Polymiositis - illness and return


Linus Pauling, the double Nobel prize winning chemist and peace activist, advocated what are considered very large doses of vitamin C to optimize health and increase longevity. He based his conclusions on studies showing all other animals that produce their own vitamin C synthesize very large amounts, far larger than what most human beings now consume. For people who are ill, this can be on the order of 50g to 100g a day, depending on how sick you are. I currently take about 20g a day, divided throughout the day. Since I started doing this about 2 years ago, I haven’t had a cold or been seriously ill. You can find out more in his book “How to Live Longer and Feel Better”, and also at the Vitamin C Foundation website
