Q: I have a friend who is battling cancer. She asked her doctor about using vitamin C treatments, and he said that was all disproven back in the 1970s. Is that true? Do you know what he’s talking about?

GR: Back in 1976, Linus Pauling published a paper proving that high doses of vitamin C can dramatically extend survival times for cancer patients.

This should have set the entire cancer treatment industry on its ear. Pauling was no quack – he won the Nobel Prize TWICE!

But Big Pharma and the mainstream medical establishment attacked him with a vengeance.

They tried to discredit his study. They were out to get Pauling and preserve the cancer treatment industry’s profits – and they weren’t above bending the rules to do it.

So, they ran copycat studies that they’d designed to fail by not using enough vitamin C… or using the wrong kind… or combining it with other drugs that could negate its effects.

Anyone who thinks that Pauling was actually disproven 40 years ago is sadly misinformed! Because subsequent science has proven that Pauling was right all along.

High doses of intravenous vitamin C (IVC) kill cancer cells without harming healthy tissue. That’s because, in high enough doses, vitamin C is broken down into hydrogen peroxide, which is toxic to cancer cells… but not to healthy cells.

Just last year, the University of Iowa put out a study called, “Why high-dose vitamin C kills cancer cells.” That’s the exact OPPOSITE of what Pauling’s critics were claiming in the 1970s and 1980s.

The National Institutes of Health have conducted successful studies on using IVC to treat cancer. And the University of Kansas Medical Center even publishes an IVC protocol that cancer doctors can use.

I’ve been using IVC to treat cancer patients at my own clinic for years. I’ve personally seen it save lives.

Deciding on the right cancer treatment is a deeply personal choice. But it’s important to always consider all of the available options.

And IVC is absolutely a viable and scientifically backed cancer therapy.
