The above is a rather minor "hit piece" but we know that ABC is planning a major hit piece based on their contacting us about the FDA warning letter.

The real take-away? Her friend drank, smoked, and was highly stressed, but at 74 is very healthy. Oh, and she faithfully took vitamins every day.

Popular supplements and remedies such as vitamin C, selenium, and acai berries had no evidence to support the idea that they could treat cancer.

That article reads like it was written by a random word generator! No good information and not worth wading through.

Taking massive doses of vitamin C to protect against viruses and diseases may actually have harmful effects.


http://www.ajpb.com/news/what-you-think-you-know-about-vitamin-c-and-the-common-cold-is-wrong


So who started the myths about vitamin C?
Known as “The Vitamin C Man,” Linus Pauling was the most famous forerunner of using high doses of vitamin C as a treatment for colds and other diseases, including cancer.


I wish there was a way to respond to this article. I always love to post this study
:-)

Research

The effectiveness of vitamin C in preventing and relieving the symptoms of virus-induced respiratory infections.

RESULTS: Overall, reported flu and cold symptoms in the test group decreased 85% compared with the control group after the administration of megadose Vitamin C. CONCLUSION: Vitamin C in megadoses administered before or after the appearance of cold and flu symptoms relieved and prevented the symptoms in the test population compared with the control group.

Another condescending article written as though it were for children. Once your eyes have been opened to truth there is no going back.

http://www.thisisinsider.com/things-that-could-make-a-cold-worse-2017-10

For forum readers, there IS a cure for the common cold, but for some reason our government and health authorities don't want people to know. However, since it is available without prescription, anyone can try it and see for themselves.

A cure for the common cold is to take 8000 mg of ascorbic acid by mouth, every 20 minutes, for two hours immediately after the onset.

For me, the onset is usually a clear watery like nasal discharge.

Once the cold takes hold, if you miss the onset, the cold's severity and duration can be reduced, but it cannot be stopped.

As far as the rationale. Our own research, as we kept track of at this forum, showed the ascorbic acid (ultrafine) and only ascorbic acid by mouth at 10 grams produced higher blood levels (around minute 3) than the corresponding baseline IV/C. Its a quick, surprising effect, and explains why we need to continue every 20 minutes.

http://wgnradio.com/2017/12/01/consumer-reports-deputy-content-editor-lisa-gill-get-your-vitamin-c-from-food/

Linus Pauling was verbally fighting with Consumer Reports back in the 1970s! Not sure what the angle is or why they are always on the other side? From what we think we know now, if you are a cancer patient getting your vitamin C only from food - you risk proliferation of cancer stem cells. So this advice could be lethal. On the other hand, there is no evidence that our high dose advice causes any harm to anyone.
