“Dangers of Air Purifiers” In The Media

Often time’s articles are published regarding “Dangers from Popular Air Purifying Machines”.

There will always be ozone critics and rightly so. In a “HIGH” concentration, ozone is very irritating and can even be unhealthy.

Water is also a problem when its concentration is too high. It causes death by drowning, mudslides, property damage, and disruption of public and private activities. Ingesting too much water at one time can be poisonous. Fire fits into the same category. We need fire for all of its practical benefits but we hate it when it attacks our forests and homes. Sunlight has good and bad extremes, as well.

Critics like to overlook the positive aspects of ozone. They cannot dispute the fact that ozone is a natural constituent of our atmosphere. In fact, the missing ozone in our atmosphere (the ozone hole) poses significant health hazards for the earth’s human and animal population. Critics cannot dispute that ozone is a strong oxidizer. Nor can they deny that ozone – in appropriate levels – is “safe” and gives air a freshness quality that is universally beneficial and appreciated.

Everyone likes the air freshness that we associate with thunderstorms. We all like the freshness that is common to beaches, islands, golf courses, forests, and mountainous areas. There are safe ozone type air purifiers on the market that replicate mountain fresh air-conditions in homes. Millions of satisfied customers have proven the safety and effectiveness of these types of purifiers.
