Ha, should have read comments before posting mine.

Chris Cuomo's wife (yeah, the CNN journalist Chris Cuomo) has some snake oil healer doctor and posted that she cured her coronavirus with vitamin IVs (she had a doctor in a hazmat suit come and give her an IV of vitamins), and BLEACH BATHS! She puts quarter of a cup (A QUARTER OF A CUP) of bleach in her bathwater because it (insert some woowoo about metals and shit):

At the direction of my doctor, Dr. Linda Lancaster, who reminded me that this is an oxygen-depleting virus, she suggested I take a bath and add a tiny amount of sodium hypochlorite in the form of Clorox, as a type of homeopathic bath, and I mean a 1/4 cup of bleach which in an 80 gallon water tub is a ratio of 1:5000. Why?

To combat the radiation and metals in my system and oxygenate it. “We want to neutralize heavy metals because they slow up the electromagnetic frequency of our cells, which is our energy field, and we need a good flow of energy. Clorox is sodium chloride—which is technically salt. Clorox is made by introducing an electric current to water and sodium chloride (saline) creating sodium hypochlorite. There is no danger in doing this. It is a simple naturopathic treatment that has been used for over 75 years to oxygenate the cells,” says Dr. Lancaster. “Household bleach is not chlorine.”

Unsurprisingly, Clorox has come out with a statement saying that this is bullshit, and not to put Clorox in your bath. That nonsense about oxygenating cells? Surely it could only affect the cells of the outer layer of your epidermis, if any cells at all?

Will it kill her? Not likely. But what happens when she decides if 1/4 cup is great, a cup is better? What happens when she decides to bathe a kid, with more sensitive skin, in this? It won't kill her, but if she believes it will help, what else will she believe, and do?

And her husband is a journalist! Maybe this is why he went in the basement for his recovery!

Christina Cuomo's blog:https://thepuristonline.com...

Article with Clorox Stament:


The official Clorox website disagrees, stressing that their bleach "is NOT recommended for personal hygiene of any kind–consumers should always avoid direct skin and eye contacts with both undiluted bleach, as well as prolonged contact with the various bleach solutions we recommend for household cleaning and laundry ... using a bleach and water solution for bathing is not approved by the EPA and should not be done.”

Clorox freaking burns your skin! Someone (was it here, I think it was here!) was defending using bleach on the skin, saying she used it to cure poison ivy. But it's caustic, and it burns your skin! There are poison ivy treatments available.

I guess it just goes to show that a lot of people are susceptible to this kind of stuff...

"I can't believe I have to say this but:

US businesses, and ultimately consumers, pay the cost of tariffs on goods from other nations;

A nuclear bomb cannot stop a hurricane;

It's dangerous to look directly at an eclipse;

Kim Jong Un is a bad person;

Jair Belsonaro is a bad person;

Rodrigo Duterte is a bad person'

Russia is not our friend, and Vladimir Putin is a bad, bad man;

Rudy Giuliani is insane;

Gold plating every piece of shit you own does not impress people;

And how the freaking president supports fucking Nazis, after they risked their lives and watched their friends and comrades die, after they lived through the horror of liberating concentration camps, to then see a couple generations later that the the president of the United States' most loyal followers deny the holocaust, march carrying Nazi flags, and bring anti-semetic and anti-immigrant ideals into American policy.

Nope, the ones that are gone must be rolling over in their graves, and the ones that are left must be shaking their heads in unadulterated disbelief.

Wingnuts really are jonesin' for that Darwin Award, aren't they? This may work in the favor of the other 70+% of Americans whose brains weren't overrun by Holy-Roller-Hate-Termites.
