Thanks everyone, for filling in the dark corners of information about C. It still seems many people are not actually reading the thread, but just
posting "Eat oranges" or "everyone knows we need C." The thread has several main points which I've repeated several times during the day. Please
go back and read a few pages. I'll try to summarize again, because it's important:
Every living animal, plant, insect, geese, and other birds, are making ascorbic acid in their bodies every minute of the day. Great Apes, other
primates, and Guinea Pigs (poor guinea pigs!) can't make it because the enzyme chain broke long ago. So we need to scrounge for oranges and other C
sources just to keep alive, because if we didn't have their minimum C we'd die of scurvy.
So taking a total of a few grams per day, interspersed throughout the day (and yes, eat something or have something in your stomach too) gives the
body what it should be having if we didn't have that genetic illness.
Years ago in the U.S. zoos and labs which kept apes were legally required to give them a weight equivalent of 3,600 mgs (3.6 grams) of C every day.
This at the same time humans were being told 60mg was sufficient. 60! Now that's criminal, imnho.
Lots of good people have given good data on this thread, so please read it all and do your own research. I am not a doctor, and I don't even play one
on TV (damn casting agents!), but I do know that, judging from this thread alone on a site with very intelligent people talking to each other, this
knowledge is new to most. So what I'm saying is that there is a conspiracy of silence concerning Vitamin C, one joined into by the media,
politicians, and the medical and pharma industry.
