There is a credible connection between MSM and hair growth. One study looked at the effect of Methylsulfonylmethane MSM) on hair growth in mice. The researchers combined MAP (a form of vitamin C) at 7.5% and MSM at 10% and concluded that results were “comparable to or better than the result in the group treated with minoxidil 5%”.
The results in a cohort over 38,000 were so strong and compelling the authors stated: Healthcare professionals may promote intake of these antioxidants in healthy amounts in order to reduce the incidence of this type of malignancy
Published in the journal Cell Biology International, the study investigated both low and high doses of vitamin C and Niacin on stem cells tumors of the intestine. Different dosages produced opposite effects.
Thus, it was found that when taking vitamin C to create a concentration of 5-25 micromole/L of vitamins C and B3, which is a low dosage, there is a process of active reproduction of stem cells tumors of the intestine. At high dosages (creating concentrations of 100 to 1,000 micromoles) these stem cells are destroyed.
The Vitamin C Foundation calculates that continuous oral supplemental
oral intakes of vitamin C can achieve the study's reported cancer-lethal concentrations in the blood.
The normal lab range for vitamin C is 0.4 mg/dl to 1.5 mg/dl,
(23 to 85 μM/L).
The Indian study results indicate that a 100 μM concentration (1.76 mg/dl)
is the low end of the cancer-lethal range, or just above steady state.
Sustaining this level requires continuous vitamin C supplementation,
as long advocated by vitamin C experts Steve Hickey and Hilary Roberts, PhDs.
While intravenous vitamin C can exceed the 10,000 μM by 2.5 times (e.g. 440 mg/dl or 24,983.2 μM/L )
this is apparently suboptimal,
and it is difficult to keep people on constant intravenous vitamin C infusions.
The low range (5 to 25 μM) that promotes the growth of cancer stem cells equals a lab range of 0.08 to 0.44 mg/dl which is below normal and can easily be raised through regular vitamin C supplementation.
The answer to the question of what oral dosage is required is:
Note: The current government RDA for vitamin C, and the dosage recommendations currently from the Linus Pauling Institute, promote Cancer Stem Cell (CSC) proliferation that spawns malignacies. According to the findings of researchers Sen, et. al., the dosage for cancer patients needs to be much higher to avoid spawning new aggressive cancers.
The Sen study is published in the journal Cell Biology International. Note: Pauling and Robinson are vindicated! They were both right.
Federal Death Administration (FDA) Attacks Vitamin C Foundation
VitaminCFoundation.ORG's mission: Change FDA law that turns non-toxic vitamin C into a "drug" because we tell the truth and say that vitamin C prevents, mitigates and/or cures disease.
Government bureaucrats would rather see American's suffer and die than allow the Vitamin C Foundation tell the truth. The bureaucrats would probably counter that they are simply following the law. If so, the law is immoral and needs to change. Sign the Petition
The FDA law and its interpretation doesn't promote the general welfare, improperly regulates free speech, harms most Americans after draining their savings on dangerous and unnecessary health care, all the while feeding a corrupt medical system. Sign the Petition
In the spring of 2017, after more than 20 years online, the FDA sent us a warning letter. Our attorney's advised us that this web site cannot have links positive scientific studies about vitamin C if we also sponsor and have links to any vitamin C products.
Whose interests do you think the FDA is really protecting? Sign the Petition Maybe vitamin C does threaten the profitablity of medicine?
Non toxic substances that make people healthier are not drugs. Telling the truth should never be against Federal law.
Drugs should 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 hired Jonathan Emord and Associates to draft an amendmend to FDA law that 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

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.
