Vitamin C as a Safer Cancer Cure

Vitamin C Supplements The suffering and horrors associated with cancer is not due to just merely the disease itself. Chemotherapy pumps drugs into the body and leaves behind the side effects of general pain, nausea and vomiting, memory and hair loss and the depression of the immune system. Researchers at the National Institutes of Health published an alternative treatment
suggestion in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Through experimentation they came to find that the injecting of Vitamin C should be looked at as a possibility for cancer patients.

Although the idea of orally taking Vitamin C, or ascorbate to treat cancer was thrown out of the window about thirty years ago, Mark Levine, the chief of the Molecular and Clinical Nutrition Section of the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases and his team put a new spin on the old argument.  Since the body is able to regulate the amount of Vitamin C it gets when ingested, the researchers turned to injections.

Mice were injected with forty-three cancer lines and five normal cell lines.  Additionally they were given doses of Vitamin C injections.  While studying the cancer lines, it was discovered that there was an anti-cancer effect in seventy-five percent of them.  The normal cells were not affected negatively by the injections.  Those involved in the study found that “in immune-deficient mice with rapidly spreading ovarian, pancreatic, and glioblastoma (brain) tumors … the ascorbate injections reduced tumor growth and weight by 41 to 53 percent.”  Based on this study they say that there is solid evidence to believe that “these high ascorbate concentrations could be achieved in people.”

This idea was tested a few years back in a study published in the Canadian Association’s Medical Journal.  In it three cancer patients were given large doses of Vitamin C and all three benefited.  A man of forty-nine refused the traditional treatments of chemotherapy and radiology after being diagnosed with terminal bladder cancer in 1996.  Instead he opted for infusions of Vitamin C and was still alive and even cancer-free when the study was published in 2006.

Similarly, the other two participants were also successful in their alternative treatments.  A sixty-six-year-old woman was diagnosed with aggressive lymphoma in 1995.  Another woman of fifty-one was given the tragic news of kidney cancer that spread up to her lungs in 1995.  Both women are still alive, the latter having a clean X-ray only two years after her diagnosis.

These studies provide a strong plausibility for Vitamin C as a weapon against cancerous growths without any of the painful side effects found with chemotherapy.  With the desire of more studies to come out of this research there is hope it can be proven without a shadow of a doubt.
