I get offal from the Farmer's market (grass fed beef innards), Asian market (duck gizzards, pork hearts), and a Mediterranean store (all kinds of goat/sheep innards, including tripe) close to where I live in the Bay Area.

yes, bother with it. the liver detoxifies the animal, but it doesn't store toxins, that's sort of a myth. liver doesn't have much fat, so worrying about the fatty acid composition isn't really worth it. eat that liver!
