The “self-declared archbishop” of a purpose church in Florida selling industrial bleach as a “healing miracle” for Covid-19 was arrested with his son in Colombia and faced with extradited to the US.
Video posted to Twitter by top Colombian prosecutor shows Mark Grenon and his son Joseph Grenon, dressed in blue jumpsuits and masks, being led away by armed police. The prosecutor̵7;s office said the couple was detained on suspicion of selling a “miraculous solution” that caused the deaths of seven US citizens.
The Grenons’ apprehension comes a month after the “archbishop” of the Genesis II “church”, as well as his three sons, were charged with trafficking in an unauthorized substance by federal authorities in Florida. used in medicine and can be life-threatening.
This substance, chlorine dioxide, is a strong bleaching agent used in textile manufacturing. Grenons markets it as “miracle mineral solution” or MMS which they say when drunk as a diluent that can cure most ailments including Covid, cancer, HIV / AIDS as well as autism.
In April, the Guardian revealed that Grenon had written to Donald Trump at the White House encouraging the US President to embrace the product in an attempt to contain the coronavirus. The letter stated that MMS “could remove the body of Covid-19”.
A few days later, Trump was on national television during a daily coronavirus press conference from the White House and came up with the idea of injecting an antiseptic into the body against Covid-19. “Is there a way we can do something, either by injection inward or almost cleaning?” he say.
The US Food and Drug Administration has banned Grenon and his sons from selling bleach. Last August, the FDA issued a public notice warning Americans not to take MMS or similar products.
“If you are taking MMS or other sodium chloride products, stop now,” the message said. “The FDA has received numerous reports that these products, sold online as ‘treatments’, have made consumers sick.”
When the Guardian asked Mark Grenon to respond to the FDA warning, he replied in an email: “You and your Guardian are puppets of the villains of this world like the Murdoch / Rothschild family! God open your eyes Picklehead Ed doesn’t study the truth or YOU ARE PAYMENTS! “
