for the record, I just tried to post this at Natural News
Mixing some fact with a lot of fiction hurts the credibility of both Mr. Adams and Natural News. While most vitamin C is manufactured in China, and for all we know, is made from GMO corn, that does not justify the inaccurate statements about ascorbic acid! Ascorbic Acid is vitamin C, and there is no stronger "fact" in science. In my opinion, scaring readers away from vitamin C - ascorbic acid - does a disservice to humanity. For those readers now confused, the best way back to reality is Linus Pauling's 1986 book How To Live Longer and Feel Better which clearly explains what vitamin C is - by definition that substance which cures scurvy.
