Chemist, author, and two-time Nobel Prize winner Linus Pauling is considered one of the most significant scientists in the 20th century. Not only is he famous for his work in molecular biology, his research findings on high doses of vitamin C continue to influence nutritional health therapies in modern medicine.

Pauling's research led to the founding of the Linus Pauling Institute in 1973, which focuses on "micronutrient research for optimal health." The institute continues to carry out Dr. Pauling's research on the "the role that vitamins and essential minerals (micronutrients) and chemicals from plants (phytochemicals) play in human aging, immune function, and chronic diseases, especially heart disease, cancer, and neurodegenerative diseases."

In addition to other health resources, the Linus Pauling Institute provides an extensive amount of information on the benefits of high doses of vitamin C. Included are topics on how vitamin C functions, its role in disease prevention and treatment, and safety recommendations.

Here are some noteworthy quotes from Pauling:

• "There are many fathers of molecular biology but if you were to name just one, I think it would have to be me." – 1986, at a celebration of his 85th birthday

• "My advice that you take larger amounts of C and other vitamins is predicated upon new and better understanding of the role of these nutrients — they are not drugs — in the chemical reactions of life." – Written in Pauling's book, "How to Live Longer and Feel Better"

• "People who take these vitamins and other orthomolecular substances in the optimum amounts can live 25 or 35 years longer than otherwise. More than that, they will be free of diseases. This optimum nutrition, with the orthomolecular substances, cuts down the probability of developing cancer, or heart disease or diabetes, or infectious diseases." – 1990, Academy of Achievement

• "Other people had been advocating vitamin C for controlling the common cold and cancer and other diseases back starting 50 years ago. I do feel satisfaction in thinking that I have been able to contribute to this, what I think is a great step forward in the control of disease and the decrease in the amount of suffering." – 1990, Academy of Achievement

• "I think that vitamin C is the most important in the sense that the value of increasing the intake of this vitamin beyond that supplied by an ordinary diet is greater than for the other vitamins, but the other vitamins are also important." – "How to Live Longer and Feel Better"

• "I believe that by improvement in nutrition, especially increased intake of vitamin C, and by other health practices it will be possible for people to remain in good health for 25 years longer than at present time." – Orthomolecular Enhancement of Human Development
