View Diary: Vitamin C does not help with TB (60 comments)

  •  Dude the premise that Vitamin C (0+ / 0-)

    can cure TB is not proven outside the lab. Prove it then talk to me. But as far as the facts now stand eating more vitamin C does not cure TB.
       Studies like this are pushed by the Vitamin industry every few years to sell more vitamins.

    •  You're arguing two different things. (7+ / 0-)

      You're using dubious statistics about contracting TB to argue against vitamin C being able to help treat TB in conjunction with other drugs.

      This reminds me of a perverse RKBA argument I saw here not too long ago.

      •  How are my stats dubious? (0+ / 0-)

        Outside of the lab has Vitamin C been found to work to cure TB? No
            This study was pushed into the media because it leads people to assume taking more Vitamin C will help them if they catch TB.
           The part about in conjunction with other drugs is much like the Subway sandwich ads that say eat subway lose weight.
            Then they mention exercise and not to put mayo extra cheese etc on the sandwich.

        •  What's the point of pushing C? There's no real $$ (0+ / 0-)

          for anyone in showing vitamin C can cure TB.

          It's a generic drug, and you can get most if not all of what you need from your diet.

    •  instead of leaping before you look, (5+ / 0-)

      why not try to understand the science they were doing, rather than mixing oranges, grapefruits and ceramic tiles, and telling us they all taste great?

      What we call god is merely a living creature with superior technology & understanding. If their fragile egos demand prayer, they lose that superiority.
