Back in 2006 when doing a weekly Radio show. It was my duty to weed out news items worthy enough to talk about while on the ‘air’ One such item that was good enough for several hours worth of radio time.
I came across an article online in the UK written by a Jeremy Laurance.
Health editor. The interest on this article was intense to say the least.
Today I dug it up and posted the article below.
As a side note to you. It should be noted that I went to the original web page where I found this fascinating article, looked up the history of the author and his postings. This original article can’t be found within the webpage. But enough of this, read below you decide.
Update September 20th 2010
Just this week end an important study was released and just as quickly it was buried. It was about the discovery of a cancer fighting ‘molecule 968’ that was found to starve cancer cells.
Research backs theory that vitamin C shrinks tumours
Published: 28 March 2006
New research suggesting that vitamin C can be effective in curing cancer will
renew interest in the “alternative” treatment for the terminal disease.
Three cancer patients who were given large intravenous doses over a period of
several months had their lives extended and their tumours shrunk, doctors
A 49-year-old man diagnosed with terminal bladder cancer in 1996 was still alive
and cancer-free nine years later, having declined chemotherapy and radiotherapy
in favour of regular infusions of vitamin C.
A 66-year-old woman with an aggressive lymphoma who had a “dismal prognosis” in
1995 was similarly treated and is still alive 10 years later.
A 51-year-old woman with kidney cancer that spread to her lungs diagnosed in 1995 had a normal
chest X-ray two years later. The findings were confirmed by pathologists.
Although they do not prove the vitamin cured the cancer they do increase the
“clinical plausibility” of the idea, the researchers say.
Vitamin C therapy was first promoted by Linus Pauling, the Nobel prize winner,
30 years ago. Dr Pauling’s claims sparked the continuing boom in sales of
vitamin C, but attempts to confirm his findings failed and high-dose vitamin C
became an “alternative” therapy.
The latest study, published in the Canadian Association’s Medical Journal, could
trigger renewed interest in Dr Pauling’s claims. Studies show that vitamin C is
toxic to some cancer cells but not to normal cells. The problem has been
delivering a high enough dose.
The researchers say attempts to replicate Dr Pauling’s work failed because they
used oral doses of the drug which is rapidly excreted. However, injections
achieve blood levels 25 times higher that persist for longer. At these very high
doses, the blood level of vitamin C is high enough to selectively kill cancer
Several clinical trials of vitamin C therapy are about to start, including one
at McGill University, Montreal, the authors say.
