A bleach-based product that has been dubbed a “miracle cure” for the coronavirus is still being sold on Amazon despite confirmation of its risks.
Chlorine dioxide wrongfully promoted as the magic treatment for the viral illness was widely reported by unsatisfied consumers who nearly lost their lives.
Basically, a mix of sodium chloride and acid, the commonly known Miracle Mineral Supplement exists under various product names such as CD Kit and NatriChlor.
The preparation is touted to be a water treatment curing HIV, hepatitis, and cancer but no positive results were actually recorded.
The toxic solution can cause nausea, vomiting, kidney failure, and even death, doctors warn.
“My mom who is 77 got Corona, COVID, and had a whole body-ache stomach upset, very extreme headache, fatigue,” a user said.
“Well, she started taking MMS and NOT KIDDING you, she was practically half better the NEXT day, and the day after she was totally good!!”
The Food and Drug Administration issued a warning last year over poisoning cases from chlorine dioxide.
“The FDA’s drug approval process ensures that patients receive safe and effective drug products. Miracle Mineral Solution and similar products are not FDA-approved, and ingesting these products is the same as drinking bleach.”
“Consumers should not use these products, and parents should not give these products to their children for any reason.”
