I just wrote about Holocaust denial books that are available on Amazon, right? Of course there are even more books on the site that have no business seeing the light of day. This time I’m talking about books that claim to “cure” illnesses and ailments.
Autism appears to be written about quite a bit. Books utilizing what’s called MMS claim to be able to cure autism, among others. Except there is nothing scientific about the so-called treatment. And it’s been linked to at least one death in recent years.
Y’all know I don’t have kids. I can only imagine how difficult it might be to have a child with any kind of developmental deficiency. The medical bills and lost wages can quickly add up. So a part of me understands why someone would go to books in search of a cure for something inflicting their family.
With that being said, this isn’t the way to accomplish anything. Doctors and nurses can point you to the right literature. And there’s always the option of adoption if the diagnosis is known beforehand. No one is responsible for making another family whole, but there are so many people who would be excellent parents and would appropriately care for a child with special needs. No one should be subject to bogus treatments that only endanger rather than treat.
Autism, for example, doesn’t need to be cured. If these parents or people buying these bogus books had ever met someone with autism, then they’d know that.

Anyone claiming they can cure any spectrum of austism are not only frauds but to be avoided at all costs! Utilizing diets and other resources provided through your healthcare to assist is fantastic, but bogus claims like that are terrifying.
Like I said, there is at least one death linked to this crap multiple people are pushing. Probably more.
I also want to appluad you on the comment that it doesn’t need to be cured. These individuals just need what we all do, love and support. So thank you 😊
They’re worthy of life just like you and I. The difference is they don’t take all things for granted like most people do. It’s an overgeneralization, but not really far from the truth in my eyes.
It is a disorder that is present in my life on a personal level that I won’t mention here, so I know so very well how gifted and special each individual is. What some view as an illness others know is any but.
