done any studies and looked at the types of microbes that are in the GI tract, the possibility of infection (subclinical infections) that occur in long-distance runners? Has anyone ever done that type of work?
PARTICIPANT: If anything, there was one paper that suggested that too much vitamin C might contribute to some of the lesions that have been observed in the GI tract in athletes.
PARTICIPANT: You would have to take in a large amount, wouldn't you?
DR. EVANS: With some athletes, apparently they do take in quite a bit.
DR. NESHEIM: Thank you very much for your interesting comments.

As of 2013, the National Science Education Standards have been replaced by the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), available as a print book, free PDF download, and online with our OpenBook platform.
The NGSS offer a detailed description of the key scientific ideas and practices that all students should learn by the time they graduate from high school. The standards are based largely on the 2011 National Research Council report A Framework for K-12 Science Education: Practices, Crosscutting Concepts, and Core Ideas.
