While most of us use bleach as a household cleaner, it has gained popularity as a miracle cure-all in the form of Miracle Mineral Solutions (MMS). Jim Humble, the creators of MMS, even founded a church to peddle his baloney, the Genesis II Church of Health and Healing. Pastor Jim Baldwin and Sam Little have taken MMS to Uganda, and Kerri Rivera has taken it to the desperate parents of autistic children.

Just what is bleach?
While “bleach” is sometimes used to refer to any whitening agent, we are specifically talking about chroline-based bleaches. The main ingredient in household bleach is sodium hypochlorite (NaOCl). Sodium hypochlorite molecules consist of one atom each of sodium, oxygen, and chlorine. It was first produced by Claude Luis Berthollet, a scientific advisor to Napoleon, in the 18th century. Before the miracle power of bleach, the best way to whiten clothes in the 18th century was a 12 hour soak in a mixture of lye and sour milk. Household bleach contains 3-6 percent sodium hypochlorite while wastewater treatment plants up that up to 15%
Deborah Blum in her article “Bleached to Death (Again)” explains why bleach is so effective at whitening and sterilizing,
...at its most basic, sodium hypochlorite is beautifully made to destroy living cells by efficiently corroding them into slush. One toxicology analysis I found simply described the results as "liquid necrosis".
Our Special Friend: Chlorine Dioxide
One type of chlorine-based bleach, chlorine dioxide, is most commonly used to bleach wood pulp and disinfect municipal water supplies. But it can do so much more!
It’s uses a a fumigant for blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries.
It’s uses to disinfect endoscopes, included cytoscopes for your pee hole and colonoscopes for your butt hole.
It controls zebra and quagga mussels in water intakes.
And it’s effective in eradicating bed bugs.
But what if, for some reason, a human being decided to have a chlorine dioxide cocktail? Doctors warn chlorine dioxide could do irreparable harm to a child’s body, by damaging tissues in the digestive system and wreaking havoc on red blood cells. Well that’s fun. What else can bleach do to the human body?
According to Dr. Daniel Brooks, medical director at Banner University Medical Center’s Poison and Drug Information Center and Outpatient Toxicology Clinic in Phoenix, “It can lead to kidney damage and kidney failure.”
Enter Jim Humble
But one man thought all the scientists and doctors were wrong about chlorine dioxide. That man’s name? Jim Humble, The father of modern bleach shenanigans.
Humble got his start in the health field in his early 20’s… running a health food store in Los Angeles. While in the “health field” he developed the “Nutritional Evaluation Test”, a 200 item questionnaire to determine nutritional deficits. The test entered the computer age and “was considered by many to be the most accurate method of determining deficiencies known at the time.” While curing disease by asking questions, Humble even managed to cure his own broken neck “in record time” with magnets.
Despite managing the health food store in his early twenties, Jim Humble claims his career started in the Aerospace industry as a research engineer. According to his website,
He worked on the first intercontinental missile, wrote instruction manuals for the first vacuum tube computers, worked on secret radio control electronics, and dozens of other “state of the art” electronic projects at Hughes Aircraft Company, Northrop Aircraft, General Motors Research Defense Laboratories, and others.
He also apparently worked on the atomic bomb and the lunar module. But in 2008, he admitted that he doesn’t have an engineering degree. In fact, Humble is something much more important! Along with denying his engineering degree, Humble, “claims to be a billion-year-old god from the Andromeda Galaxy who was sent to protect and monitor Earth.” From Humble himself:
I asked to be put in the part of the space navy that watched over Earth.
It can be hard to keep track of all Humble’s accomplishments, so he offers a useful summary on his website,
I have done many things in my lifetime—gone from a backwoods boy in Alabama, to the Marines, to a nutritional and alternative health enthusiast, to Aerospace, to electronics researcher, to inventor (of many things), to gold mining.
It was while gold mining in South America in 1996 that Jim Humble discovered the magical powers of industrial-strength whiteners. On the expedition, his traveling party became ill with Malaria But with just one treatment of a chlorine/water solution, they were cured within hours!
Miracle Mineral Solutions (MMS)
After seeing the healing powers of chlorine himself, Jim Humble started to sell the stuff himself, marketing the poison as Miracle Mineral Solutions. On his YouTube channel, Jim Humble shows how to prepare the tincture in his trademark short sleeve white button up and hat with green crystal emblem.
A McGill Office for Science and Society article titled, “Miracle Mineral Solution Is a Nightmare,” introduces their readers to MMS in this way,
There’s nothing subtle about the name of this purported wonder: “Miracle Mineral Solution (MMS)!” Well, there are no miracles to be had. Or minerals. Admittedly, however, there is a solution. Not a solution to any problem, but a solution in the sense of a substance being dissolved in water. And that substance is sodium chlorite.
Sodium chlorite has one extra atom of oxygen compared to household bleach and is used in mouthwash. Jim Humble recommends mixing MMS with orange juice. While drinking sodium chlorite is bad on its own (you don’t want to drink mouthwash, do you?), the acids in the orange juice produce chlorine dioxide, that wonderful bleach we’ve come to know and love. According to the EPA, chlorine dioxide is strong enough to kill anthrax spores.
Jim Humble is not humble about the positive effects of MMS,
It has proven to restore partial or full health to hundreds of thousands of people suffering from a wide range of disease, including cancer, diabetes, hepatitis A, B, C, Lyme disease, MRSA, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, HIV/AIDS, malaria, autism, infections of all kinds, arthritis, high cholesterol, acid reflux, kidney or liver diseases, aches and pains, allergies, urinary tract infections, digestive problems, high blood pressure, obesity, parasites, tumors and cysts, depression, sinus problems, eye disease, ear infections, dengue fever, skin problems, dental issues, problems with prostate (high PSA), erectile dysfunction and the list goes on.
While it has proven to restore partial or full health to people with these conditions, Humble stresses that MMS DOES NOT CURE DISEASE. Instead, it kills pathogens and destroys poisons, allowing the body to heal itself.
Just so we’re clear here: some of the immediate results of drinking bleach are nausea, vomiting, and a drastic drop in blood pressure. However Humble says that nausea is a good thing because it means that the toxins in your body are being eliminated. He does state that if the stomach ache is too uncomfortable it can be lessened “by eating cold apple slices that will absorb stomach toxins that have been dumped there.”
Remember though Humble said MMS does not cure disease and he made this even clearer to a statement to Business Insider:
I want to clarify a very important point. Many people naturally say 'MMS cures' this or that. I've made this same statement myself from time to time in certain situations, when put on the spot, or when the words were put in my mouth, or as a matter of going with the flow of terminology that others use. In our speech and in our global society, we often blur the lines with words and their meanings.
But for the record, I want to clarify here, MMS does not cure disease. MMS kills pathogens and destroys (oxidizes) poisons. When pathogens and poisons in the body are reduced or eliminated, then the body can function properly, and thereby heal. I often say 'the body heals the body.' MMS helps to line things up so the body can do just that.
Did you know that Humble is also targeted by big pharma? According to the McGill article mentioned above, a supporter of Humble explains why he is under attack,
Humble had become so famous that two drug companies contacted the Minister of Health (in an unnamed country) and threatened to quit shipping drugs to the local hospitals if she didn’t do something about the person claiming to be able to cure malaria.
Genesis II Church of Health and Healing
Not only does Jim Humble sell this crap; he appointed himself Archbishop of an entire church to promote bleaching your way to wellness: The Genesis II Church of Health and Healing. They describe themselves thusly:
There has never been a similar Church to this Church. There has never been a Church of Health and Healing. (In so far as our research has been able to determine). Our name is Genesis II Church of Health and Healing. The word Genesis means, ‘’ The Beginning.” The II (Two) symbolizes the second beginning. And we look at the words Health and Healing to indicate that we are working towards , ”bringing health to the world”.
While there are Bible quotes on the website, they do not appear to be a Christian church, although they do enjoy the word “Archbishop” as mentioned earlier.
Taking a look at their Beliefs page, some are a little troubling:
2. We believe that ALL people have the right to physical, mental and spiritual health
3. We believe that ALL people have the right to determine their OWN methods of attaining physical health
4. We believe that ALL people have the right to consume various products for their health including but not limited to vitamins, minerals, herbs, proteins, fats carbohydrates,and all other substances created by God in any quantities that they consider useful for their personal health
5. We believe that ALL people have the right to purchase these various products for their health and to maintain such products in their place of abode or wherever they so choose
6. We believe that ALL people have a right to live a disease-free life
7. We believe that ALL people have the right to accept or reject ANY drug, chemical and/or any substance from being injected into their bodies, or suggested, ordered or prescribed for their use by injection or ingestion or any other method of entering the human body.
About this right to take whatever you want, they do have some strong feelings about what you SHOULDN’T take.
Due to our study of “truth” and “true history,” we at the Genesis II Church of Health and Healing want to “proclaim” what we have learned regarding health, and the medical and pharmaceutical “industries.”
We proclaim to the world to:
NOT ask your doctor for ANY advice about health or nutrition! #1 cause of death in U.S. “iatrogenics,” death by doctors.
NOT go to a hospital unless an emergency!
NOT allow your children to be vaccinated for any reason, EVER!
NOT take pharmaceutical drugs. Be drug free!
NOT trust the educational system to teach truth about history, science, morals or God!
ONLY eat REAL foods organically and unprocessed!
Take personal responsibility for your OWN health and that of your family!
There is even a handy letter of religious exemption for vaccines and other mandatory medications signed by Archbishop Mark Grenon himself.
Despite the confidence the church has in their sacraments, the bottom of Jim Humble’s website offers a disclaimer about the religious nature of bleach.
The protocols described on this site are official sacraments of the Genesis II Church of Health and Healing. The reader accepts 100% responsibility for any and all use made of any information herein
Genesis II Seminars
Genesis II Church of Health and Healing doesn’t JUST offer information and a bleach store on their website. Instead they go to the people themselves and deliver their whitened wisdom first hand. In May 2019, they advertised a seminar on their Facebook page,
Bishop Mark Grenon will be leading the seminar and introducing attendees to Chlorine Dioxide Therapy, otherwise known as MMS.
You know Archbishop Grenon is legit because he also wears the Humble Suit of a white button up shirt and a green jeweled Cowboy hat.
For a mere 450 dollars (or 800 for couples and 400 for returning seminarians) in DONATIONS, you could attend and learn about the miracle of industrial poison. As a friendly reminder, the FDA thinks that “Consumers who have MMS should stop using it immediately and throw it away.”
ABC News Expose
ABC News did an expose of Grenon’s seminars all the way back in 2016. During the Seminar, Mark Grenon says, seeming out of nowhere, “I hope they think I’m a raving lunatic. I really do.” Grenon himself makes videos like Jim Humble does, with the nice touch of using a wine glass to do the mixing. The narrator of the ABC News says the contents of the seminar “came out of the book of shams”. Grenon himself is filmed saying,
I’ve got people curing some major stuff just from that, from prostate cancer, to brain cancer, to autism.
As he was walking into his hotel room, Brian Ross confronted Grenon about their bleach work. “We’re a church. We have sacraments we use.” When Ross pushed on the idea that bleach can cure anything, Grenon got a little miffed. “ You piece of @#$%, as we say in Spanish… Liars! Stupid son of a bitch!”
But we can’t JUST focus on Grenon’s work in the US yelling at news reporters, because his work is international. He has travelled to Africa, Latin America, and the Caribbean targeting people he calls “uneducated” and “simple”.
The report continues with the YouTube videos Genesis II uses to show how effective industrial whiteners are at improving your health. Somehow, they even roped a doctor, Dr. John Humiston, into providing a testimonial for MMS, saying, “I’ve used it on uh… my children.” ABC followed up with Dr. Humiston, and it turns out he’s actually not a big fan of MMS. “He no longer uses MMS and never believed it can cure any disease.” He says he now regrets his endorsement in the video. Dr. Humiston’s change of heart didn’t stop Grenon from using the video in the seminar.
We already know that MMS is just bleach, but ABC News has a really effective way of showing why you shouldn’t drink it. They poured MMS onto a pair of jeans, and it bleached BOTH SIDES. But enough about pants, let’s look at breast cancer. What does Grenon suggest? “If you get breast cancer, you, I’m not going to say deserve it, you brought it on.”
But Where is Jim Humble?
Turns out that Jim Humble pulled an L Ron Hubbard and tried disappearing into obscurity once his church was set up. But 20/20 tracked him down in Guadalajara. The exchange wasn’t very edifying
The government says what you’re selling is poison, that you’re hurting people, hurting children. There may have been deaths. What do you say about that?
I say it ain’t true.
You stand by this?
You think it’s a good thing for children to take?
I do, yes.
Women with breast cancer should take this you think?
Why, many women with breast cancer have been cured.
Is there any proof of that sir?
Uh I have…
There’s no proof of that and you know it.
I have thousands…
Aren’t you just a conman?
Well, I don’t think so.
Archbishop Mark Grenon Pushes Back!
So, what did “Archbishop” Mark Grenon, bigwig inside Genesis II Church think of all this negative reporting?
We don't answer FAKE NEWS organizations that lie with an agenda from the REAL owners that are just plain evil and DO NOT want to see the TRUTH get about about how BIG Pharma/Medical industry are paying the politicians and the courts to look the other way while the world is being poisoned by their Toxic DRUGS !
Robert Baldwin Brings MMS to Uganda
As per usual with alternative medicine quacks, MMS got its first mass trial outside the US, this time in Africa. Robert Baldwin, a New Jersey pastor, had a dream, a dream to give bleach to thousands of Ugandans. Apparently this is how Baldwin’s church, Global Healing, interprets its church’s goal of “using the power of Almighty God… to greatly reduce the loss of life” in Africa. But the Church thing might have been a bit of a ruse. Fiona O’Leary, an anti-quack medicine crusader, interviewed Baldwin under the pretense of being a journalist, saying in a recorded interview,
We don’t want to draw any attention … When you draw attention to MMS you run the risk of getting in trouble with the government or drug companies. You have to do it low key. That’s why I set it up through the church.
His subterfuge extended to using euphemisms on Facebook, where the “church” receives donations, to avoid the algorithm police,
I don’t call it MMS, I call it ‘healing water’, to protect myself. They are very sophisticated. Facebook has algorithms that can recognize ‘MMS’.
Baldwin imported MMS and citric acid into Uganda from China to make his dream come true. MMS, in usual fashion, was touted as a cure for Malaria and HIV/AIDS. Baldwin trained 1200 “clerics” how to administer MMS, and they each treated roughly 50 congregants. In case you overdid it with your MMS supplement this morning, that’s about 60,000 Ugandans poisoned, including children as young as 14 months old. Baldwin offered clerics who were especially “committed” to poisoning children a smartphone.
One question you might have is: Why Uganda? Surely there are infants in New Jersey who could benefit MMS poisoning? He chose Uganda, according to the Guardian article, because,
it was a poor country with weak regulation.America and Europe have much stricter laws so you are not as free to treat people because it is so controlled by the FDA. That’s why I work in developing countries.Those people in poor countries they don’t have the options that we have in the richer countries – they are much more open to receiving the blessings that God has given them.
Speaking of infants, how did Baldwin administer to children? Some sugar to make the bitterness go down? No, they just reduced the dose by half.
Little tiny infants can take a small amount, they will spit it out. It causes no harm – they just get diarrhea.
Archbishop Mark Grenon also downplays these side effects,
Yet we go a little too fast, get a little diarrhea, a little nausea, ‘Oh, they got diahhrea! A little nausea!”
“Just” diarrhea. What does the CDC have to say about diarrhea?
Diarrhea kills 2,195 children every day—more than AIDS, malaria, and measles combined. Diarrheal diseases account for 1 in 9 child deaths worldwide, making diarrhea the second leading cause of death among children under the age of 5.
So not only is MMS a dangerous poison which doesn’t cure anything, what it causes in children, diarrhea, is more dangerous than the diseases this idiot thinks MMS cures.
The Guardian wanted to hear from the man himself, and called Baldwin while he was in New Jersey. His explanation for poisoning children was simple,
We use natural healing therapies to help people – that’s something Christians do.”
Perhaps recognizing this was not the best statement to make on the matter, he added,
I don’t think it’s a good idea to be talking to the media right now.”
He stuck to his word, when the Guardian asked what doses his church was using, Baldwin hung up the phone.
What’s strange about Robert Baldwin’s “missionary” work is that all the poisonings were free of charge. Baldwin’s church does receive donations on Facebook, but they don’t appear to add up to very much. So, who exactly is bankrolling this mass poisoning? Apparently the man behind the poison is 25 year old Sam Little, who currently resides in Fort Portal in western Uganda.
Sam Little’s day job is being a clairvoyant, through his sadly now shuttered business Psychic Sam. He used to offer Tarot card readings, “healings”, and “regression therapy” for a little under 9 bucks a pop. But it wasn’t his ability to read minds that got him the cash to donate to Baldwin’s mass poisoning operation. Instead Little had to rely on “investments” to donate 10,000 dollars to Baldwin’s cause. He also donated 30,000 to donate a home for 20 homeless Ugandan children. He calls it “Sam’s orphanage” and insists he won’t treat THESE children with MMS. Maybe that should be a pointer that you shouldn’t treat ANY children with MMS?
But where did Sam Little get the wacky idea that drinking bleach was a great idea?
Somebody in my family was cured of cancer with MMS. I started researching online and saw more and more videos of people being cured. That’s when I decided to test it myself on malaria and travelled to Africa.
And test it he did! Without any medical training in sight, He traveled to Uganda to show local hospital workers how to poison nine people, including a 14 month old baby, who screamed throughout the entirety of the poisoning. Two hours later blood tests revealed their malaria was gone!
But Sam Little also had a scientist backing the efficacy of MMS. Enno Freye, from the Heinrich Heine University in Dusseldorf, Germany, conducted a 2018 study which showed the effectiveness of MMS on 500 malarial patients in Cameroon. The Guardian contacted the university, and their medical faculty was not very impressed with the study. Specifically, they found it, “scientifically worthless, contradictory and in part ethically problematic”In February, Enno Freye was stripped of his title as außerplanmäßiger Professor because he had, “severely damaged the respectability and trust this title requires”.He no longer works for Heinrich Heine University in any capacity.
What does Uganda think of all this?
Believe it or not, the Ugandan Ministry of Health wasn’t a big fan of unsponsored and totally horrific poisonings of its citizens. Emmanuel Ainebyoona spoke for the Ministry,
We are investigating these people’s activities. In the medical profession, you don’t do advertising when you heal people.
The Ugandan Ministry of Gender and Social Development was also skeptical of Little’s plans for an orphanage,
We have never received documents from Fort Portal showing the need for an orphanage. That is new information to us.
On May 25th, Ugandan police arrested Sam Little and two local men for “intoxicating the public”. Little, of course, was not a fan of being arrested, saying,
[I was acting] out of the kindness of my heart. I didn't have to come here to Africa. I could be spending my money on holidays.I'm quite wealthy; I've spent a lot of money helping people in my life. In different ways, not just with MMS. To tell me I'm doing what I'm doing is bad, that upsets me.”
Ugandan authorities also want to arrest Robert Baldwin, but that will be trickier as he is currently in New Jersey.
While Jim Humble is the inventor of MMS and Robert Baldwin and Sam Little are exporting MMS to Uganda, Kerri Rivera, a former Chicago real estate agent, is the biggest proponent of MMS for autism.She boosted MMS in her 2013 book Healing the Symptoms Known as Autism. In the book, she describes stumbling onto Humble’s ideas while “experimenting” with cures for her autistic son.
She already had a foot in the world of bad autism cures, having already tried hyperbaric chambers and heavy metal antidotes.But, there was a key cure missing from all these discussions, ”Disappointingly, there was absolutely nothing on the Internet about autism and Miracle Mineral Solution (MMS),” Rivera wrote in her book. Aside from running the autism bullshit circuit and promoting her noxious chemical poisons on Facebook and YouTube, she even runs her own chlorine dioxide clinic in… Puerto Vallarta, Mexico!
Rivera doesn’t take criticism lying down. In an email to NBC, Rivera defended her approach. “This is a medical issue. I have a degree in homeopathy and work with MDs and PhD scientists.” NBCNews was really curious where Rivera got her degree and who exactly these MDs and PhD scientists were. Sadly, Rivera never responded when NBCNews asked. Rivera is also aware that other MDs and PhD scientists are not so keen on making children drink bleach. But all she has for these fools is derision,
If it’s deadly, we would see dead people.
This is very true. Sadly, it’s also very true that we see dead people. According to the American Association of Poison Control Centers, there were 16,521 cases of chlorine dioxide poisoning over the past 5 years. 2,500 cases were children under 12 years of age. In 2,123 cases, there were serious side effects. In 50 they were life threatening. In 8, there were fatalities.
Melissa Eaton and Amanda Seigler Fight Back!
Mothers of children with autism are rightfully concerned and want to give their children all the help that they need. Autism is particularly horrible because it’s a condition that leaves mother’s feeling helpless as there is no cure to date. Grace Baranek, PhD is a professor and expert on autism spectrum disorder at the University of Southern California. She says,
Autism is a really complex disorder, and because we don't have a single specific cause, there is likely to be a multitude of factors that are contributing to the heterogeneity in autism. That leaves parents vulnerable, not knowing why their child has this disorder and, necessarily, what treatments are going to be most effective.
Melissa Eaton and Amanda Seigler, two mothers of autistic children, discovered, to their shock, the prevalence of MMS support in Facebook groups for parents of autistic children. So they decided to become the best kind of narcs,
It really weighs on you, but kids are being abused,” Eaton said. “You see it. You have the choice of doing something about it or letting it go. And I’m not the kind of person who can see something like that and just forget about it.
They pretended to be desperate parents looking for anyone to cure their children of autism to gain entrance into these Facebook groups. Then they take screenshots of conversations in the group of parents giving their children MMS, and the frightening side effects the parents mention.
My son is constantly making a gasping sound,” posted one Kansas mother who claimed to treat her adult son with chlorine dioxide, according to screenshots shared by Eaton and Seigler. “He won’t open his mouth,” a Canadian mom wrote of her 2-year-old’s unwillingness to drink the chlorine dioxide. “He screams. Spits. Flips over.
Besides taking MMS orally, some parents opt to give their children MMS enemas. From one Massachusetts parent:
Have not been able to get 5 year old to cooperate with enemas.
One Georgia mother posted a photo of a long thread of what looks like mucus that she said dislodged after giving her autistic son a chlorine dioxide emema. In the caption, she wrote, “It broke in half when Jojo trying to escape.” Despite the horrendous side effects of giving MMS to children, many comments on these posts suggest that this is just proof that they are working.
Screenshots in hand, Eaton and Seigler research to parents to find out who they are and where they live. With this info, they submit the screenshots to the local Child Protective Services. This is something moderators for these groups try to teach their members to avoid. From Business Insider,
One moderator of the forum advises parents not to share that they're giving their child MMS with "therapists, nurses, and school officials," to keep evidence of MMS use out of sight when therapists visit, and warns that "any protocol you use that is beyond the mainstream 'standard of care' can get you in trouble if you disclose publicly.
They also send the screenshots to Facebook, the FDA, the Department of Justice, and child abuse organizations.
Amazon Against Bleach Speech
Amazon halted the sale of books promoting bleach cures. These books taught readers how to make MMS in the privacy of their own home. According to NBC,
In March, after a critical report in Wired, Amazon banned two autism “cure” books, which included Kerri Rivera’s “Healing the Symptoms Known as Autism,” a guide in which she introduced Humble’s bleach recipe to parents of autistic children.
It isn’t just Amazon who hates free speech but also YouTube and Facebook, who have recently answered the demands of health advocates and lawmakers to stomp out on their platforms the spread of anti-vaccination and other related non-cures. According to and NBC article,
In April, Facebook deleted several chlorine dioxide pages and groups with thousands of members, citing a policy against content that promotes illegal drugs. That same month, YouTube deleted scores of videos and channels with millions of views dedicated to chlorine dioxide, explaining that they violated standards against “content intended to encourage dangerous activities that have an inherent risk of physical harm.
However, quick update here: I just did a quick amazon search and it looks like they can’t stop free bleach speech forever. ‘The MMS Handbook: Your Health in your Hands” by Antje Oswald M.D is a book you can purchase about MMS on Amazon that only costs $588.
All joking aside, if you or a family member ingests bleach or other toxic chemicals you should call the United States Poison Control center at 1-800-222-1222 or just dial 911.
