<< 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
