Smorgasbord Health 2017 – Latest research -Vitamin C and Cancer

Smorgasbord Health 2017

I spend quite a bit of my time reading research articles on the nutrients that we need and this article caught my eye about Vitamin C.

Vitamin C breakthrough discovery: Low-cost nutrient halts growth of cancer stem cells… 1000% more effective than cancer drug… peer-reviewed science confirms powerful effects

(Natural News) An exciting medical breakthrough published in the science journal Oncotarget has discovered the astonishing ability of concentrated vitamin C to halt the growth of cancer tumor stem cells.

The study, conducted at the University of Salford in Manchester — (see full text of the study at this link) — tested the impact on cancer stem cell metabolism for seven substances:

Three natural substances, including vitamin C
Three experimental pharmaceuticals
One clinical drug currently in widespread use

The study’s astonishing results reveal “the first evidence that Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) can be used to target and kill cancer stem cells (CSCs), the cells responsible for fuelling fatal tumours,” reports the flagship science publisher Alpha Galileo.

Find out more about the research into how Vitamin C found to work up to 10 times better than a cancer pharmaceutical:

About Smorgasbord - Variety is the Spice of Life.

My name is Sally Cronin and I am doing what I love.. Writing. Books, short stories, Haiku and blog posts. My previous jobs are only relevant in as much as they have gifted me with a wonderful filing cabinet of memories and experiences which are very useful when putting pen to paper. I move between non-fiction health books and posts and fairy stories, romance and humour. I love variety which is why I called my blog Smorgasbord Invitation and you will find a wide range of subjects. You can find the whole story here. Find out more at

  2. Sally: Together with my father, I am a firm believer in this research. In 2010 my mother, a long-term COPD patient was diagnosed with stage 2 lung cancer. Despite pressure from many physicians, she opted to forgo all cancer treatment to live her last (6) months free from the miserable effects of chemotherapy and radiation. She was treated at home with her normal COPD drugs plus Vitamin C: nothing more. During that time she traveled a bit, enjoyed the beauty of the outdoors, read books, saw movies, laughed and most importantly, LIVED life on her own terms. A few days prior to her death an X-ray showed that that the cancerous tumor in her lung had not grown even a centimeter. She died from COPD, not lung cancer. Vitamin C may not be for every cancer patient, but I do believe it certainly can’t hurt.

    Thank you for this most important information.

    • Thank you Kim for sharing your mother’s story. Obviously this is still a treatment that needs to be monitored by a doctor as the Vitamin C in in concentrated form but as you know I am a firm believer in working with the body not against it and whilst many thousands of lives have been saved with conventional treatments there is rarely any stories about the failures of that medicine and those where a combination therapy has been successful. The more knowledge we have the more we can question and expect the right treatment for our diseases. ♥

    For anyone who is or may be touched by cancer in the future, please read Sally’s important post about the latest research on Vitamin C therapy.

    In 2010 my mother, a COPD patient who was diagnosed with lung cancer decided against the rigorous treatments of chemotherapy and radiation. Instead, she added large doses of Vitamin C to her diet. Mother lived the best life possible for her remaining six months. She traveled a bit, enjoyed friends & family, saw the latest movies, read books and felt the sunshine of the outdoors. Prior to her death of COPD, the doctors noted that the tumor in her lung had not grown even a centimeter!

  4. It would be brilliant if future research can confirm the study Sally. What a difference it would make for the future and what a tragedy for all those already gone.

  5. If it hadn’t been for the Mayo Clinic and their erroneous reports, more studies might have been conducted 40 years ago on the efficacy of vitamin C in treating cancer. Makes you wonder if the MC wasn’t in cahoots with big pharma at the time, who have periodically over the last several decades tried to ban vitamins as OTCs here in the U.S. But the veil is being lifted on cosmic knowledge, and we’ll be seeing more revealing information being publicized on many topics over the next few decades. Thanks for sharing this, Sally 💚

    • Thanls for highlighting that Tina I never realised research was being done so long ago… Do you remember years ago there used to be a Dr Lelord Kordell (I think) who was a great advocated of big doses of vitamins. I don’t know much about him but My dad followed him slavishly… Kordell I seem to remember looked young for his age and come to think of it so did my dad until he stopped taking the vitamins!

      • Welcome, Paul. Kordell was a contemporary of Pauling. Don’t know if they actually knew each other. If I recall correctly, Kordell practiced out of Beverly Hills and had several celebrities as clients. Your dad could have been a poster boy for vitamin therapy 🙂

  6. Brilliant share Sal. As we both know only so much Vitamin C can be ingested before setting off diahrea and the doses required are better suited by IV. I learned all about this when hub had Stage 4 prostrate cancer and we had to wait 2 months before his radiation began. We weren’t about to wait and let the beast grow. As soon as we found out, I had him to the naturopath, who incidentally runs an alternative cancer clinic and he began mega doses (50,000 milligrams) of Vitamin C IV drip twice a week until radiation and once a week thereafter for a few months. And grateful to report he is still cancer free 7 years later. ❤
