When the Scottish doctors began to treat vitamin C is a group of volunteers and asked them to eat 10 grams of ascorbic acid per day, in the course of the experiment revealed that treatment with ascorbic acid tablets are not completely safe. It was found that the best way to get vitamin C in natural products, by adding a small amount of ascorbic acid in powder form dissolved in water. The dosage of ascorbic acid above 4 g may cause in some patients with kidney stones

According to the research, doctors have concluded that if the patients permanently get enough vitamin C with food, about 10% of deaths from cancer could be avoided. Each year, it would be possible to save 15 - 20 thousand people.
