When Europeans first began to migrate to this country
many of them began to die from an illness known as scurvy
because they could not find a nutritional source of vitamin C,
when in reality such a resource was abundantly plenty.
By simply taking the needles from any pine tree
and boiling it in water, they could have brewed pine needle tea.
which is a great nutritional source of vitamin C
and in my opinion also is very tasty.
