   ASK MR. OXYGEN WITH ED MCCABE

"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 an international public discussion of the
oxygen therapy centered events, products, and methods being used
worldwide.  Copyright 1992 by Ed McCabe.   

Q. 1. "What makes stabilized oxygen work?"  

A. The so called "stabilized oxygen" products are actually salts
of oxygen diluted in water.  These safe as directed, yet potent
oxidizers, sometimes contain various proprietary additives to
enhance their effectiveness.  They are essentially a formulation
mixing a solution of mildly buffered sodium chlorite with
deionized water.  These products are weakly buffered to an
alkaline Ph of around 12%, but unlike highly buffered drain
cleaners or other strong alkaline solutions, they immediately
loose their alkalinity upon contact with any substance that is of
a lower Ph.  Bacteria, viruses, the acid mantle of human skin,
and the hydrochloric acid in our stomachs all react to
immediately render their alkalinity harmless to humans.   They
are generally colorless and odorless, but a drop rubbed between
the fingertips will drop the Ph and release the characteristic
chlorine dioxide odor.  Many people mistake this odor for the
smell of bleach, but it isn't.  If the wrong analytical tests are
performed on these solutions, they will give a false positive for
the presence of household bleach.  Oxidative chemistry is an
exacting science, and only specialists in the field are
knowledgeable enough to select the correct test procedures to
analyze these substances, NaClO2 & NaClO3.  

Sold in concentrate form and always diluted before use, they are
called "Stabilized Oxygen" by most people, but this is
technically a misnomer, since this implies somehow oxygen has
been turned liquid and bottled up, which it isn't.  These
formulations work by releasing some molecular oxygen, chlorite
ions, and trace amounts of sodium and chlorine dioxide into the
blood plasma.  All this happens when the ingested diluted
stabilized oxygen hits the stomach acid, becomes highly unstable,
and breaks down immediately.  Once the ClO species are in the
body, they create natural enzyme/chlorite combinations that
supply the immune and energy production enzymes with some basic
chemicals they need to function.  Modern living has robbed us of
an adequate supply of these chemicals.    The newest version of
these compounds is "double buffered."  Most are buffered only to
survive the acid environment of the stomach.  The new one is
double buffered with a proprietary formulation to also release
oxygen into the alkaline environment of the small and large
intestine.  Each of the buffering systems allows the
incorporation of significant amounts of oxygen bearing
electrolytes, therefore the manufacturer states that they "can
almost double the amount of oxygen bearing electrolytes they can
put into the system and be assured it will reach the colon and
produce it in the alkaline environment.  Apart from all the
science, I have interviewed hundreds of people who, due to their
use of these products, have reported increased functions and
energy, and disease remissions that even included interior
cancers being reabsorbed into the body, and external cancers
falling off when internal and external application was applied
for a long enough period of time in a high enough dosage." 
Athletes and even animals are showing wonderful results.  Watch
for my new book on this subject.   

Q. 2. "How do you feel about oxygen bathing?"  

A. GREAT!  It is one of the safest and best ways to get more
oxygen into the body.  Your skin is the largest organ of
absorption and excretion you have.  Anything you soak it in will
be taken up and circulated through the system, so many put their
bod in either diluted hydrogen peroxide, or in ozone gas
circulating in a bag.   A friend of mine uses his spa to hold
water and peroxide at a level of around 100 parts per million
peroxide, and bubbles ozone through it besides.  He buys a "car
boy" container of food grade 35% peroxide (Dupont's "Perone" for
example) from the local chemical distributor and adds it as
needed.  For good measure he also bubbles ozone through the
water.    

Some people just ozonate their baths, while medically, I know
some AIDS patients getting good results by taking 3 rectal
insufflations per day and in between that, getting into an ozone
"bag" twice a day.  They take a hot shower to "open the pores"
(actually dilate the capillaries) and still wet, get their body
into an airtight bag that closes around the neck and covers them
completely, except for the head, since you can't breathe
concentrated ozone. The bag is continuously filled with high
concentration medical ozone, and they soak in the ozone bag for
1/2 hour.    

Doctors are putting up to one gallon of 35% peroxide into a
bathtub full of water for AIDS patients to soak in twice a day. 
I believe the external bodily application of oxygen products,
perhaps combined with water and frequency machines, is a whole
untapped vista of possibility.    

Q. 3. "We heard you testified before the NIH (National Institute
of Health) Office of Unconventional Medicine.  What happened?"  

A.: Lots of excitement from people who never heard of this.  They
all want data.  Plenty of data exists, but Doctors are too afraid
of the FDA to testify.  A sad state of affairs.  Here's what I
said to the panel members:   

Presented 6/18/92 @ NIH Bethesda, Maryland                   

MEDICAL OZONE THERAPIES: 50 YEARS OF OVERLOOKING A PROVEN ANSWER
FOR DISEASES LIKE CANCER AND NOW AIDS

TESTIMONY:  Oxygen Therapies have been in use medically for over
100 years.  The basis of the therapies is quite simple:
Ultimately toxicity collects within the body over time.  This
buildup of toxicity can have physical, emotional, and behavioral
co-factors which must also be addressed.  The buildup of toxicity
within the body invites the proliferation of anaerobic disease
causing microorganisms. Oxygen therapies are used to flood the
body with active forms of oxygen.  When the body becomes safely
saturated with these special forms of oxygen, it reaches a state
of purity wherein the disease microorganisms are killed, and the
underlying toxicity is oxidized and eliminated. The patient's
immune system must then be rebuilt with vitamin, mineral, and if
needed, behavioral modification and other therapies. In this way
diseases like AIDS, cancer and multiple sclerosis are being
eliminated or at least controlled.  

Ozone therapy is one of the oxygen therapies.  Over 5,000 medical
ozone generators have been sold in Europe and are presently in
use by as many doctors worldwide.  Specific concentrations and
volumes of ozone gas made from pure oxygen are readily applied to
the body through intravenous infusions without any harm, usually
during a minimum standard treatment schedule of 42 days in a row. 
The ozone breaks down into various oxygen subspecies which
contact anaerobic viruses, microbes, or diseased cells and
oxidize them while leaving the normal healthy cells alone.  The
standard 42 day minimum treatment requirement is being challenged
by recent developments, notably in the field of ozone equipment
and other protocol refinements.  Ozone therapy was used medically
by Nikola Tesla in 1900.  It has been in continual use for over
50 years in the U.S., but due to our legal pressures, ozone is
presently only widely used in Europe.  When the proper protocols
are followed, ozone has been proven highly effective in the
treatment - and possibly the elimination - of over 40 common
diseases. There are about 300 doctors in the U.S. daily using
some form of oxygen therapies today.   

Ozone therapies are among the safest therapies ever used. One
European study of over 5.5 million treatments showed a side
effect rate of .0007%, probably among the lowest of any therapy
known. Side effects like fever and weakness are minor and
temporary.  M.D.'s characterize ozone as "blatantly non-toxic." 
I have kept in continual contact with 6 U.S. MD's who,
independent of each other, have collectively reported bringing
over 300 AIDS patients to HIV negative status, including complete
eradication of any secondary disease factors such as energy loss,
weight loss, diarrhea, etc.  I have also interviewed many AIDS
patients who have been getting ozone therapy on their own, and
all those who followed good protocols reported an immediate
increase in energy, weight gain, and T cell stabilization or
increase in a few weeks.  The most notable of the ozone
physicians to date is Dr. James Boyce, who brought 237 AIDS
patients to health, each within 30 days.  His results were
verified by major independent lab testing before and after.  Like
most doctors in our country who have bravely tried to help their
patients with ozone therapy, Dr. Boyce has subsequently been
attacked by several government agencies trying to put him out of
business.  Therefore, he cannot appear here today due to the
advice of his attorneys.  However, he has expressed a desire to
work with the committee in the future.  While our country reels
from the impact of AIDS, this physician, who has the best
documented track record in the country of treating and perhaps
even eliminating AIDS, now spends his days farming instead of
practicing the medicine he was so proficient at.   

Another typical modern case is that of Dr. John Pittman from
Raleigh, North Carolina.  He started using ozone in 1991 with
excellent results, but had his research project cut short when
local physicians who never heard of ozone - and didn't bother to
find out anything about it - turned him into the state medical
board which asked him to stop using ozone, since it is not FDA
approved. Dr. Pittman is also hopeful of continuing his research. 
The Medizone company of New York, which holds a patent on blood
ozonation, has continually been on file with the FDA asking for
permission to begin ozone trials on AIDS patients since 1986. 
For six years in a row, the FDA has told them to "go back and do
even more flawless ozone animal studies." This is in spite of the
fact that ozone therapy has been used safely on humans for over
50 years.  

Safety of application or effectiveness is not questionable among
the physicians who have personally used ozone daily for 30 years
on humans.  Medizone and others are ready to begin strictly
designed and monitored human trials.  And, like many U.S.
physicians I have interviewed, would have commenced clinical
trials six years ago - if not for the FDA preventing it.    

The biggest problem is that in 1976 the FDA declared ozone a
"toxic gas with no medical uses" via publication in the Federal
Register.  I have written that: "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
drug therapies, and ignores well over 50 years of safe and
effective medical use on hundreds of thousands of humans - backed
up with medical references and clinical studies in Switzerland,
Italy, France, Germany, Australia, New Zealand, Mexico, and the
U.S."   Although legally, ozone is believed by some to be
"grandfathered" since its use in U.S. medicine predates the
existence of the FDA itself, no one has tested this position in
court.  So the FDA - and the state medical agencies and boards
that take their lead from the FDA - are actively persecuting any
physician using ozone.  

Under these prevailing "siege" type conditions I could get none
of the U.S. doctors who have achieved great successes with ozone
therapy to come here today.  When asked to appear, the doctors
all reacted in fear of the government, fear of the loss of their
licenses, and fear of being raided and cleaned out by SWAT teams
in the same way that Dr. Jonathan Wright was treated most
recently.  

Upon inquiry, I commonly heard: "I'm not ready to appear." 
"Don't mention my name!" "The doctor already fled the country."
"I'm scared to death they'll take away my license."    On the
bright side, 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, and submit to you the
attached chronological history of U.S. medical ozone therapy to
date.    

Conclusion due to the many interviews I have conducted: It is my
opinion that the AIDS problem has been solved.  If we can get
ozone doctors both immunity from prosecution and funding for
clinical trials, within 90 days the only thing left to do would
be to implement the existing solution.  

4. Q. What is new on the ozone AIDS scene?.  

A. Too many AIDS patients think just getting a few ozone shots
solves the problem.  The doctors actually getting complete and
lasting results (HIV negative, etc.), not just stabilization,
have all used combination therapies with minerals, good food,
vitamins, counseling, etc.  I am in constant communication with
many doctors who are secretly doing clinical studies to get
together even more data for the skeptics.  Ozone is on the move,
and now is the time.  Get involved!       

5. Q. "Where are you speaking lately?"  

A. Well, I just spoke at the NIH as you know, and I also
addressed The Foundation For The Advancement Of Medicine - Dr.
Robert Atkins' group in NY (The new video of this is available
from The Family News). On August 29th & 30th, I'll be at the NHF
in Chicago. Sept 5th and 6th, the Cancer Control Society in
Pasadena, and Sept 12th & 13th, the Whole Life Expo in Los
Angeles.  October 10th is the Wellness Expo in Philadelphia. 
November starts me in New Zealand, and then to The Body Mind and
Spirit Festival and other venues including radio & TV in
Australia.  January looks like England. In short, where there is
a need, I respond as best I can. 

    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
