Post Big Doses of Vitamin C May Lower Blood Pressure
"Taking large doses of vitamin C may moderately reduce blood pressure, according to an analysis of years of research by Johns Hopkins scientists. But the researchers stopped short of suggesting people load up on supplements."

Yes, and "big" doses are defined as 500 mg!?!

I'd like to know who the scientists are that advise against high dose vitamin C! (We know that one of the greatest of all time recommended 6000 mg to 18000 mg daily!)

And I fear that johnwen may be right that this is the study causing the stir. Last night on the local news, a well advertised story about how taking vitamins is a waste of money...

Its probably because of the recent study and you can find more about its great results on next generation quack watch :

Right on cue, our favorite quack apologist and supplement hawker, Joe Mercola, chimed in with an article entitled Over 60 Billion Doses a Year and Not ONE Death, But Still Not Safe? In it, Mercola in his usual frothing-at-the-mouth style (although not nearly as frothy as another favorite quack apologist Mike Adams) rants that a recent survey from the American Association of Poison Control Centers’ National Poison Data System reveals, there were zero deaths linked to nutritional supplements in 2010, amusingly citing the Orthomolecular Medicine News Service as its source. Orthomolecular medicine, you might recall, is a form of supplement quackery originally embraced by Linus Pauling when he concluded that high dose vitamin C was the cure for the common cold and cancer.
