Vitamin A—taking the right amount

National mania to pop vitamins
I’ve always liked bears. So I find it hard to understand how hunters can slaughter them. That’s why I like this medical story of how the bear, although killed, had the last laugh.
Hunters tracked down a bear and shot it. After the kill they were looking forward to a meal. They all loved liver and consumed large quantities. But although great hunters, they were obviously babes in the wood when it came to bear’s livers. They didn’t know that bear livers contains massive amounts of vitamin A. And so I shed few tears to learn that they all suffered from vitamin A poisoning. Maybe they’ll spare the next bear!
