A new review published in the Journal of Experimental & Clinical Cancer Research describes how mounting evidence confirms that vitamin C has the potential to be a potent anti-cancer agent when administered intravenously in high doses. Authored by researchers from the Department of Medical Oncology at the University Medical Center in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, the paper notes that clinical trials have confirmed the safety and indicated the efficacy of intravenous vitamin C (IVC) in eradicating tumor cells of various types. Stating that the implementation of high-dose vitamin C may be a breakthrough in the treatment of cancer patients with poor prognosis and few available treatment options, the researchers conclude that further clinical examination of this promising and non-toxic treatment modality is not only warranted, but also highly needed.
The latest statistics from South Africa reveal that intensive care admissions for the Omicron Covid variant are running at just a third of what they were at the same point in the country’s Delta wave. The figures come following the chair of the South African Medical Association (SAMA) reporting that Omicron’s symptoms are mostly “very, very mild” and could treated at home. With even US National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases director Anthony Fauci now admitting the new variant is “almost certainly” not more severe than Delta, the question that urgently needs to be asked is a very simple one: why is global tension being raised to a state of panic?
A worrying consequence of the mainstream media’s obsessive coverage of COVID-19 over the last 2 years is that deaths from other major infectious diseases have essentially been ignored. A notable example is that of tuberculosis (TB), a disease that 10 million people globally now fall ill with each year and 1.5 million die from. Reminding us that TB remains one of the world’s top infectious killers, a new scientific review examines the potential role of vitamins in its prevention and treatment. Promisingly, not only do the authors suggest and encourage the use of vitamins against TB, they conclude that using them may significantly improve outcomes.
