Overview

The relationship between vitamin C and health is controversial. Double Nobel Prize winner, Linus Pauling, argued that ascorbate could prevent or cure heart disease, stroke, cancer and infections. Conventional experts disagreed, disparaging supplements in favour of fruits and vegetables. This book presents a new model, describing the action of vitamin C in health and disease. It demonstrates conclusively that the establishment has misinterpreted the evidence, potentially resulting in epidemic levels of avoidable disease. The dynamic flow model explains the current results and points the way for future experiments. Vitamin C supplementation could eradicate many diseases. In pharmacological doses, it could cure the major killers of the industrialised world. Failure to test these ideas may condemn countless people to chronic illness and premature death.

Linus Pauling and these guys are right. Vitamin C and vitamin D are two supplements we should be taking a lot of -- at least 10x more than the RDA.

I have read this latest book and the time has come to vindicate Prof Linus Pauling,this year will be the tenth anniversary of his death.(19thAugust1994) I rather believe in Prof Pauling's work because he is a true scientist,doctors are not scientists!

This book de-constructs all the myths surrounding the use of Vitamin C. Popular medical opinion has treated the use of Vitamin C as, at best useless in the prevention and cure of disease and even dangerous. The people who are concerned with damaging the reputation of vitamin C are possibly the same people who advocate the use of expensive drugs sold by big multi-national drug companies. Is this a coincidence? 'Ascorbate' recommends the widespread use of Vitamin C could cut the UK health service budget in half. 'Ascorbate' is well written, insightful and at the forefront of groundbreaking scientific literature.
