person pouring clorox bleach into measuring cup
Church leaders claim their "miracle solution" has the power to cure 95% of the world's diseases. The FDA says otherwise.

A religious group with a controversial past has found itself in hot water once again after organizing an event to showcase a special healing beverage it manufactures and sells. But according to the FDA, this so-called "miracle cure" is actually just industrial bleach.

The Genesis II Church of Health and Healing invited its followers to attend the recent event in Leavenworth, WA. All it took to gain access to the exclusive magical healing substance dubbed "Miracle Mineral Solution" was a $450 non-refundable registration fee (plus the cost of the product itself, of course).

Why the high cost? Well, this is no run of the mill mineral supplement, church leaders say. They claim it has the power to cure 95% of the world's diseases, including some of the most serious ailments such as malaria, Ebola, HIV, diabetes, and all types of cancer.

FDA: "Beware of False Claims"

And yet, as totally believable as that claim sounds, the FDA says otherwise. In fact, not only is this substance unlikely to solve any existing health problems - it may actually cause some new ones. Per FDA testing, this supposed miracle substance contains chlorine dioxide, a type of powerful industrial bleach commonly used in textile production.

One piece of promotional material dug up by the Guardian drew particular ire. The video, filmed in Uganda, features "an infant lying in his or her mother's arms who is made to drink a cup of the bleach. The child screams as the fluid is swallowed."

Prior to the church event, the federal agency issued a warning urging people not to attend or consume the beverage. However, it's not clear how many followers took that advice.

Repeat Offenders

Apparently, this isn't the first time the Genesis II Church has come under scrutiny. According to prior reports, federal agencies have been warning about the church's questionable medical claims and products as far back as 2010. An ABC News report published in 2016 describes Genesis II founder Jim Humble (who has since retired) as "a former Scientologist who claims he's a billion-year-old god from the Andromeda galaxy."

Why anyone would take medical advice from a glorified bleach salesman is a bit of a head-scratcher, but despite the controversy, some loyal followers continue to defend the church and its mission. Your thoughts?

    Surprisingly, bleach is not a poison within reason. It does impart a taste in water if applied too strong, but I'm not aware of too many ill effects. I daresay drinking it straight could provide a problem. Doing anything to an extreme can cause problems. I use a camper and always bleach all the water that I put in the water system. The formula for that is 1 ounce for 60 gallons of water. I sometimes go a little bit above that if it's going to sit for a while, and I still don't taste bleach. It does evaporate Out of standing water, especially if the water is sloshed back and forth. Adding it just means that at that time the water is bacteria free. The water can be re-contaminated with dirty containers If a person isn't careful. Howard

      True, but remember this is a stronger solution and they are drinking it for healing purposes. Bleach kills germs but not diseases.

      1. Arnie's Avatar Arnie

        They are not drinking bleach! That is pure misinformation. The (not bleach) solution dosage is measured in drops, (one to three usually). I suggest we don;t take the FDA's political word for it. There are too many first hand accounts of it working even on diseases.

          Wow Pat, not to "dis" your beliefs, bleach can kill. It is a poison and can burn u. While it appears you are a memeber or a willing bystander, your "magic potion" will kill. The founder was 1. A former scientologist, first uh oh. A group founded by a science fiction writer. 2. He claimed to be from outer space. Those alone should give anyone pause. Do you think jim jones was a great prophet also. How about those ppl in CA that took poison to hasten thier departure to a space craft hovering in space? Normal ppl do not think like that. There is no proof .

      Consumption of chlorine dioxide solutions, such as MMS, can cause nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and severe dehydration. These products should not be consumed or given to someone to consume.

      Legionella pneumophila bacteria can cause Legionnaires' disease, a potentially deadly type of pneumonia. Chlorine dioxide is not a cure or treatment for medical ailments, including but not limited to autism, HIV, malaria, hepatitis viruses, influenza, common colds, and cancer.

    People are slowly losing their minds. In many American health food stores they are selling hydrogen peroxide as a cure all elixir. If you think this happens only in other countries think again. If you tell someone that you can cure cancer by by drinking gasoline someone will buy it and drink it down. To bad know one can find a real cure for all the haterd in the world. I'd even buy that.

      The only way drinking gasoline could cure cancer, (and it really could), is to chase it with a lit match. That would put an end to your cancer, and everything else. Don't forget the song from MASH "Suicide is painless... except for the momentary explosion.

    Id like to see the toxicology report / ingredient list. The FDA indicated a form of bleach & . Fluorides in our drinking water is good for us. Formaldehydes, metals and other questionable found in many inoculations is safe. With all the chemicals in foods & body care products is also safe & good for us, I bet if the FDA authorized & profited from this cocktail it would be legal & safe. Until the lawsuits kick in.

      Home work needed--the product is 'sodium chlorite' not chlorine. Read the books and research. I have taken it years back after doing my research, for probable breast cancer. I was a science major and it did no harm and I don't have cancer. Look before you leap!!!!! We all know that FDA doesn't like cheap fixes, especially when it is natural and can't be patented.
      Dr. Shealy sent this out-- Thanks to the American Dental Association, which may be as evil as MonSatan, for almost 80 years most Americans have been slowly poisoned. To summarize the scientifically published problems with fluoridated water. Furthermore, many drugs such as Prozac contain fluoride.

      1. There are NO DOUBLE-BLIND studies showing fluoride decreases cavities.

      2. Fluoridated water lowers IQ 5 to 10 points!! Even Harvard reported this!!

      3. It calcifies the pineal gland and even before that it leads to earlier sexual maturity.

      4. Ultimately it stops production of melatonin, leading to marked increases in insomnia.

      5. Increases the rate of osteosarcoma, one of the most serious cancers, in young men.

      6. Markedly increases risk of hip fractures.

      7. Markedly increases fluorosis of teeth.

      8. Increases risk of Down syndrome!

      9. Markedly decreases fertility in men and women!!

      10. Causes hypothyroidism and false blood testing of thyroid

      11. Damages the entire pituitary function.

      12. Increases risk of Alzheimer’s.

      Time to start a MASSIVE class action law suit against the American Dental Association, every city that fluoridates and the FDA!!!!!!! Just a few pertinent articles among 40 or more: J Bone Mineral Research, 1989:4(suppl 1); S376 J Nat Cancer Inst. 1990; 82: 1118-1126 NJ, Dept of Health, November 8, 1992 Fluoride. 1996 28: 189-192

      I've always thought drinking bleach was deadly, and otherwise turns things white. Michael Jackson didn't drink bleach to turn white, and Al Jolson didn't drink anything to turn black. Besides that, being white is not a cureall. We have a lot of problems, too. And I thought God was eternal, so how could this one have been born a billion years ago, in a galaxy he was supposed to have created. I think I'll turn on my DVD player, and watch One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest, one more time.

    It's obvious from the article and the comments, that most have no idea what MMS is. Bleach is sodium hypochlorite and MMS is chlorine dioxide. Two totally different things.I've spent about 60 years in the health field and have used MMS to good effect. While I wouldn't use it on a daily basis, it does have a place in some instances.

    Generally speaking, ingestion of bleaches can cause damage to the esophagus and stomach, possibly leading to death. On contact with the skin or eyes, they may cause irritation, drying, and potentially burns.

  1. Sandra Wolfe's Avatar Sandra Wolfe

    Instead of spending hundred's of dollar's at your dentist to get your teeth bleached, add a very small amount in your water pik when you go to use it. You will find not only does it whitened your teeth but is also healthy for gums.

  1. David's Avatar David

    @dave Thank you for clarifying. If ULC is going to write a journalistic article, it would be a good idea to research both sides thoroughly rather than make assumptions and throwing out attack comments. I have also been in the holistic health field for 40 years and MMS has a place and a use, it seems to me. I'm no fan of Scientology, but this is the first I have heard that association, It may be true, I have not researched it. MMS is a substance that can be used or not, but really has nothing to do with the personality that may be promoting it. I also think we should live in a free society where we all get to make sovereign choices. If MMS is proven to be dangerous and truly hurts people then it will fade away fast, and responsible parties can be dealt with. But we should do the honest science and reporting before rushing to judgment.

    As I am an avid outdoors guy and I do add a few drops to my water I pack with me. In addition I add it to my 55 gallon water drums that are sealed and changed out every 2 years. I test the the water in the drums every 2 years and is as pure as the day I sealed them with bleach, 1 cup per 55 gallons, and no smell. So that being said it does good for keeping water free of microorganisms. However I would never suggest taking it full strength! And I am a child of our father God.

    Members of the US armed forces stationed in Vietnam during the war there routinely drank water with added bleach for purification. Ask anyone who was there, unless many personnel weren't aware of what they were drinking. Before the advent of bottled water, any scientific expedition to a remote area carried water purification equipment and also bleach in case the equipment broke down.

    We use wash clothes instead of paper towels. So, we use bleach to help clean the wash clothes. We don't use hot water. I soak a load of wash clothes in the soapy water (we use a tablespoon of GV dish soap) and a quarter cup of bleach and soak for an hour. I try to limit total bleach use to two gallons a year because we have a septic tank (our septic tank is 44 years old. We have used it for 36 years. It still works fine and has never been pumped!) Bleach kills bacteria whether aerobic or anaerobic. Too much bleach kills a septic tank, especially if there is a garbage disposal, which we don't have. We compost scrap food.

    I think this entire topic is missing the bigger picture... lack of affordable healthcare. People wouldn't be so desperate for relief from their illness that they would be willing to pay $450 for a dangerous long shot if they didn't have to spend tens of thousands of dollars addressing the illness through the current healthcare system.

    I mean. Technically if humanity was the disease, they wouldn't be wrong lol. In all seriousness though, although of course drinking bleach is not a good thing lol - my research shows up a few claims of small doses within some Multiple-Mineral Solutions (MMS) have turned up to ( acclaimedly by some) cure cancer. Irony is the face of God as they say, and that said- ~the FDA does approve of Fluoride in our toothpaste - a chemical classified as neurotoxin on their own website. Their own studies turns up that Fluoride creates rotting of the teeth, a symptom we even came up with a technical term for called dental fluorosis.

    I am not surprise that,the world is still leaving in the dark.Americans I mean.The said church-Genesis Group did not invent the solution. I am not surprise too that the FDA is hot about this matter.

    The lobbyist in America should now begin to tremble, the pharmaceutical companies too.The world is perishing every second because of incurable diseases.While cures are kept in dark chambers awaiting what?That the entire world population should shrink why some high level demonic individuals and their companies pocket fabulous sums of dollars.

    My problem is not the church in question. May I ask where this miracle solution came from...we all know the truth.Who is paying who to promote or try to castigate a church or silence those who would try to offer help to the poor?

    This matter is quite sensitive and it puzzles me that,it's coming up.The God sent author of this solution should be the one to answer the trillion dollar question.He invented it not to make money and today some unscrupulous individuals are now trying to commercialize the solution?

    I call on the church to stop what they are doing.That solution is meant to be free of charge.However it could be bought but the cost is of no importance. ..the value lies in the hope it gives to those in need.

    God bless the inventor.

We have minimal faith in what the FDA / government claims. Government agencies claim Round-up is safe as Judge awards a $298 mil judgment against Monsanto (reduced to $100m). Dumping antifreeze is illegal in most jurisdictions, but glyphosate is permitted to be dumped. ~ Google... Dead spot in the Atlantic & Golf Of Mex. FenFen was safe, Sodium Chloride & Fluoride in our drinking water is permitted. Illegal to drink raw milk in many areas. Formaldehyde / resins are in most MFG'ed building materials. In the USA, Everything is safe till the lawsuits kick in. FDA claims "only a drug can prevent or cure". So much for citrus addressing Scurvy. On a side note. No matter how much of this MMS one consumes, if you are lacking nutrients, this is not the way to get it. Epigeniticly speaking. Stress, Negative thoughts and the like can also be a factor in cellular acidification (1 of the 3 root feeds for cancer to exist). PS: PPL that drink poisons and have no ill-effects safely do so because they bless the compound B4 consumption. Blessing can change the vibratory frequency of the item consumed. Watch the movie "STINK" and "THEY LIVE (Sunglasses) and "first do no harm documentary". Read the Dr Mercola Website database (along w/his citations, references, abstracts". This will give most readers a well-rounded idea how humans are treated like cattle by the elite-100 ppl / companies on the planet.
