"The evidence unequivocally shows that mega-gram doses of vitamin C can prevent and cure a vast list of conditions that plague mankind. It is both inexpensive and completely safe. My conclusion: vitamin C is THE 'Primal Panacea.'" -- Dr. Thomas E. Levy, M.D.
“I have NEVER seen a patient that Vitamin C would not benefit.” -- Dr. Frederick Klenner, M.D.
