They said eating papaya or taking ascorbic acid is dangerous during pregnancy because it leads to natural abortion..Is this true?

Never heard that one: I don't think this is a real thing. Moderate consumption of fruit like papaya and intake of Ascorbic Acid (vitamin c) in non excessive quantities shouldn't be an issue. I would be more concerned with taking in high mercury containing fish since you are on a pacific island. ...Read more

Is it ok to take 2 multivitamins + iron,ascorbic acid 500mg,and folic during pregnancy?

Is it ok to take 2 multivitamins + iron,ascorbic acid 500mg,and folic during pregnancy?

Probably: I'm not sure if the vitamins you are taking are specifically pre-natal vitamins; it is good they contain iron. You should compare a label of pre-natal vitamins with what you are taking to make sure they are roughly identical. Probably don't need two! The folic acid is fine. You likely don't need the vitamin C as it is probably in your multiple/pre-natal. Too much can be harmful. Best wishes:) ...Read more

You : You are considering an abortion using mega-dose vitamin c . Is it safe? No. What kind of health problems can it cause for you? Diarrhea, abdominal cramps, headache, gastritis or stomach ulcerations, anemia, constipation, increased flatus, hot flashes, joint pain and loss of body stores of copper. When combined with Aspirin or anticoagulants there can be adverse interactions. There are a variety of conditions that prevent adequate metabolism of vitamin c, so you would not urinate out the excess. The proposed mechanism of action is that vitamin c interferes with the production of progesterone. Herbal abortions work by poisoning you. The theory is that it your toxin levels will be so high, that the it will kill the embryo. Because, this is a very dangerous business, it can also kill you or make you very ill. The success rate with killing the embryo is actually rather low. I recommend that if you are going to be sexually active that you use some form of birth control responsibly. ...Read more

What is the treatment for ascorbic acid overdose?

What is the treatment for ascorbic acid overdose?

No such thing unless: In general vitamin c is extremely safe and non-toxic and you can not overdose, in the sense of taking a quantity that would damage your health. There is a limit to how much you can absorb, and when this amount is exceeded you won't absorb any more and it will act as a laxative.The exception is people who have a hereditary g6pd deficiency, in which high doses of IV vit c can cause hemolytic anemia. ...Read more
