Health Canada has seized a supply of Miracle Mineral Solution (MMS), which was sold as a treatment for serious diseases such as cancer through the website www.buymms.biz. MMS contains sodium chlorite, a chemical used mainly as a textile bleaching agent and disinfectant, which cause nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and symptoms of severe dehydration, if ingested. An alternate format of MMS, labeled as CDS, also sold through this Web site, would pose similar risks. The seizure included bottles of MMS, packaging, labeling, and raw materials used to produce MMS. The agency said that it took the action because the company had failed to comply with an order to cease sales. In 2009,the FDA ordered one MMS distributor to stop making illegal health claims for MMS, and in 2010, both agencies issued public warnings. Presumably as a result, manufacturers have changed the product label to specify that Read the rest

Miracle Mineral Solution – scam continues

Posted 26 June 2014

Ms LL Steele lodged a complaint against  Bio Sil MMS website, specifically the page on http://www.biosil.co.za/products/bio-sil-mms-miracle-mineral-solution, which promotes the Miracle Mineral Solution product. The complainant submitted that the advertisement is highly misleading and causes a potential danger to members of the public who might be seeking a cure for various health problems. People are consuming this product (which is effectively a bleach or disinfectant), and in instances giving it to their children without realising the severe health consequences this could have (which includes poisoning, kidney failure and harming red blood cells).

Initially, the  Bio Sil MMS submitted that she had done extensive research, and has not found any evidence of chlorine dioxide harming anybody. A request was made for the new complainant to provide proof of such harm. (Here is proof from the FDA) Following correspondence with the ASA,  Bio Sil MMS refused further communication.… Read the rest

Homemark Detox Tea – big scam

Posted: 17 November 2011

A consumer lodged a consumer complaint against the Homemark’s television commercial promoting its Detox Tea as a “Powerful, effective, cleansing herbal tea”, and a “full body detox in every cup”. 

Some of the claims emphasised in the commercial are:
• “STIMULATE Digestive System”;
• “FIGHT Free Radicals”;
• “ENHANCE Immune System”;
• “BOOST Energy Levels”.

The voice-over also exclaims “… Plus, lose weight, improve your complexion, all with the amazing Detox Tea …” In essence, the complainant submitted that these claims are ridiculous and have no substance. As such, it is irresponsible to place such commercials on television.

The ASA agreed: These claims are not substantiated.

NB: Dr Paul Abrahams who tried to substantiate this product, has substantiated a number of other scam Homemark products. A complaint against Dr Abrahams has been laid with the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA) – the regulatory authority Read the rest

Miracle mineral supplement / Faith Drops

Posted 03 August 2010

In the USA, a product called Miracle mineral supplement is sold claiming to be able to cure malaria, AIDS, and a number of other conditions. The science is very implausible. It is also sold by individuals in South Africa. It may be similar to Faith Drops (www.cancercure.co.za ) (which claims to be able to cure AIDS and cancer – also implausible). In fact, we could use a much harsher word to describe these products.

Are they the same product? They do resemble each other in some instances. Telling is the statement “Miracle mineral supplement” at the bottom of the Faith Drops URL at www.cancercure.co.za.

Are we the only ones warning consumers that this product can harm you more than heal you? No, the USA FDA MedWatch warns: “Miracle Mineral Solution (MMS): Product as consumed produces a potent bleach that can cause serious harm”.
