about 'chronic scurvy', which is exactly what you are talking about
a link you might want to chek out:: www.seanet.com/~alexs/ascorbate/197x/stone-i-orthomol_psych-1979-v8-n2-p58.htm
and soil depletion, which isn't very new either, concerns have been voiced sporadically since the early 1900s
well, i'm glad that more people are being exposed to these topics.
A: Although some have theorized a correlation between vitamin C and the development of kidney stones, research contradicts the hypothesis. The theory is based on two unrelated observations: 1) A portion of ingested vitamin C produces oxalate or oxalic acid 2) Individuals with increased oxalate in their urine may have a greater risk of developing kidney stones Extensive research, however, has shown that a "healthy person who avoids dehydration and ingests very large amounts of vitamin C does not need to have any concern about kidney stone formation." In 1999, two studies conducted at Harvard showed that vitamin C is not a factor in the development of kidney stones in healthy adults. Curhan et al. (1999) followed 85,557 women for 14 years and found no statistical association with vitamin C and increased risk of kidney stone development. An earlier study of 45,251 healthy men with no history of kidney stones reached the same conclusion with dosage levels that ranged from 250mg to 1,500 mg of vitamin C daily.
The second chakra also rules the kidneys, which is where we eliminate our water. This chakra rules our second dimensional self, which is represented by the plant kingdom and less evolved creatures such as fish. Both plants and fish must have water to survive.

My second-cousin actually has Lupus, so I plan on talking to her very soon about any existing kidney, and thyroid problems she may have.
