THERE ARE ONLY 4 MAMMAL SPECIES THAT DO NOT
SYNTHESIZE THEIR OWN
WE ARE ONE OF THEM
Are We Falling Apart?
In science there is a measurement called the JND, Just Noticeable Difference. In 1972, Irwin Stone’s The Healing Factor: Vitamin C Against Disease was published.
Among vitamin C proponents, subscurvy, the concept proposed by Stone in this book was a game-changer. Stone studied ascorbic acid for over 50 years. His research lead him to the conclusion that the entire human population suffers from a lack of vitamin C.
Stone’s theory rests on this incontrovertible fact: THERE ARE ONLY 4 MAMMAL SPECIES THAT DO NOT SYNTHESIZE THEIR OWN VITAMIN C. WE ARE ONE OF THEM.
The other three are fruit bats, rhesus monkeys, and guinea pigs.FN We humans are missing only one step in a process that allows other mammals to manufacture vitamin C internally from glucose (blood sugar). Without this step, our bodies are unable to produce it.
Stone has written that suboptimal amounts of vitamin C throughout life result in poor quality collagen. In turn, this leads to the physical breakdown many experience in their later years. The possible consequences include arthritis and joint diseases, broken hips, strokes, the many cardiovascular diseases, and possibly cancer.
