> sheath - the fatty sheath of tissue, which insulates the nerve fibers
> Deficiency of vitamin C
> When there is a shortage of VITAMIN C, various problems can arise,
> scurvy is the only disease clinically treated with vitamin C.

> Deficiency of calcium
> Prolonged bone re-absorption from chronic dietary deficiency results
> osteoporosis - from either too little bone mass accumulation during
