“Devotion to the truth is the hallmark of morality; there is no greater, nobler, more heroic form of devotion than the act of a man who assumes the responsibility of thinking.” - Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged
Interesting and thought provoking video.
Before this man can be said to be living proof that vitamin C is a miracle cure, they have to prove that the vitamin C actually cured him. That is, they have to describe in detail the mechanism by which the cure works, and then show that their description is accurate with repeatable testing.

One person cured or saved is a miracle. I have heard of vitamin C being administered intravenously for cancer patients and other patients. Is vitamin C administered intravenously covered by health insurance or is it out of pocket? I always take extra vitamin C when I get a cold and I think it shortens my cold and makes the symptoms less extreme but I can't say that it is a cure or if it's effective. I think there are lots of vitamins and nutrients that are good for our health and for our body. I think claims that some may be more effective than previously known still needs to be determined through more extensive tests.

Vitamin C has long been the subject of scientific investigation and we now know that a shortage of this vitamin in the body can cause diseases like scurvy and others. It is also known as a cure for influenza but the exact daily dose is still a contentious issue. When taken in excess it is harmless though and the body will just excrete what it does not need. Interesting video though - thanks.
Vitamin C, like so many other nutrients, is helpful in the right amounts. When the body has all the right nutrients, it can fight off almost any disease effectively. If you have a lack of any important nutrient, you can improve your health by rectifying that situation.
A ship in harbor is safe, but that's not what ships are for.
I did not watch the video. I have a tradition of not watching videos without statements about the contents and even then I shun most videos. Put it in writing and save me loads of time.
I do want to comment on vitamin C.
Here are 2 good sources of info on vitamin C. It appears to be helpful and it is a water soluble vitamin making it safe to ingest in large amounts. The same cannot be said for fat soluble vitamins.
