A “New” Approach to Cancer

An article in the New England Journal of Medicine called “Releasing the Brakes on Cancer Immunotherapy” was really excited about new ways to activate the immune system, rather than to simply destroy it with chemotherapy.  One of the precautions noted is that too much activation can result in autoimmune problems.  Interestingly, there was no mention of high dose IV vitamin C and oral vitamin D3, which are both helpful for immune deficiency as well as autoimmune diseases.  We have been using this approach for many years with good success.

See the NEJM, Sept 8, 2015.
