Royal Raymond Rife Discovers Cancer Cure
By Jeff Rense
Imagine, for a moment,
that you have spent more than two decades in painfully laborious
research, and that you have now discovered a simple, electronic
approach with the potential of curing literally every disease on the planet caused by
viruses and bacteria. Indeed, it is a discovery that could end the pain
and suffering of countless millions and change life on Earth forever.
Certainly, the medical world would rush to embrace you with every
imaginable accolade and financial reward imaginable. You would think
so, wouldn't you?
the greatest medical genius in all recorded history suffered a fate
literally the opposite of the foregoing logical scenario. In fact, the
history of medicine is replete with stories of genius betrayed by
backward thought and jealously, but most pathetically, by greed and
In the nineteenth century, Semmelweiss struggled mightily to convince
surgeons that it was a good idea to sterilize their instruments and use
sterile surgical procedures. Pasteur was ridiculed for years for his
theory that germs could cause disease. Scores of other medical
visionaries went through hell for simply challenging the medical status
quo of the day, including such legends as Roentgen and his X-rays, Morton
for promoting the 'absurd' idea of anaesthesia, Harvey for his theory
of the circulation of blood, and many others in recent decades
including: W.F. Koch, Revici, Burzynski, Naessens, Priore,
Livingston-Wheeler, and Hoxsey.
Orthodox big-money medicine resents and seeks to neutralize and/or
destroy those who challenge its beliefs. Often, the visionary who
challenges it pays a heavy price for his 'heresy.'
So, you have just discovered a new therapy which can eradicate any
microbial disease but, so far, you and your amazing cure aren't very
popular. What do you do next? Well, certainly the research foundations
and teaching institutions would welcome news of your astounding
discovery. Won't they be thrilled to learn you have a cure for the very
same diseases they are receiving hundreds of millions of dollars per
year to investigate? Maybe not, if it means the end of the gravy train for all your research to find a cure.
These people have mortgages to pay and families to support.
Perhaps you should take your discovery to the pharmaceutical industry;
certainly it would be of great interest to those protectors of
humanity, right? But remember, you have developed a universal cure
which could make most drugs obsolete, so the pharmaceutical industry just might
be less than thrilled to hear about your work. In fact, the bigshots
might even make it certain that your human disease-ending technology
never sees the light of day, by preventing it from becoming licensed by
the regulatory agencies.
Now, assuming your amazing cure is an electronic instrument, the only
cost of using it is electricity. And it is harmless to
patients, who can recover without losing their hair, the family home,
and their life savings. So, with your technology, there is no longer
any reason for people with cancer to pay over $300,000 per patient –
to become deathly ill from chemotherapy, radiation treatments, and
surgery. It sounds like you won't find many friends and support among
practicing oncologists, radiologists, and surgeons, doesn't it?
You might try the hospitals and big clinics. But how thrilled are they
going to be about a therapy administered in any doctor's office; which
reverses illness before the patient has to be hospitalized? Thanks to
you, the staffs of these institutions would essentially be out of work.
Well then, how about the insurance companies? Surely, they would be
delighted to save the expense of hospitalization – at least the
companies which haven't invested in hospitals, where the staff is now
sitting around waiting for someone to break a leg or be in a car
accident ... and the ones who don't lose policyholders as a result of
your invention ... and the companies which aren't trying to divest their
pharmaceutical stock. Oh well, forget the insurance companies, too.
It looks like you just might have a little problem with the medical
Probably the only friends you'll have will be the patients and those
progressive doctors who see change as an opportunity, rather than a
threat to their established money-making machines. Those people will
love you. But they don't call the shots.
What follows now is the story of exactly such a sensational therapy
and what happened to it. In one of the blackest episodes in recorded
history, this remarkable electronic therapy was sabotaged and buried by
a ruthless group of men. It has re-emerged in the underground
medical/alternative health world only since the mid-1980's. This is the
story of Royal Raymond Rife and his fabulous discoveries and electronic
If you have never heard of Rife before, prepare to be angered and
incredulous at what this great man achieved for all of us only to have
it practically driven from the face of the planet. But, reserve your
final judgment and decision until after you have read this.
Of course, some may regard this as just an amusing piece of fiction.
However, for those who are willing to do some investigating on their
own, there will be mentioned several highly-respected doctors and
medical authorities who worked with Rife, as well as some of the
remarkable technical aspects of his creation. So let's now turn to the story of the most amazing medical
pioneer of the 20th century.
The Life of Royal Rife
Royal Raymond Rife
was a brilliant scientist born in 1888 and died in
1971. After studying at
Johns Hopkins, Rife developed technology which is still commonly used
today in the fields of optics, electronics, radiochemistry,
biochemistry, ballistics, and aviation. He
received 14 major
awards and honors and was given an honorary Doctorate by the University
of Heidelberg for his work. During the 66 years that Rife spent
designing and building medical instruments, he worked for Zeiss Optics,
the U.S. Government, and several private benefactors.
Because Rife was self-educated in so many different fields, he
intuitively looked for his answers in areas beyond the rigid scientific
structure of his day. He had mastered so many different disciplines
that he literally had, at his intellectual disposal, the skills and
knowledge of an entire team of scientists and technicians from a number
of different scientific fields. So, whenever new technology was needed
to perform a new task, Rife simply invented and then built it himself.
Rife's inventions include a heterodyning ultraviolet microscope [see New York Times article], a
microdissector, and a micromanipulator. When you thoroughly understand
Rife's achievements, you may well decide that his was one
of the most gifted, versatile, scientific minds in human
By 1920, Rife had finished building the world's first virus microscope. By 1933, he had perfected that technology and had constructed the
incredibly complex Universal Microscope, which had nearly 6,000
different parts and was capable of magnifying objects 30,000 times
their normal size. With this incredible microscope, Rife became the
first human being to actually see a live virus.
Modern electron microscopes instantly kill everything beneath them,
viewing only the mummified remains and debris. What the Rife microscope
can see is the bustling activity of living viruses as they change form
to accommodate changes in environment, replicate rapidly in response to
carcinogens, and transform normal cells into tumor cells. But how was
Rife able to accomplish this, in an age when electronics and medicine
were still just evolving? Here are a few technical details to placate
Rife painstakingly identified the individual spectroscopic signature of
each microbe, using a slit spectroscope attachment. Then, he slowly
rotated block quartz prisms to focus light of a single wavelength upon
the microorganism he was examining. This wavelength was selected
because it resonated with the spectroscopic signature frequency of the
microbe based on the now-established fact that every molecule oscillates at its own distinct frequency.
The atoms that come together to form a molecule are held together in
that molecular configuration with a covalent energy bond which both
emits and absorbs its own specific electromagnetic frequency. No two
species of molecule have the same electromagnetic oscillations or
energetic signature. Resonance amplifies light in the same way two
ocean waves intensify each other when they merge together.
The result of using a resonant wavelength is that micro-organisms which
are invisible in white light suddenly become visible in a brilliant
flash of light when they are exposed to the color frequency that
resonates with their own distinct spectroscopic signature. Rife was
thus able to see these otherwise invisible organisms and watch them
actively invading tissues cultures. Rife's discovery enabled him to
view organisms that no one else could see with ordinary microscopes. [For more details in an article written by Rife, click here]
than 75% of the
organisms Rife could see with his Universal Microscope are only visible
with ultra-violet light. But ultraviolet light is outside the range of
human vision, it is 'invisible' to us. Rife's brilliance allowed him to
overcome this limitation by heterodyning, a technique which became
popular in early radio broadcasting.
He illuminated the microbe
(usually a virus or bacteria) with two [harmonic] wavelengths of ... ultraviolet light frequency which resonated with the spectral
signature of the microbe. These two wavelengths produced interference
where they merged. This interference was, in effect, a third, longer
wave which fell into the visible portion of the electromagnetic
spectrum. This was how Rife made invisible microbes visible without
killing them, a feat which today's electron microscopes cannot
duplicate. [For a 1944 Smithsonian Institution report which includes information on Rife's amazing microscopes, click here and do a search for the word "Rife"]
By this time, Rife was so far ahead of his colleagues of the 1930's
that they could not comprehend what he was doing without actually
traveling to San Diego to Rife's laboratory to look through his Virus
Microscope for themselves. And many did exactly that.
One was Virginia Livingston. She eventually moved from New Jersey to
Rife's Point Loma (San Diego) neighborhood and became a frequent
visitor to his lab. Virginia Livingston is now often given the credit
for identifying the organism which causes human cancer, beginning with
research papers she began publishing in 1948.
Research into Cancer and Cancer Cures
reality, Royal Rife
had identified the human cancer virus first. ... In 1920, Rife made over
20,000 unsuccessful attempts to transform normal cells into tumor
cells. He finally succeeded when he irradiated the cancer virus, passed
it through a cell-catching ultra-fine porcelain filter, and injected it
into lab animals. Not content to prove this virus would cause one
tumor, Rife then created 400 tumors in succession from the same
culture. He documented everything with film, photographs, and
meticulous records. He named the cancer virus 'Cryptocides
Virginia Livingston, in her papers, renamed it Progenitor Cryptocides.
Royal Rife was never even mentioned in her papers. In fact, Rife seldom
got credit for his monumental discoveries. He was a quiet, unassuming
scientist, dedicated to expanding his discoveries rather than to
ambition, fame, and glory. His distaste for medical politics (which he
could afford to ignore thanks to generous trusts set up by private
benefactors) left him at a disadvantage later, when powerful forces
attacked him. Coupled with the influence of the pharmaceutical industry
in purging his papers from medical journals, it is hardly surprising
that few have heard of Rife today.
Meanwhile, debate raged between those who had seen viruses changing
into different forms beneath Rife's microscopes, and those who had not.
Those who condemned without investigation, such as the influential Dr.
Thomas Rivers, claimed these forms didn't exist. Because his microscope
did not reveal them, Rivers argued that there was "no logical basis for
belief in this theory."
The same argument is used today in evaluating
many other 'alternative' medical treatments; if there is no precedent,
then it must not be valid. Nothing can convince a closed mind. Most had
never actually looked though the San Diego microscopes, as air travel in
the 1930's was uncomfortable, primitive, and rather risky. So, the
debate about the life cycle of viruses was resolved in favor of those
who never saw it (even modern electron microscopes show frozen images,
not the life cycle of viruses in process). Nevertheless, many scientists and doctors have since confirmed Rife's
discovery of the cancer virus and its pleomorphic nature, using
darkfield techniques, the Naessens microscope, and laboratory
Rife ignored the debate, preferring to concentrate on refining his
method of destroying these tiny killer viruses. He used the same
principle to kill them which made them visible: resonance. By
increasing the intensity of a frequency which resonated naturally with
these microbes, Rife increased their natural oscillations until they
distorted and disintegrated from structural stresses. Rife called this
frequency 'the mortal oscillatory rate,' or 'MOR', and it did no harm
whatsoever to the surrounding tissues.
used the principle of harmonics. This principle can be illustrated by using
an intense musical note to shatter a wine glass: the molecules of the
glass are already oscillating at some harmonic (multiple) of that
musical note; they are in resonance with it. Because everything else
has a different resonant frequency, nothing but the glass is destroyed.
There are literally hundreds of trillions of different resonant
frequencies, and every species and molecule has its very own.
took Rife many years until he discovered the frequencies which
specifically destroyed herpes, polio, spinal meningitis, tetanus,
influenza, and an immense number of other dangerous disease organisms. Rife also worked with the top scientists and doctors of his day, who also confirmed or endorsed various areas of his work.
included: Arthur Kendall (Director, Northwestern Medical School); Rufus Klein-Schmidt (President of USC); E.C. Rosenow, Sr. (longtime Chief of Bacteriology, Mayo
Clinic); Dr. Milbank Johnson (Director of the Southern California AMA); Whalen Morrison (Chief
Surgeon, Santa Fe Railway); George Fischer (Childrens Hospital, N.Y.);
Edward Kopps (Metabolic Clinic, La Jolla); and many others.
On November 20, 1931, forty-four of the nation's most respected medical
authorities honored Royal Rife with a banquet ... at the Pasadena estate of Dr. Milbank Johnson.
In 1934, the University of Southern California appointed a special medical
research committee to bring terminal cancer patients from Pasadena
County Hospital to Rife's San Diego Laboratory and clinic for
treatment. The team included doctors and pathologists assigned to
examine the patients – if still alive – in 90 days.
After the 90 days of
treatment, the committee concluded that 86.5% of the patients had been
completely cured. The treatment was then adjusted and the remaining
13.5% of the patients also responded within the next four weeks. The
total recovery rate using Rife's technology was 100%.
Suppression and Ridicule
But by 1939, almost all of these distinguished doctors and scientists
were denying that they had ever met Rife. What happened to make so many
brilliant men have complete memory lapses? It seems that news of Rife's
miracles with terminal patients had reached other ears. Remember our
hypothetical question at the beginning of this report: What would
happen if you discovered a potential cure for everything? You are now about to
first, a token
attempt was made to buy out Rife. Morris Fishbein, who had acquired the
entire stock of the American Medical Association [AMA] by 1934, sent an
attorney to Rife with 'an offer you can't refuse.' Rife refused. We
may never know the exact terms of this offer.
But we do know the terms
of an offer Fishbein made to Harry Hoxsey for control of his herbal
cancer remedy. Fishbein's associates would receive all profits for nine
years and Hoxsey would receive nothing. Then, if they were satisfied
that it worked, Hoxsey would receive 10% of the profits.
Hoxsey decided that he would rather continue to make the profits
himself. When Hoxsey turned Fishbein down, Fishbein used his immensely
powerful political connections to have Hoxsey arrested 125 times in a
period of 16 months. The charges (based on practice without a license)
were always thrown out of court, but the harassment drove Hoxsey insane. [see article in JAMA, the journal of the AMA, available here]
But Fishbein must have realized that this strategy would backfire with
Rife. First, Rife could not be arrested like Hoxsey for practicing
without a license. A trial on trumped-up charges would mean that
testimony supporting Rife would be introduced by prominent medical
authorities working with Rife. And the defense would undoubtedly take
the opportunity to introduce evidence such as the 1934 medical study
done with USC. The last thing in the world that the pharmaceutical
industry wanted was a public trial about a painless therapy that cured
100% of the terminal cancer patients and cost nothing to use but a
little electricity. It might give people the idea that they didn't need
And finally, Rife had spent decades accumulating meticulous evidence of
his work, including film and stop-motion photographs. No, different
tactics were needed.
The first incident was the gradual pilfering of components,
photographs, film, and written records from Rife's lab. The culprit was
never caught. Then, while Rife struggled to reproduce his
missing data (in a day when photocopies and computers were not
available), someone vandalized his precious virus microscopes. Pieces
of the 5,682 piece Universal microscope were stolen. Earlier, an arson
fire had destroyed the multi-million dollar Burnett Lab in New Jersey,
just as the scientists there were preparing to announce confirmation of
Rife's work. But the final blow came later, when police illegally
confiscated the remainder of Rife's 50 years of research.
in 1939, agents of
a family which controlled the drug industry assisted Philip Hoyland in
a frivolous lawsuit against his own partners in the Beam Ray
Corporation. This was the only company manufacturing Rife's frequency
instruments (Rife was not a partner). Hoyland lost, but his assisted
legal assault had the desired effect: the company was bankrupted by
legal expenses. And during the Great Depression, this meant that
commercial production of Rife's frequency instruments ceased
remember what a
universal cure meant to hospitals and research foundations? Doctors who
tried to defend Rife lost their foundations grants and hospital
privileges. On the other hand, big money was spent ensuring that
doctors who had seen Rife's therapy would forget what they saw. Almost
no price was too much to suppress it. Remember that, today, treatment
of a single cancer patient averages over $300,000. It's BIG business.
the Director of the Northwestern School of Medicine who worked with
Rife on the cancer virus, accepted almost a quarter of a million
dollars to suddenly 'retire' in Mexico. That was an exorbitant amount
of money in the Depression. Dr. George Dock, another prominent figure
who collaborated with Rife, was silenced with an enormous grant, along
with the highest honors the AMA could bestow. Between the carrots and
the sticks, everyone except Dr. Couche and Dr. Milbank Johnson gave up
Rife's work and went back to prescribing drugs.
finish the job, the
medical journals, supported almost entirely by drug company revenues
and controlled by the AMA, refused to publish any paper by anyone on
Rife's therapy. Therefore, an entire generation of medical students
graduated into practice without ever once hearing of Rife's
The magnitude of this crime eclipses every mass murder in
history. Cancer picks us off quietly. By 1960 the casualties from
this tiny virus exceeded the carnage of all the wars America ever
fought. In 1989, it was estimated that 40% of us will experience cancer
at some time in our lives. In Rife's lifetime, he had witnessed the progress of civilization from
horse-and-buggy travel to jet planes. In that same time, he saw the
epidemic of cancer increase from 1 in 24 Americans in 1905 to 1 in 3 in
1971 when he died.
also witnessed the
phenomenal growth of the American Cancer Society, the Salk Foundation,
and many others collecting hundreds of millions of dollars for diseases
that were cured long before in his own San Diego laboratories. In one
period, 176,500 cancer drugs were submitted for approval. Any that
showed 'favorable' results in only one-sixth of one percent of the
cases being studied could be licensed. Some of these drugs had a
mortality rate of 14-17%. When death came from the drug, not the
cancer, the case was recorded as a 'complete' or 'partial remission'
because the patient didn't actually die from the cancer.
conclusion reached by Rife was that his life-long labor and discoveries
had not only been ignored, but probably would be buried with him. At
that point, he ceased to produce much of anything and spent the last
third of his life seeking oblivion in alcohol. It dulled the pain and
his acute awareness of half a century of wasted effort – ignored –
while the unnecessary suffering of millions continued so that a vested
few might profit. And profit they did, and profit they do.
1971, Royal Rife died
from a combination of valium and alcohol at the age of 83. Perhaps his
continual exposure to his own Rife frequencies helped his body endure
abuse for so many years.
Modern Resurgence of Rife's Technology for Cancer Cures
was not the end of his electronic therapy. A few humanitarian doctors
and engineers reconstructed his frequency instruments and kept his
genius alive. Rife
technology became public knowledge again in 1986 with the publication
of The Cancer Cure That Worked, by Barry Lynes, and other material
about Royal Rife and his monumental work.
There is wide variation in the cost, design, and quality of the modern
portable Rife frequency research instruments available. Costs vary from
about $1200 to $3600 with price being no legitimate indicator of the
technical competence in the design of the instrument or performance of
the instrument. Some of the most expensive units have serious technical
limitations and are essentially a waste of money.
At the other extreme,
some researchers do get crude results from inexpensive simple,
unmodified frequency generators, but this is just as misguided as
spending too much money. Without the proper modifications, the basic
frequency generator gives only minimal and inconsistent results. Please
recall that the actual destruction of the viruses and bacteria is not
accomplished by the frequency displayed on these cheap generators, but
by certain shorter harmonics of that particular frequency which are
often blocked by the crudity of a cheap and rudimentary instrument
This very problem led Rife to ultimately abandon the 'ray tube' design
in favor of today's version. The newer technology applies the
frequencies and their harmonics to the body through the use of
hand-held, footplate, or stick-on electrodes. Proper frequency exposure
and flushing of the body with large amounts of clean, pure water is
critical to achieve the kind of results Rife got. These procedures are
fully explained in the manuals of the best units on the market. So, unless you would be satisfied with sporadic results for minor
conditions, it is suggested you use only the highest quality equipment
and only the proper, proven procedures in your personal research.
One day, the name of Royal Raymond Rife may ascend to its rightful
place as a giant of modern medical science. Until that time, his
fabulous technology remains available only to the people who have the
interest to seek it out. While perfectly legal for veterinarians to use
to save the lives of animals, Rife's brilliant frequency therapy
remains taboo to orthodox mainstream medicine because of the continuing
threat it poses to the international pharmaceutical medical monopoly
that controls the lives – and deaths – of the vast majority of the people on this planet.
