- A group of online conspiracy theorists claim that a type of toxic bleach is a wonder-cure they call Miracle Mineral Solution (MMS).
- The substance has been propped up by a video the Red Cross may have been tricked into helping make. The charity now says it“does not support or endorse in any manner” the claims made on the video.
- MMS advocates also cite a questionable scientific study to support their claims.
- The study is by Dr. Enno Freye, an appellate professor at Heinrich Heine University in Düsseldorf, Germany.
- In the study, he claims to have cured malaria patients using a substance made of sodium chlrorite and citric acid, the main ingredients of MMS.
- Business Insider asked Freye’s university about the study, which said it had stripped him of his academic title and disavows his study.
