"Nutrition experts contend that all we need is what's typically found in

Via Muse, who added "I mostly enjoyed this article because it is a piece
of history I actually participated in. I have an uncle who was a
research scientist at the University of Washington. My family were
visiting this uncle when he had a party at his home for Linus Pauling
who was guest lecturing at the UW. Pauling was going on about Vitamin C
and my uncle was subtly rolling his eyes. Some other researcher was
telling me about the Flat Earth Society and making me laugh."
