Marketer Prohibited From Promoting Mineral "Cure" For Autism

Kerri Rivera, author of "Healing the Symptoms Known As Autism," has signed an agreement with the Illinois Attorney General which prohibits her from promoting Miracle Mineral Supplement (MMS) as a cure for autism.

Miracle Mineral Supplement contains 28% sodium chlorite in distilled water. Product directions state it should be mixed with lemon juice, lime juice, or another acid before drinking. However, the FDA has warned that when acid is added to the supplement, the mixture becomes chlorine dioxide, a powerful bleaching agent, and that drinking the recommended dose could cause nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and symptoms of severe dehydration.

Rivera marketed the product at conferences for autism, as well as in her book. There is currently an online petition to have her book removed from Amazon.com.

The product has also been promoted to treat conditions such as HIV, hepatitis, the H1N1 flu virus, common colds, acne and cancer.
