What is the consensus on liver for nutrition? Not something I can picture myself eating but was wondering. Bill Starr talks very highly about it in the 70s classic Strongest Shall Survive. I believe John Mccallum talks about it in The Complete Keys to Progress series as well.
Typing out of a passage in Bill Starr’s book.
Your liver does so many things for your body that listing them is like recording all the functions of your body. Linda Clark in Stay Younger Longer lists a few: The liver is basic to the strong heartbeat, the wide open channels of your blood vessels, the soundness of your digestion, the sharpness of your brain, the stength of your life…(goes on)…
(from next paragraph) You can easily see why you need to give this vital organ all the help that you possibly can. The best food to supply the liver with all the nutrients it needs is the liver itself. For the hard training athlete it is of paramount importance that you get plenty of this organ food in you diet in some form or another. It supplies so many essential nutrients like: protein, fatty acids, phosphours, iron, copper, zinc, iodine, Vitamin A and D, inositol, cholin, folic acid, Vitamin B12, pantothenic acid, Vitamin B6, niacin, thiamine, and roboflavin, In fact, liver is a source of all the B-Complex Vitamins and is a most excellent way to obtain an abundent supply of th B group. The poteins found in liver are complete so it is an excellent source of this nutrient.
Anyway I was just curious what current thinking is on this.
