Let's talk about it ! (36)


Let's talk about vitamins again.

In 1920, vitamin C (Ascorbic acid) was found in citrus fruits.  That same year vitamin D (Calciferol) was discovered.  Vitamin D comes from cod liver oil.

In 1922, vitamin E made its debut, found in wheat germ oil.  Tocopherol is another name for vitamin E.  Here are just some examples.

One important fact to remember is that the value of eating certain foods to maintain health was recognized by people long before vitamins were identified.

Japanese food is healthy food.  Perhaps this is why Japanese people have the longest life span !  Do you take enough vitamins every day ?                            (V.C)
