Holy moly!

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is warning consumers not to purchase or drink a product sold online as a medical treatment due to a recent rise in reported health issues. Since 2010, the FDA has warnedExternal Link Disclaimer consumers about the dangers of Miracle or Master Mineral Solution, Miracle Mineral Supplement, MMS, Chlorine Dioxide (CD) Protocol, Water Purification Solution (WPS) and other similar products. Miracle Mineral Solution has not been approved by the FDA for any use, but these products continue to be promoted on social media as a remedy for treating autism, cancer, HIV/AIDS, hepatitis and flu, among other conditions. However, the solution, when mixed, develops into a dangerous bleach which has caused serious and potentially life-threatening side effects.

Miracle Mineral Solution and similar products are not FDA-approved, and ingesting these products is the same as drinking bleach.

Websites selling MMS describe the product as a liquid that is 28% sodium chlorite in distilled water. Product directions instruct consumers to mix the sodium chlorite solution with citric acid – such as lemon or lime juice – or another acid before drinking. In many instances, the sodium chlorite is sold with a citric acid “activator.” When the acid is added, the mixture becomes chlorine dioxide, a powerful bleaching agent.

I was reading out this earlier.

My reaction was the same as yours.

Parents have to be a real dumbass to give their kid bleach to drink.

Why the FDA does not immediately take this kind of crap off the shelves is a mystery to me

I guess its only sold online and they keep moving it around. Also quite a few people have taken it because "friends" suggested it. Saw a woman took it because it was recommended to her for her cancer by her sister. Geez..
