“Church” claims bleach is coronavirus-curing “sacrament,” faces wrath of FDA | Ars Technica

The Genesis II Church of Health and Healing (hereinafter referred to as the Genesis II Church) states, 'We are formed with the aim of' regaining health 'for the world, and not with the purpose of worship but to serve humanity. It's a non-religious church. ' The founder is Jim Humble, a former believer in the emerging religious group Scientology , who claims to be ' a billion-year-old god from the Andromeda galaxy to the earth, ' and is the Archbishop of the Genesis II Church.

In addition, the Genesis II Church has been

offering a liquid called Miracle Mineral Solution (MMS) for about 20 years at 4 ounces (about 120 ml) from $ 11 (about 1200 yen) to $ 15 (about 1650 yen). It was sold at the price. Genesis II Church posted on its website that 'MMS helps cure, alleviate, and prevent new coronavirus infections.' 'MMS is another intractable disease such as Alzheimer's disease, autism, brain cancer, AIDS, multiple sclerosis, etc. There is also a testimony that it will also be cured. ' The Genesis II Church has revealed that the content of MMS is 28% aqueous sodium chlorite solution, 'the pathogen in the body is killed by adding acid such as lemon or lime juice to MMS and drinking' I was waiting.

Sodium chlorite is a substance used as a bleaching agent and an oxidizing agent for commercial use, and although it is also used as a food additive and disinfectant in a very small amount, it is harmful to the human body when ingested in a large amount. Mixing citric acid with an aqueous sodium chlorite solution produces chlorine dioxide, which is used for bleaching pulp and sterilizing pools. Chlorine dioxide is sometimes used in products that claim to eradicate new coronaviruses, but its effectiveness has been questioned and its toxicity to living organisms has been pointed out.

The FDA has previously expressed concern about MMS, saying in August 2019, 'MMS has dangerous and life-threatening side effects. Taking MMS can cause severe vomiting, diarrhea, dehydration, and death. low blood pressure levels, is a case to sue the acute liver failure and have been multiple reports ' warning had been.

Meanwhile, the Genesis II Church said in a final warning from the FDA on April 8, 2020, 'Our holy MMS is not dangerous in any way,' said the FDA and the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Like many of the approved products, it's not life-threatening. 'I disagree with the fact that MMS is a bleach. It is based on sodium hypochlorite , which can be purchased at grocery stores. It's not the same as the bleach. '

However, it seems that the FDA has filed a lawsuit because the COVID-19 pandemic has been ridden by the Genesis II Church. The FDA said in a statement, 'In the midst of the pandemic of the new coronavirus and the national emergency regime, the defendant,' a non-religious entity based in Florida, 'was consumed as a remedy for COVID-19. We sell strong commercial bleach to people and abuse the crisis. '

After a federal court order to suspend sales, I can no longer purchase MMS from the Genesis II Church website. The Genesis II Church argued that 'MMS are not sold, but are distributed in exchange for donations.' 'Now that the FDA's lawsuit is correct because Japan is in an emergency declaration,' Don't tell me that there can be no emergency that nullifies the orders of God, especially regarding freedom of religious activity!
