Multiple things thought to be healthy that make Poison/"Vitamin A" toxicity WORSE

Why might one want to purchase my Poison/"Vitamin A" and Glyphosate Detox Program?  It is precisely because of the research I do (research is sort of my thing), and the below study is one amazing example of the factors that are beyond just simple searches of Vitamin A contents of foods!

Here is the paper (the PubMed link is below, the FULL paper is attached at the bottom of this post):

Potentiating effects of materials of plant and animal origin on symptoms of hypervitaminosis A in the rat.

I'm going to summarize this for you, although you're welcome to read the whole paper.

These things made pre-existing Poison/"Vitamin A" toxicity WORSE in these rats (yet some of them do not contain much, if any, Poison/"Vitamin A" at all):

  • Alfalfa meal (for humans, think alfalfa leaf powder in "green drink" powders)
  • Dried alfalfa juice (for humans, think alfalfa juice powder in "green drink" powders)
  • Alfalfa residue (I believe this was the leftovers from juicing the alfalfa)
  • Defatted alfalfa (carotenoid-free), which means that it WASN'T the carotenoids in the alfalfa aggravating the problem, it was something else!
  • Aureomycin HCl, this is an antibiotic in the tetracycline family typically used in veterinary medicine
  • Oat grass (for all of the following grasses, again, think "green drink" powders, whether whole grass or grass juice powders, doesn't matter)
  • Dehydrated rye grass
  • Orchard grass
  • Wheat grass
  • Fescue grass
  • Dessicated liver
  • Water-insoluble liver residue
  • Water-soluble liver concentrate
  • "A product derived from fermentation sources"
  • Tuna solubles & fish solubles
  • Yeast
  • DPPD (N,N′-Diphenyl-p-phenylenediamine)
  • Palm kernel meal
  • Coconut cake
  • Acetone-extracted herring roe
  • Soybean lecithin (phosphatidylcholine)
  • Fish solubles

The symptoms of hypervitaminosis A exhibited in the present experiment by rats fed supplements of alfalfa meal and other materials appeared to be identical in appearance, time of onset, severity and incidence to those of rats fed the purified basal diet supplemented with amounts of vitamin A considerably in excess of the amounts present in the above rations. These findings suggest that supplements of alfalfa meal (and other materials) may have promoted an increased absorption or utilization (or both) of vitamin A. That unidentified factors exist in natural foodstuffs which promote utilization of vitamin A has been reported by a number of investigators.
[...]
That at least two separate factors exist in the above supplements would seem to be indicated by the observation that the yeast factor is soluble in fat solvents (Patrick and Morgan, '43) whereas the fish factor is water-soluble (Harms et al., '56b).

Note that both the fat-soluble and water-soluble fractions of liver were both included as well.  In my research, I had been becoming suspicious of lecithin being problematic already, and this sealed the deal.
