The Error at the Base of the Nebulized Peroxide Controversy by Dr. Joseph Mercola
September 22, 2021, The Washington Post published an article citing warnings from the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA),1 which triggered a frenzy of media articles warning against using nebulized hydrogen peroxide for respiratory viruses such as SARS-CoV-2.
“A leading asthma patient group has issued a warning against an unproven coronavirus treatment circulating on social media that is leading some people to post videos of themselves breathing in hydrogen peroxide through a nebulizer.
The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America called the action ‘concerning and dangerous’ in a Tuesday blog post,2 emphasizing that it will neither treat nor prevent the virus and is harmful to the lungs. ‘DO NOT put hydrogen peroxide into your nebulizer and breathe it in. This is dangerous!’ the foundation wrote.”3
According to the AAFA,4 “Hydrogen peroxide can be used as a cleaner and stain remover, and can cause tissue damage if you swallow it or breathe it in.” In their blog,5 the AAFA also cites the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry, which notes that:6
“Hydrogen peroxide can be toxic if ingested, inhaled, or by contact with the skin or eyes. Inhalation of household strength hydrogen peroxide (3%) can cause respiratory irritation. Exposure to household strength hydrogen. peroxide can cause mild ocular irritation. Inhalation of vapors from concentrated (higher than 10%) solutions may result in severe pulmonary irritation.”
Front Group Blames Me for Peroxide ‘Misinformation’
According to The Washington Post, the Great Reset front group known as the Center for Countering Digital Hate (CCDH) has identified me as the source and driver behind the trend to nebulize hydrogen peroxide as an antiviral prevention and treatment for respiratory viruses:7
“In April 2020, Mercola posted a video saying ‘hydrogen peroxide treatment can successfully treat most viral respiratory illnesses, including coronavirus,’ according to the advocacy group Center for Countering Digital Hate …
Imran Ahmed, chief executive of the Center for Countering Digital Hate, said he blames Mercola for advancing hydrogen peroxide as a coronavirus treatment.
He called hydrogen peroxide ‘a really volatile chemical and a bleaching agent,’ and expressed concern that even saline-diluted solutions could be harmful if used instead of legitimate treatments or vaccines.
‘This is not just about the primary effect of telling people that hydrogen peroxide can affect covid. It means people will reject other therapies when they are in trouble,’ Ahmed said. ‘It means people get sick and, rather than getting the treatment they need, they will start looking on Amazon for a nebulizer and hydrogen peroxide.’”
What the ‘Experts’ Are Missing
There’s just one really major problem with this suppression attempt, and that is that they’re assuming people aren’t following instructions. From the get-go, my instructions have been quite clear.
It is really important to dilute the hydrogen peroxide with saline to get a 0.1% solution, as indicated in the chart below; 99.9% of what you’re inhaling is literally harmless saline, not peroxide. As I’ll discuss further below, saline may even have distinct health benefits of its own. The Washington Post, to their credit, did include my response to their inquiry for this story:8
