Also, Alonzo, while I laud your care for misuse of resources, do
please understand that vitamin C is made synthetically, at very
low cost, and in large quantities in many source nations around the
world. If there are people who do not have it available, it's not
due to a shortage of actual supply anywhere in the world. It may
be that nobody brings it to certain populations, but that's not due
to a shortage of the vitamin, but rather, a shortage of the
political will or finances to bring it....
I know that vitamine ‘C’ is made synthetically,
Many people around the world don’t have anything and can’t even pay
for very low costs. You would be surprised of the numbers of them!
People with aids, heavy smokers, children, fastfood orientated
persons and ordinary stressed people -maybe even you- need vitamine C
more then a bath of pickle. Take it yourself and get the benefit out
of it or give it to homeless ones. I believe that many victims of the
Sandy storm and the poor ones from Haiti require vitamine C at this
very moment to support their body rather then tossing it in a bath of
You don’t have to look far for a better usage of this very cheap
medicine i.e. food supply, that’s my message. Your message is ‘don’t
care about it, it’s cheap so it’s ok’
Politicals do whatever they like to do and not all country’s do what
they are supposed to do for the best of their citizens. That’s not a
good reason to cover the missuse of a medicine/food supply, cheap or
“And finally, a deficit of vitamin C causes the disease scurvy. That
is very rare these days.”
Completely small viewed vision!
Ever heard of vitamin C deficiency anemia, Crohn’s disease,
diseases due to lack of vit C, and many more?
Understand that I’m not attacking you but I strongly do critisize
your way of minimizing the importance of vit C, synthetic or not.
Have fun and enjoy
