It’s a very interesting time in human history. The birth of alternative media outlets has allowed information to spread across the globe, rapidly. Today, extreme measures have been taken and are being taken to label information as ‘false news.’ Granted, a lot of information out there is indeed false news, but media outlets are getting flagged, demonetized and censored for sharing information that is perfectly valid.
Intravenous vitamin C treatment for covid-19 patients is one of the latest examples, multiple media outlets claimed that it is very unlikely that it can do anything to help, and ‘fact checkers’ even flagged some articles providing evidence suggesting that it may. Meanwhile, as far as Vitamin C treatment for Covid-19 goes, regardless of what some media outlets are claiming, Medicine in Drug Discovery, of Elsevier, a major scientific publishing house, recently published an article on early and high-dose IVC in the treatment and prevention of Covid-19. Vitamin C was successfully used to treat 50 moderate to severe covid-19 patients, and some New York hospitals have even started to use the treatment.
