Does this "Ebola Cure" really help? - http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=11353250

It's basically a poison in itself, so does that mean two poisons neutralise each other? Lol

Yeah well chlorine bleach will surely kill any pathogen.  Only problem being that it will kill you along with it.

Small amounts of bleach can be used as a water purifier. Maybe clean water allows some to last longer. The Milan Brych sp? Fraud claimed to cure cancer but the cemetary filled up just the same.

Well chemo is targeted at fast dividing cells.  Chlorine isn't targeted at anything in particular, it's an oxidising agent.

Scammers and con artists are everywhere.  And none more so than among those who are into "alternative medicine".  Their gullibility, and sadly oftentimes, vulnerability, makes them an easy mark for scammers.

Chlorine would kill you before it got to the virus.

No, I most certainly wouldn't add to my bodies physiological stress by ingesting bleach while it tries to fight an Ebola infection.

Listen to the man himself interviewed on National Radio:

http://www.radionz.co.nz/national/programmes/morningreport/audio/20156162/-cure-all-product-defended-by-church

The "Miracle Mineral Solution" has "20 million users" and cures: AIDS, malaria (overnight), cancer, herpes, multiple sclerosis, autism, and the common cold.

It is NOT a bleach - it is an "oxidizing agent".

How does it work?  "I'ts a voltage - oxygen is 1.3 volts" ... "the pathogens give up 5 or 6 electrons and they die".

So now you know.

[EDIT]  It costs $650 to go to one of his seminars, so it must be true.
