Oh dear, you're doing it again. Yes, it's change the subject time. At what point did Catlin express any interest in hard water v. soft water, pre-treated v. posttreated? She didn't.
Why do you continue to assign silly, unrelated homework to people who ask interesting questions? Whatever the case may be with ClO2 and minerials, she specifically mentioned health problems relating to the nasty gut problems which many people who try mms end up having.
Also, what do the runs and mineral absorbtion of ClO2 have to do with each other? Unless, I suppose, the mms is causing such problems, which would seem to indicate no further mms comsumption should be attempted.
If you do want to talk about minerals, let's talk about leg cramps and mag. Does it matter when the minerals become unavalable? No.
Again Tom, I'm still waiting for you to discuss, in a straightforward manner, why you would recommend someone take mms, when there is little known about how ClO2 behaves in vivo.
Also, what is your training and why should anyone listen to your opinions? I know, no one has to, but people get scared and desperate.
