"According to Dr. Rath" reminded me of Linus Pauling and Matthias Rath's unified theory.
Matthias Rath (born 1955 in Stuttgart, Germany) is a controversial doctor, businessman, and vitamin salesman.
Linus Pauling (February 28, 1901 – August 19, 1994) was one of the most influential chemists in history and ranks among the most important scientists of the 20th century and has won two Nobel prizes.
Linus Pauling and Matthias Rath alerted the world to the cause of heart disease in 1989: a chronic, sub-clinical vitamin C deficiency. They said it was due to a missing liver enzyme caused by the ancient GULO genetic defect in primate DNA.
Linus Pauling's said from his last interview:
I think we can get almost complete control of cardiovascular disease,
heart attacks and strokes by the proper use of (vitamin C and lysine)
... even cure it.
On his death bed, former Congressman Berkelly Bedell responded to Pauling's therapy for heart disease with a letter claiming:
You have at least put my mind at ease, and I believe possibly saved my
Accoding to the Official Pauling Therapy Web Site PaulingTherapy.com, the Pauling/Rath Unified Theory Paper paper was first accepted by the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences USA, but then rejected and not published.
Owen Fonorow, co-founder of the Vitamin C Foundation, said
People have a right to be skeptical. Scams abound and people don't know what to believe and often rely on their doctors. Most highly educated people think it impossible that heart disease could be caused by a vitamin deficiency, and the entire medical profession and pharmaceutical industry somehow missed it. However, the idea that a lack of vitamin C causes heart disease is not new. For some reason the early work, and the later Pauling/Rath theory and experiments, are ignored by medical science. We are thankful that Linus Pauling decided to film a lecture making these ideas available on video.
Many sites like paulingtherapy.com, claim also that the main reason that this important discovery has been ignored is economic.
While increased dietary Vitamin C could help reduce heart disease, stroke and cancer; their hypothesis is not scientifically verified.
The Vitamin C Foundation concluded,
Neither the FDA nor the Medical Profession accept the proposition put
forth by Pauling, Rath, Levy and others that the root cause of
cardiovascular disease is an acute vitamin C deficiency at the site of
the arterial lesion.
