Sailing with Scurvy and Lemons

Sailing with Scurvy and Lemons

In this Food Non-Fiction podcast episode, we talk about scurvy and its Vitamin C cure. Although the cure for scurvy was discovered a long time ago, changes in the understanding of science, medicine and the human body, caused people time turn away from the tried and true cure of fresh fruits and vegetables time and time again.
We discuss the various events that brought the fresh produce cure in and out of favor.
