What are “negative ions”?
Negative ions are oxygen atoms with an extra electron. Ions are charged particles that are formed by nature when enough energy acts upon a molecule. An electron is ejected leaving a positively charged ion. The displaced electron attaches itself to a nearby molecule, which then becomes a negatively charged ion. In fresh country air it is common to find up to 4000 negative ions per cubic centimeter. By contrast, it is common to find that the number of negative ions in major cities at rush hour is less than 100.

What are the effects of negative ions?
They cause harmful microscopic -particles (particulates) in the air to clump together then weigh them down to the floor. Particulates include all forms of air pollution (smoke, chemical odors, carbon monoxide, bacteria, viruses, mold, etc.) Negative ions in the environment create a powerful antidote for many environmentally induced health problems such as allergies, respiratory ailments, headaches, and infections.

- fluorescent lighting
- high concentration of electronic equipment
- static producing fibers
- air conditioners
- electric heaters and other heating systems
- many plastics
- older TVs and monitors (CRTs)
- airflow from furnace ducts and HVAC systems.
