13. Snake Oil Salesman, Part 2 – MMS and Kerri Rivera

Last time on Pretend Radio I spoke with a group of women who drink MMS, a bleach-type chemical. They claim cures everything from cancer to depression.

The Food and Drug Administration issued this warning:

Miracle Mineral Supplement, often referred to as Miracle Mineral Solution, Master Mineral Solution, MMS or the CD protocol, is a toxic solution of 28% sodium chlorite in distilled water. The product contains essentially the same ingredient as industrial-strength bleach before “activation” with a food-grade acid. 

But, this is a free country. You want to drink bleach? Go ahead. However, I soon found out that parents are forcefully giving enemas to kids with autism. As a result, children are shedding their intestinal tract lining.

In this episode, I interview Kerri Rivera, the woman leading this movement, and find out why she thinks this chlorine dioxide treatment is the cure for autism.

I started tracking down Kerri Rivera. My research led me to Chicago where she lived for many years. Then, I hit a dead end. You see, back in 2015 Kerri Rivera was served with a subpoena by the Illinois Attorney General demanding her to show proof that her treatment cures autism. Of course she couldn’t prove that her treatment worked. So, Kerri Rivera voluntarily signed an agreement stating that she will no longer sell or promote any products. Soon after, she skipped town and fled to Mexico.

I kept searching for her but couldn’t find any leads. That is until one night, while chatting with a group of women who take MMS on Facebook. One of the women offered to put me in touch with the infamous chlorine dioxide queen. And a few days later, my phone rang. It was Kerri Rivera.


“There’s not another soul on this planet curing autism.” – Kerri Rivera
