Researchers published a study on the effects of high-dose intravenous vitamin C therapy on ovarian cancer in the January 2014 issue of Science Translational Medicine. They examined seven human ovarian cancer cell lines and found that all of them were susceptible to vitamin C at levels easily achieved with IV therapy.
The authors found that vitamin C damaged the DNA of the cancer cells. In addition, they reported that when chemotherapy agents were added alongside vitamin C, there was even more damage to the cancer cells’ DNA.
Holistic doctors have known about the benefits of vitamin C in treating cancer for many years. In fact, vitamin C was proposed as an anticancer agent more than 50 years ago.
However, conventional medicine refused to recognize the effects of vitamin C, and derided those who promoted it. I have been criticized by oncologists for telling my patients that they need to take nutritional support when they are undergoing chemotherapy or fighting cancer.
This study is proof of that concept. It is a disgrace that oncologists are knowledgeable about poisons that have little effect on cancer outcomes, but have zero knowledge (and much opposition) to using natural substances to enhance the body’s ability to fight off and prevent cancer.
