Vitamin C 'slows cancer growth' BBC news

Quote:Vitamin C 'slows cancer growth'

An injection of a high dose of vitamin C may be able to hold back the advance of cancers, US scientists claim. The vitamin may start a destructive chain reaction within the cancer cell, they add.
The jab halved the size of brain, ovarian and pancreatic tumours in mice, reported the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. However, Cancer Research UK said other studies suggested large vitamin C doses may interfere with cancer treatment. Earlier research by the team at the National Institutes of Health in Maryland had suggested that the vitamin, also called ascorbate, could kill cancer cells in the laboratory. After these successful tests in mice, they are now suggesting that the treatment be considered for human use at similar levels.

The dose they employed - up to four grams per kilo of bodyweight - was far greater than any that could be achieved using diet or vitamin pills, as the digestive system does not absorb more than a fixed amount taken orally. The mice were bred to have malfunctioning immune systems, then injected with human cancer cells, which as a result, grew quickly into large tumours. The vitamin was then injected into their abdominal cavity. Tumour growth and weight fell by between 41% and 53%, and while in untreated mice, the disease spread rapidly to involve other body parts, no such spread was seen in the vitamin C-treated animals. The researchers wrote: "These pre-clinical data provide the first firm basis for advancing pharmacologic ascorbate in cancer treatment in humans."

Peroxide bomb

The treatment works because a tumour cell is chemically different to a healthy cell. The vitamin C reacts with this chemical make-up, producing enough hydrogen peroxide to kill the cell, while leaving healthy cells unscathed. However, Dr Alison Ross, from Cancer Research UK said that much more work would have to be done to see if vitamin C could be a viable treatment. "This is encouraging work but it's at a very early stage because it involves cells grown in the lab and mice. "There is currently no evidence from clinical trials in humans that injecting or consuming vitamin C is an effective way to treat cancer.

"Some research even suggests that high doses of antioxidants can make cancer treatment less effective, reducing the benefits of radiotherapy and chemotherapy."

RE: Vitamin C 'slows cancer growth' BBC news
Interesting case in that China was accused for price fixing for Vitamin C.


Here's the
Code:
Vitamin C Antitrust Litigation Overview

This class action lawsuit claims that vitamin C manufacturers conspired to fix, raise, maintain, or stabilize prices of vitamin C and overcharged customers who purchased vitamin C. Vitamin C manufacturers deny they did anything wrong or illegal.

Judge Brian Cogan of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York is overseeing this class action. The lawsuit is known as the In re Vitamin C Antitrust Litigation, No. 1:06-MD-01738.

Northeast Pharmaceutical Group Company, Ltd. is a Defendant in the Injunction Class and the Indirect Purchaser Damages Class, but is not a Defendant in the Direct Purchaser Damages Class.

Aland (Jiangsu) Nutraceutical Co., Ltd. ("Aland") has agreed to Settlements with all three Classes.The Court will hold a Fairness Hearing to decide whether to approve the Aland Settlements on October 17, 2012 at 2:00 p.m.at the United States District Court at 225 Cadman Plaza East, Brooklyn, New York.

There are three Settlement Classes. You may be a member of one, two, or all three Classes. The Classes are defined below.

    Direct Purchaser Class

    If you made a DIRECT purchase of
        Vitamin C,
        For delivery in the U.S.
        Directly from a Defendant or another Chinese manufacturer of vitamin C (except Northeast Pharmaceutical)
        Between December 1, 2001 and June 30, 2006
        Without a contract, or with a contract that did not include an arbitration clause.

    Indirect Purchaser Class

    If you made an INDIRECT purchase of
        Capsules or tablets containing Vitamin C
        For use or consumption and not for resale
        Between December 1, 2001 and June 30, 2006
        And you currently live in and your purchase was made in one of the following 20 states or the District of Columbia: Arizona, California, Florida, Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, South Dakota, Tennessee, Vermont, West Virginia, or Wisconsin.

    Injunctive Class

        Purchased vitamin C manufactured by a Defendant, or products from any company containing vitamin C manufactured by the Defendants
        Directly from a Defendant or from any other company
        For delivery in the U.S.
        Between December 1, 2001 and now
        Without a contract, or with a contract that did not include an arbitration clause.

The Chinese government advised the Court that they required the Defendants to engage in the conduct in question as part of its regulation of the Chinese economy. The Court has already determined, in a Memorandum Decision and Order dated September 6, 2011, that the Defendants were not required to fix prices by the Chinese government.

I have long thought that the multi-billion dollar vitamin industry creates expensive urine, taxes the kidneys, has overstated the health benefits, nutrition can be better served by eating the right foods and encourages the breakdown of real food to its components for resale, thus makes food and food products less nutritious overall.

Food is less nutritious and supplements may or may not be a stop gap or an ease to peoples' concerns, in I'm taking supplements without addressing the real problem of less agricultural land, crop bunching, mono culture, far less fallows, chemical fertilizers pesticides and the lack of chemical fertilizers. All of which could be addressed by allocating larger plots of 'green' land to mixed private farms, community farms and greenhouses.

A bit extreme and bias but presents some facts to digest..

wow... the economic warfare on china's on every single front... It's the non-explosive version of "shock and awe" right now... In a sickening way, its pretty impressive.

related to the OP:

vitamin c is an antioxidant. Antioxidants stabilize free radical molecules. Free radical molecules reduce oxygenation of biological tissues. biological tissues low in oxygen promote tumor growth, so any antioxidant metabolized will aid in reduction or prevention of tumors. This has been proven in study after study after study from every corner of the globe (where they do studies.)

No disrespect to Linus Pauling but he didn't discover Vitamin C.

He discovered and repeatedly proved that it combats cancer.

...now if only those monsanto fuckers would genetically engineer a grain that would produce 1gm per serving of vitamin c! that would solve all our problems...

but really though, most vitamin C on the market today is sourced fom corn. ALL corn is allergenic, and most corn is genetically modified, especially in China. China's kind of a playgroud for GMO crops.

My basic point is, unless you're going to study the source your Vitamin C and your food, (and your water, and your toiletries, and your fabrics, and your cleaning products, and every container that holds all of these things - not including the pharmacueticals you need to "keep you alive and happy," - etc,) you're being poisoned more often than you think.
