@8:03 Slightly misleading... the first British randomised trial on this was not until the 18th century. The citrus-scurvy relationship was well established in the 16th century! Wikipedia actually has lots of detail on this... I guess there was a slightly different fleet dominating the seas back then with lots of lemons on board :)

If vikings were very pale and adapted to weak sunlight, why the need to compensate?

you seem to be conflating 'Norse' with 'vikings' but I forgive you.

So before the scientific method, we just relied on natural selection.

"Bob is dead." "Yup." "Seems to have eaten those berries here." "Yup." "Maybe should tell the others not to eat them." "Yup."

The lessons taken from this in your conclusion are great. the kind of nuance more people need to hear and comprehend to have a more reasonable perspective on "alt meds" and other tradition-based proscriptions.

The way he pronounced “Lofoten” made me smile
It’s funny listening to people trying to pronounce our Norwegian places!
Especially Stavanger, Trondheim or Tromsø😂❤️ (for me at least🤣🤣)

yeah, ending scurvy sure is why Britain enslaved and colonized the world...I got what you were going for, but sounded really weird. And actually is just what the european "progress" ideology wants us to think

I live in north Scotland and NHS told me I don't need any cod oil or vitamin D. Who is wrong?

There is no citrus in Scandanvia. You need to explain why vikings did not die from scurvy which will kill you faster as an adult then rickets. Polar explorers had huge casualties in only a few months when they tried to pass a winter on carbs and boiled meat. The obvious answer is that Vikings were a low carb society. If your grains are close to zero you can get enough vitamin c from animal foods to avoid scurvy.

Heads up, viking was an occupation (pirate), not a culture.
