Agency Continues Effort to Protect Public Health from Fraudulent and Harmful Products For Immediate Release: April 08, 2020

FDA

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has issued a warning letter to a seller that markets fraudulent and dangerous chlorine dioxide products known as “Miracle Mineral Solution” for prevention and treatment of “Novel Coronavirus Disease 2019” (COVID-19). The FDA has previously warned consumers not to purchase or drink chlorine dioxide products sold online as medical treatments, as the agency is not aware of any scientific evidence supporting their safety or effectiveness and they pose significant risks to patient health. The FDA is taking this action to protect Americans as part of its response to the global COVID-19 pandemic.

“Despite previous warnings, the FDA is concerned that we are still seeing chlorine dioxide products being sold with misleading claims that they are safe and effective for the treatment Read the rest

An American pastor from New Jersey backed by a British former clairvoyant is running a network that gives up to 50,000 Ugandans a “miracle cure” made from industrial bleach, claiming drinking the toxic fluid eradicates cancer, HIV/Aids, malaria and most other diseases.

The network, led by pastor Robert Baldwin and part-funded by Sam Little from Arlesey in Bedfordshire, is one of the most extensive efforts yet to distribute the “miracle cure” known as MMS, or “miracle mineral solution”. The Guardian has learned that poor Ugandans, including infants as young as 14 months old, are being given chlorine dioxide, a product that has no known health benefit and can Read the rest

A father in Indianapolis last week accused his wife of feeding their child bleach to help cure her autism – something his wife had read about in a Facebook group.

Police arrested the 28-year-old mother on Saturday after she allegedly put drops of hydrochloric acid and water-purifying solution in her young daughter’s drinks.

The potentially dangerous chemical combination, which becomes an industrial bleach, is marketed as Miracle Mineral Solution or Master Mineral Solution, which its advocates claim will cure a number of diseases, including autism, cancer, AIDS and hepatitis.

Miracle Bleach Cure?

Continue Reading 0

It’s little more than household bleach, but is touted as a cure for autism and a gut sanitiser that will cure almost anything from HIV to cancer. Pioneered but discredited in the United States, the mineral solution has now been brought to South Africa where the mixture, containing chlorine dioxide, is being administered to children. But there have been no clinical trials to test this so-called ‘miracle solution’ and experts say it’s downright dangerous. Carte Blanche investigates: Video

British MMS prescriber suspended

Posted 07 December 2015

The British General Medical Council has suspended the registration of Dr. Finbar Magee. [Houston L. Alternative medicine row doctor is suspended by GMC. Belfast Telegraph, Nov 26, 2015]

MMS (Miracle Mineral Solution), an industrial-strength bleach derivative that has been marketed for many health problems, has been subjected to enforcement actions in several countries because it is ineffective and dangerous.

Last May, an RTE Prime Time television documentary focused on Magee’s prescription of MMS for the treatment of an autistic child. His interim suspension follows a panel ruling last December which restricted his practice to closely supervised practice at his clinic. Magee has operated Synergy Healthcare in Belfast, Ireland, for many years, which offers a wide range of offbeat treatments. The GMC’s concerns about him have not yet been disclosed but are likely to be related to his advocacy of MMS. Interim suspension is usually followed … Read the rest

Major MMS marketer curbed in Illinois

The Illinois Attorney General has obtained an agreement under which Kerri Rivera is barred from promoting Miracle Mineral Supplement (MMS) as an autism cure in Illinois. MMS contains a 28% solution of sodium chlorite, which, when mixed with an acid such as citrus juice, produces chlorine dioxide (ClO2), a potent bleach used for stripping textiles and industrial water treatment. High oral doses, such as those recommended in MMS labeling, can cause nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and severe dehydration.

Health Canada seizes Miracle Mineral Solution

Posted 04 November 2014

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
