MMS, now trying to scam the Irish

15 Jul

MMS. Magical Mineral Solution. CD. Chlorine Dioxide protocol. It has many names. And it’s a scam. Hiding behind a “church”. And now the Irish get to battle this.

Magic Mineral Solution isn’t magic and it isn’t a mineral solution. It’s a bleach. And among the various scams is the idea that if you force your autistic kid to drink this bleach or take this bleach as an enema, you can cure your child’s autism.

The Irish Examiner has a story: ‘Miracle solution can cure autism’. It’s about how the proprietor of the “church” that is pushing MMS telling an Irish mother that it is a “fact” that MMS can cure autism….and asking for a hefty donation.

When Ms O Leary asked if MMS “could really cure autism”, she alleges Mr Christopher replied it was not a possibility but a fact — a claim also made about numerous conditions on the Genesis II Church website.

Ms O Leary was then sent an email, giving directions to the seminar, and asking her for a €295 donation.

And also:

In 2012, after three hospital admissions and other incidents linked to MMS, Dr Naren Gunja of New South Wales’ Poisons Information Centre in Australia told the Sydney Morning Herald: “It’s a bit like drinking concentrated bleach. They’ve had corrosive injuries: vomiting, stomach pains, diarrhoea.

“If you drink enough sodium chlorite it causes kidney problems, it could cause death.”

By the way, if someone tells you that MMS isn’t a bleach, yeah, it’s a bleach. Calling it “CD” doesn’t change that.

And if they say it’s safe, they are wrong. If they say it cures autism. Run. Here’s a bit from a recent FDA warning:

•Miracle Mineral Solution. Also known as Miracle Mineral Supplement and MMS, this product becomes a potent chemical that‘s used as bleach when mixed according to package directions. FDA has received reports of consumers who say they experienced nausea, severe vomiting and life-threatening low blood pressure after drinking the MMS and citrus juice mixture.

Irish Central has: Irish warned of poisonous ‘miracle cure’ being peddled by US church (VIDEO). I feel both sad that we in the U.S. didn’t stop this nonsense before it exported to Ireland…and jealous that the Irish and their newspapers are quick to spread the word about MMS.

And, back at the Irish Examiner: Drugs watchdog investigating ‘miracle’ cure.

Ireland’s drugs watchdog is investigating at least two people based in this country who are believed to be selling or administering a “miracle” cure for serious conditions, which is in reality a potent bleach.

The Irish Independent: Irish patients warned ‘miracle cure’ from US church is bleach. And the Southern Star has Warning about Genesis II Church.

MMS got it’s foothold in the autism community through the AutismOne conferences. Here in the U.S., gatherings like AutismOne sell all manner of faux therapies for autism. AutismOne will take just about anyone’s money to present a cure, especially if it is sold as healing “vaccine injury”.

So, with apologies to Ireland. We know this is a scam, but we can’t stop it here. I wish you better luck. Be grateful that your press has jumped to inform you. Our press is still trying to figure out if keeping disabled children from being forced to drink bleach is a worthwhile story.

    I suppose it’s something that some of the victims – eh, costumers – actually complain to the FDA after they see the effects.

    I’m still working through someone giving this to their child.

      You may notice that little-pharma supporters will be quick to tell everyone about VAERS (for reporting vaccine adverse events) but not about the FDA process for reporting adverse effects from “supplements” and the like.

      Also, a very common idea is that if one sees his/her kid suffering from some “treatment”, it’s a good thing. It’s the treatment releasing toxins from the body. It’s not an adverse reaction, it’s a good thing….

    I completely agree. This is not only a scam but a very dangerous one. Life threatening events have already been reported with its use.

    As an aside Archbishop Humble usually posts his schedule for visiting countries/churches on his website. It may be of use to forewarn those that he plans to visit.

    It is appalilng that somebody tries to take advantage of desperate parent with such a transparent and dangerous scam.

      “archbishop”. Yeah, right. And I’m uber-cardinal of LBRB.

    Just be aware that no “treatment” for autism, is too bizarre, too invasive or too dangerous (chemical castration/IV chelation, IV intrathecal stem cell transplants in filthy, unregulated offshore clinics, industrial bleach enemas), for the truly delusional autism biomedical curebies.

      About 10 years ago, there were discussions of one well-known DAN! doctor using exorcism. So, yeah, there are few limits to what can pass as an autism treatment. Groups like AutismOne should be standing up and speaking out against this. Instead, they accept money from those selling these “treatments” and pay Jenny McCarthy to speak abusing parents who don’t follow their path (I assume she’s paid).

      There was a guy who was clearly scamming parents a few years back. He would have parents send him videos of their kids. He would diagnose them with “microvascular strokes”, caused by vaccines of course. AoA accepted his money for ads. Never said a word of warning to their readers. Nor an apology.

      • lilady July 15, 2014 at 20:13 #

        AoA is still accepting ads for bizarre treatments.

        Last week the top banner ad on AoA was for an expensive supplement to protect people from chem trails and the Media Editor’s daily updates are sponsored by a vitamin/supplement packaging factory.

        A frequent advertiser is that stem cell clinic which arranges trips to those filthy, unregulated offshore clinics for parents of autistic children to subject their children to those painful, invasive, dangerous, not-medically-indicated, intrathecal IV stem cell transplants.

        I don’t recall an apology for

      • lilady July 15, 2014 at 21:04 #

        I managed to mess up the last part of my comment.

        “I don’t recall an apology for” any of the bizarre treatments that are advertised on AoA. They’re snake oil purveyors who prey on credulous parents.

      • Sullivan (Matt Carey) July 16, 2014 at 01:14 #

        When has AoA ever apologized? Did they have the guts to apologize to Bonnie Offit? Heck, JB Handley didn’t even have the guts to call Paul Offit or send him an email.

        Apologies take courage. AoA lacks courage. Being strident is not the same thing as courage.

    I have learned a few things about the Genesis II Church from foreign news articles and some Internet chatter. Jim Humble was an ex-Scientologist who was kicked out under vague circumstances. You’ll notice that Genesis II and Scientology are alike in how they threaten critics if they try to infringe on their copyrighted “religious doctrine.”.

    Andreas Kalcker, who is a Genesis II member and appeared with Kerri Rivera at Autism One, is (according to an unconfirmed account) a former stock trader who was dismissed from the Barcelona exchange for fraud ten years ago. He runs a fake NGO called the Earth-Help Foundation.

    Jim Humble has said he was a God in one of his videos, He also is very anti vaxx, along with his side kick Keri Rivera, they are actually creating edpidemics like the measles come back teaching that their bleach cures autism, which is caused by worms, many thusands of families around the world are forgoing vaxinations in favour of bleach to cure what ails, Why aren’t they being held accountable for helping to restart the emergence of these diseases
