Biography
Below I provide a brief "curriculum vitae" of my life's work. I composed a far more extensive bio in 2015 to address the absurd lengths to which the medical industrial complex went in attempting to tar my reputation on Wikipedia. What appears below is sufficient for present purposes.

Overview
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 seven 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. through repeated litigation); Meditopia® (2004-2012: an ongoing project and free online read); The Gospel of 2012 According to Ayahuasca, The Joys of Psychopathocracy, Living on the Precipice, and Black Salve -- all of which are detailed on this site's book page, of which all four of these last books are available for sale on this site's online store.
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 operated as Global Preservatives, Inc. (globalpreservatives.com) before closing. This company was the assignee of my primary U.S. Patent Application (No. 10782405) representing this area of my work (see also). Previous efforts in preservative research can be viewed at Natura Scio.
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®.
