What Is The Unified Theory of Human Cardiovascular Disease? How is it related to Vitamin C?

A copy of the original paper can be found here: Original Published Theory

This theory was published by Linus Pauling and Matthias Rath in 1992 in the Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine.

Below is an excerpt from the original published theory. The term 'ascorbate' refers to Vitamin C. The abbreviation 'CVD' refers to cardiovascular disease.

"With sustained ascorbate deficiency, the result of insufficient ascorbate uptake, these defense mechanisms overshoot and lead to the development of CVD. Premature CVD is essentially unknown in all animal species that produce high amounts of ascorbate endogenously. In humans, unable to produce endogenous ascorbate, CVD became one of the most frequent diseases. The genetic mutation that rendered all human beings today dependent on dietary ascorbate is the universal underlying cause of CVD. Optimum dietary ascorbate intake will correct this common genetic defect and prevent its deleterious consequences. Clinical confirmation of this theory should largely abolish CVD as a cause for mortality in this generation and future generations of mankind. "
