I’m going to begin this lengthy post with gratitude to Jonathan Campbell for writing his article, What is Miracle Mineral Supplement (MMS), and Why is it Dangerous? Mr. Campbell is a health consultant, whose motto is helping people take charge of their health. You may have guessed that he and I presently are not in agreement as to the dangers that are posed by MMS, but he presents his thoughts with such conviction, it’s quite possible that some people will take them on face value. That’s what millions of people do with their doctors these days while their health continues to decline. I have no problem listening to, or taking an expert’s advice, as long as I feel it represents the best available understanding on the subject.
Unfortunately, from the research that I’ve done, Mr. Campbell’s representation of MMS is full of holes. Since these variances from the truth are so glaring, it is almost perplexing to understand why such lengths would be taken, if his concerns were genuine. I’ll let you decide for yourself.
His statements are indented and italicized.
Miracle Mineral Supplement (MMS) is being touted on the Internet as a natural antibiotic and cure-all for a wide range of diseases and afflictions: colds and flu (including swine flu), malaria, cancer, “HIV & AIDS,” fungus, and, more recently, autism. But MMS is actually a synthetic industrial chemical – it is a concentrated (28%) chlorine bleach – sodium chlorite. When MMS is “activated,” it creates CLO2, chlorine dioxide, a very strong chemical oxidizer and bleaching agent. CLO2 is the active molecule in many water purification systems. It does kill germs, but it is toxic. If you ingest it in the concentrations recommended, it can cause you direct harm.
I talked about this paragraph on my radio show.
- I did a short video on the concentration, and by the time you ingest activated MMS, it is around 0.00166389% if drank in 3 oz of water. The dilution would be even higher if more water is used to wash it down.
- He claims MMS is “toxic,” but what does that mean? Heavy metals in the body are toxic, but go down after taking MMS. How can anything that will reduce toxicity levels be labeled toxic itself? He doesn’t warn people against heavy metals, which can cause direct harm.
- If you drink MMS directly from the bottle, it would be caustic, but even that wouldn’t be toxic. It should be handled with care and awareness, but not fear.
It’s not that chlorine dioxide is toxic, as in poisonous. The need for caution is in determining the best dosing method (via drinking, osmotic through the skin, sprayed on and rubbed in, vapors, etc.), and amount.
Jim Humble has worked out a framework by which to beneficially use chlorine dioxide inside the body. The specifics, of what works best for the individual, are best to be worked out by the individual, hopefully with the assistance and/or guidance of his health care professional. This includes the guidance of one’s own Inner Wisdom. This is something we’re not practiced at, and through fearful tactics, are too often dissuaded from using.
CLO2 is a toxic chemical oxidizer
CLO2 can cause direct oxidation harm to mucous membranes and epithelium (lining of the esophagus, stomach, and intestines).
This is not true if used as outlined. If it were true, then the buzz on MMS would be about how people had harmed their mucous membranes when they correctly followed the outlined protocol. It doesn’t happen because the protocol doesn’t result in such damage. People have taken MMS for such recurring conditions as migraines and discovered that their asthma went away.
It can cause nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, dehydration, and reduced blood pressure.
This is untrue. The operative instrument of falsehood is the word cause. Chlorine dioxide does not cause nausea, vomiting, etc. If it did, vomiting would occur under all circumstances… as happens in some FDA approved medications for cancer. In the case of MMS, nausea and other detoxification effects may happen through a purge effect. It’s not always pretty or comfortable. However, a purge is to be expected as a part of one’s healing process if they have become chronically toxic. The upside is that when the even is over, the individual may find that pain that had been constant has now disappeared, and they have regained precious energy that had been routinely siphoned off by the toxicity.
Once ingested, it is absorbed into the bloodstream and can cause harm to tissues, to red blood cells, and to the developing brain of infants, children, and the fetus in pregnant women.
This is pure fiction, not supported by experience. People have reported amazing improvements among autistic children and Alzheimer’s patients, because the chlorine dioxide cleared the heavy metals (such as mercury) that had accumulated in the brain. Many vaccines – which are mandatory in some cases, – are laced with mercury which is used as a preservative. It “preserves” the shelf life of the drug while killing human cells and tissue.
Because CLO2 is a chemical oxidizer (called a “free radical”) it depletes vitamin C.
This is a false and misleading statement. The writer presupposes that the person using MMS had an adequate store of vitamin C before ingestion, which was therefore depleted due to the introduction of chlorine dioxide. This is unrealistic for a number of reasons.
An individual that has a chronic or degenerative disease will, by definition, already have had an ongoing vitamin C deficiency. The idea that chlorine dioxide “depletes” vitamin C is a fantasy. If it does anything, it will oxidize the synthetic and bio-unavailable vitamin C imposters that most people are being sold, thinking that they are taking care of their health while remaining on the slippery slope of chronic disease.
What Mr. Campbell is saying is important, because vitamin C is important (as are many other vitamins and minerals that have been co-opted by commercial process). Tagging MMS as a depleter of vitamin C masks a larger issue. Here’s some great information on vitamin C from a company that produces plant-cell grown vitamin and mineral products.
Human bodies cannot manufacture vitamin C as most animals do. We are dependent upon getting it in our diet. Vitamin C plays a vast and significant role in our health. It enhances immunity, protects against the harmful effects of pollution, maintains collagen in the formation of connective tissue in skin, ligaments and bones, and it effects arterial walls, capillaries, and the healing of wounds. It is a powerful antioxidant, active in the formation of red blood cells and the production of interferon and anti-stress hormones, effecting the body’s ability to withstand stress, resist infections, and support the body’s natural defenses. It also reduces the effects of some allergy-producing substances, and plays a significant role in adrenal gland function and healthy gums. Vitamin C is also involved in the body’s absorption, assimilation, and metabolism of other vitamins and nutrients. Stress, alcohol, smoking, analgesics, oral contraceptives, antidepressants, and steroids may all deplete the body’s levels of vitamin C in a short time.
Almost without exception, all vitamins utilized in the manufacturing of supplements are made from what are called hydrocarbonaceous intermediates. So they can technically be called “natural,” since they can be said to be derived from “natural sources.” But their isolated state is not at all the same as their “natural form” as found in food.
According to the redefinitions of technology, what is natural as nature created it, may not qualify as “natural” as technology defines it. When research scientists discovered how to isolate d-alpha tocopherol (a form of vitamin E) from food in a lab, for example, the accepted generic term for that structure came to be known as “Natural Source Vitamin E”. D-alpha tocopherol, however, does not exist as an isolated molecule in food. Food contains multiple tocopherols in a highly complex molecular structure that assures that “dl,” rather than “d,” is present. Isolated pure molecules rotate light, and once molecules are isolated to reveal their exact structure, molecularly the form they take can no longer be considered food. Thus, D-alpha tocopherol is not food as nature defines it, and wholistically it is not vitamin E as nature creates it. Still, patents exist for synthesizing d-alpha tocopherol, which is then labeled “Natural Source Vitamin E,” and the impression given to those buying and consuming it, is that they are getting something nature created as it would be found in food.
THE BODY IS AN ECOSYSTEM
Our cells eat, drink, breathe, “go to the bathroom,” generate electricity, do their job, and replicate themselves, twenty four hours a day. Each and every one of them is totally dependent upon the integrity of the resources available to them to perform these functions efficiently. To the extent the quality of these resources is lacking, the quality of the cell’s performance is diminished. Quality goods cannot be created from inferior resources.
In other words, junk in, junk out.
When a body’s cells are formed from inferior resources, our bodies are handicapped by a diminished capacity for health that continues to diminish throughout each subsequent generation born and raised on deficient resources. Our bodies have only what we consume to supply the materials with which our cells are generated, maintained and restored. Deficient, processed, adulterated food provides a deficient quality of material considerably different from what nutrient-rich, non denatured foods produce. A cell membrane made from damaged or deficient raw materials lacks the integrity to fulfill its healthy function. The body is designed for vital health, and nature provides all the resources by which such health can be accomplished and enjoyed. Nature is our ally, and supplementation and food production which looks to nature’s wisdom as its mentor, is nature’s ally. Lifestar and nature are allies.
Until recently, and almost without exception, USP-grade material was the only vitamin material available in the world for formulating and tableting vitamin supplements. Unknown to most consumers, there are no brand name vitamin companies that actually manufacture their own vitamins. There are close to 3,000 brand name vitamin supplements in the marketplace in the United States whose nutrient contents are all purchased through distributors from the same seven sources in the United States or from their seven foreign counterparts. (Source: www.LifeStar.com)
Even if a person were taking vitamin C supplements, there is a strong likelihood that the product is delivering only a fraction of the nutritional value it purports to supply.
In addition, people who have compromised health or are in chronic pain are very likely to be under stress. They may also drink, or have habitually drank alcohol, smoke, taken analgesics, antidepressants, steroids, and many other chemicals, which would deplete vitamin C, if the vitamin C they were taking was actually real.
Add to this the crippling effects of processing that vitamin supplement products go through, and you see that the problem of vitamin C availability precedes MMS.
You would think that Mr. Campbell would be aware of such nuances and able to guide his audience accordingly. The people who run the FDA haven’t seen it, so why should he? But you should. You should know for yourself.
Putting it another way, the vitamin C in our body gets depleted in its attempts to detoxify CLO2; vitamin C is our “free radical scavenger.”
The first part of that statement is false. The second part is true only if we add the word, real before vitamin C.
The instructions provided with MMS specifically warn people not to take vitamin C while they are taking MMS because vitamin C “interferes” with it.
Not true. The advice is to spread your dosing between vitamin C and MMS in order to gain the full benefits of both. Chemical vitamin C will inactivate the generation of chlorine dioxide. Yet, when you want to mask the taste, you can use fruit juices that contain natural, bio-available vitamin C as a substitute for water.
This is a red flag that MMS is a toxic chemical, since vitamin C is our primary detoxification agent. Vitamin C depletion is extremely dangerous: it is the bulwark of our immune system, and it is needed for dozens of other body functions.
IF vitamin C was our “primary detoxification agent,” as Mr. Campbell asserts, then you’d think he’d note the myriad factors that work against having an adequate supply, which have nothing to do with chlorine dioxide. To hear him tell it, you have enough vitamin C already, and the evil MMS comes in and takes it away. The real and present danger is ignored while a promising alternative is demonized and defamed through a “grim” fairy tale.
“Activated” MMS contains elemental chlorine
Despite the claims of its “inventor” Jim Humble that MMS is elemental chlorine free, the fact of the matter is that when CLO2 is created in water, it immediately reacts with the water to create elemental chlorine and hypochlorous acid.
False. ClO2 is not elemental chlorine. Even the MMS-biased Wikipedia describes ECF, elemental chlorine free technique, as a wood pulp whitening process that does not involve elemental chlorine, meaning that it is safer than the chlorine-based process. According to the EPA, chlorite is one disinfection byproduct of chlorine dioxide. Salt (NaCl) and water (H2O) are others.
Commercial bleaching operations that use only CLO2 end up with elemental chlorine in the processing tanks and organic chlorine compounds in their wastewater. (Thornton, page 321-322) What does this mean to you?
What it means to me is that you either have your information mixed up, or you’re doing it intentionally. This goes against everything that any unbiased source has said about chlorine dioxide (when they weren’t talking about MMS). That includes the National Institutes of Health, EPA, and even the FDA. It’s not even about the dangers of ingestion of MMS. The FDA simply wants to be the one who approves what you and I ingest. They don’t know what’s best for you. If they did, why would they approve Corexit-laced seafood from the Gulf Coast? Is it more important to put people back to work than it is to provide toxin-free food?
If the FDA is protecting the public interest, why would they approve transgenic (genetically modified) food and fish products? Their priorities are different than the public’s. Their take on GMO foods involves whether to require labels so that the public can tell what they are buying.
The real problem with MMS is the effect; not the harm, but the benefit that disinfection can bring It represents an available solution – not THE solution, but an available and viable one – that has been in our midst for almost 100 years, that doesn’t cost billions of dollars to develop or produce, or hundreds of billions more to charge for.
When elemental chlorine comes in contact with human tissue, it immediately destroys the molecules it comes in contact with, harming tissue and organs. In doing so it also combines with the natural biological chemicals (aromatic hydrocarbons) in your cells, forming chemicals that could never exist in nature, called polychlorinated aromatic hydrocarbons.
This is the description of the chemical behavior of chlorine (Cl2), which chlorine dioxide (ClO2) is not. The writer should be up in arms over chlorination, the huge municipal water treatment elephant in the room that he seems oblivious to. But to read this, you’d think that chlorine didn’t exist. What he and the FDA have been banking on, is a belief that the public won’t know, or figure out, the difference.
These new chemicals are almost always carcinogenic (cause cancer) because they mimic chemicals that look like them but do not include chlorine. So when you ingest MMS, you create cancer-causing chemicals from your own body fluids and tissue. These bio-accumulate in fat tissue, eventually causing cancer.
This is total fiction. Is it hard to conceptualize that most people who are suffering from degenerative diseases have already been saturated with the effects of chlorination, processed foods, airborne pathogens, mal-illumination and electrosmog for many years?
Chlorination byproducts are understood, by the Environmental Protection Agency, for example, to be different from the byproducts of chlorine dioxide. Yet, Mr. Campbell writes as though they are one in the same.
However, he’s not writing about how chlorination is dangerous, which it is, and would be true. He’s not writing about the consequences to health, such as various forms of cancers, that are happening among people who have been, and are exposed to chlorination year in and year out. He’s writing about what can happen with chlorine dioxide, and then justifying his argument by describing the behavior and effects of chlorination.
What are the effects of chlorination? THM’s – trihalomethanes, one of which is chloroform. The EPA includes them among what it terms “disinfection byproducts” for chlorine. The only disinfection byproduct of chlorine dioxide is chlorite. The EPA doesn’t explain anything about the chlorite ion, but additional research confirms that it is a triggering mechanism for the electron exchange by any pathogenic bacteria that is host to the respiratory nitrate reductase enzyme. Salmonella and E. Coli are two such bacteria. Aerobic microorganisms are unaffected by either chlorine dioxide or its chlorite byproduct, as they do not host the respiratory nitrate reductase enzyme.
The danger is in what’s already in the water that hundreds of millions of people are consuming right now based on currently prevalent water treatment methods. If you followed Mr. Campbell’s assertions to his suggested conclusion – meaning that MMS was no longer used – it would infer that the problems he warns against would never happen.
But the problems are already, and have been happening well before MMS came along. Then he describes the chemical effects of chlorination and attributes them to MMS and chlorine dioxide. By virtue of its oxidative method, it appears that chlorine dioxide actually reduces toxicity (heavy metals, etc.) whereas chlorination increases toxicity.
MMS attacks healthy tissue
CLO2 is actually even more dangerous than elemental chlorine for healthy tissue. According to the data on CLO2 cited to support its use for disinfection, it destroys amino acids and sulfurous bonds, both of which are integral to healthy human tissue. CLO2 cannot differentiate healthy tissue from diseased tissue. It is a universal biocide, not for human internal consumption.
If Mr. Campbell’s statement were true, then this would be corroborated (1) in the science associated with chlorine dioxide, and (2) in the outcomes that MMS users have reported.
There has been no such corroboration because this is not what people are reporting.
As mentioned earlier, a link has been established to the chlorite ion and an enzyme that triggers the electron release which destroys the pathogen. In that sense, chlorine dioxide doesn’t differentiate. The enzyme determines whether conditions have been met that fulfill the purpose for the anaerobic microorganism’s presence in the first place – a lack of sufficient oxygen. When that oxygen arrives, the enzyme – respiratory nitrate reductase – shoots off an electron which destroys the anaerobe. In a cascade fashion, up to 5 electrons may be given up.
MMS invokes the poison reflex
Many people report that when they take MMS they get nauseous or vomit. This is the autonomic poison response of the human body. Jim Humble’s literature says that this is an indication that MMS is “working” and not to worry about it. He attributes it to a detoxification (Herxheimer) reaction. This is not the case. The nausea and vomiting that people experience is caused by the recognition by the body that MMS is poisonous.
Writing a lie in boldface only makes it a boldface lie. While it is possible to experience one, MMS does not inherently cause vomiting or Herxheimer response. It depends on the degree to which the individual is toxic. In other words, how much has the individual already been poisoned?
I experienced the Herxheimer response on my fourth day of using MMS, and on just 4 drops. Vomiting, diarrhea, the works. Something was inactivated, and the body got rid of it as soon as possible. I have taken larger doses since that time, and have not even experienced nausea, much less other, more dramatic examples of purging.
It is juvenile to call one’s self a “health consultant” and not recognize or acknowledge that a person who is chronically ill is already toxic, and likely has been so for some time, before ever coming across MMS. The more acute the illness, the higher the toxicity, and lower the available oxygen in the system. But then, most traditionally trained medical doctors are just that juvenile, as they don’t acknowledge the toxicity that they add to their patient’s environment by reciting scriptures from their “Pharmacology Bible,” a book that has been good for the for profit medical industry, but not for the health – of patients.
Toxicity levels increase inside the human body in direct relation to the decrease in available oxygen, which gets bound up by synthetic materials, much like the hydrocarbons and the petrochemical Corexit bound up the oxygen in the Gulf of Mexico, killing masses of oxygen breathing aquatic life.
MMS can’t bring back life that has been killed off inside the body, but it is delivering oxygen, which immediately affects the affected area’s ability to safely support new aerobic microorganisms, which includes healthy cells, once again.
Water that is oxygen deficient, which tends to be on the acidic side, will not support cell health, nor will water that is too alkaline.
MMS is the wrong approach to immunity – it is chemotherapy!
The entire approach of Jim Humble is to treat the human body as if it were a simple plumbing system, and MMS is akin to Drain-O, chemically killing pathogens. But the human body does not work that way. Your body does not need chemicals from a factory to kill pathogens.
Mr. Campbell’s last statement is true. The body does not need chemicals from a factory in order to kill pathogens. It doesn’t need the chlorine or fluoride that is put in municipal drinking water. It doesn’t need chromium 6 and other contaminates that are now found in water. It certainly doesn’t need the many additives and synthetic hormones, from aspartame to rBST, to transgenic products developed in laboratories, in order to maintain our health. But none of these have anything to do with MMS being dangerous. MMS doesn’t portend the dangers that this long list of FDA approved bioactive agents do.
MMS is used to generate chlorine dioxide, and there is no such thing as “synthetic” oxygen. When chlorine dioxide is introduced to the system, pathogens are oxidized, turning them into debris. It breaks down into salt (NaCl) and water (H2O). All of the other items that I mentioned above produce new chemical derivatives. Chlorine dioxide reduces the chemical load in the body. The art and science of using MMS to greatest effect is in determining the best dosing method, striking a balance to achieve a manageable rate of toxin reduction. The body has remarkable ability to repair itself when this chemical drag has been lifted.
When fortified properly, your body has the capability to fight literally any pathogen or illness.
Yes, another true statement.
A healthy immune system automatically and selectively targets pathogens with an array of antibodies and white blood cells. MMS disrupts this natural immunity by depleting antioxidants.
The first sentence is true, the second is not. The results do not support Mr. Campbell’s claim. The results suggest that the opposite is true.
I am not suggesting that MMS is the answer to every situation. I’m saying that it is not the scourge that is being portrayed here. It is a legitimate tool that produces the valuable service of chemical disinfection. I suggest that chemical toxicity is the reason for microbial imbalance, particularly the upsurge in anaerobic factors.
Modern medical practices actually further infect the body when bio-antagonistic chemicals are used. They don’t give you Salmonella directly. They simply introduce agents that deplete oxygen and block other natural metabolic functions, thereby requiring the body to bring in organisms that do not require oxygen in order to keep us alive. However, while we may still live, the vital ecological and microbial balance within the body is upset, and cannot be restored until environmental balance is restored. This is why degenerative and chronic diseases evolve. This is why cancers return. They are helped along by the medication, both medical and commercial, in the form of processed, nutrient-deficient foods.
MMS is Toxic – Do Not Use It
Even if you didn’t understand all of the explanations above, please take my word for it – Miracle Mineral Supplement is very toxic to your body. It may seem to get rid of bacteria – chlorine bleach does do that – but at great expense to your long-term health: tissue and organ damage, compromised immunity, and possibly cancer.
Mr. Campbell’s explanations were purposefully made to be misunderstood, just like the FDA’s. Anyone willing to do a modicum of fact checking can see his misstatements on chlorine versus chlorine dioxide. He’s not alone; the FDA did it too.
If you look for scientific descriptions of chemical behavior produced by agencies that have no agenda, you’ll see that chlorine dioxide is clearly different than, and superior to chlorine as a disinfectant. Yet, chlorine is by far the predominant water disinfectant modality, which affects 100’s of millions of people every day, and contributes to the growth in our population of “functional dysfuncts” – people who are too sick to enjoy life, but not sick enough to stop what they’re doing. They become today’s Zombies.
There is nothing natural about MMS, it is not a supplement, and the only mineral in it is sodium. It is a synthetic industrial chemical. And the only thing miraculous about MMS is that it hasn’t been taken off the market.
Salt is sodium chloride (NaCl). If you took pure sodium and put it in water, it would ignite and burn. Combined with a chlorine ion, it is a staple for life. Yet, according to Mr. Campbell, sodium is the only mineral in MMS. Chlorine is a member of the periodic table, but in Mr. Campbell’s view, it doesn’t qualify as natural. Neither does the oxygen that is bound with the chlorine ion to make chlorine dioxide. According to Mr. Campbell, these are “synthetic.” This is also consistent with FDA thinking, because they believe that the only “cures” are drugs.
Not true on either count.
The writer only shows that he hasn’t had any direct experience with MMS (as have others who have slammed it), and in the absence of actual knowledge, he’s intellectualizing with faulty information.
Chlorine dioxide is used in many industries to reduce or eleminate Salmonella and E. Coli. It is approved by the FDA to be sprayed on meat and poultry before final packing for the same purpose. It doesn’t have to be rinsed off. Why do you think that is so? Because it safely disinfects while leaving NO toxic residue.
Chlorine dioxide is used to disinfect mold in homes. Mold is a living organism that thrives when oxygen levels are down. Humans can live when oxygen levels are down too, but not be healthy. When mold grows in our homes, it is not unreasonable to see how mold can grow inside our physical body too. If chlorine dioxide can safely and effectively inactivate mold in the volume of a home, then it will do the same, in appropriately scaled down amounts, within the human ecosphere. This is not rocket science. It’s simple logic that needs further study and benign examination, not fear.
In October 2009, and man named Doug Nash reported on the curezone website that MMS had killed his wife, Silvie Fink. Her death certificate states that the cause of death was MMS. Jim Humble issued a cruel, blithering response, attacking this man who was grieving the death of his wife, for filing the report. Humble went even further: he included an outright falsehood: “MMS is a natural chemical manufactured by the human immune system to help prevent diseases and to keep the body healthy.” The truth is this: your body cannot create sodium chlorite or chlorine dioxide. MMS can only be created in a chemical factory.
Jim Humble’s response was to Doug Nash’s assertions that Silvie’s death was due to MMS. Some people took umbrage with that, but he was right. Even with an unprecedented amount of influence on Mr. Nash’s part in pointing the finger at MMS, which included contacting the FDA and filing a complaint, going to sites and forums pleading his case as a victim, the scientific facts could not, and did not support his claim. The prosecutor finally closed the case in November 2010, noting that the toxicological facts did not support the claim. Unfortunately, the true cause was left in question, but I will speculate that it has something to do with chemical toxicity that she was exposed to before MMS had time to inactivate it.
In the meantime, two articles were published in the Sydney Morning Herald (January 2010) demonizing MMS, followed by the FDA warning. They both cited the Sylvìa Fink case, not waiting for validation, which people who understood how MMS works knew would not be forthcoming.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a press release on July 30, 2010, warning people not to consume MMS.
Please, please do not use this substance. If you have any, don’t use it, but save it for evidence. If it has harmed you, please obtain the services of a lawyer to sue the distributor who sold it to you and the manufacturer. Jim Humble must be held accountable for creating this fraudulent product and thereby harming people. Send a complaint to the Federal Trade Commission. The website is https://econsumer.ftccomplaintassistant.gov/.
This is the same plea that the FDA issued. They also did not ask for any balanced information. They asked only for negative information. They tried to make an example out of one MMS supplier to dissuade others from selling the product, severely disrupting his operations. Thankfully, he’s back in business.
I was going to leave Mr. Campbell with the last words, but they merit occasional comment:
Note: I am not attempting to “compete” with Jim Humble. I am astonished that it has come this far, that he has fooled so many people into thinking his remedy is safe. It is not.
I wonder how gullible does Mr. Campbell think people are, that they can’t tell the difference between pain being constant before MMS, and it being gone afterward. Tumors being present before, and gone afterward; headaches, viral and bacterial or respiratory problems being present before, and gone afterward. How is that being “fooled?” This is not to say that such effects have happened for every person that has tried MMS, because each person is unique. If you’re trying to “cure” a condition, MMS cannot produce uniform results any more than any other product can. However, if you’re trying to safely oxygenate and disinfect your body, it is one of the most simple and flexible options available
My only concern is for you and for your health. This is my life work. I don’t make a lot of money doing it. I do not have multi-level marketing people selling for me. I do not even sell the supplements that I recommend. I just tell you where to buy them, inexpensively and reliably. My goal is to help you become healthy and stay healthy throughout your life, and not to be harmed by pharmaceutical drugs and “alternative” medical frauds like MMS.
This “holier than thou,” “I’m on your side, but the other guy is not” approach is familiar. Call someone else a fraud to prop himself up. And yet, with his science not holding up, his main tools are misinformation and fear.
End Notes: The documentation presented by Jim Humble for Miracle Mineral Supplement is replete with biological misinformation and fraud. They make no sense.
He offers no examples that support his point, and his description of accepted science is replete with misrepresentations.
Humble claims that activated MMS (chlorine dioxide) is absorbed into the body through the stomach lining. No nutrients are absorbed through the stomach lining; the first place in the alimentary canal where anything can be absorbed is the small intestine.
Water passes through every aspect of the body. It carries its contents as both intracelluar and extracellular fluids. If oxygen is in it, you can bet it passes through the stomach lining. By the way, once activated, chlorine dioxide can also be absorbed through the skin, because water travels everywhere.
Humble claims that red blood cells “armed” with chlorine dioxide will destroy “parasites, fungi, or diseased cells that all have low pH.” Red blood cells do not and cannot have this capability – their function is to carry oxygen to cells all over the body, not to kill pathogens. (It is white blood cells that are the components of the immune system that destroy pathogens, and they don’t need MMS to help them.) When red blood cells pick up chlorine dioxide, they can no longer pick up oxygen, and they become useless. In essence, they are destroyed, and this can cause reduced oxygen to your body, similar to carbon monoxide poisoning.
He’s saying that the opposite of what is actually happening, can happen. There is a very strong desire for you to not see what is happening, not acknowledge what people are saying they’ve experienced by way of MMS disinfection. I’m not saying that this is the only way. You should simply understand that this is a viable one.
Humble claims to have cured thousands of people in Africa of malaria, hepatitis, cancer, and AIDS with MMS. But the only public evidence is that he provided MMS to people; there was no standardized medical evaluation of the results. He appears to me to be someone who knows just enough about chemistry to make his claims believable by people who don’t study chemistry or human physiology, intent on making money selling his books and supporting the people who sell the product and his book..
The only really important factor here is whether the science is credible. Jim Humble has spent more time studying the health effects of MMS disinfection by way of application on willing human beings (not mice or rats), for a wider variety of conditions than anyone else earth. Irrespective of whether “mythbusters” can follow an audit trail of his travels, he described the science correctly enough to show people how to do it. Mr. Campbell has taken great effort at misquoting the science of chlorine dioxide in his attempts at dissuasion. If the truth isn’t convincing or supportive of your reasoning, then lie.
Humble claims that MMS kills the “little bugs” in cells that cause cancer. By this claim he proves himself to be a complete charlatan or know-nothing.
This sounds pretty personal to me.
Cancerous cells are genetically deformed cells; they have no “little bugs” in them, and they are not affected by MMS.
Mr. Campbell is entitled to his opinion, just as Jim Humble. I don’t know if Mr. Campbell has helped anyone mitigate cancer using methods that he discovered, but I do know people who have done so using Jim’s protocol.
Quite the contrary: MMS depletes the antioxidants the human body uses to destroy cancer cells. Humble has likely caused the deaths of thousands of people, by negligently promoting this false “miracle” cancer cure that people then rely on instead of seeking a real, proven natural therapy. There are proven cures for cancer, developed by Matthias Rath and Hugh Riordan, which use natural food-based substances such as vitamin C to enhance immunity, stop cancer spread, and kill cancer cells.
The beauty of MMS is that it doesn’t compete with any method that actually works. It enhances the effectiveness of natural modalities. This “sky is falling” story is worse than Chicken Little.
Humble’s product has sickened many, many people, killed at least one person, as I noted above, and has likely lead to the death of many others.
This is an example of how truth takes a back seat when there is an agenda. Not only is the assertion false, unsupported even after an investigation that lasted over one year, since no other deaths are even remotely connected to MMS use, he speculates on what he believes is likely to happen.
Humble and/or his supporters appear to have created an organization called the Health Freedom Alliance which heavily promotes MMS along with information about some valid health and environmental concerns on its website and mailing list. Its website is hosted in The Netherlands, the site owner and contact information are privacy protected, and the website has no information about the organization or contact information, no address, no phone number. This is all extremely unusual – and very suspicious – for a supposedly public purpose organization.
This has nothing to do with whether MMS works or not.
And now (this really takes the cake) Humble has founded a new church (Genesis II Church of Health and Healing) and made himself a Bishop of it! So now, assumedly, his words will have the backing of God Almighty.
Chlorine dioxide was around before Jim Humble was a gleam in his parents’ eyes. It was doing what it does right under our noses. It doesn’t need a church to protect it. It needs intelligent people who have eyes to see the environmental, nutritional, and cultural contributors to disease, and have the courage change our ways. I can’t change you, only you can change your ways. I can give you the best information as I understand it, and update it when I learn something better.
Jim Humble is a human being just like Jonathan Campbell. Mr. Campbell is in no position to judge Jim Humble’s actions, whether he knows the difference between chlorine and chlorine dioxide or not. MMS is just one way that we can safely and effectively disinfect the body.
If anything, Mr. Humble’s most significant contribution and influence, outside of gaining the insight and working out the MMS protocol, was to insist that the pricing remain low, so as to be accessible and available to everyone. Outside of deep, conscious breathing exercises, and conscious reorganization of water, which cost nothing, there are precious few products that can do so much for a person’s toxicological repair, for so little money.
