That's one of the reasons why I tink the liver is just one of the coolest organs. Metabolizes drugs, helps with digestion, can regrow... the list goes on. I'm probably going to have to go with the typical answer and say the brain. Just thinking about how much it does day and night baffles me. Dreaming, emotions, pain, involuntary muscle actions... just one organ that controls all of that. Fascinating.

As much as I love the brain, and am amazed by its powers of rewiring and re-building itself after disaster or to accommodate new input, I’m still more a fan of the liver. The metabolism of toxins is so fascinating…plus there’s the whole “starfish-y” aspect of it, which is nifty as hell.
