Mechanisms Of Toxicity Of Chlorine Oxides Against Malarial Parasites

Okay, first of all, I will say there has been so much negative information posted here regarding Miracle-Mineral-Supplement that it has led me to examine it further. There is not 'big money' in selling $20 bottles of sodium chlorite.

That said, I don't know if Miracle-Mineral-Supplement 'works' or not. We must ask, 'Against what'? And at what dose? Miracle-Mineral-Supplement also may have some level of toxicity. This level of toxicity may be acceptable if the harm done to the body is orders of magnitude below the harm done to the target pathogen.

HOWEVER, I decided to examine chlorine dioxide against biological pathogens from a purely theoretical basis. And yes, there IS evidence to support the action of chlorine dioxide against a range of pathogens through its pro-oxidative activity. The human body is much better equipped to handle oxidative stress than are parasitic species. Chlorine dioxide will react with thiols, polyamines, purines, and certain amino acids.

All bacteria have been shown to be incabable of growing in any medium in which the oxidants (electron grabbers) out-number the reductants (electron donors). Therefore, oxidants are at least bacteriostatic and at most are bacteriocidal. Many oxidants have been proven useful as antibacterial disinfectants. Hypochlorites (ClO-) sodium hypochlorite are commonly used as bleaching agents, as swimming pool sanitizers, and as disinfectants. At low concentrations chlorine dioxide (ClO2) chlorine dioxide has been shown to kill many types of bacteria, viruses and protozoa. Ozone (O3) ozone or chlorine dioxide (ClO2) chlorine dioxide are often used to disinfect public water supplies or to sanitize and deodorize waste water. Sodium chlorite (NaClO2) sodium chlorite or chlorine dioxide (ClO2) chlorine dioxide solutions are used in certain mouth washes to clear mouth odors and oral bacteria. Chlorine dioxide (ClO2) sanitizes food preparation facilities. Acidified sodium chlorite is FDA approved as a spray in the meat packing industry to sanitized meat. This can also be used to sanitize vegetables and other foods. Farmers use this to cleanse the udders of cows to prevent mastitis, or to rid eggs of pathogenic bacteria. Chlorine dioxide (ClO2) can be used to disinfect endoscopes. Oxidants such as Iodine iodine , various peroxides benzoyl peroxide , permanganate potassium permanganate and chlorine dioxide chlorine dioxide can be applied topically to the skin to treat infections caused by bacteria or fungi.


Chlorine dioxide (ClO2) has been proven to be cidal to almost all known infectious agents in vitro using remarkably low concentrations. This includes parasites, fungi, bacteria and viruses. The experiences noted above imply that this compound is tolerable orally at effective concentrations. Therefore extensive research is warranted to determine if acidified sodium chlorite is effective in treating other infections.
