The answer is that the liver is responsible for detoxifying the body of toxins... and toxins are in everything we eat, drink and breathe. Additionally, toxins are produced (including highly poisonous ammonia) as part of metabolism.
If detoxifying the blood stream wasn't enough, the liver is responsible for the production of bile, which breaks down fats in the small intestine during digestion and carries away toxins. The liver is also responsible for the production of transport proteins the circulate in the blood such as cholesterol. If that weren't enough it converts excess glucose into glycogen. It also regulates the blood levels of amino acids, and ensures that iron (important in hemoglobin for carrying oxygen) is not lost when blood cells die, but is recovered and used in the new blood cells that form. It also clears bilirubin (toxic breakdown of proteins) from the blood.
So, the work of the liver is very large and never stops day or night. Without a liver, you would survive only a few days before those toxins would kill you.
