I just learned that your liver regrows itself every 2 months. Best news I've heard all week.

Wow. Just wow, OP.
Things you should know podcast?
Actually i believe the liver is the only organ that regrows
It does regrow, but only if you give it time to regrow, aka don't binge drink for two months.
I was a live liver donor. They took half of my liver and it regrew within three months. Only organ in the body that regenerates. Duh.
A healthy liver is perfectly capable of regrowing up to half if need be, though this ability may be compensated by alcohol abuse or cancers. The functioning cells that make up liver tissue are pleuripotent stem cells meaning that they can be reproduced and change to assume the required role.
247 and 236 are dumb fucks. It does regrow itself. Google it.
Umm..... What?!?! Organs don't regrow themselves .....ever.
It's good to know wikipedia posts comments on tfln. Thanks 3:26.
Technically true in cases of healthy livers. Alcohol especially damages the liver so that's how people end up with fatty livers and cirrosis...once you damage it, of course it doesn't grow back.
Shhhhhhh ur to loud im hungovrr
your liver can grow back up to 80% of itself.
my name is _____ and I am an alcoholic
Hey 236...you, sir/ma'am, are a dolt!
Yeah.... Too bad your gonna die before your parents though. Shame
Not true at all.
Before people call each other a dumbass make sure u know what u are talking about it is sad to see people make fools of them selves. 236 cancers effect a lot of stuff so a diesce of the liver it is safe to assume that the cells there would in fact be bathleing that instead of rebuilding jackass
It's sad to see you calling people dumb asses and commenting on how sad it is to see people make fools of themselves when you can't spell battling.
Yeah...sorry but no.
Haha duh, how else would people be able to donate half their liver in liver transplants...?
Hahahahaha all you RETARDS who are saying this isn't true at all obviously are stubborn pricks...just sayin.
What 3:26 said
And 247 and 236 are not dumb fucks, they are misinformed. Like frayedknot said, it won't regrow if your life is a binge fest
Stupidest thing I've heard. If u think that's true how do u explain liver cancer and cirrhosis? Dumbass
I am SO glad :D
And 12:56 thats when you need a liver transplat. And its not half your liver, its more like 1/8 to 1/10 depending on how bad the liver is damaged.
Learn that on greys anatomy?
Ha ha!!! OP when your liver starts to give out, I want to be at your death bed pointing and laughing
