South America’s bitter divide over a toxic ‘Covid cure’ (MMS)

Posted 01 July 2021

“The protest was organized by an organisation called Comusav, a Spanish acronym for ‘Global Coalition for Health and Life’. They said they were defending their rights to life and health, but their true cause was demanding their government accept a toxic chemical as a treatment for Covid-19.

It is considered hazardous for human consumption by health authorities all over the world, including those in Peru. Its promoters have had face-offs with doctors and have even been prosecuted by authorities for years, but the coronavirus pandemic gave them their biggest showcase so far.”

This article on the BBC’s website, examines how Chlorine dioxide (MMS)(Miracle Mineral Solution) is being promoted in South America with false claims that it is effective for Covid.

The FDA Is Literally Warning People Not to Drink Bleach (MMS)

Posted 15 August 2019

David Nield 16 AUG 2019

Just in case you were in any doubt, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has spelled it out: please don’t drink bleach. It will mess up your insides, and it’s most certainly not a miracle cure.

If you’re wondering why such a warning is even necessary, it all comes down to an alternative remedy that people purchase, mix at home, and ingest with the hope to cure various conditions – including autism, cancer, HIV/AIDS, hepatitis, and even the flu.

Various bad actors are pushing this so-called Miracle Mineral Solution or Master Mineral Solution (MMS) as a fix for a variety of ills on social media; it’s been going on for a while, despite plenty of authoritative, scientific, informed advice that it’s all a scam.

“The solution, when mixed, develops into a dangerous bleach which has caused serious
