Alan Franciscus, Director of the Hepatitis C Support Project, modeled a game after the popular game show, Jeopardy. He named this liver trivia game, Hepardy. Here are more liver facts in honor of Liver Awareness Month:
  • The liver can re-grow damaged cells. This is known as regeneration. The liver can regenerate an entire liver from only one-fourth of a functioning liver.
  • You can live without your gall bladder. You cannot live without your liver.
  • A veritable highway system of arteries, veins and capillaries run through the liver. A quart and a half of blood flows through the liver every minute.
