Letter to Secretary SebeliusIn this letter to Secretary Sebelius John Ossipinsky explains how missed science about the lymphatic system is hurting our nation.

Dear Secretary Sebelius:
I am contacting you to ask for your help with a serious national health problem, that is hurting most of us, based on missed science about the lymphatic system. It is especially hurting infants with diseases like colic, cystic fibrosis, Muscular Dystrophy, learning disabilities, Asperger's and autism. This missed science also plays a major role in why there is such a problem with obesity in our nation and among our children. The problem is missed published science about the lymphatic system (a sewage treatment plant for the body) and an important part of the immune system response. I am a retired NYC Firefighter and Lymphedema therapist living in Surprise, Arizona. Over the past six years I have contacted the government, politicians, NIH, Surgeon General's office, and medical schools to explain that missed science about acid and its negative effect on the lymphatic system, is not understood in our idea of disease and attaining good health.
The lymphatic system plays a major role in removing excess fluid and proteins (parts of dead cells and fibrin) from the body. When the body is even slightly acidic, the tiny lymphatic vessels constrict and cellular waste builds in the body. You will see later in this letter how many of our diseases have to do with excess protein building in specific parts of the body. I have not stopped trying to contact the government, NIH, medical researchers, as well as leading doctors, because this MISSED SCIENCE, that an acidic pH slows or stops the lymphatic system (our body's sewage treatment plant) is allowing proteins to build in the body. This is hurting all of us in some way, but it is especially hurting infants and children.
The lymphatic system is so important that if it did not recover the protein-rich liquid (a large part of which the venous system cannot recover), the body would probably develop major systemic edemas (protein loss), auto-intoxification and die within 24 - 48 hours (Guyton A.C., 1985). Experiments have shown that the complete blockage of all the lymphatics of the leg of a dog brings death in a few weeks (Clodius L., Altorfer L., 1977).READ COMPLETE ARTICLE...
