The key to good health and longevity is Oxygen and an easy effective source of supplementing Oxygen is Hydrogen peroxide


We are just beginning to learn exactly how H202 works. It was reported to work as far back as 1920. The English medical journal, Lancet, then reported that intravenous infusion was used successfully to treat pneumonia in the epidemic following World War I. 

In the 1940´s Father Richard Willhelm, the pioneer in promoting peroxide use, reported on the compound being used extensively to treat everything from bacterial-related mental illness to skin disease and polio.

Father Willhelm is the founder of "Educational Concern for Hydrogen Peroxide" (ECHO, a non-profit organization dedicated to educating the public on the safe use and therapeutic benefits of Hydrogen Peroxide.)

Much of the interest in hydrogen peroxide waned in the 1940´s when prescription medications came on the scene.  Since that time there has been little economic interest in funding peroxide research. After all, it is dirt cheap and non-patentable.

Here's the Science

 

H2O2 demonstrates broad-spectrum efficacy against viruses, bacteria, yeasts, and bacterial spores. [1]

H2O2 inactivates viruses [2]

 

H2O2 is effective for the sterilisation of various surfaces [3]

H2O2 is effective for the sterilisation of surgical tools [4]

H2O2 is effective for room sterilisation as a vapour (VHP) [5] [6]

And

Hydrogen peroxide is seen as an environmentally safe alternative to chlorine-based bleaches, as it degrades to form oxygen and water and it is generally recognised as safe as an antimicrobial agent by the U.S Food and Drug Administration (FDA) [7]
