Throughout this month the Canadian Liver Foundation has been educating the public as part of Liver Health Month. Bianca Pengelly says a healthy diet is one of the ways people can reduce their risk of developing liver disease. She explains if you follow your Canadian Health Food Guide that’s a really great way to help yourself because a great diet like eating as much food as your supposed to even though the chart isn’t great for everyone. She adds speaking to your doctor about what would be the best kind of diet would be great.
Pengelly says a common misconception is that alcohol is a leading cause of liver disease, but that’s not the case. She says liver disease affects people of all ages.
