Mar 09, 2012 rated it it was amazing
This book is ESSENTIAL for all doctors and for anyone with a serious health issue or that wants to avoid having one in the future.

It is very detailed and yet easy to read for patients and for doctors, it contains excellent historical and up-to-date information, has over 1200 scientific references and is also the only vitamin C book I am aware of that talks in depth about the new liposomal vitamin C products as well as all the other forms.

This last point is key, as Dr Levy explains that the best

Just learning that humans and pigs were about the only animals that don't make their own vitamin C (and all of the implications of this) would have been worth reading this book. Most of the book deals with experiences of MD's who have used vitamin C to vastly improve or cure medical ailments related to disease or venoms since the early 20th century in mostly humans.
Though somewhat tedious reading for the laywoman, I have lots of new questions for Big Pharmacy. Also, given that the ability to mak

This very well referenced and documented book is a must read for all. I had been a big proponent of Vitamin C before but after reading the various case studies from physician after physician it has reinforced my belief that Vitamin C is powerful and not used enough by conventional medical doctors but then are we to be surprised? It's inexpensive and can't be patented so the huge pharmaceutical companies can't be bothered. ...more

An average book in terms of science. Full of papers (great), but super biased and apologist in one direction - i.e. "vitamin C is the best thing ever". Which is kind of is, but still, the book could be a bit more nuanced. On the other hand, given how egregiously little vitamin C is used in medicine, and the potential it has, the tone of the book is almost justified. We do need to kick the system and increase the use of this amazing micronutrient instead of pushing the current hottest new drug.

Very difficult read since it really is mostly addressed to the medical professional. Lots of references for everything he writes.

This is a useful read, with many research studies cited. My key takeaways are that vitamin c is a very important antioxidant to take, and that it is okay to take in huge doses, and that there is little fear of problems such as kidney stones unless you have other pre-existing conditions, since many factors contribute to kidney stones - not vitamin c alone.

For those who fear stomach upset, you can take sodium ascorbate. Liposomal vitamin c apparently delivers vitamin c very well, if not better tha

You must have a really strong need/desire to read this book. It is very technical and would appear monotonous for the uninitiated lay person. If you are researching for yourself/family or client then take your time. It appears to be a series of medical articles and reports to show the efficacy of Vitamin C for various medical maladies.

Book extremely medical with a lot of reference. Very little practical application for average user. Does not tell you what dosage for normal use. Not worth the money!

Lots of studies of why it's a good idea to increase vitamin C in your body as much as possible.
I've been tracking my vitamin C levels over the past 6 years. Only when I dropped meat and dairy from my diet, my Vitamin C levels sky-rocketed. That without supplementation!
The reason is that Vitamin C is water soluble, and a supplement will only spike your levels, and within an hour or so it will be flushed out of your system. But if you eat a cabbage for example, the fiber will make sure to only re

This book is fascinating! Especially the idea that as diseases (both viral and bacterial) or toxins deplete the body's stores of Vitamin C, it basically creates a scurvy-like state in the body. Scurvy is a condition that comes from 0 vitamin C in the body's plasma and cells over a period of months. It is a hemolytic condition in which the body starts to bleed, starting with the capillaries. As scurvy advances, it can turn into hemorrhaging, which, interestingly, is a symptom of advanced stages o ...more

This book is a must read for anyone interested in their health. Thomas Levy has done an excellent job of reviewing over 1200 research papers and the actual utilization of vitamin C to cure diseases by doctors over the past 60 years. He translates all this medical and scientific language into lay terms that makes it easy to understand.
This book gives you the real juice on Vitamin C and why it is good for you.
