Thank you mod for doing this!
As far as I am concerned I will make a point to try and stay respectful without getting personal. That said I think that when someone brings in their personal experiences into an argument then you tend to open yourself up for a more personal discussion.
I am primarily interested in one thing. EVIDENCE. Actual physical scientific (verifiable) evidence that proves MMS's claims.
I do NOT accept as evidence the following (maybe others will agree here)
1. anecdotal stories of thousands of people being saved from the brink of death. This is not provable.
2. Personal accounts of how it worked for you...again not actual evidence of anything (for all you know it could have had a placebo effect)
3. Videos of those claiming to be cured by MMS. I know there are LOTS and lots of these videos floating around the internet, I have watched several myself. If all one had to do to prove something is post a video of it there wouldn't be a discussion as to the reality of a big foot or UFOs whizzing around the skies.
If one argues that this is all there is then I am sorry to say this skeptic won't be very impressed at all.
I am looking for one study, a single study that shows that a person who took MMS (say who has AIDS) had the virus pre MMS and then after MMS the virus was no longer in the body. That is a cure, that is something that is cured. Just feeling better after taking it is NOT a cure. That is a placebo effect if anything.
I appreciate that the common counter argument to the lack of actual scientific data is the FDA doesn't want this info to get out or the FDA is somehow conspiring against MMS, I am not interested in these theories personally, although someone might be. That is like saying the government is keeping it quiet about aliens...I can make an outrageous claim but don't expect anyone to take it seriously.
Finally, I personally think Jim Humble is quite the clever con man. His mantra is this stuff can be made for pennies but he SELLS a product MMS and books about it and I very much doubt that money is going to charity. So my final point is, why if Jim Humble says this stuff can be made for nearly free is he encouraging people to buy his book (to hear fantastical claims of it curing everything?) and buy his product.
MMS is bleach glorified. The claim is that it attacks only the disease, that is strictly impossible. Bleach is an opportunist, it kills everything good and bad there is no magical way it can suddenly only attack diseased cells. That part of the argument has long confused me. Bleach doesn't act differently inside the body than out just based on it suddenly being ingested.
MMS is being touted as a PANACEA, it has been claimed to cure the following (that I have read thus far) AIDS, MALARIA, CHOLERA, HERPES,ANCE, BAD BREATH, FLU and finally CANCER...Maybe more that I haven't read about. Throughout recent history there have been many claims of a panacea being found and they have ALL been untrue. There is literally no such thing as a panacea and there are people all over the internet claiming MMS is that very thing. I have seen zero actual proof to this effect. The only thing I do see is repeated claims that doctors don't care (I find that hard to believe on numerous levels) the FDA is conspiring against MMS because there is no money it or something, and people just are too close minded to BELIEVE...Once again some form of actual scientific proof would be real swell..
