The Guardian reports:
The leader of the most prominent group in the US peddling potentially lethal industrial bleach as a “miracle cure” for coronavirus wrote to Donald Trump at the White House this week. In his letter, Mark Grenon told Trump that chlorine dioxide – a powerful bleach used in industrial processes such as textile manufacturing that can have fatal side-effects when drunk – is “a wonderful detox that can kill 99% of the pathogens in the body”. He added that it “can rid the body of Covid-19”.
Trump did not specify where the idea of using disinfectant as a possible remedy for Covid-19 came from, and the source for his notion remains obscure. But the Guardian has learned that peddlers of chlorine dioxide – industrial bleach – have been making direct approaches to the White House in recent days. Grenon styles himself as “archbishop” of Genesis II – a Florida-based outfit that claims to be a church but which in fact is the largest producer and distributor of chlorine dioxide bleach as a “miracle cure” in the US.
Holy crap. Read the rest. I first wrote about the “Church Of Bleach” last year when the FDA was forced to issue a warning. They next appeared on JMG when anti-LGBT activist and perennial GOP presidential candidate Alan Keyes endorsed them.
BREAKING: Turns out Mark Grenon, the leader of the group peddling bleach as a COVID ‘cure’ wrote to Trump this week, saying that chlorine dioxide (a powerful bleach that is deadly when drunk) “can rid the body of Covid-19”.
Oh yeah, and he distributes it.https://t.co/TIgUGEmbHb

Days before Trump made the dangerous suggestion that injecting "disinfectant" could cure #coronavirus (which he now claims was "sarcastic"), "archbishop" of bogus "church" that markets bleach as a cure for autism and cancer had begged Trump to "intervene." https://t.co/tH0xx3RFeK
