Re: Cod liver oil- isn't a liver full of toxins?

W re to toxins the liver isnt like a regular micron size rated particle filter. It doesnt intentionally filter out toxins like an air filter element would ( tho certain compounds, perhaps toxic, like metals, can and do become lodged inadvertantly).

Excepting for the livers relationship with fats, the liver filters the blood as a secondary function soley to expose the fluid to the livers functions. One of the functions of the liver is to detect toxins, neutralizes those it can, structurally, elementally rather than by capture as with the air filter particle type cleaner. The liver dissasembles the unwanted and or unneeded compounds and saves the chemical pieces tobe recombined later for other needed purposes. The liver finally directs toxins unable to be rendered safe to the fluid that runs into the intestinal system.

The small print being that there are numerous toxins that perhaps wernt involved in the environmental evolvment of the livers functions, heavy metals,ect, so some of these can become lodged in the organ and thus become problematic in ways the liver hasnt been prepared to deal with.
