Amazon has pulled two “autism cure” books from its online marketplace, including one that suggests ingesting and bathing in a potentially toxic form of bleach. Amazon confirmed the books, Healing the Symptoms Known as Autism and Fight Autism and Win, are no longer being sold. The company didn’t say why they had been removed, but it comes after a Wired report criticized Amazon for offering pseudoscientific books that recommend dangerous methods for “reversing” autism. NBC News reports Healing the Symptoms Known as Autism praised the healing power of chlorine dioxide, a form of bleach that the Food and Drug Administration warns can cause “severe nausea, vomiting, and life-threatening low blood pressure from dehydration.” Fight Autism and Win tells parents that chelation—an unproven treatment that involves medicating a child with an antidote for mercury poisoning—can also cure autism.

What gets me, is why would anyone actually buy into such harmful nonsense?

Not only that, why would anyone want their child cured from being austic?

I get some cases are so extreme that they find it difficult to socialize, but in the main austic children are of a high IQ.

Books like this are a public health risk

I quite agree. I’m all for looking into alternative remedies, like herbs for example, but bleach? Shocked

It works on chiggers and poison ivy. Doctors don't recommend it, but lots of folks swear by it.

Not sure if you have either in the UK. Cool
