They both are oxidizers but that's the one of the few things they have in common. Miracle-Mineral-Supplement is a different molecule that oxidizes in a different way. Miracle-Mineral-Supplement oxidizes with the chlorine molecule instead of the oxygen. The oxygen is given off in a neutral state that doesn't oxidize.
Normal levels of oxygen in the blood cannot destroy all of the
pathogens present under disease conditions, however, when chlorine
dioxide is adsorbed with the oxygen it is a different story. When a
chlorine dioxide ion contacts a harmful pathogen it instantly accepts
five electrons from the pathogen, or it might be more descriptive to
say that it instantly tears off five electrons. An extremely fast
chemical reaction is in essence an explosion, and this is exactly what
happens on a microscopic level. The damage to the pathogen is a
result of losing electrons to the chlorine ion and the release of energy.
The pathogen, basically, is oxidized by chlorine ions and as a part of
the action the chlorine becomes a harmless chloride (table salt). Two
atoms of oxygen are released as ions from the chlorine dioxide ion
but the oxygen has little effect other than to attach to hydrogen ions
making water or attach to a carbon ion to make carbon dioxide.
It is the process of the chlorine dioxide ion oxidizing pathogens or
other harmful chemicals that is beneficial to the body. Although the
two oxygen ions of the chlorine dioxide ion are released, their charge
level does not result in oxidation. The same process continues
throughout the body where chlorine dioxide ions contact pathogens.
It does not attack beneficial bacteria or healthy body parts, as their
pH is not below 7. It will also oxidize diseased cells, such as
infections or cancer. In the event that the chlorine dioxide does not
contact a pathogen or other poison, it deteriorates into table salt and
hypochlorous acid that is useable by the body.
The lymph nodes, for example, are one of the areas where the blood
normally releases oxygen to oxidize various poisons in the node and
then it carries the oxidized poisons away to the liver. The red blood
cells carry the chlorine dioxide ions the same as oxygen and thus
chlorine dioxide ions are also released in the lymph nodes. The
chlorine dioxide ions are inert to normal cells but they will destroy
disease pathogens found there.
A minute amount of naturally produced chlorine dioxide is found in
the human body, and one of the chemicals that chlorine dioxide
helps to create as it deteriorates is myeloperoxidase a chemical that
the immune system needs. The immune system uses this chemical,
myeloperoxidase, to generate hypochlorous acid. The body uses
hypochlorous acid extensively to kill parasites, bacteria, fungi,
viruses, tumor cells, natural killer cells, and to destroy some waste
products under normal conditions. However, diseases and body
conditions can result in a deficiency in the hypochlorous acid needed
to destroy the pathogens that are present. This is due to a medical
condition known as myeloperoxidase deficiency. In the case of many
other diseases there are other immune system reactions that can
overcome the diseases, however in the cases of malaria and other
extreme diseases, there is not enough hypochlorous acid to kill the parasites or pathogens, nor are there any other immune system
reactions that can destroy them. Thus the hypochlorous acid created
by chlorine dioxide as it deteriorates in the body is probably another
mechanism by which malaria and other diseases are destroyed.
