5 Worst Foods for the Liver

4. Trans-fats

Foods containing partially hydrogenated oils or trans-fats are hard to avoid as they are found in almost everything today. Processed foods are the worst as they contain huge amounts of trans-fats, coloring and preservatives. These foods contain LDL or the ‘bad’ fat that can increase your cholesterol levels, even in small amounts. In fact, all the extra LDLs from trans-fats get dumped into our liver, increasing the risk of disease. When your liver has more than 5% fat then you will get fatty liver disease which greatly impairs liver function. Foods to avoid include packaged desserts, salad dressing and fast food. The good news is, you can reverse the damage by giving up the unhealthy diet.
