Letter Re: Avoiding Vitamin Deficiency Illnesses in Societal Collapse

Dear James Wesley,
In regard to intake of Vitamin C, many people overlook sweet and hot peppers [as natural sources]. Red sweet peppers have the highest amount of C that is found in vegetable versus citrus fruit. Red peppers have more than green peppers. It seems that freeze drying or dehydrating does not substantially degrade the level of C in the vegetables.  Other good sources in vegetables are broccoli, Brussels sprouts, tomatoes, dark leafy greens and cabbage and sauerkraut. The last two vegetables were very important to Northern European people who had no easy access to citrus fruits. I’m talking 15 to 17th centuries.
Thank you once again for a wonderful and informative blog. I’m looking forward to your new book! – OkieRanchWife
