Illinois to Kerri Rivera: Show that MMS works or stop making claims.

26 Jun

MMS is a scam, plain and simple. And it has been very frustrating to watch as people make grandiose claims with no one making them actually back those claims up.

Which is why I appreciate that the State of Illinois basically asked Kerri Rivera “Put up or Shut Up”. And she chose the latter. At least in Illinois.

NBC Chicago has an article up: State Takes Action Against “Miracle Treatment” For Children

In that article they quote the Illinois Attorney General:

“I’m very thankful that NBC 5 actually brought this to our attention,” said Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan. “Because clearly, you have a situation where there are people, complete quacks, that are out there promoting a very dangerous chemical being given to young children.”

And, further:

Madigan’s office dispatched investigators to a Rivera appearance at a suburban Chicago hotel in late May. After her seminar, they served her with a subpoena, demanding that she substantiate the claims she had made of her protocol’s effectiveness in treating autistic children.

Madigan’s office said Rivera entered into what is known as an assurance of voluntary compliance, where she agrees not to conduct future seminars in Illinois.

Substantiate the claims: put up.

Agree not to conduct future seminars: shut up.

Here’s the agreement.

This autism parent thanks the State of Illinois for stepping up and taking action. MMS is a scam and it is about time people started taking action to stop the overblown claims.

    I guess that takes care of the “just taking a much deserved break” like trotted out by “(Arch-) Bishop” Michael Harrah.

      ^ “line trotted out,” not “like”

    As for Harrah, the “bag protocol” saga is here. It’s a keeper.

      I would start making outlandish suggestions about how next to use MMS, but someone would take it seriously and start doing it.
