"If you don't want to change by facts, you change by force... or else you are fucked." - and this is what the whole world is facing it now. A suddenly and totally change.
In a year when changes happen almost within days, the whole world is pushed to a drastically change. If one virus can wipe out the entire economy in a matter of weeks and shut down societies, then that is the proof that our societies are not very resilient, or better to say: the foundation is sinking. It also shows that once we are in an emergency, we can act and we can change our behavior quickly.
Within a month we were pushed to living in a time of virtual happy hours and virtual dance parties, virtual choirs and virtual 'breath connection, virtual church services and virtual potlucks, virtual quarantine and virtual sobriety meetings. The Japanese have even coined a term, "on-nomi", for drinking online with friends.
The Covid-19 situation seems to have hit the pause button in our lives. Schools have shuttered, jobs put on hold and panic spreading like wildfire. We’re experiencing unprecedented times and going into uncharted waters.
But if you look at it positively, the situation is a Wake-Up Call for the rest of us. It also gives us the perfect opportunity to plan and reflect.
Worrying won’t change a thing for you. Why not use the time #justsatyinghome to start ahead once this is over (which is a certainty)?
We need to staying (virtually) together while remaining (physically) apart.
Navigate through turbulent times, but stay ahead of being protected.
After the hysteria created in whole world about the "death virus" I had to start researching not for the cure or vaccine or something similar, but to search for a solution at the moment. At least at home i have to breath clean air. We cannot suddenly stop the pollution around the world (although the news shows how the Earth is healing by this shutting down moment), but at least for me, for my friends and family we can take important measures.
So, at this moment, to protect what is the most important: your house and your air is the new VITAL point of the turning life. In the midst of corona virus pandemic, when the whole world is lockdown, when people are freaking out against viruses, you can have an alternative for you and your home. The best, practical and extremely profitable way to clean your house through ozonization.
But, before to see what the solution is, let's have a look at these two important factors that we have with this invisible enemy and how it turned our life upside-down.
Two major things need to be taken in consideration for a better life and to beat this pandemic situation:
1. The persistence of virus in the air.
A study of "The New England Journal of Medicine" shows its persistence in the air: 'A novel human coronavirus that is now named severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) (formerly called HCoV-19) emerged in Wuhan, China, in late 2019 and is now causing a pandemic.1 We analyzed the aerosol and surface stability of SARS-CoV-2 and compared it with SARS-CoV-1, the most closely related human coronavirus.
We found that the stability of SARS-CoV-2 was similar to that of SARS-CoV-1 under the experimental circumstances tested. This indicates that differences in the epidemiologic characteristics of these viruses probably arise from other factors, including high viral loads in the upper respiratory tract and the potential for persons infected with SARS-CoV-2 to shed and transmit the virus while asymptomatic. Our results indicate that aerosol and fomite transmission of SARS-CoV-2 is plausible, since the virus can remain viable and infectious in aerosols for hours and on surfaces up to days (depending on the inoculum shed). These findings echo those with SARS-CoV-1, in which these forms of transmission were associated with nosocomial spread and super-spreading events, and they provide information for pandemic mitigation efforts.'
How long will coronavirus live on surfaces or in the air around you? A new study could have implications for how the general public and health care workers try to avoid transmission of the virus:
When the virus becomes suspended in droplets smaller than five micrometers — known as aerosols — it can stay suspended for about a half-hour, researchers said, before drifting down and settling on surfaces where it can linger for hours. (In the study’s experimental setup, the virus stayed suspended for three hours, but it would drift down much sooner under most conditions.) The finding on aerosol in particular is inconsistent with the World Health Organization’s position that the virus is not transported by air.
For weeks experts have maintained that the virus is not airborne. But in fact, it can travel through the air and stay suspended for that period of about a half-hour.
The virus does not linger in the air at high enough levels to be a risk to most people who are not physically near an infected person. But the procedures health care workers use to care for infected patients are likely to generate aerosols.
Scientists from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), part of the U.S. National Institutes of Health, attempted to mimic the virus deposited from an infected person onto everyday surfaces in a household or hospital setting, such as through coughing or touching objects.
The tests show that when the virus is carried by the droplets released when someone coughs or sneezes, it remains viable, or able to still infect people, in aerosols for at least three hours.
So, to clean your air and house becomes a demand now. It's your own duty to invest in it to protect yourself and your family.
2. On the other hand, new research links air pollution to higher coronavirus death rates.
The Harvard analysis is the first nationwide study to show a statistical link, revealing a “large overlap” between Covid-19 deaths and other diseases associated with long-term exposure to fine particulate matter.
“The results of this paper suggest that long-term exposure to air pollution increases vulnerability to experiencing the most severe Covid-19 outcomes,” the authors wrote.
For example, it found that a person living for decades in a county with high levels of fine particulate matter is 15 percent more likely to die from the coronavirus than someone in a region with one unit less of the fine particulate pollution.
As more is learned about the recurrence of Covid-19, the study also could have far-reaching implications for clean-air regulations, which the Trump administration has worked to roll back over the past three years on the grounds that they have been onerous to industry.
“The study results underscore the importance of continuing to enforce existing air pollution regulations to protect human health both during and after the Covid-19 crisis,” the study said.
Beth Gardiner, a journalist and the author of “Choked: Life and Breath in the Age of Air Pollution,” said she was particularly worried about what the coronavirus outbreak would mean for countries with far worse pollution, such as India.
“Most countries don’t take it seriously enough and aren’t doing enough given the scale of the harm that air pollution is doing to all of our health,” she said.
The science behind Ozone and its benefits.
So we have one time that the virus that resists many hours in the air and the second time the pollution is on the higher risk for getting sick. But for centuries now, you have an option to bring back at least in your house: use an ozone machine. Here is an introduction in Ozone therapy and the history of what Ozone can help improve your life.
What Ozone is and why is the best for these time?
Ozone is a molecule of 3 oxygen atoms, O3. It is the most robust oxidant known so far, proven aspect scientific.
Ozone is nature’s way of detoxifying and purifying the environment. Negatively charged ozone is naturally attracted to positively charged pollutants and when the two meet, ozone wins the battle. Ozone is such a powerful detoxifier that since World War II, ozonation has become the primary method to assure clean water in Switzerland, West Germany and France with the U.S. unfortunately lagging behind in this safe form of water treatment.
It has been said that ozone is thousands of times faster and more effective than chlorine at killing bacteria, molds, cysts and inactivating virus, yeasts and protozoa, while providing a purity and safety not achievable with traditional water treatment chemicals.
Ozone is one of the top oxidizers and has been used in medical and naturopathic medicine since the 1870’s to treat a variety of health conditions. With all its amazing cleaning and detoxifying properties, it’s not hard to imagine why it might also be very beneficial to humans as well. For more than 200 years it has been used safely and beneficially to help treat a variety of conditions.
The benefits of ozone:
● Ozone is the strongest oxidant and disinfectant available for the treatment of aqueous solutions, gaseous mixtures and it kills pathogens in seconds, compared to a few minutes for other oxidants.
● it is partially soluble in water and sufficiently soluble and stable as well that its oxidation or disinfection properties can be used entirely.
● after the ozone layer is oxidized or disinfected, it becomes decomposes into oxygen.
● ozone reacts with a wide variety of compounds.
● cannot be stored and must be generated, does not oxidize because it cannot be stored.
● ozone in the gas phase is a proven deodorant for one variety of materials with smell.
● in the treatment of drinking water, waste water, or residual water, ozone proven ability to convert organic materials into biodegradable material.
● applying the ozone layer to any environment (liquid or gaseous) does not requires the addition of other chemicals.
● does not affect pH.
● improves the coagulation of organic materials, improving thus filtration; Ozone in combination with water has the advantage of removing its taste the smell of drinking water. Ozone in contact with waste water can:
● removes odors
● removes color
● Ozone cannot be stored, so it must be generated and it dissolves in water on the spot, at a consumption rate. Ozone is generated as a gas that must be dissolved in water.
- Over 50% more efficient at breaking through bacteria membranes compared to chlorine
- Eliminates a wide range of bacteria over 3000 times faster than chlorine
- Potent disinfectant at low concentrations
- Decomposes into oxygen gas leaving no by-products
- FDA-approved for direct contact with food
- Extends shelf life of most food products
- Efficient odor, taste and color remover
- Easily and economically produced at point of use
- Easily detectable at low concentrations by humans, thereby safe to manage
- Regulatory framework in place for human exposure in most countries.
The disadvantages of ozone:
Like any oxidant, ozone also has negative parts that appear when used abusive:
● degrades materials.
● can affect people, pets, plants.
● oxidizes materials.
These are the three very "negative" elements. All oxidants have the same "negative" effects if used inappropriately.
Proper implementation is essential for obtaining great results in your processes. Ozone is an unstable molecule that changes rapidly back to oxygen. In the air it decomposes in 2060 minutes, depending on the temperature and humidity of the ambient air. Half-life in clean water is about the same.
Ozone destroys the mold
Ozone saturates the entire surface and reaches the areas inaccessible by hand to neutralize spores mold directly from their source.
Ozone generators are an invaluable tool if you want to completely sterilize the spaces covered by mold and spores.
Moisture and humidity are often factors that produce mold and it is important to reduce these levels before treatment
Ozone in air conditioning installations
Air conditioning installations in the house, office, hotel, restaurant or car requires intervention maintenance to maintain efficiency and operation their.
The biggest maintenance problem includes periodic cleaning of pipes to remove organic matter and microbes from air conditioning installation.
Microbial growth induces corrosion, prevents the exchange of cooling efficiently and can quickly block the cooling system if it does not intervene, and the main problem is the heavy and unbearable smell given by bacteria.
Approaching with a chemical treatment is not the effective solution for this problem.
Advancement in technology has led to the development of a weapon much more
strong in the fight against microbes: ozone.
Ozone has an oxidation power 1.52 times greater than chlorine, which makes it the most powerful commercially available oxidizing agent.
Ozone generators can destroy microorganisms and materials
organic entering the cooling system.
Ozone in storage areas
Benefits of using ozone in storage areas a of vegetables, fruits, etc .:
● destroys pathogens.
● extend the shelf life of the product.
● controls the microbes and eliminates them.
● maintains the safety of the rooms by inhibiting pathogens.
● removes mold from the cold storage area.
● controls the smell.
Ozone in the processing of fruits or vegetables
Fruits and vegetables can have bacteria and mold that reduce the shelf life and can cause problems serious health.
Simple rinsing does not adequately smooth against mold and bacteria.
By spraying the water with ozone, a complete sanitization of fruits and vegetables.
Ozone products have a longer shelf life and the alteration does not occur during transit and on the shelf. It can be reduced to to 50% of the deterioration of the products, which leads to more profits big.
Ozone in meat processing
Advantages of ozone in meat processing:
● the most powerful oxidant available
● environmentally friendly
● instantly destroys pathogens
● 3000 times stronger than chlorine
● does not leave chemical residues
Ozone is particularly suitable for the food industry because of it its ability to disinfect microorganisms without chemicals and can be used in the processing and storage of meat.
Total inactivation of pathogens:
● E. coli O157: H7
● Micrococcus aureus
● Clostridim botulinum
The benefits of ozone in meat processing:
● improves the taste and appearance of the meat.
● decreases the number of microorganisms and ensures a longer period
● instantly destroys pathogens.
● Do not use chemicals.
● you have no chemical residue.
● is natural and allows the use of ozone in food production
