Sir Sean,Brussel Sprouts, along with other members of the cabbage family, keep scurvy away. Cabbage family products were replaced in the British Navy By the use of Lime Juice. Kegs of it were necessary for any long voyage or the men cold die. Some historians give the Royal Navy Physician James Lind as much credit in creating the British Empire they as the East India Company or All of the Armies. He kept the Royal Navy sailing."Untreated scurvy is always fatal. However, since all that is required for a full recovery is the resumption of normal vitamin C intake, death from scurvy is rare in modern times."EAT YOUR SPROUTS, SPROUT I LOVE THEM - IN BUTTER, and I get to release flatus in public after I eat them.
