We are gradually dying of so many things there is limitless horizon for profit from our despair. While causes seem many, there is a primary underlying cause. A few species including man, became enzyme-deficient so their bodies can no longer create ascorbic from glucose. Ascorbic in sufficient dose-duration-context addresses nearly all of man's health issues. The illness-industries have "carefully looked away" for nearly a century. Put N=1 research into your own hands!

U.S. RDA 2012

The government's plan for your health is about as good as their plan for anything else. It's so profoundly off from "ideal" daily amounts that eating this way would mostly just keep you from dying quickly. It wouldn't make you feel good enough to live.

Just the numbers for Vitamins C and D3 (it should always be D3 you take, not synethetic D2) are so ludicrous it makes it difficult for me to take the rest of it seriously.

The recommended daily allowance (RDA) for vitamins and minerals is defined as the quantity of each nutrient an average healthy person needs to maintain healthy body function. RDAs below are based on adults leading normal lifestyles. I wanted to have this as a reference anyway so here's a whole chart as of 2012 (since these change now and then). I often have to reference one of these numbers so I might as well keep it local.



Vitamin A 800 µg
Vitamin B1 (Thiamin) 1.1 mg
Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin) 1.4 mg
Vitamin B3 (Niacin) 16 mg
Vitamin B5 (Pantothenic Acid) 6 mg
Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxal Phosphate) 1.4 mg
Vitamin B7 (Biotin) 50 µg
Vitamin B9 (Folic Acid) * 200 µg
Vitamin B12 (Cobalamin) 2.5 µg
Vitamin C 80 mg
Vitamin D 5 µg
Vitamin E 12 mg
Vitamin K 75 µg



Calcium 800 mg
Chloride 800 mg
Chromium 40 µg
Copper 1 mg
Flouride 3.5 mg
Iodine 150 µg
Iron 14 mg
Magnesium 375 mg
Manganese 2 mg
Molybdenum 50 µg
Phosphorous 700 mg
Potassium 2,000 mg
Selenium 55 µg
Zinc 10 mg
All others – RDA not established
The figures above show the quanities in micrograms or milligrams. Below is a conversion table:
µg = micrograms 1,000 µg = 1 mg
mg = milligrams 1,000 mg = 1 g
g = grams
