The liver is an organ that takes the most abuse from alcohol consumption and is probably the most commonly thought of when discussing the harming effects of alcohol on your body. Alcohol is a factor in several forms of liver disease, and may interact with risk factors for other forms of liver disease.
 
Alcohol is a demanding force in the liver requiring the liver to put aside its normal activities in order to metabolize the alcohol. In fact, metabolizing large amounts of alcohol can permanently change the liver's cell structure, which in turn impairs its ability to metabolize fats.
