Yeah... the kidney stone issue is brought up a whole lot but I have to say the fifty or so people I know who take over 10 grams of powdered c a day
have never had kidney stones... and neither have I, and I've taken a gram or three a day since a toddler, and there is some evidence it actually
protects against kidney stones (magnesium helps, too, if memory serves).
So correlation is not causation... and as we die without v-c and the science strongly indicates the daily allowances the FDA recommends is woefully
inadequate, especially considering modern diet, it's not a great reason to avoid it... though I know kidney stones are one of the most painful things
And I wanted to stress that the anti-cancer properties of v-c by itself is so-so, though I've spoken to many folks convinced IV v-c infusions beat
their cancers, but it is the new (since 2012) combination of c and that particular Maitake mushroom d'fraction that is so darned effective vs hard
cancers... so far.
But it's early into what shoe-string testing there is, and as there isn't a patent for that combo there likely will never be any big studies, but as
far as anecdotal reports go, it is very exciting.
