Vitamin Studies…. By Andrew Saul
If you watch television, if you read newspapers or listen to most doctors you will get the idea that at best vitamin therapy needs more research, it is promising but there is really nothing there to go on. And at worst you will be told flat out that it is no good, that it is dangerous, that it will kill you.
Well, it is time for us to stop looking to people who don´t know what they are talking about and start looking at people who do. This has been my life´s work, I used to tell my children, I still do, I am not better than you, I am not smarter than you, I am just older than you, and in that time I had the chance to learn from people that actually know what they are doing.
Here is the story, the time line of Mega Vitamin Therapy, I guess you could say it is 81 years old because in:
Claus Washington Jungeblut, MD, Professor of Bacteriology at Columbia University first publishes on Vitamin C as prevention and treatment for Polio. In the same year, Jungeblut also shows that Vitamin C inactivates Diphtheria toxin.
The doses he used to treat Polio were not very high but it was so important that it was written up in Time Magazine in 1939. Whatever happened to Polio Therapy using Vitamin C?
There were several other papers as well in 1936, 37 and 38.
Evan Shute, MD and Wilfrid Shute, MD, demonstrate that Vitamin E-rich food like wheat germ oil, cures angina.
William Kaufman, MD, PHD, successfully treats arthritis with Niacinamide (Vitamin B3).

Ruth Flinn Harrell, PHD measures the positive effect of Thiamine (B1) on learning.
It is shown that Vitamin E cures hemorrhages in the skin and mucous membranes and to decrease the diabetic’s need for insulin.
This year it was shown that Vitamin E greatly improves wound healing, including skin ulcers. It is demonstrated that Vitamin E strengthens and regulates heartbeat and it is effective in cases of claudication, acute nephritis, thrombosis, cirrhosis and phlebitis. This same year William J. McCormick, MD, shows how Vitamin C prevents and cures kidney stones
Vitamin E is successfully used as therapy for gangrene, inflammation of blood vessels (Buerger’s disease), retinitis and choroiditis.
Roger J. Williams, PHD, publishes on how vitamins can be used to treat alcoholism.
Frederic R. Klenner MD, a Board-Certified specialist in diseases of the chest publishes cures of 41 cases of viral pneumonia using very high doses of Vitamin C.
Dr. William Kaufman publishes is book The Common Form of Joint Dysfunction.
Vitamin E is shown to be an effective treatment for lupus erythematosus, varicose veins and severe body burns.
Vitamin E treatment is found to be effective against Hodgkin’s disease (a cancer of the lymphatic system) and epithelioma.
Dr. Abram Hoffer, PHD, MD and colleagues demonstrate that Niacin (Vitamin B3) can cure schizophrenia.
The Shute’s Medical Text Book Alpha Tocopherol in Cardiovascular disease is published.
Dr. McCormick reports that cancer patients tested for Vitamin C were seriously deficient, often by as much as 4,500 milligrams.
Niacin (Vitamin B3) was shown to lower cholesterol.
Mayo Clinic researcher William Parsons, MD, and colleagues confirm Hoffer’s use of Niacin to lower cholesterol and prevent cardiovascular diseases.
Dr. Harrell demonstrate that supplementation of the pregnant and lactating mothers’ diet with vitamins increases the intelligence quotients of their offspring at three and four years of age.
Dr. Hoffer meets Bill W., cofounder of Alcoholics Anonymous and uses Niacin to eliminate Bill’s longstanding severe depression.
Vitamin D was shown to prevent breast cancer.
Vitamin D was found to be effective against lymph nodal reticulosarcoma
(a non-Hodgkin’s lymphatic cancer).
Linus Pauling, PHD, publishes the theoretical basis of high-dose nutrient therapy (Orthomolecular Medicine) in Psychiatry, in science and soon after defines Orthomolecular Medicine as “The treatment of disease by the provision of the optimum molecular environment, specially the optimum concentrations of substances normally present in the human body”…like vitamins and minerals, drugs on the other hand are not normally present, with very rare exceptions, substituting insulin if you don’t have enough is certainly valid, but most drugs are toxic molecular, they are foreign, the body does not know what to do with them, not one cell of your body is made out of a drug. Every cell in your body is made out of a vitamin.
Robert F. Cathcart, MD, uses large doses of Vitamin C to treat pneumonia and hepatitis.
Publication of The Healing Factor: “Vitamin C” against disease by Irwin Stone, PHD.
Dr. Klenner publishes his Vitamin Supplement Protocol to arrest and reverse multiple sclerosis, so does Dr. HT Mount, reporting on 27 years of success using Thiamine.
Ewan Cameron, MD, and Linus Pauling, PHD, publish their first joint paper on the control of cancer with Vitamin C, two years after Cameron began using high-dose IV Vitamin C.
Hugh D. Riordan, MD, and colleagues successfully used large doses of intravenous Vitamin C against cancer.
Alfred Libby, MD, and Irwin Stone present findings that the use of high doses of vitamins hastens and eases withdrawal from highly-addictive drugs, including heroin.
Dr. Ruth F. Harrell and colleagues demonstrate that very high doses of nutritional supplements help overcome learning disabilities in children and bring about highly significant improvement to those with Down Syndrome.
In Japan Murata, Morishige and Yamaguchi show that Vitamin C greatly prolonged the lives of terminal cancer patients.
Robert F. Cathcart, MD, Publishes on the Vitamin C treatment of AIDS.
Dr. Lendon H. Smith publishes Vitamin C as a fundamental Medicine: Abstract of Dr. Frederick R. Klenner M.D.’s published and unpublished work, now known as Clinical Guide to the use of Vitamin C.
American Doctors successfully use Vitamin C to treat kidney cancer, and in 1995 and 1996 other cancers.
Large-scale studies show that Vitamin E supplementation reduces de risk of coronary heart disease in men and women.
Vitamin E show to improve immune functions in patients with advanced colorectal cancer by immediately increasing T helper 1 cytokine production.
Doctors in America and Puerto Rico publish more clinical cases of Vitamin C successes against cancer.
Research sponsored by the U.S. National Institutes of Health shows hat high levels of Vitamin C kill cancer cells without harming normal cells.
Canadian Doctors report intravenous Vitamin C is successful in treating cancer.
Harold D. Foster and colleagues publish a double-blind, randomized clinical trial showing that HIV-positive patients given supplemental nutrients can delay or stop their decline into AIDS.
Korean Doctors report that intravenous Vitamin C “plays a crucial role in the suppression of proliferation of several types of cancer”, notably melanoma.
Also shown this year that natural Vitamin E is demonstrated to substantially reduce risk of lung cancer by 61%.
Each 20 micromole/liter increase in plasma Vitamin C is associated with a 9% reduction in death from heart failure.
Also B complex vitamins are associated with a 7 % decrease in mortality. Vitamin D with 8 % decrease in mortality.
Vitamin C shown to prevent and treat radiation-damage DNA.
B-Vitamin supplementation seen to slow the atrophy of specific brain regions that are a key component of the Alzheimer’s disease process and are associated with cognitive decline.
In patients with mild to moderate Alzheimer’s disease 2,000 IU of Vitamin E slows the decline compared to placebo. Data from 561 patients showed that those taking Vitamin E function significantly better in daily life and required the least care.
Vitamin C greatly reduces chemotherapy side effects and improves cancer patient survival.
Vitamin C is shown to decrease the complications and length of hospital days in intensive care unit patients.
Also this year a large scale study found a 26 to 55 percent risk reduction for pancreatic cancer in persons who consume more Vitamin C.
This year has been shown that supplementation with Vitamin C improves insulin mediator glucose disposal in people with type 2 Diabetes.
Other research are showing that antioxidants reduce aggressive prostate cancer risk by two thirds by taking only 1,500 mg of Vitamin C daily.
So, if you have been told that vitamins need more research, maybe they should look at the research we already have.
All this information might seem unbelievable to you and maybe even more unbelievable to your doctor, but the truth is that all this information comes out of journals that are published and read by Doctors.
If your Doctor is not using high-dose Vitamin Therapy, then you have an old fashion Doctor.
Let’s help our Doctors out, bring this information forward, let them learn Nutrition, they did not get it in Medical School. It is time for us that they see all these evidence about how Vitamins safe lives.
Vitamins are not the problem, they are the solution, high dose of Vitamins have been used by Doctors to treat diseases, serious diseases for 81 years.
