Vitamin C keeps cancer at bay, US research suggests

 

 

High-dose vitamin C can boost the cancer-killing effect of chemotherapy in the lab and mice, research suggests.

Reporting in Science Translational Medicine, they call for large-scale government clinical trials.

Pharmaceutical companies are unlikely to run trials, as vitamins cannot be patented.

Just remember, it's for intravenous vitamin C in conjunction with chemotherapy.

It isn't that lots of vitamin C will cure cancer, and research has already shown that taking tablets don't have the same effect.

 

I'll wait for more research before shooting up!
