          August 1990

media representative, and expert author of the bestselling book 
"Oxygen Therapies." Copyright 1990 by Ed McCabe. 
 
Q. Mr. Oxygen, what are typical nitrous oxide levels emitted from
the average ozone air purifier?  

A. Air ozonators are not medical devices. Therefore they don't 
use bottled medical grade oxygen as the influent gas, they use 
room air.  Room air is about 80% nitrogen, and when the only 20% 
(or less !) oxygen content of room air is turned into ozone by 
the ozone generator, usually the heat of the reaction makes some 
of the nitrogen combine with some of the oxygen to form trace 
amounts of nitrous oxides (NO).  If the nitrous oxides hit 
moisture (in the air, in your lungs) it might turn into trace 
amounts of nitric acid.  This is why the medical profession only 
uses bottled pure oxygen.  This acid effect from improper usages 
in too high concentrations contributes to allowing detractors to 
claim ozone is harmful.  Natural ozone, at natural levels, 
produced by emulating nature has never been toxic to lung tissue. 

Current available literature shows nitric oxides sampled from the
output of the worst offenders ("hot spark" type generators) to be
about 3.3%, and the rest ozone. Source: Analytical Testing Lab, 
Los Angeles, CA.  Almost every home ozonator sold today uses 
considerably less "dirty" generation methods than this worst case
scenario.  

Q. At what level should I set my ozone air purifier?  

A. In decades of practical applications, many thousands of users 
have used ozone air purifiers properly.  They set the output 
level of their machines just below the point where they can smell
the ozone, and under these conditions, no one has experienced any
problems.  Some set it higher.  

Q. What connection does air ozone have with detoxification? 

A. Toxic people, and if you live on this toxic soup planet I am 
including you in this, have been reported to start detoxifying in
the presence of ozone.  If the level entering the body through 
the lungs is too high, the dead bacteria, viruses, and oxidized 
toxic poisons leaving the body will plug up the channels of 
elimination making the chest feel tight, or perhaps making the 
nasal passages and mucous membranes swell up slightly.  

Q. Can breathing ozone hurt me?  

A. We all agree that water is good, but get enough & we speak of 
drowning.  Same for ozone.  You are breathing it right now.  It 
is part of nature.  Extreme levels of ozone make you feel you are
suffocating, because the lungs swell to protect the internal 
organs by not transferring the gasses inside.  Conscious people 
turn the machine down or off long before that level is reached. 
Normal people who accidentally breathe extreme levels of ozone 
recover in a short time without permanent damage in all but the 
most severe cases.  The "window of effectiveness" is all 
important and must be respected.  

Q. Which air ozonator should I buy?  

A. Any one of them is acceptable to me.  If you see nitrous 
compounds as something to be avoided, one manufacturer states 
that their line of electronically specialized ozone air purifiers
produces no nitric compounds.  All the other manufacturers have 
been selling products for years without anyone ever complaining 
about harmful effects - as long as their products were used 
correctly.  Remember, the real problems occur when anything other
than a pure oxygen/ozone mixture is used for medical injection, 
infusion, or insufflation. 

That, and deliberate disinformation articles knocking our friend 
ozone is the only real reason why you hear warnings about nitric 
compounds.  I spoke of it in my book so people would "get" that 
ozone could falsely be made to look bad by quoting some study 
showing animals damaged by extremely high concentrations of ozone
produced from "dirty" generators using nitrous containing air.  

Q. What is pulmonary edema?  Can it occur in the colons of people
who frequently use ozone rectal insufflation?  

A. In the previous discussion we looked at two considerations:
The swelling of mucous membranes during a situation where someone
is forced to detoxify too rapidly, and exposure to extreme levels
of ozone for prolonged periods causing swelling within the air 
passages.  This swelling is called pulmonary (lung) edema 
(swelling).  Pulmonary edema only occurs in the lungs, but edema 
or swelling in a colon undergoing humidified pure ozone/oxygen 
gas insufflation doesn't seem to be a problem for the following 
reasons.  

1.) Colon cells are a totally different type of cell than lung 
cells.  They are tougher, and made to transfer a wider range of 
compounds - liquids and solids - than refined lung tissue which 
strictly handles gas exchanges.  

2.) Pure water and oxygen/ozone mixtures are the only components 
that doctors ever use in rectal insufflation, so it is not 
possible that nitric compounds or nitric acids could be formed, 
since there is no strong heat source in the colon.  

3.) Rectal insufflation is over in 4 minutes.  It is usually 30 
seconds to one minute in application with 3 minutes "holding it 
in" time, and by then all the gas has gone into the bloodstream. 

No one ever advocates breathing ozone for medical purposes, in 
unnaturally high concentrations.  Historical literature, such as 
a turn of the century book on the use of the Violet Ray 
Generator, shows us that around 1920, ozone was commonly "washed"
(bubbled) through mixtures of aromatic oils, like pinus and 
eucalyptus for example, and then inhaled deeply for medicinal 
purposes.  It was used on such afflictions as colds and sinusitis
or for general detoxification.  By combining ozone with natural 
essential oils, the lung irritating effect was removed.  

Q. For general everyday use what is the optimum concentration or 
window of effectiveness for medicinal ozone/oxygen gas mixtures? 

A. Ozone is one of the most powerful sterilizers, bactericides 
and virucides we know of.  Not enough ozone and nothing happens. 
Just the right amount is shown by plenty of studies to destroy 
bacteria, viruses, toxins, and old, dead, weak, feeble, diseased,
and dying cells that can't protect themselves the same way 
healthy cells can.  Too much ozone, and you start oxidizing 
healthy cells.  The "window of effectiveness" is all important.  
Externally (skin ulcers, burns, wounds, etc.) ozone is commonly 
used in higher concentrations than internally.  External 
applications range from 40 to 100 micrograms per milliliter.  
Internally, as in IV infusions or rectal insufflation, according 
to Dr. Carpendale at the VA Hospital in San Francisco, and the 
famous German ozone doctors Rilling and Viebahn, the average 
"window" appears to be approximately 25 to 35 micrograms of pure 
ozone per milliliter of total gas.  

The rest is pure oxygen. This translates to approximately 2 or 3%
ozone and 98 or 97% pure oxygen.  In application, most users set 
their machines to produce 27 ug/ml.  Many researchers state that 
27 ug/ml produces the maximum viral kill and the lowest amount of
irritation to healthy cells.  See "Oxygen Therapies - A New Way 
Of Approaching Disease" for further discussions and references.

At the urging of many in our oxygen family, The Not For Profit 
"Foundation For The Advancement of Oxygen Therapies" has finally 
been formed.  Our stated purpose: We are bringing our case to the 
public by educating them that oxygen supplements, therapies and 
related activities are historically inexpensive, safe, and proven 
effective when used as directed by competently trained healthcare 
professionals.  We are using education, the media, and soon, with 
your help, aggressive research as proof to silence whomever 
postures against oxygen, your very right to life itself.

While America dies of AIDS, Tuberculosis and a host of other 
diseases, and the FDA stands before Congress and declares as 
truth that "there is no evidence that ozone has any medical 
benefit," and Congressmen say we should "imprison anyone who 
promotes or uses ozone for 25 years as a felon," and doctors  
curing diseases are railroaded into prison, and homes are broken 
into by government agents seizing ozone machines, things have 
gone way too far.  They are referring to us. You and me and our 
friends.  Won't you please become a contributing member by 
joining the foundation today?  Donations will be in a segregated 
account and only used for our stated agenda.  Please send your 
donation, no matter how small or large - all will be appreciated
