Vitamin C is helping Chinese coronavirus patients, but the mainstream media won’t cover it because so-called “journalists” are all pharma whores
(Natural News) Any time a natural treatment shows some promise in addressing health concerns, those who stand to profit from selling pharmaceuticals start working overtime to ensure that the news is marginalized. That is certainly the case right now when it comes to vitamin C and its potential to help people suffering from coronavirus.
Just as stories are starting to emerge from China about how well vitamin C is working on patients with pneumonia, news feeds and search results are being overrun with stories warning people about the dangers of megadoses of vitamin C. And while no one would advocate injecting yourself with the vitamin at home, the truth is that even relatively small doses of the vitamin, like those you’d find in a multivitamin, are having an impact.
While some websites try to dismiss this as “fake news,” the truth is that many of those who are singing the praises of vitamin C are highly qualified and experienced medical doctors who have read the studies and understand the science behind them – and many of them have seen the positive results firsthand.
One group that has been reporting nonstop on this matter is the Orthomolecular Medicine News Service, whose editorial board is composed of dozens of physicians, health professionals and academics.
As they’ve been reporting, the biggest danger of novel coronavirus is seen when it progresses to SARS and pneumonia. That’s where vitamin C can come in handy. As a matter of fact, doctors have been using it since the 1940s to fight viral pneumonia.
In case you have any doubts, consider the official statement made by the Xi’an Jiaotong University Second Hospital in China, which recounted how four patients with severe coronavirus-related pneumonia had recovered from it and a further eight had already been discharged from their hospital. They said high doses of vitamin C brought about good results in clinical applications, and they believe it should be given to patients who have severe pneumonia as quickly as possible after they’ve been admitted to the hospital.
