During the first week of 2011 dozens of websites warned us all that the United States FDA was about to ban the use of intravenous Vitamin C.
Injectable Vitamin C Is a Potent Cancer FighterFor instance, one website warned:
"The FDA is now trying to outlaw an important medicinal form of vitamin C. It's almost as if they're declaring war on the American people's health and just trying to see how many people they can kill by depriving them of medicine that actually works to boost immune function, prevent colds and even fight cancer! "
Another website started its article with this frightening lead sentence:
"The FDA has just notified small pharmacies that they will no longer be allowed to manufacture or distribute injectable vitamin Câ€”despite its remarkable power to heal conditions that conventional medicine canâ€™t touch."
Many websites urged their readers to contact the FDA right away to save access to this cancer-fighting wonder. And it's absolutely true that injectable vitamin C is the most effective form of the nutrient for fighting cancer. Almost 40 years ago, Nobel Laureate Linus Pauling found that vitamin C was very effective in fighting cancer.
In the 1970's. Nobel laureate Linus Pauling conducted some very widely publicized studies of high-dose vitamin C as a method of extending the life of terminally ill cancer patients. In his study of 2000 people with terminal cancer, those who received 10 grams of vitamin C daily lived 5 to 20 times as long as those who did not. That is, most of the study volunteers taking vitamin C lived an average of 120 days, rather than 42 days, and 10 per cent of those taking vitamin C lived as long as 2-1/2 years. The vitamin C was administered by intravenous drip for the first 10 days and then the volunteers took it in tablet form.
This study did not find that vitamin C cured cancer. It did find that vitamin C extended the very end of life in almost all cases. Follow-up research, unfortunately, found no benefit in increasing the dose to more than 10 grams a day, nor did patients live as long as they did in Dr. Pauling's trial. But that was not the end of the story
