From The Effects Of
Living In Our Polluted Environment
You sense it, even if you don't have the exact figures. We live in an increasingly chemicalized environment. Among the 20,000 pages I have published on my 19 web sites there are literally thousands of pages about heart disease and cancer -- the two diseases that account for far more than 50% of all death in our society. I have established that the cause of both these diseases is the same factor -- the activity of free radicals in our bodies. This concept was not original with me, and is understood by many thousands of honest doctors and scientists.
Free radicals, in turn, are greatly increased in number and activity by hitting tiny pieces of toxic metals in your body. Getting rid of those toxic metals leads to a reduction of free radical activity and this, in turn, allows the arteries to return to a previous state of health.
Urgent Note as of August 2005: Both Karl Loren and Jean Ross have completed their personal journey of cleansing on this Hubbard Detoxification program. Click HERE to read about that journey.
Unfortunately, the massive drug industry cannot make any money selling a product that would handle this problem -- drugs will not remove those metals. My own approach to removing the toxic metals in your body is called "oral chelation therapy." The chelation therapy I advocate in my thousands of pages makes no claims for improving any mental or spiritual aspect of the person through a "detoxification program." My approach to detoxification is entirely different from the one presented on this page. I conclude that the one on this page is more important and promises to do more for humanity than "merely" reducing the incidence of heart disease and cancer.
In those three simple paragraphs above are the core of data which, when accepted and applied. would literally change the face of the planet -- saving literally millions from unnecessary death and trillions of dollars in unnecessary and useless medical drugs and procedures.
As terrible as the problem of toxic metals in our bodies may be, there is yet a larger problem of toxicity. Toxic metals cause heart disease and cancer -- both deadly. However, these are NOT diseases that affect the personality or mind, particularly. Man fights back against the ravages of heart disease, but man loses his WILL to fight back in the face of the newly emerging "hopeless diseases" and chemical pollution. Some people even seek to swallow these pollutants, foolishly thinking of them as cures!
One tiny, tiny amount of some chemical, such as LSD, for instance, can cause a drugged condition. This is well known. As little as one one-millionth of an ounce of LSD can cause a person to be so mentally fogged that he cannot walk, talk or function in any normal fashion. That has been well known for decades. What has NOT been known, until THIS Hubbard Detoxification program was developed, was that this tiny amount of LSD could get stored in the fatty tissues of the body and then, years later, "leak out" causing the person to AGAIN appear to be in a drugged condition.
This is a VERY different problem from heart disease!
There is a very thorough report on this starting on this page BELOW.
When a human body re-experiences one of these chemical pollutants, even decades after he first took them into his body, he can become so disoriented, or "stoned" that he cannot drive, or even hold a job. It is clear that he would be a poor student and a bad risk in any job requiring mental concentration. We certainly don't want our airplane pilots flying with tiny amounts of these chemicals in their bodies -- waiting for some chance leakage!
Consider, for a moment, the date-rape drug called Ecstasy. There are still some number of people who promote its use -- whether it is legal or not is not an issue with them.
By Dr. Karl Jansen
Ecstasy was initially perceived as a drug with few adverse effects, as amphetamine had been until the mid-1960's. As with amphetamine, however, widespread use resulted in reports of confusion, anxiety, panic attacks, depression, sleeping difficulties, depersonalisation, derealisation, hallucinations, flashbacks, paranoia, psychosis, tolerance and dependency syndromes, and subsequent addiction to sedatives.
However, many of these reports are based on single case studies or short, uncontrolled series, in which no evidence is provided that the pill taken was in fact ecstasy, that other drug use was not significant and that urine samples were free of other drugs and their metabolites, that the condition would not have occurred by chance, that the person was not predisposed to the condition and other factors. (source)
We do NOT have, in society today, lots of people advocating that you "experience" a heart attack because it is good for you. We also do NOT have people advocating that you swallow toxic metal so that you can increase your free radical activity, have more cancer and die that way. These toxins, these toxic metals, do not produce the type of toxicity that environmental pollutants and street drugs do. However, we DO have many people encouraging others to take drugs that are toxic -- whether street or medical drugs. In addition to these pollutants, we breathe in, or swallow many, many more.
The chemical pollutants that have proliferated, including street drugs, include many that are "oil soluble" rather than water soluble. Alcohol is a water soluble drug -- it washes out of the body in just a day or two. Surely it causes damage to the body, but at least the alcohol does NOT get stored in the body to leak out years later. However, many of the chemical pollutants ARE oil soluble -- and they STORE in the fatty tissues.
The very concept that some substances are dissolved by water and others by oil is not new on the technical scene, but neither is it well understood by many people. It is an important further factor in the detoxification of the human body that substances can be stored in fatty tissues -- these substances being the ones that are dissolved by oil, rather than water. Finally, it is yet another, and further, datum that some oil-based substances are stored in the body (in the fatty tissues) but are then USED UP, even though stored in fatty tissues. Thus, for instance, Vitamin A is one that stores in the fatty tissues, and is then withdrawn out of those tissues as the body needs vitamin A. OTHER substances, such as DDT or PCBs, are also stored in the fatty tissues, but the body has no use for these substances and they are NEVER withdrawn from these fatty tissues for any valid use within the body. These harmful chemicals (DDT, PCBs) DO leak out of fatty tissues (during times of sweating, for instance), but when that happens there is no beneficial use for them in the body -- and they do nothing more than cause harm after they have leaked out. Click here for more on this point.
The body burden of toxic contaminants is coming more and more into the main stream of news:
At press conferences held in San Francisco and Washington, D.C., last week, researchers revealed these shocking results: On average, each person had 50 or more chemicals linked to cancer in humans and lab animals, considered toxic to the brain and nervous system or known to interfere with the hormone and reproductive systems. (The Environmental Working Group's Web site www.ewg.org/reports/bodyburden/ (or click here) features biographies and toxic profiles for each person as well as the kind of products that contain such chemicals.) (source)
These pollutants have been well publicized as dangerous, but the danger of long-term storage in the body has not been well publicized. These pollutants include pesticides, preservatives, herbicides, many medical drugs and certainly most street drugs. The air we breathe is full of some! The food we eat is likewise polluted in many cases!
DDT was finally banned in 1972, but the damage it did was not recognized for years. Here is a reference:
The chemical stability of DDT and its fat solubility compounded the problem. DDT is not metabolized very rapidly by animals; instead, it is deposited and stored in the fatty tissues. The biological half-life of DDT is about eight years; that is, it takes about eight years for an animal to metabolize half of the amount it assimilates. If ingestion continues at a steady rate, DDT builds up within the animal over time. (Source)
At present, U.S. law does little to control hazardous pesticide exports. Products considered too harmful for domestic use may be exported, as well as products that have not been registered by EPA.* In addition, the EPA has ruled that banned pesticides may be imported into the United States to be formulated or repackaged for export. (Source)
Something called PCB (polychlorinated biphenyl) still gets attention, although now banned in the US.
PCBs are mixtures of synthetic organic chemicals with the same basic chemical structure and
similar physical properties ranging from oily liquids to waxy solids. Due to their non-flammability, chemical stability, high boiling point and electrical insulating properties, PCBs were used in hundreds of industrial and commercial applications including electrical, heat transfer, and hydraulic equipment; as plasticizers in paints, plastics and rubber products; in pigments, dyes and carbonless copy paper and many other applications. More than 1.5 billion pounds of PCBs were manufactured in the United States prior to cessation of production in 1977. (source)
PCBs have been demonstrated to cause a variety of adverse health effects. PCBs have been shown to cause cancer in animals. PCBs have also been shown to cause a number of serious non-cancer health effects in animals, including effects on the immune system, reproductive system, nervous system, endocrine system and other health effects. Studies in humans provide supportive evidence for potential carcinogenic and non-carcinogenic effects of PCBs. The different health effects of PCBs may be interrelated, as alterations in one system may have significant implications for the other systems of the body. (source)
PCBs are NOT a problem that is going away!
COLLEGE STATION, Texas, February 19, 1999 (ENS) - A study of bottlenose dolphins that stranded and died in Texas’ Matagorda Bay has found toxic levels of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) in their tissues. Scientists wondering what effects these pollutants might have on dolphins and people living in the area. (source)
There are many other types of toxins that store in the fatty tissues. Click here for a description of several of them. A few are excerpted below:
Some endocrine disrupting chemicals are persistent in the environment and bioaccumulate; they accumulate in the fatty tissue of organisms and increase in concentration as they move up through the food web. Because of their persistence and mobility, they accumulate in and harm species far from their original source. (source)
POPs [persistent organic pollutants] accumulate exponentially in fatty tissue as they move up the food chain, such that concentrations can be 70,000 times the background levels in a top predator. (Source)
POPs are found in everything from paint to pesticides and remain in the environment for decades without breaking down. They are spread by winds and oceans, and have been found everywhere from Antarctica to remote areas of Canada. They accumulate in fatty tissue and have been blamed for disease and birth defects in humans and animals. (source)
Second, the toxics bioaccumulate in the fatty tissue of animals, and are difficult or impossible to metabolize or excrete. Even minute amounts may have a major effect on wildlife as the toxics build up to a dangerous level over the lifetime of the animal. Bioaccumulating in the food chain occurs when, for example, plankton which has absorbed toxic chemicals from the water is eaten by fish, which, after storing the toxics in fatty tissues, are then eaten by birds. Because the birds are at the top of this food chain, they may over time accumulate levels of toxics which are thousands of times higher than those in their prey, which themselves were thousands of times higher than those in the plankton. (source)
Many contaminants such as dioxins and PCBs have an affinity for fatty tissue. During pregnancy, women mobilize their amassed stores of body fat to provide nourishment for their growing babies; the contaminants in the fat are then passed to their children. Nursing mothers also transfer a good portion of their lifetime accumulation of chemicals to their babies. (source)
The idea that a nursing mother is passing onto her precious baby the accumulated toxins she has had stored in HER fatty tissues -- it gives you reason to pause!
A post-mortem examination found the birds had been poisoned with the highly toxic insecticide Carbofuran. (source)
These toxins are very unlike the toxic metals that cause heart disease. Toxic metals do not change the personality. However, these chemical pollutants seem to produce what could be called a "chemical personality." These toxins can actually change your personality from whatever it is, naturally, to one of being more hostile toward others -- yet this hostility usually does not show in the outward appearance. Another factor of this chemical personality is dishonesty and a loss of morality.
The person's hostility is hidden and covert. From this personality change you can trace the increase in crime, divorce, poor schooling and the whole gamut of social turmoil we can now see so plainly -- if not see so plainly its origin in chemical pollutants. It is fruitless to try to teach a child who is chemically polluted. Child delinquency can easily be traced back to chemically-polluted parents, friends and the child himself.
It is not unlikely that sexual perversions and promiscuity have their bases in the chemical residues which so flood our bodies.
We live in a polluted society -- and we reap the bitter harvest of that pollution! We can rail against the polluters, but look in the mirror and see who it is that chooses them? Eventually the polluters will be educated into more healthy practices (or put in jail), but in the meantime there is NO reason why YOU should suffer from the chemical pollution of YOUR body.
Further down on this page, and on two additional pages, is material from research reports and conferences about the Hubbard Detoxification Program. Here is a quote from that material:
At least 400 foreign compounds have been identified in human tissues. The National Human Adipose Tissue Survey (NHATS), a program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency analyzes adipose (fat) tissues in cadavers from around the country. According to NHATS, 100 percent of Americans have xylene, styrene and other known carcinogens in their fat. (source)
In addition to all the chemical pollutants I've mentioned, there is toxicity from radiation. We hardly think of that problem unless we live near an atomic energy plant. But radiation is all around us -- from many sources. It, too, leaves a toxic residue in the body -- and can be removed with the Hubbard Detoxification program.
It is fine if you want to campaign against the polluters, but you owe that very campaign the logic of getting your OWN body cleared up from these pollutants. If you are a parent, you owe your CHILD a clean and cleared parent.
These chemical toxins are NOT removed with my oral chelation therapy. Until the Hubbard Detoxification program was developed no one had even yet recognized that these oil soluble toxins had such long-term dangers, not only for the individual, but for the groups in which these people lived and worked. When and as you look for "detoxification programs" on the internet you'll find gobs of them, with practically none of them acknowledging the vital central significance of toxins being stored in fatty tissues. Until you recognize that fact of life, you can't develop a procedure for removing THOSE toxins from THAT location.
If you don't remove those toxins from the fatty tissue, they remain there as if locked up in jail for decades -- the rest of your life.
During middle age your body has all the more difficulty in getting rid of these chemical pollutants -- although with the proper procedure you can clean them out.
Even though they don't get CLEANED out by any natural body process, small amounts of them do leak out, causing all sorts of health and other problems. Not too long ago only vitamins, such as Vitamin A, E and D were considered to be stored in fatty tissue. But, they would be "used up" from that storage place. When other toxic chemicals are stored in the fatty tissue, they do NOT get USED in any beneficial way. Click here for a quick review of the concept of oil or fat soluble substances.
You can click here to take the TOXICITY TEST.
Man has not understood how the broad range of chemical pollutants cause such a wide variety of diseases and lowering of emotional tone and intelligence.
It is your AWARENESS that is attacked by these chemical pollutants -- not your heart or liver. When your awareness goes down, you are much more likely to become a criminal, and more prone to accept false information. You are in some form of a hypnotic state -- ready for anyone to command your actions. It is not even a puzzle that some people SEEK this state of dullness as an escape from the turmoil in the rest of society. So, the chemical personality feeds upon itself -- encouraging others to slide down this dwindling spiral of awareness.
Thus these environmental and other chemicals have a broad effect on groups, rather than just individuals. They are bad enough for the individuals, of course, but when a whole age-group, or strata, have these chemical problems, that whole age group may well have become lost to the future of our society.
Neither has man found a way to remove these harmful chemical residues from our bodies -- thus as we age, even into successive generations, our bodies are increasingly contaminated with toxic substances. As bad as heart disease and cancer may seem, we have a new type of disease in our society -- a sick culture, declining morality, poor schools, terrorism -- ultimately these all have some roots in the lowered awareness of individuals -- awareness lowered by chemical pollutants that dull our minds and deaden the spirit!
The Hubbard Detoxification program has found acceptance at high levels:
Occupational exposures are costly, involving production losses as well as treatment and compensation. Detoxification offers employers a means to prevent the build up of toxins or suspected toxins in the bodies of their workers. A number of independent studies have found the Hubbard detoxification program effective in addressing occupational exposures. Court rulings, including a review by the Supreme Court of the State of California, have established it as a compensable form of treatment under Worker’s Compensation law. (source)
As wonderful as you know I would think my own metal detoxification formula might be, I know there is an even more powerful and effective detoxification program. It happens to be one that I, personally, have gone through. So, I write about it from first-hand experience. My lovely wife, Jean Ross, has also gone through the detoxification program described below and on other linked pages.
Each person will experience his or her own toxins to be cleaned out. My wife, Jean, had had an auto accident many years before she did this program -- she had to wear a neck brace for many weeks, and had to get many X-Rays of her neck. There is such a thing as "radiation poisoning" but you might not even know you have it. She had it, but didn't realize it. During her detox program she had radiation poisoning being expelled from her body -- it was very dramatic, but it left her very clear and clean.
I, Karl Loren, have not only gone through this detoxification program myself, but even worked for more than one year as a volunteer staff member of a group that is now delivering this detoxification program in literally hundreds of cities and countries around the world. I had never taken any street drugs in my life. I had taken very few medical drugs. But, I had spent some years running my own janitorial business. During my years as a janitor I would often strip the wax off floors with ammonia and stripper. I should have used rubber gloves, but it was too much trouble. During MY detoxification program I had many days when my body reeked of ammonia -- that chemical had stored in my body and was now coming out. There was also a period when I had Malaria -- living in Africa. I took the usual Malaria drugs -- quinine -- and had chills and shakes. I re-experienced those, although much more lightly, during my Detox experience. My IQ had been already high, in college, when it measured 131 on a standard IQ test. After I finished the Detox program, on the same test, my IQ had increased to 151. I could tell that things were more clear and it was much easier for me to study and learn.
I have been pleased to introduce this detox program to you -- and to urge you to purchase the Book that describes it in great detail -- the Book is Clear Body, Clear Mind, by L. Ron Hubbard. I have the book for sale at the standard price of $14.95 (paper trade) -- just visit our shopping cart -- or you can click here for that page. You can also find this Book in most bookstores, or buy it at the official web site for the Book -- HERE.
Now, let me give you some of the technical background for this detoxification program.

Human Detoxification—An Overview
Continuation of material from this Conference
Conference Chairman: David E. Root, M.D., M.P.H.
Welcome to the International Conference on Human Detoxification.
A theme that will no doubt emerge throughout the next two days is that we live in a chemically-oriented society. This is not a new theme. In fact, it is the theme for dozens of conferences on the state of the environment and the pollution that we all face. But this conference is unique. It is significantly different for the simple reason that we are focusing on something that can be done to help people survive better in their environments.
That is the common denominator that brings us together today.
When I graduated from medical school in 1962, the general perspective on our environment was radically different than today. There was no Environmental Protection Agency. There was really no environmental movement. In fact, I recall news images of children frolicking amidst a strange "fog" blown from special crop dusting trucks. That "fog" enveloping them was DDT. And yet few people saw anything wrong. In fact, it would be many years before the use of DDT was actually banned in this country.
"The Hubbard detoxification protocol is the only method which numerous peer reviewed studies have established to be safe and effective in addressing the problem of xenobiotic contamination."
—David Root M.D., M.P.H.
In 1977, Mr. Hubbard put forth the idea that LSD residues could store in human tissue and later react upon the person. He later extended this idea to other toxic compounds. Less than one year later he developed and released a detoxification procedure that could safely eliminate toxic chemicals that accumulate in fatty tissues.
Make no mistake: These were very radical ideas. And not without controversy.
The idea that chemical residues stored for years in the fat was controversial. The idea that these residues could actually cause subtle adverse effects was downright revolutionary. And to develop and offer a program that purported to get rid of these residues was, well, a very brave thing to do.
As we approach a new century, there is now a much different global awareness of our environment—and the human consequences which accompany our dependence on chemicals. Our conference today isn’t about controversies. It isn’t to argue about whether or not chemicals accumulate in the tissue. (The U.S. government has identified over 400 foreign chemicals in human tissue.) The purpose of this conference isn’t to criticize chemical companies. We’re here to do something about the problem. This conference is about results. That’s what counts.
Many hours have gone into developing our conference program. Whether you have been involved in detoxification issues for many years, or are entirely unfamiliar with the subject, I can assure you that you will learn some very exciting things in the next two days.
I am very pleased that we have so many international participants. And the interest in this conference continues to grow.
Unfortunately, there are many colleagues from around the world who were unable to attend. We are making a special effort to produce a Proceedings of this conference so that what transpires over the next few days can be shared with others.
Welcome to the conference. Over the next two days, I look forward to meeting each of you personally.
Keynote: William Marcus, Ph.D., D.A.B.T.
Good morning ladies and gentlemen. As a preamble to the keynote speakers who will specifically address L. Ron Hubbard’s purification program to flush harmful residual toxins from the human body, I would like to give you an overview of the history of chemical intoxication.
Chemical intoxication is not a problem that began with the advent of industrialization but has existed throughout human civilization. The use of chemical substances, as remedies for disease and as poisons, has occurred throughout recorded history.
As a senior scientist for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, William Marcus, Ph.D. (right) has helped develop environmental standards for chemicals such as lead, PCBs and pesticides. Attending the conference in his role as an expert consultant on chemical toxicology, he discussed the problem of environmental chemical exposures in the former Soviet Union with Russian physician Vladimir Ivanov, M.D.
The use of chemicals to treat diseases began in our earliest civilizations. Records on Egyptian papyrus describe potions used to treat various illnesses, most of which were derived from vegetable substances.
Hindu medicine, as well, used many vegetable derivatives, as did ancient Greek medicine. Many of the chemicals found in these vegetable derivatives are still in use in modern medicine.
The use of poisons as instruments of statecraft and political gain has a long and distinguished history. Socrates may be the first recorded person to be killed by the state through the use of poison. In Roman times, Caesar Augustus was poisoned by his wife Livia, and the emperor Claudius was poisoned in a similar manner by his wife Agrippina.
Aside from intentional poisoning, the Romans came into contact with poison daily in the form of lead. In Rome, the use of lead was a symbol of affluence. Patricians built their hook-ups to Rome’s famous water system of lead and even used lead in the production of household utensils.
One might go so far as to suggest that the fall of the Roman Empire can be measured by the levels of lead in the bones of their leaders. These extremely high levels of lead affected their ability to think, their ability to reproduce and their stamina.
Just another word about Rome. There was a very famous group of Roman ladies, members of the nobility, who were called the Ring of Poisoners. Their specialty was disposing of their husbands and inheriting their wealth. It became so obvious that this was outlawed. Up until that time there was no law about poisoners.
In the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, physicians continued to use chemicals as medical remedies and also began to observe and to record the symptoms of chemical intoxication.
Paracelsus is a towering example of a courageous physician. He was a practitioner of the dark arts of the Middle Ages, such as attempting to produce lead from gold or gold from gold. But in addition, he cured certain things that no one else could cure. Being shy and retiring, Paracelsus would go from town to town, challenging the local physicians. He would announce that he would take the most sick amongst the townspeople and cure them.
Paracelsus introduced the concept of getting rid of the poisons of infection by lancing suppurating wounds, boils, and infections rather than letting them become worse, and using sunlight and irrigation as tools to fight infection. He made this interesting observation: "In general, remedies that have the power of setting the spirits and blood mass in motion and of provoking sweat lead to cures." This is the approach of Mr. Hubbard’s purification program.
Paracelsus said that all substances are poisons. There are none which are not a poison. The right dose differentiates a poison and a remedy. In addition to his introduction of bismuth and arsenic, he used opium to alleviate pain.
Now about the same time, the church awarded ownership of cinnabar mines—mercury, very important material to alchemists of the time—to local rulers in Spain. The church ran them. What they did was look at the people who were the miners and they determined their condition by having them walk a straight line.
If they couldn’t walk a straight line, they were told that they should stop working until they could walk a straight line.
This is recorded by a very influential scientist named Bernardino Ramazzini, who wrote a book called On the Diseases of Workers. He talks about many different types of industries. Ramazzini made an accurate recording of the signs and symptoms of mercury poisoning, the same description one finds in a modern toxicology text.
"Bernardino Ramazzini (1633- 1714) made an accurate recording of the signs and symptoms of mercury poisoning, the same description one finds in a modern toxicology text. Interestingly enough, he also recorded psychic irritability, restlessness, and psychosis—symptoms that modern physicians not acquainted with the properties of industrial poisoning and heavy metals still mistakenly assign to psychological diseases."
Interestingly enough, he also recorded psychic irritability, restlessness, and psychosis—symptoms that modern physicians not acquainted with the properties of industrial poisoning and heavy metals still mistakenly assign to psychological diseases.
In fact, the expression "mad as a hatter" came into existence around this time as a result of mercury poisoning. Hatters closely guarded the secret of "felting," the process of producing the material known as felt. To produce the nitrates required in felting, hatters ate mercury of nitrate and urinated on fine fibers of animal hair. The nitrates came out in their urine, but the mercury drove them crazy.
At about this time in Italy there was a group of very rich women who employed poisons in their households. Amongst them, we are all familiar with the Medici, the Borgias. It became obvious, when their husbands began to die—more than one of the same lady’s husbands began to die—that they were being poisoned. A bit of history repeating itself. So this ring of women poisoners was rounded up and tried and that was the end of poisoning as an art of inheriting money.
A related scientific observation from this period was the description of the symptoms of ergotism in humans. Again, psychological effects were noted as symptoms of chemical intoxication.
Ergot, a fungus that infects grains, has been used for centuries for its medicinal properties. It is employed to control hemorrhage and to promote contraction of the uterus in childbirth. However, when ergot contaminates a food supply, it has serious consequences on the affected population. People go crazy. They jump out of windows, they do all sorts of unusual things.
The last large epidemic of ergotism was in New York in 1825, not so long ago.
There was an epidemic which occurred in Russia, actually, in 1926 to 1927 and a mild one in Manchester, England in 1828. The reports included people leaping from windows and psychosis.
In high levels, ergot causes the smaller vessels to contract. People would present with persistent violent headaches or report ants crawling all over their skin when, of course, there were none to be seen. They would experience nausea, vomiting and itching. As the disease progresses, the skin becomes anesthetic or hyper-sensitive. They would have outrageous hunger, stomach problems or a loss of appetite.
Disturbance of the central nervous system would result in disturbances of the special senses. They would hear imaginary things. They would see things, and they would smell things that weren’t there.
They would twitch. The tremors were most marked in their extremities, and in their tongue. The twitches would pass into spasms, and the spasms into permanent contractions beginning with the flexor muscles. Fingers would turn inward.
The physicians in the audience know that when somebody presents with these kinds of symptoms, it’s a very daunting problem to determine what is causing them. So many different organ systems are involved, instead of the usual one. And there is no obvious reason for otherwise normal people to suddenly go off the deep end. If it weren’t for the fact that the symptoms were widespread, one would never realize that there was a common etiology.
The reason I bring this up is that today, many of the people who have been poisoned with modern industrial chemicals present with many of the same symptoms.
They are often dismissed as being "crack pots," or "nuts," rather than being correctly diagnosed with chemical intoxication.
In the 1840s rubber manufacture began. The solvent used in the manufacture of rubber using natural rubber is benzene.
In the 1840s there were reports of problems caused by benzene. These persisted in the 1900s in Baltimore, where there were reports of cancers of the lymphatic system. In 1921, the United States Public Health Service published a warning of changes in the circulating blood system that portended serious consequences.
Tetraethyl lead is another example of a probelmatic industrial compound. The reason it was introduced was that it made it possible to use one third less of the most expensive petroleum materials to produce a gallon of gasoline with sufficient octane to be used in automobiles. Tetraethyl lead turned out to be so toxic that it brought about the first instance of a closed manufacturing process, to spare workers the consequences of exposure to organic lead.
In 1942, during World War II, the United States lost access to natural rubber and began manufacturing artificial rubber, using butediene and benzene, together so potent that a closed system of manufacture was again required.
At the same time, the United States developed war gases. And they assigned this job to the United States Chemical Corps who became known affectionately as the "Comical Corps." They produced organophosphates, similar to and not a whole lot different than the nerve gasses the Germans produced. Those chemical warheads, with these particularly noxious gases, have been stored in many places.
Most of them now reside on Johnson Island in the Pacific—rotting, leaking, rusting. They were supposed to have been destroyed and disposed of in the early 1950s, but hundreds and thousands are still sitting.
During World War II, Hercules Powder was producing propellants for the United States military. The workers at Hercules Powder would come home on the weekend and feel terrible. When they went back to work they felt great. Nitrates are the major component of a propellant, and it turned out that exposure to nitrates was causing their coronary arteries to increase in size, and thicken. With the nitrates in their systems the arteries were relaxed. But when they came home, they didn’t have the nitrates. The internal bore of the artery would get smaller and they would suffer angina.
This incident was one of the beginning sentinels that showed that the manufacture of industrial chemicals can cause a specific disease endemic only to that industry.
Subsequent to that, vinyl chloride appeared, used in the manufacture of plastics.
Aniline dyes became recognized as causing problems resulting in cancer of the bladder in dye workers. In the late 1940s, bladder cancer was discovered not only among employees of DuPont, but also among the workers’ wives and children, as the dye was loosed in their households.
Chlordane was developed for use against termites. DDT had been used during the war by our troops in Europe in incredible amounts. Anyone traveling in Europe after World War II may have noticed that there were few, if any, flies or mosquitoes. Meat hung out in the open in many markets, and there were few, if any bugs, to be found.
In the 1970s, two researchers at Mt. Sinai Hospital, Irving Selicoff and Ruth Lilis, published several papers on toxicology.
Dr. Selicoff researched asbestos, demonstrating that it was the cause of the disease mesotheliome. Dr. Lilis published a series of papers demonstrating that solvents, DDT and other materials stored in fat.
These papers were some of the first to examine specific public health consequences of the unprecedented accumulation of toxic by-products of industrialization in human tissues.
Irv Geller developed the "executive monkey" and he demonstrated that solvents and PCBs caused problems in the decision- making process in animals. In the early 1970s the PCB story came out and the Toxic Substances Control Act was passed as a result of it. It was demonstrated that dioxin, a carcinogen, stored in the fat.
"Today, the requirements for a chemical to be a problem are very interesting. Either you have to produce incredible amounts of it, or it has to have a very high fat solubility and the ability to bioconcentrate."
In 1977, L. Ron Hubbard recognized that there was a problem. He developed something called the "sweat program." But that took months and months and months to complete. In 1978, he modified the program and came out with what is known as the "purification program," sometimes referred to as the Hubbard detoxification method.
Now, the speakers that follow have hands-on experience utilizing this method.
They have a great deal of data to present and are far more experienced in its administration than I. The application of this procedure in addressing the effects of environmental and occupational exposures, as well as drug abuse, is the subject of this conference.
I thank you.

In the last decade, organizations ranging from the World Health Organization to the Society for Occupational and Environmental Health have published papers concerning the detoxification method developed by researcher and writer L. Ron Hubbard. The first panel of the conference introduced the basic elements of the detoxification protocol, and provided an overview of societal changes that have brought about a need for human detoxification. Panelists from the fields of medicine, toxicology, biology and drug rehabilitation discussed the Hubbard protocol and its applications in treating chemical exposures and drug abuse.
Dr. Shields began her remarks with a discussion of the extent of chemical proliferation, observing that over four million man-made chemical compounds have been identified since 1965. More than 70,000 compounds are in current production, with 6,000 new compounds identified each week. In addition, at least 3,000 man-made chemicals are added to food. Added to this are illicit drugs, over-the-counter pharmaceuticals and prescription medicine.
Many of these "xenobiotics"—chemical substances foreign to living organisms —accumulate in the human body.
At least 400 foreign compounds have been identified in human tissues. The National Human Adipose Tissue Survey (NHATS), a program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency analyzes adipose (fat) tissues in cadavers from around the country. According to NHATS, 100 percent of Americans have xylene, styrene and other known carcinogens in their fat.
If xenobiotics were merely stored, inert, there might not be a problem. However, Dr. Shields related that there is ample evidence that they can be "mobilized" and released from fat stores. Even at low levels they can cause a variety of mental and physical effects.
Mobilization may occur as a result of fasting, exercise, stress or heat.
Moreover, toxicological evaluations of individual toxic chemicals do not account for the fact that there may be hundreds or even thousands of compounds and metabolites within the adipose tissue of any given individual.
These may interact, with wide-ranging effects.
In cases of chronic low-level chemical exposures, disease may progress slowly, with symptoms that could be attributed to a variety of causes. Dr. Shields observed that almost every patient she has treated for low-level toxicity has at one time or another been told by a physician that his or her symptoms could not possibly be caused by chemical or drug toxicity, because there was no evidence of an acute dose of the substance in question. She emphasized that a "high degree of suspicion" and a careful patient history are necessary to establish links between observed symptoms and specific chemicals.
Several authors of popular books on chemical contamination, environmental illness and drug abuse were present at the conference.
These included (from left) Joan Corbet-Dyne, contributing author to The Green Shalom Handbook ; John Duff, co-author of The Truth About Drugs and the upcoming Ending Addiction ; Doris Rapp, M.D., author of several books on environmental illness, including Allergies and the Hyperactive Child ; Marion Moses, M.D., director of the Pesticide Education Center and author of Designer Poisons ; and R. Michael Wisner, co-author, with conference panelist David Steinman, of the recently published Living Healthy in a Toxic World.
In 1979, L. Ron Hubbard finalized a precise method for ridding the body of fat-stored drug and chemical residues.
As related in his writings on the subject, his research was prompted by a desire to help former LSD users—who often continued to feel the effects of the drug years after they had last taken it. During development of the program, participants reported the apparent exudation of medical and pharmaceutical drugs, as well as industrial, commercial and agricultural chemicals.
"The fact is, there is no such thing as a ‘reference range’ or a ‘normal range’ for a toxic chemical. None of these things should be in the body."

"Why were so many addicts unable to maintain sobriety, despite sincere efforts? The accepted notion was that when the blood was clean of drugs, the body was. But ask an addict if he or she felt clean. Most suffered a cumulative numbness, a life-long hangover that had come to appear normal."
Dr. Shields noted that today, more than 100,000 people worldwide have successfully completed the Hubbard detoxification program, also known as the "Purification Program." The methodology has been clinically tested, with the finding that levels of residual chemicals are consistently and significantly reduced. This is accompanied by relief from symptoms associated with chemical exposure.
The program is designed to increase mobilization of toxic substances, prevent their re-absorption and recirculation, and facilitate their elimination. Dr. Shields stressed that from a medical perspective, the goal of detoxification is clinical improvement—improved function, quality of life and related factors.
Elements of the Protocol
Note: The detoxification protocol is fully described in L. Ron Hubbard’s book, Clear Body Clear Mind, (Bridge Publications, 1990). The following is a brief summary of material presented and discussed by the panel.
Daily doses of immediate-release niacin: Niacin stimulates lipid mobilization by triggering the release of free fatty acids into the bloodstream. It has been demonstrated that, while free fatty acid levels drop initially after taking immediate- release niacin, they rise markedly within two hours and then gradually return to normal.
Moderate aerobic exercise: This increases circulation, which ensures quick distribution of the niacin throughout the body and carries mobilized toxins to the excretory routes. Running is preferred, but this can be changed if medically indicated.
Intermittent sauna to force sweating:
As shown in several studies on this procedure, sweat is a primary elimination route for toxins. Sauna temperatures range from 140 to 180 degrees, lower than the typical health-club sauna.
The sauna must be well-ventilated.
Subjects take frequent showers, both to cool down and to remove substances from the skin and prevent their reabsorption.
Liquids are administered and participants are monitored for signs of dehydration and heat exhaustion.
Ingestion of cold-pressed oils: These are provided to prevent mobilized toxins from being re-absorbed by the intestines to meet body needs for lipids. Polyunsaturated oils have been found to enhance excretion of extremely persistent chemicals, without depositing fat in the liver.
Vitamin and mineral supplementation:
These replace vitamins, minerals and electrolytes lost due to increased sweating and correct deficiencies which are common among chemically-exposed individuals and drug abusers.
Excretion of Toxins
Researchers have found that chemicals mobilized and released into the bloodstream during detoxification may be excreted through a variety of routes, including sebum, lung vapor, sweat, urine and via the gut. Some panelists addressed whether the sudden release of stored chemicals into the bloodstream could have a toxic effect.
Shelley Beckmann, Ph.D., discussed research which addressed concerns that toxins mobilized during detoxification could reach unsafe levels. Blood studies have indicated that an increased rate of excretion keeps pace with the increased mobilization of chemicals from body fat.
Shelley Beckmann, Ph.D., discussed research which has compared the blood of persons doing the program to that of control groups. The comparison found that individuals undergoing detoxification do not have significantly higher quantities of chemicals in their blood than those normally found in the body.
This finding has led researchers to conclude that the increased excretion of toxins keeps pace with mobilization.
Clark Carr of Narconon, a drug rehabilitation program utilizing this detoxification modality, discussed the relationship between drug residues, addiction and detoxification. He began by recounting the history of the Narconon program, founded by William Benitez, a prisoner in Arizona State Prison who read Mr. Hubbard’s book The Fundamentals of Thought. From his reading, he concluded that he could improve his condition and overcome his addiction by raising his ability. He wrote to Mr. Hubbard, asking him to help him and other addicts in prison to help themselves. Mr. Hubbard responded, recommending specific procedures that emphasized communication, self discipline, personal ethics and integrity.
The Narconon program was effective, said Mr. Carr. But even though graduates were able to remain off drugs, many were troubled by persistent cravings to use drugs, flashbacks and fear of permanent damage or personality disorder. Some relapsed.
Narconon had existed for 15 years when Mr. Hubbard completed his research on detoxification. At that time, Narconon added detoxification to the steps of its program. According to Mr. Carr, the results were significant. In addition to overcoming their cravings for drugs, clients routinely experienced dramatic improvements in composure and responsibility, as well as IQ.
During the discussion period that followed, panelists and audience members addressed a variety of questions regarding practical details of administering the program, the most suitable type of sauna, etc.
Dr. Marcus discussed a finding of particular interest regarding the detoxification regimen: it appears that body levels of stored chemicals continue to go down after the program has been completed.
This has led some researchers to conclude that the program rehabilitates the body’s ability to detoxify itself.
