They're doctors because they usually know better than us. If you're going to tell a doctor what to do, have strong supporting evidence.
How about the fact that if you have a painful joint injury, like a sprain, the doctor will recommend NSAIDs.
(Ibuprofen, tylenol, Aleve, Advil, Motrin, etc, etc, etc)
Yet it's been scientifically proven that NSAIDs destroy both bone and cartilage. Yea...the docs know better!

Who said it doesn't work?
The body needs vitamin c.
What I'm saying, well asking, is how did vitamin c drain this mans lungs?
Answer that if you can.
Ascorbate concentrations over renal re-absorption threshold pass freely into the urine and are excreted. At high dietary doses (corresponding to several hundred mg/day in humans) ascorbate is accumulated in the body until the plasma levels reach the renal resorption threshold, which is about 1.5 mg/dL in men and 1.3 mg/dL in women. Concentrations in the plasma larger than this value (thought to represent body saturation) are rapidly excreted in the urine with a half-life of about 30 minutes.
