The harm of sodium chlorite to human body

Sodium chlorite is a strong oxidant that causes clinical symptoms similar to sodium chlorite: methemoglobinemia, hemolysis, and renal failure. One dose of 10-15 grams of sodium chlorite can be fatal. The EPA has set the maximum level of chlorite contamination in drinking water at 1 mg (1 mg/L) per liter.

In addition, when sodium chlorite is bleached in an acidic state, chlorine dioxide is released, which is an irritant. Chlorine dioxide invades the respiratory and eye mucosa. Chlorine dioxide can harm the human nervous system, and there have been cases of emphysema and bronchitis. The human body can sense chlorine dioxide when it is 14 -- 17 mg/L in the air. Death may result if the concentration remains at this level for 6 hours. The allowable concentration of chlorine dioxide in the air of workshop is below 1 mg/L.
