Parents are poisoning their children with bleach to ‘cure’ autism. These moms are trying to stop it.
“It’s like a cult,” Amanda Seigler, a mother of six in Florida, said of Facebook groups promoting dangerous faux “cures” for autism. One such “treatment” is chlorine dioxide, or industrial bleach.
Seigler is one of a handful of parents reporting these groups and trying to shut them down. But for every one that’s removed, new groups continue to spring up with a following of parents desperate for a “cure.”
