Bleach Ingestion Advocates Are Thrilled by Trump's 'Disinfectant' Comments - 2020-04-28
"Our time has come!" Kerri Rivera exulted recently, in one of several Telegram groups she uses to promote her brand of health advice to desperate parents. The product she's promoted for years was finally being given its due.
"Why has it been vilified by the media?" Rivera wrote in the Telegram group. "What is that they don't want us to know? Would it destroy Big Pharma's profits since it's an abundant mineral?"
Rivera is one of the best-known promoters of chlorine dioxide, also known as Miracle Mineral Supplement, or Miracle Mineral Solution, a potent, extremely dangerous form of bleach that she and others have promoted drinking since 2010 as a "cure" for autism and other serious conditions. MMS was first marketed by a Florida-based outfit called the Genesis II Church and its founder Jim Humble, who claims he discovered MMS in 1996 on a "gold mining expedition" to South America. (Humble, incidentally, is an ex-Scientologist who also claims to be a billion-year-old god from the Andromeda galaxy.)
