Caption

Medical visualization of how abdominal fat can damage your liver. The blood that flows through your visceral fat (the fat deep inside your abdomen) circulates differently from other blood in your body. Instead of draining into your systemic circulation, it drains into the portal vein, which leads directly into your liver. That means that all the dangerous substances visceral fat produces pour directly into your liver. Scientists think this may have important, and damaging, consequences. One such consequence is fatty liver disease.
