Royal Raymond Rife  was an American inventor and early exponent of high-magnification time-lapse cine-micrography.

Rife is known for his microscopes, which he claimed could observe live microorganisms with a magnification considered impossible for his time, and for an “oscillating beam ray” invention, which he thought could treat various ailments by “devitalizing disease organisms” using radio waves. Although he came to collaborate with scientists, doctors and inventors of the epoch, and his findings were published in newspapers and scientific journals like the Smithsonian Institution annual report of 1944, they were later rejected by the American Medical Association (AMA), the American Cancer Society (ACS) and mainstream science.

Rife’s supporters continue to claim that impulses of electromagnetic frequencies can disable cancerous cells and other microorganisms responsible for diseases. Most of these claims have no scientific research to back them up and Rife machines are not approved for treatment by health authorities in the world. Multiple promoters have been convicted of health fraud and sent to prison.

After this book’s publication, a variety of devices bearing Rife’s name were marketed as cures for diverse diseases such as cancer and AIDS. An analysis by Electronics Australia found that one typical ‘Rife device’ cost AU$105 for a rudimentary circuit that simply produced a tiny pulsed electrical current (at a single fixed frequency of about 40kHz). It consisted of a nine-volt battery, wiring, a switch, a standard 555 timer chip and two short lengths of copper tubing meant to act as handheld electrodes, delivering a current which the author estimated at 1 milliamp at most. Its design was, in fact, almost identical to the “zapper” device promoted by Hulda Clark, rather than having much in common with Rife’s original devices. He described this as “the tip of an enormous iceberg”, with a wide range of more elaborate devices also on sale from different suppliers, varying widely in design and ranging in price from AU$1,500 to AU$34,000.

Such ‘Rife devices’ have figured prominently in several cases of health fraud in the U.S., typically centered around the uselessness of the devices and the grandiose claims with which they are marketed. In a 1996 case, the marketers of a ‘Rife device’ claiming to cure numerous diseases including cancer and AIDS were convicted of felony health fraud. The sentencing judge described them as “target[ing] the most vulnerable people, including those suffering from terminal disease” and providing false hope. In some cases cancer patients who ceased chemotherapy and instead used these devices have died. A Mount Vernon couple Donald and Sharon Brandt, who operated a clandestine health-care clinic based on Rife’s inventions has been convicted for a short imprisonment period. Rife devices are currently classified as a subset of radionics devices, which are generally viewed as pseudomedicine by mainstream experts. In Australia, the use of Rife machines has been blamed for the deaths of cancer patients who might have been cured with conventional therapy. In 2002 John Bryon Krueger, who operated the Royal Rife Research Society, was sentenced to 12 years in prison for his role in a murder and also received a concurrent 30-month sentence for illegally selling Rife devices. In 2009 a U.S. court convicted James Folsom of 26 felony counts for sale of the Rife devices sold as ‘NatureTronics’, ‘AstroPulse’, ‘BioSolutions’, ‘Energy Wellness’, and ‘Global Wellness’.
