Summary and Conclusions

  • 1.  Low levels of plasma Vitamin C was an outstanding finding in a nutrition survey of a rural North Carolina community. This was correlated with a low intake of Vitamin C rich foods.
  • 2.  Striking gains in Vitamin C plasma levels occurred in a group of 34 children when given an adequate but low cost diet over a period of six weeks.
  • 3.  It is concluded that the low levels initially found in these children, and in the survey group, are not normal but represent the result of inadequate intake of Vitamin C over varying periods.
