I think there’s a slight difference between the way you’re using it and the way the FDA approves of.
The additive may be used as an antimicrobial agent in water used to wash fruits and vegetables that are not raw agricultural commodities in an amount not to exceed 3 ppm residual chlorine dioxide as determined by Method 4500-ClO2 E, referenced in paragraph (a)(2) of this section, or an equivalent method. Treatment of the fruits and vegetables with chlorine dioxide shall be followed by a potable water rinse or by blanching, cooking, or canning.
If we were consuming the 50 ppm you suggested through food, why would we need to supplement it? Your references don’t support the idea of anti-candida enemas either, and the only evidence of effectiveness is anecdotal and sporadic. Usage also isn’t without potential side-effects like diarrhoea and vomiting, which would at least be listed on an “Uncle Pharma” product.
HOWEVER, a lot of people seem to have used it in some form whether it was warranted or not, and there don’t seem to be any major horror stories reported anywhere. Absence of evidence isn’t evidence of absence, as they say, but it’s something that’s at least worth pointing out for balance.
There are other clearly effective treatments for some horrible diseases that aren’t employed simply because nobody’s paid for a decent study. There’s always an element of risk when you’re acting without evidence though, no matter how many anecdotes you can find, so people should realise this when they take things into their own hands.
