Hi folks, it has been long time no post, but I felt I had to share some information when I read about one of the newest (and most extreme) "autism cures" now doing the rounds.

It is called "Miracle Mineral Solution (or supplement)" and in many countries (especially the US) it is being touted as a cure for everything from cancer to AIDS and, inevitably, for autism. It is neither a miracle nor a mineral, though it is a solution, of sodium chlorite. Users are told to "activate" it with citric acid (eg orange juice) which turns it into chlorine dioxide, AKA industrial bleach! They then drink it and are told that the sickness that results is a "sign that it is working".

But for autistic children it is even worse as their parents are being told to give it as a enema. Yes really. Even now, some of the leading lights of the American Biomed-autism-cure movement are telling people to squirt industrial bleach up their childrens bottoms several times a day. Again, they are told that the fever, diarrhoea etc which this causes is a "sign that its working".

You might think I'm making this up but here are some articles about it:

http://www.guardian....ions-mms-bleach

http://en.wikipedia....eral_Supplement

http://www.scienceba...-what-ails-you/

If you google you'll find lots more as well as lots of people selling the stuff with the usual promises.

I'm amazed these people aren't arrested for incitement to child abuse. I have an awful picture in my mind of someone holding down an autisic child and forcing bleach up their bottom in the name of "achieving normalcy" (as they like to say). I ask myself which one of them is supposed to have something wrong with them?

I can't even comprehend anyone, especially specialists would recommend using bleach to to cure any disease...what is the world coming too!!!...

there is a lot of scarey stuff,peddled by witch doctors lots of it coming from America.People with autism and their carers seem to fall for the balony.Paying theses charletons for it. I wonder if some of these people have been trained by Joseph Menegles ideas.They are treating human beings like lab rats
Why can't human society accept autism is something you are born with,inherited from the rellies.

i heard MMS was risky but i hadn't realised how badly it had been peddled. Would also steer clear of the stuff. A number of fibromites are asking about the supplement and im warning them to steer clear.

Even Andrew Cutler warns against using the stuff because it is unproven to work.

scary to think that some will be tricked by this. same as the 'gay cure'. pointless and dangerous in society. more understanding of us is needed and acceptance
