Miracle Mineral Solution (MMS):
Product as consumed produces a potent bleach -- says FDA
[Posted 07/30/2010 on www.curezone.org]
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.
Healthcare professionals and patients are encouraged to report adverse events or side effects related to the use of this product to the FDA's MedWatch Safety Information and Adverse Event Reporting Program:
Adam Abraham says about this:
In a move that surprised no one, the FDA has finally taken an official position on the Miracle Mineral Supplement, known by most by the acronym, “MMS.” In a July 30 news release, the agency warned of “serious harm from drinking MMS.” This is a trend that began in May, with a Media Advisory against MMS issued by Health Canada, which cited two complaints it had received. In June, Spain followed suit with its own ban on MMS imports. Having no complaints of its own, it justified its action on Canada’s. The FDA said it has received several reports of health injuries from consumers who used MMS. They included what many who have successfully worked through their health challenges recognize as positive signs, i.e., nausea, vomiting (not guaranteed, but not unexpected either). Diarrhea wasn’t mentioned by name, but they did mention life-threatening low blood pressure from dehydration.
I don’t mean to minimize any of this, but given the numbers of people, now estimated to be in the millions, who have used MMS in the past two plus years, this is tantamount to overwhelming evidence of its benign and beneficial nature. People are not afraid to share bad news, and even make up bad news if it isn’t bad enough. So the overwhelming number of unsolicited positive results shared by MMS users, are significant.
The FDA news release indicates that the agency is considering criminal or civil actions as appropriate “to protect the public from this potentially dangerous product.”
I’m sorry, but this is such hooey, I can hardly stand it.
This is my opinion: The FDA is bought and paid for by the big pharmaceutical companies. How legitimate is that? MMS might be taking a little money out of the drug lord's hands.
Listen to the Kevin Trudeau show at http://ktradionetwork.com and he exposes all the FDA private dealings with big pharma.
And another point... so they say that MMS is a bleach! Well, folks, so is lemon juice and I don't see FDA warnings when we drink lemon aid.
I've been on MMS for three years and I'm completely over Lyme disease. It is a life saver. You get it here at a reasonable price and also get the new 50/50 protocol put out by Jim Humble in his 2010 newsletters. Jim says to take it every hour of the day: http://reikiranch.net
Don't let the FDA tell you what to do. MMS has been used as a miracle solution by millions of people and it is growing. Yahoo!
