Survival is lengthened by
strengthen the collagen function of cellular adhesion, thereby slowing down the
invasion and spread of the cancer cells.
Colon cancer spreads mainly vegetatively unlike for example small cell
lung cancer with early and aggressive metastasis. Thus colon cancer was a good
choice for their
clinical trial. The uncompromised immune
system is also important. If they added
large dose (2 gm/day) of aspirin the results would like be even better. A third
adjunct would be hormone replacement
therapy, and the most important would be to starve the cancer with fasting and
ketogenic diet, since cancer metabolize glucose in a very inefficient anaerobic
process which produces 1/15th of the ATP that occurs in aerobic
metabolism using the citric acid cycle.
There are journal articles supporting all of these assertions. Thank
you pharma for putting profits before
people—the dictates of capitalism.

Probably all malignant tumors
liberate an enzyme, hyaluronidase, that causes the glycosaminogycans to be cut
into smaller molecules, thus weakening the intercellular cement… another
enzyme, collagenase, that causes the collagen fibrils to be split into small
molecules. Cameron and Douglas Torman,
on the basis of some chemical arguments [in 1970]. Suggested that an increased concentration
of vitamin C in the body would stimulate the normal cells to produce increased
amounts of the substance hyaluronidase inhibitor…… Linus Pauling point out that it is known that
vitamin C is required for the synthesis of collagen…Pauling
suggested that an intake of 10 grams of vitamin C per day be given to the
patients with advanced cancer. “ For most improvement becomes apparent between
the 5th to 10th day, which may be very transient, or it
may be for weeks or months, and in a few patients prolonged and accompanied by
such evidence of objective benefit to included permanent regress has been
induced,” p. xi-xii.
Carcinoma is a malignant tumor that arises
from the cells of any covering membrane.
Because such covering surfaces are the first to be exposed to
carcinogenic influences, carcinomas account for more than 90% of all
Adenocarcinoma indicates that the
tumor has arisen from some glandular structure and has retained some semblance
of glandular formation.
Sarcoma are tumors of the
supporting tissues, such as bone, cartilage, muscle, fibrous tissue, joint surfaces
and fat. They comprise less than 5% of all
malignancies. P. 20

And even in the best of hands, the
success rate is only about one in five.
One patient might receive some benefit, while the other four have been
rendered thoroughly miserable. To no advantage.
And even the one success is usually comparatively short lived,
frequently no more than a matter of months in the usual solid cancers… p. 68.
In 9154 and 1959 Dr. W. J.
McCormick, a Canadian physician... recognized that the generalized stromal
changes of scurvy (changes in the nature of the tissues) are identical with the
local stromal changes observed in the immediate vicinity of invading neoplastic
cells, and surmised that the nutrient (vitamin C) that is known to be capable
of preventing such generalized changes in scurvy might have similar effects in
cancer. The evidence that cancer
patients are almost invariable depleted of ascorbate lent support to this
view. P. 101.
Thus a goat the sized of a man
(weighing 70 kilograms, 154 pounds) synthesizes 13,000 mg of this vitamin each
day. For other species—mouse, rat, cat
dog, cow, squirrel, and even the house fly—the amount synthesized is 2,000 to
20,000 mg per day). The only resemble explanation of the fact that the smaller
amounts would lead to poorer health.
similar issue exists for diabetics who through a defect in vitamin C storage
are low in certain tissues that store it, and this affects negative the
production of collagen and thus is the major cause of the comorbidities
associated with diabetes. For more on
