The Ecology of Humans (55-2) Liver


The liver is a vital organ for vertebrates, providing biochemicals for digestion and, along with kidneys, detoxifying the body. As a food source, an animal’s liver concentrates both nutrients and poisons. As such, whatever chemical bad to be had from meat is multiplied in liver. Eating liver is a wonderful way to get a dangerous dose of vitamin A, which invokes a lengthy list of symptoms, including headaches, dizziness, vision problems, vomiting, and liver damage.
