Desperate parents forcing children to drink bleach

A doctor has now come forward to warn that the quack remedies will end up killing children.

Police have questioned families over allegations children as young as two are being forced to drink poisonous chemicals.

The treatment being administered is CD (Chloride Dioxide) or MMS (Miracle Mineral Solution), which is administered orally or via an enema.

A secret Facebook group for parents claims autism is caused by parasites that can be cleansed using the potentially lethal treatment, an investigation by ‘The Sunday People’ found.

A doctor has now come forward to warn that the quack remedies will end up killing children. Dr Jeff Foster told the newspaper:

‘Autism is a neuro-developmental disease which is not amenable to any form of tablet treatment. It’s developed in the womb or early stages of life. You can’t just reverse it and anyone claiming that does not understand the condition.’

One in every 100 children in the UK suffers from some form of autism, for which there is no medical cure.

‘When you have very extreme measures like this to “cure” a condition it’s just a roulette game,’ Dr Foster said. ‘Eventually someone will die. It’s only a matter of time.’

MMS, which is unlicensed and has no proven medical benefits, is a potent cocktail of sodium chlorite mixed with citric acid powder to make an industrial-strength bleach.

Both the Food Standards Authority (FSA) and Medical and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) warn against using the treatment.

The FSA, in particular, warns that using the products could lead to nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, reduced blood pressure and, when undiluted, damage the gut or cause respiratory failure.

Despite this, the product is available for sale in the UK on the internet and is reportedly being stocked in some shops.
