Preventing Illness and Disease with Vitamin C

A good article, from educating us on the importance of Vitamin C as told by Dr Linus Pauling who work is still alive at the Linus Pauling Institute at Oregon State University where they do Micronutrient Research for Optimum Health. I take a daily dose of 2,125 mg of Vitamin C. I take Vitamin C at this amount to help with connective tissue health at my joints and for general anti-oxidant protection from free radical damage.

I like the Linus Pauling Institute (LPI) as they know that a quality nutritional supplement is key to optimal health. In fact LPI recommends "Avoid gimmicky marketing and high-priced supplements; buy U.S. Pharmacopeia (USP) grade supplements when possible. A “USP Verified” mark on the label ensures quality, purity, and potency of the supplement."

Linus Pauling discusses the vital importance of vitamin C in human health and disease, and why scurvy (vitamin C deficiency) is the most prevalent health problem of our time, underlying even heart disease as the #1 killer in the developed world.

Linus Carl Pauling (February 28, 1901 – August 19, 1994) was an American chemist, biochemist, peace activist, author, and educator. He was one of the most influential chemists in history and ranks among the most important scientists of the 20th century. Pauling was one of the founders of the fields of quantum chemistry and molecular biology.

For his scientific work, Pauling was awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1954. In 1962, for his peace activism, he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. This makes him the only person to be awarded two unshared Nobel Prizes. He is one of only four individuals to have won more than one Nobel Prize (the others being Marie Curie, John Bardeen, and Frederick Sanger). Pauling is one of only two people to be awarded Nobel Prizes in different fields (Chemistry and Peace), the other being Marie Curie (Chemistry and Physics).
