Labor Day weekend was a memorable time for us. We spent a few days with Dr. Hulda Clark getting caught up on her latest research. She used the Syncrometer to show us how she now does saliva testing, and also the difference in toxicity levels between the different types of bleach used to purify our water across North America and around the world.
Dr. Clark’s biggest concern these days is the water we are drinking. She says emphatically that any cancer patient that uses water that has been treated or purified with “Clorox” (laundry) bleach from the pumping stations in their city has no hope of recovery. That’s it. Simply put, Clorox bleach is a killer. It contains benzene, PCB’s, heavy metals, azo dyes and heavy metals.
She says that there are still some cities that use a bleach other than “Clorox”, and our distillers and filters are able to remove it. But she has found no distiller or filter that is actually able to remove “Clorox” completely from the water. This is a very serious concern, because the maker of Clorox is a giant company, and has a lot of pull.
The best Clorox removal method so far is to use a carbon granule filter in a water pitcher (as supplied by Self Health Resource Center, 619-409-9500), followed by thorough boiling for ten minutes to drive out remaining impurities.
But if you need to heal, Dr. Clark says, you must switch to a pure water supply, even if you have to truck in water from a safe area, or move. It is that important!
Arthur also attended the Rife Convention in Seattle on October, where he was helping video Dr. Clark’s advanced Syncrometer course. She got a wonderful reception from about 350 people in the conference, and did a good presentation. You can see some good notes on her talk at

Lyn has compiled a lot of information from Dr. Clark’s books and other useful information. This report is entitled “How to Overcome the 10 Most Common Hindrances to Regaining Your Health”. This practical guide gives you hands-on information on cleaning up your home from dangerous chemicals, Dr. Clark’s body cleanses, tips on how to stay parasite-free, and nutritional info to supercharge your body’s immune system. You can download this report at NO CHARGE from our website at Best Zapper.
UPDATE 2011: The vital information in this report has been incorporated into our comprehensive & free eBook, the Hulda Clark Action Plan. Sign up here to get a complementary copy of the Hulda Clark Action Plan with your ZapTimes subscription!
We have also added an archive of all our old ZapTimes issues. Check out our older ZapTimes articles here.
We get hundreds of phone calls, and many people ask the same questions. Here are popular questions this month:
Q. Are the kidney and liver cleanses safe if I’m zapping?
Q. Can you give me a list of ailments, detoxifying, and general health maintenance for which this machine is suitable?
A. See Dr. Hulda Clark’s book, “The Cure for All Diseases,” for a full listing. Her basic conclusion is that the zapper is an excellent general tonic and prophylactic (preventative) tool. The tiny zapper current gets the white blood cells eating parasites, bacteria and viruses even in the presence of toxins that would otherwise make the white blood cells shut down.
Q. Should I still take the herbal parasite cleanse if I have a zapper?
A. You certainly may if you wish. The black walnut tincture is good for clearing your gut quickly. With the zapper alone it takes longer. If you have a serious concern, by all means take the herbs as well.
Note from Arthur: When I got rid of cancer myself, the zapper was not around, and so I followed the basic parasite cleanse.

Medical Ghost Writing
For those of you who believe that medical journals are “scientific”, here is a real eye-opener from CBC TV’s investigative program, “Marketplace.”
Medical ghostwriting. You may not have heard of it, but you’ll probably want to know about it. It’s a world that could make your doctor prescribe the wrong drug.
For trusted guidance, articles rigorously reviewed in medical journals are the gold standard when it comes to scrutinized, scientific reports. They’re what our doctors rely on to make decisions affecting our health. But more and more, we can’t be sure who’s serving up that medical advice.
Medical ghostwriting can be as scary as it is spooky. People with scientific backgrounds – often, with Ph.D.’s – are paid to stay in the shadows and crank out favourable reports for drug companies. Then, drug companies get doctors to put their names on the studies – for money, prestige, or perks.
Marketplace tracked down ghostwriters in Vancouver, Montreal and Ottawa – one agreed to talk with us, but only if we protected their identity. Their job could vanish if their identity is revealed. We’ll call our busy ghostwriter, Blair Snitch.
Blair Snitch: I’m given an outline about what to talk about, what studies to cite. They want us to be talking about the stuff that makes the drug look good.
Erica Johnson : They don’t give you the negative studies?
Blair Snitch: There’s no discussion of certain adverse events. That’s just not brought up.
Blair Snitch is paid to write up positive reports. So bad side effects that could affect patient safety, are sometimes completely ignored.
Snitch makes over $100,000 a year as a medical ghostwriter. An article that makes its way into a prestigious medical journal – like the Lancet, British Medical Journal, New England Journal of Medicine – will earn up to $20,000. Snitch’s work is brisk and busy, but not problem free.
Erica Johnson: How much pressure is there from the drug company to write something favourable?
Blair Snitch: You’re being told what to do. And if you don’t do it, you’ve lost the job.
Snitch works for what’s called a “medical writing” company. There’s a whole industry churning out drug company bumph. It’s partly a matter of efficiency, says Snitch. “Doctors don’t have time to write those articles. The people who have their names on those articles are very busy professionals.”
Busy – and usually high-profile. The higher the profile, the greater the credibility for the article.
“What appear to be scientific articles are really infomercials of some sort,” says Dr. David Healy of the University of Wales. Healy’s no stranger to controversy: his job at the University of Toronto was suspended after he criticized the pharmaceutical industry. But he still gets invited to lecture and remembers one in particular.
“I said ‘yes’ to the meeting. To my big surprise I had an e-mail shortly afterwards. ‘In order to reduce your workload, we have had our ghostwriters produce a first draft based on your published work. I attach it here.'” Healy wasn’t comfortable with the glowing review of the drug, so he crafted his own article. The drug company wrote back and said he’d missed something key. In the end, the drug company put someone else’s name on the article.
Healy is spooked by the deception. He says it goes beyond being misleading – it can be dangerous. He’s seen a lot of articles on drugs – like anti-depressants – that don’t mention serious problems. “People and children, for instance, that have been put on these drugs, actually committing suicide. Or becoming suicidal. But the finished articles actually don’t reflect this at all.”
Blair Snitch says the public should be concerned. “Are they being prescribed a drug because it’s the best drug or because it’s the drug most favourably positioned?”
Erica Johnson: Do you have any concerns about what you’re doing?
Blair Snitch: I don’t feel ownership of the product.
Erica Johnson: But you are taking the research and delivering to the drug company something that’s favourable.
Blair Snitch: I expect that all the drug companies are doing it with all the drugs. So I figure in the end, it’ll be balancing itself out.
Healy’s not so sure. He’s seen internal drug company documents. They had lists of scientific papers written up, ready to go. All that was missing, was the name of a high profile doctor to be listed as author. Healy estimates as much as 50 per cent of the literature on drugs is ghostwritten.
Ghostwriters we talked to said they do a good job of taking complicated science and turning it into something understandable. We wanted to ask a doctor why they’d agree to sticking their name on a paper. But it’s tricky getting people to fess up.
Some doctors didn’t call back. One we reached said he “couldn’t remember who wrote the paper” his name was on. Then said the drug company “might have” written the first draft. But by the end of our conversation, he’d remembered – he’d written every word.
The world’s leading medical journals say they’re trying to ferret out who lurks behind the pen. When a study is submitted to top journals like the Canadian Medical Association Journal, The Lancet, New England Journal of Medicine, everyone who’s had anything to do with the article is listed – like a film credit.
John Hoey, the editor of the CMAJ, admits it’s a tough rule to enforce. “We have no way of checking. We barely have the resources to do what we’re doing, let alone whether so-and-so is telling us honestly what they did.”
Hoey says drug companies don’t just want positive articles, but positive research results.
But some critics say all this industry influence is a problem because ghostwriters rely on research material that’s given to them by drug companies – so it may be biased to begin with. That means even ghostwriters might not know about negative side effects and safety problems.
“I think it is clearly unethical,” said Dr. Mohit Bhindari, an orthopaedic surgeon at McMaster University. He’s just penned a report on drug company studies – one that he wrote himself. “If you have funding from an industry sponsor, you are four times more likely to include a positive, pro-industry result which favours that particular industry’s product.”
Bhindari says researchers have told him there’s pressure to come up with “good results.”
Dr. David Healy says that’s dangerous and has to change. “The only way to know whether the articles really are honest is for people, if need be, to be able to get access to the raw data.”
Blair Snitch is in a rush to go. There’s another big drug company contract to work on, with no regrets.
Blair Snitch: As long as I do my job well, it’s not up to me to decide how the drug is positioned. I’m just following the information I’m being given.
Erica Johnson: Even though you know that information is often biased?
Blair Snitch: The way I look at it, if doctors have their name on it, that’s their responsibility, not mine.
So for now, keep in mind that medical information you read may be other-worldly. Since people paid big bucks to spin research show no sign of giving up the ghost.

Hi Arthur: It has been about three weeks since receiving your zappers. I am very pleased with what I have seen so far. My son , who is 6, would have daily headaches, which I thought were due to toxins in my home since it was new. I have been working on air purification, which did not abate his headaches. I put him on your zapper and by the first day he was a little better. Each day thereafter, he just got better and better and by the 4th day NO MORE HEADACHES. He has NOT had a headache in three weeks and tells me we should have gotten the zapper sooner.
The other thing I have seen is all of my kids had swollen glands and sore throats. By the 4-5 day on the zapper, they too were gone, as was the puffiness in their faces and around their eyes, which I think may have been a sinus thing.
As for myself my face is less puffy too. I have Lyme disease and feel better as each day goes on, although I did have an increase in neurological symptoms which is a cleansing, good reaction, which lasted about 8 days, but now each day I see improvement.
I am looking forward to getting well soon. Thank you.
My Zapper is great – no colds or flu all winter.
I just want to let you know that I am doing very well. My dizziness is gone and yesterday I was walking just fine without any help. I am looking forward to going back to work soon. I truly believe that my illness is caused by viruses and parasites and the Auto-Zap is the perfect way to keep them under control. For the first time I truly have hope that I can have a normal and fulfilling life.
Thank you for all the help.
Note: We love your testimonial letters. They encourage all of us. Why not drop us a little note by e-mail and let us know how the zapper has helped you.
That wraps it up for this time! 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 contact us.
Have a wonderful day!
