Vitamin C is probably the most discussed and most controversial of all vitamins. According to some authorities we need only 70-90 mgs/day (that’s the RDA) and that the upper safe limit is 500, and some say 2,000 mgs is maximum. On the other hand, some independent nutritionists say that most people should get AT LEAST 3,000 mgs/day of vitamin C, and for optimal health often 10,000 mgs/day is recommended, or more (i.e.: take to “bowel tolerance”).
People with cardiovascular disease (CVD) or diabetes (which is often a precursor of CVD) MUST take vitamin C in significant amounts in order to have a chance to become well.
EAT 2 OR 3 EGGS PER DAY, boiled-one-minute or poached, not fried. Should be organic cage-free. Yoke more important than the whites for nutrients.

Over 50 years ago a scientist named Ancel Keys did a study that indicated saturated fats to be a major contributing factor in heart disease! Unfortunately he dishonestly rigged the study, but he was so influential that the government adopted his low-fat dietary recommendations on a national level!
