    We regularly eat an entire sweet potato with our meals, once or twice a week, and a whole sweet potato has been listed at 22,000 IU, or eight times the Oz recommendation (should the Oz recommendation be 1/8 of a sweet potato). This suggests that it might be possible to get too much vitamin A in our food if we are not careful (I used to eat half of the sweet potato tray we made for dinner, which probably was over 50,000 IU of vitamin A).

    I think, but am not sure, that an occasional excess of vitamin A may not be as life threatening as a long term overdosing (by Oz recommendations), although it isn’t optimum.

    I recently watched a show on sleep periods and foods that can improve sleep patterns. I have never been a good sleeper and was in the 5 hour range. Dr. OZ noted that Brazil nuts were high in Selinium and could be a cure for this problem. I bought some nuts the next day and ate a handful. The effect was immediate. That night I slept 7 hours, and the next night 7.5 hours. Sleeping that long never would have otherwise been possible in the past. I might sleep that long once or twice a year but never two nights in a row. I awoke totally well rested and did not feel like nodding off during the day. Amazing!!!
