Vitamin C and the Common Cold


I felt better when I woke up this morning, so I went to work. It was pretty slow anyway and they let us go home 2 hours early. I have taken one 500 mg tablet of Vitamin C every day for years. My colds are usually mild and take their course over a shorter today. In the 1980s I read the book Vitamin C and the Common Cold by Linus Pauling. He took several grams of it every day and lived to over 90. Dr. Pauling has the distinction of winning the Nobel Prize twice, for chemistry and for peace.

Bruce, do you remember back in the day...when one was sick, we would stay home and watch cartoons?

Back then, Looney Tunes and Merry Melodies were the best of the best!

I don't think cartoons are even shown on the major networks any longer.
