Vitamin Therapy Provides Hope for Cancer Victims

Al Robertson was diagnosed with terminal cancer after many years of unanswered questions, and after his diagnosis, he began an intense vitamin therapy treatment that has improved his health greatly.

| March/April 1978


This was Al Robertson in 1972 ... a week, flabby, depressed man whose hair had turned white and whose idea of an active afternoon was sitting quietly in the sun in his own backyard. His doctor's confirmed diagnosis: terminal cancer. However, Al Robertson began taking a self-treatment of vitamins which may have prolonged his life. Prompting the question: Has a cure for cancer been found in vitamins?


My husband, Al, is a large man. He's 6 feet, 5.5 inches tall and — when well — weighs 230 pounds (all muscle, no fat).

The only problem is that, starting in 1950 and for the next 22 years, Al was never really what you could call well. He'd lose his appetite and his weight would sag down to 180 pounds. He felt continually fatigued, tense, and irritable. He suffered from night sweats, often severe ones. He was frequently depressed, sometimes even deeply apathetic. He had headaches, leg, chest, and back muscular pains. His eyesight — even his hair! — changed. Stomach and intestinal gas caused him increasing discomfort. Various small fatty-like nodes began appearing under his skin, and Al experienced increasing cycles of general weakness and malaise.

Since the symptoms of tuberculosis are often quite similar to those that Al was exhibiting, he took tuberculin skin tests, which proved negative, leaving us right where we had started. Even the various doctors that my husband consulted didn't know what his ailment could be. They wouldn't even hazard a guess!

So Al did what so many people seem to do in a similar circumstance: He started vitamin therapy that our medical establishment claims is all the dietary supplement that anyone eating modern processed food needs and plugged along as best he could on sheer willpower.

And then we discovered Adelle Davis's wonderful books on nutrition and the importance of vitamin therapy in our daily food intake. Al increased his dosage of vitamins A, all the B family (including choline, pantothenic acid, and ara-aminobenzoic acid), C, D, and E, in addition to liquid lecithin and the potent multi-vitamin perles manufactured by Plus Products under the trade name "Formula 74."

This vitamin therapy helped Al's condition enough to be noticeable, but not enough to keep him (at age 60) from taking a forced medical separation from his civil service job. We sold our desert home and, hoping that a change in climate might help my husband's condition, moved up into the mountains of northeastern California.
