Part of that is the Balsam of Peru that they contain. If you study the good and bad about that it is very interesting. Balsam of Peru can be bad for
people who smoke, it can accelerate the benzene levels in the body too high. Benzoates are needed and are present in many foods but overloading them
can cause a whole slew of problems.
Balsam of Peru was at one time thought as a panacea, but the medical industry didn't completely comprehend
societies obsession with self medicating and this caused problems. It was added to a lot of food, now they still use it, benzoates and benzoic acid
Balsam of Peru contains more chemistry than these food adatives though, a grapefruit contains more than just Balsam of Peru. I think the Balsam of
Peru causes the breakout of coldsores when you eat citrus fruit. It seems to somehow effect the herpes virus I think. I don't think it is the
vitamin C itself.
