The New Definition of Scurvy... (Vitamin C Deficiency Disease)

"In my letter of 23rd July I redefined scurvy as "Any state in which supplementary vitamin C improves the pericorneal vasculature." and this has passed without challenge. " - Sydney J. Bush, Ph.D., DOpt

"People are today under the extremely seriously mistaken impression that nobody dies of scurvy any more! These studies may prove that we are all dying faster from scurvy than hitherto suspected." - Sydney Bush, a Doctor of Optometry, in Hull, East Yorkshire, North of London

Advancements in Medicine: CardioRetinometry Introduced in the BMJ...
"The method appeared to be demonstrating more atheroma than EBT and it is confidently anticipated that CardioRetinometry will prove to be a better surrogate outcome predictor of reduced CHD risk than any current diagnostic procedure.

"Serendipitously, ... it was noticed that those patients taking supplemental ascorbate were showing reductions of retinal arterial cholesterol, typically seen at stressed points e.g. bifurcations.

"CardioRetinometry appears to confirm the original work by Paterson (1939/40) and later, Willis & Fishman (1955)(2-8) all naming low Vitamin C as being associated with death from Coronary Heart Disease (CHD). Pauling/Rath theory (Lipoprotein alpha is a surrogate for vitamin C) appears also to be well confirmed (9-14) " - Sydney J. Bush, Ph.D., DOpt

New Definition of Scurvy Affects Everyone...

The pericorneal arterioles and capillaries can and are graded in my system of practise into ten degrees of scurvy allowing the accurately prediction to patients of how much or little vitamin C they have been eating. The highest mark anybody has had is 94% When I started this grading c.1997 I confounded my nursing staff by being able to correctly identify patients who ate no or few greens. But the same ease of observation does not attach to identification of the chronic subclinical variety. It cannot identify dietary faults in the most recent past. In a similar way to slow build-up of vitamin E in the body fat and cell walls of the brain, it takes over a month to be sure what is happening to the cholesterol in the retinal arteries.

The New Life Saver?

A new technique can access coronary heart disease risk (CHD) suggested by universal retinal arterial atheroma, previously unsuspected as reversible. Physicians have overlooked and Optometrists were not expecting that vitamin C would have this effect. This effect was accidentally found and linked to the vitamin C that contact lens wearers had agreed to take. We have increasingly noticed it from 1999 using Retinometry in the Hull Contact Lens and Eye Clinic. Such a discovery requires urgent evaluation.

Anatomy of a Discovery.

December 2, 2004, London

My son (the technician) has just a few minutes ago drawn  my attention to   images of a man (nightclub bouncer) who started taking his vitamin C two years ago.

At the arterio-venous crossover of the L. Sup temporal Artery there was a distinct 'nicking' compression of the vein visible in 2002 which has disappeared in his latest images.

Exposure and image sharpness are exactly comparable, the implication being therefore quite unmistakable - that arteriosclerosis (late stage atheroma when cholesterol is solidifying, mineralising and hardening the arterial wall -  as opposed to atheroma which is relatively soft) has been significantly reduced to the point that the artrerio-venous crossover is now normal.

My son Quentin deserves recognition for this.

We are sending pictures SAP


Thank you Quentin!
