There's no way of overstating the importance of this episode, so we're just gonna lay it out there: Royal Rife invented a cancer-curing death ray and it's being kept from you by ... somebody. Sort of. Maybe. Don't worry, Dr. Sydnee and Justin are blowing this one wide open.

Royal Rife

I would have liked to have heard your 15 part series on Dr. Royal Rife. I understand
that your show is set up on the side of "Fun". I believe that he deserves a closer look at his achievements. There are a two headline articles on 14 people that were terminally diagnosed with cancer and were cured by his procedure using his Frequency Generator that made Headline News on a National level. His life was destroyed simply because he refused the powers that be ( at that time), use his invention for commercial gain. I simply think you had a Good Topic, but before you even started into your subject matter your host cut you off by judging the website that you used because of the advertisements that were found on the same page. From that point on the whole segment was broadcasted as a joke. With that said, I feel that I too will be made a mockery of. What I see is a man that did notable things in his life, whose only motive was to help. My input probably will not mean much, but when you do your show don't be so easily influenced away from your original subject matter, before 3 minutes passed your 15 part series ended into a 30 minute comedy session. So much could have been said in honor of his achievements and his life ( which wasn't bad for someone born in 1888). Thank you for your time. Robbie Robinson

"ray beam"

I found it kind of funny that there were several jokes made about the ray beam that he designed that was supposedly used to cure cancer and how impossible that was. As described, it sounds a lot like a laser. Energy was concentrated and shot through a lens. Yup, that's a laser... which IS used in the treatment of cancer.

I have no illusion that Rife designed a laser and was using it for cancer treatment but he was onto something and the future would show that his approach works.

Viruses

Quick comment... Viruses aren't alive and you guys kept refering to them as if they were.

Check out the TWiV podcast for more details on viruses.

Viruses & SEM

Regardless of whether viruses are considered alive or not-alive, their point is that to get the resolution required to see them, they *need* to be coated in gold and put in a vacuum for SEM/TEM. This stops them from moving around and being functional/viable, even if you don't want to call their previous state "alive"

*asterisks are because now there is a technique called Environmental Scanning Electron Microscopy (ESEM) that allows us to observe cells and viruses and perform experiments in-situ, without vacuum and with very little preparation.

We have some experts on SEM and E-SEM on our materials science podcast at: http://laserpodcast.com and plan to do a review show about these techniques in the near future.
