Intravenous vitamin C saves New Zealand man with flu damaged lung

A 56-year-old male was referred to Auckland Hospital ICU July 1, 2009 with total respiratory failure for ECMO external oxygenation. The patient had contracted H1N1 Swine flu while on holiday overseas and had developed what is known as "white out" pneumonia. This refers to x-rays showing no air space in the lungs. The decision by the Auckland Hospital ICU team to administer adequate dosages of IV vitamin C — and their skillful coordination of ICU procedures — were responsible for the positive medical outcome.

Debunking the myth: Red meat and eggs not so bad after all
By Lauren Swan
The early 2000s were full studies that suggested people should no longer eat eggs or red meat due to health issues. Information came out that exposed the risks of eating eggs, which included heart disease and raised cholesterol levels. Red meat was accused of causing heart failure and heart disease. The following years saw Americans avoid red meat and eggs at all costs. But how correct were those studies? New research is now being presented in the U.K. and the U.S. that debunk the previous beliefs that eggs and red meat are hazardous for your health. Perhaps they're not so bad after all.
