Consumer alert: Most common vitamins, including children's vitamins, found to contain GMOs

GMO ingredient #2 - Ascorbic acid

In the delusional world of western thinking on nutrients, ascorbic acid is called "vitamin C."

It isn't vitamin C, of course. Real vitamin C is a broad spectrum of synergistic compounds, never just an isolated, homogeneous molecule. But don't tell that to doctors, scientists or journalists, because they've all bought into the "ascorbic acid is vitamin C" delusion.

So nearly all the common "vitamin C" pills are nothing more than heavily refined ascorbic acid derived from GM corn. That's why those pills don't work, by the way. So when the mainstream media declares, "Vitamin C shows no benefit..." in clinical trials, what they are really saying is that heavily processed ascorbic acid isolated from genetically modified corn doesn't improve your health, and that's no surprise.

Look on the labels of your cheap, low-grade vitamins and multivitamins... you'll see "ascorbic acid" listed there, meaning you are eating GMOs. Throw those away. They're crap.

for the record, I just tried to post this at Natural News

Mixing some fact with a lot of fiction hurts the credibility of both Mr. Adams and Natural News. While most vitamin C is manufactured in China, and for all we know, is made from GMO corn, that does not justify the inaccurate statements about ascorbic acid! Ascorbic Acid is vitamin C, and there is no stronger "fact" in science. In my opinion, scaring readers away from vitamin C - ascorbic acid - does a disservice to humanity. For those readers now confused, the best way back to reality is Linus Pauling's 1986 book How To Live Longer and Feel Better which clearly explains what vitamin C is - by definition that substance which cures scurvy.

Hmm... dont see your post. I put my 2 cents in. :D

Don't fall for the "real" vit C trick - this is just playing with words. In nutritional science the term 'vitamin C' refers to ascorbic acid, period. If they want to speak about 'vitamin C complex', that's fine, but it simply means AA plus some other chemicals.
'Always' and 'never' are 2 words you should always remember never to use.

By definition, vitamin C is ascorbic acid and its various mineral ascorbates. What's funny about this notion that it is a panoply of nutrients is that so much scientific research and effort went into discovering and isolating the one substance that, by itself, prevents scurvy. It was named "ascorbic" acid and "ascorbate" because that implies "antiscorbutic" or anti-scurvy properties. To turn around and claim that it is not "real" vitamin C is just plain flat out wrong, to the point of being ridiculous.
