How did Eskimos get their vitamins? Specifically, the most common source of Vitamin C is citrus fruits…I know there must be others, but what did Eskimos eat in order to get the stuff? Also, isn’t Vitamin D mainly generated by sunlight reacting with the body? How did the Eskimos keep up Vitamin D levels during a several-month-long winter? (or does the human body keep high enough levels that people can last several months without additional Vitamin D?)

“Sherlock Holmes once said that once you have eliminated the
impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be
the answer. I, however, do not like to eliminate the impossible.
The impossible often has a kind of integrity to it that the merely improbable lacks.”
