David Bowie has died after a battle with cancer, according to the Associated Press. He was 69. Bowie secretly lived with cancer for 18 months, and Blackstar, the album he dropped last week, has been called a dedication to his fans as he knew he was dying.

“David Bowie died peacefully today surrounded by his family after a courageous 18-month battle with cancer. While many of you will share in this loss, we ask that you respect the family’s privacy during their time of grief,” read a statement posted on the artist’s official social media accounts.

Bowie, he has been married to supermodel Iman since the 90’s, not only will be remembered for his music, but also for his memorable acting roles, especially as Jareth in Labyrinth.

Eerily, Bowie’s new music video that was also released last week, depicts a man on the verge of death and speaking about being free like a bird.

    Ozone therapy can cure all forms of cancer, herpes, aids, ebola….ect. Crazy that people are still dying from curable diseases.

      Probably because it doesn’t.

      Here’s a article from the African Journal of Infectious Diseases which only allow reputable sources. 5 people confirmed cured of ebola using Ozone therapy. Also Ozone therapy has been used successfully overseas for over 100 years……..

      There is no such thing as a cure-all. Air can’t reverse infection or break up tumors. Where is the methodolgy, where’s the control group? This is all correllation. Ozone and frequency therapies weren’t taken seriously in the days of Royal Rife or Wilhelm Reich, so they’re no use now.

      Ha! You do know you’re speaking to someone who had friends and family treated with ozone therapy. My brother had 3 impacted wisdom teeth pulled with no painful recovery using ozone to clean it up. My friend was treating both asthma and chronic fatigue syndrome. Both was cured in only 4 treatments. Another friend who’s from colombia treated his 5 year old son who suffered from stomach sphincter disorders and cure that problem also. Ozone therapy has been used in Europe for over 100 years for everything from water treatment to curing cancer. It’s been used in America also for the last 40 years. If you did any type of research you would’ve found case studies proving Ozone therapy effectiveness dating back 40 years. Dr. Robert Rowen who use ozone therapy even has videos on youtube showing the effectiveness. If you’re interested there’s a documentary called “Ozone, Medical Breakthrough” that’s on vimeo you can watch explaining tons about the history of ozone usage in the medical field.

      Rowen has been in trouble with the law for making false and illegal claims and defrauding his patients, as have most of the major proponents of ozone therapy. Last I saw, Rowen had to do ten months probation and pay a huge fine. These people aren’t recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS), His ilk has set up certifying
      boards so they can call themselves “board certified” but they don’t reveal how and what makes them certified and have been pursued by the FDA and BBB. Some of these people got their ‘M.D.’s from an online ‘course’. Dr. Mercola is another one who is hounded by the FDA for making claims about long-term effects that aren’t borne out by evidence. Many of these people aren’t even doctors but many who are have had their licenses revoked and people who have been caught distributing ozone machines get slammed by the IRS for fraud. Rowen is discredited and a pariah in the medical community.

      The usefulness of ozone is tested and re-tested over and over across the years and they still get the same result. None or the papers praising it are coming out of academic, peer-reviewed journals, and some seemingly reputable sites are pretty lax about vetting.

      Oxygen tents do work and are used all the time, but it’s not ozone, so that’s not the issue. I’ve had tons of dental surgery and have never had complications, so, specious reasoning could tell me that it’s because I didn’t take ozone. Anecdotes aren’t evidence.

      At best, ozone therapy can help with beneath the surface cavity disinfections, but it’s not so great for long term root canal disinfections.
      Double blind studies of ozone use in AIDS treatment have been shown to be ineffective at best. The American Cancer Society has rejected ozone as an effective treatment and the FDA agrees with the scientific consensus that ozone is a toxic gas which has, as yet, not demonstrated safe medical application in specific or preventive therapy. They’ve been saying this for decades. The treatments performed in Europe over the last century were based on impressions from uncontrolled anecdotal clinical experiences reported in German newspapers, magazines, and proponent newsletters. It worked because they said it worked, but there wasn’t anything behind the claims. Whatever improvements they experienced were based largely on the placebo effect, which is extremely powerful.

      At the levels needed to act as a germacide, the FDA again says would be dangerous. A lot of people have been hurt or have died as a result of the treatment as overexposure to ozone breaks down cell walls in the lungs, it’s called Projectioner’s Lung. In the most ideal (for what it is) circumstances, the patient needs to have a 100% functional immune system, but people seeking out this treatment frequently don’t, so their conditions are exacerbated. A lot of people who pushed the therapy are in prison right now. The Environmental Protection Agency considers ground-level ozone to be a pollutant that causes significant health risks.

      The ‘cure’ operates off of the belief that diseases can’t grow in a high oxygen environment, but there is no scientific evidence to back that up.
      0zone is a highly oxidizing form of oxygen that, with time, has very harmful long-term effects on our respiratory systems, not to mention the dangers associated with the blood treatment which introduces hydrogen peroxide in the mix. As such, if you squirt ozone on cancer cells on a dish they will die – but then so will all cells. You’ll get exactly the same reaction from tossing gin on the cells.

      The literature de-bunking ozone therapy is vast and as old as the claims of its efficacy. The power of the mind is the closest we’ll get to a cure-all because ozone certainly isn’t it. And in my research, I’ve never seen the word ‘quack’ used so often and in medical journals, at that.

    • Mr logical guy

      Literally everything you just stated is false or misleading. The mere fact that you mention the FDA who are known to use fraudulent science to please their masters totally render your statement as bogus. Do a quick google search “FDA fraud” and you’ll see thousands of articles on the FDA caught up in criminal and fraudulent activity. You must work for the FDA or some health insurance company. Believe what you want…….but for anyone else who come across this that have family members with health problems research Ozone therapy.

      So, the IRS, BBB, FDA, Cancer Society, Board of Specialists, EPA, Natural Dentistry Practicioners, etc. are conspirators persecuting people who made up their qualifications and falsified their testimony for no reason? Why? We decided to stop small pox but we’re keeping cancer around just for fun? There’s no way I’m extrapolating what sort of helps to clean a tooth to treatment for terminal illness. At any rate, I’ve managed to go through this disagreement without making personal attacks, you’ve done it twice, so I’m not subjecting myself to that.

    • Mr logical guy

      I’m not here to convince you either way. I seen ozone therapy work first hand while all you did was use google. The medical industrial complex make billions every year in disease “maintenance” cause they don’t cure shit. The money is in disease maintenance not the cure. Only a fool would blindly trust any industry that generate that kind of yearly income. Plus the 1,000,000+ Europeans who were treated and still are currently benefiting from ozone therapy will tell you otherwise. If you’re too lazy to do real research outside of a 15min google search then suit yourself :)

      Last time: If you can’t make your arguments without personal insults then feel free to never bother me again.

      Okay, I’ll take that the New England Journal of Medicine. Done.
