British Man Charged With Poisoning Ugandans With 'Miracle Cure'

A British former clairvoyant and three Ugandans have been charged with distributing a liquid called Miracle Mineral Solution (MMS) to poor Ugandans, including infants as young as 14 months old, which they claimed cured HIV, malaria and cancer. The liquid used in water treatment and bleaching has no known health benefit and can be extremely dangerous.
