The right kidney is found much lower than the left because it has to accommodate the liver, the largest gland in the human body. The average human liver weighs between 1.2 to 1.5 kgs. It is about 7.5 c.m to 10 c.m across. Furthermore, the liver is the only organ in the body than can regenerate a portion of its lost tissue.
