MMS – Industrial Bleach Marketed as an Autism Cure

What was once known as Miracle Mineral Supplement, but for legal reasons had to change its name to Miracle Mineral Solution (MMS), is a 28% sodium chlorite solution in distilled water currently being sold online as a cure-all tonic. Unlike other panaceas that also don’t work that are currently being sold online, MMS has the ability to do real harm. This is because when it is mixed with an acidic solution, as instructed, it generates chlorine dioxide.

Just over a year ago I published a video and a podcast critical of the people who promote this dangerous woo whilst at the same time warning those who may be looking into using it. Both did moderately well but what really surprised me was the amount of people who contacted me after watching the video telling me that chlorine dioxide was in fact not a bleach.

To show MMS’ bleaching properties I decided to buy it online (which rather unsettlingly is very easy to do) and then see what it would do to part of a black sock.
