Is Cod liver oil harmful ?

(expletive removed), I just started taking Cod liver oil capsules & I found this posting on another forum : "all livers have the toxins of the creature and at the point of its death, the liver is the last thing you would want to consume". Should I stop taking Cod liver oil ?

not sure you expletive is appropriate for a spiritual forum like this. but anyway, cod liver oil is very good for you, very high doses may give you too much Vitamin A or Vitamin D which could be toxic, however this would be very hard to do!

go here to find out more about cod liver oil.: www.newmediaexplorer...r_one_superfood.htm#

and here to find out about vitamin toxicity: www.chiroweb.com/archives/11/07/06.html

bottom line is that cod live oil and fish oil are two of the best vitamins you can take! just about every single human being should be taking them.

Yoga likes one to practice non violence, but yoga also understands no one is perfect

I was born in a Brahmin (Hindu) family & I've been taught about 'Ahimsa' since I was born, but for me health is my priority & we all have different priorities in life & a multitude of diverse interests & views.

anyway after reading the article on this site : www.westonaprice.org/envtoxins/dioxins.html

(a must read for vegetarians, vegans and anyone in between) & an exhaustive research and consultations all my doubts regarding cod liver oil got cleared. Mixing yoga with cod liver oil is not all a bad idea.

the problem with cod liver oil is it might have mercury in it. Maybe flaxseed oil is a good alternative. They both have Omega-3s. (or more corectly, cod liver oil has omega 3s and flaxseed oil has precursors to omega-3s)

i might be wrong.
