A new way of looking at scurvy we are not all alike and our requirements for vitamin C may differ...
Foundation Press Release
FDA Attacks Drive Foundation's New MissionVitaminCFoundation.ORG has a new mission,
Currently, in the United States, federal law creates drugs out of nondrugs by virtue of what is said online. Federal law forced us to evicerate 20+ years of scientific information about vitamin C. This is how long we have been dissemenating information about Vitamin C through this web site. The FDA sent us a warning letter. Foundation attorney's tell us that this web site cannot have links to any positive scientific studies about vitamin C if we also sponsor and have links to any vitamin C products.
This law needs to change. Telling the truth should never be against the law.
If the .ORG web site cannot say anything about the health benefits of vitamin C, by government edict, its mission will now be devoted to Changing the *U.S. Federal law that turns "chicken soup" into a drug when a company selling chicken soup says online that it can cure colds.
The Vitamin C Foundation will spearhead the effort to change the federal law that classifies a food a drug because it "prevents, mitigates, treats or cures."
Drugs would be drugs because taking them might otherwise harm people without regulation.
Chicken Soup is not a drug, no matter what any company selling it says.
The Foundation has hired Jonathan Emord and Associates to help us draft the petition to alter the wording of the Federal Food and Drug act.
No Deaths from ANY Vitamin
Zero Fatalities from Any Dietary Supplement, e.g. Minerals, Vitamins, Amino Acids, Herbs, Homeopathic Remedies
Additionally, there were zero deaths from any amino acid or herbal product. This means no deaths at all from blue cohosh, echinacea, ginkgo biloba, ginseng, kava kava, St. John's wort, valerian, yohimbe, Asian medicines, ayurvedic medicines, or any other botanical. There were zero deaths from creatine, blue-green algae, glucosamine, chondroitin, melatonin, or any homeopathic remedy.
Furthermore, there were zero deaths from any dietary mineral supplement. This means there were no fatalities from calcium, magnesium, chromium, zinc, colloidal silver, selenium, iron, or multimineral supplements. Reported in the "Electrolyte and Mineral" category were two fatalities from the medical use of "Sodium and sodium salts." These are not dietary supplements.
The U.S. National Poison Data System is "the only comprehensive, near real-time, poisoning surveillance database in the United States. In 2013, poison professionals at the nation's 55 poison centers managed about 2.2 million human poison exposures, with children younger than 6 accounting for about half of all poison exposure cases."
Over half of the U.S. population takes daily nutritional supplements. Even if each of those people took only one single tablet daily, that makes 154,000,000 individual doses per day, for a total of over 56 billion doses annually. Since many persons take more than just one vitamin or mineral tablet, the numbers are considerably higher, and the safety of nutritional supplements is all the more remarkable

Looking for Dr. Robert Cathcart's ORTHOMED Web Site?After Dr. Robert Cathcart, III, MD passed, his web domain was purchased by a firm in Germany. Fortunately, Dr. Cathcart had the foresight to ask the Foundation to copy his entire domain to our web site.
Dr. Cathcart's original web site now starts from www.orthomed.com/. In other words, prefix this website's domain to the old web addresses/links.
For example, Dr. Cathcart's famous TITRATING TO BOWEL TOLERANCE paper now located www.orthomed.com/titrate.html

What if All Vitamin C Isn't Created Equal?Vitamin C comes in many forms. The most common form of vitamin C is Ascorbic Acid (Hydrogen Ascorbate). Vitamin C does not have to be acidic. It is also found in various alkaline forms; the mineral ascorbates: e.g. Sodium Ascorbate, Calcium Ascorbate, Magnesium Ascorbate, Potassium Ascorbate, etc.
(Note ascorbic acid is a weak acid, having about the same acidity as a cola soft drink)
Vitamin C also comes in different shapes in three-dimensional space. The different shapes of the ascorbate fraction have the same atoms, but the atoms are arranged differently, much like the right hand is the same but different than the left hand. This is called chirality in chemistry; Linus Pauling explained that there are exactly four different shapes ("sterioisomers") of the ascorbate ion, and they are L-ascorbate, D-ascorbate, LD-ascorbate and DL-ascorbate.
Thanks to Linus Pauling we know that only the L-ascorbate shape has vitamin C activity, i.e. only the L- shape can cure the vitamin C deficiency disease scurvy.

The Vitamin A and Vitamin D Controversy
The Cod Liver Oil Debate (from Weston-Price) Vitamin A is not a Vitamin D Antagonist.
Since vitamin A is required as a signaling partner with vitamin D, vitamin D will increase the turnover of vitamin A. If vitamin A is provided in excess, the results are generally beneficial. Excess vitamin A is stored in the liver. However, when the liver's storage capacity is exceeded, the overload of vitamin A causes the cells to burst, damaging the liver and releasing storage forms of vitamin A into the systemic circulation that do not belong there. By increasing the utilization of vitamin A, vitamin D can help prevent vitamin A toxicity.
If vitamin A is in short supply, on the other hand, the results can be detrimental. By .stealing. all of the vitamin A needed to use for vitamin D specific functions, the body will not have enough vitamin A left to support the many other functions for which it is needed.this may partially explain the toxic effects of excess vitamin D.
And now for something completely different
Dr. Marvin Antelman telephoned Owen frequently from Israel. During these calls, Dr. Antelman expressed interest in studying Pauling's vitamin C therapy in heart patients in Israel.
Unknown to Owen, at that time, was Dr. Antelman's history curing AIDS with the following invention.
Is patent 5,336,499 the general antidote for all bio warfare weapons? i.e. is it the cure for Lyme?
United States Patent 5,336,499 Antelman August 9, 1994 Molecular crystal device for pharmaceuticals Abstract A novel molecular scale device is described which is bactericidal, fungicidal, viricidal and algicidal. The anti-pathogenic properties of the device are attributed to electron activity indigenous to diamagnetic semiconducting crystals of tetrasilver tetroxide (Ag.sub.4 O.sub.4) which contains two monovalent and two trivalent silver ions in each molecular crystal. When the crystals are activated with an oxidizing agent, they release electrons equivalent to 6.4.times.10. sup.-19 watts per molecule which in effect electrocute pathogens. A multitude of these devices are effective at such low concentrations as 0.3 PPM used as preservatives in a variety of formulations ranging from cosmetics to pharmaceuticals. Indeed, they are intended as active ingredients for pharmaceuticals formulated to destroy such pathogens as Staphylococcus aureus, and epidermidis, the latter of which it completely destroys in a nutrient broth culture of about 1 million organisms at 0.6 PPM, or Candida albercans, the vaginal yeast infection at 2.5 PPM, and the AIDS virus at 18 PPM.
