ozone again

Nov 10, 2006

do u know HIV+ person undergon ozone and have a good lifestyle now? why is ozone legal in the canada,germany, and other countries in the world and the US prohibits it... the only country in the world.... seems there is a political conditions or politics in this scenario, since ozone is not patendable, drug companies in the US cannot gain profit if their drugs wont sell out, althoug ozone is not the cure, a vaccine will be.... ozone destroys viruses and enhance the immune system if the blood is rich in oxygen, we all knew that....

Response from Dr. Wohl

There are no good data that ozone helps people with HIV. One published report found no benefit of ozone ("Lack of efficacy of ozone therapy in HIV infection." Clin Microbiol Infect. 1998 Jan;4(11):667-669).

There are instances where people set up businesses to infuse oxygen into people with HIV at significant expense to the patient.

So, it is not politics, it is science - or the lack of it in this case - that has prevented ozone therapy from being used in the US.
