Before considering the possibility that there’s a massive conspiracy against natural healing and your right of choice for vitamin supplements and wellness, it’s important to know that all vitamin C research studies are not equal.
Some are poorly planned. Others were obviously designed by scientists not familiar with nutrition principles. Yet others are ones that showed good results but the scientists’ conclusions were full of error. Knowing these things is important if you want to stay healthy simply because if you aren’t educated in nutrition yourself, it’s easy to accept the beliefs of so-called experts – and end up destroying your own health.
Although most scientists have a true heart to discover the truth, the way they go about finding it is often at question. What usually follows is erroneous studies with erroneous conclusions that dissuade the public to take supplements.
As a result, many people come to the conclusion that no vitamins and minerals, multivitamins, multiminerals or vitamin C supplements are worthy of them taking them. And this will lead to one thing – premature death and disease before that!
Some of the vitamin C supplement research boo-boos include the following:
- Researchers put a group of hundreds of people together, gave them vitamin C supplements and then tallied the results.
What’s wrong with this approach is that it goes against the whole grain of nutritional research. If you want to study an effect, you must first know the status of the vitamin C levels in the body. But they ignore this and plunge forward administering ascorbic acid or other vitamin C supplement and then making an erroneous conclusion.
Here’s another way to look at what they are doing: Let’s say you have a grove of orange trees. The orange trees in the west part of the grove are diseased. The orange trees in the east part of the grove are young, unable to bear fruit yet. The orange trees in the south part are thriving well. And the orange trees in the north part are fertilized whereas the others aren’t.
Would you test the results of a new fertilizer on all the trees in the grove and mingle all your results? NO! You’d be laughed at by other more credible scientists. Obviously the trees in each part of the grove have their own individual needs and if you didn’t address those needs, what good are the results?
Yet this is what scientists do when they mingle groups of people together, some healthy, some not healthy, some with low levels of vitamin C and some with normal levels. They simply don’t start from a level ground. Don’t believe their research.
