Reversal Of Heart Disease Discovered? Is This The Greatest Lapse In Medical History?

-By Paul A. Philips

Heart diseases prevention

In 1953, Canadian physician G.C Willis put forward the idea that cardiovascular heart disease was caused by a lack of vitamin C. Through his research, he found that vitamin-C-deprived humans and guinea pigs were discovered to have fatty atherosclerotic deposits in their vascular tissue, characteristic of heart disease.


The difference between scurvy and heart disease is that scurvy is a sudden, short-term result in vitamin C deficiency after a few weeks or months. While heart disease is slower and long-term. Remember, the latter may take years to develop. Or, put another way, heart disease is a misnomer; it should really be called long-term chronic scurvy.

Further evidence supporting Willis’ findings came from Paterson, a fellow Canadian researcher. He found that heart patients were deficient in vitamin C.
Around the late 1980’s, some very interesting discoveries were made:
  1. It was established that heart disease in its early stages starts with a structural change, a crack or stress fracture in the walls of arteries. On similar lines, it was known that many animals could manufacture vitamin C in their bodies without the need for diet. This is why these animals did not get any of the above stages and never have heart attacks (more on this later).
  2. As mentioned earlier, heart patients were vitamin C deficient. As a result, their bodies could no longer maintain and repair the artery walls due to an absence of the usual building materials, two proteins called collagen and elastin. Without this material, the body goes into a makeshift response by metabolising a fatty type substance to manufacture the walls instead. It was discovered by Beisiegel et. al. in Germany that this fatty type substance was made up of low-density cholesterol (LDL); the so-called ‘bad cholesterol’ with an additional protein molecule attached, and, together, is called the lipoprotein(a) molecule, or Lp(a) for short.
  3. Lp(a) was found to be quite sticky and thus led to the build up of plaque, the atherosclerotic deposits leading to the narrowing or blockage of arteries. In 1987 a Nobel prise was given to Doctors Linnus Pauling and Matthias Rath for discovering that Lp(a) occupies the lysine (and proline) binding sites in the arteries.
Pauling and Rath later found with further experimentation, as the vitamin C deficient chronic scurvy condition progresses, the liver makes more Lp(a) molecules, which, in turn, deposit on already existing atherosclerotic plaque formations.      
Putting these amazing discoveries together with conclusions we can clearly see that the implications are huge:
Essentially, heart disease is a dietary deficiency: A lack of vitamin C and two of the essential amino acids lysine and proline that take part in the formation of good, strong and healthy blood vessels.
There have been shed-loads of evidence to verify that therapies related to the above well and truly work. Check out the related websites… In effect, Pauling and Rath have put forward a unified theory and found a cure for heart disease.
Therefore, has the prevention and reversal of heart disease been discovered? If so, is this the greatest lapse in medical history by not taking up on this discovery?

10 Untruths Made In Science and the Breakthrough Scientific New Paradigm

-By Paul A. Philips

Indeed, science has made extraordinary contributions, transformed society with its humanitarian knowledge. Its universal acceptance and influence continues unprecedentedly.  However, for hundreds of years the scientific culture has been dogmatically stuck on a number of untruths, needing a new paradigm approach.
The extent to which the scientific culture is stuck on these untruths has never been more noticeable than today: Hardened dogmas and their limitations has put science in a situation where age-old problems are not getting solved by the current scientific paradigm. For example, major scientific problems not really getting solved such as those related to medicine; incurable diseases like cancer, heart disease and ageing illnesses… New paradigm scientific approaches are needed… see more
