OZONE - At The Roundtable Discussion

Question 1:
Is Ozone a poisonous gas, a toxic substance and harmful?

Answered by:

Clark Thorp, Ph.D., M.D.
Recent authoritative investigations have established, that pure
Ozone is Non-Toxic even in concentrations as great as 20 or 50
parts per mill. of air.

A. Hill, M.D.
Pure Ozone is not poisonous in any sense of the word as is breaks
down in contact with the mucous membrane, and only Oxygen remains.

Th. Kunzemann, M.D.
Casual toxic sign are only theoretically thinkable THROUGH OTHER
unclean gaseous BY-PRODUCTS.

Clark Thorp, M.D.
Ozone containing oxide of nitrogen, can be toxic in concentrations
as low as 1.5 p.p.m.

T. Sollman, M.D.
The older methods of preparing Ozone developed irritant nitrogen
oxides, but the modern generators are free from this defect.

F. B. Carpenter, M.D.
That Ozone is absolutely harmless we have demonstrated over a
period of many years in patients of all ages.

Question 2:
Wonder why Ozone has not been used more in America, whereas it has
been used extensively in Europe and South America?

Answered by:

E. W. Riesbeck, M.E.
"One of the reasons why the successes obtained with Ozone in
Europe have not received wider publication in America is perhaps
due to the fact that lectures, test data, etc. are given in German
or French."

Th. Kunzemann, M.D.
"Moreover, the use of Ozone for therapy has been made difficult
through inadequate apparatus, but the new Ozone technique has
overcome this difficulty."

Donatient L. Abbe. M.D.
"If less favorable results have been obtained by some
experimenters, their lack of success arises NOT from any failing
on the part of OZONE. but from the use of FAULTY APPARATUS or from

John F. Kessel, M.D.
The extensive use of Ozone in this country has been retarded

a) of the high cost of power, and
b) the low efficiency of the older type of Ozone generators

Now, the cost of electrical power has greatly decreased and the
efficiency of Ozone equipment greatly improved.  The picture of
production shifts strongly in favor of Ozone.

Question 3:
Is Ozone really effective in killing bacteria in air and water?

Answered by:

A. Vosmaer, Ph.D.
"Ozone owes its fame to its remarkable power of killing bacteria 
That is why the world should LOOK UPON OZONE AS A BOON TO MANKIND
No matter how many bacteria there may be, Ozone will take care of
them and destroy any amount and any kind "

A. Vosmaer, Ph.D.
"Experiments with cholera and typhus bacteria are rather awkward
to be carried out in a private plant, handling, say a million
gallons of water per day, and the firm Siemens and Halske were
very fortunate to find the Prussian State officials willing and
ready to test the matter.  Dr. Ohlmueller and Dr. Prall published
results of their finding regarding the action of Ozone on
bacteria.  The experimental series covered the effect of Ozone on
pure water infected with 16,000 cholera or with 30,000 to 40,000
typhus, or 20,000 to 40,000 coli bacteria.  THE RESULT WAS
ABSOLUTE STERILITY AFTER TREATMENT. The next step was to see the
result on infected ordinary river water carrying over 4,000
bacteria.  After treatment with Ozone, some 5 or 6 were left over
and those were harmless.

E. Howlett, M.E.
"Ozone in the air in minute quantity of only 1 part per million
retards the growth of bacteria and molds."

E. K. Rideal, Ph.D.
"Ozone is a powerful germicidal. Its high germicidal activity is
doubtless due to its oxidizing power."

W. E. Anghinbaugh, M.D.
"Ozone generators have been installed in many homes, and that
super-oxygen is particularly destructive to all microbes and at
the same time it makes inert the dangerous dust with its bacteria
laden tenants.

Question 4:
Can Ozone be classified as a "natural" deodorant?

Answered by:

M. J. Rosenow, M.D.
"Ozone destroys organic odors.  It is a deodorizer of powerful
stenches; i.e. garbage incineration and fat rendering."

Prof. Szyaplenske, Ph.D.
"Ozone can destroy certain odors through oxidation as we can prove
beyond doubt for hydrogen sulphide indole, skatol and decayed

A. Vosmaer, Ph.D.
"Ozone will take care of bad odors in a very effective way, by
oxidizing them to odorless carbon dioxide and other compounds."

Dr. J. C. Olson
"When Ozone comes in contact with dead organic matter, oxidation
immediately takes place with destruction of the organic matter. 
In this, it is powerful in removing odors.

George A. Johnston, M.D.
"Unpleasan odors are not masked or covered up by Ozone, but
literally destroyed.  The results in an ordinary living room are
almost immediate.  Where clean fresh air is desirable, Ozone
generators have a definite contribution to make to the medical
world "                                   .

Question 5:
Can Ozone be classified as a therapeutic?

Answered by:

A. Caille, M.D.
"Ozone is exceedingly valuable from a therapeutic standpoint.  It
gives better and prompter relief than any other medication."

Noble M. Eberhard, M.D.
"If I could have only one remedy, I would prefer to take my
chances with Ozone."

Th. Kunzemann, M.D.
"The capability of the strong reaction of Ozone has for a long
time found the interest of Doctors and Hygienists.

Therapeutic employment of Ozone is based on two modes of action. 
One is the action of the pure oxidation itself, the other, the
action of the oxygen created by the oxidation, which in its status
nascendi shows peculiar qualities.

To group one, belong the employment of OZONE BY INFECTIOUS
DISEASES, especially by tubercular diseases. The fact that Ozone
infiltrates through the pores of the skin can be proved in a
double way through chemical physio treatments.  Tests have been
made in taking 1 cc. blood from the patient before giving him a 20
minute physical treatment with Ozone.  Another 1 cc. of blood was
taken afterwards. The result of the investigation showed by each
of the persons tested an increase of oxygen in their veins. In
concluding, we can say that Ozone, in contact with the skin, is
breaking down into molecular oxygen, and through perspiration
enters into the inner tissue. The tissues are oversaturated and
the Ozone diffuses into the veins.  After the treatment, the
increase in the different cases were 15, 17, 20, and 25% more
oxygen in comparison with the original contents. This increase in
oxygen in the tissues and veins leads forcibly to the complete
oxidation of all organic acids, and by the expulsion of the
carbonic acid, according to the law of the action of quantities to
the complete deacidification, and therefore, to a spontaneous
reduction of breathing frequency.  These physiological
verifications established Dr. Sehdens practical verified
therapeutic results with many forms of diseases.

S. Barker, M.P.S.
"Ozone has a direct influence on the blood itself.  It has been
proved that patients treated both by injection and orally, rapidly
increase their number of red corpuscles, some blood tests showing
an increase of 50% in a months treatment."

E. W. Riesbeck, M.E.
"I have before me 32 complete records and reports of reputable
physicians who treated various diseases with olive or cod liver
oil heavily charged with OZONE.  By this method the oxygen content
of olive and cod liver oil used for treatment was increased 8.53
per cent.  In some cases the cod liver oil used for treatment was
charged with Ozone until its gravity of 0.925 was increased to
1,000.  Among the cases treated with this oil were tuberculosis,
anemia, lung trouble, Bright's disease, abscesses, pneumonia and
influenza, and as far as the records show, these cases were
discharged as cured."

In "Ozone Facts"

O. M. Justice, M.D.
"Like many other treatments, THE REASON FOR SO MANY WONDERFUL
ACHIEVEMENTS DERIVED FROM this simple aid, Ozone, is that it
consists of nothing more nor less than ACTIVATED OXYGEN.

"We all know that Oxygen is positively necessary to the existence
of not only animal life, but of plant life as well.


"I am very much impressed with the use of Ozone.  We definitely
are on the threshold of another medicament which seems to be a
specific in many diseases."

In "Ozone Therapy"

Question 6:
What outstanding physiological effect of Ozone are known?

Answered by:

E. Howlett, Eng.
"Complete water sterilization can be affected in a few minutes "

"Ozone in the air in minute quantity of only one part per million
retards the growth of mold and bacteria."

D. F. Kessel, M.D.
One part Ozone in 2 million p solution renders the virus
polyomelitis inactive within 2 minutes compared with the double
amount of chlorine using 3 hours.

E. S. Hallett. M.E.
"In five years that Ozone has been used in the public schools of
St. Louis, Tuberculosis cases have been reduced 50%.  Also the
other diseases have been materially reduced.

"Ozone would save thousands of lives every year if homes and
schools were equipped with apparatus for the circulation of


Ozone, God's Gift to Humanity, surely has become an outstanding
blessing to mankind.  Its benefits are so great, so many fold and
seemingly unlimited.  Ozone is not a drug, but a wonderful and
exceptional aid to nature, and with it the great unsurpassed
artist and healer-Dr Nature-is blessing humanity.
