Human Toxicity Excerpts:

We can begin by saying there are no known deaths that have occured as a result of taking CD. This is a powerful statement in that tens of millions of people world wide use it. In contrast, prescription drugs are the number 4 killer in the USA after heart attacks and cancer. These are prescribed drugs.

Our prescription drugs kill us in large numbers

CD is approved for personal consumption as a water purifying agent. You can buy it at Walmart!

An assessment of the safety of chronically administered chlorine water disinfectants in man was conducted in 3 phases. Phase I, a rising dose tolerance investigation, examined the effects of single dose incr concn admin of disinfectants to normal healthy adult male volunteers. Phase II considered the impact on normal subjects of 12 wk daily ingestion of the disinfectants at a concn of 5 mg/L. In phase III, chlorite, at a concn of 5 mg/L, was administered daily to glucose 6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G-6-PD)-deficient subjects. The study affirmed the relative safety and tolerance of normal healthy adult males and normal healthy adult male G-6-PD-deficient individuals to daily 12 wk ingestion of 500 mL of chlorine disinfectants at a concentration of 5 mg/L. /Disinfection byproducts/ -- [Bianchine JR et al; Study of chlorine dioxide and its metabolites in man; Report: 100 pages (1981) ISS EPA-600/1-81-068; Order Number PB82-109356] **PEER REVIEWED**


In a series of extensive human volunteer studies on water disinfectants, groups of 10 males received aqueous chlorine dioxide in drinking-water by a range of different protocols (a sequence of rising concentrations of up to around 0.34 mg/kg body weight over a 16-day period, approximately 0.035 mg/kg body weight on every third day for 12 weeks, or approximately 3.6 x 10-5 mg aqueous chlorine dioxide/kg body weight per day daily for 12 weeks). Observations included physical examination (blood pressure, respiration rate, pulse, oral temperature, and electrocardiography), extensive blood biochemistry, hematology, and urinalysis, and the subjective recording of taste. There were no significant adverse effects recorded for any of the parameters measured. -- [International Programme on Chemical Safety's Concise International Chemical Assessment Documents Number 37: Chlorine dioxide (2002).

Here is a quote by the US Gov EPA


4.1 Chlorine Dioxide Chemistry: Chlorine dioxide functions as a highly selective oxidant due to its unique, one-electron transfer mechanism where it is reduced to chlorite (ClO2-) (Hoehn et al., 1996). 4.4 – Chlorine dioxide is a strong oxidant and disinfectant. Its disinfecting mechanisms are not well understood, but appear to vary by the type of microorganism. 4.4.1 – In the first disinfection mechanism, chlorine dioxide reacts readily with amino acids cysteine, tryptophan, and tyrosine, but not with viral ribonucleic acid (RNA) (Noss, et al., 1983; Olivier et al., 1985) It was concluded that chlorine dioxide inactivated viruses by altering the viral capsid proteins.

Here is another important revelation:

This data, produced by Lenntech, is often quoted around the world by universities and in scientific papers.  Their website has this to say:

Chlorine dioxide disinfection

"ClO2 is used principally as a primary disinfectant for surface waters with odor and taste problems. It is an effective biocide at concentrations as low as 0.1 ppm and over a wide pH range. ClO2 penetrates the bacterial cell wall and reacts with vital amino acids in the cytoplasm of the cell to kill the organisms. The by-product of this reaction is chlorite.

"Chlorine dioxide disinfects according to the same principle as chlorine, however, as opposed to chlorine, chlorine dioxide has no harmful effects on human health."

There is further support for the fact that taking MMS is not harmful when taking it for an extended period of time. Back in 1982, the National Institutes of Health in Washington, DC conducted an extended double blind clinical trial to determine whether there is a liability in consuming chlorine dioxide over a period of time.  They also tested the chemicals sodium chlorate and sodium chlorite at the same time.  The tests were conducted on humans and not rats.  The tests conducted demonstrated that no harmful adverse conditions resulted in human bodies.  To follow is the significant text of interest in the summery:

"However, by the absence of detrimental physiological responses within the limits of the study, the relative safety of oral ingestion of chlorine dioxide and its metabolites, chlorite and chlorate, was demonstrated."
