Vitamin C May Help Reduce Cancerous Tumors

A new study finds high dose injections of Vitamin C can reduce cancerous tumors by half.

And what's more -- the treatment does not harm healthy cells, meaning
There are fewer difficult side-effects, often experienced with traditional cancer treatments like chemo and radiation.

Go home and die. That's what doctors told 59 year old Arlindo Olivera.
His lung cancer was so advanced, it had spread to his brain and doctors
Said there was nothing they could do. Today, Arlindo is cancer free.

Arlindo believes his cancer is gone because of Vitamin C treatment.

Dr. Scott Greenberg says he has successfully treated many people with
Vitamin C infusions, including Arlindo.

Some doctors believe Vitamin C treatment works by killing the cancer
cells.

Researchers at the national institutes of health say it may also work as
An anti-oxidant protecting cells from the damage of free radicals.

The national institutes of health study treated mice with aggressive brain, ovarian and pancreatic tumors.
Tumor growth and weight was reduced by 41 to 53 percent and the brain cancer stopped spreading.
Doctor Greenberg says it only works in very high intravenous doses and can be used along with traditional chemo and radiation.
He says it's a valuable option for those who don't respond to other treatment.

Arlindo continues to be cancer free.
The treatment is not covered by insurance, but costs considerably less
Than standard chemotherapy or radiation.
It's about 125 dollars per treatment versus several thousand dollars.

    My husband has lung cancer that has spread to his liver, is there a doctor in Ohio that does this treatment?

    I too am interested in where Dr Greenberg is located as my cousin too has lung cancer and it has spread. Is he local? Does he have an email address or phone number where he can be contacted?? Are there local doctors who can do this procedure??

    Thank you so much for this information! Where is Dr. Greenberg located? My 42 year old friend is suffering from lung cancer and I'm so interested to find a doctor who will believe in this treatment and be open to these new medical findings. Is Dr. Greenberg local? Thank you for the much needed hope. Many people who have this disease have never even smoked and it is one of the smallest funded in terms of research.
