EDTA and anthrax
Anthrax is the terrorist weapon of choice. Unlike infectious
plague and smallpox which can travel across borders and kill
unintended targets, anthrax (shown at right) kills only where it is
Anthrax kills by releasing two toxins into the body, they
are called edema toxin and lethal toxin.1
It is not the anthrax itself which is deadly, but these two toxins
it produces. If you could neutralize these two toxins, you could
live long enough for the antibiotics to work.
Antibiotics are not enough!
To be effective against pulmonary Anthrax, antibiotics must be given
before symptoms occur. The toxins that Anthrax produces are so
deadly, that by the time the victim is symptomatic, it is too
late. The toxins will kill the victim before the antibiotics have
time to act. The key to surviving Anthrax after symptoms manifest
is to neutralize these two toxins. Destroy the toxins, and you may
be able to survive long enough for antibiotics to be effective.
Unfortunately, you may not know you have Anthrax until you are
already symptomatic, so unless you want to be continuously on
antibiotics, you may not be able to keep from getting Anthrax. Even
if you were to stay on antibiotics (which has side effects of its
own), future Anthrax strains might be antibiotic resistant.
Anthrax and the immune system
Anthrax toxins turn off the immune system.
If you can neutralize the toxins, your own immune system may be able
to destroy the Anthrax just like any infection. This is important
since 1) you may not have access to antibiotics, and 2) it may be an
antibiotic resistant strain.
Anthrax compared to AIDS
Edema toxin, one of the two toxins
produced by Anthrax inhibits the neutrophils,2 the white
blood cells responsible for attacking bacteria. Anthrax is a
bacteria. Thus Anthrax is like AIDS, it inhibits the very part of
the immune system required to destroy it. Knock out the Edema
toxin and your immune system may be able to fight the infection
Anthrax compared to Cancer
Lethal toxin, the other toxin produce
by Anthrax, stimulates the macrophages (white blood cells) to
release tumor necrosis factor a and interleukin-1b,
which are partly responsible for sudden death in systemic anthrax.3
Tumor necrosis factor (TNF) is how the body fights cancer (and
bacterial toxins). Unfortunately, TNF has the side effects of
cachexia (wasting away) and toxic shock. Thus while trying to fight
the Anthrax, our body inadvertently creates the very substances (TNF)
that cause us to go into shock and die.
Thus Anthrax is like AIDS and
How to destroy the toxins
The two toxins Anthrax
makes, Edema Toxin and Lethal Toxin, both have an
Achilles heel that we can take advantage of. They both need certain
minerals to work. Let's look at them more closely.
Edema toxin has a protein called calmodulin
4 in it. Calmodulin has been called the "gatekeeper
molecule" in biochemistry. The mineral calcium is required for this
"gate" to operate. Without calcium, Calmodulin cannot work.
Without Calmodulin, Edema Toxin may become
inactive.* Calmodulin molecule shown at right.
Remove the calcium and the Edema
toxin cannot operate normally.
Perhaps the reason that the
vast majority of the deaths in the Russian Anthrax exposure were
older people is that as we age, calcium builds up inside the cells.
It may be that the younger people did not have enough calcium build
up inside their cells to allow the calmodulin to work.
Lethal Toxin has a zinc-bearing enzyme
in it.5 This enzyme absolutely requires zinc to
function. Without zinc, Lethal toxin cannot work.** Metalloenzyme
molecule shown at right.
Remove the Zinc and the Lethal
toxin cannot operate!
So, how do you remove the
calcium and zinc?
EDTA can remove both zinc and calcium from
the bloodstream quickly and safely. EDTA, a synthetic amino acid
and food preservative, has been used for the last 50 years to
remove lead and other heavy metals from the bloodstream as a
treatment for heavy metal poisoning. Luckily for us, EDTA, along
with removing the heavy metals, also removes calcium and zinc. There
is every reason to believe that EDTA, (shown at right) can remove
the calcium and zinc from Edema Toxin and Lethal Toxin as well. In
this way, EDTA may act as an anti-toxin / antidote.
EDTA can remove calcium and zinc
from the bloodstream and the toxins!
How can EDTA be administered?
EDTA can be taken 3 ways: orally,
intravenously and by suppository.
administration: Oral administration only has a 5% absorption
rate. This will not be sufficient to absorb enough calcium and
zinc to neutralize the toxins. At the height of an Anthrax
infection there can be 100,000,000 anthrax cells per cubic
millimeter of blood.3
Intravenous: This is a great way to get EDTA
into the body but most of us do not know how to administer an IV
drip. Even if you could, you would have to be on that intravenous
drip for at least 72 hours straight. Also, IV bags don't travel
This is the best way to take EDTA. It is highly absorbed (90+%),
portable, and can be self administered or given to children. It
can also be taken every one to two hours during a crisis to maintain
the low calcium and zinc blood levels required to inactivate the two
Make sure that you get Magnesium Di-Potassium
EDTA suppositories, not a calcium based EDTA suppository. A calcium
based EDTA will not remove calcium and therefore cannot effect
Edema toxin. Magnesium Di-Potassium EDTA is the preferred type
of EDTA suppository.
How do I know if I have
The toxins cause nonspecific flu-like symptoms: mild
fever, malaise, fatigue, muscle pain, dry cough, and at times a
sensation of chest oppression. This phase can last for several days
or as little as 24 hours, and can be followed by a period with no
symptoms. The second phase develops suddenly with severe shortness
of breath, plunging blood pressure and shock. This phase typically
lasts less than 24 hours and usually ends in death despite therapy,
due to the high number of toxin-producing organisms that have
developed (if you haven't neutralized the toxins of course).
By the time you have pulmonary
Anthrax symptoms, antibiotics alone cannot save you.
Anthrax kills by the production of
These toxins are dependant on
calcium and zinc to function.
EDTA can safely remove both
calcium and zinc.
Inactivation of these two toxins
may give you the time required for antibiotics to work, even if you
are already symptomatic.
EDTA can be taken preventatively
without side effects.
EDTA has other benefits such as
removing heavy metals.
EDTA can be administered at home
as a suppository, can be carried in a purse and is suitable for
children, and the elderly.
* Edema toxin consists of edema factor,
which is a calmodulin-dependent adenylate cyclase. Calmodulin upon
the binding of Ca2++ undergoes a conformational change needed for
its biological activity . EDTA can remove Ca2++ both from the
bloodstream and tissues, and may also be able to remove Ca2++ from
the calmodulin. Thus removing the Ca2++ makes the calmodulin
biologically inactive or less active.6
** Lethal Toxin consists of lethal factor, which
is a zinc metalloprotease.
*** Normal dosage is one
suppository every two or three days for heavy metal poisoning. One
suppository every two hours may irritate the rectum, but the
discomfort would certainly be preferable to symptomatic anthrax.
are a number of things that must be addressed with symptomatic
Anthrax. The main issues are in bold with some ideas about what
might work to deal with them. In many ways, Anthrax kills the same
way a bee sting might kill someone allergic to bee venom. It is not
necessarily the toxins which kill, but the body's reaction to the
toxins. If you can turn off the reaction, you may live long enough
for the antibiotic to work.
