  • i have heard to stay away from TOO MUCH vit A. If you drink a couple glasses of milk daily that will not over do it. Even with your prenatal vit's.

  • also keep in mind most of the stuff we are told to stay away from (with the exception of alcohol and drugs/cigarettes)...were tested in labs and the rats (closest thing to human tissue) were given massive amounts of these things like vit A and even try to take all the advice people are dying to give you with a grain of salt...moderation is the key.

  • what? vitamin A is in prenatal vitamins? i have never heard of this... if a person, pregnant or not takes TOO MUCH vitamin A it could be dangerous, but we are talking major amounts.
