Several U.K. parents have forced their kids into consuming bleach or even given them bleach enemas in hopes of curing their autism.
Experts warn that bleach causes severe internal burns, and the “improvement” in autism symptoms the kids may experience is due to them being terrified of the “treatment.”
Parents reportedly forced kids into bleach enemas after taking online advice from a former drug-addict called Danny Glass, who claims that internal parasites cause autism and bleach is the cure.
Doctors warn that such remedies will kill children. In the U.K., one in 100 children lives with autism, which is a neuro-developmental condition that has no cure. The symptoms can only be alleviated.
Dr Jeff Foster said in an interview that autism cannot be reversed, but few people understand the condition. The child develops the condition either in their mother’s womb or in early childhood.
Foster warned that forcing kids to drink bleach is like playing a “roulette game” “Eventually someone will die. It’s only a matter of time,” the doctor explained.
Parents Tricked into Giving their Kids Bleach Enemas
The dangerous practice has gained traction in recent years, with entire Facebook groups being dedicated to it. On those groups, parents are advised to give their children the Miracle Mineral Solution (MMS) to cure autism.
MMS, which hasn’t been approved anywhere in the world, is a mix of citric acid powder and sodium chlorite, in other words bleach, which causes kids to vomit, have diarrhea, and suffer from dehydration.
The formula sells for $42 (£30) on some websites in the U.K. Its maker claims that it is a “water purification and citric activator.” The product, though, has a label saying it should be kept out of reach of children and not be ingested.
On some U.K.-based websites, parents posted pictures of the parasites that their kids reportedly eliminated after being given enemas with the bleach-based formula.
