I've recently learned that liver is a very nutrient-dense food. I've added it to my diet (organic chicken livers from Wholefoods) and have developed a taste for it (finally!) when I discovered how nutritious it is.
I've noticed a marked difference in my finger and toe nails (stronger but not brittle and growing more) and less sensitivities in my teeth. An article I read was specifically for strengthening the teeth.
Then, I learned from a neighbor that it can higher cholesterol. I discussed it with my doctor and he also said it can raise cholesterol. Others say that cholesterol is so beneficial to the body -- especially the brain -- that the concentration needs to be on inflammation regarding the heart.
My doctor didn't seem too concerned but just said, "Let's check your cholesterol in three months."
I've been eating 2 to 3 ounces a day.
Is there an amount that would be considered "moderation"?
I've heard that the Weston Price Foundation recommends 1/2 to 1 cup a week.
What is your take on the subject? Do you eat liver?
