1885 Florida Medical Association published "Ozone" by Charles J. Kenworthy, M. D., M.R.S.V. from Jacksonville Florida. This proves that ozone was in regular medical usage in the U.S. before 1885, and therefore predates the 1906 Pure Food and Drug Act, its subsequent revisions, and the FDA as well. Therefore, ozone's medical usage is grand fathered in the United States, and held as perfectly legal for any M.D. to use without censure. Ozone generating medical devices are claimed by the FDA to be a separate question (Note: see commentary further on about Dr. Willner's case in 1991).
1896 Sept 22 Inventor genius Nikola Tesla patents the first ozone generator in the U.S.
1898 Institute for Oxygen Therapy-Healing started in Berlin by Thauerkauf and Luth. First injection of ozone into animals, first bonding of ozone to solid form products (Haemozon, now Homozon). Proprietary bonding technology method still unknown and unbelieved by all but certain American, German and Russian scientists. The chemistry is substantiated in Russian texts.
1898 Dr. Benedict Lust from Germany practicing in NY. He was the originator and founder of Naturopathy, and wrote many books and articles on ozone.
1900 Medical ozone was used in the U.S. by Nikola Tesla who formed the "Tesla Ozone Company" which was the first company to use high voltage, high frequency, low amperage AC systems and was granted many ozone patents. Medical ozone and ozone products were used widely in the beginning of the century and their use actually predates the FDA's inception in 1906.
1902 J.H. Clarke's "A dictionary of Practical Materia Medica," London, describes the successful medical use of "Oxygenium" in treating Anemia, Cough, Cancer, Diabetes, Influenza, Morphine poisoning, Canker Sores, Strychnine poisoning, Whooping-cough. Oxygenium is ozone charged water.
1902 Dr. Chas. O. Linder M.D. was written up in Spokane, WA "Centennial" magazine as injecting medical ozone and commonly using state of the art ozone equipment in his medical practice.
1904 Ozone charged olive oil has been sold in pharmacies for years all over the U.S. and used by thousands of physicians under the trade name "Glycozone." As reported in nineteenth edition of "The Medical Uses of Hydrozone and Glycozone" by Chas. Marchand. The New York Chemist's 339 page book is in the Library of Congress with the U.S. Surgeon general's stamp of approval on it.
1910 (+/-) Tesla's "Violet Ray" ozone producing device commonly sold all over U.S. under many brand names and configurations, even finding its way into the Sears catalogue. Many had provisions for therapeutic breathing of strong concentrations of ozone after bubbling it through certain organic essential oils. Violet Ray now available through all beauty supply shops in the U.S..
Copyright 1911, 13, 15, 16, 19, 20 Noble M. Eberhart M.D., Ph. D., D.C.L. was published by New Medicine Publishing Company.

He used ozone in Tuberculosis, Anemia and Chlorosis, Chronic middle ear deafness and Tinnitus, Whooping Cough, Asthma, Bronchitis and Hay Fever, Insomnia, Pneumonia, Nervous Disability, Diabetes, Gout, and "Its beneficial action in syphilis has been attested by many physicians."
"Ozonizing the air of a patients room is the best method of employing ozone in this disease (tuberculosis)."
"In one sense of the word, since oxygen is so essential, it might be easily claimed that ozone was indicated in any bodily ailment... there are some diseases in which it is of particular benefit. Among these are anemia; all diseases off the respiratory organs, including tuberculosis; infectious diseases; and all conditions where there is imperfect oxidation and impaired nutrition."
"H. de LaCoux, Chemical Expert to the Council of the Prefecture of the Siene, Paris, says: "In the application of ozone for tuberculosis, it is an undeniable clinical fact the number of bacilli in the sputum diminishes after the second or third treatment, even before the general condition of the patient is improved."
"Dr. George Stoker, London, reports nine cases of tuberculosis treated within a year at the Stoker Oxygen Hospital, of which eight were discharged with the disease definitely arrested."
1913 Eastern American Association for Oxygen Therapy formed by Dr. Blass and German associates
1914 Nov 20th, Dr. Charles O. Linder was advertising the availability "At a great expense" on his part, of his new medical ozone machine in the Vol 1 No. 1 "Not yet named Magazine" at the Apple Show near Spokane, WA. He was passing the ozone through Eucalyptus, Pine, and Cedar oils as scrubbers before inhalation of the gas.
1920 Dr. Charles S. Neiswanger, M.D. publishes "Electro Therapeutical Practice" Ritchie and Company, Chicago. "A Ready Reference Guide for Physicians in the Use of Electricity and the X-Rays." Chapter 32 "Ozone as a Therapeutic Agent." Dr. Neiswanger was the President and Professor General Electro- Therapy Illinois School of Electro Therapeutics; Chicago Hospital College of Medicine. "Ozone acts as a powerful antiseptic in contact with diseased mucous surfaces, consequently its beneficial action is quickly apparent in the treatment of bronchial and laryngeal affections, catarrh, hay fever and all diseases of the respiratory organs."
1929 "Ozone and Its Therapeutic Action." Book names 114 diseases and applications of ozone and prints the research from the centers and doctors centers using ozone.

1930 May 3rd, Journal of The American Medical Association article: "The Therapeutic Use of Oxygen in Coronary Thrombosis" by Robert L. Levy, M.D., and Alvan L. Barach, M.D. Oxygen tents help oxygen starved heart attack victims.
1930 German dental physician E.A. Fisch was regularly using ozone in his dental practice in Zurich Switzerland and writes large number of ozone papers in Italian, French, and German. Patents the "Cytozon," the first dental use ozone apparatus.
1931 Dr. Otto Warburg wins first Nobel Prize for work proving cancer is caused by a lack of oxygen in the cells. He states in "The Prime Cause and Prevention of Cancer" that the cause of cancer is no longer a mystery, we know it occurs whenever any cell is denied 60% of its oxygen requirements. This occurs through a buildup of pollution or toxicity within and around the cell which blocks and then damages the cellular oxygen respiration mechanism.
1932 renowned Austrian surgeon Dr. Erwin Payr receives ozone therapy and thereby learns of medical ozone by treatment from E. A. Fisch. Goes on to use ozone in his medical practice, increasing its acceptability in surgery.
1935 Nov. Societe Francais d'Electrotherapie et de Radiologie publishes M. Sourdeau (Le Mans) paper on "Ozone in Therapy" Four machines to produce ozone have been installed in the Electro- Radiology service in Beaujon-Clichy.
1938 Parisian Medical Bulletin - Bul Med Paris 52 or 42:745- 749, Paul Aubourg, Honorary Electro-Radiologist in the Hospitals of Paris, publishes "Medical Ozone: Production, Dosage, and Methods of Clinical Application Using rectal insufflation he noted that of 465 patients, the colon capacity varied from 150 to 800ccs (no megacolons), so everyone was x-ray photographed to ascertain the proper dosage without forcing the ilio-caecal valve. Ozone injections into wounds last for 6 to 15 minutes, verified by laboratory bacteriological results. Vaginal insufflations were common. Breathable concentrations of ozone were routinely applied to infected sinuses. Intermuscular injections were abandoned as too painful and ineffective. In 8000 applications of ozone, there were no accidents or harmful side effects.
1938 Paul Aubourg "Results of 119 cases of coliform infection treated by ozone in Beaujon-Clichy." Presse Med 1938; 46:1987- 1900.
1940's German Doctor Hans Wolfe wrote the book "Medical Ozone."
1940's FDA starts seizing ozone machines, and this policy continues to this day.
1940's "Polyzone," "Aetheozone," and other ozone machines were marketed in the U.S.
1942 "Gordon Detoxification and Hydro Surgery - Theory and Practice" book published covering medical uses of ozone as colon cleanser.
1943 During the Second World war, Dr. Robert Mayer treated the FBI prisoners of war in the Ellis Island, NY POW camp. Dr. Mayer subsequently learned of medical ozone from one of the German prisoners and has since been applying ozone to patients in the United States for over 45 years. Dr. Mayer is a pediatrician, and has safely and effectively given ozone therapy to over 12 thousand people, most of them children. He pioneered the technique of ozone being injected directly into the spinal fluid to end meningitis. Dr. Mayer has authored many medical papers including:
"Using Ozone As A Chemotherapeutic Agent For the Treatment Of Diseases" Out of compassion, he recently came out of retirement (he's in his seventies) and began treating hundreds of AIDS patients with medical ozone.
1944 Dr. Otto Warburg wins second Nobel Prize for his work linking cancer to damaged cell respiration due to a lack of oxygen at the cellular level.
1951 June Dr. William Turska, Chairman of the Committee on Scientific Research of the American Naturopathic Association publishes in the Journal of the American Naturopathic Association "Oxidation." Dr. Turska pioneered the breathing of Aethozol (ozone passed through selected oils). He also pioneered and maintained one of the best methods of putting ozone into the body was to put up to 250 cc's directly into the portal circulation via the rectal veins with no pain, discomfort, or side effects. With repeated application, this completely cleans the liver.
1953 Dr. Hans Wolff, general practitioner in Frankfurt, Germany starts his own ozone clinic after coming into contact with and learning about ozone from Dr. Hanseler.
1954 "Oxygen: Master Of Cancer" book published by Frank Totney.
1956 Feb 24 Two time Nobel Prize winner Dr. Otto Warburg (who won this prestigious award for discovering and proving that cellular respiration, once damaged by a lack of oxygen, caused cells to mutate uncontrollably and turn into cancer cells) publishes in SCIENCE 24 February 1956, Volume 123, Number 3191 "On the Origin Of Cancer Cells."
1958 - 1973 Dr. Robert Mayer and Dr. Edmund J. Ryan were granted 8 ozone patents. 1950, 55, 58 patent # 3,063,904 granted Nov. 13, 1962: "Polymeric Oxygen (Ozone) In Blood and Sera Treatment and the Product Thereof."
1961 Encyclopedia of Chemical Technology, Volume 16, Third Edition. John Wiley and Sons. The symptoms of breathing high concentrations of ozone are acute, there appear to be no chronic affects among normally healthy people because the body has the ability to repair such damages. "No free radical reactions which directly involve ozone have been observed. During the 80 year history of the large scale usage of ozone, there has never been a human death attributed to it."
1965 Senator Edward Long holds U.S. Senate hearings where Dr. Herbert Ley, FDA Commissioner testifies that the FDA "protects" the big drug companies and are subsequently rewarded, and using the government's police powers they attack those who threaten the big drug companies.
"People think what the FDA is protecting them. It isn't. What the FDA is doing and what the public thinks it's doing are as different as night and day.
"First it is providing a means whereby key individuals on its payroll are able to obtain both power and wealth through granting special favors to certain politically influential groups that are subject to its regulation. This activity is similar to the 'protection racket' of organized crime: for a price, one can induce FDA administrators to provide 'protection' from the FDA itself."
Secondly, as a result of this political favoritism, the FDA has become a primary factor in that formula whereby cartel oriented companies in the food and drug industry are able to use the police powers of government to harass or destroy their free market competitors.
"And thirdly, the FDA occasionally does some genuine public good with whatever energies it has left over after serving the vested political and commercial interest of its first two activities." - Barry Lynes, "The Healing of Cancer" Marcus Books, Queensville, Ontario, Canada.
1966 June 20 Meeting of Nobel Laureates: "The Prime Cause and Prevention of Cancer With Two Prefaces On Prevention." Dr. Warburg delivers revised lecture at the meeting of the Nobel Laureates at Lindau, Lake Constance, Germany. He is the Director of the Max Planck Institute For Cell Physiology, Berlin Dahlmer; English edition published by Dean Burk, National Cancer Institute, Bethesda Maryland, USA 1967.
1969 U.S. Congress studies the FDA and states that 37 of the top 49 officials of the FDA who left the agency moved into high corporate positions with the large companies they had regulated.
1971 Dr. Hans Wolf (President) and Prof. Dr. Siegfried Rilling (Vice President) founded The German Medical Society for Ozone Therapy.
1972 The International Association For Oxygen Therapy, Dr. George Freibott, President, emerges. Association formed out of International Oxidation Institute, which came from the Eastern American Association for Oxygen Therapy
1975 U.S. G.A.O. Government General Accounting Office studied the FDA and revealed that 150 FDA officials owned stock in the companies they were supposed to regulate.
1976 The FDA publishes in the Federal Register 21 CFR 801.415 Dated 2/13/76, amended 7/24/85, and 9/27/89: "Ozone is a toxic gas with no known medical uses." Ed McCabe comments in "The Family News:" "Printing this statement in a publication paid for with our taxes is either a blatant attempt at suppression of truth from the highest levels, or one of the poorest research jobs ever done. It obviously favors competitive therapies, and ignores well over 50 years of safe and effective medical use on hundreds of thousands of humans - backed up with thousands of medical references and clinical studies in Switzerland, Italy, France, Germany, Australia, New Zealand, Mexico, and the U.S."
1978 FDA reports 1.5 million people were hospitalized in the USA due to side effects from medication. On the other hand, medical ozone has been legally used in clinics worldwide on a daily basis since the forties. In Germany, Ozone side effects are typically minor irritations that are caused by incorrect application and quickly disappear. This side effect rate is incredibly far, far, lower than U.S. drug therapy side effect rates wherein each year approximately 140,000 people die from prescription drug usage. That's two and a half times more Americans than were killed in Vietnam.
1979 First case of AIDS treated by medical ozone therapy. Dr. George Freibott, ND from the International Association of Oxygen Therapy saw his first AIDS case. A Haitian living in Avon Park, Florida came to him with Kaposi's Sarcoma mouth lesions and was treated with medical ozone in rectal insufflations, ozone colonics, and direct ozone IV injection off and on for 1 1\2 years, only once a week. All external lesions were healed.
1979 Dr Hans Wolff publishes his book on ozone.
1980 Aug 22nd Sweet F, Kao M S, Lee S-CD (Dept of obstetrics and Gynecology, Washington University School of Medicine, St Louis, Mo) and W. Hagar (St Louis Air Pollution Control) publish in "Science" Vol 209: 931-933, a U.S. peer reviewed scientific journal, their study: "Ozone Selectively Inhibits Human Cancer Cell Growth." They announce "Evidently the mechanisms for defense against ozone damage are impaired in human cancer cells." "All of the cancer cells (lung, breast, uterine and endometrial) showed marked dose-dependent growth inhibition in ozone at .3 and .5 ppm" while the normal cells were not affected. "Evidently cancer cells are less able to compensate for the oxidative burden of ozone than normal cells." They also stated that ozone inhibits cancer 40 to 60%, and up to 90% in a dose dependant manner, yet there is no response from mainstream medicine.
1980 Jan The German Medical Society for Ozone Therapy commissioned Marie Theresa Jacobs and Prof. Dr. Dr. Hergetbegan from the University Kilnikum Giessen and the Institute for Medical Statistics and Documentation of Giessen University to begin an inquiry entitled "Adverse Effects and Typical Complications In Ozone Therapy." 2,815 questionnaires were sent out to all western German ozone therapists known by the Medical Society for Ozone Therapy (AGO, Arztliche Gesellschaft fur Ozontherapie). 884 went to physicians and 1931 to therapists.
1980 May By now, The German Medical Society had collected 1,044 replies, or 37% of the total. The replies that were returned stated 384,775 patients were treated with ozone with a minimum of 5,579,238 applications and the side effect rate observed was only .000005 per application! The report also stated "The majority of adverse effects were caused by ignorance about ozone therapy (operator error)." The University of Innsbruck's Forensic Institute published Dr. Zacob's dissertation quoting this in The Empirical Medical Acts of Germany.
1982 German medical textbook published: "Medical Ozone" 2nd Ed. by Dr. Ewald Fischer Medical Publications in Heidelberg.
1983 "Ozone As Therapy In Herpes Simplex and Herpes Zoster Diseases;" Mattassi R. MD, D'Angelo F. MD, Franchina A. MD, Bassi, P. MD. Santa Corona Hospital, Division of Vascular Surgery and Neurology, Milano, Italy 58 cases of Herpes Simplex showed complete recovery in two to five days following ozone therapy. "Results, Herpes Zoster: in all patients healing of skin lesions were observed after a minimum of 5 and a maximum of 12 ozone injections. Herpes Simplex: all patients healed after 1-5 injections. (Daily endovenous injections of 20cc of an oxygen-ozone mixture.
1983 June The chairman of neurosurgery at Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia, Dr. Jewell Osterholm, announced that stroke damage can be reversed with spinal injections of an oxygen-rich mixture. Experiments on lab cats showed the procedure does reverse stroke damage.

"OZONE DECONTAMINATION OF BLOOD and BLOOD PRODUCTS" Medizone states all stored blood can be decontaminated with ozone, and all HIV can be eliminated. Medizone applies for human test approval. Despite 50 years of medical ozone's use on humans by over 7,000 physicians, and flawless animal studies, the FDA won't allow human testing in the U.S.
1987 Dr. Horst Kief, Heidelberg, FRG, announces successful treatment of 3 AIDS patients brought from Stage 8 back to Stage 1 at his German clinic using autohemotherapy ozone/1 gram vitamin C therapies. Dr. Kief states "You can kill the AIDS virus with ozone therapy... No side effects." 15 ARC patients exhibit "full remission." Gained weight, T cells went from 300 back up to 1500 (normal), gone back to work. "One patient was so weak he couldn't turn on the radio. After only 3 treatments, he walks to the bathroom unaided." Typical treatment twice a week (method now outdated), continues for 7 to 11 months.
1987 Dr. Hans Neiper, an ozone using doctor in Hanover, FRG, worked with NASA, past president of a German Oncology in an interview by videographer Jeff Harsh, talks about his colon cancer work. Although he can't divulge the name of his patients, "President Reagan is a very nice man." And, "You wouldn't believe how many FDA officials or relatives or acquaintances of FDA officials come to see me as patients in Hanover. You wouldn't believe this, or directors of the American Medical Association, or American Cancer Association, or the presidents of orthodox cancer institutes. That's the fact."

1987? FDA contacts 15-20 MD's who have bought Hansler German ozone machines from a U.S. importer (McGrath/Boeve) and demands they all turn in the generating tubes. Some comply, some ignore them.
1987 H G Knoch, W Roschke, W Klug publish in The German Articles of Colo Proctology (Aktuelle Koloproktologie) 1987; Band 4: 161-173 "The use of Ozone Therapy In Proctology" (Die Sauerstaff-Ozontherapie in der Proktologie" After studying the work of Leipzig Surgeon E. Payer since 1936, they stated "It is known that the rectal application of oxygen/ozone has a therapeutical effect on diseases of the rectum and colon.
Animals. Animal experiments were conducted to clarify the O2 diffusion through the wall of the colon, and the increase of PO2 in the venous and arterial blood flow...when O2 and O2/O3 gas insufflation was applied." Using 10 rabbits averaging 2500 g rectal insufflation was applied. After O2/O3 gas was applied at 5.1 mg over 10 seconds, the PaO2 was up 300%. O2 diffuses through the wall of the colon and increases the O2 concentration in the vascular system and the liver.
"Due to the known properties of ozone (bactericidal, circulatory enhancement, virucidal, fungicidal, hemostatic, wound leaning and metabolic stimulant), its rectal application is also recommended for human patients."
Clinical human examinations: "An adult human tolerates 800 ml of an ozone/oxygen gas mixture applied rectally over a period of one minute without any complaints." "Gas absorption is slow, on average within one hour." Both the oxygen and the oxygen/ozone mixture is absorbed through the wall of the large intestine, enters the blood stream and results in a PaO2 increase within the entire organism." "No adverse effects occur when ozone is applied."
(Ozone is) Recommended for colitis and proctitis and is "superior to all previously known methods of therapy. In proctology, we view the indication of rectal insufflation to be valid for colitis." " 16 patients with hepatitis B were given ozone and compared to a control group. Those who got the ozone had an increase in wellbeing and 75% of those treated could be placed in the "healed" category within a period of 14 days.
1988 Historian Eustice Mullins writes: "The Office of Technology Assessment of the U.S. Government states that 95% of the prescription and over the counter drugs on the market have not been proven to work."
1988 "International Bio-Oxidative Medical Foundation" Charles H. Farr, M.D. President, is formed by several hundred U.S. M.D.'s trying to advance oxygen therapies in the U.S. by publishing their successful clinical results. Yearly meetings attended by physicians from all over the world.
1988 Dr. Gerard Sunnen publishes: "Ozone in Medicine: Overview and Future Directions" in The Journal of Advancement in Medicine. Dr. Sunnen, at the Bellevue Medical Center in New York City, lists medical ozone as commonly being used worldwide on: "Herpes, AIDS, and Flu. Wounds, burns, staph infections, fungal and radiation injuries, and gangrene. Colitis, fistulae, hemorrhoids and anal infections. It promotes healing. Blood ozone treatments have been used to treat virus infections including: AIDS, hepatitis, flu, some cancers, diabetes and arteriosclerosis. Used in dental surgery, periodontal disease, mixed in water and swallowed for use on gastric cancer, and applied as a wash in intestinal or bladder inflammation. Mixed with olive oil it is used on fungal growths and skin ulcers. Ozone baths are used to irrigate the skin, to disinfect and treat eczema and skin ulcers. "All of the world's blood supplies may be made bacteria and virus free (AIDS, etc.) by passing 40-50 mcg/ml of ozone through them."

Becomes best seller.
1988 June Dr. Scott Ricke and inventor Basil Wainwright conducted an HIV in vivo scientific study involving five patients in Nogales, Mexico. In just ten days of treatment, Ozone and a new AIDS monoclonal measurement process developed by Epitope, Inc. demonstrated a reduction of 28% and higher of viral activity.
1988 July "The Treatment of Viral Diseases with Ozone" published in "Erfahrungsheilkunde," Number 7, July 1988 by Dr. Horst Kief "Ozone is highly effective against viruses... The present study provides statistical proof of its extraordinary efficacy in cases of chronic aggressive hepatitis... In the case of AIDS and ARC patients,... hyperbaric ozone therapy can lead to astonishing improvement in the clinical status..."
1988 Sept Dr. William Closon, M.D. working with Basil Wainwright at Brunswick Blood Laboratories establish that the precise non- cytotoxic window of ozone concentration to achieve maximum HIV viral inactivation is 2% by weight, or approximately 27 micrograms per milliliter.
1988? Boguslaw Lipinski, Ph.D., Boston Cardiovascular Health Center and Tufts University School of Medicine, Wellesley, MA publishes "Rationale For Treatment Of Cancer With Ozone." Citing 35 medical references, Dr. Lipinski concludes "Preliminary clinical studies indicate that oxidative therapy might produce desirable results in cancer treatment."
1988 Sep Dr. Horst Kief presents his findings at the Fourth International Conference on AIDS. He followed 13 AIDS patients for 12 months of treatment, Kief suggested that the absolute CD- 4 count could be increased in such patients and their T$/T* quotient returned towards normal through ozone Therapy.
1989 William Campbell Douglass, M.D. publishes "AIDS, The End Of Civilization" In it he says, "At present we have the ambulance- at-the-bottom-of-the-cliff mentality in which the only solution entertained is to pick up the bodies rather than go to the top of the cliff and solve the problem." Dr. Douglass visited scores of empty villages in Africa where whole tribes had died of AIDS. He reports seeing mound after mound of burial sites along roadsides in which natives were buried when and where they fell dead. Dr. Douglass now actively promoting blood ozonation\UV (photophoresis) treatments in the U.S.
1989 April-May Raum and Zeit Vol 1, No. 1, "The Treatment of Virus Infections with Ozone-Oxygen Mixtures;" Alexander Preuss M.D. (Preuss's work was featured in Ed McCabe's book "Oxygen Therapies" in 1988) He cites 8 of his AIDS case studies wherein ozone therapy had dramatically improved their health. "Therefore I may conclude that AIDS in the state of an opportunistic infection is treatable for at least 17 months - nobody has to die from it any longer."
1989 July "Ozone Science and Engineering" Vol 11 pp. 411-417 publishes Immunological Examinations In Patients With Chronic Conditions Under Administration Of Ozone/Oxygen Mixtures;" J. Washutti, R. Viebahn, I. Steiner "... a significant increase in IgG, the most important immunoglobulin in the immune system... must be assessed as an immunostimulation. ...no immunosuppresive effect occurs,... On a long term basis, no kind of immunosuppressive behavior caused by ozone application can be found in the dosage range selected.

1989 Aug 8th "Newsweek" Vol. 114, No.6, P. 50 A highly developed AIDS underground composed of entrepreneurs and AIDS activists smuggles unsanctioned drugs and even an ozone- injection machine into the United States. Desperate people feel the underground network is the only hope they have.
1989 Sep Dr. Harald Vetter ND of 8126 Hohenpeissenberg, Germany publishes "AIDS, Can Ozone Help?" the meticulously documented results of his application of 600 ml autohemotherapy ozone therapies to 100 patients with AIDS (44 with AIDS / WR 6, 47 with ARC / WR 3-5, 9 with Lymphadenopathy (LAS) / WR 1-2. An insurance expert reviewed a typical case and declared such dramatic improvements are in fact almost incredible.
1988 Oct 26 Associated Press "Ozone may limit AIDS Symptoms?" Bethesda Naval Hospital's Dr. Kenneth Wagner reports ozone stopped the HIV virus from multiplying, and left cells undamaged. Dr. Steven Kleinman from The American Red Cross says it should be experimented with further. AP then reports on Dr. Carpendale, Chief of Rehabilitative Services at the San Francisco VA Hospital's ozone study controlling diarrhea, and possibly hindering the AIDS virus.
1988 Nov 28 "Insight" Vol. 4, No. 48, P. 56 by Dina Van Pelt. Ozone may be able to kill HIV without harming infected blood cells. The Bethesda Naval Hospital in Maryland conducted tests on HIV infected blood in which ozone killed the virus without damaging the cells that contained it. Dr. Kenneth F. Wagner, senior research physician for HIV research at the Henry M. Jackson Foundation for the Advancement of Military Medicine in Rockville, MD., says that European physicians have safely used ozone to safely treat viruses for years. In a study of five patients at San Francisco's VA Hospital, all five showed significant improvement without signs of toxicity.
1989 FIRST MODERN U.S. HOSPITAL TEST OF OZONE ON HUMANS STOPPED George Perez, M.D., Dir. of Virology at Saint Michaels Med Center, Newark, NJ, and Chief Investigator of the hospital's Institutional Review Board was commissioned to undertake a 75 day institutional review board supervised ozone/AIDS protocol. 5 terminally ill AIDS patients underwent only 15 days of ozone treatments at Saint Michaels Hospital in Newark, New Jersey. The T4 counts of the patients were from a low of 5 to a high of 86. At the start, one was so badly covered with herpes lesions he couldn't wear clothes. All had T-cell counts of below 200. By the end of the 15 days each treatments, the herpes patient's skin had healed, and all had been released from the hospital. No adverse side effects or toxicity could be found. T/4 counts remained stable or increased. Viral protein core (p24) counts decreased - indicating mass virus destruction. Four M.D.'s state ozone therapy is non toxic, and should be adopted. Due to political pressure, the tests were aborted.
Comment: "Political pressure" means that after the fact, the FDA forced Dr. Perez to sign a bogus statement that ozone is "worthless," or he was through as a doctor, and the hospital would never get any more millions in funding. Heavily censored copies of this are available through the Freedom of Information Act.
1989 Nov Cuban M.D.'s successfully treating sickle cell anemia, ankle ulcers, farm accidents, and ocular (RP, retinitis pigmentosa) disease. James Caplan, CAPMED/USA and Dr. Manuel Gomez, National Institute for Scientific Research, Havana, Cuba have patent pending for treating sickle cell anemia disease crises and ulcers with oxygen/ozone. They began large scale human trials leading to Cuban Ministry of Health approval for general use of ozone for sickle cell anemia, ulcers, and topical wounds. Ozone had been approved for the treatment of retinitis pigmentosa before the sickle cell anemia started.

1990 Jan 24 The Canadian National Defence Headquarters wrote to Health and Welfare Canada Bureau of Biologics, "Ozone Therapy in AIDS / project #231, Summary of Findings." Significant positive response in CD4 counts. No detrimental effects on absolute CD4 counts. "Contrasted with the control samples which quickly became (highly) positive for HIV-1...These data clearly demonstrate that no HIV-1 activity was detectable in any of the ozone-treated samples.It would appear that this form of therapy constitutes a potent means of inactivating HIV-1 in contaminated blood supplies, and may also provide a means for patient specific "autovaccination" in selected cases." They strongly asked for more funding to continue the research.

Induction of Interferon On Human Leucocytes." sponsored by grants from the Italian Ministry of Education. "...ozonation of blood is a medical procedure followed in several countries for treatment of viral diseases... we feel that the exploration of the effects of ozone on PBMC (peripheral blood mononuclear cells) has opened a new field of investigation that may yield useful results both in biological and practical terms. Ozone or its reactive oxygen species may act mainly via the stimulation of PBMC and release of lymphokines. The hypothesis can be made that ozone could lead to the release of tumor necrosis factor (TNF), interleukins (Ils) and IFN (interferon, a powerful antiviral protein with immunomodulatory activities could produce some benefits in patients with viral diseases)."

1991 Susan M. Lark, M.D. Los Altos, CA sends Ed McCabe a draft copy of her article entitled "Ozone and Its Uses In Medical Therapy". She reviewed the reseach studies on ozone therapy and concluded "the studies find bennefit in the clinical use of ozone for a varitey of conditions with a minumum of side effects." She told Ed "After a decade of product development/research with oxidative modalities, I have found ozone/oxygen therapy to be one of the most powerful and effective therapeutic modalities I have ever worked with."
1991 March, Proceedings of the 10th World Ozone Conference in Monaco " The efficacy of O2/O3 Low Pressure Application In Badly Healing Wounds" Horst Werkmeister - Former head of the Radiography Department, Lutheran Hospital, Oberhausen Germany. "There is little inconvenience to the patient, ozone is not capable of engendering further damage, and produces a significant stimulation of wound healing in a large number of cases due to its disinfectant and pronouncedly hyperemizing effect. If applied early enough, it is often able to prevent the development of large lesions. The unprejudiced presentation of wound developments following the application of ozone/oxygen gas treatment on the basis of measurement values given above has the aim of encouraging a wider and more frequent application of this method as it has shown its efficacy in many severely affected patients."

Renate Viebahn-Hansler "Due to its very specific reaction, medical ozone, as a pharmaceutical agent, has an accurately defined range of efficacy... According to the dosage and concentration range, we make use of the different properties of ozone, i.e.: its germicidal action (by oxidative destruction), its inability to inactivate microorganisms, and its restitutional effect (at a low concentration range). This involves three major indications: external ulcers and severe skin lesions, diseases of viral and bacterial origin, and arterial circulatory disturbances. The restitutional effect of ozone can be understood via its oxidative influence on the oxygen metabolism, the induction of specific enzymes and the activation of immunocompetent cells.
1991 Oct 1 Peer reviewed "JOURNAL OF THE AMERICAN SOCIETY OF HEMATOLOGY" In a major breakthrough for U.S. medical thinking, three years after the study concluded, the ozone\HIV work of M.D.'s Wells, Latino, Galvachin, and Poiesz is published in a well respected U.S. peer reviewed medical journal. Their article:
"Inactivation Of HIV Type 1 by Ozone In Vitro" appears in "Blood Journal, Volume 78 Number 7, Oct 11, 1991, pg. 1882" describing the research coordinated by Dr. Bernard Poiesz from Syracuse State University of New York Research Hospital. They performed 15 replications of an ozone study that interfaced ozone with HIV infected factor 8 blood. The ozone completely removed the HIV virus from the blood 97 to 100% of the time, yet was non-toxic to normal healthy blood components. Ed McCabe announced this study back in 1988, in his "Oxygen Therapies" book.
1991 OCT Dr. Michael T. Carpendale M.D. Veteran's Administration Hospital, San Francisco, and Joel Freeberg M.D., UC Medical School San Francisco, Bay Medical Research Foundation, San Francisco, publish in The Journal of Antiviral Research 1991; Volume 16 Number 3 :281-292 the following medical paper:
"Ozone Inactivates HIV At Noncytotoxic Concentrations "HIV (p24) was reduced in all ozone treated cultures compared to controls."
Dr. Carpendale also privately published "Ozone Treated HIV+ patient Becomes PCR Negative", the stories of two ozone rectal insufflation using AIDS patients - one who became PCR-.
1991 Dr. Robert Mayer (using ozone over 50 years, since the forties) has late stage AIDS patients in his research center clinical study some who only have a count of 5 T cells. Normal is 600-1500+. Although they have a count of only 5 T cells, they are completely healthy. In a hope indicating development, local FDA office told Dr. Mayer to go ahead and use ozone, as long as he only makes it himself in his own office with his own self manufactured machine.
1991 A brave humanitarian U.S. M.D. (Dr. J.B., ret.) in a southern state comes forward with his secret clinical ozone/hyperbaric therapy results. All his testing was performed at a major hospital and within independent labs. Out of 248 HIV POSITIVE patients he reported bringing 113 to HIV NEGATIVE, each within 60 Days, using ozone autohemotherapy immediately followed by hyperbaric therapy.
1991 Publication: The use of ozone-treated blood in the therapy of HIV infection and immune disease - a pilot study of ozone safety and efficacy. "AIDS" 5:981-984. G. Garber, D Cameron, N Hawley-Foss, D Greenway and M. Shannon.
This is the study the detractors of ozone like to quote to falsely try and prove it doesn't work. In an early Canadian establishment attempt to see if there is any validity to ozone, and to see if it was safe, a poorly designed and executed protocol was used in a pilot study by well meaning but unexperienced practitioners. The trial was sponsored by the Ottawa General Hospital Infectious Disease Division, Canadian Health and Welfare, Canadian Federal Center For AIDS, Department Of National Defence, and The Meuller Medical Company of Canada.
Comment: Poorly designed because the study only gave 10cc's of ozone into a muscle (dismissed by Aubourg in 1938 as too painful and ineffective), not I.V., and not enough to do any good, and not for a long enough time period. How are you going to clean up the 100 plus pounds of water that humans are by putting 10cc's into a muscle only three times a week? The daily environmental toxic load intake on the body alone would quickly negate any benefit, let alone the stress of a disease like AIDS!
Poorly executed because during the second half of the too short study, the principals admitted the ozone machine had broken, and wasn't producing any ozone, yet they ignored this fact when they wrote up the second phase of the study!
So, they used a protocol that any serious practitioner would laugh at, and based their conclusions upon false data. They then compounded their errors by seriously overstepping their boundaries and wrongly making the unjustified broad pronouncement that "Ozone therapy does not enhance parameters of immune activation nor does it diminish measurable p24 antigen in HIV-infected individuals."
The tragedy of allowing such studies to be published, and such pronouncements to be made, is that this false conclusion is often repeated by the FDA to our elected representatives while they ignore the thousands of studies that show ozone does work. This intellectual dishonesty is used to politically justify barring further real research that would eliminate suffering and save lives.
1991 Nov 5th Lymphokine and Cytokine Research Vol 10, Number 5, 1991 publishes "Studies on the Biological Effects of Ozone: 2. Induction of Tumor Necrosis Factor on Human Leucocytes, Luana Paulesu, Enrico Luzzi, and Velio Bocci. "Because ozonation of blood is a procedure followed in several European countries for the treatment of viral diseases and tumors, the release of factors with antiviral and immunomodulatory activities by leukocytes may explain the mechanism of action of ozone and of autohemotherapy." The "ozone concentration is critical in terms of TNF production and of cell mitogenesis. Owing to the presence of erythrocytes, higher concentrations are required to be effective in blood than in PBMC."
1991 Dec Dr. Robert Mayer joins the doctors reporting patients sero-converted to HIV NEGATIVE through use of ozone autohemotherapy.
1991 Major northeast area university scientist in conjunction with BSME engineer/researcher J.W. (names withheld by request to prevent being closed down by big money interests) undertaking two year plus microbe group eradication study using ozone equipment. Reporting 100% kill in vitro in 20 studies completed. Ft. Lauderdale police sergeant associated with FL Wainwright case phones one of the researchers and warns them, "You will be part of a criminal conspiracy if you continue to study ozone's effectiveness."
1991 Medizone ozone company negotiating with Canadian Armed Forces to commence 2 1\2 million dollar ozone research study to commence in 1992, comprised of animal studies, blood sterilization studies, human trials, the works.
1992 Jan Captain Michael Shannon, Deputy Surgeon General for the Canadian Naval Forces has 350 scientists under him. He is commencing a 2 1/2 million dollar ozone medical research study that will including blood sterilization, animal trials, and more. The Canadian Government realized that if a major event occurs, their army's blood supply would be inadequate in its present condition. He states "With thousands of people going to Europe yearly at a considerable cost to get this treatment - there must be something to it."
1992 May 8th Associated Press: Dr. Wayne Jonas, Walter Reed Army Institute of Research. Testifies before the North Carolina legislative panel. "Requiring that current medical practices be based on solid scientific evidence is building our house on a rock. Requiring that such practices be 'prevailing' is building that house on sand. What is prevailing in medical practice shifts with the wind of opinion and the tide of profit."
1992 June Author Ed McCabe begins working closely with former U.S. Congressman Berkeley Bedell. They decide to have Ed invited to testify before the newly-created National Institute of Health's Office of Unconventional Medicine. He testifies that, "Due to the many interviews I have conducted, it is my opinion that the AIDS problem has been solved. If immunity from state, and federal, and agency, and medical board prosecution could be assured, these humanitarian doctors would gladly make available their knowledge for the public good. I stand ready to do the same. They don't even need your money, they'll fund it themselves. If we can get ozone doctors immunity from prosecution, within 90 days the only thing left to do would be to implement the existing solution."
Ed and Berkeley decided that they need an MD to be there as well, and chose Dr. John Pittman from North Carolina to represent the ozone using doctors undergoing political harassment. Dr. Pittman told his story of being closed down even though the therapy was working.
1992 June Ed McCabe and Dr. John Pittman meet with Dr Killian, Deputy Director of the NIH's N.I.A.I.D. (AIDS institute). He and his assistant were very enthusiastic about ozone once they saw the proof they were brought that ozone was successful in treating AIDS patients. Later, upon follow up, they were very closed mouthed, without enthusiasm, and acted like they never heard a word they were told.
1992 Bolton, A. "Report on Scientific Studies to Elucidate "Ozon-O-Med" Treatment of Peripheral Vascular Disease" Intermune Life Sciences, Etobicoke, Ontario, 1992
1992 July Ed McCabe went to Washington on July 22nd, 1992. The trip was made after setting up private meetings with 2 U.S. Congressmen to coincide with the meeting that former Iowa Congressman Berkly Bedell and Ed McCabe had set up on the same day with U.S. Senator Tom Harkin, the former Presidential Candidate.
Mr. Bedell and Mr. McCabe decided to invite 2 doctors that had each brought a patient from HIV+ to HIV-. They also invited Jim Caplan, the man responsible for convincing the Cubans to approve medical ozone therapy for general use, and Dr. John Pittman, an ozone using doctor, and one of his recently denied treatment AIDS patients. Dr. Pittman's office was closed down by the North Carolina state medical board in the middle of successful clinical ozone trials due to "ozone not being FDA approved." They visited the Congressmen, were warmly received at each meeting, and ended up in turn at Senator Harkin's office for our meeting with him, where they were joined at this point by Dr. Michael Carpendale and his boss from the San Francisco Veterans Administration Hospital.
Senator Harkin scheduled us for only a 1/2 hour meeting, but he was so intrigued by our proof that we discussed ozone successfully treating AIDS with him for one and one half hours. He immediately decided to set up a meeting between us and the NIH's (National Institute of Health) Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Director, Dr. Anthony Fauci. The AIDS "problem" comes under the jurisdiction of this institute, and Dr. Fauci has been referred to as the U.S. Government's "AIDS Czar." Senator Harkin is on the NIH appropriations committee, so he has their ear.
1992 Aug On August 20th we met in NIH's building 31 wing 7A room 24 with Dr. Fauci and his boss Deputy NIH Director Dr. Moskowitz. Also present were Dr. Hill, Dr. Killan, and other legislative and legal aides. Mike Hall and Marina Metallios were there to observe for Senator Harkin's Office. About 30 people attended.
We presented our two ozone treated patients who no longer were HIV+, and no longer had fevers, swollen lymph nodes, diarrhea, pain, night sweats, weight loss, or any other manifestation of the AIDS/ARC disease. We handed Dr. Fauci and the others copies of their medical documentation, and they listened to Doctor Carpendale and one other doctor and their former AIDS patients. Dr. Latino from Medizone spoke of the flawless ozone animal trials that had already been done by Medizone. Dr. Pittman and one of his patients made emotional pleas for the open medical use of ozone so he could finish his clinical ozone trials. I asked for the same, gave them a brief 50 year history of the effectiveness of medical ozone on hundreds of thousands of people in Europe, and cited ozone's perfect safety record in millions of dosages. We made a sound, experienced, documented, and reasonable case for the immediate investigation of ozone's effectiveness in treating AIDS successfully. I also asked if anything could be done to influence the FDA to halt its suppressions of ozone-using M.D.'s. We were told that the NIH had no power over the FDA.
Comment: Picture this. Here's our small but dedicated group gathered at a round table with the U.S. Government's official AIDS policy makers. Around the outside of the table are aides, secretaries, assistants, and division chiefs. There were no big corporations funding us, as is usually the everyday case at these meetings. Although the NIH people only had to walk down the hall to be there, we all had to take time out from work and pay our own considerable travel, hotel, and meal expenses. We came from all over the country simply to help our fellow countrymen dying from AIDS. We were sitting right there at the table with two now perfectly healthy former AIDS patients testing HIV negative - one PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction - a test for any of the seven nucleotides of the HIV virus itself) negative, and one Western Blot/Elisa (HIV antibody presence) negative. We were sitting there with the examples and their records showing complete eradication of all secondary diseases, their actual doctors, a politically harassed-doctor and his patient who can't get the treatment, and several thick notebooks of ozone medical references from the U.S. and Europe.
What answer did we get? "We see no reason to pursue this." Let me repeat that: "We see no reason to pursue this." And, "They are obviously so healthy that they must not have had the disease." And, "We won't look at this treatment unless you have the patients PCR tested twice before treatment proving the presence of the HIV virus, stored blood from when they were positive, two PCR tests during treatment, and two PCR tests after ozone treatment proving the absence of the virus." What a reply from an institution funded by our tax dollars to find a cure for AIDS while people suffer and tragically slowly waste away. Not exactly encouraging was it? The weight of evidence sitting right there was enough to immediately investigate ozone, without adding all the new requirements on. The NIH has billions of dollars, and they could have done something after all we went through, you would think they could have at least made some phone calls to other doctors and patients as a goodwill gesture, but to only say in effect, "Go home"? Even though they did give us a clearly defined goal to shoot for, I couldn't help feeling that the goal line was just moved way back.
Analysis: Here's the problem with the current NIH reasoning:
1. Although they said they were unknowledgeable about the FDA's history of seizing ozone machines, harassing ozone using doctors, and forcing doctors to falsely claim ozone as worthless, they did hear me tell them of all this and how hard it was to get any doctors to show up at all to testify and present evidence to them. How can anyone conduct open trials on this beneficial treatment if the FDA will close them down as soon as they open the doors?
2. Promoting the unproven "HIV causes AIDS" scenario, they want 6 PCR HIV tests, each costing around 350 dollars. Total of $2,100+ per patient. First of all, there are several PCR tests around, and none of this is covered by insurance, so which PCR test will they believe? And who's going to pay for it? The ozone doctors are financially strapped, and the AIDS patients have already spent their savings on hospitals, doctors and drugs like AZT, DDI, and etcetera. There were also no PCR tests commonly available back when the patients we brought in first tested HIV positive, so having PCR's on them was an impossible requirement! Also, many of the patents on ozone therapy are now in the public domain, so no pharmaceutical company will support research.
3. They told us, via their announcement that they will not consider ozone unless we met the new PCR requirements, that the HIV virus is the ONLY thing to look for. Nowhere has it ever been proven that the HIV virus is the only definitive cause of AIDS; it was simply announced one day in the media as a probable cause. Dr. Gallo's work "HIV causes AIDS" was proven fraudulent. According to the latest international AIDS conference held in Amsterdam (1992), people die from AIDS who never test positive for HIV! The virus is probably only a promoter or possibly a co-factor of the disease. So why judge ozone's effectiveness upon the presence or absence of a possibly non-essential virus? Why ignore the most significant facts proving complete eradication of all secondary diseases and symptoms? This is a far more compelling test of whether or not to immediately begin research into ozone, if those who suffer can have their suffering eliminated, whether or not they test "PCR negative."
Comment: What about the quality of their life since ozone all by itself? The way the Center For Disease Control has decided to officially classify if someone has AIDS or not tells the story. They look for the presence of several "hallmark" diseases all occurring at once. Both patients that we brought in had completely eliminated their secondary infections and any clinical symptoms. Therefore by definition, besides testing HIV negative, they no longer had AIDS according to CDC guidelines! The real live people with their medical records and blood tests were sitting right in front of the NIH employees - yet they could not see. Or they chose not to see. Let's hope more practical thinking will win out in the end.
Just so you understand medical ozone in the proper treatment of AIDS, a few shots of medical ozone are not going to be magic bullets. Successful ozone AIDS treatment has always been 2 to 5 hours a day of a number of oxidative and other therapies for three to six weeks in a row, depending upon the particular aggregate methods employed. These methods are always combined with lifestyle changes, proper diet, eliminative organ cleansing, a spiritual or moral balance to help eliminate denial of self, and the inclusion of an immune system rebuilding regimen.
6 U.S. doctors have reported to me over 200 people turning HIV negative. I also have video interview proof that this therapy is remarkably effective on cancer and even diseases like multiple sclerosis. As a society we should look in the direction of ozone soon, instead of watching more die needlessly as we continue chasing the old ways that obviously don't work.
1992 Sept "Research and Development Bulletin" No. 234 Science and Technology section of the Canadian Government's Supply and Services Dept publishes "Better Blood Sterilization With Ozone." "Under a $303,943 contract with the Surgeon General's Branch of Department of National Defence [DND] Headquarters, researchers from the National Reference Laboratory at the CRCS are investigating two ozone sterilization technologies to confirm their reported efficacy in deactivating a variety of potential viral contaminants in blood, including HIV-1 and hepatitis... In Europe an estimated 350,000 people were treated with ozone between 1980 and 1985. The University of Bonn reviewed these cases and reported virtually no side effects of ozone therapy when properly administered... 'The products of this research have worldwide applications,' says DND's Capt. Shannon. 'In the right concentration, ozone sounds almost too good to be true.

In the last three decades major ozone autohemotherapy has been used in Europe in uncontrolled trials carried out in patients with many illnesses, particularly chronic viral diseases and neoplasms. It appears that the treatment may activate the host's immune system by inducing the production of immunoactive cytokines, and it may now be possible to rationalize the procedure, improve the regimen and assess the outcome... Once this is done, owing to the large range of medical applications and the simplicity of the procedure, autohemotherapy could become very valuable particularly in undeveloped countries. - From Medline

This was a reprint of Mr. McCabe's testimony before the NIH Office of Unconventional Medicine. "I have interviewed six U.S. M.D.'s who, independent of each other, have collectively reported bringing over 300 AIDS patients to HIV negative status (confirmation with Western Blot, ELISA, and PCR), including complete eradication of any secondary disease factors such as energy loss, weight loss, diarrhea, etc."

1993 June 2, 1993 Headline: Medizone's Blood Decontamination Technology Proven Successful In Canadian Monkey Trial. Still trying to inch their way through the system, Medizone announces its successful trials on monkeys. This was one of the requirements imposed last August when McCabe/Bedell/Latino et. al. met with Dr. Fauci at the NIH. Dr. Fauci said "Why can't you do a simple monkey trial?" So Medizone did, and now they are announcing the successful completion of the first two phases of a Canadian research project overseen by scientists representing the Canadian Red Cross, Canadian Departments of Defense and Agriculture, Cornell University Veterinarian Medical College and Medizone Canada Ltd.
Two groups of monkeys were infused with plasma infected with highly virulent strains of Simian Immunodeficiency Virus (monkey equivalent of HIV). The first group died within 12 days. The second group's infected plasma was first infused with ozone through Medizone's process. None of the second group showed any sign of infection.
Dr. Latino, Medizone's president stated; "These preliminary research results indicate the capability of Medizone's patented scientific and technological process to inactivate blood and blood products of certain viral contaminants, including the AIDS virus."
Including the above monkey trial, Medizone has so far submitted to the FDA all the following data:
1. Long Island College of Pharmacy rabbit study showing no toxicity at concentrations up to 10 times the dose proposed in man.
2. Cornell University Veterinary College feline study showing no detectable toxic effects.
3. The Hematology Journal HIV inactivation study showing 100% inactivation.
4. Mount Sinai School of Medicine, New York revealing hemolysis and coagulation changes well within the standard for reinfusion of packed human blood.
The FDA still won't allow human testing or admit there is any scientific proof of ozone's efficacy.
1993 Aug-Sept International Ozone Association holds Eleventh Ozone World Congress and Exhibition August 29 to September 3rd, 1993 in San Francisco. Tours were given of 9 San Francisco water treatment plants using ozone, booths of industrial ozone manufacturers were perused, plus the two day medical ozone meeting was well attended by participating doctors from all over the world.
Comment: O3OHATOP - That's ozone in Russian. The meeting plainly demonstrated to us that even the Russians have more health freedom than we do.
Dr. Claudia Koscherkova, head of research and development at the Nisnerokinov Medical Institute is presently treating 39 arthereosclerosis patients with ozone. He and C.N. Kontorschikova M.D., Head of Central Research, and especially Sergi P. Peretyagin M.D., Manager of the research center (he's the father of modern Russian ozone usage), and others are using medical ozone on babies, animals, adults, and even gunshot wounds! They have four major medical ozone treatment centers in their largest cities; Nezhni Novgorod, Ivanovo, Kirov, and Smolenskj, plus others in the Baltic Republics.
They are also using ozone inhalation therapy - a 1-4 mcg/ml concentration of ozone is humidified by ultrasound and inhaled, and pioneering a recirculatory extracorporeal ozonation of human blood for up to 1 1/2 hours at a low concentration of 1 1/2 to 2 micrograms per milliliter technique.
Over 120 Russian M.D.'s have, over the past six years, treated thousands of people with ozone! Because of the rampant greed of our drug companies who influence all levels of our society to suppress ozone, ALL THE OTHER COUNTRIES ARE REALLY SHOWING U.S. UP!
The Russian MD's I met at IOA were kind enough to lend me a copy of their video. I secured a good copy of it -a 20 minute explanatory medical ozone video (in English). They have many innovative techniques, and you can now order your own copy of it through "The Family News."
Also at the IOA conference, the IOA held tours of local ozone water treatment plants, and had three days of presenting papers on ozone municipal drinking water treatment plants, the newest industrial ozone generation methods, waste water treatment plants, ozone used in the pulp and paper and cooling/process industries, in swimming pools and municipal aquariums, groundwater treatment, and its biological effects.
The conference wound up with two days of medical presentations on completed and ongoing ozone medical studies - done mostly outside of the United States due to U.S. political pressures. Here's a synopsis and list of the topics covered showing doctors' successes with medical ozone therapy.
Dr. John Greenburg, On the University of Heidelberg School of Medicine staff, and working w/Horst Kief presented the results of his work on the microscopical examination of whole blood (5cc's blood, 15cc's ozone) after exposure to ozone, establishing that it is safe if used within the accepted parameters, generally less than 80 mcg/ml concentration.
Dr. Michael Carpendale, San Francisco, CA VA Hospital was honored for his research work and for helping to put on this year's meeting. His talk, "Ozone, HIV and AIDS" "Ozone inactivates HIV at concentrations non toxic to blood cells. In saline .4 ug/ml. In serum 4.0 ug/ml. In blood 50 ug/ml. Ozone is an incredibly safe drug, ...increases oxygen between cells increases vaso dilation and perfusion ...increases cellular membrane permeability ... T4 cell best marker to use." And, "VA hospital in Florida treated a referred patient with rectal ozone, his mother states it cured his cryptosporidium diarrhea."
Doctor Frank Shallenberger reported using IV ozone therapy via infusion pumps set at 100cc's per hour going into a pickline. He suggests freshly refilled multiple 10cc syringes instead of one large syringe so the ozone doesn't degrade in the syringe over time. He noted that the body's antioxidant reaction sets in within 5 to 6 days.
Doctor Wong, University of Havana head of ozone therapy in their medical research center. Using ozone on arthritis, cardiopathy, endophlebitis, etc.
Dr. Bernie Kershbaum, Philadelphia, PA was elected head of the IOA Pan American Medical Group, a for MD's only organization. The next IOA meeting would be May 12th, 1995 in France. They are calling for new papers.
The Vice President of the German Society for Ozone, Dr. Hartmut Baltin reported he's treating AIDS patients in a study in his vascular clinic.
The Italians are using a veterinary technique of infusing 2 liters of horse blood with 15 mcg/ml ozone and reinfusing it into the horse.

Quoting Seigfried Rilling, the President Of the German Medical Society for Ozone in his talk on the Germany History of European Ozone, "...Ozone only serves Humanity"
Comment: And the FDA official told a congressman there is no proof of medical applications. Why aren't the U.S. doctors a majority of this list - instead of being forced to hide their work in basements and back rooms?
1993 Sept 2, World premier of Canadian 1/2 hour video "Ozone and The Politics of Medicine" by Geoff Rogers and Riener Diedrau at the IOA meeting. Video subsequently shown in LA, New York, Salt Lake and other health shows.
Comment: Video demonstrates through their own words, the arrogant ignorance of the establishment, and the valiant efforts of the ozone researchers and pioneers.
1993 Sept 8th, Medizone Int'l NYC announces co-project with Italian Ministry of Health and the Italian Scientific Society for Oxygen-Ozone Therapy to treat AIDS and Hepatitis-B patients with Medizone's thin film delivery technology. Patients will undergo a one hour treatment on alternate days, during a twelve week trial.
1993 Sept 25 Dr. Gerard V. Sunnen, M.D. writes his "Addendum To 'Ozone In Medicine'; Possible Mechanisms Of Viral Inactivation By Ozone" He details the chemical pathways by which ozone has its effectiveness. 1994 Jan 20th Medical Tribune - Research News - Headline: "Oxygen plus ozone mixture can inactivate HIV in vitro" article by Nathan Horowitz describes upcoming Medizone Phase 1 clinical trials at several research sites in Italy. 300 patients with HIV infection or hepatitis-B will be randomized to treated or control groups and studied during three months of dosing and nine months of follow up. For 12 weeks 300 cc's of blood will be withdrawn and ozonated and returned to the patient every other day. "Dr Latino's preliminary data are very interesting," said Mark Cohen, Ph.D., a professor of medicine at Louisiana State University School of Medicine in Shreveport. "His studies show that ozone really is capable of killing HIV."
1994 March 25, Dallas, Texas is the site of the IBOM International Bio-Oxidative Medicine Foundation's 5th annual meeting. Phone 405/691-1452.

WARNING! 1994 April WARNING! Researcher interviews EPA (Phone 800/241-1754, 800/444-7255, 800/447-6349) official in charge of efficacy data and microbial studies, Zigfridas Vaituzis, who shockingly reveals that as of this date all government "AIDS" statistics are still only for HIV-1! Same goes for all blood bank testing! HIV-2, HIV-3 and other forms, possibly up to 10 in number (HIV-O in France) are not tested for or compiled in the statistics quoted by the government and announced over and over in the media! We are therefore told of far fewer persons having AIDS than the actual statistics reveal actually have AIDS, and the blood banks have routinely been giving out blood infected with the other forms of HIV!
When you go get a HIV test, they only look for HIV-1! Forget what the nurses at the blood banks believe and tell you. Ask them to go and physically get one of the actual HIV blood screening test kits and read to you the instructions printed on them, they are only for HIV-1. The doctor or patient must request screening beyond HIV-1!
As of June 1, 1994 they will recognize HIV-2. Some blood banks are already testing for HIV-2.
Comment: Through political deception we are told all is well, while the stored transfusion blood remains untested and therefore unsafe, and the statistics are grossly understated! What is the real political agenda? It sounds anti-life, anti- people, doesn't it? If you were in a car accident and woke up with a blood bag going into you, don't you have a right to know that it is not HIV-2, HIV-3, etc, infected? Ozone bubbled through all stored blood would solve this problem immediately. Makes you wonder if some alien power has seized control of the inner workings of our government. They certainly don't represent me or any of my friends, or you or yours either, do they?
1994 April Before the above conversations with the CDC, their AIDS reference computerized National AIDS Information and Education Program - CDC National AIDS Clearinghouse databank had a synopsis of the story where Ed McCabe had testified before the NIH in 1992 about the effectiveness of ozone therapy. The story had subsequently been printed in the "Washington Post" Health section, 06/23/94, page 8. by David Brown. One week after the above conversations, all references of Mr. McCabe's testimony and the resulting Washington Post newspaper story had completely disappeared from the CDC computer. Around 4/7/94. The database is privately owned by Information Inc., Behesda, MD
Comment: The control of information is the consolidation of power. The high priests want to stay in power, and don't care if it kills you.
Mr. McCabe's oxygen therapies series of books, tapes and videos, and A FREE COPY OF A NEWSLETTER are available at 1-800-284-6261, or International call U.S. 305-759-8710, or write: The Family News 9845 N.E. 2nd Ave. Miami Shores, FL 33138 U.S.A. A much more detailed bound and printed version of this reference listing, with embedded comments by Ed McCabe is available from The Family News as a publication.
Thanks, and Happy Oxygen!
