Thumbs down PSA: Stop drinking bleach you idiots.

Apparently people are still doing this.

Quote:
The US Food and Drug Administration this week released an important health warning that everyone should heed: drinking bleach is dangerous—potentially life-threatening—and you should not do it.

The warning may seem unnecessary, but guzzling bleach is an unfortunately persistent problem. Unscrupulous sellers have sold “miracle” bleach elixirs for decades, claiming that they can cure everything from cancer to HIV/AIDS, hepatitis, flu, hair loss, and more. Some have promoted it to parents as a way to cure autism in children—prompting many allegations of child abuse.

Of course, the health claims are false, not to mention abhorrent. When users prepare the solution as instructed, it turns into the potent bleaching agent chlorine dioxide, which is an industrial cleaner. It’s toxic to drink and can cause severe diarrhea, vomiting, life-threatening low blood pressure, acute liver failure, and damage to the digestive tract and kidneys.

In this week’s warning, the FDA noted that some sellers will warn consumers that vomiting and diarrhea are common but say that those unpleasant effects indicate the solution is “working.”

“That claim is false,” the FDA wrote succinctly.

...

The FDA says that the products have been hard to scrub out because of claims on social media, where the drinks are promoted along with false health information. Most of the claims can be traced back to Jim Humble, founder and “archbishop” of the Genesis II Church of Health and Healing, aka “The Church of Bleach.”

Humble has been touting the solution for nearly two decades, referring to it as MMS—Miracle or Master Mineral Solution. (It’s also known as the Miracle Mineral Supplement, the Chlorine Dioxide (CD) Protocol, and Water Purification Solution (WPS).) Humble is a former Scientologist who reportedly claims to be a billion-year-old god from the Andromeda galaxy.

He promotes the bleaching agent as an official religious sacrament that “has the potential to overcome most diseases known to mankind.” Church member Kerri Rivera (reportedly a bishop in the church) explicitly touted MMS enemas to parents as a cure for autism. Rivera claims that the solution kills pathogens in the intestines that cause autism (autism has no known “cure” and is not caused by pathogens in the gut).

The Church disputes that MMS is bleach, noting that it is not the same as the liquid bleach one might buy in a grocery store, which is sodium hypochlorite. But "bleach" is actually a generic term used to describe many stain-fighting chemical products, which often are chlorine based and work by strong oxidation reactions.

It will cure what ails you, in that you'll die from drinking bleach before anything else has the chance to kill you




A couple drops a quart of water can actually disinfect it in emergency situations, but apparently bleach degrades so old bleach won't be good for even this. And you still would let it sit for a while before drinking.

I'm told that drinking bleach virtually guarantees that you won't die from AIDS.

It boggles my mind that this even needs to be said. Then again, people thought Tide Pods were yummy. So whatever. Clean out the gene pool, IMO.

So exactly why isn't this guy being charged with Reckless Endangerment at least? Because he's set up as a church? Don't think that gives you immunity to prosecution for things like this...


https://definitions.uslegal.com/r/re...-endangerment/

Quote:
Reckless endangerment is a crime consisting of acts that create a substantial risk of serious physical injury to another person. The accused person isn't required to intend the resulting or potential harm, but must have acted in a way that showed a disregard for the foreseeable consequences of the actions. The charge may occur in various contexts, such as, among others, domestic cases, car accidents, construction site accidents, testing sites, domestic/child abuse situations, and hospital abuse. State laws and penalties vary, so local laws should be consulted.

People who know they have to take a piss test for drugs believe if you drink bleach it will clean all that out of your system and pass. Doesn't work.
They still try it.

Just need one of the followers to give him one of their bleach solutions to drink (and not his own cuz hes likely just got water and food coloring or something) and show us the miracle of its cleansing powers!

If he refuses to drink it then well that tells you everything.
