Icewolf, never thought of it that way, that makes sense. But, is there NO limitation to that? I mean what if a medical board found out a pediatrician had been convicted of kiddy fiddling in another country, they still can't do anything? That's purely a hypothetical.
I didn't really want to discuss it openly because these forums are google searchable, but what the hell.
It's got to do with that Jim Humble guy, the MMS "bleachgate" thing.. I've actually been investigating MMS for over 2 years now, since before Rhys Morgan "exposed" it. Well, maybe it has waned a bit in the public arena, but it's far from gone away. Jim Humble has a slick new website and there is still a strong internet presence of supporters.
Ok, admittedly they're mostly kooks, which is fine, I accept it will probably never go away completely, and as long as it's just the conspiracy theory nut jobs and cranks drinking the bleach, that's fine. Mission accomplished.
BUT, there is another aspect to it which is not fine. http://www.m-end.org/
Is a charity affiliated with the seemingly legitimate "Lutheran Church Charities" organization. They claim to be curing people of malaria for the last 5 years using, you guessed it, MMS. They don't call it MMS and don't mention Jim Humble, but one of the founders is none other then Thomas Hesselink MD: Jim Humble's wingman when it comes to "mms research", Hesselink is credited as a contributing author of Jim's first book and he has a big website of Chlorine dioxide "research" (read:hog wash) that Jim Humble frequently cites. Jim Humble and MMS's finger prints are all over the M-End site, only very thinly veiled.
One of the other directors is a Susan Busse MD, another registerd doctor. It looks like she is the one who has actually travelled to Africa and possibly been involved with legitimate aid efforts which are mixed in, to make the matter really convincing or confusing, depending on which way you look at it. There are video testimonials on that site which I find really disturbing once you realize what's really going on.
I haven't found whether Hesselink him self has travelled to Africa.
There are a couple of very lame press relseases talking about how great their progress is going, but of course, no actual publshed results or aything has come of it.
So far, over the past year I have written a letter to the heads of the mother organization "Lutheran Church Charities". I have written to the United Nations Foundation which seems to also be involved somehow (their banner is on the LCC website). I've written to the FBI who I was told investigate charity fraud. I've even written to raising malawi and the gates foudation asking if they could put their clout behind shutting down this scam operation. So far, nada. Not a single reply from anyone.
I'm in the process of writing an open letter to the LCC which i'm going to post on my blog. I've been tryoing to stay anonymous during this time, but I might need to "come out of the closet" if I want to push this further..
Anyone got any other ideas?
