The simplest adjuvant can improve your life and your survival statistics. Vitamin C is a case in point. Easy to find and simple to add to your diet this seems to be a winner on all counts.
The results of a meta-analysis conducted by researchers at Sweden's Karolinska Institue indicate improved survival among women with breast cancer who had a higher intake of vitamin C from supplements or food sources, according to the European Journal of Cancer (2014 March 7)
For their analysis, Holly R. Harris and her colleagues selected nine reports describing 10 observational studies that included a total of 17,696 women diagnosed with breast cancer. Among this group there were 1,558 deaths attributable to the disease and 2,791 total deaths. Studies examined the effect of supplementing with vitamin C following breast cancer diagnosis and/or the effect of vitamin C obtained in the diet.
When the studies reporting the effects of vitamin C supplementation were evaluated, the use of supplements was associated with a 19% lower risk of total mortality and a 15% lower risk of dying from breast cancer in comparison with no use.
Editor's Note:Analysis of vitamin C from food sources uncovered a 27% lower risk of mortality and a 22% lower risk of breast cancer death in association with each 100mg per day increase. Comparison of high versus low dietary intake resulted in a 20% lower risk of dying and a 23% reduction in the risk of breast cancer mortality among women whose intake was categorized as high.
For those whose Cancer is more advanced there is always Vitamin C infusions.
