The Food and Drug Administration is commonly known as FDA or USFDA. It is a department which works for health and human services in the United States of America. The department came into existence 113 years ago. Its primary purpose is to regulate and monitor food products, tobacco products, and pharmaceutical products to prevent serious health issues.
On Monday the administrative body announced that the general public must stop the consumption of chlorine dioxide solution which comes in the form of a drink. Often companies promote this drink, mentioning that it helps cure cancer, HIV/AIDS, and autism.
So-Called cancer-preventing products commonly termed as Miracle Mineral Solution or the MMS is suggested not to consume. The drink can cause life-threatening diseases to the human body. Therefore, the Food and Drug Administration or the FDA have not approved the drink.
