A self-proclaimed “non-religious” Genesis II Church of Health and Healing is being sued by the FDA for making and selling “Miracle Mineral Supplement” (MMS), a liquid substance promoted as an all-healing medicine. On April 20th they received a federal court order to stop the production.
MMS, which has been promoted by Florida-based Genesis II Church for several years already, is promised to cure and prevent a plethora of different illnesses, including migraines, multiple sclerosis, autism, Alzheimer’s, HIV/AIDS, diabetes, anal fistula, cancer, flu, and, of course, COVID-19.
The product’s site claims that its formula was invented back in 1996 by a man named Jim Humble, based on “a simple water purification substance (which at the time was used worldwide)”.
It is also infused with a chlorine dioxide content equivalent to industrial bleach. By selling MMS, the church violates the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act. The FDA also demands refunds for anyone who has ever purchased the “medicine”, reports Artstechnica.
The FDA already sent a warning to the church on April 8th, demanding them to stop the selling of MMS. The Genesis II representatives declined, arguing that their product, which they call “a Sacrament” is not for sale: it is simply shipped to everyone who makes a donation.
They also responded with claims that MMS is “…not dangerous or life threatening in any way as evidenced by the approval by your FDA and EPA in many applications!” (sic).
A preliminary-injunction hearing is set on May 1st.
