In 1747 Dr. James Lind, a Scottish surgeon who sailed with the Royal Navy, became the first to prove the efficacy of citrus juice in combating the disease scurvy. Yet he was unable to penetrate the high-minded disregard of those in authority, or to persuade them to enforce the universal consumption of fruit. Thousands needlessly died and it was 1795 before the findings were accepted.
