ responsible for clearing toxins from your body. When you consistently eat and drink too much, your liver becomes fatty and scarred, making it less able to do its job. Luckily, the liver is the most forgiving organ in the body. Six months after you stop drinking, your liver will return to normal.
