Dr. Harold D. Foster, Ph.D. (1933 – 2009) was one of the giants in orthomolecular medicine with boundless enthusiasm and a prolific gift of writing. He was a researcher with a soaring scientific mind who made unique contributions to the understanding of health and disease. Dr. Foster was professor of geography at the University of Victoria.
Using evidence from disciplines as diverse as history, geography, biochemistry and genetics, Dr. Foster demonstrates in the book “What Really Causes Schizophrenia” (2003) that schizophrenia is caused by the hallucinogen adrenochrome and its derivatives. Effective treatment involves orthomolecular substances that reduce adrenochrome production or mitigate its impact.
Dr. Abram Hoffer (1917 – 2009) wrote in 2004 a book review of “What Really Causes Schizophrenia” in the Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine. For more information on the science and research based on Dr.Foster’s work, visit The Harold Foster Foundation and Foster Health.
