A Conversation for The Liver and its Diseases
Big Ben Started conversation Aug 12, 1999
Do NOT eat polar bears liver. It apparently contains toxic levels of one of the vitamins (i've forgotten which).

On the other hand, gently sauteed calves liver is divine, and should be eaten in great quantities whenever possible!
This is not to be confused with the slabs of shoe leather we were all served during school dinners!!

Don't eat any type of liver! This organ is the filter of the body. Anything gross or potentially harmful to the animal (lawn chemicals, DDT, radioactive pellets, etc.) ends up in the liver. I may be silly, but eating a bunch of chemicals neatly packaged in an animal's body part and smothered with onions seems like a very, very bad idea!

The liver gets rid of these nasty things, it dosn't act as some internal land fill for all that's awful. Maybe that makes it the only safe thing to eat(apart from the polar bears of course) or maybe the consumption of animals irrespective of their wishes and against the ecological need of the planet is irresponsible arrogance - or maybe I'm a pious git....who knows?

What a bizarre attitude! Just because the liver (and the kidney) are responsible for eliminating xenobiotics, it does not mean they store them! In fact the fat is the place where toxins tend to persist. It just goes to show how a little knowledge is dangerous!

Really? That hasn't been my experience. You are maintaining the status quo - simple as that.
