Vitamin C Mega Dose vs. Standard Dose in Smokers with Subclinical Hypovitaminosis C, A Controlled Randomised Clinical Trial.

Abstract: Podemos tomar una foto a la salud del globo en los últimos cincuenta años y no debe extrañarnos la falta de homogeneidad. Una transiciún epidemiológica de enfermedades infecciosas agudas a enfermedades crónicas degenerativas. Algunos desastres naturales y otros provocados por la perversidad del hombre haciendo de las suyas. Recordemos los habitantes de las cercanías de las famosas tragedias de Chernóbyl, o Hiroshima, o Manitoba. Épocas y regiones dispersas pero con algunos resultados similares. Alteraciones neurológicas y cáncer.

Preventive Medicine Education Provisions in undergraduate Programs in Colombia and Australia: A Comparative Study Abstract: This study compared the provision of preventive medicine education in Colombian and Australian medical programs. The aim of medicine is to prevent disease and prolong life.

The goal of preventive medicine is to reduce, as early as possible, the risk factors of the patient or the population that contribute to premature morbidity and mortality. There has been an important change in the medical school curricula of developed countries in the last five decades, being the introduction of preventive medicine subjects one of the major changes. Colombia, a developing country in Latin America, has maintained for years the original medical school curricula, with small changes.

Vitamin C Mega Dose vs. Standard Dose in Smokers with Subclinical Hypovitaminosis C, A Controlled Randomised Clinical Trial.

Abstract: Smoking induces oxidative stress, which has been demonstrated to lower plasma Vitamin C levels. Adult smokers in Bogota, Colombia were randomly recruited into 2 groups, a megadose Vitamin C group (Day 1, 15g IV, Day 2, 15g IV, One gram orally for 2 weeks after) and a standard Vitamin C dose group (Day 1, 100mg IV, Day 2 100mg IV). The study was double blinded. Urine Vitamin C, haemoglobin and haematocrit were measured pre and post intervention in both groups. Results: At the end of the study Haematocrit and Haemoglobin levels were lowered significantly in the megadose group. C-LDL was not significantly different between the groups. Urine Vitamin C was raised in both groups.
