• Heart Attacks Vanish In Rush To Take Vitamin C Pills In Wake Of Covid-19 Coronavirus Epidemic In Repeat Of Dramatic Decline In Coronary Artery Disease Deaths In 1970 When Linus Pauling Published His Book Vitamin C & The Common Cold

    Posted May 3, 2020: by Bill Sardi

    La Verne, CA (May 1, 2020): With no approved drugs or vaccines available from modern medicine’s vast pharmaceutical armamentarium, the public, hearing news reports of successful use of vitamins and minerals to treat and prevent COVID-19 coronavirus infection, have literally emptied store shelves of vitamin C dietary supplements.

    A similar run on vitamin C pills occurred in 1970 when Dr. two-time Nobel Prize winner Linus Pauling wrote a book entitled VITAMIN C AND THE COMMON COLD.  And apparently both produced a similar result: a dramatic drop in coronary artery disease mortality.

    Unexpectedly, cardiologists are asking where have all the heart attacks gone?  A 40-60 percent reduction in hospital admissions for heart attack is being reported by cardiologists in the wake of the COVID-19 lockdown.

    Puzzled doctors at Christ Hospital in Cincinnati presume people are avoiding the hospital, living with their chest pain, in fear of getting infected with COVID-19.  Cardiologists hazard to guess their patients are dying at home.

    But in the 14th and 16th weeks of the year, total deaths have inexplicably dropped from ~55,000 per week to ~26,000 and 28,000.  Because of the COVID-19 lockdown there are fewer auto accident deaths, and with hospitals being closed, fewer deaths from medical errors.  But doctors would never be likely to guess the all-cause death rate has tumbled due to mass vitamin C supplementation, about the same 40% drop that occurred when Dr. Pauling’s book was published in 1970.

    This is a repeat of what happened in 1970 when two-time Nobel Prize winner Linus Pauling wrote his book VITAMIN C AND THE COMMON COLD and the consumption of vitamin C supplements rose dramatically with a commensurate decline in coronary artery disease mortality.  Pauling recommended 2300 milligrams of supplemental vitamin C per day for optimal health.

    The steep decline in hospitalizations for heart attacks is now being reported in cardiology journals worldwide.

    Bottles of vitamin C vanished from retail store shelves after the Orthomolecular Medicine New Service published a series of press releases citing successful use of intravenous vitamin C in quelling COVID-19 coronavirus. Those reports were circulated widely on the worldwide web.

    Cardiologist Thomas E. Levy MD, author of STOP AMERICA’S #1 KILLER, cited 650 references why vitamin C deficiency results in weak coronary arteries and blockages in circulation.

    The right dose

    While skeptics of vitamin C supplementation have criticized mega-dose vitamin C, the 2000 milligrams/day upper limit is the “completely safe” upper limit, with transient and reversible side effects not being reported until 10,000 mgs are consumed.

    Baseless concerns over toxicity mega-dose vitamin C have been made over the years, but mega-dose of vitamin C generates hydrogen peroxide (H2O2), which converts to harmless water (H2O).  The human body makes its own hydrogen peroxide as a cleansing agent.

    Mega-dose vitamin C does not promote DNA damage even in doses up to 5000 milligrams.

    While critics claim mega-dose vitamin C may induce kidney stones, a review published by the Orthomolecular Medicine News Service reveals vitamin C may actually be curative for stones.

    Full restoration of internal vitamin C synthesis

    Many generations ago the human body naturally produced vitamin internally as a hormone.  Biochemist Irwin Stone noted that most animals endogenously synthesize vitamin C.  For comparison, a goat, which is about the same and weight as a human, makes ~13,000 milligrams of vitamin C per day.  So it is difficult to believe 60-200 milligrams, the Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) or Reference Daily Intake (RDI) and Daily Value which is printed in dietary supplement labels, are sufficient to do anything but prevent frank scurvy where brain and eye hemorrhages occur, bones ache, gums bleed, skin bruises, fatigue and lassitude set in, teeth loosen, hair curls and breaks, skin becomes scaly and shortness of breath and mental depression set in.

    Even the best diet does not provide optimal amounts of vitamin C.  The recommended intake levels are not sufficient for smokers, alcohol imbibers, diabetics, the hospitalized, people under stress, growing children, women in pregnancy, during wounding healing, or with infection.

    The demand for vitamin C increases with illness, stress, infection, trauma and exposure to toxins.

    Longevity effect

    In a recent study researchers took laboratory mice and genetically altered them so they didn’t secrete vitamin C.  In other words, place them in the same predicament as humans.  These genetically altered mice lived 1/3rd as long as mice that internally secreted vitamin C.

    When the genetically altered mice were then given replacement oral vitamin C to achieve the same blood concentration as animals that naturally secrete vitamin C, they lived as long as mice that were not genetically altered.  In other words, if we extrapolate to humans, we are living 1/3rd as long as we were designed to live and this can be fully corrected with vitamin C supplementation.
