Emily Willingham, the Science Editor of Thinking Person's Guide to Autism has started a petition on Change.org to end the use and distribution of Miracle Mineral Supplement (MMS) as an autism treatment. It sounds harmless but what MMS really is is an industrial strength bleach that is being given as drinks, baths and enemas to autistic children to "cure" them of the toxins, pathogens and parasites that they have (I hope the sarcasm was noted).
The issue has received much attention this past week as AutismOne, the quackfest of "autism treatments" featured Kerri Rivera who enthusiastically promotes MMS to be given to infants, children and adults to "treat" their autism even though the FDA released this warning almost two years ago. In my opinion, anyone in attendance at that conference who did not speak out against this (and none did as far as I know) is guilty of promoting child abuse. But then again, we are talking about a crowd who knows no depths when it comes to "curing" their "vaccine-damaged" children. People who blithely announce they sprinkle an industrial chelator, OSR#1 on their children's breakfast foods or stem cells, chelation and an unimaginable aggregate of pharmaceuticals (for imaginary maladies), chelators, supplements and diets are not going to speak out against anyone who wants to give their autistic child a bleach enema.
There is a segment of the autism community who have utterly dehumanised their children and abuse them, their protestations of love aside. This segment congregates at AutismOne for "support", back-patting and proliferating more and more outrageous "cures" and "treatments" for autism. They need a wake-up call for what they are doing to their children and it's abuse.
Please sign the petition and share it with everyone you know.
