Irish patients warned 'miracle cure' from US church is bleach

A CONTROVERSIAL American Church which is coming to Ireland this weekend is promising a “miracle” cure for patients – but it is, in fact, industrial-strength bleach.
The Genesis II Church will hold an event in Monkstown in Dublin over the weekend.
On its website it is advertising the event as including access to its “miracle mineral solution” which, it claims, can “remove” a number of serious conditions including cancer, HIV and autism.
However, the product – which is also known as MMS – has been banned in a number of countries including the US and the UK because tests by health and food watchdogs identified it as an “industrial-strength bleach”.
Health watchdogs here, contacted by the Irish Examiner newspaper, have also issued warnings.
It is understood that those planning to attend the seminar over the weekend will be asked to pay a €295 compulsory donation. The church has a number of Irish members.
The church has insisted that events this weekend will focus on a “water purification” seminar – but its website states otherwise.
The church has been the subject of a BBC expose, after which it was banned in a number of countries.
