The Hidden Cause of Cancer and Autoimmune Diseases

by Walter Last

For nearly a century we had increasingly strong evidence for a common microbial cause of cancer and autoimmune diseases but now we also have visual proof. A newly developed research microscope can show us in great detail what happens in the blood of individuals who develop these diseases. What it shows is that the key for understanding their cause and cure is the rise, or perhaps better the uprising, of an endogenous microbe in the blood.

Based on the work of Louis Pasteur in the late 19th century the scientific community adopted the concept of monomorphism. This means that microbes always maintain their basic shape as virus, bacterium or fungus. The term pleomorphism, on the other hand, as coined by the French chemist and biologist Antoine Béchamp (1816–1908), refers to the ability of microbes to change from one form into another, similar to a caterpillar changing into a butterfly.

Historical Evidence

While a causal correlation between cancer and microbes has been shown only in a few rare or animal tumours, several independent researchers have reported the proliferation of certain microbes in all cancer patients. One of the first was the German professor of zoology and microbiology Günther Enderlein who described in 1925 the different stages of a microbe that is normally present in the blood as tiny colloidal protein units. 

These protein units appear to originate from the natural breakdown of cellular components and may be essential for healthy blood. In degenerative diseases, especially cancer and autoimmune diseases, but also Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia, these protein units grow into increasingly higher bacterial forms and finally into fungi. Conventionally these forms are called Enderlein structures and are the basis of Live Blood Analysis as presently used in natural therapy. 

Independently, mostly without knowing of each other's work, several other researchers - including Royal Raymond Rife, Wilhelm Reich, Virginia Livingston-Wheeler, Alan Cantwell and Gaston Naessens - have described the same phenomenon.  Orthodoxy, however, has a dogma that says microbes always have the same form and cannot change from viruses into bacteria and fungi. This is because orthodox microbiologists commonly observe dead stained microbes in dead tissue, or live ones for short periods, instead of live microbes in live tissue at very high magnification over long periods. 

Of special interest are experiments of Dr Livingston-Wheeler who injected cultures of pleomorphic organisms into mice. When small amounts were injected then an autoimmune disease developed but higher doses produced tumours or cancer. Accordingly these cancer-forming microbes have often been called cancer viruses or cancer microbes.


The growth cycle of pleomorphics includes a stage as cell-wall-deficient microbes or CWD. These may arise endogenously within our body or arrive from the outside as mycoplasma. Orthodox microbiology does not recognise that CWD can arise endogenously but mycoplasma are known since 1898 as the smallest group of bacteria. The term "myco" indicates fungus-like properties while "plasma" points to the soft shell without a cell wall. They are actually living particles of bacterial nucleic acid and are regarded as being parasites in our body. 

Mycoplasma or their spores are so small that, like viruses, they go through bacterial filters and may contaminate blood used for transfusions. Often mycoplasma infections remain symptomless until one suffers a traumatic event or when health deteriorates for some other reason. Because of the missing cell wall mycoplasma do not respond to most antibiotics. Commonly mycoplasma infections are associated with the presence of other pathogenic microbes and parasites. 

Of special interest are presently the microbes associated with Lyme disease which can naturally originate from tick bites. The bacteria that cause Lyme disease, the spiral-shaped Borrelia, have been shown to exist in a bacterial as well as in a mycoplasma form and as spores. They also can hide from the immune system by using markers of normal body cells.

Modern Lyme disease started in 1975 as an epidemic in the town of Lyme, Connecticut, close to a biological warfare research laboratory. US government scientists hold a patent on behalf of the US Army for the crystalline mycoplasma fermentans. This semi-synthetic species appears to be much more dangerous than the natural variety.

Mycoplasma fermentans is an important agent in several modern diseases which suddenly appeared in epidemic form such as AIDS, Lyme disease, Gulf War Syndrome, and Morgellons disease. Various mycoplasma species are associated with pneumonia, bladder infections, endocrine dysfunctions, gastro-intestinal distress, and other conditions. A key problem with mycoplasma is their disruptive influence on cholesterol and other sterols, and even worse is the toxic effect of the Borrelia spirochete on our lipoproteins, thereby wrecking our fat metabolism.

The microbes of Lyme disease may trigger hundreds of different symptoms and have now been shown to mimic most chronic diseases, especially chronic fatigue conditions, fibromyalgia, and autoimmune diseases in general, but also mental conditions such as schizophrenia, depression, and Alzheimer's disease. Some of these, including Parkinson's disease, could be cured by eliminating the mycoplasma infestation (

The new Microscope

A new concept in optical microscopy is the grayfield method as developed by Kurt Olbrich ( This allows one to see detailed structures that are otherwise not even visible with conventional phase contrast microscopy. Now it is possible to observe the decomposition of live blood or the pleomorphic changes from spores or viral forms to bacteria and fungi in diseased blood.

Previous researchers of pleomorpic processes were restricted to a magnification of about 2000 times and a resolution of 200 nm while this method allows magnifications of up to 30,000 times and resolutions of less than 100 nm with great depth of focus in natural colours. Therefore everything can now be seen in much greater detail, and even be filmed. Orthodox microbiologists have used conventional analytical methods and theories to prove that the observed Enderlein structures are dead protein aggregates, but if they would instead use the Olbrich method and film the development and movement of these entities then they would be unable to defend their dogma.

I recommend that you watch these two videos: runs for 22:34 minutes and shows the activity and development of pleomorphics in the blood. A longer video made earlier and of lesser quality but showing additional interesting facts is at (50:50 minutes). Disregard the scientific details of the explanations, and especially the difficult-to-understand names of the various microbes and processes, and just focus on what you see. Even watch it all a second time to let it better sink in.

Also see for detailed drawings and descriptions of the development cycle of these pleomorphic microbes. In the head of these club-shaped microbes one can see new spores or viruses evolving, and when the whole structure reaches a certain size the head explodes and releases a new batch of virus-sized particles into the blood. Immune cells or phagocytes gobble up these virus forms, but if there are too many they just continue to develop inside the phagocytes into club-shaped forms. These eventually break out again with large heads full of viruses that they release into the blood.

The Nature of Pleomorphics

These videos show that healthy blood is clean with well-formed red blood cells, also called erythrocytes. In addition there is a faintly perceptible background structure of tiny globules with a single tail. During an acute infection some of these globules grow much bigger and develop a second tail, but after the infection has cleared up they disappear again. If the body is generally more unhealthy or in a so-called pre-cancerous condition then these structures remain permanently visible as round or elongated club-shaped forms.

An interesting phenomenon is the movement of these globules in and out of erythrocytes. Pleomorphics live mainly on our blood sugar, and when it is high they are mainly outside in the plasma but with low blood sugar they move back into the erythrocytes where they find more food. Then after eating sweet food they come back out again.

As the immune system continues to deteriorate fungus-like forms with long threads develop and grow increasingly bigger. The rigid and flexible fibers shown in the pleomorphic videos reminded me of the weird-looking specimens of Morgellons disease that I once viewed. In this disease strange synthetic-looking fibers come out of the skin. This suggests to me that Morgellons may be the result of the crystalline mycoplasma species developed by the US Army.

The time-line shows that the first patent application was in 1986 and the final patent granted in 1993, while the term 'Morgellons disease' was coined in 2002. Successful self-help methods for Morgellons on the Internet seem to be effective against mycoplasma in general. It appears that the US Army started experimenting with mycoplasma soon after the end of WW2 as suggested by several strange epidemics such as the Royal Free Epidemic of 1955 involving Myalgic Encephalitis, now more commonly called Chronic Fatigue Syndrome or Fibromyalgia.

Large fungal forms are present at the end-stages of cancer and Aids. It is recognised that frequently the cause of death is due to systemic fungus infestations or mycoses. Conventional theory assumes that these are secondary to tumours or the AIDS virus, while the observed pleomorphic life cycle shows that these and their fungal stages are the primary cause why people die of cancer and probably AIDS. The reason for the lethal effects of severe mycoses is probably a combination of poisoning of the energy-producing mitochondria inside cells by fungal toxins and the destruction of erythrocytes by pleomorphics. 

These pleomorphics not only fill the inside of red blood cells and deplete them of nutrients, they also form spines and long protrusions in the cell wall when they move out into the plasma. Someone with myasthenia gravis, an autoimmune disease, once mentioned that he was shocked to see that most of his red blood cells looked like black sea-urchins. These erythrocytes can no longer supply nutrients to the body and are quickly destroyed in the spleen.

This is the real cause of severe anaemia that is so common in advanced cancer and various other diseases. In the end stages of cancer nearly 100% of erythrocytes are strongly infested and dysfunctional. This then leads to cachexia (muscle wasting with extreme fatigue) as the leading cause of death in cancer and AIDS. However, as shown in the longer video, with special Enderlein vaccines even in advanced cancer the erythrocytes could be returned to health within one month with simultaneous shrinking of existing metastases.

You may wonder how it is possible for a single cause such as an overgrowth of the blood with pleomorphics to lead to many different diseases. The answer is basically the same as why a cyclone or hurricane can destroy one building and leave another one undamaged, or rips off the roof of one and causes water damage in another. When the immune system is severely weakened then any pathogens have free range, and the weakest organ will be the first to crumble.

Orgone Experiments

The new observations with a superior microscope also validate the orgone experiments of Wilhelm Reich who described similar microbial processes in the 1940's (The Cancer Biopathy. Farrar, Straus and Giroux, NY, 1973). He accepted only 'terminal' cancer patients and treatment was free. Commonly pain diminished, blood and weight improved, and tumours shrank or disappeared. Despite this, the patients died. From this he concluded that tumours are not an important part of the disease.

Reich's work was so threatening to the medical establishment that all of Reich's published books were burned and equipment destroyed under FDA supervision. Because he maintained that a court was not a proper place to discuss a scientific theory, he died 1957 in an US jail (

His most important achievement, which I regard as the greatest scientific discovery of the last century, was the bion as the basic unit of biological life. He found that every kind of food and vegetable matter when heated to incandescence and then dropped into a sterile nutrient solution evolved into round moving or pulsating bions that appeared blue in dark-field or when viewed with a fluorescent microscope. Reich sacrificed fine structure details and observed mainly at 3000 - 5000x in order to better see colour and movements.

The stronger the blue colour, the higher the vitality of the entity. Under these conditions healthy erythrocytes have a blue appearance while dead ones are black. According to Reich this blue glimmer is the characteristic of bio-energy or life-force which he called orgone. It is present not only in all living matter but also in water and air. Orgone  originates in the sun and is transmitted by sunlight. Bions, the biological units of orgone, may gradually aggregate and evolve into amoeba-like or protozoan structures.

Reich described another formation derived from degenerating proteins as T-bacilli, which stands for the German 'Todes Bacilli' or 'death bacilli'. These can easily be cultivated from cancer tissue, the blood of patients with cancer or precancerous conditions, and also from degenerating blood. Injected in high doses they can kill mice within 24 hours, in lower doses they produce cancerous growths. They are black, lancet shaped and of similar size as described by Olbrich.

Also interesting is the observation that the blue bions paralysed and killed the black T-bacilli and even the much bigger proteus bacilli. In the same way strongly blue erythrocytes killed T-cells and pathogenic bacteria, but thereby the erythrocytes lost some of their blue colour, indicating that their vitality diminished in the process.

When strongly charged red blood cells entered a tumour, cancer tissue started to disintegrate into non-motile T-bodies. But in addition also the red blood cells disappeared and only T-bodies remained visible. The tumour developed large cavities which filled up with T-bodies. Macroscopically the originally blood-red cavities turned into a rust brown colour from the disintegrating tumour and blood cells.

Reich observed that weak erythrocytes could be charged to become strongly blue and vital by using sunlight, and especially his orgone accumulator which concentrates orgone from the atmosphere. Some healers have the ability to channel strong bio-energy with their hands and to some degree even remotely with their mind. 

Degenerating Blood

All cancers, autoimmune diseases and chronic infections seem to be associated with degenerating blood. This becomes apparent from the weak orgone charge of red blood cells and the presence of pleomorphic microbes in both plasma and erythrocytes. The weaker the blue colour and the more widespread and evolved the pleomorphics, the more is the blood degenerated and the more advanced is any chronic disease.

Also there is a concern that blood used for transfusions can be contaminated with mycoplasma. This, as well as the formation of T-bacilli in degenerating blood, may be factors in the observation that transfusions often lead to worse outcomes than giving no blood (

Therefore it is important for us to understand the conditions that cause blood to degenerate. A main cause is the presently widespread 'leaky gut syndrome'. In this condition the intestinal wall is permeable to microbial products present in the intestines, and also to only partly digested proteins which can now enter the blood. This greatly weakens not only the immune system, which tries to keep the blood clean, but also the vitality of red blood cells which become increasingly susceptible to invasion by pleomorphics. Leaky gut syndrome appears to be a frequent outcome of antibiotic and chemo therapy and of other drugs that interfere with our intestinal flora. This allows Candida and other pathogenic microbes to take over and invade the intestinal wall, causing inflammation and making it permeable.

Also contributing are chronic infections and inflammations in other parts of the body. Further implicated is anything that reduces our vitality, such as stress and worry, pharmaceutical and recreational drugs, processed food and nutritional deficiencies, exposure to microwaves and electromagnetic radiation, root canal treatment, fluoride and mercury as from amalgam fillings, and generally pollution of any kind.

According to Reich T-bacilli originate from the degeneration of every type of protein. This degeneration starts when proteins lose their vitality. We commonly experience two forms of protein degeneration: one comes from the inappropriate use of cooked food, and the other from gradually accumulating protein waste in our tissue.

Food can lose its vitality through cooking, storage or various mechanical processes. Food begins to lose vitality immediately after cooking, and a few hours later it has completely disappeared. Therefore, if we eat soon after cooking we still get much of the original vitality but the next day this cooked food may become a source of T-bacilli. In a similar way does fresh food lose its vitality during long or inappropriate storage or mechanical processing, and can then become unhealthy. This should not be a problem with properly dried food and baked products.

Another observation of Reich may provide a solution. If bions are mixed with T-bacilli then the latter will be eliminated. Therefore if we mix some fresh food high in vitality with devitalised food then the overall body reaction will be positive. This also ties in with  the observation that cooked food tends to cause digestive leukocytosis. This is an increase of the number of white blood cells after eating cooked food, indicating the presence of something toxic, but this reaction does not occur after eating raw food. Apparently leukocytosis can be prevented by adding some raw food to cooked food.

The second form of protein degeneration is the accumulation of protein wastes inside cells and tissue. This commonly happens as we age, and is especially noticeable in all kinds of degenerative diseases. Up to 70% of the volume of some cells can be filled with stored decaying matter. This problem arises mainly from habitually eating proteins without their natural enzymes. Most of these enzymes are destroyed by heating over 45 degrees C. The solution is either to eat mainly raw food, or under-eat, or have periodic raw food cleanses.

Understanding Autoimmune Diseases

The mechanism of mycoplasma infections lets us understand the true nature of autoimmune diseases. During the acute initial stage of a bacterial infection the immune system eliminates most of the invading microbes but some of them manage to survive by hiding inside the cells of a vulnerable organ or gland. They may remain there, possibly in their mycoplasma form or even as spores, until the vitality of the host, and especially of the immune system, sufficiently decline.

Then they gradually come out again into the blood, but this time camouflaged by being clothed in the biological markers of the cells in which they have been hiding. This may work for some time but eventually the immune system looks through the deception and starts attacking these imposters. Unfortunately, genuine body cells with the same markers get attacked as well. This then leads to an autoimmune disease involving the organ or gland in which the original invaders had been hiding.

However, my own experience in addition to publications by others show that such autoimmune attacks can be stopped with appropriate natural therapies. To be successful the blood needs to be cleaned of the pleomorphics that weaken the immune system and the red blood cells. Then immune cells can also eliminate the disguised microbes with the deceptive markers from the blood. This eventually stops the attack of normal body cells with these markers. Any surviving invaders may hide again as spores in suitable host cells. Such spores may even be transmitted to the offspring.       

Understanding Cancer

Cancer may start with a primary infection similar to that described for autoimmune diseases, or from pleomorphic microbes arising in tissue weakened by accumulated protein waste. In this case the body contains the microbial infestation by encapsulating it. This is similar some trees forming bark tumours when stung by certain wasps. As long as the blood is clean a tumour is just a tumour, not malignant and not a cancer.

However, if the blood becomes infested with pleomorphics, often in response to an emotional trauma, the encapsulated microbes start multiplying and develop into higher forms. They produce growth hormones which cause the tumour to expand. Now the tumour is malignant but still contained. This situation may persist for many years with the tumour slowly growing or becoming dormant for long periods, depending on the vitality of the body and the strength of the immune system.

Eventually, after many years, and with a worsening pleomorphic presence in the blood, some tumours may form distant metastases. But the trend in modern medicine is to remove even small tumours. This now allows more dangerous microbes to spill into the blood, and dormant micro-metastases already present to spring into life years earlier than they would otherwise have done (

However, even these metastases do not normally kill the patient. Commonly tumours only kill directly if they press on vital body structures. Instead, most cancer patients die from cachexia - severe weight-loss and muscle wasting. The cause of this cachexia is progressive anaemia due to the destruction of most erythrocytes by pleomorphics. This is the main cause of death from cancer. 

Regenerating the Blood

It should now be obvious that the most important requirement to overcome a chronic disease, or to become really healthy and make our body disease-proof, is the regeneration of our blood. We need to remove any higher pleomorphic forms, and recharge our red blood cells with vital energy. This is the goal. When the blood has been regenerated then the immune system seems to be capable of eliminating pleomorphic invaders also in tumours and affected organs. This then shrinks tumours and stops autoimmune attacks.

Our effort may start with sanitising the gastro-intestinal tract by using a combination of anti-microbial remedies and suitable probiotics or fermented foods. Continue this for several months or until any related disease symptoms are under control. For a recommended program see Combine this with a high-quality diet high in fresh raw food (e.g., preferably a moderate exercise program and suitable outdoors activity. Try to minimize the negative factors mentioned in the previous section.

In addition pay attention to blood in meat products. Blood that is low in vitality disintegrates rapidly into pathogenic pleomorphics, and especially T-bacilli. This shows the wisdom of ritual slaughter whereby the blood is drained from the animal. This is supported by the holy books and religious traditions of meat-eating societies, not only in Islam and Judaism, but also based on Bible traditions in early Christianity. In contrast, fresh and healthy blood is a powerful healing agent and has been used for transfusions to cure cancer. The Masai rarely eat meat but typically drink fresh blood of their cattle mixed with raw milk. Zulu tribes also drink fresh animal blood, and Mongols would drink blood from one of their horses.

Live blood analysis (LBA), also called Hemaview, can be very useful to monitor the microbial condition of the blood. LBA uses high-resolution dark field microscopy to observe live blood components in a drop of fresh blood, some use also the even better grayfield method. Try to find a practitioner who focuses on microbes in the blood and not mainly on nutritional issues.

Look especially for visible microbes in the plasma. Interpret spikes, inclusions and deformities of red blood cells (RBCs) as microbial infestations rather than nutritional. Also look for aggregation, stickiness or clumping of RBCs. Get images and compare them every 2 to 3 months. This may show you which microbicides and cleansing methods are most effective.

Rational Cancer Treatment

Some special consideration may be appropriate for overcoming cancer, especially if a large tumour or metastases are present. There are several possibilities.

You may focus mainly on restoring vitality. Wilhelm Reich did this with his orgone accumulator. Even when tumours disappeared many patients died, presumably from the toxic effect of disintegrating large tumours which overloaded the organs of elimination.

The Gerson Diet is based on fresh vegetable juices to provide vitality and strongly focuses on eliminating the generated toxins. This gives it a much better success rate. However, it often leads to massive inflammations or healing crises when the immune system starts attacking the pleomorphics and any tumours. One also needs to be careful not to unduly raise the blood sugar level when drinking juices of sweet vegetables, such as carrots - at least half of such juices should be from green-leaf vegetables, and be sipped gradually.

Inflammatory crises can be avoided by greatly restricting food intake as with the Grape Diet on about 1 kg of grapes spaced out during the day, or with the Breuss Diet on half a litre of fresh vegetable juice sipped during the day. Both programs are scheduled to last for 6 weeks. With this approach the body tends to auto-digest any tumours, and the pleomorphics starve to death, but one needs to have reasonably good weight and energy to start with. Alternatively one may use several periodic raw-food cleanses of shorter duration.

Still another approach is to alkalise the body. Professor Enderlein found that pleomorphic structures dissolved in an alkaline milieu. We cannot make the blood more alkaline then its natural slightly alkaline pH of about 7.4, but we can make the lymph system alkaline and with this any tumours. This may be done with different versions of sodium bicarbonate therapy, and to a more extreme degree with caesium chloride. This may eliminate tumours without much inflammation and also helps to clean the blood.

A variety of antimicrobial remedies and devices have been used for which there is widespread anecdotal and often also research evidence of efficacy. Most of these have strong antifungal properties and tend to work without generating strong inflammations. It appears that they mainly clean the blood. Without the presence of pleomorphics tumours just seem to fade away.

Some well-known examples are olive leaf extract, pau d'arco extract, borax, non-acidified sodium chlorite, kerosene, gum turpentine, and Lugol's iodine solution; ozone and hydrogen peroxide if used intravenously; electronic zapper, and various electronic devices, such as the Rife Frequency Generator, which radiate specific frequencies to destroy pleomorphics. Jim Humble ( claims success with intensive MMS therapy but this is difficult to evaluate because of severe harassment and suppression by the FDA. Minocycline and Doxycycline are conventional antibiotics that work for CWD bacteria and have been successful with various autoimmune diseases when used in very low doses over long periods. However, care must be taken to add antifungal remedies and probiotics, and I regard the non-pharmaceutical antimicrobials as being more effective.

My own preference is to combine a high-quality diet with periodic raw-food cleanses, alkalising the body, and long-term use of moderate amounts of periodically changing antimicrobial remedies and devices. I also like vitalising the blood by exposing the veins under the arms and inside of the legs to sunlight. Continue these efforts until the blood appears to be clean and/or tumours have disappeared or are apparently dormant. For details see The same approach is also suitable for autoimmune diseases and other degenerative conditions.

Conventional medicine cannot adequately explain how tumours kill patients. The available evidence leads me to conclude that tumours are more or less harmless, and that it is mainly the blood contamination with pleomorphic microbes which is the real killer in cancer, AIDS and various other diseases.
