Vitamin C holds a unique place in scientific and cultural history. In this book, a group of leading scientific research explore the myriad ways Vitamin C is employed during normal physiological function. This book also provides updates on recent uses ofVitamin C in cancer treatment through high dose intravenous therapies, the ways Vitamin C reduces or prevents sepsis and in the treatment of infectious disease, and the ways Vitamin C improves succesful stem cell transplantation, as well as other health implications.
