Man accused of trying to kill girlfriend with Miracle Mineral Solution

This story recognizes this MMS stuff for what it is, a poison.

San Rafael poisoning investigation ends with no charges against boyfriend – Marin Independent Journal.

A 68-year-old man accused of trying to poison his girlfriend at a San Rafael nursing home will not face criminal charges, a county prosecutor said.

Robert Lewis Lochridge was arrested on attempted murder allegations in September after an investigation by the San Rafael Police Department. Police suspected he tried to kill the 63-year-old woman by bringing chlorine-laced bottled water to the care facility where she was a patient.

Lochridge, a San Jose resident, told investigators that he bought the liquid online as a health supplement. The formula — which is sold under names such as Miracle Mineral Solution, Miracle Mineral Supplement or MMS — is marketed by its advocates as a treatment for arthritis, cancer, cirrhosis and other serious conditions.

This is bleach. That’s right. Bleach is being marketed as a miracle cure. It’s STILL available to buy as this man did. I get the impression he had every good intention, as many do, when trying to help others with alternative treatments. The wikipedia article is informative.

You can visit the site of Jim Humble who promotes this bullshit. Web of Trust gives it a completely RED rating for poor. But the bottom line is, it doesn’t work and it’s dangerous. Here is more.

It’s promotion as an HIV cure.

The FDA warns of serious harm:

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is warning consumers not to take Miracle Mineral Solution, an oral liquid 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.

    I feel like I’ve heard ads for this on the GCN radio network, home of The Paracast but mostly of right wing radio. The symbiosis between the populist right, alternative medicine, conspiracy theory, survivalism, the obsession with precious metals and purity, and paranormal beliefs is difficult to really grok until you start to become exposed to it. Just take a listen to any episode of the last few years of The Paracast since they moved to GCN (the commercials are in their audio files from the site). Some of the shows are actually decent (their MJ-12 takedown was good), most are what you expect, and some have dreadful guests. But the commercials are just amazingly awful.

    Ah, looking at the site looks like I’ll have to listen to the most recent one as it involves the Shaver Mysteries. Looks like I’ll be hearing pitches for holsters, water filters, gold, emergency seeds, storable food, and special teas soon enough

    Why is this stuff legal? Let’s try again to get rid of DSHEA.

    It’s completely appalling how difficult it is to get stuff like this pulled from the web. I just hope that somebody, somewhere is prioritising dangerous sites like this over the likes of copyright claims.
