Liver Disease: Not Just An Alcohol Problem | Jack O'Meara
A healthy liver is a vital part of our physical wellbeing. It’s truly a powerhouse organ - and not enough people are talking about it. Jack O’Meara is CEO of Ochre Bio - a company revolutionizing the treatment of liver disease - and he says we need to show the liver some love.
In this episode we’ll discover the real impact of alcohol on our liver. Is one glass of wine a night really so bad? We also learn about the role the liver plays in our metabolism, how medicines impact it and we bust some myths around supplements.
