You said in your article it was a "moment of bad luck".  This wasn't bad luck.  It was ignorance or laziness because he wasn't wearing safety glasses.  He, like thousands of people every day, put their (and their family's) livelihood or life at risk for not taking basic safety precautions.  Nobody thinks it is going to happen to them and if it does it was bad luck.  WRONG!

Hi Maggie,
I've read your article about Vitamin C and cancer :
http://www.nbcnews.com/health/cancer/vitamin-c-may-help-cancer-treatment-study-finds-n23066

The NIH ( National Institute of Health) still doesn't want to approve such therapy (http://www.cancer.gov/about-cancer/treatment/cam/patient/vitamin-c-pdq)

I'm a movie director, with my team we want to shoot a documentary movie that will show how vitamin C can cure many diseases around the world . Would you be so kind to write an article about it ? Here is the link : http://vitaminc-movie.org/

Thanks a lot, have a good day

Thomas
