Weighing around three pounds, what is the heaviest internal organ in the human body?
Thursday, November 2, 2017
Answer: The liver is the body’s largest internal organ. The liver is located mainly in the upper right portion of your abdomen, beneath the diaphragm and above your stomach. Shaped like a cone, it is a dark reddish-brown organ that weighs about 3 pounds. The liver’s main job is to filter the blood coming from the digestive tract, before passing it to the rest of the body. The liver detoxifies chemicals and metabolizes drugs. As it does so, the liver secretes bile that ends up back in the intestines. More than 500 vital functions have been identified with the liver.
