    Vitamin supplements are popular items these days. Vitamin C is particularly popular in the winter, when people pop tablets at the first sign of a cold. However, data indicates that vitamin C doesn't actually prevent colds, but long-term use may slightly reduce the severity or duration of a cold when you do catch one. So, should we all start popping vitamin C tablets every day? Probably not. A new study in JAMA Internal Medicine showed that men who took 1,000-mg tablets of vitamin C were twice as likely to develop kidney stones as men who did not take vitamin C...

    For years, Alexis Beery, 15, relied on daily doses of an incredibly potent inhalant and injections of adrenaline just to stay alive. Now she and her similarly sick twin brother, Noah, have gone from racing to the ER on a regular basis to racing to high-school track and volleyball practice — thanks to treatment designed specifically for their unique genetic makeup. Gene-specific treatments have been used for years for a handful of diseases. Women with breast cancer who are found to carry the BRCA1 or BRCA2 genetic mutation, for instance, can undergo a regimen tailored for that specific gene mutation....

    Low levels of vitamin C were associated with higher levels of high sensitivity C-Reactive protein (hsCRP) and shorter intervals without major cardiac issues or death for heart failure patients, in research presented at the American Heart Association's Scientific Sessions 2011. Compared to those with high vitamin C intake from food, heart failure patients in the study who had low vitamin C intake were 2.4 times more likely to have higher levels of hsCRP, a marker for inflammation and a risk factor for heart disease. The study is the first to demonstrate that low vitamin C intake is associated with worse...

In a double-blind clinical trial, patients admitted to the JGH were randomly assigned to receive either vitamin C or vitamin D supplements for seven to ten days. Patients administered vitamin C had a rapid and statistically and clinically significant improvement in mood state, but no significant change in mood occurred with...
