OXYGEN WITH ED MCCABE 7/26/91 "Mr. Oxygen" is Ed McCabe, internationally acclaimed speaker,investigative journalist, expert, and author of the bestselling book "Oxygen Therapies." Nothing herein is medical advice, but merely a public discussion of the oxygen therapy centered events, products, and methods being used worldwide. Copyright 1991 by Ed McCabe. Dear readers, please be advised that I am undertaking an informal, organic, street/clinical SPECIFIC survey of people with AIDS who use or have used ozone in some form to treat the disease. If you are, or know of such a person, please write describing your experiences. Everyone who has had ANY OTHER disease, and used some form of oxygen therapies to treat it, is invited to please write and tell us. Thank you, as our efforts at documentation will be very useful to those who need convincing. Q. Is medical ozone therapy legal? A. It is everyplace else, but it is still untested in the U.S. courts. Mind you, the people I have interviewed who have been told that the disease they have will soon kill them don't care very much about any official pronouncements. If they are sure a therapy will work, they find a way and use it anyway. It is a shame that in this day and age the U.S. health community lags so far behind their international colleagues. The following is my opinion, and not meant as legal advice. Medical ozone is legally used in clinics worldwide on a daily basis. In Germany 644 therapists were surveyed, and The University of Innsbruck's Forensic Institute published Dr. Jacob's dissertation quoting this in The Empirical Medical Acts of Germany. They reported 384,775 patients had received 5,579,238 ozone treatments. The side effect rate was only .0007%, incredibly far, far, lower than U.S. drug therapy wherein each year approximately 140,000 people die from prescription drugs. That's two and a half times more Americans than were killed in Vietnam! In the U.S., the use of ozone as medicine predates the FDA itself, and therefore ozone can enjoy "grandfathered" legal status, exempt from government interference. I know doctors here who to this day have used it for over 40 years on a daily basis. Everyday natural substances like water, air, and nature's ozone are beyond the reach of governmental regulation which only deals with drugs, or machines that claim to cure something. However, since bureaucracies will always tend to try and extend their jurisdiction over everything in our private lives, you're in for a fight if you try to assert these rights you have. Unfortunately, regulatory agencies and other U.S. health professionals have been repeatedly lied to with the "ozone is worthless" gambit by agents of those who fund political campaigns and bogus studies to keep ozone out - because it will negatively impact their drug sales. Well meaning FDA agents consequently erroneously think they are doing a good thing for sick people when they attack medical ozone. Politics mixed with medicine means expense and suffering. For example, the FDA printed in the Federal Register that ozone is a "toxic gas with no known medical uses." Printing this statement is either a blatant attempt at suppression of truth from the highest levels, or one of the poorest research jobs ever done. I suppose if I closed my eyes and ears to over 50 years of safe and effective medical use on hundreds of thousands of humans with thousands of medical references and clinical studies in Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Mexico, and the U.S., I would be able to claim ignorance about it too. What all this means, is that in the U.S., ozone is ultimately legal, but practically speaking, you will be told it isn't, until someone with enough brains, nerve, and lots of money fights for it in the federal and state courts and wins. Ozone is in the middle of a political struggle for its very life. It needs your help. Honest doctors and patients of conscience will either continue sneaking around using ozone quietly, suffering the indignity of having uneducated people falsely calling their methods "worthless, unorthodox, and unproven," or having their machines occasionally confiscated, or hopefully they will muster the collective will and the monetary resources to fight for ozone openly in court and in the press, using all the historical and clinical documentation that can be dug up, because it surely does exist. Q. Should I drink Hydrogen Peroxide? A. Far be it from me to ever tell anyone to do anything. We all have to make our own life choices after careful consideration of the facts. I do not want to violate your right of self determination. Hydrogen peroxide is so natural that it is produced by every cell in your body (except for the lining of your blood vessels), and then your body has four enzymes in it specifically there to digest the peroxide it just made, liberating the singlet oxygens where they are needed to kill disease. It is the first line of defense in your immune system, being manufactured by the lymphocytes to kill germs and viruses. But we can't make it without getting enough oxygen from our air, water, and food, and the earth is running out of unbound oxygen due to pollution and greedy slashing of the rainforests. Over the past one hundred years many thousands of people have at one time or another tried drinking different forms of much purer and EXTREMELY DILUTE peroxide to cure what ails them. It is listed in the 1888 AMA journal as getting rid of "cancer of the womb, scarlet fever, and diphtheria." It was written up in The Lancet, the British medical journal, by British doctors (Oliver, et al.) as eliminating rampant influenzal death in Indian Ghurkas. I have read a multitude of reports on it written over the past 100 years, and heard verbal testimony from thousands of users over the past 5 years. Hundreds of doctors in the US and Mexico have used it clinically on many thousands of patients over the past seven years. It either worked great on hundreds of ailments, or at the very least didn't hurt anything - AS LONG AS THE EXACTING PROTOCOLS WERE FOLLOWED. The vast majority reported it really helped them. When health professionals speak of hydrogen peroxide, or oxygen water, they are NOT speaking of the grocery/drugstore 3%! The common 3% has poisons like heavy metals, phenols, and quinones in it to preserve it, and it is approved for external use only. Commercially, the pure forms are getting harder and harder to buy, due to scarcity at the wholesaler levels, as manufacturers pull back on availability for mostly political reasons. I have found that for my own personal use, the easiest, best tasting, and most convenient way I can imbibe it is in the form of products like Oxy Toddy or Dr. Donsbach's SuperOxy Plus flavored mixtures. Q. Can the tissue PO2 level be raised through bathing in water with hydrogen peroxide or ozone in it? A. PO2 is the partial pressure of oxygen, a method of measuring of how much oxygen is in the body. The skin absorbs anything you put on it, or put it in, and every one of your cells is not only made to absorb oxygen, but must have it. Think of the square feet of available surface contact area on your whole body, and how that directly links to your bloodstream which carries oxygen to all the inner organs and cells. I recently talked to some researchers, one was an MD, who were curious about this very question, so they did some experimenting. They borrowed an oximeter (measures PO2) from the local hospital. Several volunteers got into an enclosure with ozonated water circulating all around their skin surfaces. The Oximeter showed a rise in the whole body tissue oxygen saturation of 300 to 400% in about one half hour, and the PO2 stayed up there for a few days! Water is important for carrying oxygen into and through the body. The volunteers felt wonderful. There is a new inexpensive device that just emerged in the marketplace, the "Cleanbath" bath and spa water ozonator and purifier. It is quite a breakthrough in oxygenated bathing. The Cleanbath saturates bath and/or spa water with ozone, and removes any impurities that could be absorbed into your skin. Everyone knows ozone can do that, but here's the breakthrough: In the confined spaces of a bathroom ozone might concentrate to the point where it could irritate the mucous membranes of some people. This device does not allow this to happen. Although the water is saturated with ozone, the ozone is prevented from escaping the water. All the advantages, and none of the disadvantages. The Cleanbath ozone generator head section is detachable, and makes a nice little inexpensive ozone source for other applications as well, like kitchen drinking water purification. Q. We've heard you have been very busy with lecturing, video, and writing. What have you been doing lately? A. As the author of "Oxygen Therapies." I have been on over 300 radio and TV stations and given over 60 lectures advising people that ozone, peroxide drinks, Homozon, stabilized oxygen products, and other oxygen therapies are being used worldwide by doctors to eliminate or improve many diseases including Cancer, AIDS, and you name it. I reached this personal conclusion after interviewing thousands of patients, and hundreds of doctors, and visiting many clinics in the US, Canada, Mexico, Australia, and New Zealand. I spend my money and energy trying to educate people solely for humanitarian reasons. I am not getting rich, I am in debt. The general public is still unaware of oxygen therapies, and therefore, so called "experts" - who have had no training or clinical experience at all in any oxidative modality - still get away with proclaiming things like "ozone is worthless." This means that it is left to us, the common people, to get the real truth out. The FDA and AMA continue to somehow ignore 50 years of blatantly non-toxic clinical use of ozone to successfully treat over 30 diseases in Europe, so we must gather the proof of it's efficacy ourselves, without any staff, or government or big money grants, by using volunteer efforts and individual contributions. To achieve my aim of truth telling, I am writing 3 books and producing an Oxygen Therapies Video. I recently went to Florida and California where I videotaped about a dozen people definitely crediting ozone for complete cancer cures, and one AIDS cure (PCR negative). These previously-headed-for-death people hardly think that ozone is "worthless," and many expressed anger and frustration at the policies of a large south Florida daily newspaper. The paper keeps writing article after article saying ozone is worthless, so the people who had cured their cancers with ozone showed up in the reporter's office one by one and said "Why not write the truth of my cancer cure? Here's my proof." His reply? He told them he was "not interested," and ignored them. Is this honest journalism? Should people buy that paper? As far as publication dates go, no, I do not know exactly when my new works will be out, because everyone keeps convincing me to lecture or be on TV somewhere, so stay tuned to "The Family News" for availability announcements. Large and small contributions will be gratefully accepted to help finance these expensive projects. Keep those questions coming in.

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 - to us at the following addresses. 1.
