MMS and the Fake Clinical Trials – #1 – Introduction to MMS

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. When mixed with a weak acid, it generates chlorine dioxide – an industrial bleach and water purifier. Ingesting relatively small quantities of this toxic compounds can cause nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea. In larger doses, it can cause renal failure, hemolysis (a rupturing of the red blood cells), and even death. Yet, despite these well documented side effects, in some parts of the internet, MMS is being marketing as a panacea and targeting towards vulnerable people. To convince those who might be tempted to try it a pseudo-clinical trial took place in Uganda that apparently showed 154 people been cured of malaria using MMS. In this series of videos and am going documents my interactions with those involved and explain how they managed to make it look as if they cured 154 people.
