Excess Poison/"Vitamin A" intake in pregnancy results in higher Poison/"Vitamin A" in baby's liver

It is a monkey study.  I would consider it safe to ASSume that this process happens in mothers too.  Note that the "preformed Vitamin A" they mention is the same retinol that is found in the (infamous around here) cod liver oil.

Ingestion of excessive preformed vitamin A by mothers amplifies storage of retinyl esters in early fetal livers of captive Old World monkeys.

Therefore, excessive intake of preformed VA by the mothers results in amplified early fetal liver retinyl ester storage.

Retinyl ester blood tests are one way of indirectly estimating the amount of Poison/"Vitamin A" stored in the liver.  If that is too high, it is considered a marker of toxicity.
