Somebody has misled you, please do not mess it up. There is no where proven that vitamin c injection can kill tumor cells in the body. Indeed consuming vitamin c containing foods reduces the incidence of cancer but does not stop it. Vitamin C is an anti-oxidant helps in rejuvenation of the weak cells in the body and reduces the incidence of cancer to a certain extent and also keep the body fit.
