<< Hello, I am a registered dietitian working as a nutrition researcher. I

would like to thank Dr. Bonnie MacEvoy for spending the time to respond

to Ambros Prechtl's claims regarding 'Mega Dose Vitamin C'. There is much

misinformation floating around on the net regarding nutrition and health,

that the task of explaining the facts can be overwhelming. I appreciate

your discussion and completely agree with you.



I to enjoyed Dr. Mac Evoy's information but have to side somewhat with Dr.

Prechtl, having studied the overwhelming evidence for the benefits of more

vitamin C in the typical American diet. There is a lot of bias against

supplements due to some members of the Pharmaceutical firms who want to

optimize drug profits.


Those interested in numerous references on nutrition/natural treatments may

be interested in my DOS hypertext (~ 800 pages, "Optimize Health, Longevity &

IQ"), which is available free for downloading via my web site at
