Did you know the term "red neck" comes from a vitamin deficiency?

NaturalNews Insider Alert ( newsletter

Dear NaturalNews readers,


Did you know that the term "red neck" comes from a vitamin B deficiency that causes susceptibility to sunburn? Hilariously, given that most Americans are chronically deficient in their B vitamins today (which is why people are so easily sunburned, by the way), it is technically true that most Americans are Red Necks! (Don't laugh: So are most Canadians and Europeans, also...)


Being a Red Neck is curable, of course. Just take high-quality vitamin B supplements or eat more superfoods rich in the natural vitamin. Sunburn risk plummets, heart health improves and everything just works better when you have sufficient levels of the B vitamins in your body.


Today's feature story brings you more examples of vitamin deficiencies throughout history, including the history of scurvy and vitamin C (see below).


Last Thursday, we pre-announced Health Book Summaries, which brings you no-cost summaries of the top books on health, food, nutrition and green living. The response has been phenomenal! Over 10,000 people have already registered, and we've even got top publishers calling us and asking if we'll write summaries of their bestselling books!  Click here to receive our Health Book Summaries at no charge as we announce them (if you haven't already).
