     ASK MR. 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. 

Thanks, and Happy Oxygen!

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
