"... ... ..."
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. It is a fair statement that Rife practically developed bioelectric medicine
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. Most notable was millionaire Henry Timkin, of Timkin
roller bearing fame.
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, a microdissector, and a micromanipulator. When
you thoroughly understand Rife's achievements, you may well decide that he has the most gifted, versatile,
scientific mind in human history.
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 60,000 times their normal size. With this incredible microscope, Rife became the first
human being to actually see a live virus, and until quite recently, the Universal Microscope was the only one which
was able view live viruses.
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
"... ... .. "
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.
In reality, Royal Rife had identified the human cancer virus first...in 1920! Rife then 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 primordiales.'
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 heave 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...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 experiments. Rife also
worked with the top scientists and doctors of his day who also confirmed or endorsed various areas of his work.
They included: E.C. Rosenow, Sr. (longtime Chief of Bacteriology, Mayo Clinic); Arthur Kendall (Director,
Northwestern Medical School); Dr. George Dock (internationally-renowned); Alvin Foord (famous pathologist);
Rufus Klein-Schmidt (President of USC); R.T. Hamer (Superintendent, Paradise Valley Sanitarium; 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); Karl Meyer (Hooper Foundation, S.F.);
M. Zite (Chicago University); and many others.
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.
Today's Rife instruments use harmonics of the frequencies shown on the display screen. The wavelength of the
actual frequency shown (770hz, 880hz, etc.) is too long to do the job.
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.
It took Rife many years, working 48 hours at a time, until he discovered the frequencies which specifically
destroyed herpes, polio, spinal meningitis, tetanus, influenza, and an immense number of other dangerous
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
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%.
On November 20, 1931, forty-four of the nation's most respected medical authorities honored Royal Rife with a
banquet billed as The End To All Diseases at the Pasadena estate of Dr. Milbank Johnson.
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 cure for everything? You are now about to find out....
At first, a token attempt was made to buy out Rife. Morris Fishbein, who had acquired the entire stock of the
American Medical Association by 1934, sent an attorney to Rife with "an offer you can't refuse". Rife refused.
We many never know the exact terms of this offer.
But we do know the terms of the offer Fishbein made to Harry Hoxsey for control of his herbal cancer remedy.
Fishbein's associates would receive all profits for nine years and Hoxey would receive nothing. Then, if they were
satisfied that it worked, Hoxsey would begin to receive 10% of the profits. Hoxsey decided that he would rather
continue to make all 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.
But Fishbein must have realized that this strategy would backfire with Rife. First, Rife could not be arrested like
Hoxsey for practising 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 drugs.
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.
Then 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 completely.
And 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.

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
(Actual estimates show that, by 2025, 1 person out of 2 will die from cancer)
He 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. In reality, it was a race to see which
would kill the patient first: the drug or the disease.
"... ... ..."
In 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.
Fortunately, his death 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.
