There are media reports today about a product marketed online as "Miracle Mineral Solution" causing illness.
The Department of Health advises that this product is potentially poisonous. A spokesman for the Department said 'this isn't like drinking bleach, it literally is drinking bleach'.
The producer of this product makes spurious claims. This product is dangerous to ingest. The Department of Health is very concerned about Victorians purchasing and using the product and strongly recommends that they avoid it.
Anyone with concerns should consult their GP or call the Poisons Information Line on 13 11 26
