Welcome to this extra-long ZapTimes. I have included THREE pieces on SARS because of the flood of mis-information in the media. I believe we are being herded like sheep, just like the anthrax scare last year.
Dr. Len Horowitz has written a very insightful article on SARS as an artificial emergency, much like the anthrax scare last year:
This narrative was written immediately following my return from Total Health 2003-an alternative medical conference in Toronto, Canada, held March 27-30, 2003. I landed in Toronto the day that SARS began dominating front page headlines in every major newspaper in the country. Five consecutive days of unprecedented media blitz in Canada’s largest city over the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome left the entire population frightened and bewildered.
Having been well-trained in media health promotion and persuasion methods from my behavioral science studies at Harvard University, I concluded that something akin to a social experiment was underway. With SARS, people were being frightened beyond reason, I realized. The classic definition of phobia was being manifested on a social, if not global, scale.
Surely the SARS death rate, approximately 3%, was insufficient cause for such widespread panic. The media successfully whipped the Canadian population into a trembling mass of masked and quarantined “sheeple.” Officials were forced to direct the closing of hospitals, restaurants, schools, and workplaces with only two deaths reported at the onset of the media onslaught. Within a few days, more than a thousand healthcare workers volunteered for home quarantine because of SARS. Otherwise, they faced legal arrest and incarceration as advised by the World Health Organization. You will find many of these reports from Canada’s daily newspapers, documenting these facts, as well as incoming American press reports, in the archive files of this website.

Let’s start here: the list of SARS symptoms is indistinguishable from the symptoms of ordinary pneumonias and flu.
If you took two people—one who had been diagnosed with SARS and one who had some regular pneumonia or flu—you would not be able to eyeball the difference.
I know that people don’t want to believe this, but they also don’t want to believe that a stock they just bought is worthless junk that is heading into the toilet.
Sometimes you have to see the facts before the facts burn you.
Okay. Now, here are a few stats for Canada. The first is from the Canadian Institute for Health Information: “Overall, influenza/pneumonia is a major contributor to deaths and hospitalizations among the elderly. It is the leading cause of death from infectious disease in Canada.”
This statement was made in 2001.
Here is the second stat, from Statistics Canada: In 1996, there were 7627 deaths from pneumonia and influenza in Canada.
So we could say right now that the leading cause of death from infectious disease in Canada is SARS—because one cannot tell the difference between the symptoms of influenza, regular pneumonia, and SARS. But we would be better off saying that the clinical diagnosticians in Canada don’t know what they’re doing, can’t make a positive diagnosis of SARS, and are shifting cases of traditional flu and pneumonia over into the new SARS category.
Now, people want to counteract these subversive comments by pointing out that SARS cases are only those people who have the new coronavirus.
However, this would be a lie. The Canadian researchers have already admitted that with even the most sensitive tests, they can only find evidence of the virus in 40 percent of the SARS cases. And in those 40 percent, the amount of virus they are finding is so miniscule they don’t know how it could be causing disease at all.

Reuters reports that in Taiwan, the government is handing out cash rewards to anyone who turns in a suspected SARS case. $72 per squeal.
A Taiwanese Department of Health official said, “People who suspect their family members, close friends, or neighbors may be infected with SARS can report them to local health authorities.”
Talk about creating a climate of fear and suspicion. And they don’t need to use political ideology as the “crime.” They can sit back and say it’s just the virus and they are protecting everyone. Meanwhile, on the mainland, the Chinese government appears to be shutting down the whole city of Beijing and sealing it off. Exit from, and entrance to, Beijing is severely limited.
Another vital point on how this SARS scam works, at least in the West: we are conditioned to receive sanitized news when it comes to the subject of ongoing death from disease. We don’t hear about, and we don’t see, in the streets, people dying from disease on a regular basis. THEREFORE, WHEN WE GET SUDDEN REPORTS OF DEATHS PILING UP IN ASIA, WE AUTOMATICALLY ASSUME IT MEANS NEW DEATHS FROM NEW CAUSES.
This is completely ridiculous.
In fact, people all over the world die every day from illnesses (and from medical treatment). I have been quoting statistics in the last few days on pneumonia and influenza, stats that prove how many people, worldwide, die of these conditions—all the time. Millions per year.
These pneumonias and flu illnesses are indistinguishable from SARS. So don’t be roped in by this one.
I could have gone to China in 1997 and documented all sorts of deaths from flu and pneumonia. With enough money and enough PR backup, I could have announced a plague roaring out of China. And people would have believed it.
There is no joy in death, but there is less joy when death is re-framed and re-packaged to cripple economies and terrify populations and bring on 1984-type political clamp-downs.
Dr. Clark’s new HIV/AIDS book revision has added many new and useful tools and methods for cleaning up toxins and pathogens(bugs). One new tool is called the FOOD ZAPPICATOR (page 244). According to Dr. Clark’s research, this simple unit can destroy parasite eggs and stages, bacteria, viruses, PCB’s, asbestos, benzene and many more toxins in food and other substances.
The food zappicator is a box with a special loudspeaker in it. The correct magnetic polarity is essential. It is connected by one wire to the positive lead of a low frequency zapper like the Auto-Zap. We will be making zappicator boxes available in a month or so.
BarleyPlus – The Best Thing We Eat Every Day
Congratulations to all of you who have been using BarleyPlus for the first time! We have never had more positive comments on any product. We have now been taking it for 6 months and are feeling great. The two biggest improvements we find over any other green food are: more nutrition (no maltodextrin or other fillers), and better taste.
BarleyPlus is a new green drink (whole food concentrate), certified 100% organic and kosher. It is a live combination of 80% juice of the young barley plant, and 20% alfalfa juice. The taste beats any other green drink that we have tried. The reason we go for a whole food concentrate vs. isolated vitamins and minerals is that only whole foods have all the co-nutrients necessary for proper absorption and assimilation by the body. The difference is amazing. We feel it is twice as good as Barleygreen, at half the price!
Check the BarleyPlus page for a BarleyPlus nutritional breakdown and enzyme activity chart.
Thank you to everyone who has written in telling us of your success using the zapper and Dr. Clark’s approach. We have included some of them at the end of this newsletter.
Have YOU had a reversal of cancer or other life-threatening disease, using Dr. Clark’s approach or a combination of natural therapies? Lyn is compiling a report of some of these stories, and would love to hear from you and include your story if you have one. She has some good ones already, including a dog named Blue.
Please e-mail us if you have a story or know someone who does. Others will be encouraged!
We get hundreds of phone calls, and many people ask the same questions. Here are popular questions this month:
Q – “I have been using Beck’s unit on the wrists and there is stinging like sensations. Also, I have noted where the impulses have created small “craters” in the surface of the skin. My question is, “With the zapper, is there any sensation felt during the operation and use? And what is the ideal location on the body to perform the procedure?”
A – There is NO sensation with the Auto-Zap zapper, nor is there any skin cratering or blistering. We recommend the use of handholds (provided) or footpads made from aluminum kitchen foil to give optimal contact area and pressure while leaving
your hands free.
Q – What are footpads? A – Footpads are a pair of contact plates about 3″x 12″ made from flat sheet metal, stainless steel, brass or copper (22-28 gauge) or even aluminum kitchen foil. Connect one copper alligator clip to the end of each pad. Place folded paper towels on top of the pads, then dampen each one with about a teaspoon of warm water. Place your feet on top of the plates and hit the Start button. Foot pads work well as you use a computer, read or watch TV.
Q – Do you supply footpads?
A – We do not supply footpads with the Auto-Zap because they cost more to ship than to buy at a local sheet metal shop. Use aluminum foil to make a set in 60 seconds. They are also ideal for traveling.
NATURAL HEALTH TIP:
New homes these days come with their own built-in hazards. New paint, carpets, furniture and cupboards all have formaldehyde and other toxic chemicals right in them, And they “outgas,” or exude the toxins into the air. Here is a great tip, which comes from the book “Your Naturally Healthy Home” by Alan Berman.
Did you know that houseplants are great allies in keeping your household air clean and pure? Research has shown that certain plants are most effective all-round in counteracting off-gassed chemicals and contribute to the balanced humidity
in the home. These top ten plants are:
- Areca palm
- Reed palm
- Dwarf date palm
- Boston fern
- Janet Craig dracaena
- English ivy
- Australian Sword fern
- Peace Lily
- Rubber plant
- Weeping fig
One should allow for one plant for 10 square yards of floor space. In our terms, it would be approximately 11 plants per 1000 square feet. Or, you would need 2-3 plants in the average domestic living room of 20-25 square yards. Do NOT place the plants in a draft, as their effect on the indoor air pollution is reduced. Make sure you place them in the light or the shade, wherever the different kinds of plants do best. They don’t all have to be placed in the light.
ARTICLE OF THE WEEK:
By PAUL GLADER, Staff Reporter of THE WALL STREET JOURNAL
Unbeknownst to the vast majority of family members, after a patient dies in the emergency room of many hospitals, a senior physician draws a curtain and supervises young doctors practicing several rounds of emergency medical techniques on the deceased.
In addition, several hospitals permit young doctors to practice on patients who are nearly dead, that is, who are technically still alive, but beyond the help of even extraordinary measures.
The procedures include inserting needles into major veins, drawing body fluids and performing endotracheal intubation, a technique for opening a person’s airway. Though rarely discussed, the practices have been standard at many teaching
hospitals, and some other hospitals, since the 1970s. Furthermore, hospitals sometimes bill the nearly dead patients’ insurance company for the procedures performed for medical training.
The medical community is increasingly divided on the ethics of such practices. Two years ago, medical-student members of the American Medical Association asked the AMA’s Council on Ethical and Judicial Affairs to study the issue and develop
ethical guidelines for using newly dead patients for training purposes. As a result, the AMA adopted a non-binding policy that no training be performed on newly dead patients unless the patient or family members had given consent. Since then, several of the nation’s 1,100 teaching hospitals have stopped using newly dead patients for training or have implemented new rules regarding consent. The AMA didn’t address the practice of doing medical training on nearly dead patients.
There are no hard numbers on how many hospitals engage in these practices and the ethical policies governing such training vary widely between hospitals, at times even among departments within a single hospital. “There is no consistency
on this,” says Jessica Berg, an assistant professor of law and biomedical ethics at Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, who supports the AMA’s calls for consent.
In a survey of 96 emergency-room directors, published in Academic Emergency Medicine in June, about half the directors said they were training residents on newly dead patients in their hospitals. Only four of the respondents said they had
written policies requiring family members’ consent for performing intubations on patients, while 76% said they “almost never” ask for such consent.
Doctors who support the practice say it is the best way to learn life-saving emergency procedures. “We don’t get a magic wand,” says Kenneth Iserson, a professor of emergency medicine and director of the bioethics program at the University of
Arizona who uses newly dead ER patients to train his students. He defends teaching students on fresh corpses without consent. “We have to actually learn these procedures,” he says.
“[The AMA’s non-binding ban is] a bad position. It’s a bad policy,” says Dr. Iserson, who also is head of the ethics committee at the University of Arizona Medical Center, “If the doctors in the emergency room units don’t know how to do these procedures, these patients die,” he says.
An emergency room physician at St. Vincent Mercy Medical Center in Toledo, Ohio, Dr. Catherine A. Marco says the 14 emergency doctors there decided on an unwritten policy in the past five years that they wouldn’t perform medical training on the newly deceased without consent. Instead, she says they often use nearly dead patients to train the hospital’s 36 residents, but don’t specifically tell family members or ask for consent.
Although training procedures on nearly dead are in the medical record, families of deceased patients are sometimes unaware of medical teaching, she says. “I’m not sure it is beneficial to explain that to grieving families,” Dr. Marco says. “It would be kind of cruel to tell a grieving family we could have pronounced him dead five minutes earlier.”
The patients’ insurance companies can get billed for procedures used for training purposes in clinical settings, which can amount to hundreds of dollars, Dr. Marco says. These procedures fall into a gray area, she says: “Suppose in a resuscitation scenario we realize that the outcome is unlikely to be successful. We may perform a few more procedures that have a limited chance of benefiting the patient, but also serve a teaching function. The issue is not entirely clear since it is impossible in many cases to clearly separate the two objectives.”
The idea of using dying patients for medical training shocks other experts. “I can’t see how you would justify that ethically or legally, no matter what,” says Case Western’s Ms. Berg about the practice in general.
Representatives for insurance companies Aetna Inc., Hartford, Conn., and Philadelphia’s Cigna Corp. said the companies weren’t aware of such practices or that insurers were being billed for them. Susan Pisano, vice president of communications for the American Association of Health Plans in Washington D.C. said, “If this is a process largely hidden below the surface, it does need to be discussed in a very explicit and aboveboard way.”
Then there are religious questions about these kinds of medical training. Some cultures and religions, such as Orthodox Judaism, believe the spirit of a newly dead person could be disturbed by postmortem medical practice. “This is something they should not be doing,” says Rochelle Silberman, an administrator of the National Institute of Judaism and Medicine, in New York. “It’s not right. It is unethical.”
Dr. Paul Wolpe, a fellow at the Center of Bioethics and the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, believes the AMA policy, though not binding, will serve as a “gold standard” for hospital ethics boards. He says the recommendation “is
going to shut down an enormous number of procedures that are now being done without anyone’s consent.”
Dr. Wolpe and other critics of the practice say it is damaging for young physicians to develop habits of performing procedures without consent. Dr. Leonard Morse of the AMA council and the University of Massachusetts, thinks the answer
could be a simple consent form on admission to a teaching hospital to perform. “So many questions are asked when you enter the hospital, this would be another good one,” he says.
Dr. Iserson says if residents can’t train on newly dead patients, more emergency departments would resort to prolonging life support for nearly dead patients. In a study, published in 1999 in the New England Journal of Medicine, of 234 internal medicine residents in three training programs at hospitals affiliated with Yale University, a third of the residents said prolonging the life of patients for practice is appropriate and 16% had done so.
As an alternative, some hospitals such as Yale-New Haven Hospital in Connecticut, Stanford University Medical Center and the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center are using a combination of hands-on training on real patients and practice
on the corpses of people who donated their bodies to science, on mannequins and, in a few cases, on animals. Some believe virtual reality, fiber-optic and mannequin technology will continue to improve as an alternative.
“There has been absolutely no motivation in the medical community, up till now, to find alternative training methods or to gain consent, because there has been tolerance of doing these procedures on newly deceased patients,” says Dr. Wolpe.
“I think the patience with that method has ended.”
Here’s a cookie recipe from a school cookbook. I call them “Birdseed Cookies”. This is one of our favorites. We make
these for special occasions. Here it is as written, with my changes in brackets.
- 1 cup butter
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 3/4 cup white sugar (change white to brown)
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup white flour (change white to whole wheat)
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1 cup coconut 1 cup Rice Krispies (or Corn Flakes)
- 1 cup chocolate chips (carob chips)
- 1/2 cup sesame seeds
- 1/3 cup wheat germ or oat bran
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- 1 tsp. soda
- 1 cup oatmeal
- 1 cup raisins (or other chopped dried fruit)
- 3/4 cup sunflower seeds
- 1/3 cup flax seeds
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Mix together flour, baking soda. Beat together sugars and butter at medium speed until light and fluffy. Add eggs 1 at a time, beating well after each addition to the sugar mixture. Beat vanilla into sugar mixture. Stir flour mixture into sugar mixture. Stir in the remaining ingredients. Shape dough into 2-inch balls. Place balls 2 inches apart on prepared baking sheets Bake cookies 8-10 minutes or until golden and set.
Then you eat them up!!! YUM!!!
I’m always like doubting Thomas, I have to see to believe. I did last week when I had an allergy sinus coming on, had an awful headache. I sat down and used the zapper, and within a few minutes the headache I had had all day ceased. I then got a bath..and later that evening to be on the safe side, not to have this sinus spread too bad, I again zapped..and that evening slept very good. Today I will again get a bath, and go ZAP!..praying that it works for whatever is inside me that needs to be taken care of.
If it weren’t for the zapper, my child who has leukemia, would have fevers all the time!!! The doctors are quite baffled by the fact that our daughter who at this moment doesn’t have an immune system, doesn’t have any fevers!!!!!!!!!! If I notice that her temperature is climbing I just zap her for an hour or two and her temperature goes down!! It is soooooooo amazing to see that the zapper is truly doing its job!!!!!!!!!!!
From one very grateful mother!!!!!!!!!
P.S. She [just] had a temperature of 37.4 and I zapped her for only 9 minutes because that is all that she let me do, and her temperature dropped 1 degree!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
My zapper is also working well. I used it everyday for about 2 weeks last month to help me get over the flu. I could reallyfeel myself responding to it and don’t think I would have gotten back on my feet as soon as I did if I had not had the help of the zapper.
My first attempt at zapping was wonderful! At first I felt very energetic and euphoric; followed by feeling *unusually* sick. (Nausea, head problems/pains, etc.) … At night I slept better and deeper than I have in a very long time; and my dreams were very pleasant instead of distorted. Best night of sleep I’ve had in a long time.
NOTE: We love your testimonial letters. They encourage all of us. If you can spare some time, drop us an e-mail and let us know the state of your health since getting on the zapper.
That wraps it up for a few weeks! Thank you for allowing us into your home once again. As always, if you have any specific questions we can personally answer for you, please free to contact us.
God bless you all. Have a wonderful day!
