In January 2004 the YACHT reported for the first time about an amazingly effective method against seasickness. The Austrian professor Reinhart Jarisch advocates taking vitamin C with great success. But there is no scientific evidence.
The required double-blind study is currently taking place in the Navy's training center in Neustadt. Test subjects have to endure 20 minutes in a life raft in a wave pool on two consecutive days. One hour before the test, they are given a tablet. Nobody knows if it's a placebo or the two gram vitamin C pill. That will only become apparent during the evaluation.
The first series of tests already produced remarkable results, which are described in the YACHT report. The difference between the two days was significant for all test subjects. But at 14 the number of subjects was still too small. Therefore YACHT readers can help to provide the historical proof.
The second part of the study takes place in the 50th calendar week. Further tests are planned. Applications by email: [email protected]; Info: 0431 / 5409-1515 or -1702.
