Bowling is a famous American chemist and one of the pioneers of quantum chemistry and structural biology. In 1939, he published the epoch-making nature of chemical bonds in the history of chemistry, which describes the formation of chemical bonds from the perspective of quantum mechanics. It is pointed out that the essence of chemical bond is the electromagnetic force produced by the recombination of atomic orbitals, which also affects our chemistry textbooks.
For some reason, the scientific bull began to study the role of vitamin C after winning the Nobel Prize. Since he was 65, he has added vitamin C to his breakfast orange juice, day after day. His behavior was like adding sugar to Coca-Cola, taking extra doses of vitamin C every day. He believes wholeheartedly that this habit will help him fight against aging. Based on years of research, Pauling published how To Live Longer and Feel Better) in 1970. The book’s core ideas are as follows: 1. Take 1000 mg or more of vitamin C a day to prevent colds. 2. Vitamin C can fight the virus.
But is this the case? Over the years, there has not been enough scientific research to support vitamin C and many other dietary supplements that are really useful. More studies later showed that Pauling’s idea was not only proved wrong, but ultimately dangerous. Adding vitamin C to his orange juice does not help him to live longer, but can seriously damage his health. To verify the role of antioxidants, a large number of clinical double-blind controlled trials have been conducted. They were divided into control groups by finding a group of subjects of similar age and similar habits. One group received a supplement for the test, while the other received a placebo.
In 2012, doctors counted 27 clinical trials against which to assess the efficacy of various antioxidants. Of the 27 studies, only 7 reported that taking vitamin supplements had a number of health benefits, including reducing the risk of coronary heart disease and pancreatic cancer. Ten other studies found no benefit from supplements, as if all patients had just taken sugar pills. Ten other studies found that many patients were more serious after taking vitamin supplements, including an increase in the incidence of diseases such as lung and breast cancer. Naked data tell us that vitamin supplements are not only a panacea, but can even cause serious harm if not properly used.
