Rivers of Life and Death Part 4
Vitamin C and Vascular Disease
Decades of vitamin C research have been ignored by mainstream medicine to the detriment of a lot of people. Not only can vitamin C safely and effectively clear arteries of dangerous plaque that leads to heart attack and stroke but it makes a big difference when administering a vaccine whether a person or infant is vitamin C deficient or not. If vitamin C is deficient the chances are low levels of inflammation and infection would already be present when vaccines are administered leading to stronger vaccine reactions. The stress of injected poisons would further depress dangerously low vitamin C levels opening the gates for a �Mass� reaction.
In his book Every Second Child (1981), Archie Kalokerinos, an Australian physician, tells us that the death rate
among the aborigine children he was assigned to help was 50%. His investigation showed these deaths to be associated with vaccinations, and he found the children's diets to be severely deficient in vitamin C. By merely administering vitamin C (100 mg per month of age), he dropped the death rate to nearly zero. Pediatricians wantonly ignore this information and inject without bothering to examine predisposing clinical pictures that potentially maximize the chance of a reaction to vaccines.
Researchers at the University of California say that participants who took about 500 milligrams of vitamin C supplements per day saw a 24 per cent drop in plasma C-reactive protein (CRP) levels after two months. Recent research suggests that CRP may be a better predictor of heart disease than cholesterol levels. "C-reactive protein is a marker of inflammation, and there is a growing body of evidence that chronic inflammation is linked to an increased risk of heart disease, diabetes and even Alzheimer's disease," said Dr. Gladys Block, UC Berkeley professor of epidemiology and public health nutrition and lead author of the study.
Atherosclerosis can lead to the accumulation of fat
and white blood cells and other inflammatory cells on the
inner walls of the arteries. These cells can release oxygen-free
radicals, unstable molecules that further damage the blood vessels.
Dr. James Enstrom from the University of California studied the vitamin intake of over 11,000 people for 10years. He found that 300mg of vitamin C a day reduced risk of heart disease by 50 percent in men and 40 percent in women. Doctor G. C. Willis found that people taking 1,500mg of vitamin C a day for 12 months reversed plaque while those who didn't take vitamin C had worsening plaque. It is clear that vitamin C is necessary for vascular health.
Low levels of vitamin C in the blood are linked to a more severe
form of peripheral artery disease, an often painful condition in
which the leg blood vessels become blocked, according to a
report in Circulation: Journal of the American Heart Association.
"Even when there is not a single outward symptom of trouble, a person may be in a state of vitamin C deficiency more dangerous than scurvy itself. When such a condition is not detected, and continues uncorrected, the teeth and bones will be damaged, and what may be even more serious, the blood stream is weakened to the point where it can no longer resist or fight infections
not so easily cured as scurvy." (1)
Optometrist, Dr. Sydney Bush's retinal artery observations2 support the Pauling theory. Using modern equipment to non-invasively photograph the retinal arteries of the eye before and after Vitamin C supplementation in humans. Dr. Bush has documented reversal of atherosclerotic plaque with Vitamin C supplementation. Retinal photograph taken in 2002 (left) reveals artery disease (vessel narrowing, drop out of some vessels). Retinal photo (right) taken in 2004 after daily vitamin C supplementation confirms pericorneal arteries have widened and some reappear
. The pericorneal arterioles and capillaries can be divided into ten degrees of scurvy allowing the accurate prediction to patients of how much or little vitamin C they have been eating. The highest mark anybody has had is 94%
In the full blown Vitamin C deficiency disease called Scurvy, the structural elements of the body literally fall apart. Collagen is broken down and not replaced. The joints wear out, the small arteries begin to crack and degenerate, the skin shows easy bruising and bleeding as small vessels rupture throughout the body
, and the teeth may loosen and fall out. In essence, Dr. Linus Pauling said that heart disease is a manifestation of chronic scurvy, and atherosclerotic plaque is a mechanism evolved to repair or patch blood vessels and arteries damaged by chronic vitamin C deficiency. Dr. Pauling also said that atherosclerotic plaque formation can be prevented or reversed with vitamin C, lysine and proline. Vitamin C Deficiency Has Major Impact on Collagen Production
Vitamin C is required to make a protein called collagen which is the major component of connective tissues. Collagen happens to be the most abundant protein in the body. It is the structural protein used to make connective tissues, bones, teeth, hair, and arteries. Strong collagen is important for a strong vascular system thus a strong heart. Vitamin C is required for lysyl hydroxylase, an enzyme responsible for attaching the lysine residues together on adjacent collagen strands. Vitamin C deficiency results in weakened collagen strands caused by disrupted lysine cross linking.
The Society of Interventional Radiology has reported that 1 in 20 Americans have aneurysms, a bulge or ballooning out of part of the wall of a vein or artery that looks much like an over-inflated tire inner tube. The larger aneurysms the greater the danger they may burst. The most common are abdominal aortic aneurysms, but aneurysms can also occur in blood vessels in the brain and elsewhere. Among adults who have aortic aneurysms, 1 in 4 are large enough to pose an immediate risk (that's about 1 in 100 overall). An old study showed that adults who have abdominal aortic aneurysms often have low levels of vitamin C within the blood vessel tissue itself.3 Clearly we need Vitamin C to keep the blood vessel walls strong and healthy.
Vaccination Induced Blood Poisoning
Lead increases the toxicity of mercury
by a hundred fold, so does aluminum.
What happens when you inject mercury and aluminum into the blood? Nothing would be the answer of medical and health officials at the CDC and FDA. What happens when a truck runs down a five year old? Nothing would be the response of an absolute idiot. Dr. Andrew Moulden speaks of microvascular ischemic process as the key pathological process that can account for the type of neurological symptoms and signs many experience post vaccination. Importantly, this microvascular systemic vasculopathy is common to all vaccines and causes much morbidity for all people vaccinated irrespective of the varied vaccine strain pathogens and irrespective of whether the vaccine microbe has been �attenuated�, weakened, or killed.
Spanish health authorities have withdrawn tens of thousands of doses of papillomavirus vaccine (HPV) (as I write this in February of 2009) after two girls in the eastern Valencia region fell seriously ill hours after receiving them. "One of the girls got out of intensive care this weekend and the other is still there. Both are in stable condition," a Valencia health department spokeswoman told AFP. The two girls were vaccinated last week as part of a vast government vaccination program targeting adolescents. This kind of information is quickly buried by public health officials and the vaccinations go on and young girls continue to be hurt. When we inject a mixed bag of chemicals and heavy metals commonly found in vaccines we often see a quick reaction occuring in the blood and vessels.
The vasculopathic process Dr. Moulden has named the �MASS response� and this is a type of hypersensitivity response largely mediated by a cell mediated immune response (type 4 hypersensitivity) and this response is active alone, or in combination with the other hypersensitivity responses. According to Moulden vaccine injured cases develop cranial nerve ischemic lesions within hours of vaccine with some dying in the process, others neurocognitively impaired for life, and others develope autism if the damage happens early in life.
Dr. Moulden says, �Suffice to say, with the knowledge of how this process causes ischemia and the multiple end-organ damages, disorders, and disease states, we are now in a position to treat, cure, intervene, and prevent a multitude of mammalian diseases and disorders directly by targeting the cause of disease (the MASS pathophsyiological responses) and not pursuing symptom based palliation which cures nothing. There are other pharmaceutical products beyond the vaccines that have been causing substantial morbidity and death via activation of MASS responses from prescription drugs � including antipsychotics, antibiotics, and other drug classes. The mechanism by which Vioxx caused strokes and heart attacks is part of the MASS response to vaccines.�
There are twelve cranial nerves and often it is the 6th and 7th cranial nerve are most affected with microvascular ischemic cranial nerve palsies. The rate of development of symptoms for all of these cases (within hours and days) clearly demonstrates that the pathophysiolgical process causing tissue damage is NOT antibody mediated � this is a cell mediated immunological response � a MASS response in terms if hypersensitivity responses � a kind of �serum sickness.
Furthermore, when the non-specific immune system is in this state of
�hyper-vigilance�, any concurrent immune challenge (e.g. gluten,
casein, lactose � if intolerant, febrile illness, infection, antibiotic use�)
will aggravate the underlying MASS response pathophysiology and
lead to greater discomfort, disease, and clinical symptoms for the patient.
Dr. Andrew Moulden
The MASS response to vaccination causes ischemic tissue damage not only to the brain, but to other organ systems as well � including clinically silent hepatic and renal microvascular ischemia. In some individuals the MASS response can cause acute renal failure as the glomeruli (micro vessels responsible for filtering solutes, electrolytes, and toxins from the body, can lead to impaired filtration and protein losses, and build up of BUN and creatinine and the creatinine clearance rate is impaired as a function of the microvascular impairments to the kidneys.
