Seems that the major concern is if it is hit by a tsunami.  So what are the odds of that happening, it is hugging the Russian coastline.

After Chernobyl the entire world is concerned about Soviet/ Russian scientific nuclear practices.

FDA releases warning about 'miracle' solution claiming to cure autism, cancer: 'The same as drinking bleach'

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is warning people against buying or using “Miracle Mineral Solution” — a product being sold online as a remedy for cancer, autism, HIV/AIDS, hepatitis and other conditions — calling it a “dangerous” bleach which can have life-threatening effects.

In a press release on Monday, the FDA asked consumers to stop using the solution. The product contains 28% sodium chlorite in distilled water, which is meant to be combined with an acidic “activator” to create chlorine dioxide, which is a “powerful” bleaching agent.

“Miracle Mineral Solution and similar products are not FDA-approved, and ingesting these products is the same as drinking bleach,” FDA acting commissioner Ned Sharpless, M.D., said in a statement. “Consumers should not use these products, and parents should not give these products to their children for any reason.”

While the release says that the FDA has been aware of the product and has been warning consumers since 2010 not to use it, it recently received new reports “of people experiencing severe vomiting, severe diarrhea, life-threatening low blood pressure caused by dehydration and acute liver failure after drinking these products.

“The FDA is not aware of any scientific evidence supporting the safety or effectiveness of MMS products, despite claims that the solution is an antimicrobial, antiviral and antibacterial.”

However, despite the FDA’s warnings that there isn’t any evidence supporting the product, some organizations continue to push back.

The Genesis II Church of Health and Healing in Leavenworth, Wash. has continued selling the solution as “sacramental cleansing water.” In April, the non-religious church held a meeting to teach people how the bleach “could save your life, or the life of a loved one sent home to die,” The Guardian reported. The church asked for “donations” of $450 for an individual, or $800 for a couple in exchange for membership to their organization, and packages of the bleach.

Bishop Mark Grenon, a co-founder of the The Genesis II Church of Health and Healing, tells Yahoo Lifestyle that the group doesn’t trust the FDA to determine what is appropriate for people to consume.

“We look at the FDA as a pay to play approving board for companies and not as an agency looking out for the health of people,” Grenon says.

He also says that the FDA has previously approved the use of chlorine dioxide in other products, and the chemical has widespread use in other day-to-day situations.

“Meats are sprayed with it before packaging. Cans are cleanse with it before food is put in,” the bishop says. “Hospitals and gyms use it to kill MRSA and other bacteri, fungi and viruses.”

Wish they stop referring to such as churches.  These people are nothing but modern snake oil salesmen.

Isn't that what most churches do as well?  Some are subtler but it is still the great con.

Just watched "Man-Eating Super Squid: Monster Invasion" on Animal Planet.  The Humboldt Squid is spreading along the west coast like wildfire.  They attack in packs and are vicious, unrelenting.

Looking at this makes me laugh. Squid is very popular in France and they sell it in all the supermarkets. The squid are cute and tiny; you put them on your salads like shrimp. They taste very good.

But calamari is even sold at Kroger's. Do you like it? The first time I saw in France I actually thought they were onion rings. Boy was I surprised!

I have ate the small California squid before aka calamari. Came frozen.
