Vitamin C Deficiency Leading to Hemodynamically Significant Bleeding
A middle-aged man who was admitted to the hospital several times for hypotension, recurring lower extremity ecchymoses, and persistent anemia is presented, highlighting the potential damage of vitamin C deficiency in the industrialized world.
Versions of Milk and Versions of Care: The Emergence of Mother's Milk as an Interested Object and Medicine as a Form of Dispassionate Care
How a re-naturalization of mother's milk emerged within experimental medicine is explored, demonstrating how the natural developed within a relational space of different versions of milk: the free-market milk, the dirty and decaying milk, and the non-nutritional milk.
The understanding of scurvy during the heroic age of Antarctic exploration
The knowledge that scurvy was caused by a vitamin deficiency took time to be universally accepted and was generally accepted by about 1920, although some people did not accept it until vitamin C has been isolated in 1932.
Putting Prices on the Plate: The Industrial Revolution and its Impact on Traditional Cuisine in Three European Regions
Food traditions have been surveyed by many social scientists, but rarely from a purely economic viewpoint. This paper aims at introducing the economic logic of relative scarcities to the food table
‘Polar anaemia’: cardiac failure during the heroic age of Antarctic exploration.
The disease was very similar (and probably identical) to a disease affecting (mostly) Scandinavian seamen and called ‘ship beri-beri’ and how it was considered and treated at the time is described.
