The National Institute of Toxicology has warned of the health risk of the product ‘Solución Mineral Milagrosa,’ which is marketed as a remedy for diseases such as cancer or hepatitis and which is being promoted by Covid-19 denial groups.
AS reported by the Ministry of Justice in a statement, the Toxicological Information Service (SIT) of the National Institute of Toxicology and Forensic Sciences (INTCF) has detected that the alleged remedy, Solución Mineral Milagrosa, is composed of 28 per cent sodium chlorite, harmful to human health.
The company that markets Solución Mineral Milagrosa through the Internet, MMS®, indicates that it is for human consumption with antiviral properties against cancer or hepatitis. But in reality, the SIT warns, it is “a highly toxic aqueous solution that is not made to be ingested by people.”
The Toxicological Information Service has recalled that both the Spanish Agency for Medicines and Health Products (AEMPS) in Spain and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the US, have warned about the danger of Solución Mineral Milagrosa, whose intake can affect different organs and cause insufficiency liver disease and nephrotoxicity, hemolysis and kidney failure.
The substance is only eliminated through the kidneys and it does so slowly so that it can have a cumulative effect, added the SIT, which cites nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea among the possible toxic effects; hypotension; cyanosis; metabolic disturbances such as hyperchloremia; pulmonary alterations such as pulmonary oedema; as well as headache and cerebral oedema.
