As I explained earlier, you are right – but there’s more to be said.
One very important thing is dat chlorine dioxide does not discriminate between “good” and “bad” bacteria. Heck, some bacteria cannot even be categorised as either “good” or “bad”. Reality consists of many shades of grey, you know.
So, you are right when you say that chlorine dioxide attacks pathogens. But you should also mention that chlorine dioxide attacks the “good” bacteria as well, and that it even attacks the cells that line the inside of the colon.
Chris24 wrote: Chlorine dioxide as a free radical by definition is positively charged, and takes an elektron from the negatively charged pathogens
I’m sorry to say that this is not true.
Refer, for example, to Wikipedia, from which I quote:
Free radicals may have positive, negative, or zero charge.

This, then, also cannot be true in general.
You stated that pathogens can develop resistance to positively charged antibiotics by changing their cell-membrane charge from negative to positive, thus repelling the antibiotics. You also stated that the positively charged chlorine dioxide attacks the negatively charged pathogen cells. But if these pathogen cells develop immunity by changing their cell charge from negative to positive, they will equally well repel the chlorine dioxide.
As the attack vector of chlorine dioxide is the same as the attack vector of an antibiotic (namely: the supposed negative charge of the pathogen), an immunity against antibiotics by a change in cell charge implies an immunity to chlorine dioxide.
(Oh, by the way – in reality, resistance to antibiotics is not as simple as changing the charge of the cell membrane. Real cells have many more defense systems.)

Unlike chlorine, chlorine dioxide is not a chlorinating agent and pure chlorine dioxide does not form THMs, it doesn’t chlorinate organics, and it doesn’t react with water to form free chlorine. Additionally, Chlorine dioxide is soluble in water, is less corrosive than chlorine and has efficacy across a broad pH range.
Yeah, blah blah. May be right – this text basically says that chlorine dioxide just attacks anything of biological origin. Including the good bacteria, and including your own body.
