One in Fifty Americans Has Hepatitis-C!
August 21, 2002


dear lloyd,

If you would like to publish the attached article you are welcome to.

This article is worth reading. I disagree with much of it. I am publishing it because people need to know the devastating facts about the hepatitis c epidimic. Hepatitis C is the largest epidemic in the history of man. The Hepatitis C epidemic is several times larger than the Aids problem. Check the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website for statistics on aids in the US. Three Quarters of one million people in the US have been diagnosed with Aids from the beginning.

We need help from celebrities and politicians that care, not ones that are bought by the pharmaceutical companies.


One in Fifty Americans Has Hepatitis-C!
by Roger Mason

People have been asking me about hepatitis-C because two per cent of the American population is infected with it. This is in ADDITION to all the other types of hepatitis.

Even worse, four per cent- one in twenty five- people in the world have hepatitis-C. That's right, we have about 250 million people in the world with hepatitis-C, plus all the other six types we know about so far.

There is four times as much hepatitis-C as AIDS, yet AIDS gets all the press, all the attention and most all the research money due to political influence. We cannot even define what a virus is much less treat a virus. That's right, we have almost no anti-viral drugs and we're in the Dark Ages regarding knowledge and treatment of viruses of any type. It was only identified in 1989 and blood transfusions were the main cause as no one could test for the virus.

We just don't know the actual statistics in most countries, but we can estimate the minimum infection rate. It is estimated that ten per cent of black American men are infected. At least ten per cent of male homosexuals are infected. It is also estimated that China's one billion plus population has at least 10 per cent of them infected with some type of hepatitis. Some African countries have a 20 per cent rate- that we know about. This is an epidemic folks.

You can be infected for life and never know it- but still infect others. You can carry the virus for decades and never come down with symptoms and die of old age. You can end up with cirrhosis or liver cancer and die early. Nine out of ten infected people have no idea they are carrying it!

Twenty per cent of people don't have a clue as to how they even got infected. You didn't read all this in your morning newspaper did you? This is a viral inflammation of the liver and it's transferred by blood contact. Half of chronic liver disease is due to hepatitis-C. This is the leading cause of liver transplants. That infective blood can be months old dry brown blood and not just fresh and red. It is not easy to get it thru sexual activity, but you are playing Russian roulette here. Sharing toothbrushes and razors are very efficient ways of transmission.

There are seven types of hepatitis known now and surely we'll keep finding more in the future. Let's discuss them very briefly so you'll know the situation basically. Hepatitis-A is "only" from the fecal to oral route, but this means that immigrant who works in the restaurant you eat at at doesn't wash his hands in the bathroom can give it to you just like dysentery. Or you can eat unwashed fruits and vegetables. Fortunately this is usually a short term infection and goes away on its own. Hepatitis-B can also go away on its own, but you can also remain chronic or you can even die from it. Hepatitis-D can only hitchhike using hepatitis-B as a carrier. Sexual intercourse is a common route and the infection is usually chronic. Hepatitis-E occurs in Third World countries through the the fecal route like hepatitis-A. Due to our high immigration rates and lack of control this is becoming more and more common here. After an acute infection this usually clears up. Hepatitis-F is "inferred to exist". That's all I can find out about F at this time. Hepatitis-G is the latest to be discovered in 1995. Little is known about it at this time. I just can't wait for hepatitis H to be discovered.

Since almost no one gets an appointment for a hepatitis screen and you can carry it for decades with no symptoms, what are the symptoms when you do get an active infection? Flu-like symptoms, liver pain, indigestion, irritable bowel syndrome, joint pain, night sweats, depression, mood swings, fatigue, reactions to alcohol, abdominal bloating, frequent urination, loss of appetite, itchy skin, aversion to eating fat, diarrhea, headaches, brain fog, poor sleep, chest pains, edema, puffy face, blood sugar disorders, lymph swellings (armpits, neck, groin), dizziness, numbness in hands and feet, eyesight problems and such signs as this.

What can you do to avoid this? Don't do anything where you would come in contact with old or new blood. Know who you are being intimate with. Do not share razors. All acupuncturists use disposable needles. All tattoo parlors are licensed by the state health department.

What can you do if you're infected? Go to the doctor to get various diagnostic tests. Do NOT get a biopsy under any circumstances. Do NOT take interferon, ribavirin or any other "wonder drugs". Once you are diagnosed with any liver infection- whether it is hepatitis or not- get as far away from the medical profession as you can. Is all the doctors talk about is "interferon, interferon, interferon.." even though it is a dangerous and toxic drug that has minimal benefit. Doing research on this was very depressing because it seemed every third abstract was on interferon. You must change your diet and lifestyle. This is a liver infection. The liver breaks down fats, processes proteins and metabolizes drugs. The worst thing you can do is drink alcohol. Other than vanilla extract or cooking sherry in Chinese dishes you can not have one single drink ever. You must get off all prescription drugs. You shouldn't be on prescription drugs in the first place as there is always a natural alternative to synthetic poisons. Recreational drugs have to go as most all of these are metabolized by the liver, especially cocaine, ecstasy, opiates, amphetamines and depressants. You must eat a low fat diet and no more animal products. This means no more red meat at all or even poultry. No eggs. No milk or dairy products even the low-fat and no-fat varieties (milk products contain lactose and all adults are allergic to lactose) You can eat 10 per cent low-fat seafood, but stay away from high fat fish such as salmon, tuna, swordfish, catfish, shark, mackerel, herring, etc. Cod, scallops, crab, shrimp, sole, flounder and others are good choices. Minimal vegetable oil and no more avocados. If the idea of giving up animal foods and fats is too much for you then go ahead and die of cirrhosis or liver cancer.

What can you eat? Whole grains, beans, vegetables, salads (low fat dressings), and local fruits (better than tropical fruits). You will be on a low fat, low protein, high complex carbohydrate, high fiber, low calorie diet, but you will not be hungry at all. Eat as little as possible by eating foods high in nutrition but low in calories as mentioned above. Fast one day a week on water from dinner to dinner to give your liver a rest. Fast two days a month, if you can, to give your liver a bigger rest. At first you may experience side effects from fasting due to poisons being eliminated; these will stop. If you really want to get well quickly find a health resort and go for a one week water fast and you'll experiences miracles.

What about supplements? CoQ10 200 mg for a year and then 100 mg maintenance.NAC 600 mg a day has good research behind it for liver infection. Beta-sitosterol 300 mg a day. Take Total Minerals to get the 13 minerals you need (since no one claimed the $1,000 for finding a better mineral supplement). Flax oil 1 gram a day and keep this refrigerated. Soy isoflavones 40 mg a day. L-glutamine 1 gram in the AM and 1 gram in the PM (this will temporarily spike your growth hormone levels as well). Quercitin 250 mg is a great antioxidant. Curcumin 500 mg is another powerful antioxidant. Vitamin D 800 IU a day. Vitamin E 400 IU a day. Acidophilus 3 billion units and keep this refrigerated. FOS 750 mg a day or even twice a day. Beta glucan 400 mg for a year and then 200 mg maintenance. DIM 200 mg a day. Milk thistle two capsules a day of a good brand, but only for six months and then stop as it will no longer be effective. Do NOT take any Chinese, Ayurvedic or other "magical" liver formulas or supplements as you can actually get worse. An herb that will save my life could make you sick and vice versa. It would be nice to recommend golden seal root, Oregon grape root, barberry, Fringe tree and other traditional liver tonics but this would be guesswork. What about hormones? If you are over 40 be sure to take 3 mg of melatonin at night only. You can test your melatonin with saliva at 3:00 AM after using this for a few months. Take 50 mg of pregnenolone daily for men, but women should only take this about 4 times a week. You can now test your pregnenolone levels with saliva. Use transdermal progesterone cream both men and women (men only need an eighth teaspoon). Do NOT take DHEA or testosterone without testing. Take a saliva or blood test and supplement only if you are low. Yes, women need healthy testosterone levels, but not high levels. Androstenedione 50 mg (men) or 3% natural testosterone cream (1% women) will raise your levels of testosterone safely. Tribulus and other supplements are useless frauds. You can now test your T3 and T4 thyroid hormones with a saliva kit and you must treat these SEPARATELY. If you are low only in T4 take only the T4. If you are low only in the T3 take only the T3. Fortunately the prescription thyroid hormones are bioidentical and have no side effects when used in the proper amounts. You probably can't afford $4,000 a year for prescription growth hormone and ALL the growth hormone supplements you see advertised are FRAUDS! They are all useless- all of them. The only way to raise your GH is injecting 30 IU of real rhGH every month. I like the glucose tolerance test to see if your insulin in working well. The blood sugar tests do NOT tell you if you have insulin resistance which is another Western epidemic.

Again, get as far away from the doctors and their toxic interferon as you can. DIET IS EVERYTHING, supplements and hormones are very powerful when you are eating well, fasting is the most powerful healing method known to man. Exercise is also important. as this keeps the blood flowing thru the liver so it can heal better. Taking a half hour walk a day will do it. Lose weight if you need to and lower your cholesterol until you get it down to the 150 level (even genetically high cholesterol can be kept down under 200 very easily). The doctors can't help you after you are diagnosed. You must treat yourself and you must do this with diet and lfiestyle more than anything else.
