Abstract: This document contains the Protocol for a Cochrane review. A review was prepared, but it was not published. We found strong evidence that vitamin C has prevented atrial fibrillation outside of the USA. The Cochrane review manuscript is available at: The review was not rejected because of valid scientific reasons, see responses to reviewer comments at: The Cochrane editors rejection statement is shown below. However, there is no description why the topic has low priority. Thus, was the low priority caused by effects seen only outside of the USA or because vitamin C is not interesting in the view of the Cochrane editors. A shortened version was published in BMC Cardiovascular Disorders: ## Reason for withdrawal from publication: The CRG withdrew this protocol as the current author team is unable to progress to the final stage of the review. The editors consider this title as low priority for the current portfolio of the Heart Group and therefore this title is not open to a new author team.
