"CURE FOR RUNAWAY DELINQUENTS---"JUST FEED THEM SOUZA SOUP"
Excerpt Quoted from "Patterns of Delinquency" by Joy Reese Shaw: Archival Records
St Pete Times:
Here are the methods that Dr. Luis Souza used to evaluate an inmate.
Basically, his theory is that in many instances the blood does not transport sufficient oxygen to the blood cells and behavioral disorders developed. Dr.
Luis Souza gives to boys whose behavior indicates they need help, a neurological examination, laboratory studies and electro-encephalograph. He
establishes normal oxygen capacity transmission at 9.5. When he finds it less than 7.5 he puts the youth under treatment. Souza's "Soup" was a
specially prepared mixture of concentrated protein prepared from red bone marrow. Each child receives eight ounces a day. Of 2,200 boys tested 1,800
showed the problem and 70% improved with treatment. The critical age is 11-21 and diet control management. Dr Luis Souza worked in Vienna with
German Psychiatrist Dr.Sigfried Krunner....who pioneered in Ultra Sonic Sound Therapy and in the research of "light" protein associated with mental
impairment due to low gasometric capacity of the hemoglobin.
Excited about the finding Dr. Luis Souza has continued research in the same field, concentrating on the juvenile offender. Basically, his theory is that
in many instances the blood does not transport sufficient oxygen to the blood cells and behavioral disorders developed.
When kids do not get enough protein, the hemoglobin falls down and the brain cells do not receive enough oxygen, he pointed out.
"Many children do not eat properly," he stated.
His answer: "Souza's Soup"..... a specially prepared mixture of concentrated protein prepared from red bone marrow. Each child under treatment
receives eight ounces a day.
Of 2,200 boys tested, he said, 1,800 showed the problem.....and 70 percent improved with treatment.
"The critical age is 11-21 and diet control management in correctional institutions."

COMMENTS: R. Straley
I talked to Ellen at the Federal Food & Drug Administration on 2/17/2010. She verified that a homemade remedy by a doctor, employed by the state of
Florida, that doctor would not have been allowed to pass out any self made drug in any form, that it would have been illegal then and is illegal today.
She stated that not even a drug approved for testing would have been used on juveniles in an institutional setting.
Basically, Dr. Souza, had a theory that diet may cause the blood to transport insufficient oxygen to the blood cells causing behavioral disorders and
there by creating juvenile delinquency. This is not a medical fact, this is pure speculation by a physician not qualified to test such a theory on human
subjects. This was gross negligence on the part of the Officials of the Institution and the State of Florida. As stated in the article in his own words, up to
1800 (or more) boys were forced to ingest an unknown, unapproved and untested drug while at the school. Note that Dr. Sigfried Krunner worked in
the "research" of light protein and Dr. Luis Souza continued his "research" in the same field. The boys may as well have been lab animals. "Research"
is a process done in the lab and a "theory" does not warrant human testing.
Future investigation to follow....would appreciate any "whitehouseboys" that were subjected to treatments or tests as described below by Dr. Souza.
Note: sample picture of a EEG Recording Cap above is depiction only, Description of any medical equipment used would be helpful....Thanks.... Robert

Oxygen Saturation in Arterial Blood.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (Link has more content, this is excerpt)
Electroencephalography (EEG) is the recording of electrical activity along the scalp produced by the firing of neurons within the brain. In clinical
contexts, EEG refers to the recording of the brain's spontaneous electrical activity over a short period of time, usually 20–40 minutes, as recorded from
multiple electrodes placed on the scalp. In neurology, the main diagnostic application of EEG is in the case of epilepsy, as epileptic activity can create
clear abnormalities on a standard EEG study. A secondary clinical use of EEG is in the diagnosis of coma, encephalopathies, and brain death. EEG
used to be a first-line method for the diagnosis of tumors, stroke and other focal brain disorders, but this use has decreased with the advent of
anatomical imaging techniques such as MRI and CT.
Derivatives of the EEG technique include evoked potentials (EP), which involves averaging the EEG activity time-locked to the presentation of a
stimulus of some sort (visual, somatosensory, or auditory). Event-related potentials refer to averaged EEG responses that are time-locked to more
complex processing of stimuli; this technique is used in cognitive science, cognitive psychology, and psychophysiological research.
ULTRASOUND (Link has more content, this is excerpt)
Guidelines for the Safe Use of Ultrasound, Safety Information Resources
American Physical Therapy Association
An ultrasound machine consists of a console that is plugged into an AC adapter, in which a coaxial cable provides electrical current to a handheld
transducer with an applicator head (which emits the ultrasound waves). Your doctor would rub a special gel on the skin of your affected area, then
program the device to emit sound waves at a certain frequency from 0.8 to 3 megahertz (depending on your condition). He would move it over your
skin in small circular motions for 5 to 10 minutes a session.
Parts of Your Body to Avoid
You should not use ultrasound over the skin where your organs or mucus membranes are located, which include the following; heart, lungs, kidneys,
liver, bowels, vagina, ovaries, testes, rectum, brain, spinal cord, nose, eyes and mouth. It is also important that pregnant women do not expose their
abdomen or lower back region to ultrasound waves as it may harm the fetus.
Ultrasound therapy should not be used if you have certain medical conditions or illnesses, which include the following: severe arterial insufficiency,
cardiac disease, deep vein thrombosis, spina bifida, bone infections and bleeding disorders. Also, ultrasound should not be used on growth plates of
children, as it may affect their potential growth. People with metal implants (e.g., pacemakers) should not use ultrasound in that area of the body.
According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), sound waves from ultrasound therapy should not come into contact with any organs of your
body. These highly sensitive organs include the following: heart, kidneys, liver, lungs, stomach, spleen, bowels, eyes, ears, ovaries, testicles, brain
and spinal cord. Also, the sound waves should not come in contact over mucous membrane areas of the body, which include the mouth, nose, rectum
and vagina. Further, ultrasound should not be used over areas of the body that have a metal implant embedded (e.g. pacemaker) as well as over any
active growth plates (epiphyseal regions) in children.
Ultrasound therapy should not be used on patients who have certain diseases, illnesses and/or conditions. The following are some examples;
hemophilia (bleeding disorder), spina bifida, tissues or bones that have active infection (e.g. opens sores), cancerous or pre-cancerous cells, de-
sensitized areas of the skin (diabetic neuropathy), untreated osteomyelitis (bone infection), deep vein thrombosis and cardiac disease. Also, it is very
important that ultrasound sound waves do not go over the abdomen and lower back (lumbar) region of pregnant women or potentially pregnant women.

Comparison of three methods for determining oxygen saturation in arterial blood.
Thomas VE, Anema RJ, McNamara JJ.
Am J Med Technol. 1975 Oct;41(10):360-3.
Oxygen saturation was determined by direct measurement with the Van Slyke method, an oximeter, and by indirect measurement with a pO2 electrode
with conversion of oxygen tension to oxygen saturation. All three methods correlated well when the oxygen saturation was above 94 per cent. Below
this value both the oximeter measurement and the saturation value calculated from the oxygen tension significantly overestimated the oxygen
saturation as determined by the Van Slyke method. It appears from our data that when the saturation is less than 94 per cent, the absolute values for
O2 saturation continue to be accurately determined with a Van Slyke, but the other two methods in this range are, at best, only useful in detecting
gross changes in oxygen saturation.
How much oxygen is in the blood? The Differences Between PaO2, SaO2 and Oxygen Content.
In the field of blood gas interpretation, confusion about PaO2, SaO2 and oxygen content is second only to confusion about mixed acid-base
http://www.lakesidepress.com/pulmonary/ABG/PO2.htm (Excert Below)
Arterial PO2 (little 'a')gives us valuable information about adequacy of gas exchange within the lungs, when (and only when) it is subtracted from the
calculated alveolar PO2 (big A). We use the Alveolar Gas Equation to calculate PAO2. The difference between measured PaO2 and calculated PAO2 is
called the Alveolar-arterial PO2 difference or 'A-a Gradient' for short. The A-a gradient answers the important question: Are the lungs transferring
oxygen properly from the atmosphere to the pulmonary circulation? If the A-a gradient is elevated, the answer is NO. If the A-a gradient is normal is
YES. (The A-a gradient is discussed in detail in Chapter 4).
There is a second, equally important question concerning oxygen and gas exchange, which is the subject of this section:
How much oxygen is in the blood, and is it adequate for the patient?
The answer here must obviously be based on some oxygen value, but which one? After all, blood gases give us three different oxygen values.
