Vitamin C will help cure cancer?

Medical scientists from Kansas University in the course of their research concluded that vitamin C can play a positive role in the treatment of cancer, having a negative impact on malignant cells.

It is established that a vitamin, trapped in malignant cells, assists other medical preparations in the destruction of such cells. In this case, this vitamin protects normal cells and leaves them completely unscathed.

These findings were confirmed by a number of clinical and laboratory tests, during which it was successfully demonstrated that active components of ascorbic acid help to increase the lethal effects of chemotherapeutic drugs in the fight against cancer cells.

Vitamin C researchers tested in mice. These animals are deliberately induced ovarian cancer. And the introduction of vitamin C really helped chemotherapeutic drugs to suppress the growth of tumors or to reduce them.

Positive results of studies in mice allowed the scientists to proceed to the next stage of the experiments: clinical trials were started with the participation of 27 patients, each of which had stage III or IV stage of ovarian cancer.

What happened in the end? Those patients who were intravenously injected with vitamin C along with chemotherapeutic agents, according to the results of additional studies, showed a slightly smaller number of lesions in the bone and brain. In addition, there was a decrease in lesions in important internal organs.

But that's not all. Studies on the use of vitamin C also showed that in a group of patients receiving this vitamin, relapse occurred 8.75 months later, when compared with conventional patients( those who received only chemotherapy).

However, a group of scientists indicates that the idea with the use of vitamin C intravenously appeared in 1970.Indeed, even then, options were considered with the use of this vitamin as part of complex therapy based on medications. However, at that time, the potential of the vitamin in question was not completely revealed, although scientists' attempts were made in the 1970s and also in the early 1980s. After unsuccessful research, many experts began to assert that the initial experiments were carried out with an error: the fact was, experts said, that intravenous administration of vitamin C does not provide enough of its accumulation in the blood. Such a situation, according to scientists, was due to the absorption of the vitamin in the intestine and its subsequent excretion through the kidneys.

As it turned out, the majority opinion was a misconception. It remains only to provide more extensive research. And it is for this purpose that Kansas scientists have planned to conduct trials of a much larger scale, which will allow them to confirm the beneficial effect of ascorbic acid on the body of patients who have cancer.
