MMS - Chlorine Dioxide "Miracle Cure"

#1  Postby Alan B » May 18, 2019 12:30 pm

There have been a few threads in the past about this stuff...
Guardian (No dateline)
But this appears to be a recent attempt by con-artists disguising themselves as religious nutters.
US pastor runs network giving 50,000 Ugandans bleach-based 'miracle cure''

An American pastor from New Jersey backed by a British former clairvoyant is running a network that gives up to 50,000 Ugandans a “miracle cure” made from industrial bleach, claiming drinking the toxic fluid eradicates cancer, HIV/Aids, malaria and most other diseases.
The network, led by pastor Robert Baldwin and part-funded by Sam Little from Arlesey in Bedfordshire, is one of the most extensive efforts yet to distribute the “miracle cure” known as MMS, or “miracle mineral solution”. The Guardian has learned that poor Ugandans, including infants as young as 14 months old, are being given chlorine dioxide, a product that has no known health benefit and can be extremely dangerous.

Baldwin, 52, is importing bulk shipments of the components of MMS, sodium chlorite and citric acid, into Uganda from China. The two chemicals are mixed to produce chlorine dioxide, a powerful bleach used in the textile industry.

The American pastor has “trained” about 1,200 clerics in Uganda on administering the “miracle cure” and each in turn uses it to treat about 50 congregants, usually after Sunday service. As an inducement, Baldwin is offering smartphones to those clerics who are especially “committed” to spreading the bleach cure.

Baldwin operates under a ministry he founded called Global Healing. The “church” advertises itself as “using the power of Almighty God … to greatly reduce the loss of life” in Africa.
I see. So if you 'set up' a "Church" it's OK...
Yet in a phone conversation with Fiona O’Leary, a campaigner against quack medicine who spoke to him while posing as a freelance journalist, Baldwin said he distributed the bleach through churches to “stay under the radar”.

Yeah. I wonder why?
There's more of this crap if you can bare reading it. The good news is that the Ugandan government has been alerted and is taking an interest.

I think these con-artists should have their finances forcibly extracted leaving them with nothing or else 'put 'em up against the wall'...
I have NO BELIEF in the existence of a God or gods. I do not have to offer evidence nor do I have to determine absence of evidence because I do not ASSERT that a God does or does not or gods do or do not exist.

Combinations of halogens with chalcogens, represented by empirical formulae that are puzzling to novice chemistry students, are well known among veteran chemists as being the source of ravenous flames, choking vesicant fumes and corrosive liquids. Or, in some cases, explosively powerful oxidising agents that you do NOT want within a mile of sensitive mucous membranes.

How much of a total fucktard do you have to be, to recommend dosing people with chemicals this dangerous?

Let me guess ... the same "pastors" and other fuckwits who are pushing this hideously lethal drivel, are also anti-vax loons and "Big Pharma" conspiracy theorists, railing against modern medicine that actually fucking works.

Can't we have a nice selective pandemic that just wipes out the idiots and the toxic right-wing greed merchants?

Alternatively, and a smidgen more realistically, make them swallow their own "medicine" first to demonstrate their efficacy, or at least their harmlessness.

Watching them die as a result of taking their own "medicine" would be more satisfying. You might have to use irresistible methods, but luckily Swedish soldiers and mercenaries perfected the technique for doing so during the Thirty Years War.

There's a group of parents who give their autistic children bleach enemas to "cure" them. Human stupidity knows no bounds.

Malevolence, more like.
