One of these experts is Dr. Thomas Levy, a medical doctor and also a board-certified lawyer. Dr. Levy has done a lot of research on vitamin C and its impact on chronic diseases.
As a result of his research, Dr. Levy has also written several books. One of them is "Curing the Incurable, Vitamin C, Infectious Diseases, and Toxins”.
