A breakthrough in understanding of vit C therapy for cancer. Researchers in Japan report extracellular iron decomposes hydrogen peroxide generated by vitamin C. The inhibition of cancer cell growth via vitC is blocked by the presence of iron. [Scientific Reports 2018] This was demonstrated in leukemia cells in a lab dish.
With this new understanding, researchers employed iron-binding molecules prior to vitamin C treatment with demonstrable anti-cancer effects. An iron-chelating drug, or donation of blood to reduce iron load, or a low iron diet (avoidance of red meat) increased the cell-killing effect of vitamin C. A reduction of iron combined with vitamin C infusions worked synergistically to the point where detection and invasion by tumor cells was completely eliminated.
