If the detox pathways in the liver become overloaded, the risk is that toxins will build up faster than sidewalk snow in a blizzard. And without a biological shovel to clear them away, there's a lot of liver trouble lurking.
Why? Many of these toxins are fat soluble, meaning they wiggle their way into fatty parts of your body, where they may stay for years or for your entire life! And by fatty parts of your body, we don't mean your gut or your butt, but fatty organs like your liver, brain and hormonal glands.
The effect: such niceties as cirrhosis brain dysfunction and hormonal imbalances that can bring about infertility, breast pain, menstrual disturbances, adrenal gland exhaustion and early menopause—not to mention an increased risk of many cancers.
