In 1935 Dr. Claus W. Jungeblut, MD at Columbia University published his success in treating polio (virus) with high doses of Vitamin C. In 1947 he published his findings that many diseases, including cardiovascular disease, were related to Vitamin C deficiency. In the 1950’s he published his finding that smoking one cigarette consumed 125 mg of Vitamin C.
In 1940 Drs. Evan and Wilfred Shute published their success using high dose Vitamin E to prevent fibroids and endometriosis. They also treated over 30,000 patients with cardiovascular disease with high dose Vitamin E.
The next time that a health professional tells you that vitamins are a waste of money, just compassionately recognize they are behind in their continuing education. : )
