Vitamin C Can Help Treat Cancer? Here’s an Expert Response

Vitamin C is good for maintaining endurance. The use of vitamin C is also linked as a supporter of cancer treatment. Prof Margreet Vissers, BSc Hons, MSc, PhD from the Center for Free Radical Research Department of Pathology, University of Otago, Christchurch says the use of vitamin C in the treatment of cancer is still controversial. Although, there is a hypothesis that can support it
Consumption of vitamin C that is inserted into the body through injections can form a hypoxia-inducable factor (HIF) 1 that allows blood vessels in cancer cells to die so that tumor growth slows, “” Prof. Vissers at the Faculty of Medicine, University of Indonesia (FKUI), Salemba, Jakarta, Friday (21/08/2015).
“However, it is not certain whether the use of vitamin C is really effective to inhibit the growth of cancer cells because until now there is no scientific evidence what else is officially published in scientific journals,” “continued Prof. Vissers.Ia tells, there is a a case study in which a 45-year-old breast cancer patient was given vitamin C injections twice a week at a dose of 50 grams per session. At that time, the patient also underwent chemotherapy. After four weeks of injection of vitamin C, the patient feels the difference.

Home from the hospital, the child asked him to do vitamin C therapy, the cop improved his condition even up to 2 years, “” added Prof. Vissers.Meski so, Prof. Vissers can not be sure what vitamin C therapy is recommended in cancer patients because it does not exist scientific evidence.
