By Peter Wellers, Associated Press WriterThe Associated Press – SAN FRANCISCO (AP) Peter Wellman has long been known as the father of modern medicine.
But he was just 17 years old when he first began to realize that his work was about to change the face of the world.
It was 1966, when he began to work on a drug that would change the lives of millions of people.
He knew it was a revolutionary discovery that would revolutionize medicine forever.
Now, Weller is a founding director of the Weller Institute, a public-private partnership that is one of the biggest scientific innovations in recent history.
“I was in the basement of my parents’ house, sitting on the porch and reading,” he recalled.
“I remember thinking, ‘I could do this.'”
In the late 1960s and early 1970s, Wellers team was studying the effects of ultraviolet light on the immune system, an area that had long been thought to be relatively inactive.
They found that sunlight could damage cells that had a protein called a tumor suppressor gene, and it could help kill these cells.
“In our lab, we had a very good relationship with the Chinese and they were very interested in this,” said Weller, who now teaches medicine at Stanford University in California.
“We knew that if we could figure out what the effect of ultraviolet sunlight was on a tumor cell, we could use it to develop a drug to kill tumors.
So we started looking for a way to make it.”
That was a very early discovery.
We started by making a compound that could make a vitamin, vitamin D. We were not sure what that was supposed to do.
It was just vitamin D.
“That discovery was the dawn of vitamin D, a vitamin that’s not found in our food or supplements.
It’s found naturally in the skin and hair.
It also has a number of other benefits.
For instance, it’s said to help prevent heart disease, diabetes and cancer.
The first vitamin D pill, for example, was given to nearly all of the people diagnosed with prostate cancer in the United States in the 1970s.
By the 1980s, it was clear that vitamin D had a major role in preventing cancer.
Weller and his colleagues realized that vitamin-D supplements were essential for cancer patients.
They designed a series of tests to monitor their vitamin-d status and then created vitamin-3 supplements that could be taken at bedtime and at any time of day to make sure that they were producing the vitamin-1 and vitamin-2 that would help to protect the body from cancer.
The vitamin-depleted vitamin-A was the next big discovery.
People were taking it at bed time and at every meal.
In 1984, the FDA approved vitamin-a supplements to treat the symptoms of osteoporosis, a condition in which bones fail to form properly.
They were sold for $3,000 a pill, and the FDA has said that more than half of Americans take at least one daily dose.
In 1990, Wellman was hired by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services as a senior scientist and a lead researcher on vitamin-rich pills, called vitamin-fortified pills, that are the most widely used prescription drug.
He worked on several vitamins, and soon he had a new project: What if he could create a pill that was 100 times more effective than vitamin-B1, the one used in the pill we’re all using now?
The pill is now known as vitamin-C, and vitamin C supplements are the standard treatment for many diseases and conditions.
It is also a popular treatment for osteoporsis and depression, for which the pill is sold.”
We looked at the effects that the pill has on our bodies. “
That’s what we did.
We looked at the effects that the pill has on our bodies.
And what we found was it could be the most important drug to ever come along.
It could be that we could make the pill a hundred times more potent than any pill that’s been used before.”
The pills work in a way that was hard to predict.
When people took the pills, they were told to take a certain amount of vitamin-c, or vitamin-E.
When the researchers took vitamin-K and vitamin B-12, they weren’t told to do so.
In fact, vitamin-k was not included.
That made it impossible to determine how much of a difference the vitamin C pills would make in terms of how much people could take, and how much they would need to be taken in order to get the same effect.
Weller found that a pill called Vitamin-K could be administered by a person in a day to a day-long, two-pill regimen.
In a study of about 1,000 people, those who took vitamin K-rich capsules showed a statistically significant improvement in their vitamin D levels
