- ALBERT SZENT-GYORGYI: Soon I found that there was in oranges a funny substance in my experiments. And what the chemists always
do is to isolate it, to get it out in pure condition. Then we can do something with it. So I got it out in pure condition
and once you have it pure you can do all sorts of funny things with it. And the one thing was to give it to guinea pigs, which
showed that this was the vitamin C for which mankind was looking already for 200 years.
