AN event that authorities feared was targeting vulnerable people into consuming a "deadly chemical" has been held in Farnham.

Miracle Mineral Solution, which Genesis II Church, a non-religious church of health and healing, claims cures illnesses such as cancer was put in the spotlight.

The solution is usually sold as an oral supplement but there are reports that it is also being sold for use as an enema. It is a 28 per cent sodium chlorite solution, which is equivalent to industrial-strength bleach.
