High-dose Vitamin C has been an ongoing study for years with regards to its effect on cancer cells. Studies have shown that, high doses of vitamin C tends to slow down the metastasis of the cancerous cells as well as reduce the growth of cancer — this was especially seen in cases where pancreatic, colon, liver, and prostate cancer were studied.
In the late 1970s, Dr. Ewan Cameron, a Scottish Surgeon, and Linus Pauling, a world renowned chemist, conducted a clinical study which consisted of 100 patient with terminal cancer. These patients circumstances and survival rates were compared to 1000 retrospective control patients who were matched by the same type of cancer, stage & demographics, however, they were not treated with vitamin C IV therapy. The study concluded that, the patients who were given this therapy, demonstrated an improved quality of life and betterment in the overall functionality of the body. The side effects of chemotherapy, such as vomiting, nausea, pain and fatigue were also discovered to be much less compared to people who did not get the therapy.
