Upon reading this news, most natural health advocates will hardly know whether to laugh or cry. In reality, there is already plenty of scientific evidence to show that vitamin C and other essential micronutrients can help control the coronavirus pandemic. In order to protect the financial interests of the trillion-dollar-a-year pharmaceutical investment industry, however, this evidence is essentially being ignored.
As Dr. Rath describes in his recent Open Letter, vitamin C can help fight viral infections in many ways. Examples include slowing down or blocking viral entry and spread in the body, improving immune function and resistance against viral infections, inhibiting viral multiplication in infected cells, and inducing suicide (apoptosis) in virally infected cells
These anti-viral mechanisms of vitamin C have been scientifically demonstrated in a multitude of viral diseases affecting humans including influenza, herpes, and polio. Moreover, when used against the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), vitamin C has been shown in research studies to inhibit its multiplication by over 99 percent.
