Nobel Prizes For The Health Importance Of VitaminsJune 18, 2020
In their efforts to manipulate public opinion in the area of health, so-called ‘experts’ are frequently seen in the mainstream media claiming that high doses of vitamin C are dangerous and simply result in ‘expensive urine’. As Dr. Rath pointed out in his recent Open Letter, however, such ‘experts’ are almost invariably stakeholders of the pharmaceutical investment business. With doctors in China having recently reported the successful treatment of coronavirus patients with high-dose vitamin C, the efforts of pharmaceutical stakeholders to discredit it as a treatment are becoming increasingly apparent. In this situation, it is worth recalling what Nobel prize-winning scientists Linus Pauling and Albert Szent-György said about high-dose vitamin C.
Claim that high-dose vitamin C results in ‘expensive urine’ proved false half a century ago
In the early 1970s, two-time Nobel prize-winning scientist Linus Pauling (1901-1994) famously tested the claim that high doses of vitamin C supposedly result in ‘expensive urine’. While taking a dose of 10 grams of vitamin C per day, Pauling collected his urine over a period of 24 hours. Analyzing it afterwards, he found that he was only eliminating 1.5 grams of the nutrient in his urine, an amount equivalent to just 15 percent of his total daily intake. Most the vitamin C, he discovered, was being converted in his body into other useful substances.
Here’s the story, in Linus Pauling’s own words:
RECOMMENDATION: Next time somebody tells you that taking large doses of vitamin C simply results in ‘expensive urine’, you should inform them that a two-time Nobel prize-winning scientist tested this theory half a century ago and proved it to be false.
Scientist who discovered vitamin C said people can take ANY amount without the least danger
In 1937, the Nobel Prize for Medicine was awarded to the Hungarian scientist Albert Szent-György (1893-1986), for his work in isolating vitamin C and identifying its chemical structure. In 1970, in a letter to Linus Pauling, an extract from which was later published in one of Pauling’s books, Szent-György stated the following:
“Right from the beginning, I felt that the medical profession misled the public. If you don’t take ascorbic acid [vitamin C] with your food you get scurvy, so the medical profession said that if you don’t get scurvy you are all right. I think that this is a very grave error.
Scurvy is not the first sign of the deficiency but a premortal syndrome, and for full health you need much more, very much more. I am taking, myself, about 1 gram a day. This does not mean that this is really the optimum dose because we do not know what full health really means and how much ascorbic acid you need for it.
What I can tell you is that one can take any amount of ascorbic acid without the least danger.”
RECOMMENDATION: Next time somebody tells you that taking large doses of vitamin C is dangerous, you should inform them that the scientist who won a Nobel prize for discovering it said people can take any amount without the least danger.
The bottom line? Don’t let ‘experts’ in the mainstream media confuse you. During the twentieth century nine Nobel prizes were awarded for the discovery of vitamins. Despite the ongoing efforts of media ‘experts’ to pretend otherwise, the safety of these natural substances and their essential roles in human health is already proven beyond doubt.
