Incredibly, vitamin C deficiency is an epidemic, particularly in the Western world. The consumption of fresh or garden-grown vegetation/fruit, the major contributor of vitamin C, is nil in Western populations. Fruit may appear fresh and have minimal or low vitamin C levels. Food processing and heating aggressively destroy this nutrient. Recent studies indicate that as many as 40% of Americans, that is tens of millions of individuals, fail to procure sufficient vitamin C through the diet to meet the daily needs. Thus, low level deficiency is virtually the norm in Americans and Canadians. Any individual who eats primarily grains, beans, pasta, bread, potatoes, sweets, chocolate, and similar sugary or starchy foods is assuredly deficient in this critical nutrient.
