California limits vaccination refusal

Governor Jerry Brown has signed SB277
http://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/faces/billNavClient.xhtml?bill_id=201520160SB277&search_keywords=
into law, making California the third state in the nation to require immunizations of schoolchildren and children in child care centers without exemption for religious or personal beliefs. The other two states are Mississippi and West Virginia. California is also the first state to repeal a religious exemption from immunizations. Two months ago, Vermont repealed its "philosophical" exemption from immunizations and became the first state to repeal any personal belief exemption. However, it still permits religious exemptions. All states permit exemption on medical grounds. The American Medical Association recently expressed support for tighter limitations on immunization opt outs

Major MMS marketer curbed in Illinois

The Illinois Attorney General has obtained an agreement

http://www.casewatch.org/ag/il/rivera/illinois_settlement.pdf
under which Kerri Rivera is barred from promoting Miracle Mineral Supplement (MMS) as an autism cure in Illinois. MMS contains a 28% solution of sodium chlorite, which, when mixed with an acid such as citrus juice, produces chlorine dioxide (ClO2), a potent bleach used for stripping textiles and industrial water treatment. High oral doses, such as those recommended in MMS labeling, can cause nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and severe dehydration. Sodium chlorite is not legal to sell for human consumption, and legitimate suppliers of the chemical include a warning sheet stating that it can cause potentially fatal side effects if swallowed. Rivera, who has no recognized health-related credentials, claims that autism is caused by parasites and can be cured by MMS. She lives in Mexico but markets MMS worldwide and has promoted it repeatedly at AutismOne
http://scienceblogs.com/insolence/2015/05/19/autism-one-as-quacky-as-it-ever-was/
,the Chicago-based annual meeting that serves as autism quackery's premier showcase. Prior to this year's conference, more than 1,000 parents signed a petition

protesting Rivera's appearance and some even picketed the hotel where the meeting was scheduled to take place
http://skeptibeard.com/2015/05/26/kerri-rivera-mms/
After NBC5-TV aired a very critical report, a representative of the attorney general's office attended Rivera's talk and the AG's office demanded substantiation of her claims. Apparently unable to do this, she signed an assurance of voluntary compliance. Meanwhile, more than 5,000 people have signed a petition
https://www.change.org/p/amazon-remove-the-book-healing-the-symptoms-known-as-autism-from-your-sellers-list
asking Amazon to stop selling Rivera's book, Healing the Symptoms Known As Autism. Quackwatch has additional details about enforcement actions against MMS.

McCaskill continues to attack robocalls

U.S. Senators Claire McCaskill
http://www.mccaskill.senate.gov/media-center/news-releases/in-wake-of-agency-action-on-robocalls-mccaskill-renews-call-for-companies-to-offer-robocall-blocking-technology
[D-MO] and Susan Collins
http://www.collins.senate.gov/public/index.cfm/2015/6/ringing-off-the-hook-the-proliferation-of-unwanted-calls
[D-ME] have held another hearing and co-sponsored a bill intended to curb the nuisance of unwanted robocalls, most of which are scams. The hearing, held on June 10 by the Senate Select Committee on Aging, was opened with a vivid demonstration of spoofing by Collins and a staff member
http://www.aging.senate.gov/hearings/ringing-off-the-hook_examining-the-proliferation-of-unwanted-calls
(Caller ID spoofing
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caller_ID_spoofing
is the practice of causing the telephone network to indicate to the receiver of a call that the originator of the call is a station other than the true originating station.) Four witnesses then testified:

Linda Blase
http://www.stop-robocalls.org/hearings/mccaskill_2015/blase.pdf
a businesswoman from Dallas, Texas, described fraudulent calls she had received and said it was about time that phone companies take steps to block the unwanted calls.
Henning Schulzrinne
http://www.stop-robocalls.org/hearings/mccaskill_2015/schulzrinne.pdf
a professor at Columbia University, described the complex ways that robocalls can be routed, how technology that can be used to stop fake caller IDs, and how providers and recipients can control which calls get through.
Lois Greisman
http://www.stop-robocalls.org/hearings/mccaskill_2015/greisman.pdf
Associate Director of the FTC's Division of Marketing Practices, said that since 2009, the FTC has filed 37 cases against 121 companies and 90 individuals responsible for billions of illegal robocalls, but fraudsters who spoof their numbers and hide in other countries are making enforcement more difficult.
Joe Dandurand
http://www.stop-robocalls.org/hearings/mccaskill_2015/dandurand.pdf
a Deputy Attorney General from Missouri noted that his office received far more complaints about unwanted and illegal telemarketing calls than about any other issue.
The McCaskill/Collins Robocall and Call Spoofing Enforcement Improvements Act (S1540)
https://www.congress.gov/bill/114th-congress/senate-bill/1540
,would (a) require that providers of a spoofing service ensure that their services are not being used for illegal purposes, (b) make it easier for U.S. enforcement officials to go after violators operating outside the United States, and (c) increase penalties for violators.

Continuing request for help from Dr. Barrett

In June 2010, Doctor's Data, Inc. sued Dr. Barrett because it didn't like what he wrote about them on Quackwatch and in this newsletter. The events leading up to the suit are described at
http://www.quackwatch.org/14Legal/dd_suit.html
In November, 2011, about half of the allegations were dismissed, but discovery was permitted for more than a year. The rest of the suit is ripe for dismissal (the court is now considering another motion to dismiss), but the proceedings have cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. Even small donations, if sent by enough subscribers to this newsletter, will be very helpful. Contributions to reduce the cost can be made by mail or through
http://www.quackwatch.org/00AboutQuackwatch/donations.html

Enforcement Actions against Miracle Mineral Supplement (MMS) Marketers

Stephen Barrett, M.D.
MMS contains a 28% solution of sodium chlorite. which, when mixed with an acid such as citrus juice, produces chlorine dioxide (ClO2), a potent bleach used for stripping textiles and industrial water treatment. High oral doses, such as those recommended in MMS labeling, can cause nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and symptoms of severe dehydration. Sodium chlorite is not legal to sell for human consumption, and legitimate suppliers of the chemical include a warning sheet stating that it can cause potentially fatal side effects if swallowed. MMS's discovery is attributed to Jim Humble, a former "research engineer."         

In 2008, Health Canada ordered Subtle Energy Therapy of Edmonton, Canada to stop selling MMS because it did not have a drug identification number. In 2009 and 2010, the FDA ordered two MMS distributors to stop making illegal health claims for MMS [1,2]. Presumably as a result, manufacturers changed the product label to specify that MMS is sold for water purification. However, it has continued to be widely claimed to be effective against HIV, hepatitis, the H1N1 flu virus, common colds, acne, cancer, and many other conditions. The fourth edition of Humble's 2006 book, Breakthrough: The Miracle Mineral Solution of the 21st Century, which is filled with grandiose claims, is downloadable free of charge.

In 2010, the FDA and Health Canada warned that MMS is ineffective and dangerous [3,4]. In 2014, Health Canada seized MMS bottles and raw materials from buymms.biz [5]. In 2011, the British Advertising Standards Authority ordered Subtle Energy Therapy UK to stop making a long list of unsubstantiated claims for MMS [6]. In 2015, Health Canada seized an MMS product being injected at Art Nails Ltd., in Vancouver, B.C., which appeared to be unauthorized because it contained no labeling. (All products administered by injection in Canada must be authorized by Health Canada and must have approved labeling.)
Washington Marketers Convicted

In May 2015, Louis Daniel Smith, 45, of Spokane, Washington was convicted following a seven-day trial of conspiracy, smuggling, selling misbranded drugs, and defrauding the United States. Evidence at trial showed that from 2007 to 2011, Smith operated a business called Project GreenLife (PGL), which sold "Miracle Mineral Supplement" (MMS) through the Internet [7].

At the trial, the government presented evidence that Smith instructed consumers to combine MMS with citric acid to create chlorine dioxide, add water, and drink the resulting mixture to cure numerous illnesses. Chlorine dioxide is a potent agent used to bleach textiles, among other industrial applications. Chlorine dioxide is a severe respiratory and eye irritant that can cause nausea, diarrhea and dehydration, but instructions that Smith provided with his product, nausea, diarrhea and vomiting were signs that the miracle cure was working. The instructions also stated that despite a risk of possible brain damage, the product might still be appropriate for pregnant women and for infants who were seriously ill.

The evidence presented at trial also showed that Smith created phony "water purification" and "wastewater treatment" businesses in order to obtain sodium chlorite and ship his MMS without being detected by the FDA or the U.S. Customs and Border Protection. The government also presented evidence that Smith hid evidence from FDA inspectors and destroyed evidence while law enforcement agents were executing search warrants on his residence and business.

Before the trial, three of Smith's alleged co-conspirators, Chris Olson, Tammy Olson and Karis DeLong, Smith's wife, pleaded guilty to introducing misbranded drugs into interstate commerce. Chris Olson, along with alleged co-conspirators Matthew Darjanny and Joseph Lachnit, testified at trial that Smith was the leader of PGL.

The jury convicted Smith of one count of conspiracy to commit multiple crimes, three counts of introducing misbranded drugs into interstate commerce with intent to defraud or mislead, and one count of fraudulently smuggling merchandise into the United States. He faces a statutory maximum of 34 years in prison at his Sept. 9 sentencing.


Actions against Kerri Rivera

Kerri Rivera, who has no recognized health-related credentials, claims that autism is caused by parasites and can be cured by MMS. She lives in Mexico but markets MMS worldwide and has promoted it repeatedly at AutismOne, the Chicago-based annual meeting that serves as autism quackery's premier showcase. In 2015, Rivera's scheduled participation at the meeting triggered a cascade of criticism that culminated with action by the Illinois Attorney General.

Prior to AutismOne's 2015 conference, more than 1,000 parents signed a petition protesting Rivera's appearance [8] and some even picketed the hotel where the meeting was scheduled to take place. After NBC5-TV broadcast a very critical report [9], a representative of the attorney general's office attended Rivera's talk and the AG's office demanded substantiation of her claims [10]. Apparently unable to do this, she signed an assurance of voluntary compliance [11] under which she is barred in Illinois from (a) selling chlorine dioxide or similar substances to Illinois residents and (b) presenting at future Illinois conferences concerning the use of such substances to treat autism. Meanwhile, more than 5,000 people have signed a petition asking Amazon to stop selling Rivera's book, Healing the Symptoms Known As Autism [12].

Number 11 is no court sentence, but not far away from one. They should have banned Kerri Rivera for the whole USA. But since she does not live in the USA, what is going to happen? How will she evade? They should have put her into the darkest cell.
