Firstly, people of Chicago! I hope you feel angry this weekend!
Kerri Rivera, who promotes the use of the bleaching agent chlorine dioxide orally, topically and by enema, is speaking on May 23, 2015 from 3-4 PM at the Autism One conference outside of Chicago at the Loews Chicago O'Hare Hotel. If you would like to join the protest, please message me or comment here. More details to follow regarding time and exact location.This protest is being set up by Mommy, PhD, read a post about hostility towards scientists over at Skepchick.
Need some motivation? Watch this report.
Rivera is actually from Chicago, but she moved down to Mexico to continue her treatment of autism. The treatment itself comes from Jim Humble, who appears to be a lunatic.
Humble, who quit the Church of Scientology to form the Genesis II Church of Health & Healing, claims in online videos to be a billion-year-old god from the Andromeda galaxy.But Rivera has distanced herself from Humble and claims the sodium chlorite solution cured her son of autism when he was three.
He promotes the solution as a miracle cure for cancer, AIDS, malaria, and possibly Ebola – but he also claims he can heal by touch.
Rivera — who describes herself as a biomedical consultant and certified homeopath — claims that autism is caused by yeast, parasites, viruses, and vaccines that can be flushed from the body through strict dietary guidelines and bleach enemas.I don't know what else to say about this. There is ZERO evidence this actually works.
“We don’t have a single cause of autism that is linked to a virus or a type of germ or parasite,” said Dr. Karan Radwan, of the University of Chicago. “I feel terrified about a procedure like this which could harm many kids.”Can someone please think of the children? This is child abuse.
