People protesting on the street, 1964.Gaston Naessens was born 1924 in a comfortably off family in Northern France. Just prior to World War II Gaston was studying physics, chemistry and biology at the University of Lille. He received a degree in biological engineering from the Union Nationale Scientifique Francaise but never bothered to obtain an official diploma from the de Gaulle government after the war. Naessens built his microscope in 1949 and called it the “Somatoscope”. With this unprecedented magnification at his fingertips Naessens started studying human blood.714-X was developed by Gaston Naessens, a native of France and tried there for practicing medicine without a license. Naessens moved to Quebec and continued his research from the early 1970s. In 1989 he was arrested but acquitted from charges of accessory to murder, after a cancer patient using 714-X died following refusal to take conventional medical treatment. The name "714-X" was chosen by Naessens to symbolize his initials (the 7th and 14th letters of the alphabet) and the year of his birth (1924, as X is the 24th letter).[4] The marketers claim that 714-X works by counteracting the harm done by "somatids", a life form which is not bacterial, viral or fungal, but which instead belongs to a distinct domain unknown to modern science and medicine.[5] Sales of 714-X have been banned in the USA by the Food and Drug Administration, and in 1996 Charles Pixley was tried and jailed for advocating and distributing it. During proceedings Pixley claimed it was the re-branding of a homeopathic beverage, known prior to the establishment of the FDA, however Naessens later said that it was completely different and has nothing to do with homeopathy.people, women, men, together, protesting, street, screaming, walking, night, darkness, communication, 1964
