    Health warns of another dangerous drug

    The drug costs between $ 7 and $ 12.

    PANAMA. Eric Conte, director of Pharmacy and Drugs, Ministry of Health (MOH), gave the warning of another drug that causes serious damage to human health.

    This time is the Miracle Mineral Solution, a drug that is sold on the internet for cancer treatment, acne, colds, hepatitis, influenza A (H1N1), tuberculosis, malaria and AIDS.

    Conte said that the drug contains sodium chlorite, used as a bleaching agent for textiles and surface disinfectant and water treatment.

    The use of this medicine, which contains a strong oxidizing action, may cause abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, poisoning, renal failure and methemoglobinemia.

    According to the official, the sale of Miracle Mineral Solution is being made without proper authorization by many independent distributors who use color packaging, labels and different logos. The product cost is between $ 7.00 and $ 12.00.
