    Very long, but a truly excellent essay. What I like so much about it is that unlike most ‘pop history of science’ articles, this one dispenses with the snarky tone that allows the reader to feel oh-so-much-smarter than their ancestors. Instead it takes the high road, making it clear exactly why it would have been difficult to discover the true cause of scurvy even for intelligent competent people.
