Bruce does have an "ax" to grind. He feels that the 28% solution is being improperly mailed. He feels that it should have "Corrosive" labels on the bottles and on the package labels, and should be shipped with paperwork appropriate to the corrosive labeling.
This is true for industrial quantities.
My research has uncovered an exception for small amounts (1 kg or under) of the 28% solution, but Bruce does not acknowledge that exception.
The highest allowable concentration of sodium chlorite that is exempt from "hazard" labeling is 5%.
Bruce's company produces thousands of gallons of 5% sodium chlorite that he sells to slaughter houses, meat packing, food processing, fish processing, vegetable processing, hospitals, industrial cooling water, and swimming pool suppliers. He has commented that he should bottle some of this 5% solution in small bottles and make it available to the general public. I don't know if he will do that or not.
At any rate, that is the crux of the debate. He also was alarmed over the people getting sick and has voiced his concerns over the proper use of higher concentrations of sodium chlorite. He has also voiced concerns of children "getting into" the bottles of higher concentrations and the possible ramifications of that.
Bruce actually believes in the "healing" qualities of ClO2, and uses it himself. He just wants to make sure that people don't get ill needlessly, and that packages that are damaged in the mail don't inadvertently injure the people handling those packages.
