My local Kroger store (a large one) has a "bulk foods" section with a great
variety of dried fruit including cranberry raisins (delicious!), dried
apricots which don't taste like sulfur dioxide, and several varieties of
gorp which I like to mix.

NPR (National Propaganda Radio) said yesterday that the gov't recommended
daily dosage of vitamin C is enough to prevent scurvy but that recent
research suggests that up to 200mg/day is beneficial.  Too much can damage
liver and kidneys.
