Before his death at age 91, Dr Abram Hoffer published more than 20 books and 500 research papers on clinical nutrition, chiefly on the therapeutic effect of vitamin B-3 and vitamin C. The four most influential of his studies are now available in professional editions, casebound and jacketed, with reference lists and indexes. These titles are essential acquisitions for medical libraries and the foundation of further research in the therapeutic value of clinical nutrition. HEALING CANCER Written in collaboration with his friend and colleague Linus Pauling, Dr Abram Hoffer presents the results of his nutritional or orthomolecular treatment of hundreds of patients suffering from various forms of cancer. These results show that megadoses of vitamin C and other nutrients are not only highly effective for reversing the progress of this disease in many cases but also for improving the quality of life in others. Healing Cancer not only refutes critics of megavitamin treatment for cancer through the evidence of Dr Hoffer's case studies and Dr Pauling's statistical analysis, but, more importantly, offers new hope to cancer patients for surviving this disease.
About the Author:
Dr Abram Hoffer is a founding father of the alternative health movement whose pioneering research in nutritional therapy inspired Linus Pauling and Ewan Cameron in their work with Vitamin C as well as Evan and Wilfrid Shute in their work with Vitamin E. Born in the town of Hoffer, Saskatchewan, in 1917, he studied in chemistry, medicine, and psychiatry at the University of Saskatchewan (M.S.A.), University of Minnesota (Ph.D.), and University of Toronto (M.D.).
Dr Linus Pauling, twice winner of the Nobel Prize, became interested in orthomolecular or megavitamin treatment for illness through the research of Dr Hoffer, which resulted in the founding of the Linus Pauling Institute for the study of orthomolecular medicine and the publication of the best-selling books Vitamin C & The Common Cold and How To Live Longer and Feel Better.
