    Check for walrus too. I think all the arctic mammals have super concentrations of vitamin A in their livers. I haven't managed to reason out why that might be yet, but I'm thinking it might have something to do with the accessibility of sunlight there and the interaction of vitamins A & D.

    I think Vitamin A is stored in Liver & D in Fat.

    The ideal ratio is somewhere around 1:10 A

    So for every bite of polar bear liver have 10 bites of polar bear fat.

    Don't go seal fat, too much polyunsaturated, but if you can get your hands on it Caribou is great.

    Mmmmmm liver. I just had a pound of lamb liver yesterday! Have a pound of chicken livers still in the fridge. Probably thaw out some beef liver for next week and go for the trifecta. Can't get my hands on that damn polar bear stuff. Liver is great for ya.

    According to nutrition.com data liver is "highly inflammatory".

    Dont know if that's true, but I do know that I get an inflammatory response (flushing etc) to food quite easily and bleeding gums is a symptom of inflammation.
    "I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

    In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

    Too much copper in proportion to zinc.

    Also, one should never eat too much liver at once. Limit to 8oz a month. Though, it's definitely not the vitamin a that is causing a problem. Vitamin a toxicity is overblown, and I've never heard of it happening aside from that case of heavy polar bear liver consumption in a climate that has a severe lack of sun(vitamin d). I personally get 10,000-100,000(in summer) IU per day. It depends on your thyroid and metabolism for processing it.

    LIVER!!! LIVER is what makes you LIVE! LIVER LIVER LIVER!
    The only problem is, this position ignores the interactions between fat-soluble vitamins. Vitamin D strongly protects agains vitamin A toxicity and vice versa. As a matter of fact, "vitamin A toxicity" is almost certainly a relative deficiency of vitamin D. Vitamin D deficiency is also tightly correlated with low bone mineral density, osteoporosis and fracture risk. A high vitamin A intake requires vitamin D to balance it. The epidemiological studies showing an association between high-normal vitamin A intake and reduced bone health all sported populations that were moderately to severely vitamin D deficient on average. At optimal vitamin D levels, 40-70 ng/mL 25(OH)D, it would take a whopping dose of vitamin A to induce toxicity. You might get there if you eat nothing but beef liver for a week or two.

    That chart is a lot of bullshit.

    Flushing and that inflammatory response is hypoglycemia from too much protein without adequate sugar to balance it out.
