Speaking for myself, I have great compassion for anyone who is suffering from ill health. I have tremendous compassion for anyone who is so ill that they are willing to experiment on themselves. Whatever anyone thinks of pharmacuticals, very rarely does anyone expect you to conduct kitchen chemistry or test a completely unresearched substance on yourself - Miracle-Mineral-Supplement , not ClO2. There is a difference.
Yes, there is a lot known about ClO2, although not necessarily about the ingestion of it, but not MMS. Little to nothing about MMS is known, not the reaction between NaClO2 and Humble's choice of acid, not how it works or doesn't work in your body, not what is actually in those bottles of MMS you get in the mail. (before anyone gets side tracked here, I'm not arguing about safety of efficacy of perscription drugs, 2 different topics).
I have no doubt that some people feel better after taking MMS and I am truly glad. Why that is so is not known. I would like to know more about that, but beyond fairly general statements (I have more energy, my stomach feels better, my ear infection went away) by unknown people with unknown motives, no doubt many of them sincere, just isn't enough. To say that each person has to try it and test it on themselves to know if it works sounds like a horrible and dangerous excuse.
I hope all of us with health issues get better. Personally, I have lyme and would love to feel better. I see a doctor, I have regular lab work done, and I know what's actually happening in my body. MMS users, without more attention to what is actually going on in their bodies at a biochemical level, will never know. They deserve to know. They deserve more.
