Vitamin C could treat cancer: High dose of substance found in LEMONS kills deadly cells – Express.co.uk
Experts said when a high dose of vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is injected into the bloodstream, it can cause damage to tumour cells.
The researchers, from the US, said injecting vitamin C creates blood levels which results said are 100 to 500 times higher than the levels seen after the vitamin is eaten.
The vitamin is found in fruit and vegetables, but experts said it is broken down too quickly by the digestive system to be effective.
Vitamin C is absorbed by cells where it breaks down into hydrogen peroxide, which is capable of damaging body tissue and DNA.
