Not true: The liver is a complex abdominal organ that neutralizes toxin, makes bile, etc. The liver is not involved with allergies. Allergies are the result an over exuberant immune response proteins that are usually not a problem. The usual organs involved in allergy are: skin, lungs, nose, eyes, tongue, esophagus, stomach, and intestines.
