Many diseases that affect and kill hundreds of millions of people worldwide are essentially unknown across the animal world. The explanation for this phenomenon: Essentially, all species produce high amounts of vitamin C in their bodies, a capability lost by the ancestors of humans. Vitamin C is essential for the production of collagen and, thereby, provides stability to the body and its blood vessels. Moreover, it stabilizes the barrier cell lines in the skin, lung, intestine, etc., that protect our body against the entry of viruses, bacteria, and other infective agents. Withholding the fact that we humans cannot produce our own vitamin C is the single most important reason why millions of humans suffer and die from diseases that are essentially unknown among other living beings.

As a result of this suppression of lifesaving information, the following diseases have become human-specific pandemics:

  • Heart attacks and strokes
  • Metastatic cancer
  • Many infectious diseases
  • Other human-specific diseases

While vitamin C is the most important vitamin for human health, a multitude of other micronutrients plays essential roles in an optimum metabolism of our cells. These micronutrients play together like musicians in an orchestra, a principle called micronutrient synergy. The medical science of researching detailed micronutrient combinations for specific health conditions is called Cellular Medicine.

The Dr. Rath Research Institute in San Jose, California, is a world leader in the field of Cellular Medicine research.

Do you think it is a coincidence that our children do not learn in school that their bodies cannot produce a single molecule of vitamin C and are dependent on optimum dietary intake for a lifetime?
