i did not say pauling was a dumbass, nor did i mention his name. sounds to me like you are naive and hardheaded. you go on take huge doses of vitamin c. i suspect you have been doing this anyway previously to no avail and this is why you are complaining about it stating that you have squeaky teeth and bruising easily. the only reason i say bruising might be hereditary and/or anemic is because it is what i found in my research of the topic. all i ask of you is to keep us all posted on your condition in a few months. i'm sure you will see that it was not necessary to take huge amts of it or anything.
