Foods that can affect liver health include:
1. Deep-fried foods - high in calories and fats, they can lead to heart disease and should be avoided by those with high cholesterol. Reusing cooking oil can create harmful trans fats and carcinogens, which can damage the liver and cause liver disease.
2. Pickled foods - high in salt and low in nutrients. Regular consumption can lead to high blood pressure and increase the burden on the liver's metabolism and detoxification processes.
3. Alcohol - 90% of alcohol is metabolized in the liver, causing liver cell degeneration and leading to conditions such as alcoholic liver disease and cirrhosis.
