- Recall how hydrogen peroxide is poured on wounds to kill
germs. Well now researchers clearly show high-dose vitamin C, when administered
intravenously, can increase hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) levels within cancer
cells and kills them. I.V. vitamin C was also demonstrated to kill germs
and may be an effective therapy for infectious disease.
- With a growing body of evidence mounting, National Institutes
of Health (NIH) researchers conceded today that intravenous vitamin C may
be an effective treatment for cancer. Last year the same researchers reported
a similar study but the news media failed to publish it.
- The latest study, published in the Proceedings of the
National Academy of Sciences, confirms the work of Nobel-Prize winner Dr.
Linus Pauling who conducted cancer research in the 1970s with vitamin C.
Dr. Pauling's studies were discredited at the time by poorly conducted
research studies at the Mayo Clinic.
- Unlike cancer drugs, I.V. vitamin C selectively killed
cancer cells, but not healthy cells, and showed no toxicity. The ability
of intravenous vitamin C to kill lymphoma cells was remarkable almost
100% at easily achievable blood serum concentrations.
- For inexplicable reasons, NIH researchers continue to
maintain high-dose oral vitamin C can produce a limited increase in serum
vitamin C concentrations. However, their earlier study published in 2004
clearly showed oral-dose vitamin C can achieve three times greater blood
concentration than previously thought possible, a fact which negates the
current Recommended Dietary Allowance for vitamin C. [Annals Internal
Medicine 140:5337, 2004] NIH researchers refuse to issue a retraction of
their earlier flawed research which mistakenly claimed humans cannot benefit
from high-dose oral vitamin C supplements.
- The NIH also offered no explanation why it has taken
35 years to confirm the work of Dr. Linus Pauling.
