Vitamin C Injection May Treat Cancer
Aug 06, 2008
New study shows that vitamin C injections have the potential to treat cancer, by reducing the size of a tumor.
The researchers who conducted the new study on mice discovered an unexpected effect of vitamin C, promising its use as a drug for cancer treatment.
Dr. Mark Levine,a co-author of the study and chief of the U.S. National Institutes of Health's Molecular and Clinical Nutrition Section said that the findings are to be confirmed in humans. Scientists also need further research to find out against what type of cancer this might be effective.
Vitamin C is known to be a highly effective antioxidant
that is used in treatment of such conditions as cold and heart disease. Now this vitamin shows promise for fighting cancer
Researchers used intravenous doses of vitamin C in the study to increase the level of vitamin C. The injection can evade the digestive system blockage that allows only certain amount of this vitamin. The injections of vitamin C produced hydrogen peroxide, which led to reduction of tumors in the mice by 43 to 51 percent
. The mice used in the study had ovarian, pancreatic and brain cancer.
It is still unknown why certain types of cancer are immune to treatment and normal cells remain safe during therapy, scientists say.
However, it is too soon to say that vitamin C injections will work even if the findings show their effectiveness on humans. The vitamin C is likely to be used as a part of the treatment of cancer if the further research will be proven.
The study appeared in the August issue of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences

I don't see how injecting yourself with vitamins could be illegal. I inject myself with B12 every ten days.
It's a pity this article doesn't state the quantity of vitamin C required. I should think it's about 6 grms. per day.
Vitamin C has never killed anyone, nor caused bad side effects.

I've had a mesothelioma patient that I worked with who called the facility and they referred her to a physician in her area who performed the injections. Give it a try.

Hi you can get vitamin c injections in spain and germany for sure ...I have seen it first hand but you have to get in touch with a Biologist for this and do a treatment which can be up tp three months and also involves a strict diet and a lot of comitment... some countries dont allow vitamin c through there borders so you may have to travel which becomes very expensive but what price do you put on your life.!!!!!!!!!!!

My mother was diagnosed with a grade-IV glioblastoma and underwent a complete resection (August 22nd). She is 74 and has not yet recovered enough (not physically very strong) to begin radiation treatment and chemo is not recommended for her 'age group'. My brother and I are looking to find a doctor in Montreal who would provide these injections. We would greatly appreciate and help you could provide.

Hi, my grandpa is sick in the hospital with Prostate Cancer. His PSA levels have not changed and his heart is healthy, but he has absolutely no strength. He is bedridden and depressed. We are looking to the Vitamin C injection as a last resort before he goes into a nursing home, but we can't find a doctor to do it. Does anyone know where this is done in the U.S.? thank you so much for your help!
