The 2019 budget for taxpayer-funded medical research in the United States administered by the National Institute of Health is $37 billion annually.
Here are the estimated budgets for just a few of the topics they propose to invest research dollars into in fiscal year 2019:
1. Anti-microbial resistance: $478,000,000
2. Autism: $240,000,000
3. Autoimmmune disease: $806,000,000
4. Cannabinoid research: $144,000,000
5. Food allergies: $76,000,000
6. Genetics: $8,428,000,000
7. AIDS vaccine: $545,000,000
In the normal course of events, the results of these public investments in medical research will be appropriated by pharmaceutical companies in order to develop products for sale.
Note that not one penny has been budgeted by the National Institute of Health for the research into the mechanisms behind the therapeutic use of chlorine dioxide.
Chlorine Dioxide as a possible adjunct to metabolic treatment
The paper, written by French oncologist Laurent Schwartz, MD describes two cases of patients who obtained remission of advanced cancer (pancreas and prostrate respectively) following a course of chlorine dioxide.
A summary of the paper is available here for download:
The following are a thumbnail descriptions of research projects that would help advance the understanding of chlorine dioxide as a therapeutic agent:
1. Explore whether and at what concentration a chlorine dioxide solution is able to transform sulfur-containing molecules into sulfate.
Some of the small molecules that might be able to undergo transformation into sulfate nonenzymatically by chlorine dioxide include taurine, hydrogen sulfide gas, thiocyanate (SCN) and dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO).
2. Test changes in urine glyphosate levels before an after consumption of chlorine dioxide solution over various time periods and at various dose levels
3. Test saliva for glyphosate level
4. Test changes in saliva glyphosate levels before an after consumption of chlorine dioxide solution over various time periods and at various dose levels
5. Apply a chlorine dioxide treatment to a sample of saliva or urine, and measure the glyphosate contamination level in the sample before and after the treatment.
