June 6 ( - The liver is a vital organ that is responsible for detoxification of chemicals. However, in the process of the detoxification, many chemicals can be metabolized into carcinogens that may in turn damage the liver. Hepatitis virus can also damage the liver, drastically raising the risk of liver cancer.

People who have been infected with hepatitis virus, particularly those who are chronic carrier of the virus should take better care of their diet to minimize further damage to the liver. The following may help minimize the damage to the liver.

1) Reduce use of corn and peanut products if you can. These two foods can harbor aflatoxin B producing molds. Aflatoxins can be transformed in the body into highly toxic chemical that causes liver cancer.

2) Reduce or avoid use of animal proteins particularly dairy protein in your diet. According to T. Colin Campbell, Ph.D., a retired nutrition professor from Cornell University, use of animal proteins promotes carcinogenesis. When animal proteins are avoided, aflatoxin causes minimal harm to the liver, Dr. Campbell found in his studies.

3) Reduce or avoid use animal proteins can also minimize the potential damage by hepatitis B virus to the liver.

4) Avoid diets with high fat. Fat deposited on the liver can cause troubles to the liver.

5) Reduce intake of food contaminants or pollutants. Toxic chemicals can damage the liver.

While animal proteins promote cancer development, plant proteins do not have the same detrimental effect, according to Dr. Campbell.
