Today, at the beginning of the 21st century we can hardly, if only, imagine living without many electric devices. They make it easier for us to work in the office, at home, they entertain us. However, we often do not realize that they are also a source of very harmful positive ions, the so-called electric smog. The harmful effect of electric smog, resulting in the concentration of positive ions, deteriorates the condition of air in rooms, what then negatively affects our physical and emotional state.
The most important sources of harmful positive ions are:
• computer monitors • TV sets and radio receivers • electric heaters • dryers, vacuum cleaners • microwave ovens • tobacco smoke
Scientific Research For Air Ionization
It has been researched scientifically that the amount of ions in the environment, that is acceptable by human is ca. 1000-1500/cm3. And normally in closed rooms were electronic appliances are utilized, this amount as low as 200/cm3. So to increase the number of negative ions in the environment, air ionizers are used. These air ionizers generate the negative ions and balance the atmosphere of the room. You can see the effect of the negative ions in a Salt Mine, by the sea or walking right after a storm.
What Scientific Research Says?
Scientific research has proven that the amount of ions in the environment, acceptable by the human, is ca. 1000 - 1500/cm3. In closed rooms where a few people work at the same time the amount of negative ions may fall to as low as 200/cm3. The positive effect of negative ions can be experienced on a visit to the Wieliczka Salt Mine, by the sea, or walking right after a storm. Now you know how important it is to make sure that the harmful effect of electric smog is reduced to a minimum in the rooms where we work.
