Americans are ever on the lookout for products calling themselves natural remedies, miracle cures and so on. A recent product, marketed under the brand name Miracle Mineral Solution or Miracle Mineral Supplement, has not been approved by the FDA, and it now appears that the product can turn into a bleach-like substance that has apparently caused serious and possibly life-threatening illness in those who have taken it. This has resulted in dangerous products designations, and people in Tennessee should exercise caution regarding them.
When the FDA approves an item for human consumption, the agency goes through a rigorous process to help ensure that the product is safe. The instructions for use of the mineral solution direct the consumer to mix the liquid with a citric acid. Popular sources of citric acid are found in lemons and limes. When citric acid is mixed the mineral solution, it can create chlorine dioxide, which is a powerful bleaching agent.
Recent reports of adverse events to the FDA have included occurrences of vomiting, diarrhea, blood pressure issues and liver damage following the ingestion of the products. There appears to be no scientific evidence supporting the claims of the benefits of Miracle Mineral Solution. These include claims that it is a remedy for treating numerous ailments, including cancer, autism and hepatitis to name a few.
Maintaining one's health is one of the most important things a person can do. Exercise and a healthy diet remain one of the best avenues to preserve good health. Caution should be exercised when taking medicinal substances not prescribed by a physician. A person in Tennessee who may have experienced adverse side effects after taking Miracle Mineral Solution may wish to seek the advice of an experienced personal injury attorney to investigate if a dangerous products civil suit is a viable option.
