Vitamin C Cancer Cure
VITAMIN C CANCER CURE
…and another thing
What does an acutely hospitalized patient need?
He probably needs vitamin C.
Researchers at Canada’s McGill University gave acute-care patients either vitamin C (one gram daily) or vitamin D (2,000 IU daily). After seven-to-ten days, patients in the C group improved their mood response scores by nearly 35 percent.
There was no change in mood scores in the D group.
Lead researcher, Dr. John Hoffer, told NutraIngredients-USA that about 20 percent of all acute-care patients at his hospital in Montreal have “vitamin C levels so low as to be compatible with scurvy.”
He added, “Patients are rarely given vitamin supplements. Most physicians are simply unaware of the problem.”
But when physicians read about this trial, I hope they won’t discount vitamin D as a useful tool to improve mood. In fact, I wondered why D had no effect here, until I spotted the short intervention period.
When I checked this with Dr. Allan Spreen, he confirmed my suspicion: Vitamin C is a water soluble vitamin–quickly absorbed and expelled by the body.
Dr. Spreen: “I’d say the fact that D is fat-soluble would strongly suggest that a longer time period would be necessary for a fair test.”
Hospital personnel, please note: For acute-care patients, by all means, bring the C. But don’t forget the D.
