My reading of the aforemented PNAS paper by Levine et al., (1996)
disagrees with the very high dose vitamin C protocols which were
advocated by Pauling and Szent-Gyorgyi, without providing any firm
evidence on the issue, and without mentioning these great
investigators by name.
Conclusions in the PNAS paper are limited to a new RDA for
ascorbate for men in their 20s.
