Survivalist Tip: Vitamin C is one of the best vitamins for normal physical growth and development. That, of course, leads to normal spiritual growth and development, which explains why a lot of Jews, Christians and Muslims are Vitamin C-deficient. Therefore, make certain you have a good supply of Vitamin C in your survival stockpile. The human body neither produces nor stores Vitamin C, so you’ll have to consume it through natural food sources, such as fruits and vegetables, or capsules. Vitamin C helps to heal from wounds and form scar tissue. It contains free radicals which can assist you in combating such things as tobacco smoke, radiation and stupidity. Radiation may be present when the axes shift, which will throw power plants off-line and upend garbage dumps. Stupidity, of course, is a perennial problem, so you have to be on guard for that regardless of what happens. But, with plentiful sources of Vitamin C in your arsenal, you can handle any dilemma.
