"sepsis...claims the lives of one American every 2.5 minutes. Other victims of sepsis are 'saved' through amputation....Every day high-dose vitamin C could be saving the lives of sepsis victims. Every day countless fingers, toes, hands, feet, arms, and legs, could remain attached and healthy if the medical community would simply hear and respond to the facts with scientific integrity." ~ Levy, MD, JD, Thomas E.
