Not fixed at all, indeed.Kookaburra wrote:You mean the amount of zinc in an oyster is not fixed?
Thats true for all nutrients in all foods,
but this one is very extreme.
You dont.how do I know how much zinc I have ingested?
dont worry about the copper, in comparison to the zinc.How much copper is considered too much?
If you would eat them every day, the body would adjust accordingly.Kookaburra wrote:why is it okay to drink lots of orange juice every day, with the total amount of vitamin C being about 39 times more than the recommended RDA level but not oysters?
Yes, but that is AFTER it has been 'floating around' in the blood.The extra zinc taken up will be excreted via urine and sweat, as it is water soluble.
If you are not used to eating oysters very regularly, the body will not be that effective in taking up very little of all the available zinc.
We cant say that, because it depends on the conditions,shouldn't the extreme amounts of zinc in oysters not be a problem at all?
and thats why im urging you to be careful.
Im not saying that you shouldnt eat them.
