Long journeys in ships were dangerous and many sailors died. There were many dangers. Disease was one of the common dangers. A common disease was scurvy. Many sailors died of it. In 1768, Captain Cook did something very strange. He took some barrels of lemons with him on his journey to Australia. On that journey the sailors did not die of scurvy. No one knew why, but now we do. It is because lemons contain vitamin C. Vitamin C prevents scurvy. Good food contains vitamins and vitamins prevent disease. We know that carrots and green vegetables contain vitamin A and C. Mola fish also contains vitamin A. Vitamin A is good for your eye sight. There are five vitamins A, B, C, D and E. Some food contains a lot of vitamins. Other food doesn’t.
