I consider the last chapter to be one of the best on Vitamin C ever written, and that includes Linus Pauling's writings in HTLLFB. In the field of orthomolecular medicine Sheffrey's Vitamin C opus easily ranks among the works of Pauling, Cheraskin, or Hoffer. It's a superb distillation of thousands of hours of research, but without any rose-colored glasses. I highly recommend you find it and read it. Just one more thing - thank you Dr. Sheffrey for writing it.

Why, then, isn't vitamin C the medicine of choice for viral diseases? The answer: drug marketing tactics have ambushed it regularly with deceptive clinical trials along with scary rhetoric about toxicity. There's just too much money at stake to allow inexpensive C to be recognized as a potent therapeutic substance, for viral as well as many other diseases.
Dr. Sheffrey, a former clinical instructor at the University of Michigan School of Dentistry and former dental columnist for the Detroit Free Press, began a 6,000-hour review of the medical literature on vitamin C in 1986. He has written and lectured about C since 1992 and since 1994 has sent, at no charge, 228,000 pamphlets summarizing the information to doctors across the country...
