Hypochlorite treats inflammation
from The Scientist
It has long been known that extremely dilute bleach baths — 0.005 percent — can be used as a successful accessory treatment for eczema, but until now, no one understood how it worked. Researchers from Stanford University have shown that hypochlorite — bleach's active ingredient — effectively blocks the function of nuclear factor κB (NF-κB), which activates genes involved in inflammation and aging. Their work was published in the Journal of Clinical Investigation.
