Catlin brought forth a concern about ClO2 interfering with the absorption of minerals in the body and the possible health effects from that.
In paragraph 2 of my response, I offered a correction by pointing out that ClO2 has the potential to oxidize minerals. Looking at the absorption mechanism of the body may not be a good focus. It may be better to explore how ClO2 oxidizes minerals.
I went on to say that regardless of the focus, the end result is the same. I will go on to say that perhaps the best focus would be to look at the effects of reduced mineral intake upon general health.
I then went on to describe some testing that I have done on dissolving minerals from water using ClO2, and gave Catlin a starting point to go from if she was interested in also exploring this.
When you explored the ability of ClO2 to oxidize minerals, what tests did you do and what results did you observe?
