The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said in a letter to its website that the bleach could not be used to treat the new coronavirus, according to a letter to websites selling “magic mineral solution” (MMS) chemicals,media BGR reported. The FDA notes that MMS is a variant of bleach (chlorine dioxide) that can be dangerous if ingested. The FDA and the Federal Trade Commission have issued stern warnings to several websites promoting the so-called COVID-19 treatment.
In the letter, the FDA lists the addresses of all websites that sell “magic mineral solutions” as COVID-19 treatments, urging the site’s owners to remove misleading information.
” (You) sell products designed to treat, alleviate, treat, or prevent COVID-19,” the letter reads. “We ask you to take immediate action to stop the sale of this unauthorized and unauthorized product for the treatment, remission, treatment or prevention of COVID-19. In addition, the FDA has previously warned consumers about the dangers of MMS and potentially life-threatening side effects. “
The regulator highlighted examples of misleading claims about these sites, which advertise MMS as a potential COVID-19 treatment:
“Fourteen people have been diagnosed with COVID-19 cases, taken MMS and have recovered. All of these people tested positive and their health was restored by the time they retested after taking MMS. The test result for COVID-19 was negative. “
“People who have used chlorine dioxide (MMS) over the years certainly expect it to also work on the virus, but we want to make sure that we have this data now, and we believe that the appropriate chlorine dioxide (MMS) mixture has every hope of eradicating COVID-19.” “
“If you have COVID-19, start with taking Protocol 6. This is a 6-drop MMS dose, followed by a 6-drop MMS dose after an hour. – After two 6-drop MMS doses, take 3 drops of active drops per hour and drop 3 drops per hour in 4 ounces of water. – For children, halve the dose as described above. “
These are just some of these examples, all of which are equally frightening. Some of these pages also include instructions on how to take MMS and how to give medication to young children.
