smokers require at least twice as much vitamin C as do nonsmokers

Food and Nutrition Board acknowledges that smokers require at least twice as much vitamin C as do nonsmokers; but what about other nutrients and smoking? And what about the effects of alcohol consumption, food additives, heavy metals (lead, mercury, etcetera.), carbon monoxide, and other chemicals associated with our modern society that are known to interfere with nutrient function? Dealing with hazards of modern living may be another reason why many people take supplements.
