Abstract: Lykkesfeldt and Poulsen's review has a promising title, and in the introductory paragraph, they state that ‘over the years, it has been suggested that vitamin C be used as a remedy against many diseases as different as common colds and cancers’(1). Given their title and introduction, one would expect a discussion about randomised controlled trials (RCT) on vitamin C and the common cold. However, this topic is ignored in their review. This is an unfortunate omission because the common cold studies give interesting information on the issues that Lykkesfeldt and Poulsen discuss.
