The University of Otago’s Free Radical Research Group claim vitamin C can help curb the growth of cancer cells. “Our results offer a promising and simple intervention to help in our fight against cancer at the level of both prevention and cure,” associate professor Margreet Vissers said.

Details of the research are published in the latest edition of the Cancer Research journal.
