Intravenous Vitamin C & Cancer

Despite the fact that 35 years have passed since Linus Pauling’s discovery, intravenous Vitamin C has been slow to be introduced into medicine.

In the 1980’s, a Mayo Clinic study discredited Vitamin C with the headline: “Vitamin C Does Not Work for Cancer”. You would’ve had to read the whole article to understand that they were giving Vitamin C by mouth only.

Intravenous Vitamin C reaches a 25 times higher level in the blood stream compared to taking it by mouth. Levels over 1000 (micromol/litre) kill cancer cells because the Vitamin C is gobbled up by rapidly multiplying cancer cells as if it were sugar. Inside the cancer cells Vitamin C is believed to turn into Hydrogen Peroxide. Peroxide does not harm normal cells which have a detoxifying enzyme called Katalase that renders peroxide harmless. Cancer cells do not have Katalase. By mouth, only levels of 200 (micromol/litre) can be reached even with the highest tolerable Vitamin C intake. Intravenously, levels of 10,000 (micromol/L) are easily reached.

In such high doses, Vitamin C does not act as an anti-oxidant, but rather as an oxidizer (killer) of cancer cells and viruses. Intravenous Vitamin C could be called a “Smart Bomb” delivery system. Cancer killing Hydrogen Peroxide is delivered to the tumor target cells only without “collateral damage” to the healthy cells.

Fortunately after decades of this information being suppressed, the Canadian Medical Association Journal (CMAJ) finally published these facts in March of 2006.
