It was discovered by Schonbein in 1840 and has been used to purify water and treat patients for more than 160 years. Some major cities in Europe have used ozone to purify the municipal water supply since the turn of the century. The Los Angeles municipal water treatment facility uses ozone, and is the largest in the world. Most swimming pools in Europe use ozone rather than chlorine (a WMD) to purify water. It has been known for at least 100 years that ozone is highly germicidal in that it will almost instantly kill virtually all viruses, bacteria, fungi, parasites, molds, cancer, etc. It is known to oxidize just about all manmade chemicals also.
Ozone therapy was accepted medicine in the USA from at least 1880 until 1932, a period of fifty-two years.
In 1881 Dr. J.H. Kellogg used ozone in steam saunas at his Battle Creek, Michigan clinic. He wrote about this in his book, \"Diphtheria: Its Nature, Causes, Prevention and Treatment.\"
In 1885, the Florida Medical Association published \"Ozone\" by Dr. Charles J. Kenworthy, MD, detailing the use of ozone for therapeutic purposes.
In 1896, the electrical genius Nikola Tesla patented his first ozone generator, and in 1900 he formed the Tesla Ozone Co. Tesla sold ozone machines and ozonated olive oil to doctors.
In 1898 Dr. Benedict Lust, a German doctor practicing in New York and the founder of Naturopathy, wrote many articles and books on ozone. Naturopathy has as its foundation the use of heat, light, air and water. Ozone qualifies as the \'air\' segment.
In 1902, J.H. Clarke\'s \"A Dictionary of Practical Materia Medica\", London, described the successful use of ozonated water, he called it \"Oxygenium\"in treating anemia, cancer, diabetes, influenza, morphine poisoning, canker sores, strychnine poisoning and whooping cough.
In 1902, Dr. Charles Linder MD, of Spokane, Washington was written up in an article in a local newspaper which stated that he injected ozone into patients as part of his standard medical practice.
In 1904 \"The Medical Uses of Hydrozone and Glycozone\" by Charles Marchand, a New York chemist. Hydrozone was another name for ozonated water and Glycozone was another name for ozonated olive oil. This book is in the Library of Congress with the US Surgeon General\'s stamp of approval on it.
In 1910 Sears sold ozone generators.
In 1911, \"A Working Manual of High Frequency Currents\" was published by Dr. Noble Eberhart, MD, the head of the Dept. of Physiologic Therapeutics at Loyola University, Chicago. He details the use of ozone to treat tuberculosis, anemia, chlorosis, tinnitus, whooping cough, asthma, bronchitis, hay fever, insomnia, pneumonia, diabetes, gout and syphilis.
In 1912, Dr. H.C. Bennett published \"Electro-Therapeutic Guide\". He described the inhaling of Ozol, which is what he called ozone after bubbling it through eucalyptus, pine or thyme oils.
In 1913, the Eastern Association for Oxygen Therapy was formed by Dr. Eugene Blass and some German associates.
In 1920, Dr. Charles Neiswanger, MD, President of the Chicago Hospital College of Medicine published \"Electro Therapeutical Practice.\" Chapter 32 was entitled \"Ozone as a Therapeutic Agent.\"
In 1929, a book called \"Ozone and Its Therapeutic Action\" was published in the USA. It listed 114 diseases and how to treat them with ozone. Its authors were the heads of leading American hospitals.
In 1930 The Journal of The American Medical Association published an article called: \"The Therapeutic Use of Oxygen in Coronary Thrombosis\"
1931 Dr. Otto Warburg wins first Nobel Prize for work proving cancer is caused by a lack of oxygen in the cells. He states in \"The Prime Cause and Prevention of Cancer\" that the cause of cancer is no longer a mystery, we know it occurs whenever any cell is denied 60% of its oxygen requirements. This occurs through a buildup of pollution or toxicity within and around the cell which blocks and then damages the cellular oxygen respiration mechanism.
Beginning Of Ozone Cover-up: (3 years after saying it was \"therapeutic\")
In 1933, the American Medical Association (AMA), headed up by M. Fishbein, set out to eliminate in the USA all medical treatments that were competitive to drug therapy. The suppression of the use of ozone therapy by doctors in the USA began then, and continues to this day, except in thirteen states, where currently doctors are protected by state laws.
1938 In the Parisian Medical Bulletin, Paul Aubourg, Honorary Electro-Radiologist in the Hospitals of Paris, published \"Medical Ozone: Production, Dosage, and Methods of Clinical Application Using Rectal Insufflation\" noted that of 465 patients, the colon capacity varied from 150 to 800ccs so everyone was x-ray photographed to determine the proper dosage. Vaginal insufflations were common. Breathable concentrations of ozone were routinely applied to infected sinuses. Intermuscular injections were abandoned as too painful and ineffective. In 8000 applications of ozone, there were no accidents or harmful side effects.
Government Cover-up Begins:
In the 1940s at the request of the AMA, the FDA began seizing ozone generators.
1944 Dr. Otto Warburg won his second Nobel Prize for his work linking cancer to damaged cell respiration due to a lack of oxygen at the cellular level.
1951 Dr. William Turska, Chairman of the Committee on Scientific Research of the American Naturopathic Association published \"Oxidation.\" He pioneered the breathing of Aethozol (ozone passed through selected oils). He also pioneered and maintained one of the best methods of putting ozone into the body was to put up to 250 cc\'s directly into the portal circulation through the rectal veins with no pain, discomfort, or side effects. With repeated application, this completely cleans the liver.
1956 Two time Nobel Prize winner Dr. Otto Warburg published in Science Magazine \"On the Origin Of Cancer Cells.\"
1961 John Wiley and Sons published in the Encyclopedia of Chemical Technology, the symptoms of breathing high concentrations of ozone are acute, there appear to be no chronic affects among normally healthy people because the body has the ability to repair such damages. \"No free radical reactions which directly involve ozone have been observed. During the 80 year history of the large scale usage of ozone, there has never been a human death attributed to it.\"
1965 Senator Edward Long holds U.S. Senate hearings where Dr. Herbert Ley, FDA Commissioner testifies that the FDA \"protects\" the big drug companies and are subsequently rewarded, using the government\'s police powers they attack those who threaten the big drug companies. And you thought they are there to protect the public.
1969 U.S. Congress studies the FDA and states that 37 of the top 49 officials of the FDA who left the agency moved into high corporate positions with the large companies they had regulated.
1975 The U.S. Government General Accounting Office studied the FDA and revealed that 150 FDA officials owned stock in the companies they were supposed to regulate.
Government Corruption & Lies:
1976 The FDA then publishes: \"Ozone is a toxic gas with no known medical uses.\"
1980 Dr. Sweet Dept of obstetrics and Gynecology, Washington University School of Medicine, St Louis, Mo) & W. Hagar (St Louis Air Pollution Control) publish in Science Magazine, a U.S. peer reviewed scientific journal, their study: \"Ozone Selectively Inhibits Human Cancer Cell Growth.\" Announced \"Evidently the mechanisms for defense against ozone damage are impaired in human cancer cells.\" \"All of the cancer cells (lung, breast, uterine and endometrial) showed growth inhibition in ozone at .3 and .5 ppm\" while the normal cells were not affected.\" \"Evidently cancer cells are less able to compensate for the oxidative burden of ozone than normal cells.\" They also stated that ozone inhibits cancer 40 to 60%, and up to 90%, yet there is no response from mainstream medicine.
1980 The German Medical Society states 384,775 patients were treated with ozone with a minimum of 5,579,238 applications and the side effect rate observed was only .000005 per application! (That is virtually 0%) The report also stated \"The majority of adverse effects were caused by ignorance about ozone therapy (operator error).\"
1983 In Italy 58 cases of Herpes Simplex showed complete recovery in two to five days following ozone therapy. \"Results, Herpes Zoster: in all patients healing of skin lesions were observed after a minimum of 5 and a maximum of 12 ozone injections. Herpes Simplex: all patients healed after 1-5 injections. Daily endovenous injections of 20cc.
1983 The chairman of neurosurgery Dr. Jewell Osterholm, at Jefferson Medical
College in Philadelphia, announced that stroke damage can be reversed with spinal injections of ozone. Experiments on lab cats showed the procedure does reverse stroke damage.
1983 SIXTH WORLD OZONE CONFERENCE LIST 33 MAJOR DISEASES
SUCCESSFULLY TREATED WITH OZONE \"Ozone Removes viruses and bacteria from blood, & humans. Successfully used on AIDS, Herpes, Hepatitis, Mononucleosis, Cirrhosis of the liver, Gangrene, Cardiovascular Disease, Arteriosclerosis, High Cholesterol, Cancerous Tumours, Lymphomas, Leukaemia.

Externally, ozone is effective in treating Acne, burns, leg ulcers, open sores and wounds, Eczema, and fungus.\"
1986 Dr. Alexander published case histories of AIDS patients treated with ozone who are now completely healthy and back at work.
1986 Medizone, Inc. states all stored blood can be decontaminated with ozone, and ALL HIV can be eliminated. Medizone applies for human test approval. Despite 50 years of medical ozone\'s use on humans by over 7,000 physicians, and flawless animal studies, the FDA won\'t allow human testing in the U.S.
In 1987 Dr. Hans Neiper, an ozone using doctor in Hanover, FRG, in an video taped interview, talks about his colon cancer work. Although he can\'t divulge the name of his patients, \"President Reagan is a very nice man.\" And, \"You wouldn\'t believe how many FDA officials or relatives or acquaintances of FDA officials come to see me as patients in Hanover. You wouldn\'t believe this, or directors of the American Medical Association, or American Cancer Association, or the presidents of orthodox cancer institutes. That\'s the fact.\"
In 1987 K.S. Zanker presents ozone has benefit in cancer treatment paper at the 2nd International Conference on Anticarcinogenesis and Radiation Protection Gaithersburg Maryland \"The selectively inhibitive effect of medical ozone prepared from pure oxygen on tumorous human cell cultures has been known for a long time, and has recently been confirmed once more.\"
In 1987 Cuban (FDA equivalent) National Inst. For Scientific Research conducts ozone animal studies proving ozone is non-toxic, non-mutagenic, non-carcinogenic. (Ozone won\'t cause toxicity, mutations, or cancer)
In 1987 Strahlenther Onkol in the German Cancer Journal states: \"Recently, evidence was provided that ozone has a selective effect on an ovarian carcinoma, two solid adenocarcinomas of the ovary and one endomentrial carcinoma.\"
In 1989 \"Ozone Science and Engineering\" publishes Immunological Examinations In Patients With Chronic Conditions Under Administration Of Ozone/Oxygen Mixtures;\" states \"A significant increase in IgG, the most important immunoglobulin in the immune system. must be assessed as an immunostimulation. No immunosuppressive effect occurs, On a long term basis, no kind of immunosuppressive behavior caused by ozone application can be found in the dosage range selected.\"
In 1989 \"Ozone Science and Engineering\" publishes \"The Influence Of ozone On Tumor Tissue In Comparison With Healthy Tissue\" \"The in vitro results clearly show that a pronounced influence on tumor metabolism, which does not occur in healthy tissue, is indeed possible with ozone. Because, here in particular, the respiratory cycle and glycolysis as well as general oxygen utilization in tumor tissue are positively influenced by ozone therapy.\"
In 1989 Cuban M.D.\'s are successfully treating sickle cell anemia, ankle ulcers, farm accidents, and ocular (RP, retinitis pigmentosa) disease.
In 1990 Experimental Chemotherapy publication states: \"In vitro Synergistic Activity of 5-Fluorouracil with Low-Dose Ozone against a Chemo resistant Tumor Cell Line and Fresh Human Tumor Cells\" \"Our results indicate that ozone in combination with 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) makes a 5-FU resistant cell line susceptible for the combined treatment modality. Furthermore, ozone acts synergistically or at least additive to chemotherapy in different tumor cell suspensions, derived from the breast and the colon.\"
In 1992 Science and Technology section of the Canadian Government\'s Supply and Services Dept publishes Better Blood Sterilization With Ozone. The products of this research have worldwide applications,\' says DND\'s Capt. Shannon. \'In the right concentration, ozone sounds almost too good to be true. We\'re trying not to be overly enthusiastic, but the data so far is very compelling.\"
So now you know, the generally unknown history of ozone therapy.
So, since 1933, the AMA and the FDA have done everything in their power to prevent ozone therapy from being used or even known about, in order to protect the profits of the pharmaceutical industry and promote the practices of the membership of the AMA.
These days, the FDA and the giant pharmaceuticals have interlocking directorships. People are working, and taking money, from both sides, while still supposedly maintaining their impartiality.
Most negative information on the internet regarding ozone seems to be derived from large corporations in conjunction with government bodies to protect their vested interests.
We observed a group of 70 patients with insulin-dependent and non-insulin-dependent diabetes. After the course of ozone therapy the average level of hyperglycemia had a 26% decrease.
Ozone activates glucose metabolism that results in increasing content of 2,3 diphosphoglycerate in erythrocytes which provides better oxygen supply into the tissues.
Hypoxia control with the help of ozone therapy is of the key importance in the course of treatment.
After the course of ozone therapy the patients had significant decrease in the levels of urine, cholesterol and fibrinogen. - By the Ministry of Health Service of Russian Federation the State Medical Academy.
Ozone and Cancer cells
Most interior living cells have a pH of about 6.8. Blood plasma and other fluids surrounding the cells have a pH of about 7.2 to 7.4. Various substances, called buffers, regulate these pH levels so that they do not vary much. Buffers either bond ions or release ions to maintain stability of pH.
The body produces energy through the process of oxidation. Sugar (carbohydrate : carbon, hydrogen and oxygen) is oxidized by oxygen in the cell, releasing ATP, the energy currency of the cell. The more oxygen available, the more energy released. People with low energy are starved for oxygen. Oxidation supplies the heat in the body. People with low body temperature are also starved for oxygen.
The left over products of this process, if any, must also be oxidized, requiring more oxygen. If it is not available, these products can build up and clog the cells. One of the most detrimental is carbon monoxide, which is a poison.
By introducing ozone into the body, oxidation is increased and the left over products, including carbon monoxide, are oxidized and rendered harmless. Energy increases and body temperature rises.
The cells of the body are protected from excessive oxidation by enzymes which reduce the oxygen (provide it with electrons). These enzymes are glutathione peroxidase, superoxide dismutase, catalase and reductase. These guardian enzymes are produced in increased amounts with the beneficial stress produced by oxygen/ozone therapy.
A lack of oxidation in the cells, caused by a buildup of anti-oxidants, results in cancer if the supply of oxygen to the cell for respiration falls below 60% of its requirements. The cell, cut off from oxygen by the blocking action of the antioxidants, is forced to ferment its sugar, and rapidly loses its ability to maintain its differentiation (as a liver cell, or a prostate cell or a colon cell, etc.) Without differentiation, the cell has no governor on replication. It ferments its sugar and throws off lactic acid and carbon monoxide, both of which are acidfying.
If the area around the cell becomes too acid, and is not buffered by sufficient amounts of calcium, a passing T-cell or macrophage will be stimulated by the excessive acidity and produce some enzyme growth factor, to \'heal the wound\', as it perceives it.
Stimulated by enzyme growth factor, the fermenting cell will replicate itself endlessly. This is called cancer.
Ozone therapy (and the resulting hydro peroxides) will attack cancer cells directly because the cells lack the protective enzymes.
