FDA warns against using Miracle Mineral Solution

The Food and Drug Adminstration is warning people not to use a supplement that claims to treat diseases ranging from HIV to acne, after receiving reports it is making consumers sick.  When used as directed,  the FDA says Miracle Mineral Solution (MMS) produces chlorine dioxide, a potent bleach often used in industrial water treatment and stripping textiles.  

The FDA has received numerous reports of serious side effects including nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and life threatening low-blood pressure from dehydration. 

MMS is also marketed under the name Miracle Mineral Supplement.  It is distributed on the internet by a variety of companies. Although all the products share the MMS name, the labels look different.   CNN has called the companies for comment, but so far, there's been no response.

The FDA is trying to determine how many people have used the supplement.  "At this point, we are just trying to get the word out and warn consumers," says Elaine Gansz Bobo, spokesperson for the FDA.   She says anyone using MMS should throw it away immediately. 

If you have used MMS and its made you sick, the FDA says you should see a doctor as soon as possible.  The FDA would also like to hear from you.  Click here for more information.

      Chlorine dioxide (CIO2) is a highly effective oxidant in the form of a stable dissolved gas. CIO2 has long been recognized as a very effective antimicrobial for its disinfection and sterilizing properties, and has been approved by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for industrial use as an eco-friendly drinking water treatment and food disinfection. CIO2 attacks micro-organisms, destroys major pathogens (bacteria) associated with gum disease and inhibits their re-growth. No other biocide has proved to control biofilm, responsible for tooth decay and gum disease, better than chlorine dioxide. CloSYS patented CIO2 formula is found in all our oral products, and when used together provide the user maximum oral health.

      I HAVE USED MMS for 3 years! I used to catch colds regularly, and now i have NEVER been sick since i started using it. H1N1 came through and i never caught it. I refused to get immunized, because there are numerous reports of how dangerous, even deadly, the immunization is. (and it's FDA approved)
      I did get a little nauseous, but it went away, and everything's fine. The reason for the nausea is, since MMS kills pathogens and other microorganisms, it can deplete your intestinal microflora. I simply had a probiotic (or some yogurt) and the nausea went away immediately. I only take MMS if i think i may have caught something. Once or twice i have felt a cold coming on, and then took the MMS, and felt myself go through all the cold symptoms in about half an hour. It would normally have been days of bed-ridden agony. It was like an everlasting gobstopper! -a few minutes, of scratchy throat, a few minutes of nasal pressure, a few minutes of aches, and then it was all gone! I recommend it to friends and they invariably get better in an hour or so. They have cured over 50,000 cases of malaria in Africa with this stuff.
      Please only comment if you are speaking from experience, otherwise you have NO credibility.

      This is how evil /incompetent FDA can be. Their usual propaganda spin – Demonize what is good and works and promote toxic crap that makes people sick. FDA heads a damning report saying throw away MMS – it's dangerous – because of the side effects!

      The side effects are part of the process of cure or if you have had too much – because it is powerful.
      It has had over 75,000 documented cases of curing Malaria (thousands of these have been young children), and the testimonies are EVERYWHERE. My family has not been sick for three years – being on the stuff. Plus my family members who take it report amazing cures such as psorisis where 1000's dollars of medication and conventional treatment has failed – a $30 bottle of MMS that lasts for over a year works!!.
      This is the FDA for you – turn a blind eye to the facts and testimonies, not testing it but using PROBLEM(side effects), REACTION(public scrutiny/demonisation), SOLUTION(illegalise MMS) to squash a product that could cure the world – Let's see how much further the sickness industry takes this!

      Stock up on MMS while you can or even better, stamp this rot out in the courts like they are doing for the swine flu vaccine scam. You can get bags of flakesfor $30 which lasts on the shelf for 30 years!!

      How true about gullibility. While over a million people a year die from medical treatment, people flock to their nearest allopathic dispenser of poisons. How many people have died from MMS? None! I have experienced diarrhea and vomiting...I took too many drops and had a lot of die-off. So, should I blame MMS? I had so much energy after taking the MMS. Why are all cancer cures prohibited in this country? Like X714...read The Trial and Persecution of Gaston Naessens...which is legal in Canada...but not here. Royal Rife, Wilhelm Reich, Hoxley, Gerson so many scientist MD.s that were curing cancer and hounded, illegally persecuted by the government because it interferes with pharmaceutical profits. These, and others like him are driven from the US. Which industrialized country has one of the lowest health records? The US, yet the gullible public believes that we are in the top. The present administration has stepped up the war against natural healing...even to going after small farmers who sell raw milk. I am 74 and buy raw milk weekly. I raised my children on raw milk delivered to my door from Mathis Dairy in Atlanta. We are in a fascist system and the gullibles don't recognize it. Support the right to use health products. Denounce fascist systems which prohibit freedom of choice.

The FDA does not want anyone to cure themselves of ANY disease thus giving them more independence from Drs. and government. FDA wants to villainize anything that is a natural cure or intervention for a "scientifical, medically traditional treatment!!" The instructions for taking MMS will tell you that you may become sick and throw up. The instructions inform you what to do it that happens. With chemo or radiation you are STUCK with the side effects until a period of time, not to mention the DAMAGE those treatments do to your body!!!

      I will bet that some form of snake oil is effective in treating something somewhere. The problem is that groups don't do diddly and they actually harm individuals, maybe we need to ban the FDA! MMS is actually very simple science, but it is not intuitive. Any person can find out about it. Malaria kills more children then any other disease ever, so why not 'investigate it'? They wastes billions and MMS costs PENNIES! Our FDA does more harm then good because there is no individual who can take a decision it all has to be by "GROUP CONSENSUS" and groups cannot think and only agree on ideas that groups will easily accept. Only individuals are able to make great inventions and discoveries.

      I wanted to add that as an example, to add both humor and fact, that "Lachesis Mutus" the venom form a snake, is used to treat many symptoms, in humans and animals. It was given to my chihuahua for a left side brain injury after our larger dog accidentally jumped on her head playing. Her hind end was trying to catch up to her front, so she was walking sideways. HE did no surgery, he prescribed this and a mixture called "Traumeel" which is mostly belladonna(a poison if taken in large enough amounts that will kill you when that happens) I also take traumeel or plain belladonna homeopathic for a chronic insomnia problem and it works wonderfully., and traumeel treats menopausal symptoms, pain, anxiety and about a dozen other issues, largely due to it's anti-inflammatory qualities. (it is related to cannabis which also is anti-inflammatory, and both are among the nightshade family, so are potatoes and tomatoes) Fun facts that you may not have known. The injury my dog sustained was not fatal, thanks to the "snake oil" she is doing great and her bottom is no longer trying to win a race with her nose. IN fact, despite the injury, she is the smartest canine I have ever met.
      If I told you her repertoire of tricks, you wouldn't believe me without seeing them.

    Mike and Leo, you are both sheep. I can bet that this DOES work to a degree. The FDA is systematically destroying everything and anything that actually HELPS people with health problems. You have to be a complete IDIOT not to recognize that. They consistently pump out DEATH DEALING POISONS to people and slaughter MILLIONS of people every year and get a slap on the wrist. God forbid they study anything natural that has worked for milleniums across the world to heal. They will NEVER do that. In fact, there is a law they are trying to pass that will make ALL VITAMINS AND MINERALS will need to say 'approved by the fda' which will ulltimately mean we will NOT be able to obtain those and be forced to take such garbage as AVANDIA , VIOXX, and all the other poisons. How do like that? Did they FDA freakin create Vitamin D? NO. They act like they do. They are evil and have no qualms about pumping you with pills until you die. Wake up and research things and do NOT believe ANYTHING the FDA says.

GET the facts , then form an opinion! otherwise, you sound ignorant and mis-educated. The establishment of Big -PHARMA would never let any absolute cure come to the table, because they would be OUT OF BUSINESS and they have immense power of lobby dollars upon our Govt. DUH!

      FDA's just a political spokesthug for corporate pharma, so of course anything related to homeopathy or common sense must be suppressed with denial, deceit or deflection. Things just get worse for any natural cures and treatments, and soon the whole Western world will be awash in pill-popping, cancer-diabetes-ridden couch-potatoed consumer drones. Take vitamin supplements. Where did theses vitamins come from? If they are synthetic, then they won't have the activated potency of naturally-sourced vitamins (Read: WHOLE foods). Not only that, it's easier for corporate food to work in collusion with corporate pharma and give the extracted vitamins to corporate pharma. That's like paying twice for something that doesn't work as effectively as the whole food you started with – you pay for your vitamin- and nutrient-depleted food (bleached flour, white sugar, white rice, etc.), which promotes diabetes, cancer and who knows what else, and you pay for artifically-stabilized vitamins that has of course lost potency. Whole organic food is corporate pharma and, obviously, corporate food's number one enemy. So the FDA's not looking out for your well-being – instead, they are to promote sickness – physical, mental and ecological – to support the corporate agenda. So, instead of supporting the corporate sickness, the first and most effective step to well-being is to buy whole organic food.

      One thing I forgot to mention is how any cure is suppressed by corporate pharma since they cannot make as much money from cures as from ongoing treatment of symptoms. For example, eliminate refined sugar, bleached flour and the like, and you eliminate type-2 diabetes. Refined sugar's easier to store refined – it's shelf life just went from weeks & months to years and years, thereby reducing costs and increasing profit margins. But the negative effect of refined sugars on your blood-sugar levels leads to type-2 diabetes. The molasses that was in the sugar, which contains the nutrients needed to regulate the absorption of sugars, is also sold. After you develop type-2 diabetes, then you need the blood-sugar monitoring devices and band-aid meds for something that never should have developed EVER, naturally or otherwise.

      You can tell by the name.....Waterfalls; from a height, to cascade. MMS; Miracle Mineral Solution, The Discovery of MMS, the Miracle Mineral Supplement (See if you can understand the following related to the "name" .

      Jim Humble, a chemist and metallurgist accidentally discovered the MMS by using a whole bottle of Stabilized Electrolytes of Oxygen (S.E.O.) to immediately cure a companion of malaria during a jungle expedition. S.E.O. contains about 3 % sodium chlorite.

      Humble gradually realized that S.E.O. is too weak and that it does not work by releasing oxygen but rather that it must be acidified to release chlorine dioxide as the active ingredient. This is also how it has been used as a hospital disinfectant. The problem was to find a safe dose and procedure that allowed this most effective antimicrobial to be used for people. Humble ended up using a nominally 28% solution which, because of a nearly 20% sodium chloride content, actually contains only 22.4% sodium chlorite. Because of its miraculous effect in supporting the immune system against invading microbes and parasites Humble called his sodium chlorite the Miracle Mineral Supplement. However, I prefer to call it Miracle Mineral Solution, as supplements require the approval of health authorities, while a solution for treating water does not need to be registered. *SODIUM CHLORITE

      This miracle mineral is not a scam, the FDA is THE SCAM of the century. There is no money in selling MMS, one can buy the ingredients for pennies, even if you consider economy scale no one is going to get rich selling it, but sellers are doing more good then the FDA and their wrong warnings about this. It is safe. The CNN article plays up a false sensational issue, it is NOT as the article FALSELY SAYS: "the FDA says Miracle Mineral Solution (MMS) produces chlorine dioxide, a potent bleach often used in industrial water treatment and stripping textiles. " it does produce Chlorine Dioxide but in the concentrations we use it, it is NOT a potent bleach, and to say 'used in the treatment of industrial water' omits to say that the industrial water is referring to the industrial (large scale) water treatment plants! So it is safe and is known to be safe.

      It is simple science and the FDA got it wrong on this one. They waste BILLIONS of dollars and millions of lives will suffer and die (mostly children) because THEY scam the public and want to shut the door on NEW techniques of treating sickness. It’s a new discovery of application and we should be thanked for testing it extensively. I have not been sick one time since starting to use it. The new protocol is to take 2 drop dose every two hours depending on the level of sickness. We were earlier in a test phase and now we are spreading the word. Malaria can be cured for pennies, not billions of dollars. I want to know WHO in the FDA is responsible for this ruling? The FDA says... somebody had to say/write/decree this non-sense see how easy it is to hide behind these monoliths?

    I first heard about this stuff a few weeks ago and was intrigued by it. I went onto a site (miraclemineral.org) to find out some more about it. The site says that even if the product makes you sick, you should cut down on the dosage but continue to take it. NO LEGITIMATE COMPANY would ever make a claim like that; after all, who is to know if that reaction was caused by the herxheimer effect (the sudden death of huge numbers of bacteria and the subsequent release of toxins as they decay) or a serious allergic reaction?
    I am not a fan of the FDA and I agree that it has ignored the best interest of the public for a long time. However, that doesn't mean that we should react by saying that anything labeled "natural" is safe. Just look at arsenic! Basically, we need more facts before we ban this stuff or extol it, and we need this data to come from unbiased sources.

Off the top of my head I can think of two different prescriptions, from two different doctors, that I was told to do exactly that. If I didnt like the side effects, step back to the previous dose and try increasing it again in a few days. Side effects included: drowsiness (basically narcolepsy), nausea, vomiting, ringing in the ears, sweating, diarrhea. Both drugs with the FDA's stamp of approval, still being sold today.

      The difference is that this product reacts in your body and produces a bleaching agent, and is therefore active in your system. Bleaches used in flour are spent and are longer a bleach when you consume it. You learned this in 3rd grade when you reacted vinegar with baking soda. If you use proportional amounts, the vinegar is spent and no longer vinegar. I'm not claiming to know anything about the by-products of bleaching flour, but claiming that there is bleach in it is ignorant.

      Excuse me gentleman but mms is not a bleach. It may be referred to as a "bleaching agent" but it is not bleach. Sodium chlorite when ingested is only active for a short time (about 1 1/2 hrs.) and when it is used up all that remains is a small amount of sodium (salt) and water as by products. Mms is a cleansing agent for the body. It destroys any pathogens it encounters (except those that naturally occur in the bowells) but will not harm any other cells. Hence the name "Miracle". I agree that there have been many so-called snake oils, and many health scams, but this mms is not one of them. Anyone can make mms right in their kitchen sink! The developer of mms, Jim Humble, holds no copyright to the product and has given permission to anyone that wants to make it, market it or use it, to do so. He is a god fearing man and most definately one of the chosen few who will make it through the pearly gates. Scam? Try putting that word right next to fda, or better yet try a search of FDA Suppression. The real scam will come to light.

    If chlorine-dioxide (activated MMS) is so harmful then why are there soo many articles on nih dot gov espousing the virtues from colds to periodontal disease? Additionally, even Walgreen's sells chlorine-dioxide products such as tooth-paste and mouth rinse. I think the FDA may have misstepped on this one.

      If you looked at the information you would realize the problem with MMS is that you are ingesting the chlorine dioxide. Using it as a mouth rinse might be good to treat your problem but don't drink it. Same with fluoride in toothpaste – good for teeth but don't suck down the tube.

      It's too bad that Tunelyn or what ever it was is so tunnel visioned. I too have been taking MMS for over three years. I had COPD and was at the point where I just wanted to die becasue I couln't breath. I started taking MMS when I had another bout of bronchitus. It not only stopped the progression of the bronchitus but I have not had it since. What it did was to allow my body to slowly increase my immune system. I now have an oxygen reading of 93 which is a miracle. MMS did give me cramps at first but as soon a I lowered the amount of drops (as per the instructions) the cramping went away and then I slowly increased. I do believe that with the FDA it is onkly about the money. They don't care about us...if they did they would examine the evidence from MMS users and find out that it is perfectly safe if taken according to directions (Isn't what what all the other medicines say too?).

      If you would bother to do any research or read the site, it explains perfectly what is in it and explains in detail the science behind it... The government has been using it to kill pathogens for a long time and as has been mentioned elsewhere, it's been found in camping supply stores for ages, to purify water. Ignorant people don't want to look at the documented cases where it has helped tremendously... Only that you can get nauseous and have diarrhea (which is explained thoroughly that it will happen if you take too much at a time or misuse the product.... the nausea is from pathogen die-off ... look up Herxheimer reaction...

    I agree the use of the word Miracle makes this seem like snake oil, but reports from people across the world is that MMS does help. It is helping me and I couldn't be more surprised. It does seem rather like a miracle – perhaps miracle mineral solution is for people as miracle-gro is for plants. By the way, though it is sold in concentrated form, it is taken in very small dosages, and all the suggestions I found are to start with one or two drops and then work up to a maximum of 15 drops, if tolerated. It is mixed with lemon juice or citric acid and then water is added to dilute it. It may create oxygen in the body which is why it may help people with certain diseases or conditions. People, including the FDA, should look into the chemistry of what goes on in the body after MMS is ingested before making claims or statements.
    MMS is 22.4% Sodium Chlorite solution with 28% salts.Each 15 drops of MMS consists of 65 mg total sodium and 166 mg sodium chlorite in distilled water.
    Household bleach is sodium hypochlorite, 6 % and other ingredients 94%. Interesting that we drink chlorinated water and we also swim in chlorinated pools. Good point about white bread and what about the fluorine in our water, toothpaste and children's vitamins?
    As for safety, how many lawsuits have there been against pharmaceutical companies regarding drugs that the FDA assures us were safe but they weren't safe?
    Many figure that since the FDA (or AKA Big Pharma's Pal) is against MMS, it probably does work. So the public will be hurt once again by the FDA and Big Pharma if the FDA takes action to prevent people from using MMS.

    I have used MMS according to the standard protocol from Jim Humble's book, and it has relieved me of several UTIs. This is a chronic problem for me, and I've spent more than enough money on antibiotics that haven't always worked. MMS is safe and effective when used correctly, just like any other medication or treatment. Also keep in mind that the 'side effects' listed in this article are side effects for many, many prescription medications that we see commercials for every day.

    I strongly agree with ":another stupid story"...The FDA who I believe are these three people who decide which and what
    foods and medicines are good for human consumption are the same ones who let cigarettes go on the market and kill millions of people (even to the extent of having commericials promoting them)... Natural products which are used extensively in other
    parts of the world and have been a staple in their diets for thousands of years have not killed people...Fear is the key here and the FDA knows this. Prescription drugs take lives daily yet the FDA is not jumping in the front of the line to extinguish them, but as soon as one person has an allergic reation to a product that may have worked for many others up goes the alert and warning to throw it away...uhhhhh how bout no...

    MMS is no more bleach than table salt which also has chlorine molecule attached to it. I am amazed the FDA stated it is similar to bleach in a dangerous way just because both are oxidizers, one is stable and the other, unstable. Look at the chemistry. What is a real shame is the government's lack of looking at Corexist in the Gulf. Funny how money moves – Big Pharma lobbies for supplements to be blocked, but no one cares about 2 million gallons of dangerous chemicals being dumped in the ocean. Hmmmm.

    I wouldn't trust the FDA on this one. After all, they are the ones that take bribes from the pharmaceutical companies. Look at Niaspan which is the big Abbott cholesterol drug that you see on television these days. Its a vitamin with extenderd release mechinisms that you can get at the grocery store already in the form of extended release niacin. The FDA won't allow that information to be shared though because vitamin companied didn't pay for the FDA's blessing. The only difference is $290 a month and a doctor's signature.

    Safety and efficacy of chlorine dioxide for Legionella control in a hospital water system.
    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17620253

    In a 30-month prospective study, we evaluated the efficacy of chlorine dioxide to control Legionella organisms in a water distribution system of a hospital with 364 patient beds and 74 skilled nursing beds. The number of hot water specimens positive for Legionella organisms decreased from 12 (60%) of 20 to 2 (10%) of 20. An extended time (18 months) was needed to achieve a significant reduction in the rate of Legionella positivity among hot water specimens. At the time of writing, no cases of hospital-acquired Legionnaires disease have been detected at the hospital since the chlorine dioxide system was installed in January 2003. Use of chlorine dioxide was safe, based on Environmental Protection Agency limits regarding maximum concentrations of chlorine dioxide and chlorite.

      And how many is numerous? Apparently not 100's or 1000's. So basically millions are using MMS and a few people got a tummy ache. If only the mortal victims of Pharma like VIOXX could claim the same.

    Chlorine dioxide (CIO2) is a highly effective oxidant in the form of a stable dissolved gas. CIO2 has long been recognized as a very effective antimicrobial for its disinfection and sterilizing properties, and has been approved by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for industrial use as an eco-friendly drinking water treatment and food disinfection. CIO2 attacks micro-organisms, destroys major pathogens (bacteria) associated with gum disease and inhibits their re-growth. No other biocide has proved to control biofilm, responsible for tooth decay and gum disease, better than chlorine dioxide. CloSYS patented CIO2 formula is found in all our oral products, and when used together provide the user maximum oral health.

    Funny thing...you're ALREADY using MMS (Chlorine dioxide) whether you want to or not if you buy meat in a grocery store! Shocker!!

    "In 1967, under the authority of the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA), EPA first registered the liquid form of chlorine dioxide for use as a disinfectant and sanitizer on a variety of sites such as animal farms, bottling plants, food processing, handling, and storage plants. Other industrial uses of liquid chlorine dioxide include:

    bleaching pulp and paper
    bleaching textiles
    washing fruit and vegetables
    disinfecting flume water
    disinfecting meat and poultry
    disinfecting food processing equipment
    sanitizing water
    controlling odors
    treating medical wastes
    treating municipal water
    In 1988, EPA registered chlorine dioxide gas (generated from sodium chlorite, the active ingredient) as a sterilant for use in manufacturing and laboratory equipment, environmental surfaces, tools, and clean rooms."

    http://www.epa.gov/pesticides/factsheets/chemicals/chlorinedioxidefactsheet.htm

    After taking just four 30 minute baths with it (1/2 teaspoon per directions) my heels were perfectly smooth & soft after many years of thick itchy rough callouses. Cost: about 50 cents. Tops. Hubby was impressed!! Also the inside of my ears & my scalp stopped itching. After multiple mosquito bites one night, my MMS bath stopped all that itching too. If people are getting "sick" from it, it usually means they are using too much too fast AND it's working on some pathogen such as fungus, virus or bacteria in the body. After taking it internally for 2 days, a lump in my armpit disappeared that had been there for a couple of years. I'm with the other MMS supporters on this one. I think the FDA is getting scared that MMS is cutting into their pocketbook. A year supply costs about $20. What does 1 presciption cost in comparison? Big Pharma will tolerate NO competition and they are in bed with the FDA. Didn't about 60,000 people die from Vioxx? MMS is said to have cured thousands of cases of Malaria for just pennies a dose. Can Big Pharma claim this? But don't educate yourself about MMS if you prefer being one of the sheep to the FDA/Big Pharma slaughter. Someone mentioned Collodial Silver too. I used 1 bottle over a 2 week period to get rid of Candida. Tried all the dangerous & expensive anti-fungals such as Diflucan from Big Pharma. They did not help. I have learned my lesson after dabbling in Big Pharma. Thankfully I did not become a statistic before I educated myself. Big Pharma is not my religion as it is the religion of many others. I will use whatever works and what I can afford to use for my health. Sorry Big Pharma! Bye Bye Big Pharma. Bye Bye. After taking charge of my own health, this is the best I have felt in years. And I did it all without a doctor or pharmacist. Gasp! And don't even get me started on those "safe" mercury amalgams in my mouth that the FDA thinks are just oh so safe....

    I have used MMS and know others who have also – with great success. If sodium chrlorite can be used in our water supply then if some of the above arguments of it being a bleach is true, we are all drinking bleach daily. Lots of things that are poisonous in high doses are consumed by us every day in much smaller doses. This topic is one that brings out lots of emotion. People are very passionate on one side or the other. I'd encourage people on the "it's a scam/snake oil" side of the argument to keep an open mind. Someone up there said "Some people are so desperate", and you know, that is very true. Have you ever been extremely ill but modern medicine has not been able to give you answers or any relief from your symptoms? I have & I hope many of you never have to experience it – but there's a fair chance you will. That's when you have to start being open-minded and thinking outside the square. I'm highly educated when it comes to formal qualifications and I am now also highly educated from personal experience with many alternative treatments that have given me a great deal of relief from symptoms that modern medicine could do nothing about. Many of these treatment, including MMS, are not sanctioned by the FDA. But they worked and did not harm me. The FDA, just like all of us, has agendas. Consider that they may not have all the answers and may get it wrong sometimes. That is not a conspiracy theory, that is just good common sense.

    EXTREME WARNING - FDA Approved drugs often cause death. Last year 220, 000 deaths occured after someone took a FDA approved drug that was prescribed by a doctor. It's not a secret. It's well document on the internet. Yes, this is me. I discovered MMS. Maybe the fact that I take a few minutes here, now, will influence one single person. That one person is the one to which this message is directed. What I want to know is, are there any people out there that have ever had the thought that maybe sometime in their lives that they will think for themselves? In not it's a simple life. Just let the Government think for you. It must be fun. No resonsibility for self because the Government knows all the answers already. But then the time comes that cancer shows up. Without a thought or question you run right down to your doctor and say, "I know that once you start cutting on me I only have a 3% chance of living 5 years, but cut away I can stand the suffering." Congradulations, you belong to that vast majority of people who would rather die than take a few hours to search the facts. Only ignorant unlearned people deny the value of MMS as they are the ones that always know it all. Learned educated people who investigate MMS and the chemical technology behind it cannot refute it as Chemistry is Chemistry and it works whether you want it to or not. Even learned people can say, "ya I know Jim spent some time in Africa and I know about his claims, but that don't mean a thing. But the learned person that takes a few minutes or an hour or two to look into the chemistry have always said, "Yes I can see the chemical logic behind MMS and the fact is that it has got to work. More than 3 million people tried MMS up to this time last year, and many more since. Never a report of a legitimate death. Now go back and read the first sentences above. --- Jim Humble

      Jim, thanks for positing. Hubby and I have used MMS on and off for the last couple years, and cannot THANK YOU enough for making this information public AT NO CHARGE!! I totally endorse it, have shared it with others, and respect you for the risks you have taken in the process. MMS (Master Mineral Solution as it is now called) has cured me of many chronic issues, genital herpes being one of them.I never thought it could be cured or regressed, whatever has happened to my monthly outbreak, but I've not had one outbreak in two years since using MMS. Candida is another issue that's now essentially history. My husband has been off nearly ALL of his asthma meds (he takes Yamoa powder too) and we are truly grateful to be free of that big pharma bondage.
      People need to wake up and realize that the 'government' and FDA are not really trying to protect us, but only want to line their pockets with our hard earned savings.. Follow the money trail. Rumor has it that Monsanto people are lying in bed with the FDA. Google it and you'll see several sites about it, a big one about Aspartame, another one here: http://www.annieappleseedproject.org/monfdausgovc.html.
      All this to say, don't believe everything you hear in the media, from the government, etc. The FDA has been hounding Jim Humble and the volunteers who help to make MMS available for years in an effort to force him to shut down, and they have already forced him to leave the country just so he can survive.
      We CAN be healthy, free of sickness and disease. Just stop eating FDA approved, mass produced, GMO, processed dead food. How can anyone expect 'dead and processed food' to create and sustain health? Again, the big THREE: Food / Agri Corporations, Big Pharma, and the Medical Industry are all working together to stay rich. Their deep pockets are what is keeping our government and related private corporations (FDA is one of many so called powers) in business.

    I HAVE USED MMS for 3 years! I used to catch colds regularly, and now i have NEVER been sick since i started using it. H1N1 came through and i never caught it. I refused to get immunized, because there are numerous reports of how dangerous, even deadly, the immunization is. (and it's FDA approved)
    I did get a little nauseous, but it went away, and everything's fine. The reason for the nausea is, since MMS kills pathogens and other microorganisms, it can deplete your intestinal microflora. I simply had a probiotic (or some yogurt) and the nausea went away immediately. I only take MMS if i think i may have caught something. Once or twice i have felt a cold coming on, and then took the MMS, and felt myself go through all the cold symptoms in about half an hour. It would normally have been days of bed-ridden agony. It was like an everlasting gobstopper! -a few minutes, of scratchy throat, a few minutes of nasal pressure, a few minutes of aches, and then it was all gone! I recommend it to friends and they invariably get better in an hour or so. They have cured over 50,000 cases of malaria in Africa with this stuff.

And yet the FDA can find time to warn the public about nausea and possible diarrhea. When taking the antibiotics which by the way did not help by CDC guidelines for lyme. I had nausea diarrhea sun sensitivity, got staph, and yeast infection. Please warn the public about antibiotics and take them from the market. Look MMS WORKS that is the reason the FDA is so quick to respond. Big Pharmacy buyout. The FDA is not working for the public they work for the drug companies. Next thing the state police will be raiding and locking people up. UNREAL!!!!!

    I agree that the F.D.A. does frequently protect Big Pharma. It's for that reason that Vioxx was able to kill thousands before it was *voluntarily* recalled. However, even a broken clock gets it right twice a day. MMS is bleach, and it is dangerous. It has killed before, and will do so again. Check out this public debate with Jim Humble in which all of this information comes out: http://healthwyze.org/index.php/component/content/article/460-the-debate-between-healthwyzeorg-and-jim-humble-about-whether-mms-is-a-fraud.html?showall=1

      It's too bad you didn't go into the debate with Jim Humble leaving your unbridled sarcasm behind. I am one of the people who has greatly benefitted from using MMS on a daily basis. As far as that poor woman dying after taking MMS, maybe the bottle from the sailor should have been investigated...who knows what could have been added. It's like trying to blame Tylenol for the poisonings that happened years back. I had COPD so bad that I could not take 5 steps without being totally winded and in severe distress. I really did just want to die. I consistently had bronchitis which kept my lungs filled with fluid. After I began taking MMS, it stopped the bronchitis from advancing and cleared it up. It has been over three years and I have not had another case of it. My health has dramatically improved along with my lung functions. My quality of life has improved in leaps and bounds over what it was. If this truly is a poison (which I don't believe) then I will live out the time I have with a good quality of life versus being written off by the doctors (which they had already done) and slowly suffocating. I, along with probably thousands of people, really have benefitted from this. A friend of mine who had a severe staph infection in his hand, got sick from all the steroids and antibiotics that was prescribed. I sent him a bottle of MMS and he started taking it very slowly. It took him about three months, but it cleared the infection without harming him. It took so long becasue he was taking about 1/3 of what is suggested since his stomach was so trashed from the prescriptions and he didn't want to hurt anymore. It worked. Don't know what else to tell you, except that you should do more reesearch. People in the MMS website testimonials don't want to add their last names for a reason...all the coocoos out there. We wer giver two ears and one mouth for a reason – we all need to listen twice as much as we speak!

    Malaria Kills and will kill again, lyme sickens and handicaps, is the number one vector disease, and will sicken someone as this is written. ! Get real who has died? There is no prove of the hundreds of thousand that have consumed MMS that anyone has died! More have died from prescription drugs regulated by the FDA. Give me a break. Check this site out from Africa, all of this information comes out! http://www.malaria01.org/

    Gosh people I have read some of your post and am quite appalled at some of the half-cocked comments that absolutely come from ignorance of which the FDA knows that MMS is making people well and that cuts in on their drug profits! The side effects are from the release of stored up toxins in the body! I did 20 drops this morning and when I am done with this will be doing 20 more. I don't like the taste or smell but you cannot get a better detox for price or performance. This has been around for a while as water purification drops and by using it as such over time on mining operations in S. America and elsewhere people with Malaria and other maladies no longer had the diseases! As time went on More was found out. It seems that I'm one of the few that read Jim's book and did the research. Find out now and do the research then get you some before it's too late! O'h yea for the other guy that was curious but didn't look for the answer it is sodium Clorite activated with vinegar or citric acid and distilled water. Wake up! Alot of things are too good to be true but this is true!!! You'd be suprised how extensive it is used in the food industry.

    Wake up people... Some of you are so quick to call this a scam when there is so much evidence that it has helped thousands of people... Have you gone to the website and researched it? Have you talked to anyone who has used MMS? Do you fully understand what MMS is actually doing inside your body? Are you going to blindly believe the FDA? Have you emailed Jim Humble asking him about it? He wrote directly to me. I took MMS for my skin cancer because I was sooo tired of the doctors constantly wanting to cut it out of me. MMS got rid of my cancer in 2 days! My son had melanoma on his ankle – the doctors would have cut his achiles tendon out for it. I emailed Jim Humble (mms creator), asking for help. He told me exactly what to do, and in 2 days my son's melanoma was completely gone – I have pictures to prove it. I used it as a topical ointment mind you, but I also took it internally. I never got sick from it, but it's true that it may give you a stomach ache if you take too much too soon. Dr. Humble recommends taking lower doses but more often. The problem is that the FDA and the drug companies can't make any money off of this because it's so cheap and inexpensive. MMS, if it widely used, would put the drug companies out of business... That's what's really happening here... Jim knew this was coming – he even predicted that he may lose his life because of MMS. At least thousands did get help when they could...

    I am sorry, you guys from the FDA. Why don't you stop? The MMS is absolutely a blessing and you shouldn't try to stop its use. Why would you you want to stop its use if it is in truth so beneficial? I have used MMS for some time now and, even though I had a little diarrhea at the beginning (only because pathongens were being killed and dumped their poison into the system), I felt so great right after the first day. I had incredible energy and everything in my body improved, including the digestion problems I had had for many years!
    Honestly, I just think even the FDA should start selling it.

      Read up, friend.

      That is because we live in a capitalist society and MONEY comes first not people.

      If someone CAN invented something that will help millions of people world-wide for a penny per dose then the capitalist government will do everything in their power to stop it.

    MMS is a true life saver. I've used it for 2 years. And of course you may get nausea if you don't follow the directions for use as it is powerful. It's called a Herkimer reaction because it can kill off parasites and bacteria so fast your body will feel worse for a short while until you eliminate all the dead parasites. And at less than $2 yes that is two dollars per month cost it will do more and do it better than $5000 per month cancer drugs. And a whole lot safer with less side effects. If the FDA messes with MMS they will be destroying the only way many people can afford to stay alive. Guess what will happen then. FDA is either being paid or pushed on hard by big Pharmaceutical companies to try to stop this when the worst thing that can happen with MMS is way less bad than some of the more common side effects of Pharmaceutical drugs. It's all about the big companies pushing on the FDA because they are afraid they are going to lose $$$$. This is GREED at it's worst and one that will result in many deaths of people if MMS is stopped from use. MMS cures Malaria in 24 hours or less in most cases. Over 50,000 documented cases on just this alone have been done in Africa. MMS will never get FDA approval because no Pharmaceutical company is going to spend the millions to get it approved when it's a simple chemical anyone can get and make use of as MMS for less than $20 for a years supply (and that's if you don't make your own which is even less).

    I use MMS for me and my family with 2 kids for more than 5 years now. We use it always instead of Pharmaceutical drugs. And I only can say it WORKS. What´s a little nausea instead of all the side effects of Pharmaceutical drugs. MMS works absoluty effectiv in a very short time. A famous American Doctor told me that he is using MMS too and he calls it the "H-bomb" against all deseases. . . . poor FDA!

    MMS is a harmless substance that has helped me and my family for years now. Yes, we have known all the side effects that are described in this FDA post. But those side effect are natrual symptoms of a physical body detoxing and getting rid of its toxins and wast products as a result of the MMS. Really, what the FDA is doing is outrageous! How about the FDA approval of Aspartame and related facts ? One year ago, everyone in the Netherlands was made to believe that the entire nation should be vaccinated against the H1N1 virus. Remember ? In june 2009 our minister of health ordered 34 million vaccinations at a cost of 360 million US dollars. The entire operation flunked, but still resulted in the fact that more than 1 million people received this vaccination at east once, amongst whom all children in the agegroup between 6 months and 4 years. The entire cost 1 billion dollars. Now, this is all FDA approved policy. This is all government health administration! And the side effects were similar, nausea, vomiting, etcetera. And NOT because phycical bodies were detoxing. People were deliberately made ill. God knows what was in those vaccinations! With MMS, reality would look like this. Take your maintenance dose each day and the H1N1 virus would not stand a chance in hell to make you sick. And at what cost ? At 15 dollars you've got enough to keep your entire family healthy.

      Not only is all you say interesting and very true, but did you know that MMS will also detox the H1N1 back out of you if you were in the group that took it? Antibiotics are a scurge to our bodies but MMS will get rid of them too. I cannot speak long or loud enough about the benefits of miracle mineral solution.

    I know first hand MMS has helped me on several occassions. Either you spend a little effort to do the research, or please dont add a mindless opinion, and stop slandering a genuine solution for a huge amount of diseases. Your misplaced skepticism is devastating in the effects it will have on you and your family, as you mindlessly consume lethal vaccines, drink fluoride rat poison tap water and chow down on GM food just because daddy government and mother television says so. Dont worry though, just keep watching TV and believing politicians and you will eventually die or slowly rot away from all the sickness and illness of mind and body. Its maths folks politicians and governments have killed 200 million in the last 100 years at a minimum, so to believe anything from their mouth is most definitely a serious mental illness, and you might as well ask a serial killer to stab you. These globalists behind the FDA and others see you as stupid animals that embrace their own slavery and death, so please realize that you can believe the positive comments about mms here and actually start listening to folks who actually care about you, or believe someone who wants to kill you its your choice and only you will suffer the consequences at the end of the day!
