Negative Ions – How Do Neg Ions Influence Our Health? Listen to this YouTube- podcast!
Summary of: The Biological Impact of Small Air Ions: Dr. Albert Krueger.
Neg Ions, negative air ions, negative small air ions of oxygen: these are all names for the same thing, which I prefer to call energetic air. The energetic element in air is oxygen: it can receive energy from muons – galactic and solar cosmic rays, alpha particles – radon; electrostatic fields (as with electrostatic type air ionizers); rain drops, waterfall spray, and ocean spray from crashing waves (the Lenard Effect).
In the 1980,s there were quite a few air ionizers on the market, including Radio Shack. Now, most are gone. Why? Many people are not aware of any effects from these devices and others do not notice significant changes in how they feel or think. Honeywell offers one or more models, and there are several others listed by Google and Amazon. I believe these devices are worth trying, not just one model, but at least several. In an enclosed space, such as bedroom, small office, or car the levels of energetic air generated by this technology can be useful and effective.
The big problem is you cannot ionize, effectively, many indoor atmospheres when there is excess dust, dander, humidity, and the 1000’s of possible synthetic molecules that out gas and slowly disintegrate continuously from all materials.
Nature can only maintain negative air ions in certain environments, at certain times.
