The Japanese College of Intravenous Therapy, headed by Dr Atsuo Yanagisawa, recently held a meeting for Doctors on the topic of “Intravenous Vitamin C and Cancer”. Several notable Japanese and o/seas researchers presented some leading edge research – included Dr Steve Hickey author of “Ascorbate –the science of Vitamin C” who was accompanied by the co-author Dr Hilary Roberts, Dr Ron Hunninghake leading researcher at the Riordan Clinic and Dr John Hoffer (Dr Abram Hoffers’s son) also a leading researcher in IVC and cancer. At this meeting an “International College of Injectable Nutrition” was formed, representing several countries, for which I was proud to represent the Australian contingent (along with a brief lecture) with our “Australasian College of Medical Nutrition”, ACMN. I was also fortunate to meet Mr Shibata an inspiring leader and business partner of Dr Yanagisawa who is helping to lead the way in Injectable Nutrition in Japan.
