Over the last 12 months, Autism South Africa, Autism Western Cape, other non-profit organisations for autism and various healthcare professionals in South Africa have received enquiries from families about the potential benefits of Chlorine Dioxide/Miracle Mineral Solution (‘CD/MMS’) as a treatment or ‘cure’ for autism.
Autism Western Cape supports the position of the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) in the USA which has issued formal warnings about the dangers of this proposed treatment.
We support the FDA position that there is no scientific evidence of benefit from this treatment and that there is clear evidence of harm, including very serious harm, or even death associated with CD/MMS.
The FDA issued statements against CD/MMS as early as 2010 and made a further statement in April 2014 (‘Beware of False or Misleading Claims for Treating Autism’).
