Sharing this article https://www.nytimes.com/2017/06/12/health/liver-bodily-function.html
about liver function and evolution. For all the advocates of eating "paleo" like "human ancestors," I found the penultimate paragraph especially interesting:

“Our ancestors didn’t have healthy refrigerated food,” he said. “They ate a lot of crap, probably literally, and the liver in prehistoric times was continuously bombarded with toxins. You need every mechanism there is to adapt to that.”
