WICHITA, Kan., Feb. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Bio-Communications Research Institute's (BCRI's) recent research study has found that high levels of vitamin C (ascorbate) inhibit the formation of new blood vessel growth to tumors. To grow, tumors rely on a high level of nutrients to flow to the tumor site. This nutrient flow is critical to tumor growth and is facilitated in the host body by the growth of new blood vessels. The new blood vessel growth process is known as angiogenesis. In tumor...

Teenage girls with higher vitamin D levels may be able to jump higher and faster than their peers with lower levels, British researchers found. Lead author Kate Ward of the University of Manchester said that not only does vitamin D work with calcium to keep bones strong, but researchers now believe teenage girls with higher levels of the vitamin may be able to jump higher and faster than girls with lower levels. The researchers collected vitamin D levels for 99 girls, ages 12-14. To test...

A new survey conducted in young females connects high vitamin C in the bloodstream with lower blood pressure. This finding "strongly suggests that vitamin C is specifically important in maintaining a healthy blood pressure," lead author Dr. Gladys Block, of the University of California, Berkeley, said. Prior data connected high plasma levels of vitamin C with healthier blood pressure in the middle-aged and older, usually with unhealthy blood pressure, Block and colleagues stated. The new...

In studies of cancer cells and mice, vitamin C appears to substantially reduce the effectiveness of anti-cancer drugs, U.S. researchers said. Dr. Mark L. Heaney of the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York said the same mechanism may affect patient outcomes, although this premise needs to be tested. Heaney and colleagues found that every chemotherapy drug tested did not work as well if cells were pretreated with vitamin C, as they did on untreated cancer cells. In the cell...

By Amy Donaldson Deseret News I woke up with a sore throat and a bad attitude last week. The sore throat was the first symptom, followed soon after by a runny nose and a lot of sneezing. And the raunchy mood resulted when I realized I was coming down with my second cold in less than a month. I do not have time to be sick! I went months without any kind of cold, and then to have two within weeks of each other, well, it was very discouraging. So I immediately began doubling my daily...

By WILLIAM TINNING VITAMIN C that is injected rather than swallowed could provide a new lifeline for cancer patients with a poor prognosis and few treatment options, according to new research. Scientists say the therapy halved the growth of aggressive tumours in mice, killing cancer cells while leaving healthy tissue unharmed. Tackling cancer with vitamin C would also have the added advantage of being less expensive, the research claims. The body usually keeps tight control of vitamin...

Researchers claim that a high dose injection of vitamin C was able to cut brain, ovarian and pancreatic tumors in half among laboratory mice involved in a recent study. Conversely, Cancer Research UK argues that other studies have shown that these large doses may actually interfere with cancer treatment. The team at the National Institutes of Health in Maryland suggested that the vitamin, also called ascorbate, could kill cancer cells in the laboratory. The successful trials with laboratory...

By JON VON RAOWITZ VITAMIN C that is injected rather than swallowed can destroy cancer, research shows. The therapy halved the growth of aggressive tumours in mice, killing cancer cells while leaving healthy tissue unharmed. It could provide a new lifeline for patients with a poor prognosis and few treatment options, scientists suggest. Tackling cancer with vitamin C would also have the added advantage of being cheap. Usually the body keeps a tight rein on vitamin C levels in the...

By Lyndsay Moss Health Correspondent INJECTIONS of vitamin C could halve the growth of cancerous tumours, research suggested yesterday. A study in the United States found that the vitamin could prove useful in treating cancers for which few other options currently exist. The breakthrough, which comes following tests on mice, follows decades of research into the potential of vitamin C in tackling cancer. However, experts warned that the benefits of the vitamin had yet to be...
