MMS, as manufactured to the specifications described in Jim Humble’s book, is not 28% sodium chlorite but rather 22.4%. This is explained in Part II Chapter 15.
The sodium chlorite used in the manufacturing process is technical grade 80%. As stated in Thomas Lee Hesselink, MD’s overview, “On the Mechanisms of Oxidation of Chlorine Oxides”, the remaining 20% is a mixture of the usual excipients necessary in the manufacture and stabilization of sodium chlorite powder or flake.
MMS is therefore not simply sodium chlorite and distilled water but more precisely:
It is important that the actual sodium chlorite content of Miracle-Mineral-Supplement NOT be overstated and the actual ingredients of Miracle-Mineral-Supplement not be understated. The trace quantities of the remaining sodium chemicals listed above are considered nontoxic.
Further, 22.4% sodium chlorite in 4oz aqueous solution of distilled water is not a “hazmet” (hazardous materials) chemical. This is important to understand when assumedly educated individuals refer to Miracle-Mineral-Supplement as “hazmet” while either naively or disingenuously referring to regulations surrounding the transfer of bulk, concentrated/non-diluted sodium chlorite powder.
