Fruit is not the only source of Vitamin C. Most leafy greens -- the
fresher the better -- are loaded with it. Cabbage and its companions,
such as broccoli and bok choy, are high in Vitamin C. It is intersting,
also, that some of the best sources are also those no longer in use by
the general population. Chickweed, dandelion, and violet greens come to
mind. During our hunter/gatherer past, we would have relied more on these
greens, especially raw, as an important source of nourishment.

I also have problems with the line of thought that "We didn't need it, so
we lost it." Whatever happened to natural selection? It is, however, an
issue that has bothered me for quite some time, and I'm glad it has come
up for discussion on DARWIN-L.--
