Asthma and lung infections on the rise in all age groups
Asthma is a chronic inflammatory disease of the airways. When not diagnosed or
properly treated, asthma can lead to a host of social and financial problems.
Hospital studies show that the common cold and related bronchial asthma and
respiratory illnesses from infection, can be rapidly cured when patients are
treated with fulvic acid. Especially pleasing to parents is the powerful and
immediate effect this therapy has on young children.
Erchuan Wang et al, Humic acid, 3 (1991)
New research by Dr. David L. Hahn of Dean Medical Center, Madison, Wisconsin,
shows that pneumonia related respiratory disease and acute bronchitis caused by
chlamydia pneumoniae appear to be the cause of most asthma. His recent studies
show that asthma patients have been found to have a high level of antibodies for
chlamydia pneumoniae, which seems to be a common denominator among asthma
sufferers. Dr. Hahn believes that chlamydia antibody detection can be an effective tool
in diagnosing asthma.
In hospital studies, profuse otherwise unstoppable bleeding of the mucous
membranes of the nose, mouth, throat, bronchial and lung areas, related to acute
respiratory and viral infections in patients with tuberculosis, heart failure,
leukemia, and other serious diseases, were successfully stopped with fulvic acid
Suchen Cao, Jiangxi Humic Acid, 3 (1993)
Extensive research of HMO studies conducted from 1967-1987 showed that
“prevalence of asthma increased steadily and significantly…in both males and females
in all age ranges.” These findings were reported in the April 1998 issue of the American
Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine. Although the data in those studies
does not go beyond 1987, the researchers found that “more recent national data
suggest that these increases are continuing.” The weight of the evidence for an
ongoing rise in asthma, they conclude, “is growing steadily.”
Hospital studies showed that serious and acute cases of chronic bronchitis were
better treated and cured with fulvic acid (96.77% cure rate) that worked
significantly better than conventional drug therapy. Symptoms of inflammation,
coughing, sputum and asthma, were also much better alleviated.
Jingrong Chen et al, jiangxi humic acid, 2 (1984)
Speaking for the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology, Dr. Gary
Rachelefsky said: “Despite the fact that we have a real understanding of the disease
and medications to treat it, we still have increased asthma.” About 7% of the children in
the US have asthma. The prevalence has increased 40% between 1982 and 1993. It is
the most common childhood disease and is the top reason for pediatric hospitalization,
accounting for up to 300,000 admissions a year. Asthma is the cause of 10-30 missed
school days per asthmatic child per year. Asthma effects over five million U.S. children
and adolescents, and accounts for 28% of all direct medical expenses totaling nearly $5
billion in spending per year.

Arthritis related autoimmune diseases including Lupus, Fibromyalgia,
and Rheumatoid Arthritis; Humic substances offer hope
An estimated 40 million Americans have some form of arthritis or other rheumatic
condition. That number is expected to climb to 59.4 million, or 18.2 percent of the
population, by the year 2020.
In a recent issue of Annals of Rheumatic Diseases, doctors found that people with
rheumatoid arthritis have lower levels of common antioxidants in their blood in the years
before the disorder is diagnosed. A new study suggests that the same may be true for
another autoimmune disease, systemic lupus erythematosus. It is not certain if the
lower level of antioxidants is a cause or the effect of the diseases, or indirectly related
to the disorders.
According to Dr. George Comstock, of the Training Center for Public Health Research
in Hagerstown, Maryland, antioxidants in the blood are possibly being used to mop up
damaging free radicals, byproducts of inflammation related to the diseases. “Or
perhaps low antioxidant status, whether because of decreased intake, absorption, or
transport, increases the potential for oxidative damage,” he wrote.
Humic extracts, especially fulvic acids, when administered both topically and
orally are proven to regulate the immune system as powerful immunomodulators,
and to work as potent antioxidants and antiinflammatory agents.
In studies with hospital patients with rheumatoid arthritis, an autoimmune
disorder, humic extract bath therapy treatment had a 92% success rate. Several
hundred similar studies have been performed in China showing that fulvic acid
and humic extracts are proven highly successful.

Rheumatoid arthritis is more prevalent in women than in men and generally strikes
between the ages of 20 to 40. It is believed to be caused by an abnormal immune
reaction in which the lining of the joints are attacked and destroyed, leading to pain,
inflammation, swelling, and eventually deformity of the joints and disability.
Approximately 1 percent of U.S. adults have definite rheumatoid arthritis, an
autoimmune disease occurs more frequently in women than in men. The prevalence of
rheumatoid arthritis is approximately 2.1 million people: 600,000 men and 1.5 million
The estimated U.S. prevalence of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis (JRA), which occurs in
children ages 16 and younger, is between 30,000 and 50,000.
For the new study, Dr. Comstock and colleagues looked at thousands of blood samples
donated in 1974, and specifically tested those from 21 people who were diagnosed with
rheumatoid arthritis 2 to 15 years after giving blood. They also identified another six
people who developed systemic lupus erythematosus 3 to 13 years after giving blood.
Lupus is also thought to be due to an abnormal immune reaction in which the body
attacks connective tissue and numerous organs. The disease is 10 times as common in
women as men, and most often occurs between ages 13 and 45. Comstock mentioned
in the article that the trend does match that of an earlier small study which suggests
that low concentrations of antioxidants may in some way be related to the development
of rheumatoid arthritis, either directly or as associates of another disease-causing
factor. “Although the number of cases is too small to allow definitive statements about
the association of serum antioxidants with systemic lupus erythematosus, it is hoped
that this report will stimulate others to see if our results can be replicated,” he wrote.
Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE or lupus) is a chronic autoimmune disease in
which the body harms its own tissues and can lead to inflammation and damage to
joints, skin, kidneys, heart, lungs, blood vessels, and the brain. Reports estimate SLE to
affect at least 239,000 Americans: 4,000 white males, 41,000 white females, 31,000
black males, and 163,000 black females.
The autoimmune disorder, Fibromyalgia, affects an estimated 3.7 million Americans
age 18 and older. Prevalence is much lower in men than in women. A chronic condition,
fibromyalgia is characterized by widespread pain, greater sensitivity to pain, sleep
disturbances, fatigue, and multiple tender points.

Cancer is second leading cause of death in the US, humic extracts
arrest cancer growth according to medical studies
According to the National Cancer Institute, about 1,228,600 new cancer cases were
expected to be diagnosed in the year 2000. Since 1990, approximately 11 million new
cancer cases have been diagnosed.
In the year 2000 about 564,800 Americans were expected to die of cancer, more than
1,500 people a day. Cancer is the second leading cause of death in the U.S., exceeded
only by heart disease.
Patients with cancer causing tumors of the esophagus had 100% success rate in
preventing tumor progression into the cancerous state when treated for two
years with a humic extract solution.
Yuan, Shenyuan; Fulvic Acid, 4 1988; in Application of Fulvic acid and its derivatives in
the fields of agriculture and medicine; First Edition: June 1993
One of every four deaths in the U.S. is from cancer. Since 1990, there have been
approximately 5 million cancer deaths. Overall annual costs for cancer run $107 billion
Breakthrough cancer research studies supported by the National Institute of Health
clearly indicate that oxygen-containing molecules known as oxidants or free-radicals,
play an important role in causing cancer, and that antioxidants or free-radical
scavengers help suppress cancer.
In a surprising new development, the study shows that cancerous cells themselves are
causing an overproduction of free-radicals. This alone can account for cancers typical
runaway cell growth.
Cancer cells have now been shown to produce oxidants that act as messenger
molecules and send signals through protein pathways, bombarding surrounding cells
uncontrollably with damaging free-radicals.
The study shows that certain super antioxidants work to obstruct the signaling protein
pathways, neutralizing the spread of cancer and can potentially prevent it in the first
place. Unique protein inhibiting antioxidants block the necessary signals that normally
allow adjacent cells to become cancerous. Studies point to antioxidants as new anticancer
treatment and prevention strategies.
Humic extracts (Fulvic acids) are natures most powerful antioxidants. Pharmacological
studies throughout the world have shown that various mechanisms within the humic
molecular structure make it both a donor and acceptor free radical scavenger and
antioxidant. Also noted are powerful superoxide dismutases (SODs) and
metalloenymes of every conceivable kind.
While all humic extracts do not always destroy cancer cells, they generally halt their
growth and spread. Sometimes tumors disappear almost immediately and
spontaneously. Humic extracts are certainly cancer preventative, and it is certain that
the higher the quality of humic extract, the better the ability to reverse and completely
Outpatient medical hospital studies on thyroid tumors, some cancerous, showed
that injections with a special humic extract was 90% successful in stopping
tumor growth and diminishing size of tumors, with 80% of patients having
He, Shenyi, et al; Humic acid in Jiangxi Province, 1 (1982)
It has been found that naturally-occurring humic acid preparations can stimulate the
production of cytokines, including interferon-gamma, interferon-alpha, interferon-beta,
and tumor necrosis factor-alpha. What this means is that a valid mechanism has been
discovered, proven, and documented, whereby humic extracts are able to work with the
body to selectively seek out and destroy cancer cells.

Cellular regeneration attributed to Fulvic acid electrolyte
Living cells are single bipolar mechanisms, meaning they have a positive and negative
composition, and work similar to batteries. Cells are made up of a positively charged acidic
central core or nucleus, which is surrounded by the negatively charged alkaline cytoplasm. The
components are separated by semi-permeable membranes. Each cell is a single structural unit
that functions as a member of the total living organism. Once a cell dies, and eventually in the
natural scheme of things, comes into contact with the appropriate soil microbes, it will ultimately
break down and turn into a humic substance.
Over 50% of hospital patients treated with humic acid for various chronic
diseases noticed that they were able to sleep more relaxed.
Bingwen Su, Jiangxi Humic Acid, 3 (1985)
Research has shown that two very important components of humic substances are
nucleic acids and amino acids, which are remnants from the nucleus, cytoplasm, and
protein building blocks of once-living cells. Nucleic and amino acids are absolutely
essential to all living things.
There are potentially thousands of individual nucleic and amino acids in humic
substances. These nucleic and amino acids are preserved intact within humic
substances, where they are believed to remain stable indefinitely. The nucleic acids
consist of negatively charged DNA from the breakdown of the nucleus of cells, and
positively charged RNA from the cytoplasm of cells, which also remain stable in humic
Of interest here, are the nucleic acids and amino acids which are major constituents of
the fulvic acid fraction of humic substances. Since fulvic acids are of low molecular
weight, and water soluble on both sides of the pH scale, they are readily absorbed
through semi-permeable membranes, and function actively in association with living
Complexed into the fulvic, nucleic, and amino acid team, are innumerable essential
minerals and rare earth elements. Fulvic acid contains literally hundreds of complex
minerals which include traces of virtually every element listed in the Periodic Table.
Together, all of these components function in unison, as fulvates (salts of fulvic acid),
making fulvic acid an extremely powerful electrolyte.
Hospital studies show that patients with normally incurable epidemic
Hemorrhagic Fever were able to be successfully treated with humic extracts,
which stopped bleeding, restored circulation, removed clots, was anti-viral, and
significantly bolstered and regulated the immune system.
Yinzhang Cui, Humic Acid, 1 (1991)
Because of its many nutritional components and electrolytic power, fulvic acid has
instant cellular revitalizing, replenishing, and nourishing characteristics unlike anything
else. Fulvic acids electrolytic value also has been shown to increase permeability of
bio-membranes, which means that it can sensitize cell membranes for better absorption
or assimilation of other things in its presence.
It is essential that the electrical potential of all cells remain balanced and “charged”. A
high quality electrolyte is essential for proper cellular function. An electrolyte is a
substance that dissolves in water or other suitable medium, that will conduct electrical
current. An electrolyte is essential to cells because in molecular processes it permits
electrons to be set loose, transferring electrical current, by allowing the flow of ions.
Fulvic acid is a polyelectrolyte which means “much electric.”
The value of an electrolyte can be shown by an experiment that was done by
researchers on a giant amoeba, which is a microscopic single cell animal. Under a
microscope the electrolytic potential of the amoeba, which is normally 20 millivolts, was
depressed to zero. The researchers then noticed astonishing changes as the amoeba
become disfunctional, the outer membrane then ruptured in several places, and internal
components began to flow out into the surrounding fluid. At that point researchers
visually concluded that the form and structure of the amoeba had disintegrated and it
was for all purposes dead. Upon increasing the electrolytic charge, the form of the
amoeba reconstructed and became active and healthy again. This same test was
repeated many times with the same results.
“The cell is immortal. It is merely the fluid in which it floats which degenerates.
Renew this fluid at intervals, give the cells what they require for nutrition and, as
far as we know, the pulsation of life may go on forever.”
–Dr. Alexis Carrel, Nobel Prize in Medicine
Although plant and animal cells have slightly different makeup, leading scientists agree
that their metabolic functions, components, and requirements are exactly the same. For
instance; in plants there are chlorophyll molecules which are the light receptors
responsible for the photosynthesis process. These chlorophyll molecules are very
similar in structure to the heme molecule of human red blood cells (hemoglobin).
Extensive hospital eye clinic studies using humic extracts showed 100% success
in curing eye diseases caused by virus, bacteria, or fungus, also healing
ulcerous wounds, relieving inflammation, and stopping hemorrhaging, without
Guofan, Tang, Jiangxi Humic Acid, 3 (1984)
The physical health of all organisms, both plant and animal, can be expressed in terms
of electrical potential. It is essential that the electrolytic potential of all organisms be
maintained at optimum levels, otherwise weakness, degenerative disease, and
eventual death will result.
Fulvic acid has been proven to be one of natures most perfect and powerful organic
polyelectrolytes. Because many of fulvic acids constituents where once involved in
photosynthesis, the fulvic retains that latent energy potential stored inside its solar
charged molecular structure, which can balance cell life on the molecular level,
providing regulated positive and negative charges as needed, acting as both a donor or
acceptor. Within the complexities of fulvic acids, the individual molecules are similar but
not identical. This variation in makeup allows a variety of possible reactions, positive or
negative, or in some cases alternating, to assist the balance.
Because of its unique polyelectrolytic properties, fulvic acid can influence the formation
or transmutation of new species of metal ions. This means fulvic acid can convert
existing minerals into new minerals.

Common Virus Shows Link To Brain Cancer In Children
Colon, penile, uterine, cervical, liver, and numerous other cancers are also
caused by viruses
February 21, 2002
A new study appearing today in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute, shows that
the JC Virus (JCV) which infects about 65% of children by age 14, likely plays a role in
the development of the most common type of malignant brain tumor found in children.
This finding is consistent with many other recent reports linking viruses to cancer.
The JC Virus is named after a patient, John Cunningham, from whom the virus was first
isolated in the 1970’s. According to the senior author of the study, Dr. Kamel Khalili, the
JC Virus “is very common,” and he went on to say that “sixty-five to 70 percent of
human populations worldwide get infected with this virus by age 14, so we all basically
have this virus in our bodies.”
Twenty specimens of brain tumors taken from children showed evidence of the JC
Virus. Dr. Khalili says that “the presence of the virus… is suggestive of a biological role
for this virus in the development of these tumors.” Khalili, who is a cancer researcher at
Philadelphias Temple University, said that earlier lab studies show that the JC Virus
causes cancer in rats, mice, and brain tumors in certain monkeys.
The JC virus comes from a viral group called Neutropic Polyomaviruses. It usually
infects the upper respiratory system by inhalation of airborne particles just like the
common cold. Polyomavirus caused respiratory infections are very common in children.
The virus causes no serious disease unless a persons immune system is weak. In
patients with very weak or destroyed immune systems (such as AIDS patients, or those
who are taking organ anti-rejection drugs), according to Dr. Khalili, the JC Virus can
cause progressive Multifocal Leukoenchephalopathy (PML), a fatal brain disease. Dr.
Khalili says that evidence suggests that JC Virus also plays a role in the development
of the most common brain cancer in children, medulloblastoma. This type of cancer is
diagnosed annually in about one out of every 200,000 children under the age of 15. It is
a very aggressive cancer that is difficult to treat and often is fatal. Dr. Khalili says that if
it can be conclusively proven that JC virus does play role in the brain cancer, then it
may be possible to develop a vaccine that could help in treating the tumor or preventing
Studies by Dr. L. Laghi and associates have shown that JC Polyoma Virus also causes
colon cancer. In other extensive research Dr. Richard C. Hunt, at the University of
South Carolina, has documented many other viruses as the cause for colon, penile,
uterine, cervical, liver, and numerous other cancers.
This information provides support for the idea that humic substances (fulvic acids) are a
little-known and important missing link throughout the food chain. Modern agricultural
practices have eliminated the humic substances from farm soil, which parallels
increases in viral plant, animal, and human viral infections. Common to rich organic soil
humus, fulvic acids have been shown to have unequalled value in defending plants,
animals, and man against viruses of all kinds, and also in significantly increasing and
balancing immunity. Of interest is also the fact that hospital studies in China showed
that children with serious respiratory infections responded exceptionally well to humic –
fulvic extracts when nothing else seemed to work.
Fibromyalgia, is a syndrome rather than a specific disease. As such there are a
complex of symptoms which may or may not be present in any particular clinical
instance of fibromyalgia. The most common symptoms, however, can all be helped by
fulvic acid complexes as fulvic acid has been shown to be effective in reducing muscle
and joint pain, improving sleep, and decreasing fatigue. Generalized muscle stiffness
should also be reduced.
Taking the liquid mineral/vitamin complex will be more effective if accompanied by the
capsules (dietary supplement). Research also has shown the following to be of great
assistance in reducing the effects of fibromyalgia:
 Light, ongoing aerobic exercise, such as a walking programme, coupled with
 A raw vegetarian diet. This diet, in one study, produced great improvement of
up to 70% reduction in symptoms in the people involved in the study over a
seven week period.
A change in diet such as this, presuming that the person is not already on this diet, and
the exercise programme would probably be best undertaken after the liquid
mineral/vitamin supplement has been taken for at least a month and has produced
some benefits. Any large change should also be performed
Fulvic acid and Humic extract topical use and bath therapies show
amazing clinical results
Fulvic acid and humic extract water solutions can safely be applied as skin treatments.
Directly applied or as bath therapies, fulvic and humic extracts are safe in amounts as
high as 10 percent weight-by-volume. Medical doctors have found that extended
saturation of the skin by direct application, or use as a bath therapy can be highly
successful in treating many external and internal conditions. Clinical studies show that
ulcerous skin problems and various skin diseases can be eliminated. Studies by a U.S.
doctor have shown that fulvic acid or humic extract bath treatments can cure the
common cold or flu in just one or two session, stopping them dead in their tracks.
Hospital patients with skin ulcers had 92.2% success rate when treated with
fulvic acid and humic extract baths.
Yuan, Shenyuan; Fulvic Acid, 4 1988; in Application of Fulvic acid and its derivatives in the fields of
agriculture and medicine; First Edition: June 1993
Medical doctors in Europe, China, and even the United States, have discovered that
clinical bath treatments using specially prepared humic and fulvic extracts have
unparalleled healing power with many serious diseases. Patients with severe
rheumatoid arthritis and other bone, joint, tendon, and muscle autoimmune disorders,
exhibit healing effects that are unrivaled. Often after a few weeks of daily bath sessions,
patients are significantly relieved of pain and inflammation, and are restored to health.
Medical test results indicate that humic extracts enhance the human immune
system, which results in the cure of viral diseases.
Jingrong Chen et al, jiangxi humic acid, 2 (1984)
Literally hundreds of well documented clinical studies exist from hospitals, medical
schools, and doctors from around the world. Internal use of fulvic acid also works well
for many of these same conditions including the various rheumatoid and autoimmune
Bath treatments, or lengthy periods of moist localized saturation, are extremely potent
therapies for many conditions. Such treatments are remarkable effective. Extensive
clinical studies support the exceptional safety of both topical and bath therapies.
Global presence of Diabetes mellitus now epidemic, human clinical
studies show Fulvic acids offer significant help
Diabetes mellitus responsible for enormous world economic burden
A December supplement to the British Diabetic Association journal, Diabetic Medicine,
warned that the prevalence of diabetes worldwide is expected to nearly double in the
next twelve years. Dr. Paul Zimmet and colleagues for the International Diabetes
Institute and the World Health Organization report that diabetes mellitus “appears to be
epidemic in many regions of the world” and will double and could even triple by the year
With fulvic acid, diabetes patients became more energetic and the tingling,
painful feeling and numbness experienced in the nerve endings disappeared or
Yuan, Shenyuan; et al; Application of Fulvic acid and its derivatives in the fields of

Related reports were quoted as saying that “The corresponding burden of
complications and premature mortality resulting from diabetes will constitute a major
public health problem for most countries.” Dr. George Alberti, Vice Chair of the British
Diabetic Association says, “In the short term, it is vital that attempts to change lifestyles
are stepped up and that investment in finding a cure is increased. In the longer term, it
is equally important that we ensure that we have the medical infrastructure in place to
deal with the problem.”
Scientists found that fulvic acids show significant success in preventing and
combating free radical damage to pancratic islet B cells, which is the widely
accepted cause for diabetes mellitus. What they discovered was that the Fulvic
acid preparation significantly increases superoxide dismutase (SOD) activity.
Their clinical studies show that fulvic acids diminish the development and
progression of diabetes, and assisted in the treatment.

The American Diabetes Association (ADA) recently concluded that “The economic
burden of diabetes mellitus in the US is enormous.” In their February 1998 issue of
Diabetes Care, the ADA estimated that total direct and indirect costs reached $98
billion in 1997, which is now about 8% of all healthcare costs. The ADA wrote in their
report that the prevalence of diagnosed diabetes in the US is now about 3% of the
population. This relates to $10,071 per capita in medical expenses for diabetics
compared with $2,669 for non-diabetics. According to Dr. Richard Kahn and the
Alexandria, Virginia, based ADA, any advances that can “delay the onset or slow the
progression of diabetes” are needed to “mitigate the associated clinical and cost
Diabetes mellitus stems from dietary deficiency of protective humic substances,
especially fulvic acids
Most medical doctors and diabetes associations do not know that scientists in less
conspicuous parts of the world are making significant inroads into the treatment and
prevention of diabetes mellitus with fulvic acid humic extracts and herbs. In fact, Fulvica
BioScience’s studies have identified a missing dietary link as likely a major cause for
the disease. However, the valuable research may be entirely overlooked because the
solution does not necessarily have the huge profit potential that is standard to the
For centuries people living in isolated villages in the Himalayas and adjoining regions
have used preparations made from a rare fulvic acid containing humic substance
known as Shilajit, to prevent and combat problems with diabetes. Diabetes is quite
uncommon in the isolated mountain villages, yet a brisk trade in these rare fulvic acid
containing preparations has expanded in recent years to the traditional doctors in
Due to the historical and recent expanding success of the diabetes treatments in the
Himalayan region, medical researchers have taken a more serious interest in
determining if the claims have scientific merit. Dr. Salil K. Bhattacharya and scientists
from the Neuropharmacology Laboratory, Department of Pharmacology, Institute of
Medial Sciences, at Banaras Hindu University in India, undertook extensive clinical
studies on the subject. What they proved was that it was the fulvic acid fraction in
Shilajit, and other closely associated humic compounds, that were responsible for the
anti-diabetic activity and long reputed historical success of that preparation.
Dr. Bhattacharya recognized that the fulvic acids showed significant success in
preventing and combating free radical damage to pancratic islet B cells, which is the
widely accepted cause for diabetes mellitus. What he discovered was that the fulvic
acid significantly increases superoxide dismutase (SOD) activity. Dr. Bhattacharyas
clinical studies showed that fulvic acids diminished the development and progression of
diabetes, and assisted in the treatment.
Studies going on in other countries confirm the work of Dr. Bhattacharya regarding
fulvic acid SOD activity and effectiveness of diabetes. Studies in China take the
research even further.
Extensive human clinical studies carried out in various medical schools and hospitals in
China have shown significant success in treatment of diabetes patients. Studies show
that patients become more energetic. The tingling, painful feeling and numbness
experienced in the nerve endings disappear or are reduced. In China, the
pharmaceutical use of fulvic acids have now been approved for both internal and
external use, because they have shown that they are both safe and effective.

Humic substances are nature’s most powerful antiviral
New studies continue to show virus – cancer connection
The relationship of viruses to cancer is not too surprising, considering the mounting
evidence that shows that there is a missing link in our food chain that is allowing viruses
to run rampant in their attack on humans, animals, and even our food crops. What may
surprise you most is that drug companies have sponsored extensive secret studies for
the purpose of profiting from this dire situation, when in fact inexpensive and effective
natural solutions exist. This entire website documents the relationships.
Of immense interest is the fact that medical hospital studies show that difficult viral
respiratory illnesses common in children are readily resolved with fulvic acid dietary
supplementation. Fulvic acid is a humic extract common to rich organic humus soil and
also certain ancient plant deposits. Many medical studies show that humic substances,
especially fulvic acids, have the power to protect against cancer AND the related
cancer causing viruses. Studies often show reversal of deadly cancers and tumors

Humic and Fulvic soil substances hold Tuberculosis solutions
An obscure and highly technical U.S. Government report shows that there is a direct
correlation between natural soil substances (humus, humic, fulvic) and the absence of
tuberculosis in humans. This report and many other studies reveal that certain humic
extracts, particularly fulvic acids, contain a magnificently powerful spectrum of natural
micronutrients, phytochemicals, anti-viral and antibiotic-like agents that directly inhibit
and destroy disease pathogens, while fortifying and regulating the immune system,
increasing overall health. In the report, these extracts, although undetermined at that
time, are described as being as potent as penicillin in equally small amounts.
“The present form of agriculture, to which our biological agriculture is opposed,
leads to the ruin of soil and health and will eventually bring about the death of
humanity.” –Professor Louis Kervran
Professor Louis Kervran was Minister of Health for France and a member of the New
York Academy of Sciences
This report, a U.S. Govt. Information Circular from the U.S. Dept. of Interior, Bureau of
Mines, shows a direct correlation between exposure of coal miners to humic
substances and their complete absence of tuberculosis. Ancient plant deposits that
were buried but never turned into true coal still remain organic in form, and are
commonly referred to as humic, humates, fulvates, lignite and leonardite, and are found
in close proximity above coal. These humic compounds are identical to the black and
brown humus found in the very richest soils.
This government report discusses the fact that these same anti-pathogenic substances
have also been traced by biochemists into many plant species, and function the same
as protective mechanisms found in various plant parts, especially the coats of seeds.
Also of interest is the fact that scientists insist that the activity and function of humic
matter in fresh humus soil works identically to that found in ancient humic deposits,
although the ancient deposits contain substances that are much more highly
Many scientists have shown that these various anti-pathogenic substances are
produced by beneficial microbes common to rich humus soils. The microbes
concentrate and convert higher plant matter forming soluble compounds (fulvic acids)
that are readily transported to a new plants roots and on into the entire plant, often
accumulating in specific areas of the plant.
The government report discusses the curious fact that a high concentration of still-living
microbes were discovered to be dispersed throughout the interior of all raw humic
substances, with the ratios, types, and species consistent with the various types of
humates. Many of the strains of microbes were identified to be from the very same
families responsible for some of the pharmaceutical industrys most well known, latest,
and highly respected drugs and antibiotics, which interestingly are all found in healthy
Although the various studies in the government report showed that scientists knew and
identified the different species and types of microbes and were familiar with the
antibiotic substances they produce, the powerful anti-pathogenic substances they were
successful in isolating from humates could not themselves be identified. The
speculation is that these substances encompass natures entire spectrum of known and
yet to be discovered antibiotics.
The extracts isolated from humic substance had an activity comparable to or better than
that of penicillin at similar or even higher dilution rates. The various studies showed that
besides preventing tuberculosis among miners, the unique and varied disease fighting
substances were found to have activity against many other human disease pathogens,
and activity against plant-pathogenic bacteria as well.
Recent scientific research is gradually unraveling the mystery, and is showing that one
of the reasons why individual humic related antibiotic substances are hard to identify is
because such an immense and diverse spectrum exists, which have all become
combined together molecularly, and also modified and inter-linked with one another.
One area of immense interest that has been identified is the quinoid groups, consisting
of quinonoids, quinolones, quinones, etc. Pharmacologists are finding that these
substances are some of the most powerful antibiotics ever, and also that some of them
fortify and increase overall health by increasing resistance to disease. The quinoid
groups are very common to high quality humic extracts, especially certain fulvic acids.

Tuberculosis is declared a global epidemic with incurable strains
spreading throughout the U.S.
The World Health Organization has declared tuberculosis a global emergency and
epidemic. One-third of the world population is now infected with tuberculosis. More
people died worldwide last year from tuberculosis than in any other year in history. This
year over 8 million people will contract tuberculosis, which kills 3 million people
annually. Multi-drug-resistant strains of tuberculosis have now been identified in 42
states in the U.S. Large numbers of people are now infected without knowing it, and
any of them could eventually develop the disease. Incurable drug-resistant strains are
easily passed on, and currently 50 million people are at serious risk worldwide.
Drug resistant Tuberculosis found in 42 states of the USA
Reports from various Centers for Disease Control show that drug-resistant tuberculosis
is showing up across the U.S., now in 42 states, according to William Bishai, M.D.,
Ph.D., a Johns Hopkins immunologist. Various CDCs report that this is a big increase
over past years.
Dr. Lee Reichman, executive director of the New Jersey Medical School National
Tuberculosis Center in Newark, says that the states with the most significant increases
are not the 14 states where this epidemic started 10 years ago. It is not the states we
would expect, he said, which would normally include New York, New Jersey, Texas and
California. He said it is actually the Southern and Midwest states which are reporting
“there’s a lot of people out there in 42 states infected”
Dr. Lee Reichman, National Tuberculosis Center
“The hidden thing there, is when you are looking at multi-drug-resistance (MDR), you
are looking at actual cases of tuberculosis – but only 10% of people ever infected get to
be a case,” said Dr. Reichman, “So that means theres a lot of people out there in 42
