Expertise: why humans age, antioxidants, vitamin supplements, vitamin C, vitamin E, calcium, human nutritionBackground: Dr. Ordman received his Ph.D. in biochemistry in 1974 at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, a department distinguished for its work on vitamins. Since 1984 he has been conducting research on why humans age, and in 1994 was selected by the American Association for the Advancement of Science for public service announcements about "Why Humans Age". In October, 1994, he published a paper in AGE on his discovery of the saturating dosage of vitamin C, 500 mg twice a day, which made the page 1 banner headline of USA Today. In 1996, he received a patent on his vitamin C dosage, which was reported in the New York Times. In 1998, he received a patent for a method for testing for saturating dosages of water-soluble substances in the urine, which can be used by individuals to determine if they are getting enough vitamin C, and other water-soluble nutrients in the diet. In 1996, he investigated the proper dosage for calcium supplements, and has a patent on his discovery. In 2006, he published a pilot study on finding the optimal dosage of vitamins C and E.
