]What if Franklin D. Roosevelt Lived Longer Because of Ascorbic Acid
FDR was a heavy smoker who suffered from a chronic sinus infection. Before antibiotics cocaine was the drug of choice at that time for treating nasal problems. The use of cocaine would shrink the nasal membranes offering immediate relief, while also numbing the area, preparing it for the insertion of a syringe needle for flushing.
Franklin D. Roosevelt’s polio began in 1921 at age 39 when he got a fever after exercising during a vacation in Canada. It would be another ten years before Claus W. Jungeblut M.D would be experimenting with ascorbic acid in treating polio. If Dr. Jungeblut could have treated President Roosevelt with intra venous injections of ascorbic acid it probably would have been at an advanced stage of his polio. He would have already suffered severe nerve and muscle damage. Since FDR was generally an ill person the optimal doses of ascorbic acid would have exceeded the optimal doses that Jungeblut used experimentally. We do know that in the late 40’s (after the death of President Roosevelt) Frederick R. Klenner M.D greatly exceeded the optimal doses of ascorbic acid previously used by Dr. Jungeblut in treating viral illnesses.
If Claus Jungeblut M.D was able to give President Roosevelt regular intra-venous injections of ascorbic acid at optimal doses (that he was comfortable at giving), FDR would have been able to maintain a level of good health but not optimal health. He probably would not be cured of his polio but the general quality of his health would have been good. Two things may have happened. First, President Roosevelt might have been taking enough ascorbic acid such that the amount of cocaine used for his sinus infections could have been greatly reduced. Secondly, there was the possibility the intra-venous injections of ascorbic acid may have eliminated the need for cocaine treatments for his chronic sinus infections.
In the 21st Century Indu B. Chatterjee of India has been doing marvelous work with ascorbic acid concerning cigarette smoke-related fatal diseases. Dr. Chatterjee has stated that “besides having the importance of vitamin C in our day to day nutrition, our recent work indicates that vitamin C is really a panacea for preventing cigarette smoke-related fatal diseases like, emphysema, cardiovascular disease, and also lung cancer.” Dr. Chatterjee continues to state that a moderate intake of vitamin C about 2g or 2000mg a day by smokers should almost completely prevent cigarette smoke-induced diseases. It is believed that the amount of ascorbic acid that Franklin Delano Roosevelt would have received from Claus W Jungeblut M.D would have been at or slightly exceeded the 2000mg per day that Dr. Chatterjee has been using to prevent cigarette smoke-induced diseases.
There is some belief among historians that FDR’s early death set the United States of America back 75-100 years in social and political development. There is the distinct possibility that the United States would not have dropped the atomic bomb on Japan had President Roosevelt live longer because of better health through intra-venous injections of ascorbic acid. If FDR had been in good health there may not have been a Cold War (“The Cold War is the name given to the relationship that developed primarily between the USA and the USSR after World War Two. The Cold War was to dominate international affairs for decades [1947 to 1991] and many major crises occurred - the Cuban Missile Crisis, Vietnam, Hungary and the Berlin Wall being just some. For many, the growth in weapons of mass destruction was the most worrying issue”). The 1964 Civil Rights Act may have passed sooner had President Roosevelt lived longer because of good health.
