In the questions section of WDDTY (vol 4 no 12), a reader says that her husband takes small amounts of hydrogen peroxide in water as part of a treatment for prostate cancer.
Would it also help angina? Are there any guidelines on the medicinal use of hydrogen peroxide? Do we use ordinary household bleach? V Lowerson, Richmond, Yorkshire.....
WDDTY replies: In one of our issues (Vol 4 No 8) we offered the scientific evidence available to date on injected hydogen peroxide. Recently, we received a letter from The Centre of Information for Oxygen Therapies, claiming that taking small doses of hydrogen peroxide orally is safe, as documented by scientific papers (1857-1904). But until we see more recent scientific data and clinical evidence, we would caution our readers to be very wary of drinking bleach or anything else that resides under your sink.
