When a 15-year-old teenager from Wales, Rhys Morgan posted a warning on the social networking website Twitter regarding the ‘miracle drug’, he didn’t have idea that people across the world would read his message.
Rhys is suffering from Crohn's disease and came to know about a substance known as Miracle Mineral Solution (MMS) when he was finding a treatment option for his problem, which causes inflammation of the digestive tract.
Morgan informed AFP, “I found out about it while browsing a support forum for Crohn's disease, which I was diagnosed with earlier this year”.
The website claims that more than 75,000 people in Africa have undergone MMS test. The website also reported that the creator of the drug, Jim Humble has treated as many as 2,000 people suffering from malaria with this drug.
Mr. Humble also stated that millions of people are using this drug to cure everything from AIDS to cancer, to cuts and burns. He said the only thing that can’t be cured by this drug are broken bones.
After browsing on the Internet, Morgan noticed a warning about this drug on the US Food and Drug Administration website, which mentioned that the drug is an industrial bleach and can cause severe health complications.
Later, the Food Standards Agency of Britain also issued a similar statement about the product, saying that ‘when taken as directed it could cause severe nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea’.
