      Hahaha, okay I don&#39;t have any desire whatsoever to try testicle pizza, but I am really interested in trying some organ meats soon. You tricked me Mick, I thought this would be helpful!

          Reminds me of Bizarre Foods- Andrew Zimmern always has to try the testicles wherever he&#39;s at.


          I always HATED liver growing up but I&#39;ve been thinking lately that I need to give it another chance. Since I&#39;m eating all this crazy stuff now that I never thought I would be anyway, why not organ meat too. I saw some chicken livers in the store but was too scared yet.

            Rocky Mountain Oysters! One of the favorite pranks taking someone new the The West out to dinner. "Oh, be sure you get the oysters."

              OTB That&#39;s what I was trying to think of, I couldn&#39;t remember the name! Thanks, I&#39;ll be able to sleep tonight with that little thought out of my brain.

                Good liver is great - had some lamb&#39;s liver with bacon and onions last week that was awesome. Bad liver is simply gross.


                Remember, though, to be extra careful with sourcing your organ meats. It&#39;s a clear case where it&#39;s important to really know your source. I don&#39;t know if there are any heightened risks from testicles. However environmental contaminants and toxins tend to accumulate in liver and kidneys, to say nothing of the risk of contracting "mad cow" disease from eating beef brains from contaminated animals.

                      It seems that BSE may have been caused by organophosphate chemicals used to treat warble fly in cattle - and demanded to be the only method to treat the problem by the UK Ministry of Agriculture:

                      Under the Warble Fly Order 1982 ... the Ministry required farmers to treat warble with organophosphorus ("OP") twice a year.</blockquote>

                      Nasty insecticides these are. Farmers and agricultural workers have been ill after exposure to them:

                      Despite being ill, Casillas attempted to ride his bike to work the next morning but lost consciousness and collapsed. By the time medical help arrived, he was dead, "with foam streaming from his nose."</blockquote>

                      They also seem to have a role in "Gulf War Syndrome":

                      The other animals to exhibit "madness" at around the same time as cattle were "mad cats". Cats were also treated with an organophosphate insecticide at that time. Makes you wonder.
