Spokane, WA – In
2007, when Daniel Smith became aware of an inexpensive and natural substance
to have cured thousands of cases of Malaria in
Africa, he immediately left his career in technology in hopes to make a difference
in the human health experience. Little did he know, four years later, it
would lead to a band of armed thugs raiding his home and terrorizing his
On June 29, 2011, armed
agents of the Food and Drug Administration raided Smith’s home in Spokane Washington, as well as two Spokane companies
that bottled and shipped products for Smith’s association. According
to Smith, “They completely wiped us out in a single day. They took
everything… computers, phones, records, product, equipment, and seized
every penny from every bank account - it was a calculated operation.”
Smith had seen enough
to know he was fighting a well organized, illegally sanctioned crime syndicate,
and began turning over every rock looking for
a remedy. Sources eventually led him to the US~Observer. Emails began pouring
in, literally from every corner of the world - hundreds of supporters genuinely
outraged, imploring us on Smith’s behalf to investigate his case.
“It’s completely outrageous and unconstitutional,” says
Edward Snook of the U.S. Observer, “for armed agents to force their
way into a peaceful family’s home SWAT-style and steal whatever they
Daniel Smith, a law abiding
family man with four children, is now threatened with years in prison.
Smith’s alleged crime? He’s
not altogether sure since he's never spoken to an FDA agent or received
from the agency in his life.
According to court documents,
the FDA is attempting to indict Smith in front of a Spokane federal Grand
Jury, for having made available a perfectly lawful
and relatively innocuous water purification product; one that’s been
available for over half a century and gained international grassroots attention
in the alternative health movement over the last five years.
For four of those years,
Smith oversaw an online business that eventually became a Private Membership
Association called “Project GreenLife”,
which made dozens of specialty health-related products available to private
members in the private domain. One of those products was “MMS”,
or “Master Mineral Solution,” comprised of sodium chlorite in
distilled water. Sodium chlorite (not to be mistaken for sodium chloride
or common table salt) is a natural, non-synthetic, non-patentable compound
that has been used in water purification throughout the USA for nearly eighty
"Generally Recognized as Safe" by the FDA as an indirect food
substance, sodium chlorite is not illegal to buy, sell, import, export, or
possess. This is in spite of claims made by FDA agents that Smith “smuggled” sodium
chlorite from Canada; a claim so ludicrous, Smith says, it can only have
been made to shock Magistrate Imbrogno into granting a hundred warrants,
in order to shut them down in a single day.
“They even stole personal-use bottles of sodium chlorite and citric
acid from my bathrooms and kitchen pantry, as if they were illegal substances,” Smith
“That’s what they do”, says Snook, “they
lie, cheat and steal, and use the courts to protect their crooked backsides.”
So what's the FDA’s beef with Smith? According
to court documents, sodium chlorite may be mixed with citric acid in the
privacy of one's home
to create an entirely different and equally lawful substance known as chlorine
dioxide (not to be mistaken for household chlorine bleach or elemental chlorine
gas). Sources suggest that chlorine dioxide may be one of the safest and
most effective pathogen-killers known to mankind.
In his book "The Master Mineral Solution of the Third Millennium",
author James Humble discusses MMS and chlorine dioxide's various internal
and external applications, including protocols for the destruction of pathogens
associated with symptoms identified as Malaria, Hepatitis, Lyme disease and
Numerous clinical studies show the relative safety of chlorine dioxide,
contrary to recent FDA propaganda. The US~Observer has received hundreds
of testimonials and affidavits, praising the health-restorative attributes
of MMS and chlorine dioxide.
Chlorine dioxide is used
by more savvy municipal water treatment facilities because it’s safer and more effective than chlorine. According
to U.S. Patent No. 4,944,920, chlorine dioxide may be used to safely purify
blood of Hepatitis C and HIV prior to transfusion. Even more astonishing,
U.S. Patent No. 6,086,922 reveals clinical data from 1993 demonstrating HIV
may be combated with chlorine dioxide in vivo without any adverse effects.
Chlorine dioxide is also used in alternative toothpastes and mouth rinses.
“It stands to reason,” says Smith, “people might use their
homemade chlorine dioxide in numerous creative ways - ways that might, for
example, make people less reliant on a trillion-dollar sickness industry.” Smith
believes the FDA is just another government agency masquerading as a public
servant - a private police force, enforcing private food and drug interests
lobbied into legislation by the likes of Monsanto and “Big Pharma”.
Court documents assert
the FDA’s position that chlorine dioxide is
merely a “potent oxidizing bleach,” citing four adverse reports
of diarrhea and nausea over the last five years – reports solicited
by the FDA. This is a far cry from the thousands of adverse reactions reported
every year by users of drugs approved by the agency. Tens of thousands died
from the use of the FDA approved drug, Vioxx, alone. There isn’t enough
room in this paper to expose the extent of the agency’s reported malfeasance.
with actual MMS protocols are keen to say sodium chlorite or chlorine dioxide
might “burn the esophagus”,
but Smith says not to his knowledge in five years and hundreds of thousands
of users has
anyone reported such a thing. When used properly, the self-manufactured chlorine
dioxide is so diluted in juice or water, it would be essentially impossible.
US~Observer research verifies this claim.
Smith cites dozens of in-home uses, from removing mold and mildew from air
ducts, basements, bathrooms, refrigerators, and cars. It can be used to disinfect
meat and vegetables, countertops, and eradicate odors. People bathe with
it, Smith says, and his family uses it in a vaporizer to keep air-borne pathogens
Smith’s former attorney Nancy Lord has pointed
out, Project GreenLife never actually sold chlorine dioxide. “If the
only therapeutic element alleged, is for something that never enters commerce,
the federal government can pound sand,” says Snook. “No commerce
equals no jurisdiction – and no crime. Not-to-mention the fact the
FDA has absolutely no constitutional right whatsoever to even exist.”
According to Smith, sodium chlorite has no known therapeutic value of itself.
It cannot therefore be a drug, regardless of how the FDA might pitch a jury,
and neither sodium chlorite nor chlorine dioxide are illegal substances.
By attempting to indict
and convict Smith, the FDA appears to be seeking a court’s ruling that would establish sodium chlorite as a “new
drug” - suddenly subject to FDA oversight after almost a century of
availability on the open market. If it were in fact now a “drug”,
they should prepare to admit to drugging the public through water treatment
A cursory online review
shows MMS or sodium chlorite is still widely available through dozens of
including Amazon and EBay. “It appears no
other manufacturers are being harassed yet,” Snook states, “which
is evidence Smith’s prosecution is ‘selective’… he
was probably the biggest fish in the pond.”
If the government is
successful in the prosecution of Daniel Smith’s
case, it could set precedence for the FDA to raid every MMS and sodium
chlorite reseller in the USA, and bolster similar agency action worldwide.
The FDA’s website states that warning letters are its primary method
of bringing a company “into compliance”, and though the agency
has verifiably sent thousands of warning letters to companies in the last
five years, Smith says he’s never received one. This is in spite of
Smith contacting the agency in 2010, asking if they had any legal, valid
objection to what he was doing.
Rather than answering
Smith’s letters, the FDA launched a bogus year-long
investigation, going through Smith’s garbage, placing a warrantless
GPS tracking device on his vehicle, and crafting numerous skillfully written
warrant-applications aimed at one single orchestrated event - to seize all
of Smith’s resources. This is our tax dollars at work. It was obvious
they cared more about teaching Smith a lesson than protecting the public.
Why else would the FDA allow Smith to operate for an entire year under the
belief they had no objection if they were genuinely concerned about the public’s
use of MMS?
“They didn’t need to engage in any investigation”, Smith
stated. “I had already told them exactly what I was doing. They could
have just responded and saved everyone a lot of heartache.” Any reasonable
man could see Smith had no intention to break any law. These wolves came
It’s been a year since the raids. In that time, two Grand Juries have
been convened without an indictment. The government tried to indict Smith
for “Smuggling” in the first jury, according to an affidavit
by Grand Jury witness Matthew Darjany, business owner of the fulfillment
company that was also raided. In their second attempt, they went after “Conspiracy
to Defraud the United States” on the theory that Smith’s lawful
acquisition of sodium chlorite from Canada (rather than the USA), somehow
defrauded the government.
“We don’t know what they’ll invent next,” says Snook, “we
only know they’re desperate to keep the world from learning about MMS.”
The prosecutor, Christopher
E. Parisi, who flew in from Washington, D.C., told Smith’s prior attorney Nancy Lord, if Smith didn’t accept
a pre-indictment plea-bargain, they would string him up for postal fraud,
wire fraud, money laundering, and they were “pretty sure some IRS charges”.
“That’s how they do it,” says Snook. “They try to
scare their targets into offering themselves up as felons in exchange for
less time, so the government won’t have to prove their case at trial.
They stack false charges to make the innocent person feel grateful in accepting
a plea-bargain in order to spend only a couple years in prison as opposed
to ten, twenty, or even thirty.”
Daniel Smith has stated,
if he did end up spending the rest of his life in prison, he’d do so with a clean conscience, knowing a lot of people’s
lives have been saved - and are still being saved - through MMS.
