Vitamin deficiency we are all born with
I’ve admired Linus Pauling for years. In 1976, the Nobel Prize-winning chemist gave mega doses of vitamin C to 100 “untreatable” cancer patients. He then compared these so-called terminal patients to patients with the same kind of cancer who didn’t get vitamin C. The patients who received the traditional cancer treatment lived for an average of six months. Pauling’s patients lived — on average — for six years. You’d think that the medical community would have heralded Pauling’s research as a huge breakthrough in cancer treatment. But they didn’t. And they still ...
