The human body is amazing. Just like Wolverine, our liver has the incredible ability to completely regrow, and it only needs as little as 25 percent of the original tissue to do so.
When a person donates more than half of their liver to someone who needs a transplant, the liver returns to its original size in nearly two weeks. Your liver weighs about 3 pounds - the same as a puppy and is the size of a football - but is rubbery to the touch. Tucked beneath your ribcage and located on the right, this mighty organ has lots of functions including production of bile, decomposition of red blood cells, plasma protein synthesis, and detoxification.
