It doesn't work.Pity.
Matthew Hasty asked the Naked Scientists:Hey Chris and CrewMy name is Matthew Hasty and I'm an artist living in Memphis Tennessee I'll try and be brief... but first the obligatory praise:I seriously LOVE your podcast!!! I just wondered if you could look into something... ( If you have already... I'll get to it soon)I have recently found out about a product that is purported to rid the body of quite a list of diseases.... one claim has been that is has cured over 75,000 people in Africa of Malaria... It supposedly works on many viruses, bacteria, moulds and a host of parasites. It's called MMS (Miracle Mineral Suppliment) CLO2 or sodium chlorite ....Perhaps you could clear up what it does do and disseminate some of the information about it...Thanks for your show and keep up all of the brilliant work....What do you think?
"To put it bluntly, my own feeling about this sodium chlorite business is that it is a load of crap." Where do "my own feeling" and "load of crap" enter into a "scientific" discussion? Your presupposition that it is a "load of crap" is based, not an educated hypothesis, followed by a series of double blind tests during which you compiled "empirical evidence" (ever heard the phrase before?) and proved or disproved your hypothesis, but rather on "my own feeling." Question; why do you write on this forum? You should be on a religion or psychology based forum- something where emotion, and "touchy-feely" attitudes mean something. "Did you wake up feeling like this...what did you feel when you read about MMS?"
"If it worked then malaria would be extinct because this stuff is cheap and easy to get."When was the last time you priced it? And successfully purchased some? NOT? NOT!
Bored chemist wrote "It doesn't work. Pity."I followed this thread Bored chemist and I must say I was quite amused with the emotion with which you reacted. Throughout the thread you never really gave us any credible basis for your blunt put down. Even from a scientific perspective you offer no more evidence that mms doens't work than the so called quacks that claim that it does. Having said that it would make sense to me that the body would require a balance of both oxidents and anti-oxidents. Also from a non scientific standpoint but more a statistical one there sure are a lot of people out there in hundreds of different forums which have nothing to do with one another who are reporting positive results, some including very sound references. It is sad that medical cures must be "approved" by government organisations or administered by medical doctors in order to earn their credibility. I am new here and do not wish to offend anyone with my views. I am also presently using mms for hep c and from what I have read about Interferon I don't think I have made a bad choice. I will post my experience, be it good or bad, based on lab results before and after therapy.Peace...
