The Naysayers are WRONG on this topic.
1: Every single aspect of modern nutrition that actually works these days leans to a diet that more accurately reflects our "natural" diet. That
vitamin C was a much larger part of it in the early days of hominid evolution through the dawn of modern civilization should be very apparent.
2: We can't even begin to get into modern foragers in a world in which they inhabit the worst locations possible in the modern world driven deep into
jungles at best at worst for the majority pushed off into arid lands completely unlike normal habitations, I don't care where we look Native
Americans, Maori whomever every "tribe" is marginalized and world population over flows... a few Hundred years ago as example the Navajo here in
Arizona Might have still lived some of them around current reservation lands but the SCOPE of their foraging would have been vast and included all the
rivers near by, today they have only a huge slab of dirt if water flows to provide citrus it's not theirs at all. Those same "natives" would have
had all sorts of citrus that (if they didn't shop in supermarkets today) they would never even see, even in the deepest parts of the Amazon on Brazil
these people are isolated they don't "Get" the length of the Amazon they "get" whats around where they hide and that's a very stark contrast to
a "natural" setting
3: Studies are almost always impossibly inaccurate
And this is by far the biggest factor here. "Studies" haven't proved__________ is a meaningless assertion in regards to nutritional benefits
There are TWO ways to look at a failed study, The first is... 3 people of One Hundred took Mega doses of vitamin X and experienced miraculous healing
the other 97 did NOT OR,,, # people experienced miraculous healing what factor did we MISS on the other 97 or set of variables.
It is virtually IMPOSSIBLE to conduct a long term study and really understand why it works for a FEW but not the rest but the IMPORTANT factor is it
worked on some... You can do a 20 year study and get people to report once a month for 5.00 some basic things and you can screen them for the Obvious
NO SMOKERS because we know smoking reduces vitamin C
But the real problem is people aren't Rats in a cage... some mitigating factors of the human condition, well... people will LIE
Does vitamin C stop Cancer... sure I bet it does BUT will it stop Cancer when exposed to horrific issues which it can't possibly control?
Take 100 people...
2 Probably have Plutonium or Uranium in them from atomic tests They will get cancer no matter how much Vitamin c thye take because Vitamin C can't
Another 2 well they breathed in asbestos at some point
3 others took medications for conditions that were highly cancerous
another was exposed to jet fuel during the Iraqi war
2 others lived in NYC and the law required heavy duty pesticides to be sprayed in their apartment every month
Yet another Lied about doing Meth for 2 years
Another 3 had HPV
and 3 more had genetic conditions....
The thing is NOTHING can stop MAN CREATED CANCERS.... (well maybe not nothing but not vitamin C) But CAN vitamin C stop the natural formation of
cancer...I believe so, I have seen... miraculous effects in some people personally.
So the bottom line is in natural conditions these things do work and help
It wasn't until this century we SEE any large amounts of cancer prior it was very rare indeed, a healthy person that eats right maintains high levels
of what is needed has good oxygen flow etc, etc, yeah this stuff works
But no... it wont work if you forget to mention huffing 45 cans of paint when you were 15... or if you were raised in a radon filled basement or
things of that nature, genetic damage isn't so readily repaired.
You fry your Telomeres to zero, sure it will protect the last 2 cell divisions and that gives you 18 months to live lol so yeah it wont "work" that
way in any statistically significant way
But pursue it lifetime and avoid mitigating factors of toxic behavior it absolutely will
Is that EASY to do? NO rofl....
Not in the modern world dolphins have pcbs in them I mean come on.... but as part of an overall lifestyle of health this thread would be CORRECT you
can avoid a lot, there are ways to flush
Miracle Pill? Magic Bullet.... yeah for 3 in 100
But mainly there is no Magic Bullet there is a much larger picture but none of this thread is intrinsically wrong.
