This is especially true in light of the suggested “remedy” of ingesting plant-based cannabinoids to correct the deficiency. Yet, scientific evidence supports the fact that this theory is no joke.

On the day I die a lot will happen.
A lot will change.
The world will be busy.
On the day I die, all the important appointments I made will be left unattended.

Vitamin C Does Reverse Cancer— Now It’s On Track For Approval As A Chemo Alternative
High-dose vitamin C does kill cancer—but only when it’s given intravenously. It’s now just a few steps away from being approved as a safe and effective cancer treatment alongside chemotherapy and radiation.

I am getting tired of using the “Fake News” meme when describing medical articles in the NYTs. But, this article is beyond ridiculous and I can think of no better way to describe it. This is another example of fake news and why we are in the health care mess we are in.
