    Is it true that a single serving of polar bear liver can kill you because of its high vitamin A content?

    i think 99% of Canadians will ignore the answer.
    I did till i googled it lol.

    seems high amounts of retinol in polar bears and seals will make you sick, with mild to severe conditions , extreme ones resulting in death.
    Inuits never eat arctic animals' livers for that reason.

    I'm just waiting for some polar bear anti age day cream.

    I would actually say that it would probably take a serving and a half.

    with a full serving you might feel dizzy, disoriented possibly even pass out. But its not enough to kill you.

    I'll just stick to eating seal meat if that's true. Yum.

    I remain confused why anyone would be eating Polar Bear ANYTHING. Unless you're an Inuit, who might kill a Polar Bear out of self defense, why is this a valid question?

    It was just a factoid at the beginning of the lecture on Vitamin A. ( http://www.realjock.com/gayforums/765977 ) Of course, we all know Vit. A can be toxic cuz it is fat soluble. I was just curious if it was true. I figured canadians would know...that, and all about blubber. ... I just presume they would be taught from an early age to pick around the liver when dining out on polar bear carass, if it were true. .. So it would be easy for them to answer. ... Besides I was busy watching the lecture and didnt want to search for myself. ... icon_wink.gif

    In fact, if I remember my Canadian history, didnt the first Canadian Thanksgiving end on a rather sour note, when the Inuits who were invited brought polar bear liver pie and served it to the pale faces. .....They werent invited back for 300 years, if memory serves me ... I think it was just a big misunderstanding over calling them Eskimos or something like that. ... icon_rolleyes.gif

    Well it's still illegal (at least in Canada) to kill a polar bear unless it's going to attack you, and in that case if you're still worried about the Vitamin A content in the liver, something is seriously wrong. I think it'd be cool to see a shaved polar bear... their skin is black. I just wouldn't want to be the one to shave it.

    I am sure that there is some old Eskimo (from Edmonton) who could remember various recipes for Polar Bear liver.

    I must admit I prefer the more cosmopolitan recipes that we use for Polar Bears here in the cities.
    I am partial to the punjab style Butter Polar Bear Liver that I can get the Indian take out place in my neighbourhood, eh.

    I get the joke but it isn't in all instances. It depends entirely to what degree or extent and also heavily on the "quality" of the genes we're talking about. Mostly what inbreeding does is give the chance for hereditary, recessive genes which cause defects or illness to pair up if they exist in that family. The same, however, is true for genes which are good.


    This repy gives us new insights into Nova Scotians. Guess my grandmother was right all along.
