3. Vit C is an antioxidant, having other health benefits.

Data supporting the claim that "anti-oxidants" have health benefits is very weak. Data is now emerging that suggests that oxygen and oxygen radicals have health benefits and depleting oxygen radicals is not good.

I give it 3 years for the FDA to nuke all those "anti-oxidant" health claims.

Baloney. Show me the reference. Vit C is used therapeutically to prevent some toxins from doing oxidative damage to RBCs.
