MMS - the same as drinking bleach?

Medical News Today: FDA warn about 'life threatening' side effects of 'miracle' cure.
The Food & Drug Administration (FDA) news briefing concerns a product called Miracle Mineral Solution (MMS), which is widely available on the internet.

The product appears under a number of names, including Master Mineral Solution, Miracle Mineral Supplement, Chlorine Dioxide Protocol, and Water Purification Solution.

Although the FDA have not approved the product, sellers promote it variously as antimicrobial, antiviral, and antibacterial.

Promoters advertise MMS as an effective treatment for a range of conditions, including cancer, HIV, autism, acne, malaria, flu, Lyme disease, and hepatitis, despite no evidence from medical research.

    "[I]ngesting these products is the same as drinking bleach. Consumers should not use these products, and parents should not give these products to their children for any reason."

    -- FDA Acting Commissioner Dr. Ned Sharpless

Individuals who have taken MMS have supplied reports to the FDA. The subsequent list of potential side effects includes severe vomiting and diarrhea, life threatening hypotension (low blood pressure), and liver failure.
I understand people seeking out anything as a 'miracle cure' when no other relief can be found, but bleach?

I've heard scummy people on the internet tell someone to drink bleach as a "cute" way of saying they should commit suicide. Marketing such to parents of Autistic kids breaks into another level on the evil scale.

Odysseus, Marketing harmful products to people desperate for some relief, or remission or cure, is absolutely another level on the evil scale. Well said. Always good to hear from ya.
