I have worked extensively in "designer foods," as well as alternative medicine and nutrition products since 1981. I graduated from L.A. Valley College ('75); am a U.S. Navy veteran ('75-'78), and the author of four books, Lumen: Food for a New Age (1986, an interdisciplinary work on vegetarianism and the role of meat analogs, with over 45,000 copies in print); MLM Fraud (1991, on corruption in the multi-level marketing industry and the tools to identify the work of its perpetrators -- since banned in the U.S.); Meditopia® (2004-2012: an ongoing project and free online read); and The Gospel of 2012 According to Ayahuasca (another free online read).
In 1984 I founded Consumer Express, which later became Nutrition for Life International (briefly traded on the NASDAQ stock exchange as "NFLI"). Later I founded Lumen Foods (1986), and its internet site (soybean.com, 1995), which currently manufacturers the best-selling vegetarian "meat" snack on the North American continent, Stonewall's Jerquee. My family successfully ran the company from its inception until its sale in March, 2007. I invented a food-grade preservative in 2003 and built a manufacturing plant in Lake Charles, Louisiana, to produce and commercialize the discovery. This facility currently operates as Global Preservatives, Inc. (globalpreservatives.com), the assignee of my primary U.S. Patent Application No. 10782405) representing this area of my work (see also). My current efforts in preservative research can be viewed at Natura Scio (www.naturascio.com).
In 1995 I created Alpha Omega Labs (herbhealers.com / altcancer.com), which became a provider of over 300 alternative health products with 14 distributors around the world, before its closure by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration in September, 2003.
It successfully reopened in Ecuador in June, 2008.
Alpha Omega Labs is best known for Cansema® -- an effective cure for skin cancer, based on suppressed formulary information dating back to the 1850's. Over a 20 year period, Alpha Omega Labs has been responsible for curing thousands of cancer cases. The corruption surrounding the circumstances of its closure (from 2003 to 2008) is one of the topics in Meditopia®.

News & Updates: May 2017
May 8, 2017 --- Friends were stunned last month when I agreed to be interviewed by Dr. Mehmet Oz in April (2017) for an episode of Dr. Oz that airs on May 10. There is no associate of mine who didn't know that this was "ambush journalism" in the making. In a comprehensive rebuttal, I provide my justification, along with a refutation of orthodoxy's arguments against this ancient naturopathic practice.
