I read the other two rewiews and am still shaking my head.
This book is not a diet book. It is a book for those that suffer a chronic illness or disease.
It is well written as to give you a total background and history of Vit C. I have a daughter that has been diagnosed with a rare form on cancer. PNET sarcoma. Of course she went through chemo and they ( conventional medical doctors ) where more concerned about the tumor than they were with saving her life. This book has been a blessing. It has been a long road to get a doctor to write a perscription for Vit C IV, for fear of FDA ramifications. New law that hasn't even been passed Dietary Supplement Labeling Act of 2011 (S. 1310).
This is a must read, for everyone. The two biggest killers today are heart disease and cancer. Since my daughter has been diagnosed everyone askes "What can we do". I tell them to read this book.
