Vitamin C and Heart Disease
"Heart/Cardiovascular Disease is a form of Scurvy. Ignoring Pauling and Rath cost the U.S. millions of lives and trillions of dollars." - Owen Fonorow

The Pauling Therapy Vitamin C and Lysine for Cardiovascular Disease
"Let'start by thinking about "sludge" in a plumbing system. Sludge tends to plug up the smallest pipes in the system first - not the largest.
Likewise, if the system is cardiovascular, you would expect sludge (plaques) to build up first in the capillaries and arterioles, long before appearing in the carotid and coronary arteries. The first blockages, similarly, you would expect to occur way downstream of the pump, not in close proximity to the heart, where the pressure is the greatest.
Yet, this is not the way cholesterol plugs up arteries. It's the exact reverse. So a plumber's take would be that something else is happening."

Why They Lie...
Lowering Lp(a) with Ascorbate, Lysine and Proline.
Our Grant Application to Study Pauling Therapy for Heart Disease that was submitted to the Federal NIH National Center for Complimentary and Alternative Medicine... DENIED!!
Linus Pauling filmed the video Heart Disease: A Unified Theory of Cause and Treatment to tell the world that ultra high doses of ascorbate (Vitamin C) and lysine should be used to treat heart patients.
For patients following the advice of their cardiologists, and not supplementing vitamin C, the Pauling Therapy is a miracle.
In 1993, Pauling recommended not waiting for a time-consuming expensive double-blind study because the potential benefits so far out weigh the risks. Was Pauling right? . Does it really matter? There are no known harmful side effects.
As of this date, medicine has ignored Pauling and has still not run a double-blind controlled trial!
Millions more may die if the medical profession does not get with it. See http://www.PaulingTherapy.com for Detailed Information on the nature and cure for Heart Disease.

AMERICAN HEART ASSOCIATION BAD ADVICE: Don't Take Supplements??!?
The proper advice is for the AHA to RECOMMEND supplements for everyone until vitamin C is proven NOT to work. Vitamin C may be extremely beneficial to heart patients and provides low cost insurance. - Owen Fonorow
Recent science ignored by the AHA:
15-YEAR HARVARD STUDY OF 85,000 FINDS SINGLE VITAMIN C PILL REDUCES HEART DISEASE ALMOST 30%.
Interestingly, dietary intake of vitamin C seemed to have little effect on coronary heart disease risk. But if women used vitamin C supplements, their risk was reduced by 27 percent. According to the numbers in [this story] A single 360 mg vitamin C pill daily would save more than 300,000 lives per year.
2003 UK: ANTIOXIDANT VITAMINS AND MORTALITY IN OLDER PRESONS...
FINDINGS: Strong inverse relationship for blood ascorbate (vitamin-C) concentrations with all-cause and cardiovascular disease mortality, which were only marginally reduced after adjustment for confounders or supplement use. Those in the lowest fifth (< 17 micromol/L) had the highest mortality, whereas those in the highest fifth (> 66 micromol/L) had a mortality risk nearly half that (hazard ratio = 0.54; 95% CI: 0.34, 0.84). Similar results were found after the exclusion of those subjects with cardiovascular disease or cancer at baseline (hazard ratio = 0.51; 0.28, 0.93). In fully adjusted models, there was no evidence for an influence of alpha-tocopherol (vitamin-E), beta-carotene, or retinol (vitamin-A) on total mortality. Dietary antioxidants measured by the food-frequency questionnaire were not associated with all-cause or cardiovascular disease mortality"

Given no hope... "The Vascula surgeon is staggered... The artery is now clear." - Sep 2005
You maybe interested in the following information.
I have now been taking Pauling's therapy [Vitamin C/Lysine] for a period of two years. The amount taken has been 3000mg ea. in total each day, split morning & evening. I may have missed on a couple of occasions. These quantities are listed as a preventive dose. Prior to taking Linus Pauling's therapy my condition was as follows.
In June 22/6/05 I had my last scan. The result is the left Carotid artery according to the Vascular surgeon has closed down. The atherosclerosis beyond the blockage, which was entering deeper into my cranium has disappeared, in other words, the artery is clear. My right artery is also clear.
The Vascula surgeon is staggered.
Maybe had I gone onto the therapeutic quantities, my left artery may have cleared the plaque blocking it?
However this is very good news. My next scan is in December so I am hoping for just as good news. will keep you posted on the next scan.
regards Gerald G. (Australia)
