Intravenous Vitamin C Kills Cancer Cells
by Bill Sardi
Recall how hydrogen peroxide is poured on wounds to
kill germs. Well now researchers clearly show
high-dose vitamin C, when administered intravenously,
can increase hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) levels within
cancer cells and kills them. I.V. vitamin C was also
demonstrated to kill germs and may be an effective
therapy for infectious disease.
With a growing body of evidence mounting, National
Institutes of Health (NIH) researchers conceded today
that intravenous vitamin C may be an effective
treatment for cancer. Last year the same researchers
reported a similar study but the news media failed to
The latest study, published in the Proceedings of the
National Academy of Sciences, confirms the work of
Nobel-Prize winner Dr. Linus Pauling who conducted
cancer research in the 1970s with vitamin C. Dr.
Pauling's studies were discredited at the time by
poorly conducted research studies at the Mayo Clinic.
Unlike cancer drugs, I.V. vitamin C selectively killed
cancer cells, but not healthy cells, and showed no
toxicity. The ability of intravenous vitamin C to
kill lymphoma cells was remarkable – almost 100% at
easily achievable blood serum concentrations.
For inexplicable reasons, NIH researchers continue to
maintain high-dose oral vitamin C can produce a
limited increase in serum vitamin C concentrations.
However, their earlier study published in 2004 clearly
showed oral-dose vitamin C can achieve three times
greater blood concentration than previously thought
possible, a fact which negates the current Recommended
Dietary Allowance for vitamin C. [Annals Internal
Medicine 140:533–7, 2004] NIH researchers refuse to
issue a retraction of their earlier flawed research
which mistakenly claimed humans cannot benefit from
high-dose oral vitamin C supplements.
The NIH also offered no explanation why it has taken
35 years to confirm the work of Dr. Linus Pauling.

"Good intentions will always be pleaded for every assumption of authority.
It is hardly too strong to say that the Constitution was made to guard the
people against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who
mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good
masters, but they mean to be masters." -- Daniel Webster
