Dr. Levy tells the story of two boys playing hide and go seek in a cornfield, who were sprayed with a powerful pesticide, parathion.
One boy was taken to the local ER and passed away. The other was taken to a practitioner of Vitamin C therapy and was injected intravenously with 100,000mg of Vitamin C, and went home for supper.
This book documents the uses of large-dose Vitamin C therapy upon disease and poisoning. I personally take a big dose of the pills when I just don't feel right.
So the lesson is that there isa tipping point where some vitamin C is helpful, but where the right amount cures.
Another aspect of the book that is extremely important is what vitamin C can be used for. Basically anything viral, many bacterial infections, toxins, poisonings, and more. There are many case histories included. When the author wrote the book, the principle means of getting stellar results was to use intravenous (IV) and venous injected vitamin C along with oral vitamin C powders. In this latest edition of the book, Dr Levy introduces Lypo-Spheric Vitamin C at the end of the book and touts that it is more efficacious than IV C (with some reservations). For example, 5 g Lypo-Spheric is equivalent to 100 g IV vitamin C and 10 g Lypo equivalent to 250 g IV C. Dr Levy became involved with LivOn Labs Lypo-Spheric Vitamin C well after he had written the earlier editions of this book. The story is online.
After reading this book, the vitamin-nutrient detractors' lies lay exposed in front of me and that was very heartening. I can now hold my head high and with full confidence tell my contrarian physician that he is wrong. I recommend this book highly for all those who want to take responsibility for their own health and not succumb to the scare mongering of the vendors of poisonous concoctions.
My only reservation is that the book does not address the issue of congestive heart disease so eminently attacked by Drs. Mathis Rath and Linus Pauling. While this is only one disease left out among the many that are addressed, it is a huge epidemic and should have been dealt with quite extensively. This is the reason for my 4 star rating. But for that this book gets 5 stars from me.
