Thank you. And the orange skin was the result of an overdose of Vitamin A. Could have been fatal. That's why Inuits do not eat the liver of the Walrus and other wild meat that they kill.

There is such a thing as 'too much of a good thing.'

If you have a juicer orange and carrots make a great juice.

Wise parents. You can be sure you also were giving your little one an overdose of Vitamin A. He should have great eyesight though. Vitamin A is also found in organ meats such as liver. It is really concentrated in wild animals. Thus Inuits and other folks who live off of what they hunt, do not eat the liver. They feed it to their dogs.
