I know many people who take 2-3 grams of Vit C per day with no ill
effects.  After a few days to two weeks, you also decrease the amount
that you excrete ("excess C?").

Are people really taking 50,000 IU of Vitamin A?  I had always heard
it was toxic (I have never heard the same claim for C).  I had an
archaeology prof in my student days who told about almost dying from
eating polar bear liver (apparently one of the most concentrated source
of Vita A that naturally occurs) while in the Arctic.
