Do aminals generally suffer SIDS? One of the biggest genetic differences is that they make vitamin C - a lot of vitamin C in their livers (or kidneys) and humans don't. Adjusted for body weight, animals make 3000 to 13000 mg per day. We do not find it surprising that many have suggested, even proven, that the primary cause of SIDS is a vitamin C deficiency.
