Some great feedback. I find the MMS discussion extemely provocative.
So why would MMS then treat cancers, viruses, and assist with autoimmune diseases? What is it's cancer activity.
What is the theoretical mechanism of action if ClO2 if it doesn't give up a single oxygen. (Which others have suggested it just might)
To me mechanism of action is very important as an advocate.
Of course "if" something works is more important than "how" it works but when battling hard line traditional medicine advocates I love having a mechanism of action that they cannot refute. I like to know what I am talking about and still I am a bit confused.
If CLO2 doesn't give up an oxygen via catylase, via gas dynamics from high to low concentrations, or by bonding with heavier cations, If it doesn't disolve in water, I still wonder when someone says that oxygen 'wanders off,' why can't this wandering oxygen be utilized by heavy cations, or by other chemicals that love to attach to oxygen.
If this oxygen forms CO2 where did it get the naked carbon from?
To me this sounds like oxygen donation. ClO2- lets go of an oxygen, or can it dissolve in water to split an 02 as a chorine salt?
Even the term, wandering off, to me means donation of oxygen. This stage in the process is the stage I still want to call oxygen donation or transfer.
Oxygen is highly reactive, so the chemical reaction would be written as what?
O + H + H = H2O? This would make the free floating oxygen an alkaline substance wouldn't it. Attracting H ions? I am not even sure single oxygen atom can exist for very long all by itself it's so reactive.
If O2 forms water when it wanders off, I don't think this reaction can occur can it? O2 is difficult to separtate and H ions are very weak electron attractors just by their molecular weight alone. What is the chemical reaction that splits oxygen from the chlorine and forms CO2 or even H20?
One of the oxygen bonds in CL02 is a resonating bond. It only features three electrons if stable. This oxygen is what I am interested in!
Just to make this more confusing. I know that Chlorine Dioxide has several oxidation states withing corresponding anions, ie., ClO-, ClO2-,ClO3-, ClO4-
Can these anions exist when consuming ClO2-?
If these anions can exist wont the extra oxygen be available for the taking?
Am I confusing everyone?
