Hey people, heres an article i believe everyone here should read, it's just plain facinating, i realllllllllllly encourage you lot to read it!

--------------------------------

During the early sixties, scientists at the Institute of Aerospace Medicine taught my colleagues and I about the dangers of oxygen deprivation. We learned those lessons very well; harsh lessons that many years later prompted me to use oxygen in an attempt to lower my high blood pressure when all pharmaceutical remedies had failed.

A startling side effect of that eighties oxygen therapy was its simultaneous cure of my antibiotic-resistant strain of deadly Golden Staphylococcus, the 'incurable disease' I caught in a Dutch hospital when admitted for a minor operation during 1977-1978. Amazing though it may seem, in a single month, oxygen therapy killed the Golden Staphylococcus completely, despite its having resisted every antibiotic known to medical science for more than ten years.

Though oxygen therapy is far from new, many people have difficulty understanding how an apparent excess of such a simple element can change their entire lives. Perhaps the main reason is that most of us take oxygen for granted, assuming the atmosphere is full of it, and that any dangerous drop in atmospheric oxygen will be heralded by some sort of magical warning. Unfortunately, for humans there is no warning at all.

Oxygen deprivation starts in such an insidious way that it is not possible for the lay person to determine whether or not there is an adequate supply. To fully understand the benefits of receiving too much oxygen, it is first necessary to understand what happens when we get too little. So before reading about the personal benefits I obtained from oxygen therapy in the eighties, join me first in a short trip back to the future: to the clanging steel doors and hissing air compressors at the Institute of Aerospace Medicine in Europe, thirty-five years ago.

The main attraction inside the huge central domed building is a complex of three large hypobaric chambers, each capable of putting a group of men through just about every atmospheric change ever known. As we file in through the door of 'Chamber Two' and strap in for the first time, none of us is ready for the shattering sensations we all feel as the air inside the chamber is suddenly removed by explosive decompression in less than three seconds, blasting us up to an equivalent rarefied atmospheric altitude of 40, 000 feet, faster than any jet fighter could ever climb there.

It is an unnerving introduction none of us will ever forget. We all experience the pain caused by the sudden drastic pressure change on our eardrums, and the shock of having our vision completely obscured by a thin film of hoar frost which instantly coats the tinted flash visors on our flying helmets. We are incredibly conscious of the voice in our headphones continually warning us not to remove the oxygen masks from our faces.

"Remember you are now well above the tropopause," the voice drones on remorselessly, "if you remove your oxygen masks you will lose consciousness in seconds, and be dead in less than three minutes." It is an exhilarating exercise and we laugh about it afterwards, though our laughter sounds hollow and far too loud. For every one of us in the decompression chamber knows that life itself flows only through a fragile rubber hose plugged into each of our oxygen masks. Life itself is positive-pressure 100% oxygen, much more than most of us derive from our atmosphere, but essential at the lowered atmospheric pressure in the chamber.

Next we take part in a demonstration of the dangers of slow oxygen deprivation. After entering the chamber without oxygen masks, we are given large lined note pads and told to write our Christian names neatly on each line, once every three minutes. It all sounds stupidly simple, and we sit there as the air slowly hisses out through the vent valves, and the decompression chamber gradually starts a slow climbs to an altitude of 26, 000 feet. We all think we are doing a great job, and have no idea that the decreasing oxygen level is severely impairing our intellectual capabilities and reaction times. As we find out, this is the deadly danger of slow oxygen deprivation. So insidious is the process, that despite being briefed about the effects in advance and knowing that the procedure is taking place, not one of us believes anything is going wrong.

Afterwards in the debriefing room, the instructors produce our lined note pads with a flourish, pointing out that as oxygen content decreased with altitude, the quality of our writing progressively deteriorated. By about 25,000 feet it had changed to a meaningless blur. Our shock is profound, because we had been staring at those pads intently, convinced we were doing just what we were told to. Instead, we were victims of a deadly illusion: our brains being starved of oxygen so slowly that our senses were rendered incapable of recognising the lethal danger.

The Institute of Aerospace Medicine was tasked with teaching us about the dangers of oxygen deprivation at high and extreme altitudes, so its instructors did not go into the more complex question of lesser impairment at lower altitudes. It was not their job to do so, but our lined note pads reflected the obvious: Though there was a very sharp change in our writing ability above twenty thousand feet, slight but visible deterioration actually started as low as ten or twelve thousand feet.

How much more deterioration would we detect if we looked at the writing carefully through a microscope? Would we then be able to see micro-impairment at two or three thousand feet? Cold logic based on those official Institute procedures suggests that any oxygen deprivation below the normal concentration found at sea level, is bound to have adverse physical and mental effects on the human body in the long term.

Sadly it is currently impossible to accurately check the oxygen levels in our towns and cities, though I did try to do so before writing this report. A prim spokesman for the Environmental Protection Agency [EPA] advised me that "the Agency only tests for dangerous greenhouse gases. It would be ridiculous to suggest that a major atmospheric gas such as oxygen could be significantly depleted."

Clearly this obnoxious official remained blissfully unaware that outside his front door, thousands of cars were busily pumping out millions of molecules of carbon monoxide through their exhaust systems, each of which then grabbed an atmospheric oxygen molecule to convert itself from a carbon monoxide molecule to a carbon dioxide molecule.

This was unfortunate indeed for all the oxygen-deprived pedestrians standing nearby, who needed the same atmospheric oxygen molecules themselves in order to breathe properly. At street level in downtown Perth during the rush hour, atmospheric oxygen levels drop as low as 10%, or roughly half the 20% figure touted by officialdom as "normal".

Suddenly during the early nineties I was afflicted with blood pressure so high that, as one cynic put it, all I had to do was lie down and let someone build a coffin around me. Though intended as a joke the comment had substance, because massive doses of conventional pharmaceutical drugs had done nothing to reduce the pressures from their horrific levels of 200+/130+ to the normal 120/80. The pressures simply refused to budge, and for many months I was a very good prospect for the local funeral parlour.

Unhappy with this, I started looking for another way out of my predicament and soon found huge quantities of information extolling the virtues of drinking large quantities of hydrogen peroxide. This was a challenge for someone like me with a very conventional background. After all, isn't hydrogen peroxide the stuff that some adventurous ladies use to transform themselves overnight into blonde bombshells? Yes it is, but hydrogen peroxide is also a natural source of free oxygen molecules, literally deserving its alternative title of "Oxygen Water". When a dilute solution is ingested into an empty stomach, the extra oxygen molecules are immediately released into the blood stream.

Researchers have observed the benefits of enhanced oxygen levels in the body, and there is much evidence suggesting beneficial effects and possible cures of diseases as deadly as AIDS and cancer. The available evidence suggests hydrogen peroxide works by oxidising all hostile disease organisms in the body, which normally need greatly decreased oxygen levels in order to survive. Many years ago Nobel Prize winner Dr. Otto Wartburg gave a good example of this when he proved cancer cells generate energy by breaking down glucose without oxygen, though healthy cells must first combine with oxygen to do the same thing. Wartburg's work made it clear that oxygen in any form plays an enormously important role in our personal health and well being.

It rapidly became clear that oxygen therapy would cause me no harm, and might have a beneficial effect on my high blood pressure levels. But how to use it? Prolific though the documentation was on all forms of oxygen therapy, every author had overlaid his or her own thoughts on sources of hydrogen peroxide, dose levels, and so on. Nowhere could I find a straightforward safe procedure for an amateur to use at point-blank notice, so I had to invent one.

Known chemically as H202, hydrogen peroxide comes in a variety of different concentrations with the strongest (and purest) being 35% food or analytical reagent (AR) grades, both of which were available from my local chemical wholesaler in Perth. Having already calculated that it was safe for me to drink glasses of water containing less than 0.075% of hydrogen peroxide by volume, I had to remember to handle the 35% reagent grade H2O2 concentrate with great care, in order to avoid burning holes through my fingers when mixing the dilute drinkable potion. I also had to remember to drink the potion before meals, for if ingested immediately after a slap-up meal, the extra oxygen molecules attempt to oxidise the food in seconds flat. On a couple of occasions I forgot this cardinal rule and was rewarded with a loud burp every five seconds non-stop for more than an hour, which later caused considerable mirth in the family room.

My first step was to buy a half litre of 35% reagent grade H202 from the wholesaler for $26.50, plus a tiny funnel and a small plastic dropper bottle with a removable top. Wearing a pair of disposable 30c surgical gloves and working at the stainless steel sink, I decanted some of the 35% H202 through the funnel into the dropper bottle and replaced the cap. The (dangerous) half litre bottle of 35% H202 was immediately locked away out of reach of the children. Next step was to fill a large glass tumbler two-thirds full of water, and then carefully squeeze twelve drops of 35% H202 into it from the dropper bottle. The split second the H202 entered the glass of water it was diluted and safe, giving me time to put the dropper bottle in the same locked cupboard.

I had already calibrated my volumes and knew that twelve drops of 35% H202 from an average dropper bottle, added to two thirds of a large tumbler of water, resulted in a safe solution containing between 0.055 and 0.070% H202 - quite safe to drink, though it should be pointed out that much of the reference data I read suggested a low starting concentration (say three drops in a glass of water), increasing one drop per day to the higher dose levels.

However, I assumed the authors of those articles were not sitting at their typewriters with their hearts trying to jump out of their chests. Unfortunately my heart was, and there seemed little point in going through such a cautious start-up process. The moment of truth had arrived, and after stirring my concoction with a spoon I swigged it back in seconds. The solution had a tinny taste but was not too bad, and I swiftly learned that a mouthful of fruit juice taken immediately afterwards removed the aftertaste completely. Any juice except pineapple that is, because pineapple juice alone sets up a biochemical reaction which prevents the positive effect of oxygen on the human body.

Then I settled into a routine, taking one glass of 0.070% H202 three times a day before meals, which amounts to about half a litre of dilute potion every 24 hours. Three weeks later I strolled into my doctor's surgery and had my blood pressure checked, though by then the poor fellow's eyes rolled every time I walked through the door. The good doctor had little prior experience of the walking dead, and over the past few months had taken to fumbling nervously every time he was obliged to wrap the cuff around my arm.

But this time he was in for a surprise. The whites of my doctor's eyes glowed like luminous marbles and his hands were still shaking, but he managed to suppress his astonishment. Here was a long-dead patient who for six agonising months had been doubling the drug company's profit margins by swallowing staggering numbers of incredibly expensive but useless pills, now sitting nonchalantly in front of him with a rock-steady blood pressure of exactly120/80. Trying not to be too obvious about it but clearly unable to believe his own trusty equipment, the doc casually checked my blood pressure again, before coughing apologetically and sneakily checking it for a third time.

He asked me if anything in my life had changed, and I responded that the only difference was my vast ingestion of hydrogen peroxide, which may have been a rather cruel thing to say to a fully paid-up member of the A.M.A. By this time the doc was in a state of shock and probably wondering how he could lure me into the nearest psychiatric hospital, but his equipment kept showing him I'd stepped out of my waiting coffin and was apparently in tremendously good health. In the end he was forced to agree that my rather unconventional treatment had worked, and eagerly rushed me out of his surgery. He probably needed time to collect his thoughts. After all, it must come as an awesome shock to have years of expensive pharmaceutical indoctrination at medical school utterly destroyed in less than ten minutes.

But it was to be two more weeks before I realised the hydrogen peroxide had cured another problem, which by direct comparison placed the mere reduction of my critically high blood pressure completely in the shade. Back in 1976 I was rushed into a Dutch hospital for an emergency operation. The Dutch surgeons were very efficient and I was released a few days later with a free but unwanted gift from the operating theatre: Golden Staphylococcus. Luckily I did not know about the deadly implications of "Golden Staph" at the time, but was very upset that this uncomfortable and embarrassing disease was causing problems in my life.

Time and again I underwent savage courses of antibiotics but they had absolutely no beneficial effect whatever. The Golden Staph was with me for life, as proved by pathology checks after each course of antibiotics, which showed the tenacious bug still very much alive and kicking. In fact, the last course of antibiotics was completed only twelve months before I started my oxygen therapy, and a pathology check run two months after that proved the disease as virulent as it had been in Holland during the seventies. This is a matter of documented medical fact on my personal records. Then within a month or so of commencing oxygen therapy, my nasty case of Golden Staph vanished completely.

After more than fifteen years, one of the most dangerous diseases known to hospitals world-wide was killed stone dead by hydrogen peroxide. How? For that I am still looking for answers, but two friendly doctors suggested that by taking Hydrogen Peroxide orally, I had accidentally pumped a very real antiseptic through my blood stream, making it impossible for the Golden Staph to survive. They pointed out that only thirty years ago, 3% hydrogen peroxide was widely used in hospitals as a tremendously effective antiseptic; so effective in fact that festering wounds bathed with it started to bubble and froth as the bacteria were destroyed. Unfortunately, with the introduction of more expensive and thus profitable antiseptics from the pharmaceutical companies, hydrogen peroxide was quietly pushed to the back of the closet, being largely forgotten as the years rolled by.

The time is fast approaching when we may have to re-invent the wheel. On 26 February 1996, the ABC's Four Corners ran a British documentary called "Super Bugs". Huge numbers of British hospitals are contaminated with MRSA, which appears to be an antibiotic resistant strain of guess what? Golden Staphylococcus. But now the bug is killing people in large numbers, even those admitted to hospital with relatively minor complaints. Four Corners cited one particular case of a healthy young man admitted after a motorcycle crash in which he broke his leg, only to die 48 hours later from MRSA contracted within the hospital itself. It was a terrible waste of life, but that young man is far from alone. Incidents of infection in South Wales increased by 700% in a single year, and the local health official there was obliged to admit that MRSA has now reached 'epidemic' proportions. Four Corners also revealed MRSA is now well established in most of the large hospitals on Australia's eastern seaboard, placing every one of us, and our children, at deadly risk.

The medical explanations presented for this spreading scurge were far from convincing. Generally speaking, overall opinion seems to be that 'super' bugs such as MRSA are mutating in such a way that they are defeating virtually all of the powerful antibiotics manufactured by the pharmaceutical companies. The problem here is knowing whether the medical fraternity is putting the horse before the cart or the cart before the horse. Are we to seriously believe that "bug headquarters" is frantically mutating new super bugs in a deadly quest to kill tens of thousands of human beings, and thus destroy the credibility of the pharmaceutical companies?

Of course not, the real reason must be far simpler. It has been known for decades that all powerful antibiotics have serious side effects, not the least of which is destroying the friendly bacteria in our bodies designed from the outset to help combat disease. Indeed, so many enlightened people are familiar with this downside of pharmaceutical medicine that they keep lactobacillus acidophilus in the fridge in one form or another, to undo the damage wrought by the destructive antibiotics, or simply to maintain their good health on a daily basis. Logic dictates that antibiotics powerful enough to create havoc in the digestive tract will certainly cause other less obvious damage as well.

Increasingly, lay opinion is encompassing the notion that over the last thirty years, some doctors have administered antibiotics so frequently to so many patients with so little cause, that the human body is fast becoming immune to the drugs. If true, this is the ugly flip side of the medical opinions provided on the Four Corners programme. Under these circumstances the body might have been weakened by drugs to the point where an ordinary bug such as Golden Staphylococcus could overwhelm it. Put simply, it could be that over-zealous prescription of antibiotics in the past has lowered the body's natural defences to the point where a hitherto harmless bug has become a deadly danger to us all. So is it time to revert to tried and proven remedies of the past?

From personal experience the answer is an unequivocal "Yes". All of our family's pharmaceutically-produced antiseptics and disinfectants have been thrown away and replaced with old-fashioned 3%?and 5% solutions of hydrogen peroxide, which are cheap and work much more efficiently. Drinking oxygen water has become a daily habit in our house, though I toyed with the idea of obtaining a cylinder of 100% medical-grade oxygen gas instead.

The rationale for such a move was that grabbing an oxygen mask and breathing in two deep breaths of 100% oxygen three times a day before meals, was less fiddly that mixing concentrated hydrogen peroxide and water. It would also be safer, because concentrated H202 would not have to be stored in the house at all. Unfortunately the gas manufacturer advised it could only sell me a cylinder of medical-grade oxygen if I had a prescription from a medical doctor!

Stunned by this I asked for an explanation, and was advised the manufacturer's insurance would not cover it if anything "went wrong" while I was inhaling its oxygen. This was making no sense, so I asked if I would need a medical doctor's prescription to acquire a cylinder of carbon dioxide, which will kill a healthy human in seconds if administered in heavy concentrations. No problem. I could buy as much carbon dioxide as I wanted, or even ethylene oxide, which forms the major component of the American FAE (Fuel Air Weapon), designed to kill everyone in a 10,000 square foot area surrounding ground-zero. What I had been told in effect, was that there was no restriction on those gases capable of killing humans by the thousand, but a complete medical block on the one gas needed to improve the quality of human life.

There is no way I could or would blame the gas manufacturer or its personnel for this anomaly, because the incredible order had filtered down from medical bureaucrats in Canberra. Eventually I managed to contact a medical doctor at the Drug Evaluation Branch of the Therapeutic Goods Administration, a division of the Commonwealth Department of Health, and was assured the gas manufacturer had given me correct information.

Oxygen, the doc told me, is now classified as a drug. He politely sent me his visiting card and a copy of the Therapeutic Goods Act 1989, both of which are lying on the table next to me as I write these last few words. Oxygen is now a dangerous drug as determined by Canberra, and that's official.

Medical records prove that oxygen alone was responsible for dramatically lowering my blood pressure, and for completely eradicating the Golden Staphylococcus which plagued me for more than fifteen long years. I would like to believe there is no great pharmaceutical conspiracy behind Canberra's ridiculous decision to restrict the supply of 100% oxygen, preferring to put such apparent lunacy down to a combination of incompetence and stupidity on the part of a handful of bureaucrats.

But is it really that simple? It would be far more comforting for all Australians if we could establish once and for all time that the multinational pharmaceutical corporations are not in de-facto control of our Department of Health.

Tasmanian woodchippers burning off have inadvertently killed the largest hardwood tree in the world.

The 350-year-old eucalyptus regnans, at 79-metre (260ft), was the largest hardwood tree in the world. It was accidentally 'cooked to death' when a fire started by woodchippers raged out of control.

Less oxygen for the atmosphere

I voted liberal so while i sympathise, i'm for the economy. It's just the way of the world, destroy something to the brink of destruction(whaling, cfcs, atomic weapons etc) and then and only then may our leaders put controls in to regulate it (being our oxygen content). Rest in peace worlds largest tree smile.gif

mmm did anyone find the information i posted useful? H202 i think is miraculous personally.

Hydrogen peroxide is toxic. Drinking hydrogen peroxide, even a dilute solution, is potentially dangerous. Don't take my word for it; search the web on the keywords "hydrogen peroxide, quackery" and any other keywords you believe are relevant.

Hydrogen peroxide, H2O2, is a strong oxidizer. It readily releases one oxygen atom, becoming water H2O. The lone oxygen atom is very reactive. It has six valence electrons, so it seeks to steal or borrow two available nearby electrons, so as to have a complete outer shell of eight electrons. Normally, single O atoms react with each other, forming relatively stable O2 molecules, sharing a pair of electrons between them, forming a double covalent bond. This stable form of oxygen is the O2 gas in the atmosphere which we breathe. The lungs are well adapted to handling O2, transferring four O2 molecules to each molecule of hemoglobin in red blood cells. The body uses the molecular O2 form of oxygen for respiration and metabolism, so we are normally protected from the highly reactive atomic O form. A single oxygen atom is a potent free radical; it can do serious damage to live cells.

Hydrogen peroxide is a source of the atomic O form of oxygen. As such, it is effective as an antiseptic, because it is highly toxic to all living cells, including your own.

I understand that you believe what you are saying is correct, however you just don't feal me, THE SINGLE OXYGEN MOLECULE IS THE REASON H202 WORKS!!

lol well heres a quote from a MD. You say the molecule +0 is dangerous, then why is it used extensively all over Europe in many treatments, h202 saves lives, it's oxygen! This article presents facts on WHY is destroys anerobic pathogens, not just heresay on oh im a chemist, trust me. You knock BP as toxic, it's action is to produce h202 which the body continually produces anyway, so thats a retarded statement my friend. Now if you find the time to read this and still disagree thinking yes the U.S knows best, the rest of the world is wrong then i'll present articles from bio-chemists, scientists, you name it. Just to much overwhelming evidence that h202 therapy is prehaps the most extrodanary treatment available to mankinds ills. Unlike oh chuck this on your face, swallow this pill, no take that pill, here take this shot, no put this on your face, nature truely does know best. As pointed out below the human bodies first line of defense to any pathogen is to produce H202, but if overwhelmed then it produces antibodies, makes sense too. What doesn't make sense however is why certain countries refuse to replicate something natural, instead preferring to syntesise patentable materials as the only treatments. Example, vaccines.. Now why would the medical comunity in the U.S for example be looking at vaccine cures when clearly the bodies natural defense is h202, wouldn't it make sense to flood the body with oxygen to destroy what ails you?? or do you believe that taking antibiotics for example which is manmade is the only way to treat disease? Do you see a vested interest in the medical community? Hypothetically h202 cures 90% of diseases, play along for a second, what would happen then? Maybe 95% of the drugs available would be rendered useless costing 100's of billions of dollars, doctors would be jobless, class action suits all over the place suing the medical profession, sound extreme? prehaps but it's a very likely scenario. Silver as another example, used on burn victims in hospitals has a similar effect as oxygen, disabling the enzyme in bacteria essentially suffocating it. I find it hard to take people knocking oxygen treatments when clearly oxygen in one way or another is what keeps us alive and healthy.

----------------------------------------------------

"Intravenous Hydrogen Peroxide Therapy by Ron Kennedy, M.D., Santa Rosa, California Bio-oxidative medicine is the addition of oxygen directly to the tissues of the body in the form of singlet oxygen (lone oxygen atoms) in a highly reactive state. To more fully understand the chemistry involved, review: Bio-oxidative Medicine <../specialties/_bio-oxidative_medicine.html>.

In living systems oxygen (as O2) is transported by hemoglobin, a protein found in red blood cells. This is a highly efficient way of conducting oxygen from the lungs to the tissues of the body and insuring it does not react with anything along the way. Because it is bound by hemoglobin, it is unable to react to anything else until it is released by the hemoglobin (which then picks up carbon dioxide and transports it to the lungs).

In bio-oxidative medicine, oxygen is introduced directly into the body as hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) or as ozone (O3). Although ozone is used safely and with great benefit throughout Europe and in many other parts of the world, the medical establishment in the United States refuses to recognize it as a valid therapy and actively persecutes doctors who use it. Luckily, hydrogen peroxide is not treated in this way, even though it is an equally powerful oxidative approach.

The chemical reaction looks like this: H2O2 _ H2O + O- This is chemical shorthand to indicate that in the body, hydrogen peroxide is converted to water and singlet oxygen. This singlet oxygen located at the end of this reaction is a powerful oxidizing agent. It is the active agent in hydrogen peroxide therapy.

Hydrogen peroxide is infused into the circulatory system through a vein in the arm. It drips in over a ninety-minute period. Five cc of pharmaceutical-grade, three-percent hydrogen peroxide are put in 500 cc five percent glucose in water as a carrier solution. Two grams of magnesium chloride are added alon gwith a small amount of manganese to prevent vein sclerosis.

In the blood, it encounters two enzymes: catalase and cytochrome-C. Catalase drives the above reaction to completion immediately. That part of the hydrogen peroxide that binds with cytochrome-C, however, is not allowed to become water and singlet oxygen for a period of forty minutes. After forty minutes of being bound to cytochrome-C this enzyme begins to act like catalase and breaks down the hydrogen peroxide to water and singlet oxygen. By this time, the hydrogen peroxide/cytochrome-C complex has been spread throughout the body. In this way the benefits of hydrogen peroxide are made available to all cells.

The effect of singlet oxygen in the human body is twofold. It kills, or severely inhibits the growth of, anaerobic organisms (bacteria and viruses that use carbon dioxide for fuel and leave oxygen as a by-product). This action is immediate, on contact with the anaerobic organism. Anaerobic bacteria are pathogens, the organisms which cause disease. All viruses are anaerobic.

Aerobic bacteria (those that burn oxygen for fuel and leave carbon dioxide as a by-product - as humans do) found in the human intestine are friendly bacteria, which aid in digestion. These organisms thrive in the presence of hydrogen peroxide.

The second effect of hydrogen peroxide is that it provides singlet oxygen, which, in turn, transforms biological waste products and industrial toxins into inert substances by oxidizing them. This makes them easy to handle for the kidneys and liver. It doubles the rate of enzymatic metabolism in the mitochondria within each cell, thus enabling the body to cleanse itself of toxins and still have plenty of energy to handle the business of living from moment to moment. This increase in metabolism probably accounts for some of the antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral effects of hydrogen peroxide.

Hydrogen peroxide is a part of normal metabolism. Your body produces it constantly. There are units in certain white blood cells called "peroxisomes," which produce H2O2. These white cells then engulf bacteria which cause disease and mix them together with these peroxisomes. They both then disappear as the singlet oxygen from H2O2 destroys the bacteria or virus. This happens naturally, without any help from outside sources of hydrogen peroxide.

When an infective disease becomes obvious to the person who has the infection the hydrogen peroxide defense mechanism already has been overwhelmed by the number of viruses or bacteria involved, and the immune system is into its secondary line of defense: the tedious process of analyzing the invading organism and making antibodies, which deal specifically with that organism.

The invention of man-made antibiotics, beginning in the 1920s, was a revolution in medical science. However, as a strategy for fighting infection it is clearly second best, as the body itself demonstrates. When the body is challenged with an infection, it first turns to hydrogen peroxide. Only when this fails does it turn to its own antibody production.

Conditions which can be treated with H2O2 include those conditions which can be treated with antibiotics, but without the serious toxicity often associated with laboratory produced synthetic antibiotics. Some of these conditions are candidiasis (yeast), viral infections, influenza, the common cold, sinus infection, Epstein-Barr virus and gangrene.

Hydrogen peroxide also has been found to dissolve cholesterol and calcium deposits associated with atherosclerosis. Therefore, it is a good treatment for vascular disorders. This can result in lessening or disappearance of angina, leg pain and transient ischemic attacks to the brain, which cause dizziness. It also can help reverse some of the damage left over by a stroke, if treatment is instituted early enough.

Research in the 1960s at Baylor University showed conclusively that intra-arterial hydrogen peroxide dissolves plaque in large arteries. This makes H2O2 a wonderful complement to EDTA in the treatment of vascular disease, as EDTA has been shown to clear small vessels and create collateral circulation around large vessel blockages. This combination is called "Chelox Therapy." It also clears the lungs, in cases of emphysema, by producing oxygen bubbles in the alveoli (tiny air sacs in the lungs), literally lifting the mucus deposits up, so they can be coughed out.

Hydrogen peroxide has a remarkable clearing effect on the skin. After only a few intravenous treatments the skin takes on a translucent clarity usually seen only in children. In addition, hydrogen peroxide benefits asthma, leukemia, multiple sclerosis, degenerative spinal disc disease and high blood pressure. It is particularly effective with asthma, arthritis and back disorders. All of these illnesses have a component of toxicity from accumulated pesticides, preservatives and organic industrial pollutants. Often the clearing of these toxins is enough to allow the body to heal, or at least partially repair itself. Obviously, where there is anatomic change such as in disc disease, this anatomic change will not be altered. However, what the person with disc disease, arthritis and other such illnesses is interested in is the disappearance of pain and the return of function. This often is possible with hydrogen peroxide.

Some doctors believe AIDS and cancer can be helped with hydrogen peroxide. The theory which explains benefits enjoyed by people with these conditions is that the cancer cell and the AIDS virus both are anaerobic and do not do well when exposed to singlet oxygen supplied by the hydrogen peroxide to water and oxygen reaction.

Also quickly, notice the section on skin.

"Hydrogen peroxide has a remarkable clearing effect on the skin. After only a few intravenous treatments the skin takes on a translucent clarity usually seen only in children."

Now that is what i call intesresting to acne sufferers.

I read right up to the point where you wrote "that is a retarded statement," and read no further. Where do you get away with that? This message board is supposed to be for people to help one another by exchanging ideas and information about acne. I have better things to do than exchange insults with someone who promotes quackery and insults anyone who questions it. It is a FACT that hydrogen peroxide is cytotoxic, and it is quackery to advise people to drink it. You have cited NO reputable medical professional or institution that recommends drinking hydrogen peroxide.

You maintain that singlet oxygen is good for you because it's oxygen, and that reveals your ignorance. Singlet oxygen is a reactive oxygen species which is known to be toxic. The fact that it is oxygen does not make it benign, and saying it does is like saying chlorine gas is benign because salt contains chlorine. It just reveals your ignorance. Just because cells of the immune system use free radicals to kill pathogens is NOT a sound reason to ingest free radicals! There is no point in discussing this with you any further, because you dismissed that point I made without even addressing it.

Anyone who reads this thread, who has a modicum of good sense, can judge whether or not to drink hydrogen peroxide. If you take anti-oxidants such as vitamins C and E, they will neutralize singlet oxygen in your system, because it is a strong oxidant.

I have nothing further to discuss with you.

Steven Brown is right - Hydrogen Peroxide is toxic and should not be in high concentrations throughout the body. The decomposition of H202 to h20 and 02 is spontaneous but slow as hell. Hydrogen Peroxide is produced in the peroxisomes but is quicky decomposed to water and oxygen through enzymatic action. The body does not want hydrogen peroxide around. You should definitely not drink the stuff.

The second effect of hydrogen peroxide is that it provides singlet oxygen, which, in turn, transforms biological waste products and industrial toxins into inert substances by oxidizing them. This makes them easy to handle for the kidneys and liver. It doubles the rate of enzymatic metabolism in the mitochondria within each cell, thus enabling the body to cleanse itself of toxins and still have plenty of energy to handle the business of living from moment to moment. This increase in metabolism probably accounts for some of the antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral effects of hydrogen peroxide.

^^^ You are correct.

Try ingesting a cup of hydrogen peroxide and tell us how you feel the next morning (or have the coroner write us a note).

Only a quack would make a statement like that, without citing any scientific study to substantiate it. If you took a substance that doubled your rate of metabolism, it would kill you. For one thing, your body temperature would shoot up to something like 120 degrees Fahrenheit (49 degrees Celsius), and that would be fatal.

Great post, Oz. The oxygen will react with the bacteria in the food we eat and cause an upset stomach? No-- we get upset stomach because our stomach gets too acidic; try some milk of magnesia.

And your parents think you're crazy because you clearly are and may be poisoning yourself. I'm happy you "feal" great but your skin clearing is coincidence.

Oh my god, that's something completely irrelevant on a differant topic which you insert into thread. Der eating acidic foods cause an upset stomach, i'm referring to if you drink h202 with food, it'll kill the bacteria in the food in your gut! sheesh

Yes, it will kill the bacteria... in the same way as the HCl will. Which makes it overkill and can probably, in fact, interfere with HCl in the stomach. Bad idea.

Its been a long time since I took Micro, but Oz check out which bacteria can survive Hydrochloric acid, I'd assume there the same type ascociated with stomach ulcers, find out how they react to O2 or H2O2 (sorry I was getting lost at which one yall were saying killed bacteria) If it'll take care of those bacteria, maybe your on to somthing, otherwise I still dont see any advantage to drinking deluted H2O2.

Also, hydrogen peroxide has been around a while, its probobly been thoroughly tested on what its good for

be safe

Hey OzPower, you have me worried. I get the feeling you're drinking H2O2 in order to win an argument with me on this message board. It isn't worth it. Helping people, not winning this silly argument, is what's important to me. You won't listen to me, so listen to your parents, for God's sake.
