The Politics of AIDS and Ozone

By Thomas Levy, MD From " Extraordinary Science" Jul-Sep 1994

Possibly one of the best therapies ever discovered for AIDS, other infectious diseases, and most degenerative, or chronic illnesses (including cancer) is oxygen therapy, especially in the form of properly used ozone therapy. The main "drawbacks" in any form of ozone therapy are its simplicity and its minimal cost. The medical industry relies on therapies that are costly and require substantial expertise in their administration. Anything that comes along that appears clinically effective while remaining inexpensive is viewed skeptically, at best. The systematic and ongoing efforts at spreading disinformation and propaganda seem to know no bounds. In the Federal Register of 2/13/76, the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) asserted that "Ozone" is a toxic gas with no know medical uses."(1)

When ozone is formed from ordinary air exposed to electrical discharge or ultraviolet light, other toxic gasses, such as nitrogen oxides, are formed as well. Ozone therapies use ozone generated from pure, medical grade oxygen. The toxicity question, then, is a potential point of misunderstanding. However, stating ozone has no known medical uses is nothing short of sheer lunacy.

Ozone has been used successfully on scores of diseases in Europe, especially Germany, for over 50 years. Over 6,000 articles on the medical usage's of ozone are in the world literature. Nearly every disease process responds favorably to any therapy that effectively increases cellular oxygen content. Furthermore, the safety profile of proper administration is virtually unparalleled. I had the opportunity to witness multiple intravenous ozone treatments in the office of Dr. Horst Kief in West Germany. It is a very simple, very safe procedure. In a survey of German ozone therapists, 5,579,238 ozone treatments on 384,775 patients demonstrated a side effect rate of only 0.0007%, and the side effects were uniformly minor and not even remotely life-threatening. On the other hand, over a million patients are hospitalized annually in the US due to side effects of prescription medication, and over 100,000 of such individual die from such drug usage. If one person in the US dies even indirectly from the usage of a vitamin product or an herbal concoction, the FDA quickly moves to outlaw accessibility to such a product, but they remain strangely blinded to the carnage wrought annually by our pharmaceutical industry. Dr. Hans Nieper, an ozone-using doctor in Hanover, Germany, reports that in his medical practice on colon cancer he sees an interesting assemblage of American VIP's:

You wouldn't believe how many officials or relatives or acquaintances of FDA officials come to see me as patients in Hanover. You wouldn't believe directors of the American Medical Association, or American Cancer Association, or the presidents of orthodox cancer institutes. That's the fact.
(2) Very, very gradually mainstream American researchers are "testing the ozone waters" In 1991 a main journal for the American Society of Hematology, Blood, published an article demonstrating that ozone treatment inactivated human retroviruses
( including HIV) in human body fluids and blood product preparations. The researchers concluded

"Ozone has potent anti-HIV-1 activity in cell culture media and factor V!!! preparations. Although the exact mechanism by which ozone mediates its effect remains unclear at this time, it is readily apparent that ozone may be of use in rendering factor VIII and possibly other blood products, both proteinaceous and cellular, free of HIV-1 and other infectious agents."
