A signed agreement was obtained by the Illinois Attorney General’s office which promises not to promote this harmful substance.
NBC 5 have previously investigated Kerri Rivera, an advocate for the use of MMS, which is basically household bleach, and in an interview with them claimed that “autism is treatable,” further adding, “It’s avoidable. And I believe it’s curable.”
It was after NBC 5 aired this interview that the Attorney General’s office took action.
Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan told:
“I understand parents who would be desperate for, you know, some kind of treatment,” Ms Madigan said. “But right now when you’re talking to medical professionals, there isn’t one. And somehow, ingesting what amounts to a toxic chemical, bleach, is certainly not going to cure your child.”
As part of the signed agreement, Ms Rivera, will no longer be present at seminars or be allowed to sell any of her products in the state Illinois.
