Research into the role of vitamin C in cancer

A private foundation is giving physician-researchers from Maastricht UMC+ a €200,000 grant to study the role vitamin C plays in cancer. The scientists have found that vitamin C stimulates the growth of white blood cells (immune cells). This also applies to the natural killer cells (NK cells) that are able to recognise and destroy cancer.
