A woman whose breast cancer spread to other parts claimed that IV vitamin C treatment has saved her life, CBS4bosting.com reported on Nov. 6.
The woman has subjected herself to conventional treatment, which left her debilitated and her doctor predicted she could not live over a year.
"I couldn't get off the couch, it was that terrible, so I decided I had to do something." Denise McCabe was quoted by cbs4boston.com as saying. She tried an alternative therapy - massive doses of vitamin C administrated intravenously.
To her amazement, just after a few sessions, $100 per session, according to the report, Dennis felt better and had a little more energy. She claimed that her cancer markers suddenly started dropping, indicating that vitamin C kills cancer cells.
Dr. Gelnn Rothfeld, an Arlington physician who offers his patients intravenous vitamin C treatment said, according to the report, that the key to the good results is the delivery method, which gets a dose of vitamin C equivalent of 500 oranges.
Rothfeld was quoted by cbs4boston.com as saying that "it's fairly unquestioned in science that when you use vitamin C in very doses in a test tube, it kills cancer cells."
Dr. Richard Penson, an oncologist (cancer physician) like many conventional doctors, do not believe that vitamin C could kill cancer cells in humans, saying that lab results often do not translate to success in humans, cbs4boston.com reported.
Dr. Penson may not be familiar with the research of vitamin C on its anticancer effect, commented a scientist, affiliated with foodconsumer.org who did not want to be named. He said evidence suggested that vitamin C may be used at least as a supportive cancer treatment.
A recent study conducted by Dr. Mark Levine and colleagues at the National Institute of Diabetes & Digestive & Kidney Disease, and published in the Sept. 12-16 2005 issue of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences suggested high doses of vitamin C administered intravenously may help fight cancer.
Earlier studies have demonstrated that high doses of vitamin C help treat certain types of cancers. Dr. Linus Pauling, who won two Nobel prizes in chemistry and peace, said his study and others' found high doses of oral vitamin C used along with other treatments proved to make patients live much longer.
Some alternative clinics have long adopted this alternative approach to treating cancers. Envita Natural Medical Center is one of a few in the country that offers the IV vitamin C treatment.
Unlike many other anticancer drugs, vitamin C is not toxic to healthy cells.
This year, a Texas girl with lymphomas received IV vitamin C treatment somewhere is now in remission although her conventional doctor claimed six month ago that she could not live over two months if she failed to receive conventional treatments.
