Save your Liver

We have mechanical ventilators to breathe for you if your lungs fail, dialysis machines if your kidneys fail, and the heart is mostly just a pump, so we have an artificial heart. But if your liver fails, there’s no machine to replace all its different functions, and the best you can hope for is a transplant.

— Anna Lok, Director of clinical hepatology at the University of Michigan, in the New York Times
