Thank you for this very informative essay. I am currently using the Pauling Therapy, but I cannot get past 6000mg/day of Vitamin C tablets without great discomfort. I want to get to 10,000 – 12,000 mg /day. I am considering Liposomal Vitamin C to accomplish the equivalence to these levels, but I have a question whose answer I cannot find anywhere. Perhaps you can help.
Eighty (80) percent of ascorbic acid orally administered is lost through elimination, so that, say, 10,000 mg results in only 2,000 mg getting into the system. Liposomal Vitamin C, on the other hand, delivers the reverse; that is, up to 80% enters the system. My question therefore is: if I want to get, say, the equivalent of 10,000 mg into my system, (which would be 2000 mg of ascorbic acid) could I substitute this dose simply with 2500 mg of Liposomal Vitamin C? (2500 mg is to account for the 80-20 phenomenon).
Thanks in advance for your response.
Thus, topical calcipotriene may be used as an alternative or adjunct to topical corticosteroid therapy. It is applied twice daily when used as monotherapy. No controlled trials guide how best to use topical corticosteroids in conjunction with calcipotriene. Once daily use of each may be adequate. Acidic products can inactivate topical calcipotriene, and some topical corticosteroids may be acidic. A reasonable approach to combination therapy is to have patients apply topical calcipotriene and topical corticosteroids each once daily at different times of day.
As you can imagine, cigarette smoke contains many impurities that are inhaled in great numbers directly into the lung. For this reason, the alveolar spaces of the smoker contain numerous scavenger cells (macrophages) that are filled with engulfed (phagocytized) particles of impurities and debris, as illustrated in Picture of scavenger cells in a smoker's alveolus Under the microscope, with this high magnification, you can actually see the black and brown engulfed particles in the alveolar scavenger cells. Indeed, smoker's lung may have so much of this particulate material that the lung looks gray-black to the naked eye. Most of the time, you don't need a microscope to tell if someone is or was a heavy smoker. A naked eye examination of a smoker's lung will usually reveal an enlarged gray-black lung with enlarged air spaces (the emphysema, as you saw in Figure 4 and will see again in Figure 8).
