Quick Health Question: How do we acquire a vitamin C deficiency?

Answer 

  • smoking
  • physical or emotional stress
  • drinking alcohol
  • allergies
  • fever or viral illness
  • antibiotics, cortisone, aspirin or other pain medicines
  • exposure to toxic chemicals (e.g., DDT, petroleum products, carbon monoxide), environmental pollution or heavy metals (e.g., lead, mercury, cadmium)
  • If you suffer from recurrent infections
  • If you’re a woman who takes the birth-control pill
  • If you’re older than age 60

All these things can cause a vitamin C deficiency. So, if you are guilty of doing any of these things, make sure you stock up on berries, citrus fruits, and vegetables such as red peppers and tomatoes
