How Do Ion's Work?
Fresh Air & Negative Ions
One of the distinct differences between "fresh" outdoor air and
"stale" indoor air is the balance of negative ions versus positive ions. The
freshest outdoor air has high concentrations of negative ions specifically, oxygen
molecules with an extra electron attached and relatively few positive ions (oxygen
with an electron stripped away).
High concentrations of negative ions are found
in the most invigorating outdoor places evergreen forests, around waterfalls, on
beaches with crashing surf, or anywhere after thunderstorms, when the air seems almost
crisp and spicy with freshness!
At the other extreme, positive ions are found
in high concentrations inside closed, air-conditioned and heated buildings, and outdoors
in cities during rush hours (pollution depletes negative ions).
Many believe that this balance of negative
ions versus positive ions may someday be controlled indoors just as we currently
regulate indoor air's humidity and temperature. In this way, we would hope to restore our
homes and work environments to something more like those refreshing outdoor places.
U.S. Dept. of Agriculture
A recent study by the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture found that ionizing a room led to 52% less
dust in the air, and 95% less bacteria in the air (since many of the pollutants found in
the air reside on floating dust particles).
The U.S.D.A. also performed another study to
test the effectiveness of negative ionization at removing airborne Salmonella Enteritidis.
The negative ions drastically reduced the airborne salmonella particles, prompting the
following statement from the USDA:
"These results indicate that negative air
ionization can have a significant impact on the airborne microbial load in a poultry house
and at least a portion of this effect is through direct killing of the

EFFECTIVENESS OF IONIC AIR PURIFIERS
IN REDUCING THE INHALATION OF DANGEROUS
POLLUTANTS AND GERMS.

A year long study by eminent researchers
in air pollution science has concluded that Wein ionic air cleaners can
substantially reduce the inhalation of toxic particles such as smoke,
dust, pollens, molds, many allergens, fungi, germs and the most
dangerous particles that would otherwise remain trapped in the lungs.
This study was performed by leading authorities in air pollution
research in laboratories that have no equal in this country that are
used by EPA, NIH, OSHA, CDC, NIOSH, HUD, NIST, and NATO Wearable and
stationary ionic air cleaners from three different manufacturers were
evaluated and the results and conclusions reviewed
Ozone levels have been tested as safe by
Underwriters Laboratories, USA, Fuji Testing Laboratories, Japan,
University of Southern California, Advanced Pollution Instruments, USA.
The Authors of this report conclude: The research teams at the
Department of Environmental Health at the University of Cincinnati
Medical Center are very excited about these studies and are now
considering two papers to be prepared and submitted to major peer -
reviewed journals with international circulation.
Validation tested at leading
Universities and research institutes.

And finally, the personal air purifier, and it promises to
reduce airborne pollutants, allergens and viruses from your breathing space.
My eyes would be itching, says Carol. My nose would be this extreme
tickle, I could be sneezing.
Normally, cats make Good Housekeeping staffer Carol Wapner
downright miserable. But to put the purifier to the test, she agreed to wear it to this
adoption center, where she was surrounded by the furry felines.
I feel fine, says Carol. I do smell the
cat litter I must say.
Remarkably, even after 25 minutes, Carol didnt sneeze once. Was it really the
purifier? Or could it have been mind over matter?
Wein Products, the company that makes the air purifier, insists it really works thanks to
what it calls a revolutionary technology that destroys pollutants in the air.
The company says it has done extensive testing, but makes no medical claims and says this
is not a medical device. Instead, it says the proof is in the use, telling
Dateline it has hundreds of satisfied customers.
Still skeptical, Good Housekeeping turned to its engineers
for help. They devised a smoke test to see if the air purifier could clear out
a tank of smoke. First, they lit a cigarette and allowed it to burn inside the tank,
building up a lot of smoke.. Then they put the air purifier in the tank:
If you look in here you will see that there is no more streams of smoke, says
Jamey. To our astonishment, it did help the people who wore it, says
Franke, and it did clear out a tank of smoke. And its something that we could
recommend to people with a few caveats about the downsides.
So, the purifier gets a reality check of three stars. But it gets a gold star from Carol
Wapner who never thought she could spend this much time up close and personal with one
cat, much less 18!
No reaction, says
amazing. Thirty minutes, half an hour.
