Dr. Linus Pauling was the only man in the world to have won two unshared Nobel prizes. He devoted himself to the struggle against diseases and to the benefits of vitamin C. According to him, "People who take vitamins in optimum amounts can live 25 or 35 years longer than otherwise. More than that, they will be free of disease. This optimum nutrition cuts down the probability of developing cancer, or heart disease or diabetes, or infectious diseases." He wrote the book "How to Live Longer and Feel Better" championing the role of Vitamin C in fighting cancer and other diseases in the human body. Dr. Pauling himself took megadoses of Vitamin C. He led a very fruitful and healthy life until August 19, 1994, when he died at the ripe age of 93.
