This is a record of clinical phenomena observed among two kinds of patients: very hard laborers with inadequate food from a labor farm 1958-1962 and regular villagers from suburban area of a large city 1966-1977. After 2012, the author became a medical volunteer to help patients in those villages through international communication. In the farm, a lot of cases with severe, critical or fatal malnutrition were observed. Thiamin was found versatile in curing nearly all other B vitamins were also useful. These were preliminarily confirmed among the villagers. After 2012, the remotely experienced phenomena were successfully re-checked, including some ENT signs, symptoms, or syndromes such as nose catarrh drops and bleed, rhinitis, hypersecretion of ear wax, and vocal cord paralysis. The purpose of this paper is to introduce therapeutic effects of thiamin, riboflavin and niacin for these almost negligible ENT disorders.
