A new way of looking at scurvy we are not all alike and our requirements for vitamin C may differ...

"If the claims for vitamin C are correct, it might replace many lucrative and expensive medications. As they researched their book ASCORBATE, Steve Hickey, PhD, and Hiliary Roberts, PhD, began to wonder if Linus Pauling's offense had been to discuss openly the properties of a substance that threatens the profitability of medicine."

FDA Attacks Drive Foundation's New Mission

VitaminCFoundation.ORG has a new mission,

Currently, in the United States, federal law creates drugs out of nondrugs by virtue of what is said online. Federal law forced us to evicerate 20+ years of scientific information about vitamin C. This is how long we have been dissemenating information about Vitamin C through this web site. The FDA sent us a warning letter. Foundation attorney's tell us that this web site cannot have links to any positive scientific studies about vitamin C if we also sponsor and have links to any vitamin C products.

This law needs to change. Telling the truth should never be against the law.

If the .ORG web site cannot say anything about the health benefits of vitamin C, by government edict, its mission will now be devoted to Changing the *U.S. Federal law that turns "chicken soup" into a drug when a company selling chicken soup says online that it can cure colds.

The Vitamin C Foundation will spearhead the effort to change the federal law that classifies a food a drug because it "prevents, mitigates, treats or cures."

Drugs would be drugs because taking them might otherwise harm people without regulation.

Chicken Soup is not a drug, no matter what any company selling it says.

The Foundation has hired Jonathan Emord and Associates to help us draft the petition to alter the wording of the Federal Food and Drug act.

Stay tuned.

No Deaths from ANY Vitamin

Zero Fatalities from Any Dietary Supplement, e.g. Minerals, Vitamins, Amino Acids, Herbs, Homeopathic Remedies

(OMNS Jan 16, 2015) There was not even one death caused by any dietary supplement in 2013, according to the most recent information collected by the U.S. National Poison Data System. The new 251-page annual report of the American Association of Poison Control Centers, published in the journal Clinical Toxicology (1), shows no deaths whatsoever from any dietary supplement.

Additionally, there were zero deaths from any amino acid or herbal product. This means no deaths at all from blue cohosh, echinacea, ginkgo biloba, ginseng, kava kava, St. John's wort, valerian, yohimbe, Asian medicines, ayurvedic medicines, or any other botanical. There were zero deaths from creatine, blue-green algae, glucosamine, chondroitin, melatonin, or any homeopathic remedy.

Furthermore, there were zero deaths from any dietary mineral supplement. This means there were no fatalities from calcium, magnesium, chromium, zinc, colloidal silver, selenium, iron, or multimineral supplements. Reported in the "Electrolyte and Mineral" category were two fatalities from the medical use of "Sodium and sodium salts." These are not dietary supplements.

The U.S. National Poison Data System is "the only comprehensive, near real-time, poisoning surveillance database in the United States. In 2013, poison professionals at the nation's 55 poison centers managed about 2.2 million human poison exposures, with children younger than 6 accounting for about half of all poison exposure cases."

Over half of the U.S. population takes daily nutritional supplements. Even if each of those people took only one single tablet daily, that makes 154,000,000 individual doses per day, for a total of over 56 billion doses annually. Since many persons take more than just one vitamin or mineral tablet, the numbers are considerably higher, and the safety of nutritional supplements is all the more remarkable

The New Standard of ER Medical Care

When Dr. Thomas E. Levy, MD, JD wrote the book Primal Panacea in 2011, he informed us..

"that not a single hospital in the United States utilized Intravenous Vitamin C."

The Cure for Sepsis - Vitamin C

After Dr. Marik's Vitamin C Cures Sepsis discovery was shown on television it created a new standard of medical care. According to Dr. Levy,

"" The Vitamin C genie is now out of the bottle since the mainstream press inadvertently gave this publicity. Any patient can demand Vitamin C now, or tell the doctor/hospital to face the legal consequences. “It’s all a question of when critical mass is reached, and I think the TV report pushed the issue to that point… ” – Dr. Thomas E. Levy. MD, JD

In 2007 alone the U.S. Consumer Product and Safety Commission recalled 338 products from China (NPR, 2007b).

What if All Vitamin C Isn't Created Equal?

Vitamin C comes in many forms. The most common form of vitamin C is Ascorbic Acid (Hydrogen Ascorbate). Vitamin C does not have to be acidic. It is also found in various alkaline forms; the mineral ascorbates: e.g. Sodium Ascorbate, Calcium Ascorbate, Magnesium Ascorbate, Potassium Ascorbate, etc.
Note that all forms are "ascorbates." It is really the "ascorbate" portion of each molecule that has vitamin C activity. Chemists refer to vitamin C as the ascorbate ion, but the ascorbate fraction rapidly attaches to some other ion (e.g. hydrogen, sodium, calcium, magnesium potassium, etc.). Usually, vitamin C is referred to as the most common form: Ascorbic Acid.

(Note ascorbic acid is a weak acid, having about the same acidity as a cola soft drink)

Vitamin C also comes in different shapes in three-dimensional space. The different shapes of the ascorbate fraction have the same atoms, but the atoms are arranged differently, much like the right hand is the same but different than the left hand. This is called chirality in chemistry; Linus Pauling explained that there are exactly four different shapes ("sterioisomers") of the ascorbate ion, and they are L-ascorbate, D-ascorbate, LD-ascorbate and DL-ascorbate.

Thanks to Linus Pauling we know that only the L-ascorbate shape has vitamin C activity, i.e. only the L- shape can cure the vitamin C deficiency disease scurvy.

Pharma's Don't-Take-Vitamins Study Diametrically Opposed by Valid Study
"Ask yourself why vitamins (!) are suddenly an issue and who is behind it? As food is increasingly degraded, are you not aware how crucial supplementation for vital nutrients is? Are you aware that disease is an investment industry and this is in the service of it?

Huffington Post just published Women Who Take Vitamin Supplements May Have Increased Death Risk, at precisely the moment that the pharmaceutical industry is in health attack mode to limit access to nutritional supplements in the US. How coincidental!

The AMA, which is heavily funded by Pharma, put out a study purporting to show that vitamins are a threat to people.s lives..."

More Absurd FDA Action Against Vitamin C

In a time of budget cutting and deficits, the FDA somehow has the capacity to go after one of the safest substances known!
FDA also noted packaging materials place product names in close proximity to the words .Cold Remedy." Further, website claims at issue include .Extra boost of Vitamin C in every RapidMelt,".Extra boost of Vitamin C and Echinacea in every RapidMelt," .Reduces the duration of cold symptoms when taken at the first sign of a cold."

FDA said these statements about the RapidMelts Vitamin C products are intended for use in the diagnosis, cure, mitigation, treatment or prevention of disease in violation of section 201(g)(1)(B) of the Act (21 U.S.C. § 321(g)(1)(B)). Also, the statements say the products are intended to affect the structure or function of the body of man in violation of section 201(g)(1)(C) of the Act (21 U.S.C. § 321(g)(1)(C))

The Vitamin A and Vitamin D Controversy

Vitamin C Foundation The Cod Liver Oil Debate (from Weston-Price) Vitamin A is not a Vitamin D Antagonist.

Contrary to information from the Vitamin D Council, and most recently, from the Life Extension Foundation," Vitamins A and D cooperate with one another. They are not antagonists, but large doses of one may cause harm when not accompanied by the other."

Since vitamin A is required as a signaling partner with vitamin D, vitamin D will increase the turnover of vitamin A. If vitamin A is provided in excess, the results are generally beneficial. Excess vitamin A is stored in the liver. However, when the liver's storage capacity is exceeded, the overload of vitamin A causes the cells to burst, damaging the liver and releasing storage forms of vitamin A into the systemic circulation that do not belong there. By increasing the utilization of vitamin A, vitamin D can help prevent vitamin A toxicity.

If vitamin A is in short supply, on the other hand, the results can be detrimental. By .stealing. all of the vitamin A needed to use for vitamin D specific functions, the body will not have enough vitamin A left to support the many other functions for which it is needed.this may partially explain the toxic effects of excess vitamin D.

United States Patent 5,336,499
Antelman August 9, 1994
Molecular crystal device for pharmaceuticals


A novel molecular scale device is described which is bactericidal,
fungicidal, viricidal and algicidal. The anti-pathogenic properties
of the device are attributed to electron activity indigenous to
diamagnetic semiconducting crystals of tetrasilver tetroxide (Ag.sub.4
O.sub.4) which contains two monovalent and two trivalent silver ions
in each molecular crystal. When the crystals are activated with an
oxidizing agent, they release electrons equivalent to 6.4.times.10.
sup.-19 watts per molecule which in effect electrocute pathogens.
A multitude of these devices are effective at such low concentrations
as 0.3 PPM used as preservatives in a variety of formulations ranging
from cosmetics to pharmaceuticals. Indeed, they are intended as active
ingredients for pharmaceuticals formulated to destroy such pathogens
as Staphylococcus aureus, and epidermidis, the latter of which it
completely destroys in a nutrient broth culture of about 1 million
organisms at 0.6 PPM, or Candida albercans, the vaginal yeast infection
at 2.5 PPM, and the AIDS virus at 18 PPM.
