Remember the fake supplement OSR #1? It’s still being developed

5 Apr

A few years ago a fake supplement was marketed to autism parents for use on their children. The “supplement” was called “OSR #1”, OSR for “oxidative stress releif” or something to that effect. The name was a bit of a dodge, just as packaging it as a supplement rather than a drug was a dodge. It was/is a chelator. The chemical used–a novel synthetic chemical–was developed for use in environmental heavy metal polution.

This is obvious but worth noting: one can not “supplement” one’s intake of a chemical that humans have never been exposed to before.

If you remember OSR #1, you probably remember that the drug was pulled from the market. But you may be surprised to hear that it may be about to resurface.

The FDA found out that this chelator, this drug, was being sold as a supplement (which avoids thorough tests for safety and efficacy). The FDA sent the Boyd Haley, whose company was selling the “supplement” a warning letter that made it very clear:

The claims listed above make clear that OSR#1 is intended to affect the structure or any function of the body of man or other animals. Accordingly, OSR#l is a drug under section 201(g)(1) of the Act, 21 U.S.C. § 321(g)(1). Disclaimers on your website, such as “OSR#l® is not a drug and no claim is made by CTI Science that OSR#1® can diagnose, treat or cure any illness or disease,” do not alter the fact that the above claims cause your product to be a drug.

Moreover, this product is a new drug, as defined by section 201(p) of the Act, 21 U.S.C. § 321(p), because it is not generally recognized as safe and effective for use under the conditions prescribed, recommended, or suggested in its labeling. Under sections 301(d) and 505(a) of the Act, 21 U.S.C. §§ 331(d) and 355(a), a new drug may not be introduced or delivered for introduction into interstate commerce unless an FDA-approved application is in effect for it. Your sale of OSR#1 without an approved application violates these provisions of the Act.

emphasis added.

Even as a supplement, OSR#1 appeared to be mislabled. Customers were not fully informed of potential side effects, per the FDA letter:

Your website states that” [s]ome reports of temporary diarrhea, constipation, minor headaches have been reported but these are rare and the actual causes are unknown,” as well as “OSR#1 is without detectable toxicity” and “OSR#1® … has not exhibited any detectable toxic effects even at exceptionally high exposure levels.” However, animal studies that you conducted found various side effects to be associated with OSR#1 use, including, but not limited to, soiling of the anogenital area, alopecia on the lower trunk, back and legs, a dark substance on lower trunk and anogenital area, abnormalities of the pancreas, and lymphoid hyperplasia. Based on these animal studies and side effects known to be associated with chelating products that have a similar mechanism of action to OSR#1, we believe the use of your product has the potential to cause side effects, and the before-mentioned website statements falsely assert that the product does not have the potential to cause side effects. Therefore, these statements render your product’s labeling false or misleading. As such, OSR#1 is misbranded under section 502(a) of the Act, 21 U.S.C. § 352(a).

Mr. Haley’s company reportedly sold about $1.5M of OSR#1 as a supplement from his company CTI Science. I saw reports that OSR#1 was selling for about $2/pill so that’s maybe 750,000 pills. That’s a lot for somethiing untested for safety or efficacy. CTI appears to be a shortened version of the original name of the company: Chelator Technologies, Inc.. Chelators are drugs, not supplements.

All this said, CTI Science doesn’t appear to exist any more. If you go to the old website,, you get directed to a non operating website,

But obviously I haven’t written all this to say that CTI Science doesn’t exist. It’s not ermesmedical (as their link would suggest), it’s EmeraMed. No idea why they have this confusion over ermesmedical/emeremed. That said, Emeramed describes themselves as:

EmeraMed Limited is a biotechnology firm developing the antidote – heavy metal chelator and antioxidant – Irminix® (Emeramide). The Company is working to obtain marketing authorization in the EU and the US for the treatment of mercury toxicity. Phase 1 and Phase 2a clinical studies have been performed.

They have offices in Ireland, Swedend and the US (Kentucky–home of Boyd Haley). But no mention on the website about who is involved with the company, which I find rather odd. They note that the drug is not yet approved, but that they may be able to supply it to people under an “early access program”. Yes, why wait for actual approval and confirmation of safety and efficacy. This would be for use as a chelator–no mention of work as an autism treatment. There never was a good reason to use this for autism. Boyd Haley was long a proponent that autism is a form of mercury poisoning. Put simply, Boyd Haley was wrong. Very clearly wrong.

Mr. Haley and others may not be named on their website, but on SEC documents, he is named as part of Ermes Medical. If I read this document correctly, they have raised over $3.5M for the company.

As noted in their literature, they have been involved with clinical trials. For mercury poisoning. In Ecuador. No small irony there: many of Mr. Haley’s supporters complain that “big pharma” performs their clinical trials (or experiments, as his supporters would characterize them) in developing countries.

They are still pursuing patents for the treatment neurological disorders. No trial that I have found. Likewise for evidence of efficacy in humans. But a patent application.

A similar patent for treatment of COPD.

Should OSR#1 (under whatever new name) be approved for chelation, we can expect that it will return to the fake autism treatment world. Many still subscribe to the failed idea that autism is caused by mercury poisoning. That idea, pushed by Mr. Haley and others, was based largely on the idea that as mercury exposure from infant vaccines increased, so did the rate of identified autism. Biologically the idea was clearly wrong (autism and mercury poisoning are not similar). Also, even though mercury was removed from infant vaccines, autism rates have not fallen.

All that clear logic said, there still are people who chelate as an “autism treatment” and a new product will almost certainly cause a spike in the numbers trying chelation.

So, yeah, OSR#1 is gone. Except it may return soon under a new name. And likely a higher price tag. And it still won’t be a real treatment for autism.

    So this man who complains vaccines are not tested and dangerous marketed a chelator as a food supplement without it being tested on humans, hid the fact that it had risks when tested on animals, and is now trying to get it approved so he can sell it to parents of children with autism as a treatment, while working to convince them autism has to do with heavy metal poisoning, while attacking Dr. Offit claiming he’s acting for profit motives. That’s about it?

    • Sullivan (Matt Carey) April 5, 2017 at 21:49 #

      Pretty much.

      Plus he was very big on stigmatizing language. He tried to coin the phrase “mad child disease” (spin on mad cow disease) for autism.

      Basically he got to make $1M in sales to help fund his company by selling it as a “supplement”. All the FDA did was making him go back to do what he should have done in the first place. No punishment.

  2. chris May 16, 2017 at 08:14 #

    This really is a disgrace. He was not punished for his actions. Autism is not an illness that can be cured with a pill!

        I have watched many hours of Dr. Boyd Haley and Dr. John Bergman for discussing mercury poisoning and OSR is safe for a chelation because it is natural minerals. The only people being impacted by these comments of OSR are the drug companies and people that profit from vaccinations. Get over it. People have a right to try it!!

      • Sullivan (Matt Carey) June 17, 2018 at 21:33 #

        Either you didn’t understand or Haley was lying.

        OSR is a completely synthetic chemical not found in nature.

        And “natural minerals=safe” is just so wrong.

        Please tell me you only treat yourself with this bogus treatment and bad logic. Because you clearly don’t know what you are doing.

    Funny, how many Autistic Kids have been CURED over the last 18 years, not improved, and not just managing symptoms, cured, by chelating out Mercury from their bodies, I see a new success story close to every week, and I am barely online these days. See a TINY sampling of such kids here:

    Also, Mercury was NOT removed from all vaccines, this is a very uniformed statement and exactly what the crooked CDC and the like want people to believe, and yet the truth is right there on their website!

    • Sullivan (Matt Carey) December 6, 2017 at 20:09 #

      I literally laughed out loud at your comment.

      I’ve been hearing “kids are cured of autism by chelation…” (or cured by other fake cures) for well over a decade.

      Wow. You read testimonials on the internet. Sure.

      Here’s the thing–the autism parent community, even those who follow quack cures, abandaned chelation years ago. You can find a few fools still subjecting their kids to this abuse, but it’s gone.


      It didn’t work. Plain and simple. If it had worked, people would still be doing it. No, they’ve moved on to other abusive, dangerous and useless cures. Because people like you, Jason, go around the internet with your ignorance and claim that these fake cures work.

      Are you willing to compensate any family that sees an adverse reaction to chelation on their kid?

      No. Because you are a gutless, ignorant fool who trolls sites for the disability community posting your crap. And nothing more.

      • Big Daddy May 27, 2018 at 11:11 #

        Sullivan, I literally laughed on the floor rolling around for your comment, “Are you willing to compensate any family that sees an adverse reaction to chelation on their kid?”

        How comical! Were you aware that vaccine manufacturers are immune from having to compensate people for adverse reactions caused by THEIR vaccines? Obviously not, otherwise you wouldn’t made such a stupid comment. Next time adequately do your research before making a comment on this subject. Moron idiot.

      • Sullivan (Matt Carey) May 28, 2018 at 17:35 #

        There is a vaccine compensation program in the United States. It is funded by an excise tax levied on vaccine manufacturers.

        So, yeah, vaccine manufacturers do compensate people who have adverse reactions. This is true even though the program is administered by the US government. The money in the Trust was paid by the manufacturers.

        Perhaps you may want to do some actual research before typing “how comical!”? You know, so you can avoid spreading misinformation you probably picked up from some credulous website.

        By now you would have realized (if you were actually using analytic skills) that I included the comment you quoted precisely to point out that people like you are hypocrites. Ignorant hypocrites. Who go around defending abuse of disabled children (which is what MMS is) and don’t take responsibility for the harm you cause.

      • Sullivan (Matt Carey) May 28, 2018 at 17:40 #

        Also, let me point out that you came to a disability focused website and decided to waive your bigot flag high.

        “Moron idiot”.

        Those are stigmatizing terms against people with intellectual disabilities.

        This is EXACTLY equivalent to going to a site focused on racial equality and using racial epithets.

        My kid, who is very challenged by intellectual disability, is a far better person than you.

        Now go off and spread your ignorance and bigotry else where. You are a prime example of the horrible people who comprise as large segment of the anti vaccine movement. Trolling disability sites.

      • Sullivan (Matt Carey) May 28, 2018 at 17:46 #

        So, “big daddy” you are now faced with a choice.

        One, do what my child (who would have been labeled with terms like moron or idiot back when they were clinical terms) can do: learn from your mistakes. Also: apologize.

        Or, you can show that your gift of intelligence (because you did nothing to earn it, it is a gift) was wasted on you. And dig in your heels and refuse to acknowledge that you are an ignorant bigot.

        I’ve been at this too long to expect you to use your gifts.

        Which is why I respect my kid and not you.

    • Dana Welch June 14, 2018 at 13:39 #

      CDC did announce that there is thimerosal aluminum for a preservative in all vaccinations. I recognize that there is many loss to consider when bringing out such truths while impacting people’s lives.

      • Sullivan (Matt Carey) June 17, 2018 at 21:37 #

        Now I’m pretty sure you are trolling.

        “Thimerosal aluminum”? No such thing.

        Thimerosal is not in all vaccines. It would kill live virus vaccines.

  6. Susan February 3, 2018 at 03:07 #

    Apparently, you have also not delved into the work and patients of Dr. Amy Yasko. Or Dr. Stephanie Seneff of MIT, both of whom also confirm the very real and huge role Mercury plays in all brain disorders, not just autism, and not just the metal Mercury. We all now know that autism is of multi factoral cause, including genetic predisposition due to impaired detox pathways, allowing environmental toxins including Mercury, to damage neurons. OSR, now NBMi, particularly performs effectively in binding and removing mercury and lead. What a shame that you would put a negative spin on such important work. Additionally, check with Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt, who is currently treating patients overseas and getting excellent results.

    • Sullivan (Matt Carey) April 1, 2018 at 18:22 #

      Yeah, I’m familiar with Yasko. Her RNA drops were a very popular scam 10 years ago.

      Stephanie Seneff is a great example of the sort of junk science that convinced me that there is no substance to the “vaccines cause autism” debate. She’s lucky to be at an academic institution. Without tenure, she’d be unemployed. In the real world, people who are that bad at their jobs get laid off.

      The fact that you think these are legit sources of information demonstrates you don’t understand (or haven’t bothered to actually read beyond the titles) their work. Seriously–they are that bad.

  7. Believe February 28, 2018 at 08:25 #

    ‘Biologically the idea was clearly wrong (autism and mercury poisoning are not similar).’ That is comically inaccurate. The symptoms are nearly indistinguishable. How many babies have to be 100% cured from autism, via chelation, before you see the truth?? Note: i am not a fan of OSR, however 1000s of people have recovered from autism via oral chelation with ALA.

    • Sullivan (Matt Carey) April 1, 2018 at 18:07 #

      “‘Biologically the idea was clearly wrong (autism and mercury poisoning are not similar).’ That is comically inaccurate.”

      Find me one toxicologist who says they are even close. Not some alt-med practitioner who says so, or some MBA like Mark Blaxill who publishes in non reviewed journals.

      “How many babies have to be 100% cured from autism, via chelation,”

      Answer: zero.

      How many have been 1% cured using chelation?

      Answer: zero.

      Chelation was a big thing (as in 10% or so of autism parents subjected their kids to this) when I started in this topic. Now it’s almost zero. If it worked, it wouldn’t have died out.

      I don’t just “believe”. I check. And have been for well over a decade.

    I am a former nurse and am now an autism consultant (my husband is a physician) and the only reason our son, who was diagnose with SEVERE AUTISM by the Mayo Clinic, is now recovered is BECAUSE OF OSR#1. And when we has OSR in our home, we used it for a wide variety of things such as burns, poison oak, etc. only to see UNBELIEVABLE, FAST healing take place. There are so many HUGE errors in the article; ones that average lay people would not pick up on. So congratulations, you made a villain out of something that is absolutely wonderful and could have helped SO MANY with Alzheimers, autism and other ailments that have a heavy metal component. Hang out with BIg Pharma much or just on their payroll?

    • Sullivan (Matt Carey) November 1, 2018 at 18:50 #

      Ah, I must be a Pharma shill because I disagree with you.

      It’s slurs like that that helped show me that you anti-vaccine activists have no substance.

      OSR#1 was a drug, a chelator, that was sold as a “supplement”. Absolutely mislabeled. Never went through actual safety testing. But, hey, I was supposed to experiment (EXPERIMENT) on my kid with that because Boyd Haley doesn’t like vaccines? Not on my watch. My kid deserves the best. Being a lab rat is not the best.

      • Debi Smth November 1, 2018 at 21:14 #

        ” Never went through actual safety testing.”

        Gadolinium, a toxic metal used in MRI contrasting was supposedly safety tested 30 years ago before approval, and now that we have urinalysis testing available, we can dispel the FDA/drug manufacturer/radiologist’s lie that the toxic metal is excreted within 2 days of injection. Many people are now, unfortunately too late, putting two and two together with their symptoms that they are being poisoned by the gadolinium, which has no biological function or reason to be in the body. Check out Educate yourself.

        So much for your trusted “safety testing”.

      • Sullivan (Matt Carey) November 1, 2018 at 22:24 #

        Oh, so it’s OK to experiment on disabled children because you don’t understand logical comparisons?

        You appear outraged on Gadolinium (which you don’t fully understand), but think that gives a pass to OSR#1?

        You and your dogmatic insistance on the ‘gold’ standard as perscribed by that corrupt organisation- FDA!
        Dr Haley is a superb scientist who was a darling to the scientific community so long as he played by their tune! Once he found out the truth about vaccines and Thimerosal and spoke out, he was quickly and covertly dropped like a hot potato! Because the status quo must go on!
        I say if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck tgen it must be a duck ! Thus if a supplement works and brings results then its a CURE, by whatever name u wish to call it and despite not having gone to your dogmatic ‘trials’ Which of course serve a double purpose one of which is to keep outsiders out! ( such as proff. Haley! You need to stop bullying with this public website, folk who desperately need help and dont mind taking the role of lab rats as their lives are not worth living anyway! And taking a risk may just bring them the cure they have been seeking for many many years without respite. In my case over 25 years you moron!

      • Sullivan (Matt Carey) December 31, 2018 at 21:09 #

        Dr Haley, the guy who said that my kid suffers from “mad child disease”? Superb scientist? Hardly. I’ve worked with superb scientists for my entire career, and Haley doesn’t measure up.

        I don’t consider OSR to be bunk because of the FDA.

        OSR was a synthetic chemical, developed to treat mining waste. It was repackaged as a “supplement”. Tell me, how do you “supplement” your intake of a chemical that your body has never seen? (answer: you don’t. It was a lie to call it a supplement).

        So, you are OK, taking a substance that has completely avoided safety testing? And defending it online?

        OSR is a “CURE” you say? Not a supplement? That makes it a drug. Why didn’t Haley do actual drug safety testing on it then?

        And, go away. You come to a disability focused blog and use stigmatizing language like “moron”? You stink. Seriously, you are banned.

      • doritmi January 1, 2019 at 03:53 #

      yes, it cures autism, poison oak and burns! It does everything! Just read the anonymous people pushing it on the internet! (i.e. I don’t believe you. Whenever people claim that something cures everything, it’s time to be skeptical)

      I will note that OSR is not available for sale and hasn’t been for years. Odd that you have a ready supply. (i.e. I see this as evidence that you are lying)

      “There are so many HUGE errors in the article; ones that average lay people would not pick up on. ”

    Ugh…this is all just so sad. Is there anyone who gives a damn about people instead of money and fame, huh? Anyone? I don’t think so. I don’t think anyone in this evil world
    will ever work to find a cure just for the sake of saving lives. It’s all about the funding. No funding, then why find a cure? If there’s funding, then why rush to find a cure while the cash is rolling in?
    Clearly there are dishonest men and women in both the allopathic and homeopathic medical industries. Their motivation? Greed and prestige; no real care or concern for those who are suffering whatsoever, only feigned regard, which masks their real care and concern for their enrichment. Wasn’t there recently an oncologist that was sent up the river for murdering patients who had good insurance, convincing them they had cancer, or giving them extremely high doses of poisons? How is he any better than the parents that give their children an unapproved “miracle pill”? They both prey upon hopes and fears. Well, I guess “Dr. Death” used FDA approved poisons to torture patients, which is so much better than unapproved poisons. No one wants to take responsibility for their “treatments” — so called. If a patient dies under cancer treatment, it’s the cancer that killed them, not the cancer causing treatments. If they are fortunate enough to live, it’s the poisons that saved them. It’s all about liability and how you spin it. I wish I was better at chemistry, then maybe I could follow along and understand better, but I’m not. It’s all just so sad. Truly the LOVE of money is the root of all evil.

    Ran across an article that mentioned Irminix (formerly OSR) and ended up on this website (via google) in search of additional information regarding Irminix and I must say… the comment section was an interesting read to say the least. Incidentally, the debate here kind of reminds one of the “Peptide-T” debate seen in the movie, “Dallas Buyers Club…which (imho) begs the question… if people are willing to try Irminix (based on the fact it was previously sold as a supplement until the FDA changed protocol), then why not let those desperate enough to try it, go ahead and try it and just sign a simple waiver!!? Honestly, why bother with all the hostile debating… if you’re against using Irminix, then don’t use it… but why fight so hard against letting someone else use it, especially if they’re willing to sign a waiver!!?

    • Sullivan (Matt Carey) March 11, 2019 at 19:16 #

      Did you notice that this website is disability focused?

      Parents were subjecting this experimental, synthetic, mislabeled drug to their disabled children. Show me where those children signed a waiver. They didn’t.

      It’s not hostile to point out that the drug was mislabeled and untested.

      It’s not hostile to criticize the man making money off this for what was clearly unethical behavior.

      You want to gamble your health and forgo safety testing, go ahead. You are a fool.

      That said, you are an ignorant fool. You are completely wrong and the fact that you’ve been taken in by the OSR scam does not speak well to your ability to sift fact from fiction.

      ” go fuck yourself or at least don’t procreate you asshole!”

      There it is. The true dignity and elegance of the advocate for child abuse, in all his fetid glory. I thank you for revealing the slime within your soul. I hope no children ever have the misfortune of encountering you, and that your parents can forgive themselves for what they released upon the world. Live forever in your own filthy mind

    If anyone is unhappy with the performance of OSR, please contact me [edited]. I’m happy to buy whatever leftover supply you have. Thank you.

      you are a fool. OSR is just junk. You want to buy a fake medicine that was never really tested for safety or efficacy. It was mislabeled as a “supplement”.

      But you believe.

    • Thomas October 4, 2019 at 19:23 #

      “name removed” – indeed. OSR was rigorously tested by feeding it to the neighbor’s cat. What more mark of its effectiveness would one need?

      • Sullivan (Matt Carey) October 21, 2019 at 23:44 #

        If memory serves, it was tested on goldfish and mice. The adverse events from the mice were not fully reported.

    This is sadly, so clearly a disinformation site, an apologist for big pharma, and a slanderer of good healthcare.

    You are talking out your $%#, osr is not fake. Here’s a study proving it’s efficacy.
    Your facts are also wrong, It wasn’t sold as osr#1 it was sold as NBMI, he released it as a dietary supplement so people who needed it could actually get it relatively cheap and it’s saved thousands of lives, if he really was as greedy as you are depicting him he would have went straight to clinical trials to sell it as an overpriced pharmaceutical.
    It’s the most advanced and safest chelator there is while doctors who do IV chelation with dmsa can do even more damage through redistribution, osr forms a permanent bond eliminating this possibility.
    Heavy metal toxicity isn’t even thought in medical schools so doctors don’t have a clue about the harm these metals can cause, I know mercury toxic people who’s very existence is a living hell, there bed bound unable to walk in excruciating pain every second and there recovering with osr, I know another guy, a personal trainer in his 50’s who after having an amalgam removed woke up with excruciating pain throughout his whole body from the mercury, I got a lead induced toxic brain injury twenty eight years ago and have endured decades of unimaginable suffering and psychiatric hell, I wasted over a decade with doctors and psychiatrists and none of there treatments ever worked, I was practically begging for ect treatment it was so severe, one year on osr and I’m almost fully recovered.

    I don’t know why you have slandered Boyd Haley in this article when he truly just wants to help people, he is a great guy, he replies to almost every email he receives from people sick and suffering, he recommends colleagues close to there location, he has invented a compound that is literally saving lives and released it as a dietary supplement not for corporate greed.
    I can’t speak on the causes of autism but I do know of people who are having success using osr on there kids.

    • Sullivan (Matt Carey) February 18, 2020 at 18:45 #


      I’d feel bad that you were so scammed if it weren’t for the fact that you’ve gone into “true believer” mode and are now acting as a shill for this.

      Let’s go through your post.

      1) OSR was tested as a chelator. From the paper you cited

      Herein we report on such a chelator, N,N′-bis(2-mercaptoethyl)isophthalamide (NBMI), and, using an animal model, show that it prevented the toxic effects associated with acute exposure induced by injected mercury


      2) ” he released it as a dietary supplement”. It “supplements” what, exactly? Where in the human body is this compound produced? Where is it ingested in food? Answer–no where. Calling it a supplement was a scam. It allowed people to sell this without testing for efficacy or safety.

      But, apparently, you don’t care that disabled kids were experimented upon with this approach. Good for you. You have no ethics.

      3) ” it’s saved thousands of lives”. You probably believe that. Believe. You have zero proof.

      4) “It’s the most advanced and safest chelator there is”. So in your mind this is a drug. It is not a supplement. Your data on safety?

      5) “Heavy metal toxicity isn’t even thought in medical schools so doctors don’t have a clue about the harm these metals can cause”. Why make statements that show that you are totally ignorant? Ever heard of the American College of Medical Toxicology? An association of medical doctors who were trained in the specialization of treating intoxication (of which, mercury intoxication is included)

      6) ” I got a lead induced toxic brain injury twenty eight years ago and have endured decades of unimaginable suffering and psychiatric hell, I wasted over a decade with doctors and psychiatrists and none of there treatments ever worked” And, yet, you never sought out a medical toxicologist? I can’t tell if you are lying or just very, very poorly informed.

      My guess is that you had issues and some alternative-to-medicine practitioner told you it was lead intoxication.

      7) ” he has invented a compound ” He didn’t. The compound was invented by someone else at his university. For cleaning up mining waste. He just decided to make money off of it, quickly by avoiding things like safety studies, by selling it as a treatment.

      “I can’t speak on the causes of autism but I do know of people who are having success using osr on there kids.” Ah, ignorant anonymous man on the internet knows people who have had success with this. Great. I’m willing to offer my kid up for experimentation by Boyd Haley based on that.

      Stop shilling. Especially on autism focused forums. Please. You are actually doing harm.

      Here’s the thing–autism is NOT mercury intoxication. Boyd Haley was one of the prime instigators of that lie. Because of him, many thousands of disabled children were chelated, including at least one death. Animal studies showed that chelating someone who doesn’t actually have heavy metal intoxixation can lead to a loss of cognitive ability. So, yeah, Boyd may have shaved a few IQ points off thousands of disabled kids. Not my hero.

    If it is not working, why there are plenty of people using it for heavy-metal poisoning?
    If emeramide is not working, do you have other options? The heavy metal poisoning has happened before for poor pipe.

    What Is Emeramide?
    Cas number: 351994-94-0

    Molecular Weight: 284.4g/mol

    Molecular Formula: C12H16N2O2S2

    Emeramide, also known as BDTH2, is a white to off-white solid. It is one of our recently developed novel active melocules. It is a lipid-soluble antioxidant and a novel heavy metal chelator (Mainly used for mercury poisoning).

    What heavy metals Emeramide can chelate?
    Scientific studies show that it can chelate mercury, lead, cadmium, copper, manganese, zinc, iron.

    Mercury (Hg), especially from the groundwater, goal ore, wastewater of battery-recycling plants, coal tailings, and contaminated soil can be effectively chelated by emeramide.

    Check emeramide details:

      “If it is not working, why there are plenty of people using it for heavy-metal poisoning?”

      Using it? As in present tense? Wow. That would mean it’s being illegally sold, right?

      And, you admit it is a chelator, not the “supplement” it was labeled as. So, you trust your health to someone who lies. Good for you.

  18. WordGirl Fan July 31, 2020 at 15:26 #

    OSR#1 was a fantastic chelator/antioxidant in its time.
    It’s dissappearance was tragic to those who benefitted from it — other chelators are much harder on the body and not as effective.
    It is good that it will be available in the future, but time is lost for many who needed it post 2011.

    Freedom and liberty are important to all, even medical professionals.

    • Sullivan (Matt Carey) August 2, 2020 at 22:55 #

      So you admit it is a chelator.

      Funny how it was sold as a “supplement”. Funny as in something akin to fraudulent. So, you trust your health to people who lie and profit from you. Good for you.

      • Kokot July 27, 2021 at 17:33 #

        LMAO, Love those looser comments, absolotely bitchslapping anyone who tries to tell you the truth, what you dont understand what chelation is or rather maybe do a challange round and try it, experience it if it moves metals around your body by seeing side effects, it is real, and no words can argue against your own experience

      • Sullivan (Matt Carey) April 16, 2022 at 03:49 #

        Classic denialist nonsense. “Bitchslap” is a nice way to try to attack those with whom you disagree.

        OSR was a fake supplement. It was mislabeled to avoid doing actual safety studies. But with people like you defending charlatans, they will always make money.

    What ever happened to just Right to Try? Why do parents have to just accept their child is Gone? Autism rates skyrocketed for a reason…

    <comment snipped to reduce the amount of misinformation on this site.

    • Sullivan (Matt Carey) March 3, 2021 at 18:31 #

      “I am going to experiment on my child with this clearly misrepresented compound” is NOT a “right to try” question.

      • Dorit Reiss March 3, 2021 at 18:37 #

        And children with autism are not “gone”.

    • Johan March 14, 2021 at 21:29 #

      Why should autistic people just accept that their parents are just gone – that all the love and affection those parents once gave has been replaced by disgust and a desire to poison or shock them into submission? Should autistic people have the right to try on their parents any treatment that might bring them back to normal?

    The author forgot about the significance of amalgam fillings.

    That umbilical cord delivers mercury straight to the developing fetus.

    Significant enough for your consideration?

    It seems Matt Carey is arguing that post-birth exposures are the only factors to consider when discussing or analyzing mercury toxicity.

    • Sullivan (Matt Carey) April 16, 2022 at 03:50 #

      So many fans of the charlatan who mislabeled OSR as a “supplement” in order to avoid proper safety studies.

      Keep trying to confuse things with your attacks. But the facts are the facts, OSR was a scam.

  21. Eccentric July 11, 2021 at 09:08 #
