I’ve got a new hero. 15 year old Rhys Morgan suffers from Crohn’s Disease, and joined a forum, hoping for some support and information. Instead, he came across Miracle Mineral Solutions, a “cure” for, amongst other things malaria and AIDS. It’s also banned by the FDA (US Food and Drugs Administration) as it is “industrial bleach”.
Rhys, reasonably enough, questioned those that seemed to be pushing MMS, and for his trouble was eventually banned from the forum and had his posts deleted. Thanks to the wonders of the internet the story has been picked up by The Guardian (linky), and given some more publicity. His original blog post is here.
