Dr. Bradford Weeks, MD: As a medical doctor, I would want the government to tell me, is it based on a new discovery or is it to keep people calm while they are poisoned?

    No, they did it to maintain the Status Quo.

    Raising the Limit should be a sign in of itself and lost of people fled because of it.

    There is NO LOGICAL REASON to do that suddenly and DURING a catastrophe.
    No way in hell they suddenly learned what takes decades to prove that a new level is safe.

    The frog was kept in the heating pot with the lid on. No jumping out frog! Stay put! The canaries in the coalmine went purposefully unnoticed. The bar was raised to permit more radiation exposure knowing what would occur, especially with pregnant women and children. Plausible deniability ensued.

    Who speaks "for the Government"? Would he please step forward and speak clearly so we can all see and hear – for the record.

    I saw the entire video, got excited, was about to tell my folks in Japan about the vitamin C therapy. But none of the doctors in the video provided the dosage for the ordinary Japanese citizens (except for abnormally high dose for Fukushima workers), even though all claimed the superpower of vitamin C in radiation protection and repeated resonating lessons like "each person must take responsibility for his/her own health…"

    I felt this odd, thought I'd play a devil's advocate, did some search and came across with this web page spilling out dirts on Linus Pauling's vitamin C claim:

    I then googled Dr. Atsuo Yanagisawa in Japanese and the top search results were Amazon Japan page selling his books in which he claims Vitamin C can cure cancer and that people should get IV treatment of high-dose Vitamin C to improve quality of life — the same kind of questionable medical advice that Linus Pauling, Ph.D. claimed with vitamin C and Mayo Clinic disproved over and over.

    Dr. Yanagisawa's books : http://goo.gl/vW3L7

    I was disappointed. Because the video does contain some valid viewpoints (Japanese politics, phyche, business, individual health responsibility) and I appreciated them.

    I guess we get easily sucked into Dr. Pauling's Nobel prize prestige… I mean about Orthomolecular Medicine (or is it a new fancy name to sell supplements?)

    Dr. Yanagisawa is the general editor of Orthomolecular Medicine News Service…

      I wouldn't dismiss Pauling so easily. He took 3 grams a day of Vitamin C and lived to be 93. We should all be so fortunate. I take 1 gram a day and 1 gram Bioflavonoids along with a handful of other supplement

        I wouldn't get too excited about how long he lived. I worked in a Nursing Home for about 8 years back in the day. I knew people there that ate bacon and eggs, buttered toast, lots of red meat, smoked and drank liquor, and lived into their 90's also. Genetics plays a big role in how long you live. Some will grow very old, others won't. It's just that simple. Now, I will say that taking care of yourself won't hurt, but just because you do doesn't mean all that much.

    Mega-dose the Vitamin C. Thats how they use it to cure ailments. They (the FDA, who lies) say there is damage from mega dosing but there is no evidence for it. Take as much as you want. It may cause diarrhea. (but you are detecting, so thats normal)

    A summary of the vitamin C & radiation paper mentioned in the video:

    Antioxidants are a very good idea for radiation symptom prevention.

  • GeoHarvey

    I think it is important to remember that Linus Pauling was starting treatment with high dosages of intravenous, not oral, vitamin C. The body can only absorb a limited amount of vitamin C orally. When Pauling's detractors attempted to test his conclusions, they used oral vitamin C.

    It reminds me a bit of the original discovery that limes prevent scurvy. It was disproven by physicians who attempted to duplicate the experiment, but they used boiled lime juice (in which the vitamin C had been destroyed by heat) instead of limes. The fact that what they did failed meant that British sailors continued to get scurvy for a number of years.
