Cancer and Vitamin C: A Discussion of the Nature, Causes, Prevention, and Treatment of Cancer With Special Reference to the Value of Vitamin C, The 21st-Century Edition
Cancer and Vitamin C explains the nature and known causes of one of the world s most feared and widespread diseases. It also weighs the value and limitations of various modes of treatment, including surgery, chemotherapy, immunotherapy and hormone therapy. Ewan Cameron and Linus Pauling focus on the use of vitamin C as an adjunct therapy, and they build their argument with clinical trials and case studies spanning the years 1979 to 1993. The 2lst-Century Edition, updated by Stephen Lawson, presents the pioneering material from the first two editions and summarizes the recent molecular and clinical research, beginning with a brief review of the work of Mark Levine and his colleagues at the National Institutes of Health and then discussing clinical studies conducted at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, the Cleveland Clinic Foundation, the University of Kansas Medical Center, McGill University, the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and other medical centers around the world. Now available in Russian and Japanese editions, Cancer and Vitamin C remains the most detailed work extant on the use and value of ascorbic acid as a supportive therapy in the treatment of cancerous neoplasms.
