• Join The Vitamin D Revolution Now:

    Posted March 25, 2011: by Bill Sardi

    “We’ve Only Got A Year Left”

    Those are the words of John Cannell MD, founder of The Vitamin D Council. What Dr. Cannell is talking about is the anticipated FDA approval of a multitude of vitamin D-like drugs (called analogs) in the next year.

    Big Pharma, moving in concert with the pro-drug agency, the Food & Drug Administration, that gives Rx pills false credibility, and the Institute of Medicine that recently cemented levels of preventable disease in the American population by raising vitamin D requirements by an insignificant amount (400 IU to 600 IU), are attempting to delay multitudes of Americans from taking vitamin D pills till they become drugs. Then American medicine will embrace the idea whole heartedly at ten times the price and with myriads of side effects from man-made vitamin D-like molecules that the human body is not designed to metabolize.

  • Depletion of Iron From Tumor Cells Prior To Vitamin C Therapy Quells Cancer

    Posted January 2, 2019: by Bill Sardi

    It is widely known that mega-dose vitamin C transiently produces hydrogen peroxide, an oxidant, to selectively kill cancer cells. In the late 1970s Linus Pauling and Ewan Cameron were first to report of success utilizing intravenous vitamin C to produce 1-year survival among 22 percent of otherwise hopeless cancer patients (chemotherapy at the time was far less effective). Subsequent studies concluded oral vitamin C could not possibly reach adequate blood concentrations of vitamin C to produce hydrogen peroxide (cancer cell killing effect) even though the data from that study ran contrary to the conclusions drawn.

  • Call For Zinc-Based Multivitamin To Reverse Immune Ageing Clock

    Posted November 1, 2018: by Bill Sardi

    A newly published report published in the journal Biogerontology calls zinc therapy to quell the age-related decline in the immune system.

    As people age and grow old so does their immune system, making them prone to life-threatening infections from microbes that would have normally have been intercepted in young adulthood by memory T-cells that in turn produce antibodies that result in life-long immunity.

    Zinc plays a key role in priming the human immune system throughout life.  Far too many Americans living in a well-fed country are zinc deficient.

  • Coronary Artery Disease: The Overlooked Vitamin

    Posted October 26, 2018: by Bill Sardi

    Quick, all you savvy readers who know about vitamins, without any further investigation, which antioxidant vitamin listed below is NOT known to exert therapeutic benefits for coronary artery disease?

    1. Vitamin A
    2. Vitamin E
    3. Vitamin C
    4. Vitamin D
    5. Vitamin K

    There is no trick to the above question. It is well documented that vitamins E, C, D and K may be beneficial in preventing and treating coronary artery disease. Most astute followers of vitamin therapy would likely say vitamin A shouldn’t even be on the list.

  • Life and Death & Vitamin C

    Posted September 2, 2018: by Bill Sardi

    A growing body of evidence suggests paramedics skip the traditional aspirin tablet and start giving vitamin C pills to those who survive a sudden cardiac arrest.

    Every day in the U.S. over 1000 people experience a sudden cardiac arrest.   And another 1000 occur throughout Europe daily.  As researchers report from the Amsterdam in the Netherlands, only half of these patients arrive at the hospital alive.  And 50% of these survivors will still die or be severely disabled due to what is called post-cardiac arrest syndrome.

    There is no effective therapy to improve prognosis and death.

  • Vitamin C Addresses The Cause Of The Severe Form Of Macular Degeneration, But Will It Ever Be Recommended?

    Posted August 5, 2018: by Bill Sardi

    It’s bad enough that the slowly progressive form of macular degeneration robs seniors of their central vision that hampers reading and TV viewing and forces the use of magnifiers.  Fortunately, side vision remains.  There is no effective treatment for this form of the disease that is commonly called dry macular degeneration (no swelling or hemorrhage).  But then the disease can turn worse as blood circulation to the back of the eye is impaired and the compensational growth of new blood vessels to provide oxygenated blood rapidly invade the visual center of the eye (macula) that can result in permanent legal blindness (worse than 20/200 vision).  This is commonly called wet macular degeneration.

    To put a halt to the invasive blood vessels (called neovascularization or angiogenesis) eye doctors inject chemicals that block the growth of the new blood vessels.  The medicine blocks growth factors from triggering the outcropping of these new blood vessels.  These needle injections are needed every 30 days or so and are quite effective.  However, about 15% of these cases fail to respond to the medicine and progress to legal blindness.

  • It’s Time To Substitute Methyl Folate Instead Of Folic Acid In Multivitamins.

    Posted May 20, 2018: by Bill Sardi

    Main points

    • Folic acid (vitamin B9) is now being supplied in fortified food and supplements, in sufficient doses to overwhelm the slow gut and liver metabolism of this B vitamin to produce un-metabolized folic acid.
    • Un-metabolized folic acid can also result from a gene mutation that affects 30-50% of humanity.
    • Un-metabolized folic acid has been linked with number of health problems, the most prominent being an undesirable rise in homocysteine levels. Un-metabolized folic acid is linked with mental disorders, miscarriages, strokes, migraine headaches, even a compromised immune system.
    • Folic acid food fortification to prevent birth defects among offspring of fertile women may result in disease substitution rather than disease prevention.
    • Methyl folate is the predominant form of vitamin B9 in the blood circulation and dietary supplements that provide methyl folate instead of folic acid would be less problematic and more appropriate for use by the masses.
    • The stakes are high. While researchers sort out all the data, based upon the best available science, it is best for multivitamins to substitute methyl folate in place of folic acid.

  • Needless Hysterectomies Still Prevail While Vitamin Therapy Is Ignored

    Posted March 1, 2018: by Bill Sardi

    Unnecessary hysterectomies are in decline but still 1 in 5 women who undergo the procedure may not need this operation.

    Putting young women on birth control pills which depletes folic acid that then induces breaks in DNA in the uterine lining which in turn produces an abnormal Pap smear that results in a hysterectomy is still a shameful practice.

  • Does Your Multivitamin Provide Nutrients That Boost Natural Killer Cell Activity To Optimize Your Immune System?

    Posted February 28, 2018: by Bill Sardi

    Modern medicine has a proposition for you. Here it is:

    Grow old, wait for your immune system to decline, develop pneumonia, cancer and all manner of viral infections, then let modern medicine step in and rescue you from life-threatening health problems.

    With that in mind, modern medicine is ramping up efforts to utilize a subset of white blood cells known as natural killer (NK) cells primarily to kill cancer cells. Natural killer cells release a toxic chemical called interferon to destroy tumor cells.

  • Researchers Incredulous Over Study That Finds Statin Drugs Negate Mortality Reduction Achieved By Taking Multivitamins

    Posted January 10, 2018: by Bill Sardi

    Incredulity: unwilling or unable to believe something.

    Saying the results of their study are “implausible” and should be “viewed with appropriate skepticism,” researchers are in frank denial over a study which shows a so-called “high-dose” multivitamin formula drastically reduces mortality rates among post-heart attack patients, a beneficial effect that was completely negated by concomitant use of statin cholesterol-lowering drugs.

    The study, published in the American Heart Journal, was conducted among adults who had experienced a prior heart attack and had undergone intravenous chelation therapy.  Vitamin and mineral replacement is customarily prescribed after chelation therapy.
