i am posting this from the website above that owen linked to, so you know what the heck the link goes to
I dont think this is a good source of info
but, if you think about it, i mean really think about it, ya know, you can do whatever you want, I'm just saying to see to how many word fillers I can use before you just read below or close this thread.
Most doctors and patients are convinced cholesterol-lowering drugs (CLDs) prevent heart attack. I say, it ain’t so. So what may prove me right? And why is GAADD (Generalized Ascorbic Acid Deficiency Disease) so important?
Fact 1: Years ago I interviewed Dr. Linus Pauling, a two-time Nobel Prize winner. He explained that animals make their own vitamin C and rarely suffer a heart attack. For example, guinea pigs manufacture 13,000 milligrams of C daily
( no they dont!),
but if infection occurs these animals increase the amount to 100,000 mg daily! It indicates that nature provides vitamin C for health. Unfortunately, humans, due to a genetic quirk, lost the ability to manufacture vitamin C eons ago. Now, heart attack is our great killer.
Fact 2: Pauling reported that just 60 mg. of vitamin C is proven to prevent scurvy. We can obtain this amount by eating just one-sixth of an orange. But Pauling added a fact I had not been taught at The Harvard Medical School, that it requires several thousand milligrams of C to prevent heart attack!
Fact 3: I suffered a severe heart attack at age 74. After much thought I decided to take 10,000 mg of vitamin C daily, rather than CLDs. At 93 I’m still alive! I admit this one fact is not good scientific evidence. Maybe I was just lucky to inherit good genes. My mother lived to 94.
Fact 4: The best proof that high C works is Dr. Sydney Bush’s research. He proved that taking 6,000 mg of C daily reversed atherosclerosis in arteries. His monumental discovery is sadly collecting dust. See the dramatic before and after photos on my website, docgiff.com.
