Cholesterol, hardening of arteries, viral infections, heavy metal
detoxification, pollution, wound healing, stress, liver disease, fever,

Why you need Vitamin C
Humans cannot make vitamin C. We must get all our Vitamin C from our food.
However cooking food according to a study done in Ireland destroys about 80% of
the Vitamin C in food. If that wasn't enough consider this pollution and stress
use up vitamin C in a flash. For example according to Know Your Nutrition
by Linda Clark a glass full of orange juice having about 100 mg. of Vitamin C
can be consumed as follows "One cigarette uses up 25mg., and air pollution, as
well as stress, more than removes the rest from the body." Linda further states
that "Vitamin C is stored in your adrenal glands. Any kind of stress-a fight
with your husband or wife, an emotional shock or worry about a child, overdue
bills, or whatever-destroys all of the vitamin C in your adrenals in seconds!
the miracles that vitamin C can accomplish are not accomplished with a
drop-in-the-bucket dosage, but in massive amounts."
Vitamin C Stories
boys were exposed to pesticide poisoning from a spray plan. One received little
exposure and was released. He (Dr. Klenner) treated the second boy with massive
doese of vitamin C and the boy recovered. The third boy went to another doctor
who applied different treatment and the boy died."
"One of the most startling cases of all was that of a four-year-old girl who
received a snake bite on her leg. When she was brought to Dr. Klenner's office,
she was crying from pain and vomiting. While Dr. Klenner waited twenty-five
minutes for an antivenom skin test reaction, he gave her an injection of 4,000
mg. of vitamin C. Before the antivenom had been administered, the child had
stopped crying and vomiting and was laughing and drinking a glass of orange
juice. She said, "Come on, Daddy, let's go home. I'm alright now." "
