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.
