Researchers at the Technical University of Dresden have concluded that the liver does not age with humans.
how old a person is – 20 or 80 – the average liver is always three years old.
This is because the liver is an organ that can regenerate itself.
To confirm Their assumptions, scientists examined the levels of radiocarbon in the liver of 33 deceased people aged 20 to 84 years. They found that the organ was about the same age – about three years – regardless of the person's age.
At the same time, the study notes that not all of the organ's cells were the same age: some regenerate every year, and some – can exist up to 10 years.
