In response to the Auckland DHB 14th September press release, visiting Vitamin C expert, Dr Thomas Levy said today, "to assert that there is 'no evidence' that high-dose vitamin C is either safe or effective is to ignore the results of thousands of such IV administrations by doctors around the world, as well as to ignore tens of thousands of articles in the medical literature, in the most esteemed medical institutions in the world, that have been published over the last 70 years."
The DHB decision was made in the wake of mounting demand for high-dose vitamin C after news broke out of Waikato Dairy farmer Alan Smith's complete recovery from what the hospital classed as a terminal case of Swine flu. Mr Smith is the hospital's only Swine Flu patient on life support to have survived. He is also the only one to have received the high-dose intravenous vitamin C, which was administered at the family's request after being advise that life support, and therefore his life, were about to be terminated.
To be introduced by Alan Smith himself, Dr Levy, cardiologist, associate professor, lawyer and author, will be speaking about Vitamin C, use, myths, safety and efficacy on Friday 17th September, 7.30pm at Auckland Girls Grammar, Howie St, Ponsonby. Refer to www.vitaminccancure.org for details.
Dr Levy has reserved 50 complementary seats specially allocated for hospital doctors to attend so that they can have their concerns addressed on the safety and efficacy of Vitamin C.
The event is being organised by the Vitamin C Can Cure Coalition www.vitaminccancure.org. Dr Levy is available to members of the media for interview from Wednesday - Friday prior to the event.
