A mom turned to a controversial ‘treatment’ for her daughter’s autism — feeding her bleach

Police arrested the 28-year-old mother on Saturday after she allegedly put drops of hydrochloric acid and water-purifying solution in her young daughter’s drinks. The potentially dangerous chemical combination, which becomes an industrial bleach, is marketed as Miracle Mineral Solution or Master Mineral Solution, which its advocates claim will cure a number of diseases, including autism, cancer, AIDS and hepatitis.

The Food and Drug Administration issued a warning in 2010 advising people using MMS to stop immediately and throw it away, citing side effects ranging from uncomfortable to life-threatening, according to the warning. But the MMS website calls it an “amazingly powerful compound” that has “stood the test of time because it works — & works well!” According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there is no medication that cures autism, a developmental disability that can cause noticeable social and behavioral challenges. There are medications, however, that can help manage the behaviors connected to autism, such as high energy levels, depression and seizures. Some supporters of autism’s neurodiversity movement are against curing the disability, believing it to be a natural human variation central to autistic people's identities.

... a Washington man was sentenced to more than four years in prison for selling the miracle cure through an Internet business called “Project GreenLife.” His instructions for the product explained that nausea, diarrhea and vomiting were all signs that the miracle solution was working, according to the Department of Justice.

*shakes head* Shakespeare's Ariel (I think-- or maybe it was Puck) said it best:"Lord, what fools these mortals be!"

They canceled Mythbusters because they ran out of myths to bust, after a 10 year run. Think we should bring Jamie and Adam back to test these myths promoted by quacks? There is, in fact, a quite interesting website--with even more interesting links--called QuackWatch (www.quackwatch.com). Check it out when you have a few hours to spare. It's altogether amazing what people will do/believe in order to make their child "perfect".

The Amish leave the decision to vaccinate or not to parents, and as a result they get polio--largely controlled in the rest of the U.S.--and other preventable diseases at higher than average rates.
