"And the 28% hazardous chemical shipping a few ounces of it is just not a subject I give a rats about. It is only a diversion because there is nothing else to talk about. Anyway who is raising all the "hazardous materials" shipping questions about all the mercury laden compact florescent light bulbs everyone is using these days if there is all this concern about hazardous goods? Break one of those over a carpeted floor..and "legally" you are supposed to call in a "hazmat" cleanup crew and spend thousands of dollars eliminating the mercury from the area."
Actually, there is an endless amount to discuss about Humble and his scam. As far as the Science goes, however, it's pretty straightforward, which is why you see the same thing over and over. There is little known about how this stuff works in the body and as long as people want to "believe" it works, it will help some people. Also, as Catlin mentioned, many people claim to have diseases they don't, either purposefully or not, and so claims of health improvement without proof, i.e. lab results, aren't very compelling.
As far as choosing not to worry about the shipping and toxicity of mms, it is entirely up to each of us. Personally, I don't want somebody hurt because that "few ounces" of the miracle happen to get treated in a way that causes an explosion or fire. Are you under the impression it takes a few liters to be dangerous?
The strange justification of using the example of florescent light bulbs to make it somehow okay to ship a substance that has been deemed hazardous by the U.S. Gov't (I know, it's a conspiracy, spare us all) is just incomprehensible. What on earth does one have to do with the other? Mercury is certainly poisonousness, but it doesn't typically blow up when it's too hot or jolted too much and I don't add extra mercury in my diet, unfortunetly there's already too much.
Since the person who wrote this state above is so concerned about those florescent bulbs, I sure hope they dispose of them properly, at you county's hazmat site. Hopefully, that's where that mms goes too.
Someone also mentioned that it had "worked too long" for the plecebo effect to explain it's viability. I'm not sure how time would necessarily affect the placebo effect, it may or may not. By definition, the placebo effect works. Our minds are incredibly powerful.
