Re: DCA or MMS

Hi,

 

You are asking about DCA (Dichoracetate) and MMS (Miracle Mineral Solution).  I presume this is because you or someone you know has cancer and you want to know if it will be useful.  I am sorry but I am very limited to what I am able to say to you about these treatments which have not been recognised as useful cancer treatments.

 

Although DCA has been part of a very small clinical trial and laboratory trials.  These have shown that it may have a role in preventing the growth of blood vessels in a type of brain cancer called glioblastoma.  But there is still some concern about its safety and its usefulness in treating cancer.  We have some useful information on DCA here.

 

MMS is a bleach product that has been shown to cause harm.  The US, Canada and the UK have all issued serious health warnings about its use. The people who sell it on the internet claim it is a cure for many different diseases but I cannot find any information that tells me if it can be useful or safe for people with cancer.

 

Neither of these treatments is currently recommended in the UK as cancer treatments.  Therefore, if you or someone you know is considering taking these treatments they should discuss it with thier cancer specialist.
