This is not just about oxalates,unfortunately.
Not to mention that you included in one of your copy and pastes that vitamin C is a diuretic, supporting the issue that this is not just about oxalates. Its about how a high dose of synthetic vitamin can put the body in a state of acidosis.
I will have to return to this later tonight when I can provide links to stones being about more than just oxalates.
Take a look at this page, I think you need a better understanding of what kidney stones are actually made up of…
80% of kidney stones are from calcium oxalate, how are you gonna say that this is not just about oxalates when 80% or kidney stones are made up of it?
As I quoted above, ascorbic acid will dissolve calcium oxalate.
The second highest source of kidney stones is from uric acid.
Some kidney stones are made of uric acid, a waste product normally passed out of the body in the urine. You are more likely to have uric acid stones if you have:
Low urine output.
A diet high in animal protein, such as red meat.
An increase in how much alcohol you drink.
Inflammatory bowel disease.
Certain medicines may prevent or dissolve uric acid stones.
Note that ascorbic acid being a dieuretic would PREVENT a uric acid type of stone.
The third type is called a Struvite stone. – These are generally thought to be a effect of UTI’s
(which ascorbic acid also helps with if you read the quotes i posted)
The last type is called Cystine stones, obviously from too much cystine in the urine. I will have to look into this type more as this is the only type I haven’t studied as much as I’d like.
From that we can see that 3/4 of all kidney stones(not to mention the most common types) ARE prevented or helped by ascorbic acid.
The fact that you said these are all from the same source makes me think you didn’t even read them.
Great Plains Laboratory
Simon and Hudes
Dr. William McCormack
Klenner (1971), Poser (1972) and Hoffer (1973)
Takiguchi et al. (1966)
Murphy and Zelman (1965)
(McDonald and Murphy, 1959)
Those are just the scientific studies, I didn’t post the authors of the books, looks like more than the same source/a dentist to me.
I agree with you raster that the source is very important, lots of ascorbic acid is from GMO corn like you said, so the source needs to be good.
