The Dutch Food and Consumer Product Safety Authority (NVWA) warned in March 2018 about the use of Miracle Mineral Supplement (MMS). The intake of the mixture of sodium chlorite, citric acid and water, which is advertised on the internet as a miracle medicine for all kinds of serious diseases such as cancer, malaria and AIDS, can, if taken regularly, lead to acute and chronic health risks, such as abdominal pain, severe fatigue, respiratory problems, burns in the gastrointestinal system and failure of the kidneys and liver. The Inspector General asked the Minister to take action against Internet commerce.
A video that appeared this week [link below] shows how the Amsterdam nature healer Stephen Oduro visits an orphanage in Ghana at the end of 2018 and prepares and distributes MMS to the children. The leader of the home is instructed to repeat the treatment every hour.
Oduro assures that the health of the children, including a number of carriers of the AIDS virus, must be greatly improved within a few weeks. With the help of a bottle, he administers the remedy by hand to a baby with a water head. He explains that his visit is part of a campaign to promote the medicine in Ghana.

where he prepares and provides MMS to the children.
In Ghana Oduro presents himself as Barima Asamoah Kofi the Fourth, the name he got in 2002 at his coronation to one of the many kings in the country. In Amsterdam Oduro, now 66 years old, was in that period active as a health worker at the GGD [Municipal Health Service], a job he combined with a seat in the district council in Southeast for the PvdA [Labor Party].
In an interview from that time he told about his big dream: traveling through his native country with a written-off methadone bus from the GGD to provide the population with good health information. Anno 2018 Oduro has another title: bishop for the Ghanaian establishment of the Genesis 2 Church of Health and Healing, an American denomination with branches all over the world. It was founder Jim Humble who launched Miracle Mineral Supplement as a medicine. In 1996, in search of gold in the jungle of South America, Humble would have cured two employees of malaria within hours by administering them a mixture of water, sodium chlorite and citric acid.
Back in the United States Humble founded a churchlike society, with the miracle water as a sacrament. With the help of MMS, the sick world can be made healthy in a second genesis, according to the church, which recommends the solution not only as a medicine against almost all conceivable diseases and disorders, but also as an alternative to vaccinations.
"Oduro assures that the orphans, some with AIDS, will be much healthier after a few weeks."
On the website of the Society dozens of people testify of a miraculous healing. In Germany, Canada, the USA, the United Kingdom and Australia official warnings were issued about its use. Oduro came into contact with the church two years ago; by then he had a natural medicine practice in the Southeast of Amsterdam. He himself also took the miracle water and, according to a testimony on the internet, got rid of his back pain and a persistent snoring problem.
After following the compulsory courses he was appointed bishop of health in Ghana in March 2018. On the international website of the church Oduro is mentioned as one of the official suppliers of MMS.
In another video Oduro tells that he also uses the drug in his work as a traditional healer in his hometown Amsterdam. With the help of MMS he would have healed a man here from prostate problems.
"With the help of MMS Oduro would have cured a man in Amsterdam of prostate problems."
Since November, the church has also had a branch in Southeast Amsterdam, in the collective building for diverse churches De Kandelaar on the Bijlmerdreef. Whether MMS is used during religious gatherings is unclear, but the name Health Restoration Center seems to indicate this.
There is another track leading to MMS. According to the registration in the Trade Register, the church's head office in Southeast is at the address of Oduro's practice. He is not a bishop for the church in his home town; according to the website of the denomination, this is a certain bishop Steven.
This turns out to be Steven Soeten, not living in the Bijlmer, but in Belt Schutsloot in Overijssel. Just like Oduro, Soeten is a nature healer and also owns Natufarm, a European internet shop in MMS.
Oduro says he doesn't know Soeten personally. In response to questions about his involvement in the distribution of MMS, he initially sent a promotional video and documentation. After reading the current article he says he is convinced of the beneficial effect of the product.
"I have been drinking it myself for six years. Every morning I take a sip. I no longer need toothpaste. Other people may claim that it is toxic, but that's not my experience. Why should I poison myself?" About the orphans in Ghana, Oduro says that the church has protocols for the use of MMS by children and animals.

What is MMS?
Miracle Mineral Supplement, also traded as Miracle Mineral Solution or Master Mineral Solution, is traded in liquid form, in tablets and as a spray. The product consists of a part sodium chlorite and a part citric acid or hydrochloric acid that is dripped in water.
The result is chlorine dioxide, which is used, among other things, in the production of bleach. According to internet vendors, MMS enables the body to destroy harmful substances. Sodium chlorite is only allowed in the Netherlands as a disinfectant. It warns that the product may not come into contact with food, drinks or raw materials for those.
"Worldwide prohibition needed"
The practices of the Genesis 2 Church in Ghana have been uncovered by the Irish activist Fiona O'Leary, who has been campaigning against the use of MMS for six years. "It has been scientifically established that it is a toxic bleaching agent unfit for human consumption. In Ireland, it is prohibited by law to offer MMS as a medicine. That must be done worldwide."
The images of the orphanage in Ghana make O'Leary furious. "These are vulnerable children who are used as guinea pigs. These children are in serious danger. I call on the authorities in the Netherlands and Ghana to put an end to this dangerous form of quackery."
