Alert issued on danger of "Miracle Mineral Supplement"
« on: September 24, 2010, 10:47:25 AM »
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-11404218

Food watchdogs have issued an alert after finding that a chemical marketed online as a health supplement was similar to industrial-strength bleach.

'Miracle Mineral Supplement' is 28% sodium chlorite - which becomes bleach when mixed with citric acid.

Even taken as instructed, experts say it can cause severe vomiting and diarrhoea - and mixing it wrongly could lead to respiratory failure.

...

In the US, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has reported cases of severe nausea and vomiting among people taking the supplement, even though they had mixed it according to the instructions provided.

A harmful "miracle" supplement? Clutch the pearls and say it isn't so!

HIV is certainly character-building. It's made me see all of the shallow things we cling to, like ego and vanity. Of course, I'd rather have a few more T-cells and a little less character. Randy Shilts

Sounds like a perfect supplement for toilet bowl cleaning and perhaps even get rid of underwear stains at the point of origin .

Yes! They could market it as "Skidrid".

It will also probably reduce unwanted butt hair.

Miracle Mineral Supplement didn't work for me

I actually tried using it daily in the fall of 2009.  I got the highest viral load and lowest t-cell count when on this experimental regimen.  I was not on hiv meds at the time.  The man who promotes it got raided by the F.D.A., which generally means something works (!), but when I read his emails as I am on his list, he seems like a con artist.
