The relationship between vitamin C and health is controversial. Double Nobel Prize winner, Linus Pauling, argued that ascorbate could prevent or cure heart disease, stroke, cancer and infections. Conventional experts disagreed, disparaging supplements in favour of fruits and vegetables. This book presents a new model, describing the action of vitamin C in health and disease. It demonstrates conclusively that the establishment has misinterpreted the evidence, potentially resulting in epidemic levels of avoidable disease. The dynamic flow model explains the current results and points the way for future experiments. Vitamin C supplementation could eradicate many diseases. In pharmacological doses, it could cure the major killers of the industrialised world. Failure to test these ideas may condemn countless people to chronic illness and premature death.

Apr 7, 2012This book has a great section on `the scientific method' and how to think for yourself and use logic, rarher than just accepting that what is well-known and accepted is always accurarte and unbiased. It should be essential reading for all doctors! This is a great book but seems more suitable for doctors than patients, as it has a quite formal writing style and is far more heavy going to read. While the creation of this book is admirable, there is little in this book that is not covered just as well or better in `Vitamin C: The real story' and it is this book I would recommend of the two, although the books are very similar in content and quality. This is still a very solid book however, of a very high quality. The sections on scientific method and the bias and illogicality of our medical system are just wonderful. The importance of vitamin C cannot be overemphasised. Vitamin C is involved in almost every bodily process and helps our bodies maintain homeostasis. The best form of... More > vitamin C appears to be the new liposomal vitamin C which has a similar effect to vitamin C given by IV. For more information see Dr Levy's vitamin C book 'Curing the Incurable.' Dr Levy writes: "I found that liposome encapsulated vitamin C, taken orally, was roughly 10 times more effective clinically in resolving infectious diseases than the IVC. Having given thousands of IVCs and taken hundreds myself, this was difficult to comprehend, even though the clinical observation was quite straightforward. I subsequently realized that the liposome gave the ultimate bioavailability: intracellular delivery, including the mitochondria, endoplasmic reticulum, and even the nucleus. 2 to 6 packets daily covers most individuals for most situations."

May 11, 2009"Ascorbate: The Science of Vitamin C" Groundbreaking! This book deconstructs the myths surrounding the use of Vitamin C. Popular medical opinion has treated the use of Vitamin C in the prevention and cure of disease as, at best, useless and maybe even dangerous. The people who are concerned with damaging the reputation of vitamin C are possibly the same people who advocate the use of expensive drugs, sold by big multi-national drug companies. Is this a coincidence? 'Ascorbate' recommends the widespread use of Vitamin C that could cut the health service budget in half. This book is well written, insightful and at the forefront of scientific literature.
Oct 29, 2008"Ascorbate by Ruth Chappell" This book is about a subject that is important for all of us. As well as giving an account of the current differing opinions in this controversial debate, it gives us an insight into the history of research into vitamin C. I can highly recommend this book.
Aug 25, 2008"What the world needs now" One can't help thinking about how the world might change if this book was used to help teach the scientific method to our school children. Clear, concise, accurate, unbiased and easily read by everyone. What the world needs now is several thousand more courageous scientists like Dr. Hickey. Some of us believe that the reputation of science has suffered because of public confusion over findings in medicine. This book, if widely read, will do much all by itself to restore confidence in Science. For that we owe Dr. Hickey a great deal. But it does lead to my only beef: This book should be available in hard cover! This is one book that should be in as many public and medical libraries as possible.
