The Chlorine Dioxide Molecule
Is this as powerful as they
may be surprised...
Chlorine Dioxide as a Water Purification Product and Safe Water Treatment
Chlorine Dioxide is a compound that has been used to treat
municipal drinking water in the United States and Europe for over 50 years. It is recognised as a superior water disinfectant alternative to chlorine and has
become increasingly popular as a water purification treatment. Chlorine is being phased out due to growing
concerns over its carcinogenic by-products, principally trihalomethanes (THMs). Similarly other halogens such as
fluorine, bromine and iodine, some of which have been used in water treatment situations by consumers, are
recognised as having unhealthy by-products. Iodine in particular, has been recognised as affecting the thyroid
gland. Unlike chlorine, chlorine dioxide does not create
In the U.S, the Safe Water Drinking
Act and its subsequent amendments over the last 20 years have
required dramatic improvements in the quality of municipal drinking water. These stringent new requirements have
increased the use of chlorine dioxide in the U.S. while decreasing the use of chlorine as a water treatment
chemical. Using chlorine dioxide provides a double benefit to communities
because it is a more effective water purifier than chlorine and is free of chlorine's unhealthy
The following video clip outlines the efficacy of the compound chlorine dioxide against a number
of modern antagonists to the health of our human physiology. Its a well worth watch.
ClO2 is effective
against the following water contaminants:
Organic Contaminants -
ClO2 completely eliminates and treats the following
contaminants: Viruses, water bacteria,
giardia, botulism cryptosporidium, e. coli and cholera.
Substances - Pollutants found in waste water, cyanides in wastewater, nitrites and
sulfides, 3,4-benzopyrene, iron and manganese in water, tastes and odors produced by algae, the dyes
produced by chlorophyll and plants, pesticides.
(MMS) does not produce THMs as chlorine does, and doesn't give rise to
the formation of chloroform and bromochloromethane as chlorine does.
(MMS) does not react with ammonia, nitrogenous compounds or
precursors to form chloroform as chlorine does.
