The bottom line it that the burden of proof is on those making the extraordinary claims.
burden of proof?
no, won't happen
why? no one can make money off it
why do you think most MDs are on your side?
fighting heart diease(top cause of death via CDC http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/fastats/leading-causes-of-death.htm
is a costly process because IT CAN BE
as kevin MD sayshttp://www.kevinmd.com/blog/2014/12/treating-heart-attacks-cost-much-money.html
medicine doesnt give a muck to find a cheap/easy solution to their golden goose, they want you to buy their drugs....they don't make money when you buy a jar of vit C pills,. right? why would they EVER say anything that would hurt their buisness?
like everything else, you gotta follow the money
(you think the beef industry willl ever say anything bad about meat?)
the science behind vitC and heart disease is pretty sound
it goes something like this
your arteries are made of collagen(type3)
so when you have high blood pressure or daily wear and tear, the arteries like anything else NEEDS to be repaired.
so the body needs collagen.....
humans/gunea pigs/few monkeys, can't make collagen from glucose because of e loss of GULO gene...so we have to make it otherwise WHICH REQUIRES vitamin C
so no vitamin C, no collagen,
no collagen, can't repair/upkeep arteries??
no, you can still repair arteries BUT with Lp(A) ie Lipoprotein(a)
LpA is a form of LDL cholesterol..
Lpa makes plaques, use pubmed to search and you'll find higher LpA, higher risk of CAD
so pauling says, we need Vit C, small doses every few hours to provide groundwork to make collagen( hydroxylase enzymes that perform these reactions require Vitamin C as a cofactor, and a deficiency in this vitamin results in impaired collagen synthesis)
and lysine/proline to bind to Lpa to prevent plaques from growing(and to make collagen)
HEre mercola sums it up(what I just said, bu more detail)http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2001/03/28/linus-pauling
guinea pigs dont make vit C, so we can use them to test out diets with and without vitC
The result is always the same.
When these animals are deprived of vitamin C they die a terrible scurvy death in a matter of weeks. When their vitamin C is limited to the U. S. RDA they live, but develop atherosclerosis. When fed roughly the human equivalent of 3 to 5 gm of vitamin C, the pigs thrive with no signs of atherosclerosis.
Disease in guinea pigs occurs in weeks, the human form of the disease usually takes decades to develop.  While differences are to be expected in animal experiments, the lesions produced by these experiments are remarkable for their similarity to the human lesion. http://www.paulingtherapy.com/science.htm
Thats what I know about vit C and heart disease
you need collagen, no collagen, you end up with plaques
Dr levy will tell you about Vit C and curing infectios disease and blah blah blah
I dont understand that stuff
IM on a vit C page and they report stuff constantly about vit C making them better
I"ve 2x knocked out a cold using a combo of
few grams vit C
2 grams liposyheric vit C
2-4 vit K2 capsules(lifeextension brand)
60 minutes reported how this dude, who was almost dead from swine flu, having 2 cloudy lungs, and lipo vit C got him betterhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VrhkoFcOMII

yes, there are more details such as
