People who work in industrial environments are usually more sensitive to safety issues than others. Accidents are "waiting to happen" and it is the workers job to avoid them and protect against them. Safety meetings are regularly conducted, and safety is foremost on everyones mind.
Frequently, industry utilizes hazardous chemicals. Cautions, precautions, safety information, first aid information, and general handling instructions are posted in areas where these chemicals are used. Often, special protective equipment is required in these areas.
If you work in an area like this, you frequently come across "close calls." This happens when safety procedures weren't followed close enough, but the incident is not severe enough to require medical treatment.
I can assure you that if you were working in a chemical plant, or a factory that utilizes potentially hazardous chemicals, and lots and lots of people reported that they were becoming nauseous, and were experiencing diarrhea and vomiting, the plant or factory would most likely be shut down until the cause was discovered and eliminated.
Let's look at the "herx" reaction. What is it? Isn't it the body getting rid of toxins?
As I see it, a simple question was raised. Are the toxins being released coming from the "bad stuff" dieing off in your bodies, or are they coming from too high a concentration of ClO2?
I happen to be one of those that works in these types of industries. I really appreciate the question being raised, however, I don't care for the way it was raised.
In order to come to an informed decision about alternate health care, you need to do a lot of research and toss ideas back and forth with "like minded" people. In a population of people visiting a forum, you will run into people with differing levels of expertise. You should listen to what they have to say, do your own research to verify what they are saying, and if they are wrong, point out the areas were they need to revisit their thinking.
There is a lot of information available on sodium chlorite solutions and activating sodium chlorite for various uses. It takes time to sift through all of this information and to form conclusions from it. I think it is time well spent.
I believe that if the reported side effects from using Miracle-Mineral-Supplement only involved an upset stomach and a persons left thumb turning blue, you probably would never have heard of Bruce...
Coming back to the question in the first post, Jim Humble, in his book, gives instructions on how to utilize lower concentrations of sodium chlorite solutions. You have a choice, you can use Miracle-Mineral-Supplement , or you can follow the suggestions for using a lower concentration product. The main advantage to using Miracle-Mineral-Supplement is its cost. One ounce of "stabilized oxygen" can go for around $40, whereas 4 ounces of MMS goes for around $20. However, if Bruce can come up with a product to compete with "stabilized oxygen" and offers it at a reduced price, that will give us another alternative to use.
Some people may actually benefit from a less concentrated solution. If your hands shake, you may find it difficult to measure drops. It may be easier to use a syringe to measure milliliters.
All in all, I think I disagree with you. I think MMS is right for everyone, but the challenge is figuring out when it is right, and how much is right. MMS has the capability to kill off all types of "bad stuff," and everyone ends up with some "bad stuff" in them from time to time.
