Consumers who have MMS should stop using it immediately, FDA warns

Product contains industrial strength bleach

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is warning consumers not to take Miracle Mineral Solution, an oral liquid solution also known as "Miracle Mineral Supplement" or "MMS."  The product, when used as directed, produces an industrial bleach that can cause serious harm to health.

The FDA has received several reports of health injuries from consumers using this product, including severe nausea, vomiting, and life-threatening low blood pressure from dehydration.

Consumers who have MMS should stop using it immediately and throw it away.  

MMS is distributed on Internet sites and online auctions by multiple independent distributors. Although the products share the MMS name, the look of the labeling may vary.  

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.  

MMS claims to treat multiple unrelated diseases, including HIV, hepatitis, the H1N1 flu virus, common colds, acne, cancer, and other conditions. The FDA is not aware of any research that MMS is effective in treating any of these conditions. MMS also poses a significant health risk to consumers who may choose to use this product for self-treatment instead of seeking FDA-approved treatments for these conditions.  

The FDA continues to investigate and may pursue civil or criminal enforcement actions as appropriate to protect the public from this potentially dangerous product.

The FDA advises consumers who have experienced any negative side effects from MMS to consult a health care professional as soon as possible and to discard the product.

    Hmm does FDA get audited??? If not who job is to get this done?? The president? He forms part of FDA as a government official right?.. so what does the public do?? How can we the people take charge with our own safety and more so the safety of our children?? If anyone knows of any type of organization that is working on fighting for public safety please let me know. Thx..

    From the FDA website:

    "The FDA is responsible for protecting the public health by assuring the safety, efficacy, and security of human and veterinary drugs, biological products, medical devices, our nation’s food supply, cosmetics, and products that emit radiation, and by regulating the manufacture, marketing, and distribution of tobacco products."

    They have several reports of life-threatening injuries from MMS. Health Canada has had similar reports, including one life-threatening situation. www.hc-sc.gc.ca/.../2010_74-eng.php

    MMS has nearly killed several people in the United States and Canada, and those are just the cases they know about. What part of banning it is in disagreement with protecting public safety?
