It is "largely impossible" for provitamin carotenoids, such as beta-carotene, to cause toxicity, as their conversion to retinol is highly regulated. No vitamin A toxicity has ever been reported from ingestion of excessive amounts.

This theory questions this idea, and suggests that we're all somewhat vitamin A toxic from consuming fortified foods like milk. People actually are taking vitamin A supplements and smearing retinol creams and retinoids on their skin to prevent wrinkles. It's totally possible that many actually do have vitamin A toxicity.

It's a whole thing. Some people can't convert beta carotene to vitamin a and it builds up its own toxicity. Ever seen a vegan on a carrot juice binge? I have. Their skin is orange.

And people are eating a lot of liver these days. Liver is very high in vitamin a.

Re: Vitamin A Toxicity
Grant says he think vitamin A such aa what is in a carrot is a major contributing factor to the obesity crisis.
[link to ggenereux.blog (secure)]

Obesity Causation

I previously discussed the obesity causation topic a bit in the Weight Gain and Obesity chapter of ETFOH. However, I didn’t go too in-depth and didn’t sufficiently connect it causally with vitamin A. I’ll now try to more solidly establish that connection here.

When I first started on my vitamin A elimination diet one of the very unexpected side-effects was the effortless weight loss. My experience was not a one-off either. I had a (non-diseased) colleague report the same result. Even though we had vastly simplified our diets, it was still providing ample calories (3,000 or more) and all the required nutritional elements. Although n=2 in this study, for two men in their late fifties, to quickly drop around 30 pounds each, and without trying at all to do so, that result was quite intriguing. There was indeed something very unexpected going on here. It’s especially so considering that we’ve both effortlessly kept that weight off for three years now too.

So, with that experience, I had theorized that the body was simply getting rid of fat it no longer needed. More specifically, I had theorized that the body had originally stored the additional fat as a protective measure against excess circulating retinol. Basically, the adipose tissues were taking on some of the load from the liver and thereby scrubbing excess retinol out of circulation. After all, for the liver to take on more retinol storage, it absolutely must get fatter to accomplish that task

Re: Vitamin A Toxicity
In this video plant based dad Joey shows us his "healthy" Starch Solution lunches which are based on the 50/50 starch & vegetables method. The idea is that eating this way "diltues" the calories because it reduces the calorie density of the meal, which is supposed to cause weight loss. He has said he didn't lose any weight eating this way, but believes it was because of the weekend Taco Bell cheat meal. (oil in the tortilla & beans- not low in fat/too calorically dense). How can that be true? Isn't it more likely that the vegetables made him fat???

I had a buddy who was really into health and fitness.--and his wife too.

Decades ago, before juicers were a thing, my buddies wife got into drinking carrot juice. The effects were a long time coming but when it hit she had to be hospitalized.

I saw her a day or so after she came back home which was about a week from the time she became ill. She still had a noticeable orange tint in her skin.

True story.

Retinoic Acid and Affective Disorders: The Evidence for an Association
[link to www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov (secure)]


Regular sources of vitamin A in the diet such as vegetables turn to retinoic acid or Accutane in the body once the livers capacity to store it is full.

This means that vegetables are in fact a major cause of of depression, mental illness and suicide.

Re: Vitamin A Toxicity
I used to hate liver and other organ meat. About 2 years ago, during the winter months, I had this weird, insatiable craving for liver/organ meat. For a few weeks, I was eating stuff like pate, foie gras. My body must've needed it. I haven't craved it since then. Maybe I needed the Vit A, maybe I needed iron or something else that organ meat delivers.

People are eating the rainbow daily and treating vegetables like main dishes rather than seasonings and condiments as they did previously. The effect could be worsening health, and it is the likely reason why people do not thrive on a plant based diet.

What is more picturesque to carnivore humans.

Your female tucking into a carcaass, with blood around face ( like a horror movie )

Or a chick making vegetable soup ?

I think China/Japan live long lives and its probably they are more carnivore, whilst not eating cakes etc but seen how Chinese eat but may not be accurate as it were a resturnant and may have been around any surpluss ingredients, need using.

But generally things like bass or fish on greens. Still fried chicken and fried pork but just with flour ( no crumbs ) Chilli sweet sliced beef. Vegetable chow main/noodles and then mainly a noodle soup. Sometimes even with bacon etc and msg stock.

Sometimes fancier stuff.

So a diet of meat, vegetables and average 1 or 2 portions of noodles.
