Proof that the FDA and other agencies do NOT consider chlorine dioxide poisonous

  • Controlled Clinical Evaluations of Chlorine Dioxide, Chlorite and Chlorate in Man. This is a report of a test where people were given Chlorine dioxide for months with no bad effects. By Judith R. Lubbers,*Sudha Chauan,*and Joseph R. Bianchine

“In several cases, statistically significant trends in certain biochemical or physiological parameters were associated with treatment; however, NONE of these trends was judged to have physiological consequence. One cannot rule out the possibility that, over a longer treatment period, these trends might indeed achieve proportions of clinical importance. However, by the absence of detrimental physiological responses within the limits of the study, the relative safety of oral ingestion of chlorine dioxide and its metabolites, chlorite and chlorate, was demonstrated. “https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1569027/

  • Obviously, if the FDA approves of the use of chlorine dioxide on food, it does not consider chlorine dioxide to be poisonous. See below: Ref. (1), and (2)

Chlorine dioxide is one powerhouse sanitizer that is getting more attention recently as food processors look for more efficacious products to help them win the sanitation battle. Approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), it is as powerful as peracetic acid and more economical, yet it has far less of an impact on the environment than quaternary ammonium salts, chlorine or bromine, making it an excellent choice for food processing plants. It costs about the same to use as other sanitizers but is more versatile and less harmful. It’s also been shown to destroy and prevent biofilms, one of the biggest challenges to food processors in destroying harmful bacteria. It also does not have the strong odor or corrosive qualities associated with chlorine.

It is a versatile alternative that can be used in many sanitation applications, including pasteurization equipment, heat exchangers, cooling towers, hard surface disinfecting, potable water treatment and deodorizing stacks in rendering plants. It is already growing in popularity as a tool to control microbiological growth in the dairy industry, the beverage industry, the fruit and vegetable processing industries, canning plants, and in poultry and beef facilities.

“Everybody in the food processing industry is looking for better cleaning and sanitation processes,” says Fred Holzhauer, Director of Business Development with Birko Corp., a leading specialty chemical manufacturer that provides a product line of more than 200 cleaning and sanitizing chemicals and application equipment to the meat, poultry, microbrewery and food industries (www.birkocorp.com).

“Chlorine dioxide eliminates sources and transfers of harmful pathogens in the food plant and attacks biofilms that form on equipment and other food-contact surfaces—all while doing less harm to the environment than other choices that do not have comparable strength.” Chlorine dioxide is the answer, says Holzhauer. Here are 10 reasons why:

1. Chlorine dioxide has 2.6 times the oxidizing power of waterborne chlorine (from bleach), giving it a wide spectrum of sanitizing uses and making it extraordinarily effective against a host of bugs. Studies have shown that it produces as high as a 6-log reduction.

2. Chlorine dioxide has a much wider pH spectrum than chlorine, making it more versatile and forgiving in a variety of application situations. Unlike chlorine, chlorine dioxide remains a true gas dissolved in solution. The lack of any significant reaction of chlorine dioxide with water is partly responsible for its ability to retain its biocidal effectiveness over a wide pH range. It also has limited reactions with organics, indicating that much more of the chlorine dioxide added to a system is available as a biocidal agent, and is not consumed to the degree that chlorine would be under the same circumstances. In addition, chlorine will react with, and be consumed by ammonia or any amine, while chlorine dioxide reacts very slowly with secondary amines, and sparingly with primary amines or ammonia.

3. Chlorine dioxide is registered with EPA (Registration No. 74986-1), and is considered an excellent bactericide, fungicide and antimicrobial agent. It has passed the EPA’s stringent DIS/TISS guidelines for use as a disinfectant and as a food-contact surface sanitizer.

4. The FDA and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) have approved stabilized sodium chlorite (a precursor) and chlorine dioxide in food processing plants for sanitizing and controlling bacteria and mold.

5. Chlorine dioxide is currently under EPA review as a surface sanitizer for E. coli O157:H7 and drug-resistant Salmonella. It is also currently under EPA review as a virucide for HIV and Hepatitis A and for use as a fungicide, virucide and algaecide.

6. Chlorine dioxide has been found to be one of the most effective tools for dispersing biofilms, and in some cases, inhibiting the formation of future biofilms. This function is especially valuable in the small cooling towers of food processing facilities where food product contamination can contribute to heavy films or algal slimes. Biofilm is a polysaccharide film or coating that protects and harbors viable bacteria colonies making surfaces more difficult to clean and disinfect.

7. Chlorine dioxide can be used on food-contact surfaces at diluted concentrations as low as 5 parts-per-million (ppm). In some cases, the compound has demonstrated a rapid kill of bacteria much less than the 30-minute period typically used in disinfection studies. Because it is so powerful in such small amounts, it is also extremely economical.

8. So far, problem cells have shown little ability to develop resistance to chlorine dioxide, as they can with other sanitizers, making it a consistent tool in the sanitation toolbox.

9. Chlorine dioxide generating systems can be used for odor control, sanitation and water purification applications. Birko Corp. offers an exclusive ClO2 generation system, which eliminates older, conventional “vacuum draw” technology, for outstanding consistency, accuracy and practical yield.

10. Unlike chlorine bleach and bromide, which make carcinogenic trihalomethanes that get washed down the drain and deposited in the environment, chlorine dioxide donates oxygen, breaking down to water, oxygen and common table salt. This makes it much less corrosive to equipment and a superb environmental choice. It also breaks down quickly, which means it won’t harm the soil or add toxic deposits to the ground.

“Chlorine dioxide has such a wide spectrum of uses,” Holzhauer says. “It’s got amazing firepower, it’s economical, and its environmental profile is safer than other choices. There’s nothing else out there that can compete.”

Uses & Benefits of Chlorine Dioxide

Powerful Disinfection in Water Treatment

Chlorine dioxide is a disinfectant. When added to drinking water, it helps destroy bacteria, viruses and some types of parasites that can make people sick, such as Cryptosporidium parvum and Giardia lamblia.

Personal Care Products

Personal hygiene applications for chlorine dioxide include mouthwash, toothpaste and contact lens cleaners. Chlorine dioxide is used in dentistry as an oxidizing biocide compound to treat bad breath.

Industrial/Manufacturing Uses

Chlorine dioxide chemistry is used in a wide variety of industrial, oil and gas, food and municipal applications:

Food and Beverage Production
Chlorine dioxide can be used as an antimicrobial agent in water used in poultry processing and to wash fruits and vegetables.

Medical Applications
In hospitals and other healthcare environments, chlorine dioxide gas helps to sterilize medical and laboratory equipment, surfaces, rooms and tools. Researchers have found that at appropriate concentrations, chlorine dioxide is both “safe and effective” at helping to eliminate Legionella bacteria in hospital environments, as well as Legionnaires’ disease, a potentially deadly type of pneumonia caused by the Legionella pneumophila bacteria.

Other Industrial Uses
Chlorine dioxide used in oil and gas disinfection applications can help increase well performance and also combat oil souring and protect other fluids from spoilage. Chlorine dioxide is used in the electronics industry to clean circuit boards and as a bleach in the paper and textile manufacturing processes.

Safety Information

According to U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, chlorine dioxide is added to drinking water to protect people from waterborne pathogens. Chlorine dioxide is used to disinfect drinking water around the world and is approved for use by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and included in the World Health Organization’s (WHO) Guidelines for Drinking-water Quality. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) also has approved the use of chlorine dioxide in certain food applications as well as in over-the-counter and prescription drugs.

In its pure form, chlorine dioxide is a hazardous gas but most people are “not likely” to breathe air containing dangerous levels of chlorine dioxide as it does not occur naturally in the environment. For workers who use chlorine dioxide, the U.S. Occupational Safety and Hazard Administration (OSHA) regulates the level of chlorine dioxide in workplace air for safety. OSHA has set a Permissible Exposure Limit (PEL) for chlorine dioxide at 0.1 parts per million (ppm), or 0.3 milligrams (mg) per cubic meters (m3) for workers using chlorine dioxide for general industrial purposes. OSHA also has a PEL for chlorine dioxide for the construction industry. Chlorine dioxide is always made at the location where it is used.

Chlorine Dioxide (aka MMS) Registered by the FDA for MRSA Prevention Protocol

The EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) has recently registered a new product for preventing and eliminating methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), which causes potentially deadly infections commonly known as “staph” infections. The MRSA “super bug” is typically contracted in hospitals, in other healthcare environments, and in health clubs and locker rooms.

The EPA has registered Selectrocide chlorine dioxide for use as a disinfectant on hard, non-porous surfaces and instruments, including those used within hospitals and other medical settings. As a no-wipe, no-rinse spray, Selectrocide chlorine dioxide can also be used on hard, non-porous surfaces in health clubs, spas, public places and swimming facilities as a treatment against MRSA. The EPA has also registered Selectrocide as a disinfectant for vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus faecalis, athlete’s foot, Mycobacterium bovis (TB) and other pathogens that spread in many environments.

MRSA is usually spread by direct physical contact with those already infected or through indirect contact by touching objects (towels, clothes, sports equipment, etc.) that infected skin has contaminated. Consequently, any heavily trafficked area can be a source of infection.

According to a report by the BBC News, “Staphylococcus aureus is the leading cause of human infections in the skin and soft tissues, bones and joints, abscesses and normal heart valves. It flourishes in the hospital setting, producing bloodstream and surgical wound infections, including MRSA.” (news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/health/4671585.stm)

HOW SELECTROCIDE KILLS MRSA AND OTHER DEADLY PATHOGENS

Selectrocide is greater than 99% pure chlorine dioxide, an ideal biocide because of its ability to kill viruses, bacteria, fungi, and algae at low saturation levels (parts per million) in a manner that does not allow pathogens to build resistance to the compound.

Prior to Selectrocide, healthcare and health club environments were limited to using substances like bleach and quaternary ammonium compounds that can leave residue and require higher concentrations than does chlorine dioxide to achieve the same antimicrobial efficacy.

Selectrocide’s chlorine dioxide is produced in water and sprayed, mopped, or sponged onto surfaces that require disinfection. After application, the solution is left on target surfaces and does not require rinsing. Due to the comparatively low application concentrations required to kill pathogens, Selectrocide is compatible with most materials.

THE DEVELOPMENT OF MRSA AND ITS INCREASING RESISTANCE TO ANTIBIOTICS

Staphylococcus aureus (SA)-Antibiotic Resistance (General): Throughout history, Staphylococcus aureus (SA) has been a dangerous pathogen once it has successfully breached the normal defense system. The first effective antibiotic against SA, penicillin, became available in the 1940s. Soon after, SA evolved resistance to penicillin, and by the late 1950s, 50 percent of all SA strains were resistant. Today, fewer than 10 percent of SA infections can be cured with penicillin.

The next weapons against SA, methicillin and cephalosporin, became available in the 1960s and 1970s. By the late 1970s, some strains of SA had evolved resistance to these drugs. Today, as many as 50 percent of SA strains isolated from U.S. hospitals are resistant to methicillin. (Source: National Institutes of Health)

GENERAL BACKGROUND INFORMATION ON CHLORINE DIOXIDE AND SELECTROCIDE

Chlorine dioxide is effective at low concentrations across a wide range of pH (roughly 4 to 9), and, because it is a gas in its natural state, dissipates upon exposure to sunlight As a consequence, it is known widely as one of the most effective inhibitors of algae, yeast, mold, fungi and viruses. However, because transporting the gas is prohibited in all but frozen forms, pure chlorine dioxide has heretofore been limited to use in large concerns that employ chemical generators, such as pulp mills (controlling slime) and municipal water systems (water purification applications).

Similarly, in cleaning and antimicrobial knockdown applications, pure chlorine dioxide has been unavailable, and only with “stabilized” solutions or acidified sodium chlorite, which are corrosive and produce significant chemical residues, could any of the advantages of chlorine dioxide be realized.

JUST ADD WATER — AND WAIT. Now, Selectrocide brings the power of greater than 99% pure chlorine dioxide solutions to point-of-use applications. Selectrocide produces chlorine dioxide simply by submersing the product in water. The resulting chlorine dioxide solution can be used to kill disease-bearing bacteria, yeasts, molds, fungi and algae using spraying, washing or “dip” cleaning methods.

Selectrocide makes it possible-for the first time-to generate specific concentrations of chlorine dioxide at the point of use, at neutral pH and with very low residuals, using only tap water.

SUMMARY OF SELECTROCIDE BENEFITS

US EPA-registered as a disinfectant against MRSA, and other potentially virulent pathogens.

  • Pathogens cannot build up resistance to Selectrocide because it kills harmful organisms by breaking down cell walls.
  • Easy to use and does not require HAZMAT or complicated equipment
  • Can be made on-site in specific quantities and in concentrations desired. Only tap water is required to generate the chlorine dioxide.
  • Because it kills pathogens with such efficacy, Selectrocide may reduce costs because fewer disinfection treatments may be required during a given maintenance and cleaning cycle.

  • Food Processing. Using a distinctive concentration of chlorine dioxide it provides specific microbiological control for the food and beverage industry, such as brewing and bottling, washing fruit and vegetables, poultry and meat processing, fish processing and dairy plants.

Using a distinctive concentration of chlorine dioxide it provides specific microbiological control for the food and beverage industry, such as brewing and bottling, washing fruit and vegetables, poultry and meat processing, fish processing and dairy plants. Chlorine dioxide does not react with most “organics” in flume water; this makes it a very effective disinfectant. It is also an excellent odor neutralizer, helping to neutralize foul smelling odors including secondary and tertiary amines formed in the meat packing industry.

A list of possible markets to apply Dutrion products are:

  • Fruit and vegetable processing.
  • Poultry processing.
  • Food contact paper manufacture.
  • Cleaning pasteurizers, warmers and coolers.
  • Disinfection of packing operations.
  • Flume water control.
  • Water treatment.
  • Equipment disinfection.
  • Disinfection of tankers, vehicles and transportation vessels.

Cleaning in place (CIP) and sanitizing operations

Active chlorine dioxide can be very effective when used as the final sanitizing rinse in CIP systems, including filler rooms. Typically applied at low concentrations with a short contact time. It leaves no toxic residues to interfere with other chemical/biochemical processes. Chlorine dioxide works quickly and breaks down into inert compounds. Its unique chemistry produces no toxic by-products (such as THM’s) and is therefore an environmentally friendly alternative to traditional sanitizers.

Other examples of sanitizing applications for Dutrion products are:

  • Cleaning pasteurizers, bottle/can warmers and coolers.
  • Chain and conveyor spray in bakeries.
  • Crate washing, bottle wash, staff hand wash.
  • Water purification and disinfection of water distribution and storage tanks.
  • Mold and odor control with Dutrion or DutriGel.
  • Sanitation of tanker trucks, wagons and transportation vessels.
