Alcohol, drugs (as in some medical drugs), viral infections (Hepatitis A, B C, D and E, CMV, EBV...) toxins (mushrooms, toxic herbs), parasitic infections (hydatic cysts) Metabollic causes (wilson's disease=copper accumulation, metabollic syndrom X =insulin resistance) and finally High fat intake

some medications cause liver damage...so can some vitamin supplements (such as Iron)...also depending on the persons health and age too, medications they take don't always breakdown (dissolve) in their system and that could cause liver damage.

drinking, heroin, binge mcdonalds,

Your liver is a large, multilobed organ located on the right-hand side of your abdomen.

Several common functions of your liver include:

* Filtering toxins, bacteria and waste products from your blood
* Producing many substances, including proteins that help your blood clot (clotting factors) and bile, which breaks down fats
* Storing vitamins, iron, sugar and cholesterol

When your liver fails, its ability to perform any of these functions is hampered.

Causes of acute liver failure include:

*

Drugs. Acetaminophen (Tylenol, others) overdose is the most common cause of acute liver failure. Many other medications, including herbal supplements such as kava extract, can cause drug reactions that lead to liver failure; however, these types of reactions are rare.

Using recreational drugs like Ecstasy and cocaine also can lead to acute liver failure.
*

Viruses. Hepatitis A and hepatitis B are the viruses that most often cause acute liver failure in the U.S., while hepatitis E is a more common cause in countries where the virus is endemic, especially among pregnant women.

Other viruses associated with acute liver failure include cytomegalovirus, herpes simplex virus, Epstein-Barr virus, hemorrhagic fever viruses and paramyxovirus.
* Toxins. Toxins from bacteria and industrial chemicals, such as carbon tetrachloride, can damage your liver. The wild mushroom Amanita phalloides, which is sometimes mistaken for other edible species, is poisonous and causes acute liver failure.
* Autoimmune disease. Autoimmune hepatitis is a disease in which your immune system attacks liver cells, causing inflammation and injury.
* Vascular disease. Conditions that cause blockages to form in the veins of the liver can cause acute liver failure. These include portal vein thrombosis, Budd-Chiari syndrome and veno-occlusive disease.
* Metabolic disease. Rare metabolic diseases, such as Wilson's disease, acute fatty liver of pregnancy and Reye's syndrome infrequently cause acute liver failure.
* Cancer. Malignant tumors that grow in your liver or cancer that spreads to your liver from another organ can cause your liver to fail.

In about 15 percent of cases of acute liver failure, there's no identifiable cause.
