Case Study: [Yellow, but healthy. Report of 4 cases of diet-induced carotenosis].

Note that the "slightly increased Vitamin A levels" means that they had hypervitaminosis A.

[Yellow, but healthy. Report of 4 cases of diet-induced carotenosis].

Four women who had been following a "healthy" diet based on carrots and citrus fruits for some time presented with yellow-tinged skin. All four patients had high carotene levels in the blood, and three were also found to have slightly increased vitamin A levels. The other laboratory test results were normal. They were prescribed diets that did not contain carotene-rich foods, and both skin colour and laboratory tests returned to normal.

I will pull out the important parts for ease of reference:

  • Carrots and citrus fruits were their main carotenoid (Poison/"Vitamin A") sources. I like the quotes on "healthy" diet. *snort*
  • They got yellow skin.
  • High beta-carotene levels in the blood (called serum beta-carotene).
  • High Vitamin A levels in the blood (called serum retinol).  This came directly from the carotenoids, folks!
  • Avoiding high-carotenoid foods got their skin, blood beta-carotene, and blood Vitamin A levels BACK TO NORMAL.

It is important to understand that there is a direct cause-and-effect relationship laid out here for you.

Foods, including high-carotenoid ones, can cause Poison/"Vitamin A" toxicity all by themselves.  Anyone who says they cannot is ignorant of the evidence.
