[quote:trailingedge:MV8yMTMxMzAzXzM1OTcxNDY1XzY5NDA2RTk2] .....The Entire Animal Kingdom Megadoses on Vitamin C Most animals make their own vitamin C, and a lot of it. Linus Pauling and other scientists have estimated this amount to be somewhere between 1,000 and 10,000 mg of vitamin C per human body weight equivalent per day. That means that cows and sows, horses and porpoises, whales and walruses, fleas and flies, worms and fish, dogs and cats, and rabbits and rats all make vitamin C every day. And, significantly, they make vitamin C for themselves in the range of ten to one hundred times more than the government tells us to take. [/quote]
