sometimes people fear what they don't understand, and Liver Cleanses seem to be it in your crowd. 1/2 cup olive oil really ISN'T that much oil. when you eat salads with dressing you are eating a few tablespoons of fat in each meal... add that up over a short period of time, and you have more oil than a cleanse.
more likely, you knew at some level that you had a problem with your liver, and you started to do Liver Flushes as a result. then you got diagnosed. my guess is you would have been diagnosed regardless of flushing.
do you feel better or worse since doing the cleanses?
i looked up these foods -
1/2 cup (4 oz) of olive oil has 108 grams of fat
1/2 cup of butter has 92 grams of fat
1/2 cup of cream cheese has 40 grams of fat
1/2 cup (8 tbsp) of ranch dressing has 60 grams of fat
1/2 cup beef sausage has 38 grams of fat
1/2 cup (4 1oz cookies) of chocoloate chip cookies have 32 grams of fat, so 14 cookies == 1 cleanse
Now that I know that I'll never look at cookies the same way again :)
