I'm lazy? What is CMV? (A virus I assume..) I"d be extremely careful with IVC during pregnancy. This illustrates my one area of confusion with Beard and his enzyme theory. If Beard is right - and cancers are (false) placentas, and if high IVC kills cancer aka (false) placentas, then why wouldn't high levels of vitamin C affect a real placenta?
I do know from personal experience that a woman's bowel tolerance rises, and that 10,000 mg is not only safe - but makes for a wonderfully easy pregnancy and healthy baby.
My educated guess is that any blood level that is consistent or less than what an animal creates naturally, with some leeway, is perfectly safe during pregnancy. But I wouldn't risk spikes high above the natural level in animals. Just a guess.
