Since Autism was first used as a term in the early 1900s people have been looking for, and touting, various cures. The latest fad miracle is Chlorine Dioxide (MMS- or Mineral Miracle Supplement) Treatment. Several books have been written on the subject, new websites are popping up everyday, and suppliers are emerging so fast it is hard to keep track of them all. Hoards of parents are using the various forms of Chlorine Dioxide treatment in the hopes of curing Autism.
Should we be using bleach-based oral therapies for our children?
I am APPALLED that there are parents out there willing to feed their children bleach, because that IS what this treatment comes down to, in hopes of curing Autism. Leaving aside the repugnancy of 'cure' rather than strategies to help your child be the most glorious person they can be, that aside, Chlorine Dioxide Treatments come down to, quite simply, poisoning your child.
A myriad of books are coming out, all taking advantage of this latest, and quite dangerous fad. A wonderful, sharp as a tack friend and fellow blogger has written a review of one such book on Amazon. Her research is exemplary, so please follow this LINK to read her review AND her response to an erroneously informed comment. Please LIKE her comments, as this will help anyone considering purchasing the book to think twice. Here is a LINK to some more comments that you should also LIKE in an effort to help keep misinformed parents AWAY from Chlorine Dioxide Treatments,

Please, help make sure no person is poisoned in an effort to cure Autism.
As I come across other blogs, research articles, websites, et al on this subject I will add them here!
