The Negative Impact of Sugar on Vitamin C
Thanks Owen, exactly what I had suspected, one can also add alcohol to Dr. Ely's theory . The hit to the immune system by sugar is an added insult. See:

FYI - Dr. John Ely has a Glucose Antagonism Theory - that since both glucose and Ascorbate are drawn into cells by the same insulin-mediated pathway, that too much sugar can crowd out vitamin C. Dr. Ely says he warned Pauling about this in the 70s, and that trials that do not try to restrict sugar will not have "spectacular" effects.
Ely is just finishing a study where sugar was restricted in the subjects, and say the results are what he expected. He says the ascorbate effect is pronounced, timely, undeniable with sugar restrictions. This will be published in the near future - somewhere. The study of colds I believe.
But this is probably an important key for folks interested in maximizing their vitamin C intake - not just serum vitamin C, but maximizing uptake to cells - where it counts.

Democracy At Work? - PPM On Fluoride
Here is a commentary on the recent (Jan, 25th, 2011) Public Participation Meeting (PPM) on Fluoride in the City of London, Ontario. The meeting started with a strong pro fluoride stance form the City engineer. His lack of knowledge on chemistry of the toxic wastes used to fluoridate water could embarrass even a high school student never mind his own profession. He blatantly violated his "duty to public welfare" as... [read more]
