Let’s check on its benefits and facts:
Powerful Disinfection in Water Treatment
Chlorine dioxide is a disinfectant, that when added to drinking water, helps destroy bacteria, viruses and some types of parasites (such as Cryptosporidium parvum and Giardia lamblia).
In hospitals and other healthcare environments, Chlorine Dioxide gas helps to sterilize medical and laboratory equipment, surfaces, rooms and tools. Researchers have found that at appropriate concentrations, Chlorine Dioxide is both safe and effective at helping to eliminate Legionella bacteria in hospitals. Legionella pneumophila bacteria can cause Legionnaires’ disease, a potentially deadly type of pneumonia.
Food and Beverage Production
Chlorine dioxide is also used as an antimicrobial agent in water, e.g. for poultry processing and to wash fruits and vegetables on an industrial scale.
Chlorine dioxide is not a cure or treatment for medical ailments, including but not limited to autism, HIV, malaria, hepatitis, influenza, common colds, and cancer. Claims that the ingestion of Chlorine Dioxide that will cure this or that are false. Chlorine Dioxide should not be consumed.
In its pure 100% concentrated form, Chlorine Dioxide is a hazardous gas but most people are “not likely” to breathe air containing dangerous levels of chlorine dioxide as it rapidly breaks down in air to chlorine gas and oxygen.
