& Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
The following document is from a worn photocopy provided to us by Walter
Letter to the Editor from Letter for Doctors July 1991
With particular interest I read the article by Drs. Judyth Reichenberg-Ullman
and Robert Ullman on Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (TLfD January '91 p.28-29).
Also, I saw around Easter, Larry King's CNN show on chronic fatigue syndrome.
We have shown over the last years that there is a dramatic increase of the
adeno- and alveolar lung cancer incidence in those countries where catalytic
platinum converters are mounted into the exhaust tubes of automobiles.
Every automobile loses more than 5X10 (to the 13th) atoms of platinum per
mile, into the atmosphere. Upon inhalation, platinum atoms may be energized
to become most dangerous radicals.
The voltage of the tension field of lung alveolar cell membranes is in the
range of 90KV/cm: enough to render the platinum atom a radical. We have now
published an extensive monograph on the problem. (1)
A few weeks ago the French-Belgian press described the catalytic converter
catastrophe as of 'a Chernobyl dimension.'
In addition to the emitting of platinum and of harmful EMF energies by the
platinum catalyst, the mufflers of such automobiles emit a series of toxic
gases produced by the converter (not by diesels or by gasoline motors without
These gases are:
In the presence of heat MTBE and ZDTP would react and form potentially
extremely toxic agents like phosphoric acid esters (nerve gas, anti-
We are indebted to several department directors with Volkswagon, Mercedes-
Benz, Citroen and Renault who have supplied me with the necessary information.
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is primarily observed in the USA, in Japan (where it
is called "man killing syndrome"), in Taiwan, in certain congested city areas
of Australia, and more recently, in Germany and in Switzerland where catalysts
in automobiles were mounted only recently. Again, we see a correlation
between the disease epidemiology and the distribution of catalysts in
Since chronic fatigue syndrome is - in the USA - only observed since about 4
years ago it is very likely that the reaction product out of MTBE and ZDTP,
may be together with H2S, accounts for the major causative factor of CFS.
MTBE and ZDTP were increased as additives to fuel and about 6 or 7 years ago
in order to improve the specific motor efficiency and to redress the "float
The recovery of the patients, once they stay at home for a longer time also
indicates that there might be an aerogeni factor which account for CFS.

- a) Cyanide and cyanic acid;
- b) Hydrogen-sulfur (H2S) which is an extremely harmful catalase poison,
which inactivates e.g. the glutathion system needed for the inactivation of
radicals and for the prevention of malignisation;
- c) Phosgen (COCl2), an extremely dangerous combat gas of WWI which is
highly aggressive against lung membranes. Whenever there are chlorine
residues in the fuel the formation of phosgen has to be anticipated,
- d) Compounds resulting from the interaction of MTBE (Methy-tart-butyl-
ether) and ZDTP (Zinc-dithic-phosphate). MTBE is needed to replace lead as an
anti-pinging additive in the fuel. ZDTP is an essential additive in motor
oils in order to prevent oil chain breakage and loss of lubrication potential.
