Isn't it Ionic? Air Purifiers Make Smog


Recommended Posts

From LiveScience;

Using a popular process called ionization, the air cleaners can actually generate ozone levels in a room that exceed the worst smog days in Los Angeles, a new study finds.

"Ozone high in the atmosphere protects Earth from damaging ultraviolet radiation. Down here, it is called smog. Ozone can damage the lungs and cause shortness of breath and throat irritation, and it can also exacerbate asthma."

. . .insidious!! . . .cough!  <img src="http://imagehouze.com/uploader/files/126/barfonu.gif" alt="barfonu.gif" />
