It's things like this that reflect the need to limit peoples "freedoms". The kids shouldn't be burdened by the parents stupidity. Parents aren't "free" to murder their children horribly! + 2 Votes To answer your title question CharlieSpencer_Palmetto Updated - January 14, 2013 at 11:54pm PST I suspect those parents also have no form of medical insurance or options for assistance. They're desperate and grabbing at straws, and this snake oil may be all they can afford. They're likely not chemists and aren't aware of the effects of the product. Unless the 'anyone' you refer to are the manufacturers. In that case, I have no clue. + 0 Votes It cures loads of other stuff, too neilb@uk January 13, 2013 at 10:21pm PST Cures for malaria, cancer, diabetes, arthritis, shingles, warts going hard and dropping off, and AIDS patients in debilitated conditions going back to work. all have been attributed to Miracle Mineral solution. A teenage girl, overweight with depression and failure to develop breasts, was given Miracle Mineral Supplement. The next day her breasts started to grow. After another dose 4 days later she had the first period after 6-months, her breasts were fully developed, her depression lifted, and she started losing weight. Helps with toothache, and makes stored heavy metals soluble so that they can more easily be expelled. Drink for abscessed teeth, infected gums, pyorrhea, sore throat, sinus infections, inflammatory and infective skin conditions and burns. And for psoriasis, scleroderma, leukoderma/vitiligo and alopecia or autoimmune-related baldness, dribnk and rub on. For bowel cancer or inflammatory bowel diease, drink it AND use it as an enema. so, how does it work? The main beneficial effect with autoimmune diseases may be due to an ability of sodium chlorite to control the pleomorphic microbes which are not only a root cause of autoimmune diseases but also of cancer. Oh, and it kills cold and influenza viruses. DON'T MOCK WHAT YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND You realise that if Obama can get this stuff approved by the FDA - who are, of course, blocking it because they are in the pay of Big Pharma - you could get Medicare for $45.03. + 0 Votes aren't even able to plead for help or express their pain and suffering. aidemzo_adanac January 14, 2013 at 4:28am PST I think there maybe some very severe cases where that was true but, having known dozens of autistic people in my life, that's not the case for most. Most people with autism are merely years behind their true age. Such as a 19 year old who's has the metal capacity of a 12 year old. One of my closest and oldest friends has an autistic son who's 15 but his autism only sets him back a couple of years. So while I will not make light of the main topic, causing autistic children to create BLEACH in their stomach, it is actually extremely uncommon, from what I understand, for an autistic person to be so debilitated that they can't scream or speak out. Of course, with the exception of babies. + 0 Votes In all fairness aidemzo_adanac January 14, 2013 at 4:57am PST I am not condoning this practice at all, however the blogger has cast a very sided view on it with his repetition of "drinking bleach" and "bleach enema". Bleach is used safely in most kitchens, bathrooms etc. Diluted accordingly, it may upset your stomach if not properly rinsed but for the most part is completely harmless. Many restaurants etc. still use bleach to clean cooking surfaces. The idea of a few drops mixed with 500ml of water of not anywhere NEAR as shocking as the title, "drink bleach' suggests. I am sure that your local McDonalds uses far more caustic solutions to clean their food prep surfaces. Is it a snake oil remedy? No doubt it certainly seems that way. Is it life threatening? I wouldn't say so, though not exactly pleasant I'm sure. I'm not a chemist or doctor but while bleach is harmful if ingested, such a mild solution of perhaps 250 parts to one, does not seem any worse than what the local pub uses to flush the beer lines once a week. I don't agree it's a working solution, I don't agree with quack medical practices in Haiti (although many people travel the world to for Haitian quacks to rip them off with similar "healings"). I'd put him in the same barrel as a televangelist really, 'healed in the name of the lord, hallelujah!" They are misleading people into giving up their fortunes for the cause too, though with little or no physical harm. I think the parents of the autistic people need to be counselled, they are the ones who are following false hope and letting him practice his "medicine". + 1 Votes Is this the new punishment for swearing?

From the FDA : ""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." High oral doses can cause nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and symptoms of sever dehydration? I honestly figures it would be even worse than that, especially after reading the bloggers comments that Ansu linked to. In Canada it was banned after causing a life-threatening reaction. "Basically, after making it up, you take a few drops of it. You judge if you're getting better by how nauseous you feel after taking it. " Feeling sick yet? Nope, I don't feel too bad at all! Here, try some more. "The inventor and chief advocate of MMS turns out to be one Jim Humble, a man who neatly contradicts the theory of nominative determinism pretty much every time he speaks." LOL, great copy! I have a copywriter friend who writes like that. "In a video transcribed and commented on by blogger Noodlemaz , he declares "I developed a technique for healing by touch," before going on to compare himself favourably to Jesus ("What was it that Jesus Christ did first of all, always? He healed the sick. That is what we will be doing but there is a lot more to it than that.")" LOL, nominative determinism, LOL, priceless! he article just gets better and better as it goes, instead of quoting it all, here's a link: http://www.guardian.co.uk/science/2010/sep/15/miracle-mineral-solutions-mms-bleach The dude wants to set up a church of healing, like televangelists, who are no better that this whacko either ""Look at the Catholics. Their priests have been molesting women and children for centuries and the governments have not been able to stop it. If handled properly a church can protect us from vaccinations that we don't want, from forced insurance, and from many things that a government might want to use to oppress us." Okay, I guess I am gonna keep quoting it, it's good stuff!. He goes on to say about the 100,000 people he cured of Malaria in third world countries, but then how even THEIR missionaries had passed the word around that he was evil and that "sorta slowed things down" LOL, what a maroon! Even in third world countries they said he was evil! This guy makes Jack Kevorkian look like Mother Theresa. I think the nutcase is a more interesting story than the MMS he's promoting.
