I take fermented cod liver oil daily (from Green Pastures if you google). I have been taking four caps per day for the past two years. I was introduced to this small company from the Weston Price Foundation. Anyway, i have always been thoroughly... (more)
I have been making a pate from beef liver (grass fed) mushrooms and onion, and it is delicious! I thought I had bragging rights and was offering to share but my friends and family refuse to even try it because they believe that I am eating the... (more)
Interesting article by Chris Masterjohn: http://blog.cholesterol-and-health.com/2010/11/sweet-truth-about-liver-and-egg-yolks.html If I am getting this right, he is saying that fatty liver is not directly caused by too much sugar, alcohol, or fat... (more)
It seems sound to me. I think that micronutrients sometimes have much more to do with our health than we like to think so. Of course, a high carb, high fructose diet is also often low in choline and high in PUFA, the deadly combination for the liver. (more)

Today I saw that in the asian food shop they sell chicken hearts and livers. Two questions: Is it a good idea to try these? Or is it meant as cat and dog food? Do you have any favorite recipes or ideas on how to prepare them?
My wife heard from our doctor that I should avoid eggs because I have chronic hepatitis B. As a result I only get an egg once a million year(average is two eggs per year). I saw online that eggs are ok for me to eat. I don't plan to eat 25 eggs a... (more)
Your right, sorry. But yeah, there is nothing to worry about, but I high recommend eating the whole egg, not just eggs whites. I've eaten 2 egg every single day since the last 5 years and I'm perfectly fine and cholesterol levels are OK.
Turmeric greatly improves my sluggish digestion and impossible constipation, and I take a tablespoon with each meal. It is a fact that certain spices such as cinnamon and cloves can cause significant liver damage if used in excess. How much... (more)

I'm getting a new BBQ/Grill today and I'm thrilled! I know for the most part how to do meat on it but what are some of the best veggies to grill, and how do you go about it? What about tubers and other USO's? Also, can you do liver on the... (more)

i am in the uk and find oxtail, lamb hearts and sprats to be very cheap protein sources other than liver. lamb shoulder, brisket, beef neck, chicken feet and stewing meat are all cheap too. I don't really eat pork so can't comment on that.
For MTHFR, are the B12, folate found in liver or egg yolks already methylated? And does cooking damage them? Or are supplements needed? I started on methylfolate in the AM and methyl B12 at night, and have noticed some improvements in sleep... (more)
