Miracle Mineral Solution cannot cure diseases; Do not drink it

Published on:

Quick Take

A Facebook post claims that a Miracle Mineral Solution can cure various diseases such as autism, parasites and depression. We investigated and found that the post claiming that Miracle Mineral Solution can cure diseases is fake.

The Claim

A post doing rounds on social media shows a photo of a bleaching solution. The post reads: “Drinking my miracle mineral solution. It has cured my autism, parasites and depression. You should too.” A Wikipedia link of the miracle mineral solution is also mentioned in the post.

Fact Check

We clicked on the Wikipedia link of Magical Mineral Solution mentioned in the post. The text on the page of Magical Mineral Solution refers it as an industrial bleach. It reads: “Miracle Mineral Supplement, often referred to as Miracle Mineral Solution, Master Mineral Solution, MMS or the CD protocol, is chlorine dioxide, an industrial bleach. It is made by mixing sodium chlorite solution with an acid (such as the juices of citrus fruits).”

The Wikipedia page also states that MMS is falsely promoted as a cure for various diseases. It reads: “MMS is falsely promoted as a cure for HIV, malaria, hepatitis viruses, the H1N1 flu virus, common colds, autism, acne, cancer, and much more.”

Upon further investigation, we found an article headlined ‘Danger: Don’t Drink Miracle Mineral Solution or Similar Products’ on the website of U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The article states that FDA warns people not to drink Miracle Mineral Solution as it can be harmful for health. The article reads: “The FDA warns you not to drink sodium chlorite products such as Miracle Mineral Solution. These products can make you sick.”

The article also read: “If you’re drinking “Miracle” or “Master” Mineral Solution or other sodium chlorite products, stop now. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has received many reports that these products, sold online as “treatments,” have made consumers sick.

We also found that the topic was covered across multiple mainstream media websites including Vice (Source) and US Today (Source) where the claim was debunked.
