WEST Cork mum and anti-'MMS autism cure' campaigner Fiona O'Leary was interviewed on the BBC today.

The Drimoleague-based activist has been campaigning against the 'miracle cure' marketed online, and in the US and many other countries, as being able to rid children of the 'disease' of autism.

Speaking to the BBC's Victoria Derbyshire, Ms O'Leary pointed out that the mixture involved is nothing more than bleach and can cause serious damage to young children.

Parents are told to mix two chemicals, and dilute them, before administering them to children to 'cure' them of their autism.

Fiona, who is a parent of young autistic children, points out that this treatment, as well as being dangerous to their health, is highly offensive to people with autism, as autism is not a 'disease'.

In a secretly filmed video, a BBC reporter is shown being offered the chemicals and being told they can 'purge' people of a number of 'diseases' including autism, HIV and even Alzheimer's.

Fiona is hoping to convince governments across the world to make the sales, promotion, distribution and administering of this chemical a criminal offence.

The Irish authorities have already taken the issue seriously, and are currently investigating a number of parents believed to be administering the chemical to their children.
