I think it should be criminal and it is immoral to ignore inexpensive, safe, easy to use and effective preventions and cures. I think of vitamin C and many diseses (especially viral diseases), vitamin B3 and schizophrenia, most mental illnesses (see http://www.orthomolecularvitamincentre. ... hrenia.php
), vitamins C and D and cancer, magnesium and cardiovascular disease, and the list goes on and on. When I think of these things (the diseases and simple nutritional cures) too much my stomach literally becomes upset and I become angry. The suffering, disability, financial burden and early deaths caused by the medical establishment's refusal to use nutritional cures should be criminal in my opinion. Sometimes I think "Well, I can't blame the docs because they are just covering their butts. They have years of education, training and as a result med school bills, debt for starting a practice, etc. and they must protect themselves." Then I think "in my state (TN) some docs give IV vitamin C (25 grams is usual). It is not illegal. All docs could give vitamin C for viral diseases in some form in addition to standard treatments. It is rare for a doc to recommend a patient take vitamin C in any form. Docs are supposed to be smart. If they are ignorant of vitamin C's benefits it is gross ignorance (they have all heard of treating with vitamin C) and the results are unforgivable. Docs run the medical system (they eventually get what they want) and it is their fault that the standard treatments don't include adequate amounts of vitamins and minerals. Even if standard treatments don't include vitamin C, individual docs could and should do it."
