Intravenous Vitamin C may Kill Lymphoma Cells

Now this is a story that could be twisted so you'll buy lots of vitamin supplements. Don't be fooled by anyone.

A study published this week by lab researchers at the US National Institutes of Health indicates that Vitamin C can promote the formation of Hydrogen Peroxide in the lab (and supposedly in the bloodstream) and that this may kill cancer cells like lymphoma. This could lead to some exciting new forms of treatment.

But the Vitamin C would have to be injected into the bloodstream, the amounts you get when you digest supplements is not the same. Before you get your syringe, this is still experimental/lab stuff. If you feel that Vitamin C may benefit you anyway, do talk to your own doctors. If additional studies advance on this, I'll publish more here.
