7 Homeschooled Kids Taken From Parents Because Dad Had Unapproved Mineral Supplement

Brian Shilhavy is reporting that relatives of the Stanley family in Garland County Arkansas have reached out to to notify the public that the 7 homeschool children of Hal and Michelle Stanley were removed during the night by DHS and fully armed sheriffs this past week, simply because they reportedly found a supplement in the home that was not approved by the FDA.

The FDA v. MMS

The supplement in question is MMS (Miracle Mineral Solution). The FDA has been at war with this product and its distributors for several years. It seems like the Stanley family was unfortunate enough to get caught in the middle of that. In 2010, the FDA posted this consumer alert to

Miracle Mineral Solution (MMS): Product as consumed produces a potent bleach

[Posted 07/30/2010]

AUDIENCE: Consumers, Emergency Medicine

ISSUE: FDA warned consumers not to consume or use Miracle Mineral Solution, an oral liquid solution also known as “Miracle Mineral Supplement” or “MMS.” The product, when used as directed, produces an industrial bleach that can cause serious harm to health. The product instructs consumers to mix the 28 percent sodium chlorite solution with an acid such as citrus juice. This mixture produces chlorine dioxide, a potent bleach used for stripping textiles and industrial water treatment. High oral doses of this bleach, such as those recommended in the labeling, can cause nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and symptoms of severe dehydration.

BACKGROUND: MMS is distributed on Internet sites and online auctions by multiple independent distributors. MMS claims to treat multiple unrelated diseases, including HIV, hepatitis, the H1N1 flu virus, common colds, acne, cancer, and other conditions. The FDA is not aware of any research that MMS is effective in treating any of these conditions. MMS also poses a significant health risk to consumers who may choose to use this product for self-treatment instead of seeking FDA-approved treatments for these conditions.

RECOMMENDATIONS: Consumers who have MMS should stop using it immediately and throw it away. The FDA advises consumers who have experienced any negative side effects from MMS to consult a health care professional as soon as possible.

Healthcare professionals and patients are encouraged to report adverse events or side effects related to the use of this product to the FDA’s MedWatch Safety Information and Adverse Event Reporting Program:

  • Online:
  • Phone: 1-800-332-1088
  • Mail: return the postage-paid FDA form 3500, which may be downloaded from the MedWatch “Download Forms” page, to address on the pre-addressed form
  • Fax: 1-800-FDA-0178

Some in the alternative health field disagree with the FDA assessment. Here is a video plea from the originator of MMS:


Daniel Smith is facing up to 37 years in prison for his role in distributing MMS.

Is this product really dangerous to the consumer?

Or is this just another case of big pharma using its FDA enforcers to protect corporate profits?

Are the Stanleys Simply Collateral Damage in the FDA Fight Against MMS?

Regardless of the effectiveness of the MMS product, one has to wonder what right the police state feels it has to rip these 7 children from the Stanley home.

It does not appear that the Stanleys were distributing the product but merely attempting to keep it on hand for personal use.

Does anyone else see a problem here?

Arkansas Matters reports:

The substance in question is referred to as “MMS” or Miracle Mineral Solution. The FDA has weighed in on the substance citing serious health concerns reporting that it can turn into a potent bleach and cause nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea if taken.

The Stanley family however say it wasn’t grounds for the way they were treated during a search Monday (1/12) night that ended with their seven children taken away.

“Policemen here, policemen here,” Hal Stanley pointed, standing on his front porch. “Over here, on the side roads full of policemen.”

Stanley opened his door Monday afternoon to find a warrant waiting for him and his home surrounded by State and Garland County agents.

“It said we’re here to search your house,” Stanley explained.

Hal and his wife, Michelle, were kept outside for hours while officers searched the home with their seven children inside.

Hal said, “If they had asked me if I had MMS, I’d say yes and give it to them.”

Hal insists that only he takes the supplement and he uses MMS as a water purifier for his garden.

The garden is part of the Stanley’s way of life.

They avoid most contact with the government. The parents have home schooled their nine children, two of which have graduated and gone on to college.

The Stanley’s keep to themselves, are generally self-sustained and consider themselves “preppers.”

There you have it. Big Brother has just cracked down on more of those dangerous preppers that dare try to live without total reliance on government from cradle to grave. The only crime here appears to be that our government has grown way too invasive and this is further evidence that they aim to enslave us all.

Let this be our warning. These people did nothing wrong. They were not distributing this product, just using it. If it didn’t work then it’s no different than the closets full of products that we have all wasted money on throughout our lives. The FDA’s claims of harmful effects do not seem to be life threatening.

So what is really going on here?

This is about control and intimidation.

They could have seized the MMS and left.

Instead they took the children.

And people wonder why I can rarely say anything good about our government?

Tyrants have infiltrated all levels, all the way down to our local law enforcement.

Think about that.

The Mother, Michelle Stanley, has asked for our help:

The family has requested that the public call the following people:

  • State Police Headquarters: 501-767-8836
  • Kathy Finnegan 501-767-8550 (head investigator at State police department of our case.)
  • DHS Department 501-321-2583 on menu choose Dept. of Children and Family
  • Garland County Sheriff office Main Office Phone: (501) 622-3660 ask why did Mike Write make the decision to hold the Stanley kids?

Please keep this family in your thoughts and prayers, and please make some phone calls if you are able. There might be a day when you are the one that is seeking help.
