________ is the organ that is generally affected by jaundice.
Jaundice is the most common of all liver problems. The yellow colour of the skin and mucous membranes happens because of an increase in the bile pigment, bilirubin in the blood. Bile is an important secretion of the liver which is very important for digestion and is stored in the gall bladder temporarily. People with jaundice have a problem with their liver which stops it from removing dead red blood cells properly.
