Shock! The 'Miracle' Cure for AIDS, Cancer You Purchased Online is Killing You
So, you've been diagnosed with Hepatitis, cancer, Crohns disease, AIDS, herpes or TB and have looked for a cure on the Internet. Chances are you came upon something called Miracle Mineral Solution, which promises to cure every serious ailment and disease known to man, including the flu.
The UK Food Standards Agency has just issued an urgent warning against the product because well, it could kill you. Miracle Mineral Solution is 28 percent sodium chlorite solution which is equivalent to industrial-strength bleach and six times the amount found in an average bottle of household bleach.
The FSA said, if the solution -- which is sold for $21.98 and must be mixed with citric acid -- is diluted less than instructed, it could cause damage to the gut and red blood cells, potentially resulting in respiratory failure and death.
The pioneer of the supposed miracle drink is a man known as Jim Humble, pictured above administering something to African kids suffering from malaria. Hundreds of thousands of the solution have been sold since it went on the market.
