In response to Jeffrey Johns,

My interest in projects such as yours stems from a general desire
to understand the process of development of cancers and to seek
measures to cure and prevent, though I am not a researcher or
scientist. I should like to call your attention to a proposal that
I have circulated on the internet, and to which I have had very
little response as yet. In the proposal, which I will append to
this message, I seek to interest competent researchers in an
investigation of the proposition that cancers are indeed viral in
origin, but that the process of "infection" may be much more
complicated than the introduction of the virus from outside the
organism. In other words, the notion to be investigated is that
pathogenic agents may develop within the organism itself.

I begin with a lengthy quote from the 1946 self-published
monograph by O.C. Gruner, former pathologist to the Royal Victoria
Hospital and research fellow at McGill University in Montreal. The
monograph is entitled An Interpretation of Cancer. I think that Dr.
Gruner's comments are especially germane to the research you are
conducting, and offer a fresh viewpoint on the problem. 

Begin Quote:
Stage 3. The Stage of Malignancy

29.--The growth which has formed along the lines indicated is not 
necessarily "malignant", whatever its microscopic structure. We 
know that "lumps" may occur for a long time in the breast, for 
instance, and then start growing. We know that a "villous 
growth" in the bladder may remain innocent for a long time, and 
then start "infiltrating"; that a warty growth in the larynx 
may show no sign of "malignancy" for a long period of time. 
This means that malignancy is superadded. How? By the 
development of a virus in it. This virus can be formed de novo 
in the cancer cells (in which case it would be called a 
ferment, or "enzyme") or it may be introduced from 
without--presumably from another person (directly or 
indirectly, like malaria). In both cases, secondary deposits 
begin to appear and we must ascribe this to the presence of the 
virus, rather than to cancer cells. (See section 68).

On this view, the cancerous growth is the place where the virus 
is incubated. Local lymph-stasis gives the necessary time for 
the agent to establish itself. Then, liberated from the cells 
into the intercellular fluids, the "germ" enters the lymphatic 
roots and finally spread through the body (Handley). Undue 
surgical manipulation both before and during an operation 
facilitates this liberation of the virus; and furthermore, as 
Percy pointed out, as long as surgical technique does not 
include adequate post-operative drainage through an open wound, 
metastasis formation is inevitable.

The various organisms ("germs") which can be found in cancer 
tissues and in the blood and excreta--for the most part 
dismissed as unimportant "contaminants" or "concomitants"--are 
associated with necrotic changes and putrefactive break-down in 
the tumour. To those who recognize pleomorphism, such organisms 
are later developments, and there is nothing incongruous in the 
fact of their being unable to start cancerous development 
either in the same patient or in other persons, or in 
exprimental animals. Rappin's "microbe de sortie" is apparently 
non-pathogenic simply because the effective phase is 
ultra-microscopic or intracellular, especially in the spleen; 
it is the virus form which is significant for the spread of 
cancer (see 23, iii, and v; 68 and 73).

To repeat, various very definite and clean-cut factors 
(nutritional errors, intoxications, past infections), give rise 
to flocculations in the intercellular spaces, and the vis 
medicatrix naturae accounts for the local tumour growth. If the 
conditions are not rectified, virus development supervenes. The 
tumour now manifests the well-known characteristics of 
malignancy. (Sections 57, 62, 68, 72 justify this view, so 
divergent from academic teaching.)

30.--The practical importance of this interpretation of the 
cancerous process is easily perceived. First, the public should 
be warned of the contributory factors (section 23) so that they 
can at least take some precautions. When stage 2 is reached, 
the physician in his turn should at once act similarly, for, 
despite all the propaganda of the Societies for the Control of 
Cancer, surgical and even radiological measures are never 
instituted immediately (i.e. the same day) and every hour means 
more and more progress of the disease. Secondly, a patient in 
the third stage is not only approaching the end of life, but is 
a source of dissemination--despite official insistence to the 
contrary. The time between "infection" and appearance of a 
growth is so long (the best analogy being provided by leprosy) 
that few will associate the two.

Yet, on the basis of this thesis, the whole disease would stop 
if the specific "pathogen" could be "resolved" (that is, first 
made soluble, then completely cleared out through the normal 
emunctories). The virus could not survive.
End Quote.

It is further evident from Dr. Gruners remarks that any means that
can prevent the emergence of pathogenic viral forms within the
organism would be an effective defense against cancers, while a
cure would be provided if the virus could be destroyed during the
process of infection. In the former, live blood analysis under
dark field microscopy could be a significant factor, while the
frequency instrument developed by Rife has already been proven an
effective means of destroying cancer-causing viruses, and could
likely also be effective against HIV.

I close with a repeat of the proposal made earlier.

Aims: This is a proposal for parallel lab research to identify 
minute particles in the plasma of the blood, which earlier 
researchers have associated with the onset of malignancies. 
Collaborators are sought in the hope that they may attempt to 
reproduce these results.

Prerequisites: The preliminary analysis requires the following 
setup: A good quality light microscope with 100 watt halogen 
light source, 100x objective with diaphragm, and a Naessens-type or 
other substage condenser suitable for high magnification dark 
field work, i.e. 1000+ X).

Beale, in "The Microscope in Medicine" (1878) notes: "If we examine
blood with the highest powers, not only do we meet with extremely
minute corpuscules, but many of these are so transparent that they
could not have been seen at all under lower power." (p. 256).

These particles are the microzymes of Antoine Bechamp (1860s), 
the protits of Guenther Enderlein (1925), and the somatids of 
Gaston Naessens (1980).  Their developmental forms (assuming as 
did Bechamp, Enderlein, Gruner, Rife, Naessens and others, that 
they are pleomorphic) include the pathogenic microbes that 
constitute the viral, bacterial and fungal etiological forms of 
cancers. A viral origin of cancers was discussed by Barnard et 
al. in the Lancet (July 18, 1925, as reported in Scientific 
American, October 1925). Rife and collaborators published some 
of their findings in Science and in the journal of California 
and Western Medicine, with reports in the Franklin Institute 
and Smithsonian magazines. Gruner in CMAJ and a series of 
monographs. Enderlein in articles in German scientific journals 
during and after the first world war and in a book which 
appeared in 1925. The first chapters of Bechamp's book "The 
Third Element of the Blood" can be obtained from the Sumeria 
WWW site.

Blood samples can be obtained readily by pricking the meaty
portion of the right middle digit (after swabbing with alcohol) and
touching gently to a slide. Do not contact the finger, only the
bead of blood. Apply coverslip to slide and place under 
microscope. No further preparation need be made. Blood of 
subjects suffering malignancies especially will show a variety of 
phenomena, including spores, double spores, bacteria, asci, 
yeast and fungus, as well as inclusions in red cells and 
sometimes in white cells, as well as budding of bacteria from 
red cells. In healthy subjects, the plasma should show large 
quantities of motile particles of 0.02 micron diameter, the 

Research results can be shared via this thread.

Please indicate your interest in participating in this 

Thank you.
