These links will be of interest to anyone considering ingesting MMS, sodium chlorite for health benefits.
Chlorine dioxide is a powerful oxidising agent which causes a bacterial cell to give up electrons, thereby creating a breach through which cell contents pass in an attempt to bring the concentrations on either side of the cell membrane to equilibrium. The cell dies through lysis. Chlorine dioxide is a broad-spectrum biocide with the advantage that bacteria, fungi and viruses do not build up a natural resistance to it. Environmentally, chlorine dioxide does not form toxic trihalomethanes (THMs) or other chlorinated compounds that are harmful to the environment and which are associated with the use of chlorine, sodium hypochlorite and hypochlorous acid.
The EU Biocidal Products Directive aims to ensure that biocides pose no undue threat to human health or the environment and has already led to the withdrawal of a number of substances. Chlorine dioxide provides a safe, efficacious and cost-effective solution, that is available in a variety of formats to suit the disinfection needs of the laboratory, and is increasingly being written into laboratory disinfection codes of practice.
Tristel Duo kills organisms on a surface with a contact time of just 30 seconds and is effective against a wide range including MRSA, Norovirus, Clostridium difficile, Bacillus subtilis, Mycobacterium tuberculosis and Acinetobacter baumannii. An independent study conducted last year at the School of Life Sciences, Glasgow Caledonian University confirmed its efficacy against two opportunistic pathogens in the hospital environment, epidemic methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (EMRSA) and human Norovirus
