Birth Defects and Fat-Soluble Vitamin A

Deficiencies in vitamin A in these pig experiments led to defects in the snout, dental arches, eyes, feet (such as clubbed feet), and displaced kidneys, ovaries or testes. A lack of vitamin A produced extreme incoordination, spasms and paralysis. It also led to aborted and stillborn pigs. In cattle, vitamin A deficiencies produced the birth of dead or weak calves and led to sterility in females. Researchers were able to produce varying severities of birth defects based upon how much vitamin A they supplied in the mother’s diet. The less vitamin A supplied, the more severe the birth defects. Again, in several experiments and variations, the pigs with defects had healthy offspring when vitamin A was restored to the diet.

Modern science has now more accurately shown that a vitamin A deficiency in women can cause birth defects in the heart, central nervous system, the circulatory, urogenital and respiratory systems, and the improper development of the skull, skeleton and limbs. Vitamin A is found in grass-fed liver, raw grass-fed butter, wild-caught seafood, farm-raised egg yolks, and raw grass-fed milk. This preformed and easily assimilated vitamin A is different from and yet complementary to the carotenes found in vegetables like carrots that the body can partially convert into vitamin A in some circumstances.

Ramiel's book really helped us along this journey and I can't recommend this book enough. It's truly is life changing!! If you are going to buy a diet / nutritional / lifestyle book for pre-pregnancy, pregnancy or for children, this book would be my number one choice.
