Re: Try to take only whole food Vitamin C-- very important

Hey, what's a little controversey gonna hurt?

Just as a lay person who's been increasingly questioning the source of C/Ascorbic I've been using for many years, the synthetic versus natural question is on my mind moreso every day. I admit to not having read the entire post, yet - lotta stuff there, but the part about the condition of Pauling when he died does ring true with other's who've been saying synthetic C derrives it's benefit at the expense of sapping the health-giving qualities of the bones. I have two questions from this perspective.

1 - I believe Pauling was in his late 80s or early 90s when he died, and this after a pretty decent number of years (30-40-50?) of supposedly consuming a daily regiment of mega C coupled with other vitamins. I'm not sure but apparently he'd been in pretty good health up until the last few years. Is it conceivable that despite the way in which synthetic C accomplishes health benefits in the (relative) short term, that in the long term, at least for some people, it may be a worthwhile tradeoff?

2- Are you at all familiar with the earlier work (prior to Pauling) of Klenner, he of IV-C fame? Again, I'm not sure but am pretty sure that the source of sodium ascorbate he used in solution for IV and or injection was from synthetic processing / isolation, not truly natural. In any case, can you think of a way that squares the life-saving successes widely noted in his journals as a southern country M.D. versus the longterm downside to using fake C? I'm not a student of medicine, so I'm trying to understand how such an IV-injection can revive/rescue an ill person otherwise moments from death. This does not seem to be nearly enough time for the synthetic C to have time, inside the body, to rob whatever it robs from the bones, and deploy it so as to immediately revive the patient in the repeat fashion that Klenner's journal notes. There is one such story - of the patient suffering from the bite of the Puss Caterpillar, that claims the patient was blue, in great anguish, probably moments from death, and yet theywere already giving indications of relief and recovery before Doc had time to completey remove the needle post injection.

A parting question, related to dosing. Lets assume without argument that synthetic C is the longterm scourge as described in your post. Does this also negate the concept and benefits of mega dosing that grew up around the R&D of synthetic C? In other words, if I were to rely only on natural C sources, now we're are back to the age-old dilemma that it is not practical to consume natural sources in the amounts needed to provide mega-dosing.
