Over 50 years ago, Dr. Linus Pauling concluded that vitamins and other essential micronutrients play a significant role in enhancing health and preventing disease. Thus, in 1973, he co-founded the Linus Pauling Institute to carry out research in this field that he believed would be of enormous importance to public health. Donor support to the Institute has been vital in continuing the Pauling legacy into the 21st century.

The Linus Pauling Institute's mission is to help everyone, everywhere live longer and feel better through a better understanding of the food that we eat diet and the supplements that we take. Our programs focus on healthy aging, cancer intervention, and the health benefits of consuming or taking certain dietary factors. 

Help us find new ways to achieve optimum health.
