In this study, we investigated the impact of vitamin C on cervical cancer cells at varying concentrations. After adding vitamin C reagent to plated HeLa cells, we performed cytotoxicity assays to measure cell viability. We hypothesized that higher concentrations of vitamin C would lead to lower cell viability, as vitamin C is predicted to cause cell death in cancer cells. Our results indicated that higher concentrations of vitamin C do not necessarily correlate with lower cell viability of cervical cancer cells.
