High dose vitamin C injections have shown positive results in fighting cancer cells in studies done in vitro, on mice and on humans. Peer-reviewed medical research has been recently published in the journal Science Translational Medicine that reports the findings of a team of researchers from the University of Kansas who tested the effects of vitamin C given in high doses intravenously on a group of human subjects with cancer. They found that the injections fought cancer cells yet left healthy cells well intact unlike chemotherapy.
The BBC reports that vitamin C effectively targeted ovarian cancer cells while completely avoiding healthy cells. The benefits of high-dose vitamin C injections were also observed in conjunction with chemotherapy. Some are suggesting that the injections provide a great boost alongside chemo treatment. However chemo does destroy all cells, both healthy and not and is often the cause of death for cancer patients.
