to the American College of Allergies, 50%
of all illness is aggravated or caused by
polluted indoor air.
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) themselves
declare that indoor air is anywhere from 2
to 10 times more hazardous than outdoor air.
EPA also warns us that the indoor air quality
is the number one environmental health problem.
homes and buildings are built air-tight, and
contain a long list of pollution sources.
As a result, natural air-cleansing agents
such as ozone and negative ions are kept out,
while contaminants are kept in.
recent study found that the allergen level
in super-insulated homes is 200% higher than
it is in ordinary homes.
people spend well over 90% of their time indoors.
In which case, indoor air is going to impact
our health far more than outdoor air.
EPA informs us that 6 out of 10 homes and
buildings are "sick", meaning they
are hazardous to your health to occupy as
a result of airborne pollutants.
are Negative Ions?
ions are odorless, tasteless, and invisible molecules
that we inhale in abundance in certain environments.
Think mountains, waterfalls, and beaches. Once
they reach our bloodstream, negative ions are
believed to produce biochemical reactions that
increase levels of the mood chemical serotonin,
helping to alleviate depression, relieve stress,
and boost our daytime energy.
of Negative Ions
ion generators (negative ionizers) have been
used for years to help rid closed indoor environments
of allergens such as dust particles, animal
dander, pollen, mold spores, cigarette smoke,
cigar smoke, PM10 particulate matter, etc.

of the Air--Generally speaking, negative ions
increase the flow of oxygen to the brain;
resulting in higher alertness, decreased drowsiness,
and more mental energy," says Pierce

ozone purifies the air
Ozone oxidizes airborne pollutants, then reverts
back to oxygen, transforming polluted air to pure
and refreshened air.
Here is how the process works:
molecules (O1 and O2) are converted to ozone (O3)
by either a high-voltage electrical charge (such
as from lightning), or by ultraviolet light (such
as from the sun rays).
oxygen atom (O1) splits off from the ozone molecule,
and reacts with other particles when it comes
within range of a particle and/or pollutant. Ozone
is highly reactive, so it never fails to initiate
this reaction with other particles.
the 2nd most powerful oxidant in existance, the
single oxygen atom proceeds to "oxidize"
the particle it reacts with. This means it burns
the particle, which changes its physical properties.
As a result, the particle will no longer be toxic,
and will no longer be able to reproduce if it
is biological. In other words, the particle becomes
the single oxygen (O1) molecule oxidizes the particle,
it too is destroyed. This leaves behind the O2
it split away from, or pure and clean oxygen.
Refrigeration Service Engineers Society has reported
that electric-arc welders exposed to ozone levels
of 0.2 to 0.3 ppm (parts per million) for a decade
showed no adverse effects. The Surround Air Ionizers
produce between 0.02 to 0.04 ppm of ozone. Also,
according to the 1961 Encyclopedia of Chemical
Technology, "During the 80-year history of
the large scale usage of ozone, there has never
been a human death attributed to it." To
this day, there has still never been a single
human death or incident of harm attributed to
despite the fact that ozone was widely used in
hospitals during the first half of the 20th century,
and is still widely used in European hospitals.
In addition, millions of ozone air purification
systems are in use worldwide, both commercially
In addition, the smell of ozone will become unpleasant
and obnoxious well before reaching harmful levels,
serving as a built-in and self-policing safety
mechanism. If this happens, you know to make an
adjustment (i.e. adjust setting of machine, increase
air flow, place in more open/larger area).
at proper levels (0.02 ppm to 0.05 ppm), it will
have a pleasant and clean smell to it, reminiscent
of the smell outside after a lightening storm.
