    Vitamin C puts the brakes on cancer cell growth

    Vitamin C puts the brakes on cancer cell growth
    by: S. L. Baker

    A half century ago, Linus Pauling began his pioneering research into how vitamin C impacts health (http://www.naturalnews.com/025802.html). Now, almost 25 years after Pauling's death, a new study backs up his contention that vitamin C has remarkable healing and protective benefits. In fact, now scientists have discovered how vitamin C may put the brakes on the growth of cancer cells.

    Margreet Vissers, associate professor at the University of Otago's Free Radical Research Group in New Zealand, headed the study which was just published in the journal Cancer Research. "Our results offer a promising and simple intervention to help in our fight against cancer, at the level of both prevention and cure," Dr.Vissers said in a statement to the press.

    She pointed out that the role of vitamin C in cancer treatment has been debated for years, with many anecdotal accounts claiming vitamin C can help in both the prevention and treatment of cancer. In earlier studies conducted by Dr. Vissers, she demonstrated the vitamin's importance in keeping cells healthy. And these findings suggested that vitamin C might be able to limit diseases such as cancer that involve cells that go haywire. In the case of a malignancy, for example, cells have unregulated growth.

    So Dr. Vissers and her New Zealand research team decided to investigate whether vitamin C levels were lower in patients with endometrial tumors. They also looked to see whether these low vitamin C levels correlated with the aggressiveness of a malignancy and the resistance of a tumor to medical therapy.

    The results? Tumors were less able to accumulate vitamin C when compared with normal healthy tissue and a lack of vitamin C allowed tumors to survive and grow more easily. Tumors with low vitamin C levels were found to contain more of a protein dubbed HIF-1 which helps cancer thrive and spread, even under conditions of stress.

    The findings are important because they provide evidence for the first time of a relationship between HIF-1 and levels of vitamin C levels in cancerous tumors. And it appears treating cancer patients with adequate amounts of vitamin C might well reduce HIF-1, help limit the rate of tumor growth and increase the responsiveness to tumors to therapy. Vitamin C might even prevent the formation of solid tumors in the first place, according to Dr. Vissers media statement.

    Thanks, I fixed the link.

    The recommended dosage would be different for everybody. I take 850mg with each meal or 2,550 mg daily. I also take 10,000 IUs of vitamin d3, also known to combat cancer. But I know people who take less and others who take more.

    Here is an article on dosage:

    And here are some articles about vitamin d and cancer:

    Re: Vitamin C puts the brakes on cancer cell growt

    I take about 1000mg of Vit C, and 4000-6000 Vit D3, both throughout the day. Plus other supplements.

    Two of my favorite alt health sites are:
    Curezone, and Shirley's Wellness Cafe.
    Thanks again for the additional links.

    On the topic of supplements, I also take Vital Earth's Fulvic Mineral Complex.
    http://www.vitalearthminerals.com/Fu...ls_p/l-fmc.htm

    I add it to my juices and other foods. It's pricey (about $30 for 32oz). Are you familiar with FMC?

    Most of the supplements that I use come from the company the clinic I work for purchases. First heard of them when I worked at the Acupuncture/Alternative Medicine clinic and when I started working for the clinic I work for now, we opened an account with him and order from him.

    I know where the ingredients come from, I know how the products are made and best of all, it's not an MLM, affiliate site or anything questionable.

    This past year they branched out to sales outside of just practitioners. You can get the same supplements many clinics carry directly from the manufacturer.

    If you want a link, I'll be happy to supply one to you via PM.

    Re: Vitamin C puts the brakes on cancer cell growt

    This is very ineresting as I have just lost 2 parents to cancer and have done about 6 months of research. I get e-Mails from HSI and Dr Mercola, Natural Health Sherpa and
    Mark Hyman MD. I know there is benefit from vitamins and have heard that there is a vitamin C anti cancer treatment. But it has to be ijected for maximum benefit and the claims are that the vitamin C is not the standard vitamin c suppliment as this does not get into our system adequately.
    Also we need to understand according to my research that Vitamin suppliments may only be of a small adavntage with out the Q 10 Enzymes that we get from fruit and vegetables or can now purchase from health stores. Why because the enzymes are required for our system to digest and utilise the vitamins and minerals we meed. Also this new research has claims that with out the Q 10 Enzymes we can not break down and digest proteins. And Cancer has a very strong protein wall. So if our diets are full of hard to break down proteins such as Beef or Meat we are making it more difficult for our system to cope with supplimenting the cells with Vitamins. In short. But we also need Vitamin D and E. And it is a good idea to use anything that can help with our immune system and free radical disposal. Mangosteen, Purple carrots, Aloe Vera, Chlorophyll, Lemon Grass, Ginger, Grape seed extract, beets, beans, Asparagus, raspberries and any berries, Graviolla, Pawpaw leaves tea, DCA may be good if you can get it (Canadian tests) oliender treatment and there is a new one from Australia being tested on our pets called EBC 46 according to an current affair program and the CSIRO scientists in QLD Australia that have found this it can get trid of tumor in less than a month with out side effects.. Vitamin B 17 derived from fresh almond seeds and apple seeds apparently has cyenide and this is an anti cancer poison ( removed from Vitamin suppliment stores by the health department for our safety) Green tea and black tea, brown rice tea, shitake mushrooms and burdock with carrots and chinese radish (there is a soup mix for this on the internet) any thing that keeps our system alkalised and prevents acidosis. This includes having enough oxygen in the cells as it was found in 1931 by Dr Otto Warburg and his partner that Cancer will start if the cell is 60% deprived of oxygen and may start within 38 Hrs if the cell is 35% deprived of oxygen.
    But if Chemo and radio therapy are used your system is placed in a worse predicament as this destroys your immune system or reduces it to a state where the body needs a lot more ****** and time to recover. Yet cancer cells feed on sugar and use up (some say, according to my recollection from reading ) 8 to 16 times the amount of ****** than a normal cell. (ATP normal cells need oxygen to function but cancer cell don't, they feed on sugar) a bit like a vampire cell. So this makes a cancer sufferer weak as cancer cell drain the bodies ******. So we have to be carefull with our sugar intake in particular the Fructrose type sugar.
    But with all this the cancer patient needs to have the capability to take the suppliments if the cancer is stage 3 or 4 this makes it more difficukt. Where my Fathers cancer was spreading while getting Chemo he trusted the doctors that were very non transparent and were telling him and my self lies or wording their answers when questioned in ambigous ways. Or ignore any questions and put up a wall of silence. Then the list of what suppliments wer not to be taken was presented to him and I checked some herbs I did not even hear about from a list of over 20. Why because it may interfier with chemo treatment. Yet he got MRSA VRE and had an endless list of stuff ups while in hospitals. And as he had radiotherapy 4 years prior for collorectal cancer he was over radiated. So his rectal passige way started to bleed after an exam and this was the onset of his problem. Initially ha may have made a mistake by taking his coloscopy bag off and returning to a normal but reduced size rectal stool movement. For the operation 4 years prior when he may have been mis diagnosed with cancer. (I saw his X rays and could not see where his initial cancer was in his lower colon or rectal area), So while getting treatment his condition got a lot worse. But the reason we could not stop his colon or rectal bleeding was due to his prior over radiation treatment. (When I asked his doctor for Radio therapy about this he answere "What do you want we gave him 4 extra years". And I think the doctors realised they were not going to be able to help him so they just kept him living in hope. When asked about this his Chemo specialist stated "well is some hope better than no hope"? When I asked a member of the medical staff at the hospital "What would happen if there was a cancer cure or tablet found?and added half of you would be out of work and half of this medical equipment would become redundant. He answered "That would never happen! as we would get it and control it".
    Mums cancer was spreading while she was getting Radio therapy, and by the time they did the scans and wasted over 4 months before starting treatment her cancer got to be from barely visible to stage 2, During treatment it has spread within a few months and after staying in a hospital for a month she passed away. Both parents gone within 3 months of each other. Unfortunately the side effect from the radio therapy made mum un able to hold food or drink down due to a severe Diahorea and stomach upset.
    Not in a third world country with out a good medical system. But in Australia we spend a lot on our medicare system. Too bad it appears to be missused by the people whom are supposed to be trying to look after our health. I wondered why patients are sent to X Rays and Ultra sounds then back to the Doctor and specialist, Then when it showed nothing signficant to CT and Pet scans, Than back to specialists, Than to hospital for an endonoscopy and finally to MIR scans. When the sample from the blood and the effected area gives the doctors an confirmed Cancer cell test which also tell them what kind of cancer and if it is fast or slow from known cases on record. Milk the medical money cow while the patients condition gets worse. It helps to know this and to have a big family for support as the old saying goes theres safety in numbers.
    As I was told by pelative care doctors trying to get us to authorise them to LET HIM GO, and you have a small family it is hard for you to care for him.
    Cost factor, or as stated by the doctor "It's cruel to keep him alive" if he gets a stroke or gets worse we will not send him to ICU or attempt to revive him" I felt like they were trying to cover up by getting rid of the evidence. And you try and get an autopsy when doctors will hardly ever go against doctors.

    I hope this helps, carer and family member of two victims of cancer and the medical system.


    Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year.

    I hope this is really true about Vitamin C. Cancer comes in my family, and I am constantly fearing it will get me, too.

    I've notice that a lot of chiropractic offices sell their own vitamins and supplements or some brand that you can't find it stores. Why is that? Are they really better?

    Re: Vitamin C puts the brakes on cancer cell growt

    I've lost friends to cancer, and it drives me insane that doctors tell them not to take any supplements. Sure, just let the chemo slowly kill you, and don't you dare try to help yourself. I personally would love to see them all put out of business!

    Thanks for the info!

    I've sold certain brands because of the way the product was manufactured.The other reason I've seen, in terms of why some chiros sell their own brand, *****es around the profit margin and marketing a private label can bring.

    I've taken vitamin C for years and other vitamin supplements as well and I definitely believe in taking vitamins. People have given some great reviews about Cold Eeze and it also has vitamin C in it. I think eating a lot of the right kinds of foods makes a big difference, too. Our bodies need the vitamins, minerals and nutrients that are in the healthier foods.

    Most definitely a proper diet makes all the difference in the world in your health and well being.
    We don't want to forget exercise too.

    I've never taken many supplements, I'm not against taking them but there sure is a lot of controversy about whether vitamins and supplements really do a person any good.
