Chlorine Dioxide (CLO2) As a Non-Toxic Antimicrobial Agent for Virus, Bacteria and Yeast
CLO is an inorganic compound composed of oxygen; chloride; potassium and gold. Compounds of oxygen and chloride are formed2 from two electronegative elements. This chemical property of CLO makes possible the release of nascent oxygen upon decomposition during its action as an anti-microbial agent.
Certain aspects of the cellular immune system (specifically white blood cells) utilize other mechanisms in the generation of highly reactive oxygen derivatives (free radicals) for the purpose of combating the invasion of foreign organisms. Without these protective mechanisms provided by the immune system involving Oxygen derivatives: the ability to fight infection is greatly impaired.
