Years ago, I posted an article about the dangers of the awful MMS “cure” that has been peddled by the Genesis II “church”. The cult has been peddling a book called “Healing Autism” for years on Amazon, and we autistics have been clamoring for them to remove the book from their online catalog. Now today, it finally has happened!
Healing Autism is not based on scientific research. It is not advocating anything that would help an autistic child. Instead, it tells parents to administer MMS, a chemical that is similar to bleach, as an enema. It does NOT cure autism. Read this article for more information.
Not only has this book been removed, but so has Jenny McCarthy’s book on “healing” autism as well. McCarthy is not a scientist. She is an anti-vaccine nutjob who founded Generation Rescue, an organization similar to Autism Speaks. Both organizations claim that vaccines cause autism, despite a multitude of research to the contrary. Why has this book been removed as well? Not only because advocates have protested, but also because these phony claims have caused measles outbreaks to resurface. Before this, we thought measles and mumps were a thing of the past. But phony research is endangering children. Some kids have shown their parents that they are actually smarter than their own parents, though.
This is a victory for autism advocacy everywhere. We have saved lives with our actions. Now all we have to do is get the church the justice they so richly deserve.
