With more than 55 million people worldwide now living with dementia, and nearly 10 million new cases occurring every year, finding effective and safe ways to maintain brain health is becoming an increasingly challenging global health problem. Currently approved pharmaceutical drugs for dementia neither cure nor halt cognitive decline; at best they simply delay the worsening cognitive impairment.

Promisingly, the researchers found particularly noteworthy benefits to memory, attention, intelligence, vocabulary, creative thinking, reaction time, comprehension, learning, and other critical measures of cognition.
The latest ‘bubble’ in the global media campaign to mandate vaccination of the general public is the story that now zoos around the world are beginning to vaccinate their most precious animals. This is a good example of how scientific facts are being turned upside down and world opinion is being manipulated on behalf of the multi-billion pharmaceutical drug industry.
In a recent study, researchers from the Tabriz University of Medical Sciences in Iran examine the effects of intravenous vitamin C on critically ill intensive care unit (ICU) patients with severe pneumonia. Published in the BMC Infectious Diseases journal, the study found that treatment with vitamin C was safe and could decrease inflammation, the duration of mechanical ventilation, and use of vasopressor medications such as norepinephrine (noradrenaline). Among the 40 patients in the control group, 11 deaths occurred. The group of 40 patients given vitamin C saw just 6 deaths. The study results add to the growing body of evidence supporting the use of vitamin C in the treatment of respiratory infections.
