Athletic endurance effects[edit]

Proc Soc Exp Biol Med. 1951 Jul;77(3):488-91.

Beneficial effect of liver feeding on swimming capacity of rats in cold water. ERSHOFF BH.

In a classic experiment, Dr. B. H. Ershoff demonstrated that liver extract was able to boost endurance. Dr. Ershoff took three groups of rats and fed them controlled diets for a twelve week period. Group one ate a basic diet fortified with vitamins and minerals. Group two ate as much as they wanted of the same diet plus B vitamins and brewer's yeast. Group three ate the basic diet but had 10% desiccated liver added to their rations.

Then the doctor placed the rats one by one into a drum of water, out of which they could not climb. The group one rats swam an average of 13.2 minutes before they all drowned. Group two, an average of 13.4 minutes. Group three, however, were still swimming at the end of two hours, at which time the experiment was concluded. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 06:04, 28 July 2013 (UTC)

"poached skate liver on toast in England"[edit]

I'm English, a big foodie, a fan of liver, and I have never heard of this.

Furthermore, when googled the results all seem to have simply copy & pasted the statement from this article; is there any evidence for this supposed dish? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:57, 31 July 2016 (UTC)
