Are vitamins useful to help fight cancer? We have known for many years that vitamins are positively necessary for good health, or enjoying any health at all. The absence of certain vitamins and minerals in the diet can necessarily lead to disease and ultimately death. So vitamins like vitamin A, B vitamins, and vitamin C are not just beneficial, they are absolutely necessary. 

The RDA, or recommended daily allowance of vitamins and minerals was established in order to prevent diseases that would arise when vitamins were deficient in the diet. In other words, if you meet the RDA for vitamins and minerals, your chances of developing vitamin deficiency and associate problems or diseases is low. Still, with the diet many people eat––high in processed foods––some people fall short of meeting the recommended amount of nutrition outlined by the RDA. 

It is worth noting, too, that the RDA does not really take into account the benefits associated with getting more than the RDA. The RDA merely exists to prevent disease. Getting an abundance of vitamins and minerals, however, is associated with good health and longevity. Despite this, traditionally the medical community has downplayed the necessity or efficacy of vitamins, especially when it comes to their power to prevent serious diseases, especially a disease like cancer. 

That may be changing, however,

There is evidence which has been emerging in the medical literature that getting high amounts of vitamin C in particular might prevent a wide variety of cancer, including bladder cancer, breast cancer, cervical cancer, endometrial cancer, esophageal cancer, gastric cancers, kidney cancers, lung cancer, pancreatic cancer, and prostate cancer. 

Getting plenty of vitamin C was associated with a lower likelihood of developing cancer at all. 

Interestingly, some groundbreaking physicians have used high dose vitamin C intravenously to high cancer; vitamin C kills cancer cells but leaves normal cells alone. 

It is noteworthy too that vitamin C is also potently anti-fungal, making it an important nutrient on The Kaufmann Diet. To learn about the extensive similarities between cancer and fungus, check out The Germ That Causes Cancer Handbook in our store.

There are plenty of foods available on The Kaufmann Diet that are rich in vitamin C. These include lemons, chili peppers, kale, spinach, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, and strawberries. Supplements can be a good option too, but it is always key to seek the abundance of your nutrition through diet. And while we know the profound benefits of vitamin C in particular, getting nutrition through food ensures you will get a broad spectrum of nutrients that will elevate your health and help you fight cancer.
