a few more words about Apple

It was a revelation to learn that all mothers -- breastfeeding or artificial feeding -- for the first half of the 20th century were told to supplement their babies with orange juice (for vitamin C) and cod liver oil (for vitamin D). The idea was to prevent scurvy and rickets, of course.

Which explains in part what the hell my mother may have been thinking, feeding me OJ at 6 weeks of age.
