In brief: Read the label
Although hypervitaminosis a does occasionally occur when large amounts of liver (including cod liver oil and other fish oils) are regularly consumed, most cases of vitamin a toxicity result from an excess intake of vitamin a through vitamin supplements.
Since the american diet contains so many fortified foods, relationship between vitamin a and decreased bone density is growing concern.
