To be fair to people like Oprah and Bill Gates.....there are more nut-jobs contacting them with outlandish claims and requests for money and/or publicity than there is wood work for them to seep out of.
Of COURSE Miracle-Mineral-Supplement will never be an FDA approved substance. It is also rational to assume that Miracle-Mineral-Supplement will never, in fact, garner widespread credibility, in fact, until there is data to support that credibilty. Where will this come from? Well, we can certainly contribute to this by going about our use of Miracle-Mineral-Supplement systematically and with documentation of its effects. The more lab work to support what this stuff does, the more all of this will be taken seriously. Period. Eventually, with enough supportive evidence, an Oprah or Bill Gates (or whoever) may just take the needed interest, focus the needed spotlight and or supply the needed funds. Until then, friends, we're all just amateur chemists, experimenting willy nilly on ourselves in a hope for better health and offering our subjective testimonials, which just isn't enough. One solid piece of science-based evidence is worth a hundred testimonials, to many. It's up to us, folks. I'm trying to do my part.
