Date:8/21/2008

SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 21 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Medizone International, Inc. (Pink Sheets: MZEI) announces the appointment of Michael E. Shannon, M.A., M.Sc., M.D. to its Board of Directors. Dr. Shannon received his medical degree from Queen's University in Canada, which included advanced training in surgery and sports medicine. He also holds post-graduate degrees in neurochemistry and physiology. He has been actively engaged in applied medical research within these areas for over 27 years. He served in the Canadian Forces for 31 years retiring at the rank of Commodore (Brigadier General equivalent) as Deputy Surgeon General for Canada. During the first Gulf War, Dr. Shannon served as the senior medical liaison officer for all of the Canadian forces. In 1996 he assumed responsibilities within Health Canada for re-organizing the Canadian blood system. Working with both the provincial and federal governments, he oversaw the development of a new corporate entity dedicated exclusively to the management of blood services in Canada. He was then appointed Director General for the Laboratory Centre for Disease Control, a position he held for three years. In December 2000, Dr. Shannon left the Canadian federal government to pursue a new career in industry. In that capacity he simultaneously directed a phase III clinical trial in Canada, the United States and Great Britain for an artificial blood substitute product. Following completion of that work he was asked to accept a special assignment with the Canadian Federal Government Auditor General's office. His assignment was to conduct a cost benefit analysis of all government sponsored pharmacare programs and make recommendations directly to the Parliament of Canada. His assignment and presentation to Parliament on that project was completed in November 2004. Dr. Shannon recently worked on a special project assignment as Senior Medical Advisor to the Canadian Public Health Agency. His assignment was to review and help rebuild the Canadian Public Health Agency's Emergency Medical Response Capacity. His work in that regard with the Canadian government was completed the end of July this year.

Internationally respected for his expertise, Dr. Shannon has been actively engaged in medical bio-oxidative (O3 based), research since 1987 and was directly responsible for the first human clinical trial to have ever been approved in North America which examined the efficacy of O3 delivered via autohemotherapy in the treatment of AIDS. He was also responsible for several primate studies utilizing O3 involving scientists from various departments within the Canadian Federal Government, as well as senior investigators from Medizone International and Cornell University.

Medizone's Chairman and CEO, Edwin Marshall commented; "On behalf of the members of the board and all of the Company's shareholders, we welcome Dr. Shannon to our Board of Directors. The wisdom and expertise Dr. Shannon brings to Medizone is unparalleled in the history of our company. I consider him a remarkable man and feel honored to be able to refer to him as a professional associate. This appointment signals an immense step forward in the reorganization of Medizone International.
