Your liver is located on the right side of the body, below the diaphragm and overlying the gallbladder. It’s the largest and heaviest internal organ in the human body, responsible for many important functions including detoxification, protein synthesis, nutrient storage, and more. It’s one of the most vital organs in the body.
Question: What happens when someone punches you in the liver?
A well-placed shot to the liver (even one that’s not particularly hard) can put you in excruciating pain. If you’ve yet to experience this sensation in your life, you can consider yourself fortunate!
A blow to the liver will likely leave you breathless and incapacitated. Your body simply shuts down.
So why does this happen? Why is your liver so vulnerable?
