The surprise discovery may point to a new way of tackling this increasingly hard-to-treat infection, the US study authors from Yeshiva University
An estimated 650,000 people worldwide have multidrug-resistant TB.
Studies are now needed to see if a treatment that works using the same action as vitamin C would be useful as a TB drug in humans.
While the findings of this study appear promising, further research to confirm the observations would be essential before Vitamin C can be used to supplement TB treatment”
In the laboratory studies, vitamin C appeared to be acting as a "reducing agent" - something that triggers the production of of reactive oxygen species called free radicals. These free radicals killed off the TB, even drug resistant forms that are untreatable with conventional antibiotics such as isoniazid.
To bad that Codex Alimentarius is set to make it that much more difficult to access vitamins
Unless, of course, big pharma can find a way to manipulate the effect of the free radicals and make a very expensive pharmaceutical product. Notice the highlighted wording?
Because that is the agenda. Profits over your health.
