Emily Willingham and Jennifer Byde-Myers created a Change.org petition No bleach enemas to “cure” autism in children! Right now there are over 1,700 signatures to that petition. If you haven’t signed yet, consider doing so now.
The “inventor” (Jim Humble) of MMS (Miracle Mineral Solution) started his own petition to defend the practice: Emily Willingham: Stop telling people that MMS is bleach because it is not.
The petition is short…and incorrect:
Stop telling people that MMS is bleach because it is not
Because there are some mothers that don’t realize that Emily is wrong and they may never help their child to attain normalcy.
Which so far has 46 of the hoped-for 1,000,000 signatures he was seeking. Mr. Humble, of course, is one of the 46.
As is “credulous nimrod”
Just because this is exactly the same chemical as bleach doesn’t mean Emily should call it bleach! This is because of reasons. And quantum mechanics. And I trust that Jim Humble would never lie to desperate parents just because he’s selling this product for a profit! Enough of the medical establishment and their “science” and their “first, do no harm.” We want pointless feel-good actions that take advantage of our sadness and our scientific illiteracy!
and “Igor K”
Stop the fearmongering. Just because sodium chlorite bleaches through oxidation and is grouped with other chlorine bleaches that operate in a similar fashion (i.e. chlorine dioxide, chlorine, and calcium hypochlorite does not make it a bleach. That tits industrial manufacturer’s label it as such also means nothing. I regularly drink inappropriately named acidic drain cleaners to relieve constipation. That the public health agencies all over the world recognize MMS’ risks as poisoning, renal failure, reduction of the ability of the blood to carry oxygen, abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea doesn’t mean they know what they are talking about. To prove it, I volunteer myself along with everyone to sign this petition for a public demonstration where each person will consume a gallon of undiluted sodium chlorite without any deleterious health effects. Then, they will have to accept it as evidence of our correctness.
And this even with people promoting the petition. It seems safe to say that MMS does not have a broad base of support.
I can not recall anything which has been touted as a method to “recover” children from autism has ever been publicly rejected by groups promoting so-called “biomedical” approaches. But here’s a chance to step up to the plate.
