Default Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide

Didn't want to steal goatershubby's post so am starting a new one. The post went to talking about food grade hydrogen peroxide. I went to a guys farm the other day to buy some chickens. He was very into treating things naturally. We were talking and he stated that he put food grade hydrogen peroxide in all his animals water. I asked why? He stated that it oxygenated blood, which cuts down on cancer, he doesn't have to worm his goats (which by the way looked healthy), etc. (can't remember all the reasons, plus he had didn't have my Texan draw. So had hard time understanding everything) Please don't think I am not going to worm my goats or am saying for anybody to not worm their goats. Just trying to figure out if anyone has ever heard/benefited from this. He also had enough land and $ to have all these pastures to rotate goats every time it rains. Which I'm sure cuts down on the worms. I really don't need another thing to add to my list of ingredients to feed or chores to do. But if it would be as beneficial as he made it sound, I will add it. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Oh, he said that you buy this stuff at health food stores. ie. whole foods

yep it is good stuff but don't think it is for feeding goats and worm control. I use it all the time for other things. like disinfection and cleaning.

Also a word of caution here. Depending on the strength he uses this stuf will burn the daylights out of you and the goats throat and gut so don't be going and getting some from the health food store and not know what strength you need it diluted to.
the stuf sold in a grocery store or drug store you can drink and won't hurt you. but the strength in the health food stores varies

I don't think it is for worm control either. I do know that it will induce vomiting in a dog if you ever need to do that. (ask me how I know )

The guy was over in Spring. I think, he put 3 drops in 1 gallon of water. I'm perfectly happy not adding another chore. Just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing something that could really be a help.

Very interesting about the dog. Do I want to know how you know that?

It isn't going to hurt anything at 3 drops per gal and sure won't burn but don't know as it will work on worms. but might help all the more reason for regular fecal checks.

Sounds a bit like Basic H...? I've heard of folks using it for worms. Or Miracle Mineral Supplement I think that's the same concept...?

Wow! Thanks, Clay! I really can't believe it can help in so many different ways. I'm guessing that the hydrogen peroxide is just boosting the goats health in his herd. Better health is keeping their bodies better able to handle the worm load. I like the idea that it cut on the amount of food they eat.

I also wouldn't mind trying to add it to the things we drink.

Thanks again, Wendy

Do you have an email or website for the guy I be interested in hearing his take on it. I like to look into "natural care" from people that are doing it.
