    Your question is very easy to solve if you look up the upper daily limit for vitamin A (and copper, liver has a ton of copper) and how much of each are in liver. Works out to be about once or twice a week if you eat a lot of it

    I don't think there's ever been a documented case of vitamin A poisoning that wasn't from synthetic supplements.

        Polar bear liver contains high levels of cadmium, which is poisonous.
        Nobody has ever died from eating too much liver from other animals, unless it contained other poisonous substances.

        Congrats on mindlessly parroting plant-based propaganda.

        It can happen if you take a lot of isolated vitamin.

        Most supplements are a scam. The substances in the pill are never exactly the same as you would find them in food.
        A lot of the time, supplements are a ploy to get rid of industrial waste. You're paying so the corporations can dump their trash in you.

        polar bear liver poisoning in the arctic was due to chromium, not vitamin a

      Nah dude. Something like 30-50% of the population has chronic vitamin A toxicity when their livers are tested and they meet the definition of hypervitaminosis A in their liver.
      Especially white people who ate a lot of dairy are at risk, but people on weird diets like sweet potatos, carrots and liver can also get it.

    Vitamin A overdose is like filling up a bucket (your liver is the bucket).
    If the bucket isn't full, then you can keep eating liver, and other high vitamin A foods without suffering from too much consequences.
    But when the bucket gets full, it's nearly impossible to empty the bucket again - without causing severe damage and disease to your body.
    You know how dermal vitamin A is used in skincare to make your skin peel off? Well the same shit happens internally when your liver is full of vitamin A, and has no where else to dump it but inside your body where it burns your internal tissues.

    Here is a case study:
    Anon was on a high organ meat carnivore diet for several months, where he consumed liver several times a week. He noticed that he health turned to absolute shit several months into the diet, before realizing he had given himself vitamin A poisoning. He estimates he consumed 4.5 million IU of vitamin during this time. The average male liver weighs 1450 grams, which gives a liver concentration of 931 microgram vitamin A per gram of liver tissue, which is nearly 400% (286microgram/g = 1micromol/g) the limit of vitamin A toxicity for the liver.
    So based on anon's example, it is very much possible to give yourself vitamin A toxicity by eating liver on a regular basis for several months.

      that assumes the body keeps absorbing the vitamin A from liver the same way as it absorbs synthetic vitamin A. with 7 billion people on this earth, you'd expect at least one person to have overdosed on vitamin A from beef/sheep/chicken liver. but I don't think that's ever been documented.

      I have some polar bear liver for you to try. Go ahead, take a bite.

      n=1 and could've easily been heavy metal poisoning, some other kind of toxin, or something else entirely.

        >that assumes the body keeps absorbing the vitamin A from liver the same way as it absorbs synthetic vitamin A.
        Well that's a pretty good assumption because that's exactly what happens. When animal form of vitamin A is ingested, the first thing the liver does is bind it for storage in the liver - unless the liver's storage capacity is full and then it starts to release it which causes the internal tissues to burn and you get all fricked up diseases like eczema, sun sensitivity, skin diseases and anxiety.

        >you'd expect at least one person to have overdosed on vitamin A from beef/sheep/chicken liver. but I don't think that's ever been documented.
        Like I mentioned already, 30-50% of the population already has chronic vitamin A toxicity when their liver's are tested.

        The effect of vitamin A overdose depends on the doseage and the detox timeline. If you eat polar bear liver, you get a rapid painful death. If you eat beef liver on a regular basis, you start to develop painful degenerative diseases that kills you over a multiple years timeline. And if you eat huge amounts of milk, sweet potatos, etc on a regular basis, it kills you on a multiple decades long basis - but the most serious effect here is chronic degenerative diseases, as you have chronic toxicity aka poisoning.

          it's all (bad) speculation. if what you say is true, then statistically there must be many cases of severe vitamin A overdosis simply because beef/lamb/chicken liver contains so insanely much more vitamin A than milk/potatoes/whatever else.

            There is a difference between chronic toxicity and acute toxicity.
            It's very hard to get acute toxicity that will lead to death. But it's very easy to get chronic toxicity symptoms causing chronic disease.

            If you're a young zoomer, your liver probably hasn't reached it's storage capacity yet for vitamin A, so you won't hardly notice any negative effects from ingesting it. Until suddenly one day you have a health crisis where your health detiorioates overnight, as your liver begins to release the poison it has been storing up for decades.

      False. Do some research before spewing nonsense.
      Although to be fair, everyone who takes accutane gives themselves retinoid poisoning.

          This is a documented case of vitamin A poisoning from sweet potatos. Not liver, but it's still a good read.
          It's not proven of course, but he makes a good case.

        that is why pure retinol is banned and instead all you have is a weak ass tretinoin derivative
        there is a way to get like 0.02% or 0.2% retinol from india iirc and let it be marked as tretinoin for border control reasons
        in any case you shouldnt play with vit a

      It only happens with the livers of carnivores. Plenty of stories of people getting sick in the artic after eating too much liver, particularly that of polar bears and seals.

    A single polar bear liver (about 500 g) has an astonishing 9 million IU of vitamin A, and acute human toxicity occurs at about 300,000 IU!

    Beef liver has 18000 IU per 100g (not enough to cause acute toxicity).
    1L milk has 484 IU - not enough to cause acute toxicity, but if you drink a few liters a day for decades, it keeps adding up to a chronic disease condition.

    depends on the ttpe of liver but i would advise against beef, lamb, or exotic
    chicken and pork are safe
    you overdose on lipid-soluable vitamins that get stored in every fat cell and in turn poison blood supply if you eat too much
    this is how people discovered polar bear liver is the most toxic of them all
    a bite is enough to kill a man cause it has 10000x the normal amount of vitamins

    Skin peeling by vitamin A related compounds in skincare products. Does the same shit to your internal tissues if your liver wasn't so wise as to store it away safely for you.

    if you're gonna eat it consistently, probably best to not eat it more than once a week. slightly larger portion if you're eating chicken liver, slightly smaller portion if you're eating pork/beef liver.
