This is so important and should have been implemented months ago- I wonder why not - probably because it costs so little and makes Big Pharma no money ;I

Its a shame that such important work is not funded by UK Government in place of other, related studies I know they are funding. But good luck anyhow - if the trials are water-tight eg RCT, and results good, surely the Government must consider?

This is a vitally important area to provide proof of concept and feasibility so that broader NHS adoption is achieved. It equally important to protect the more vulnerable within our communities at this time

I am a chef in a care home, and although we offer a very good menu to our residents they eat only small amounts of food, which needs to be more nutrient dense. Some of them have quite a sweet tooth, which will drive brain problems too. I have tried to make suggestions about more fruit and less sugar, but unable to make a real difference with this. I have created recipes to ensure vitamin and minerals RVs are met, but nobody listening. Good luck with this study, I hope you can make a difference to all those malnourished residents that I see

Wonderful to see research like this being undertaken, with a potential for improving vulnerable people's health with something as simple as Vitamin C. It's a shame that government and public health bodies do not appear to be contributing to such a potentially important and significant study.

it is great what patrick holford is doing,as in the united kingdom they do not recognise the health benefits that alternative medicine can do for peoples health especially older people in our care homes.
