BBC News - Alert issued on danger supplement

BBC News - Alert issued on danger supplement

"Food watchdogs have issued an alert after finding that a chemical marketed online as a health supplement was similar to industrial-strength bleach.

'Miracle Mineral Supplement' is 28% sodium chlorite - which becomes bleach when mixed with citric acid.

Even taken as instructed, experts say it can cause severe vomiting and diarrhoea - and mixing it wrongly could lead to respiratory failure."

Actually, I think it is industrial bleach. Those who market it to sick people should be ashamed of themselves. I'm surprised that no one has forced them to drink it themselves. I know that sounds bloodthirsty, but they are hurting people for profit.
