Clinical reports suggest that taking vitamin C almost to bowel tolerance every day (in divided doses) will help to protect you against all viruses. Reports by independent physicians have been consistent for decades. However, the doctors also stipulated most emphatically that the dose and the way you take it must be right - or it will not work.
There is no direct placebo controlled "evidence" that massive doses of vitamin C will work on Ebola, and nobody would volunteer to take part in that study. But massive doses are reported to have helped against every virus it has been pitched against. This includes Polio, Dengue and AIDS, and it even makes vaccination work better. In the 1980s when no other treatment was available it was reported that full blown AIDS could be reversed and the patient brought back to reasonable health
To have a reasonable chance of avoiding a major viral infection, a daily intake of at least 10 grams of ascorbic acid is needed. The idea is to start low, taking say 500 -1,000 mg four times a day. Build up the intake to close to bowel tolerance; increased wind and large soft stools will occur before diarrhea signals that bowel tolerance has been exceeded. At this stage, back off the dose a little, to a reasonably comfortable level.
At the first hint of an infection - feeling unwell, itchy throat, fatigue, and so on - take more ascorbic acid. If the hint of impending sickness is mild, take perhaps 5 grams every half hour or even more frequently. Anything more than a hint of infection, take as large a dose as you feel could be tolerated and follow this by taking 5 grams every half hour. The rule is to take as much as you can without going over the tolerated level: you will probably be taking too little, even though you are trying hard to take a massive dose.
Can Vitamin C Cure Ebola?

I don't know how people can take vitamin c pills. If I drink OJ for breakfast more than two days in a row an acquaintance of mine named Bernie Butt comes to visit me. Same guy comes over if I try taking anything with any vitamin c in it. I also break out on the corner of my mouth, almost like a herpes symptom but it is not related.
I do not like Bernie Butt much, he needs to stay away. Some people need vitamin C supplements, some don't because they can cause side effects.

I take Vitamin C regularly, promote ultra-high doses as curative and think Linus Pauling did more for our health than anyone since. But I consider your question and approach to be irresponsible in the extreme.
Here's hoping NOBODY but NOBODY buys into such bs.
Just to correct you: This is not my question or approach. The question and theory are a result to leading Vitamin C doctors and researchers. I had the same theory, but then they published the same theory and I posted it.
