MMS & Its History
Chlorine dioxide is one of those chemicals that has stood
the test of time, though its uses have certainly varied over the years. If you go back to the year 1860 you will
see that it was created first as a laboratory accident, as most things in the scientific world are created, but
later on it was actually used as a teeth whitening product. Yes, more advanced and sophisticated methods were
eventually created, but hydrogen dioxide remains one of the most popular cleaning agents out
The truth however is that chlorine dioxide has roots that go
all the way back to 1811. It wasn't' the most useful chemical back then even though it had the ability to disinfect
water in a manner superior to all others at the time. The problem however was that chlorine dioxide was unstable
(it still is) and as a result would need to be produced on the spot.
In 1985 the Texas Department of Health released
a requirement that a maximum of 1.0 mg/L of residual chlorine dioxide would be present in drinking water.
Once the initial tests were completed, it was found that the drinking THM concentrations averaged 60 ug/L,
and the amount of turbidites were the lowest they had ever been with any other disinfectant on the
In May of 1988 the EPA registered chlorine dioxide as a
sterilant, and MMS was acknowledged as a gas capable of killing microorganisms thought he disruption of
transport nutrients. Chlorine dioxide can in fact be generated in a gas form or a liquid form, which certainly
makes it more useful in any case. As you can see, chlorine dioxide has certainly made its mark throughout history,
and it's influence continues to grow even today. You're more than likely wondering though what effect it has had in
the world of modern medicine.
Officially MMS is not used in hospitals, but it has been used to help malaria victims in
instances where help was simply not available. The substance
became known as MMS, though like other supplements on the market many people are suspicious of it, especially
considering the fact that it contains
chlorine dioxide, and most have a hard time understanding that it has no relation to chlorine bleach. In
other words it will rid your body of any unwanted pathogens without actually causing harm which is something that
most other supplements cannot do.
That being said, it might be worth taking a look at,
especially if you suffer from health issues. It won't fix everything of course, and you should not rely on it as
your sole medication. Instead let it help you over time and see where it takes you. You might just be
