shall publish in a later issue another article on this new system, together with the
effects of ultra radio frequencies in the treatment of other diseases
in human beings. Since November, 1923, I have published in various technical
and radio publications, several papers in which I explained my
theory that the instinct or special feeling, which permits birds
to direct themselves in space, is only the results of the
emission and reception of rays by living beings.
While developing this theory, I explained how thoroughly I
was convinced that science will discover, some day, not only the
nature of microbes but the radiation which they produce, but also
a method of killing disease bacilli within the human body by
means of the proper radiations.
The researches I have made by means of special apparatus
have shown such results, that I believe my theory to be correct.
This theory is that life is born from radiations, kept going by
radiation and suppressed by any accident producing the
destruction of the oscillatory equilibrium, especially by the
radiations of certain microbes, which suppress those of the
Before going any further in our reasoning, it is necessary,
in order to present the facts to the uninitiated reader, to
imagine what oscillations really are.
The motion of a pendulum will be used for this explanation.
When a pendulum is displaced from the position of equilibrium, it
moves back and forth producing what are known as synchronous
oscillations, until the energy stored is entirely exhausted. By
means of a motor, a spring, or an electro-magnet, it is possible
to keep the motion of the pendulum of constant amplitude,
producing undamped oscillations.
If, on the contrary, the source of power is removed, the
oscillations die down and it is necessary not only to re-apply
the power sustaining the oscillations, but also to furnish
additional energy to start the pendulum in motion. This
oscillation of a pendulum reproduces exactly what happens in the
cells of a living being.
Our organs are composed of cells formed of protoplasm
containing various mineral matters and acids, such as iron,
chloride, phosphorous, etc. It is by the combination of these
elements that the cells detect outside waves and vibrate
continuously at a very high frequency, probably higher than the
period of X-rays or over all other vibrations known and measured
The amplitude of cell oscillations must reach a certain
value, in order that the organism be strong enough to repulse the
destructive vibrations from certain microbes.
The astrophysicians are actually carrying out experiments of
great interest on the existence of vibrations, which have been
called penetration rays and of which the frequency is higher than
that of X-rays and of the alpha, beta and gamma rays of radium.
Such rays, according to the theory, are produced by the
earth itself and some others come from outside space.
Accurate measurements have proven the correctness of this
theory. Therefore, it is quite permissible to believe that these
penetration rays, or at least some of them, produce the vibratory
motion of living cells and consequently their life.
For instance, let us suppose a cell vibrates at a certain
frequency and a microbe vibrates at a different frequency; the
microbe begins to fight the cell through radiation, and sickness is started.
If the cell cannot repel the stronger vibrations and if the
amplitude of its own vibration is forced to decrease, the microbe
gains in amplitude and its vibrations begin to decrease and stop
those of the cells, bringing on dangerous sickness or death.
If, on the contrary,the living cell is started vibrating
with the proper amplitude by inside or outside causes, the
oscillatory attack is repulsed. Such is my theory.
The problem is somewhat similar to the situation in which a
rescuer finds himself when, coming to help a friend in a
dangerous situation,finds himself fighting hand to hand against
strong aggressors. The rescuer does not dare to fire his gun,
fearing to harm his friend mixed up with the aggressors in the
Similarly, microbes and healthy cells are all exposed to
electric or radio-active action, which could be used to destroy
the unwanted rays and it is difficult to suppress them without
harming or killing at the same time the cells which are to be
treated. In fact, since Pasteur, scientists have been constantly
searching for a means of destroying microbes. The great difficulty with all methods found was that in
destroying, the bacillae cell was attacked too. The experience
gained in cancer and tuberculosis treated with radium, X-rays, or
ultra-violet rays, shows how difficult is the world of the
A NEW METHOD
The remedy in my opinion, is not to kill the microbes in
contact with the healthy cells, but to reinforce the oscillations
of the cell either directly by reinforcing the radio activity of
the blood or in producing on the cells a direct action by means
of the proper rays.
During January, 1924, I began to build, according to this
theory, and with the purpose of therapeutic applications, an
apparatus, which I have called the Radio-Cellulo-Oscillator, with
the firm belief that the cells vibrating at extremely short wave-
lengths would find their own in the Hertzian waves, which have
the properties of producing extremely short harmonics.
The cell with very weak vibrations, when placed in the field
of multiple radiations, finds its own frequency and starts again
to oscillate normally through the phenomenon of resonance.
This type of vibration are produced by the radio waves which
I propose to use, is harmless, unlike those of x-rays and radium.
Their application, therefore, does not present any danger for the
I exposed in front of my apparatus, during long periods, a
certain number of microbes in culture, which developed themselves
normally. I, myself, have never felt the effect of these ultra
radio frequencies, although I remained for a great many days near
the apparatus, during the treatment applied to the living cells.
It is only when two living beings such as a cell and a
microbe, are in contact, that the rays produced by the Radio-
Cellulo-Oscillator have any direct effect upon cellular
The experiments which I carried out at the Salpetriere
Hospital in Paris, in the service and with the collaboration of
Prof. Gosset, were made with plants inoculated with cancer, and
the results were described in a paper presented on July 26, last
year, before the Biological Society. The text of this paper
"One knows that it is possible to produce by inoculation
of Bacterium tumefaciens in plants, tumors similar to
those of cancer in animals. One of us obtained experimentally by this method, a great
number of tumors. These had various degrees of
development. Some of them dry up partially, but do not
die entirely until the entire plant or at least the limb
bearing the tumor dies.
Even removed by surgical methods, these tumors grew again
on the sick limb."
THE RADIO CELLULO-OSCILLATOR

electromagnetic waves of very high frequency obtained by
means of the Radio Cellulo-Oscillator of George
This apparatus produces wave-lengths of the order of two
meters and less, corresponding to 150 million cycles per
A first plant was submitted to the effect of the
radiation one month after being inoculated with cancer;
at this time small tumors of the size of a cherry stone
were visible upon it. This plant was submitted to the
rays twice, for three hours each time.
During the following days, the tumors continued to grow
rapidly in the same ways as those on plants, which had
not been submitted to the effect of radiations. However,
16 days after the first treatment, the tumors began to
shrink and dry up.

This plant (center), innoculated with cancer on the 4th December 1924 was encircled with an open
metallic circuit of 30 cm. diameter and kept in position by an ebonite rod. The photograph, taken
2 months after inoculation, that is to say at the end of January 1925, shows the cancerous tumour
developing together with the plant which does not appear to be affected by it, whereas the control
plants, inoculated with cancer on the same date and shown here beside the treated plant, have all

with Lakhovsky's Oscillating circuit, showing remarkable development.
Two untreated control plants are shown beside it.
A few days later the tumors were entirely dried up and
could be very easily detached from the limb of the plant
by merely touching them.
The drying action of the radio frequency radiations is
selective and affects only the sick part of the plant.
Even the inside sick tissues were destroyed, although
they were next to healthy cells in the center of the
limb, showing that the radiations had not affected the
THE LENGTH OF TREATMENT
"Another plant was treated in the same way, except that it
was exposed 11 times, for three hours each time, to the
radiations of the oscillator.
Sixteen days after the first exposure the tumors, which
were rather large as shown in one of the photographs,
began to shrink and dry up and were easily detached from
the limb exactly as in the first case.
Again in this a case, the healthy parts of the plant were
not affected in the least.
A third plant exposed to the radiations for nine hours,
that is, three treatments of three hours each, was cured
in the same manner as the two others.
Sixteen plants also innoculated with cancer, were left
without treatment. They have tumors in full activity,
several of which are very large.
These experiments show conclusively that plants
innoculated with cancer an be treated and cured by means
of the ultra radio frequency vibrations, whereas surgical
"In conclusion I wish to call the attention of the reader
to the fact that I have obtained very conclusive results
not only with a wavelength of two meters, but with longer
and shorter wave-lengths. The main thing is to produce
the greatest number of harmonics possible.
Such are the results of my researches with plants. At the
present time, similar experiments are being carried out with
animals and it seems that the effect on cancerous animals is the
same as on cancerous plants.
I am highly pleased to present my theory and the results of
my work in a scientific review of the United States, this great
country, which has always been in the lead in the fight against
this terrible sickness, cancer, and whose sympathy and help I
would greatly appreciate.
