The Ascorbate Papers, volume I: 1930-1939
A compendium of selected 20th-Century original medical & scientific literature on the clinical use of Ascorbate a.k.a. “Vitamin C” in the treatment and prevention of illness and disease. More
Many books on vitamin C have been written over the decades since its discovery in the 1930s. The Ascorbate Papers—referring to the formal chemical name of this interesting molecule—addresses the possibility that other vitamin book authors only skimmed the original clinicians’ papers; or worse, merely paraphrased second- or third-hand what earlier authors had presented.
Will a curious lay seeker with a reasonably broad liberal-arts education be able to wade through medical jargon and discover what was really done, and what the early researchers actually concluded in their work? The answer is yes, probably.
This volume is one of several in a series covering 1936-1999 by decades, presenting articles unabridged, except for minor corrections, plus English translations, to inform the reader about actual patient studies and clinical results.
