The makers of Cellfood allege that Congress passed the "Deuterium Freedom Act" of 1985. I wondered if you could tell me if there is such an Act.

The law appears to be fictitious. In fact, some sources even doubt that Edward Storey, who supposedly invented Cellfood, exists. Cellfood is based on the premise that cancer and other diseases are caused by oxygen deficiency at the cellular level. According to the Sloan-Kettering Cancer Institute: This product has been offered for sale via the internet and health food stores based on the unproven theory that cancer, infections, HIV, and degenerative diseases are caused by oxygen deficiency at the cellular level. These claims are based on pseudo-scientific explanations of physical phenomena and biochemical activities. None of the statements made by the company are supported by credible scientific evidence. Oxygen is not likely to be absorbed through the gastrointestinal tract when taken orally. The American Cancer Society urges cancer patients not to seek treatment with hyperoxygenation therapies. In addition, the Federal Trade Commission recently brought a lawsuit to stop the marketing of a similar "stabilized oxygen" product.

THERE IS NO SUCH ACT THAT WAS PASSED BY CONGRESS. THEY ALSO CLAIM EVERETT L STOREY WAS A TWO TIME NOBEL LAUREATE, AND THAT HE WAS A DOCTOR, AND THAT HE CURED HIMSELF OF CANCER, ALL LIES. NOTHING MORE THAN BAD AND FALSE ADVERTISING.
