WHAT’S BEING CLAIMED:
- The founder of the Global Healing ministry, Robert Baldwin, has been promoting a “miracle cure” in Uganda that turns out to be a toxic industrial bleach.
- Baldwin stated that he worked in Uganda because it is a poor country with lax regulations.
- The toxic substance has since been consumed by 50,000 people in Uganda.
A pastor from New Jersey has been promoting industrial bleach as “healing water” to thousands of people in Uganda, claiming that it can cure all diseases.
The Guardian reported that the founder of the Global Healing ministry, Robert Baldwin, promoted the “miracle cure” in Uganda and called it the Miracle Mineral Solution, or MMS. He went on to claim that it could cure everything, including HIV/AIDS, malaria, cancer, and diabetes.
But the mixture is actually chlorine dioxide — a toxic industrial bleach.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued a warning that heavy consumption can cause vomiting and dehydration. Promotional videos were accordingly shut down by YouTube.
The 52-year-old pastor has reportedly been moving bulk shipments of the concoction from China to Uganda. As stated in The Guardian’s report, the toxic substance has since been consumed by 50,000 people in Uganda — including infants less than two years old.
The Guardian had obtained a phone call in which Baldwin stated how he started calling the liquid “healing water” instead of MMS to “protect” himself because “Facebook has algorithms that can recognize ‘MMS’.”
He went on to explain that “America and Europe have much stricter laws so you are not as free to treat people because it is so controlled by the FDA. That’s why I work in developing countries.” He said that Uganda is a poor country with lax regulations.
When The Guardian reached to Baldwin for his comment, he claimed, “We use natural healing therapies to help people – that’s something Christians do.”
He then stated, “I don’t think it’s a good idea to be talking to the media right now.”
Baldwin has since closed down his website and deactivated his social media accounts following the report’s publication over the weekend.
