Vitamin C Spotlight

Dr Linus Pauling, often known as the ‘Father of Vitamin C’ and twice awarded the Nobel Prize (both unshared – a record), declared that large intakes of up to 10 g of the vitamin complex each day aids anti-cancer activity within the body and also assists in repairing damaged arteries and removing arterial plaque (atherosclerosis) for heart disease sufferers. Pauling was largely derided for making these statements yet lived to be 94.
