Caption: Orgone accumulator demonstration. Orgone is a universal life force proposed by the Austrian psychoanalyst Wilhelm Reich (1897-1957). He believed that deficits or blockages of orgone were the cause of many serious diseases. Orgone accumulators supposedly collected orgone from the environment and delivered it to a person to treat diseases or generally improve health. In 1954 the Food and Drug administration were granted an injunction, on the bases of false and misleading claims, that ordered the destruction of all accumulators and any literature mentioning them. Reich was later jailed for violating the injunction.
