Is this one of the worst ‘Florida Man’ stories? These men are facing federal charges of marketing a fake cure which could be fatal.

A man and his three sons created their “Miracle Mineral Solution”, claiming that it would cure Covid-19. The chemicals they used, when taken orally, as customers were told to do, became a powerful bleach that is for industrial uses. They sold the product nationwide through a “non-religious” church they created, Genesis II Church of Health and Healing, in an effort to avoid government regulation.

“as a miracle cure-all for dozens of other serious diseases and disorders, including cancer, Alzheimer’s, autism, multiple sclerosis, and HIV/AIDS, even though the FDA had not approved MMS for any use.”
