    Take-home from the above paper:
    "Vitamins A and D are toxic when provided alone, but safe when provided together. " Like in real foods. Besides at the risk of a WWGD analogy, do you really think Grok would turn down seconds on wooly mammoth liver because he was thinking about vitamin A toxicity? No. He would have stuffed his face and then maybe not had any for a while and would have been just fine.

    Bummer. I should tell you how toxic that pate' is and then I might get some. Now I'll just have to make my own.

    ^Yup that is the take home. The more I look at supplements (even vitamin D) the more I'm realizing how unbalanced of an approach they are. No wonder the trials on their effectiveness are all over the board.

    Dammit...
    Now I need to go shopping for stuff to make pate.

    So delicious!

    I wonder if CW guy is going to warn me that I'll OD on vitamin A because I'm going to eat a pound of liver this week.

    I just took my vitamin D supplement a.k.a. having breakfast outside and reading for about 45 minutes.

    Bah, I'm surrounded by gloating sun worshipers.....I think I need to move to a sunnier climate myself. On a happier note I'm thawing out some lamb liver thanks to this thread OP.

    Just bought liver myself, but take 10,000 IU D3 daily for over a year now...got my blood levels up to high-normal. how's this D toxicity manifest itself anyway?

    Actually 28 degrees isn't out of line for recent mornings here in NorCal/SF Bay... My favorite trail (up the E side of a mountain) has had frost/ice on it all last week. still got the sunshine tho.

    Count me in. It's a rare week that I don't eat a pound of chicken liver. Even before primal, chicken livers sauteed in wine/vermouth with onions was one of my favorite meals.

    Oh if you read that masterjohn link you'll see that one thing is increased incident of kidney stones. Seems to me that the people at most risk are those on SAD that never even heard of liver that are now supplementing D like there is no tomorrow.. If your eating that liver regularly I don't think I'd be as concerned as your getting lots of vitamin A to work with that D.
