Parents Use Industrial Bleach To "Cure" Autism But Basically Poison Their Children

Date June 28, 2018

When people face incurable and life-threatening disease, they may want to try every possible treatment, even the most dangerous experimental one. However, there’s a much smaller number of people who would dare to choose this path if the disease is not life-threatening. Nowadays, though, more and more parents are trying different experimental ways to treat their children’s autism. Some of those “medications” are basically poisonous chemicals.

There's no cure for autism

Autism is a neurodevelopmental disorder, and its cause is yet to be determined. Many scientists believe that autism is caused by rare gene mutations, whereas the others think the disease development has something to do with synaptic dysfunction. In turn, one secret Facebook group promotes their theory about parasites causing the disorder and suggests the potentially lethal treatment to cure it.

"Miracle treatment"

The magical treatment is called Miracle Mineral Solution or Master Mineral Solution (MMS) and is a combination of sodium chlorite and citric acid, which is basically industrial bleach (chlorine dioxide). Chlorine dioxide is extremely toxic eye and respiratory irritant that causes severe dehydration, diarrhea, and nausea. Reportedly, MMS is traced back to a non-religious American cult called “Church of Bleach.” The believers think MMS causes bacterial and viral infections to leave the body via diarrhea and nausea.

The church followers believe MMS is capable of curing celiac disease, eating disorders, Down syndrome, HIV/AIDS, flu, and even autism. They think autism is caused by parasites, yeast, viruses, and bad gut bacteria. They also believe that MMS doesn’t harm any beneficial bacteria or good cell in the body. However, there is no scientific evidence that this product can cure autism.

Who would you rather believe?

Jim Humble, a person who invented the “miracle treatment” and created the church, claims he’s a god from another galaxy. He also stated that he treated 800 cases of HIV with MMS and cured every single person. Would you believe such person? Yet, some desperate parents are basically killing their children with autism with this poison.

Dr. Jeff Foster warns parents not to try this treatment:

Chlorine dioxide causes abdominal cramps, vomiting and diarrhoea. If you drink it on a long-term basis it causes inflammation of your gut­lining, stomach, oesophagus and intestines. At some stage something pops and then you can bleed to death. They might make claims the doses are so small that it’s not like giving proper industrial bleach. But no dose is safe.

We ask you to share the information to prevent people falling victims to this scam. The US Food and Drug Administration also warns about the dangers of MMS and asks to notify local law enforcement of distribution.
