Bill Sardi: "This study may dispel a common belief that a low-dose multivitamin may be sufficient to address essential nutrient shortages."
Contrary to recent news, Vitamin C easily treats and prevents colds... ... when taken in the right amounts and frequency.
How Vitamin C Stops Cancer
A team of Johns Hopkins scientists have shown that in mice at least, vitamin C - and potentially other antioxidants - can indeed inhibit the growth of some tumorsThe Cancer Breakthrough Handbook on Vitamin C Therapy for Patients and Doctors by Steve Hickey and Hilary Roberts
"There was something odd about the results of the experiments Linus Pauling reported in the 1980s: patients lived longer - much longer. Those treated with vitamin C lived an average of four times as long as control patients who did not receive vitamin C. This massive improvement was unparalleled in the history of medicine"Clinical Data Shows Vitamin C Reduces Risks of Cancer, Heart Disease and Variety of Other Health Disorders...
Prof Mishra explained: .Basically, when heart patients opt for angioplasty or ballooning to remove blockages in arteries, the patients become vulnerable to a burst of oxygen consumption. The heart experiences a sudden rise of oxygen supply, which in turn triggers formation of toxins. Ultimately, the toxins have an adverse effect on heart that may lead to heart attack. But, in our clinical trails we have observed that the post-heart attack patients if administered Vitamins C and E can be protected from the burst of oxygen.. "
A new way of looking at scurvy we are not all alike and our requirements for vitamin C may differ...
In functional scale, the patients reported significantly higher scores for physical, role, emotional, and cognitive function after administration of vitamin C (p<0.05). In symptom scale, the patients reported significantly lower scores for fatigue, nausea/vomiting, pain, and appetite loss after administration of vitamin C (p<0.005). The other function and symptom scales were not significantly changed after administration of vitamin C. In terminal cancer patients, the quality of life is as important as cure. Although there is still controversy regarding anticancer effects of vitamin C, the use of vitamin C is considered a safe and effective therapy to improve the quality of life of terminal cancer patients.
Vitamin C reduces the formation of potentially carcinogenic nitrogen-containing compounds in the stomach, offering protection from stomach cancer, researchers have reported. - however, C taken with lipids may lower benefit..
"Dr. Kalokerinos thought differently. He pinpointed the increase in vaccination campaigns as the reason why, at a certain point, up to half of the vaccinated Aboriginal infants died, obviously from an acute vitamin C deficiency provoked by the vaccination."
Reduced plasma ascorbate levels are a hallmark of oxidative stress and occur in severe burns, sepsis, severe trauma, intoxication, chemotherapy/radiotherapy and organ transplantation. Vitamin C directly enhances the activity of nitric oxide synthase, the acyl CoA oxidase system and inhibits the actions of proinflammatory lipids. There is experimental evidence that parenteral high-dose vitamin C restores endothelial function in sepsis. In vitro, supraphysiological concentrations (> 1mM) of ascorbate restore nitric oxide bioavailability and endothelial function. Only parenterally, can enough vitamin C be administered to combat oxidative stress.
"The study confirms the hypocholesterolaemic effect of vitamin C and that Vitamin C has no adverse effect on serum electrolytes. It is suggested that its administration in moderate to high doses may protect against atherosclerosis and hypertension."
OUR NOTE: While it is true that these creatures make their own ascorbate, this experiment shows the effect of additional ascorbate on various cholesterol measures, and confirms the eariler Ginter work.
But when the researchers examined the blood levels of vitamin C they found a strong protective effect. That is: they found that those subjects with the highest level of vitamin C in their blood had a 60 percent lower risk of stomach cancer than those subjects with the lowest levels.

Dr. Levy is medical doctor and a cardiolgist by training. Some time ago, Dr. Levy analyzed all 27 known cardiovascular disease risk factors. Levy discovered that they all can be reduced to a single factor - low vitamin C.
Just released, the new Levy book surveys the massive scientific evidence connecting dietary vitamin C deficiency with the cause of the circulartory condition commonly called heart disease. The disease condition is characterized by atherosclerotic plaque build-ups in arteries leading to angina, heart attack and stroke.
The non profit Vitamin C Foundation approved powerhouse AscorbAde® All-In-One orthomolecular drink mix is now available. The new product provides far far more orthomolecular ingredients and in higher amounts than any other drink mix on the market.
It is expected that pleasant tasting AscorbAde will become an important tool for orthomolecular physicians and naturopaths because the drink mix replaces hundreds of pills per month, because it contains only premium ingredients, and because it contains no additives or fillers.
Proceeds will fund Vitamin C Foundation activities, web sites and research.
AscorbAde® is a registered trademark of the Vitamin C Foundation
Dr. Sydney Bush, a noted British optometrist, is the founder of this new medical field that analyzes the future health of the heart.
"We are looking into life's secrets,. Bush said. .When we look inside the eye . to call it a crystal ball of your future is an understatement."
In addition, Bush found that vitamin C can improve that future. With Cardioretinometry, doctors can actually track how much vitamin C diminishes the amount of cholesterol in the blood vessels.
Antioxidant vitamin therapy plus septic challenge prevented NF-kappaB activation, reduced mitochondrial cytochrome C release, decreased caspase activity, abrogated cardiomyocyte secretion of inflammatory cytokines, and improved myocardial contractile function. Conclusions: Antioxidant vitamin therapy abrogated myocardial inflammatory cytokine signaling and attenuated sepsis-related contractile dysfunction, suggesting that antioxidant vitamins therapy may be a potential approach to treat injury and disease states characterized by myocardial dysfunction.
Co-treatment of rats with VIT C and quercetin inhibited the induction of MNPCEs by MSG (P < 0.001). VIT E failed to protect against MSG-induced genotoxicity. The results indicate that dietary antioxidants have protective potential against oxidative stress induced by MSG and, in addition, suggest that active oxygen species may play an important role in its genotoxicity.
"Multivitamins are the safest things that anyone can take � and are even safer than drinking coffee, an expert panel has discovered. Its findings are revealed at a time when American regulators are taking the lead from their European counterparts and are seeking to control the supply of vitamins in the States. By comparison, the panel revealed that 784,000 Americans die each year from drug reactions. "
"A common molecular denominator in aging and many age-related diseases is oxidative stress."
"NIH documents show that the NIH panel never even looked at over 600 scientific studies and papers from the Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine, a journal that in fact specializes in publishing vitamin therapy research, and has done so for forty years. The NIH panel also failed to consider the wealth of physician reports in medical publications such as the Townsend Letter for Doctors and Patients."All Press Releases from the Orthomolecular News Service...

"Further, these experiments suggest that a combination of aspirin with ascorbic acid constitutes a novel approach to render COX-2 more sensitive to inhibition by aspirin, allowing an anti-inflammatory therapy with lower doses of aspirin, thereby avoiding the side effects of the usually high dose aspirin treatment.

"I conclude from this study that the prophylactic intake of ascorbic acid, the dose taken regularly to preserve good health and provide protection against disease, almost certainly should be more than 250 mg per day for most people.
"Other considerations led me to suggest the range 250 mg to 4000 mg, or even 10,000 mg for the recommended daily intake for most people." Page 133 HOW TO LIVE LONGER AND FEEL BETTER (Linus Pauling, 1986, Paperback)
