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”.

FDA MedWatch – Miracle Mineral Solution (MMS): Product as consumed produces a potent bleach that can cause serious harm
AUDIENCE: Consumers, Emergency Medicine
ISSUE: FDA warned consumers not to consume or use Miracle Mineral Solution, an oral liquid solution also known as “Miracle Mineral Supplement” or “MMS.” The product, when used as directed, produces an industrial bleach that can cause serious harm to health. The product instructs consumers to mix the 28 percent sodium chlorite solution with an acid such as citrus juice. This mixture produces chlorine dioxide, a potent bleach used for stripping textiles and industrial water treatment. High oral doses of this bleach, such as those recommended in the labeling, can cause nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and symptoms of severe dehydration.
BACKGROUND: MMS is distributed on Internet sites and online auctions by multiple independent distributors. MMS claims to treat multiple unrelated diseases, including HIV, hepatitis, the H1N1 flu virus, common colds, acne, cancer, and other conditions. The FDA is not aware of any research that MMS is effective in treating any of these conditions. MMS also poses a significant health risk to consumers who may choose to use this product for self-treatment instead of seeking FDA-approved treatments for these conditions.
RECOMMENDATIONS: Consumers who have MMS should stop using it immediately and throw it away. The FDA advises consumers who have experienced any negative side effects from MMS to consult a health care professional as soon as possible.

Tine Van Der Maas (remember her?! She convinced a previous Health Minister, (Manto) that garlic, beetroot and lemon juice, among other, would cure AIDS).
On her website, at http://www.tinevandermaas.com/basic-wellness/miracle-mineral-supplement-or-mms/ she writes:
“First I want to thank Jim Humble, who took it from no-where to where it is slowly becoming “mainstream” today, and who has done an amazing amount of research on MMS. He has devoted many of his years showing people all over the world, but especially in Africa, how and why MMS works.
You can read his book on his website:
In short, he experimented for years and eventually found that if you mixed the drops with lemon juice, it became activated to kill malaria. He then traveled all over Africa to show doctors and government officials how fast MMS worked to kill the Malaria parasites in an extremely affordable way. I can testify that it works extremely well against Malaria. When I received my first bottle of MMS a few years ago, (I obviously first read Jim Humble’s book), I went to a malaria area in South Africa and asked 2 people at a hospital who had been diagnosed with malaria if they were prepared to try the MMS. They had all the symptoms like high fever, shaking and drowsiness. Using Jim Humble’s Protocol, within about five and a half hours, the symptoms were gone, and when a blood test was done the next morning (about 14 hours later), the blood was parasite free.
Did the doctors ask me what I had used? NO! Did they want to know? NO! Are people still suffering and dying from Malaria unnecessary while there is an extremely affordable remedy available? Yes!
I have since tried it for many different diseases including AIDS, all types of cancers, all types of infections, and when the “swine” flu was here, it also worked beautifully. When we will do our Clinical Trials, we will invite Jim Humble to visit us, so he can enjoy the fruit of his work.”
Warning, there is not a shred of evidence that this product works!
The reporter, Antoinette Pienaar, wrote a scathing report on this product in the Afrikaans newspaper, Die Beeld, titled “Wonderdruppels? Smyt weg!” (Wonderdrops? Throw away!)
