Hungarian Nobel Prize Winners – ALBERT SZENT-GYÖRGYI
The Discovery of Vitamin C
In these very strange times, our well-being is more important than ever, for which a balanced diet, fitness and healthy lifestyle are all key elements. The importance of vitamins in our health has long been well-known, but it wasn’t until the 1930s that Hungarian scientist, Albert Szent-Györgyi discovered the chemical ascorbic acid—also known as vitamin C. His discovery has become the foundations of modern nutrition for which he received the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine.Born to a family of scientists of three generations, Szent-Györgyi was naturally interested in science from an early age. He enrolled at the University of Budapest (today it is called Eötvös Lóránd Science University or ELTE) but his studies were interrupted by World War I. Anti-war throughout his life, Szent-Györgyi shot his own arm to escape combat and returned to the university where he received a medical degree.http://studyinhungary.hu/blog/hungarian-nobel-prize-winners-albert-szent-gyorgyi?s=2
Some quotations of Albert Szentgyörgyi have a very wise meaning or message.Here are two of them:
-The key to happiness is not to get more, but to enjoy what we have and to fill the empty frame of our lives instead of enlarging it.
-A vitamin is a substance that makes you ill if you don’t eat it.
This is such interesting work…and especially relevant in these strange times. Is it possible for the wellbeing sheet on orange and the vitamin C one to be sent to me by scanning and email as its possible one or both could be used in the journal. No hurry just when you get a chance .Thanks so much
