FDA Warns Consumers of Serious Harm from Drinking Miracle Mineral Solution (MMS)
Product contains industrial strength bleach

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is warning consumers not to take Miracle Mineral Solution, an oral liquid 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 FDA has received several reports of health injuries from consumers using this product, including severe nausea, vomiting, and life-threatening low blood pressure from dehydration.

Consumers who have MMS should stop using it immediately and throw it away.

MMS is distributed on Internet sites and online auctions by multiple independent distributors. Although the products share the MMS name, the look of the labeling may vary.

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.

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.

The FDA continues to investigate and may pursue civil or criminal enforcement actions as appropriate to protect the public from this potentially dangerous product.

The FDA advises consumers who have experienced any negative side effects from MMS to consult a health care professional as soon as possible and to discard the product. Consumers and health care professionals should report adverse events to the FDA’s MedWatch program at 800-FDA-1088 or online at www.fda.gov/medwatch/report.htm.

    MMS is not like household bleach. It is ACTUALLY used all over the world to purify water in municipalities. 

    MMS has been used to heal thousands of people in Africa from malaria. It rids the body of pathogens. Anyone feels a little sick when they are ridding their body of pathogens.

    What makes me sick is how people trust the FDA and Pharmaceutical Corporations, whose drugs are linked to millions of deaths and billions of dollars in profits.

    I have let this comment above to be posted, but readers need to be aware that it is a ton of baloney. MMS has NOT been used to heal thousands of people in Africa from malaria. There is not a shred of evidence to support this rubbish claim. 

    To ignore the facts does not change the facts. 

    What makes me sick is how people trust MMS whose products are linked to deaths (because it does not work and therefore users do not look for proper medical attention) and dollars in profits (yes, MMS is not free, they make money from selling it to you!)

    To say ClO2 is industrial bleach means you either don't know anything about chemistry or you have something serious to hide. Why do we see people suffering from gross illnesses recover their health after using MMS? Even the hospital could not believe the blood work reports showing CD4 counts going from 83 to <1000 and viral loads down to below 200. Evidence like that cannot be denied.
    There is more to this than just "believing" the "experts" denials! I am prepared to do more investigation for myself because of this.

    “High oral doses of this bleach, such as those recommended in the labeling, can cause nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and symptoms of severe dehydration.”

    Yeah, these side effects are pretty horrible. The FDA doesn’t approve drugs that can harm people as such.

    @Lightwaves –

    You are either a shill – or very closed minded. I personally know of many folks using this very simple solution and it is providing results where the normal channels have “given up” as there is nothing else that helps.

    You knowledge of the standard practice by the FDA (who works for big Pharma in my opinion and is supported by many references available to read…) seems to be one sided. The question thus remains – whose side are you on?

  6. Harris 6 September, 2012 at 11:34 am #

    We are on the side of facts, proof and science – and NOT opinion or anecdotes, which are often false or fabricated. If there was proof that “using this very simple solution and it is providing results” these would have been documented and published in a reputable peer-reviewed journal.

    Point taken Harris. There are a number of scientific studies published on the risk of ingesting Chlorine Dioxide and there has been no rebuttal of these. The fact that 70% (a published statistic) of water treatment facilities worldwide are making use of Chlorine Dioxide cannot be refuted. It is not poisonous if appropriately handled and it is highly effective.

    I am of personal opinion that the said substance (not a drug by the way) is so controversial to the organized “business” of medical interest that it will not get a fair review in any “peer-review” structure. The arguments against it are poorly founded opinion and similarly lack scientific backing. The amount of articles around on the drugs approved by the FDA that have later been “withdrawn” due to numerous deaths or damage to “patients” is another point against claiming the FDA is an absolutely reliable authority.

    But truth can not be obscured forever.
