So, since the last post on Bleachgate, a number of exciting developments have happened…
Firstly, I’ve been invited to speak at a couple of conferences. More on this closer to the time… I’m also going to be on a radio program, Pythagoras’ Trousers, soon. You can get this in podcast format here.
Also, I went back to school. Mum and Dad told my school principle about Bleachgate, who was very impressed! I got a mention in school assembly on Friday, which was pretty cool. My school have also contacted a local newspaper and are going to put out a press release sometime this week.
That, however, came after an article on The Guardian website on Wednesday, by Martin Robbins (@mjrobbins)
You can find it here: Miracle Mineral Solution
He’s told me that he’ll be following it up tomorrow, so keep tuned.
Also, something incredible has happened…
Jim Humble claimed he took his product to Africa, which is where he did the majority of his “research”. As a direct result of the story making The Guardian website, an African newspaper, The Daily Nation reported here and here about the danger Miracle Mineral Solution poses to citizens. This is brilliant news and really demonstrates how news can spread to the people who need it the most.
Thank you to everyone who helped spread this story. You are incredible and have been instrumental in getting this story to those who really need it.
Ok, now THAT is awesome. One can only hope that some action is taken in Kenya after the Nation did some poking around : Not sure it will happen, but this is decent proof that skepticism is good for you. And everyone else 🙂
Great work, Rhys!
[Quick aside: It’s Robbins not Robbing- unlike many journalists he never plagiarises]
Fantastic news! Glad to see that much good is coming out of this whole thing. Congratulations on making a difference 🙂
Well done boyo!
I’m so pleased to see that this story is turning out to have such positive outcomes.
(BTW, hate to be a pedant, but did you mean “school principal”?)
