  • Pure air is made up of 78% nitrogen, 21% oxygen, water vapor, and a small quantity of other gases such as carbon dioxide, argon, krypton, etc.
  • Pollution adds all sorts of chemicals such as are found in automobile exhaust, tobacco smoke, fumes of solvents, factory exhaust, and household cleaners.
  • We can live weeks to months without food, days to weeks without water, but only minutes without air.
  • Studies for astronauts have shown us that in an enclosed space, the human being emits vapors, gases, and odors. We also need not only air but "ionized" air.
  • "Ionized" air (aerion) is produced by forests of trees, sunshine, cosmic rays, the breakup of water particles over oceans or at waterfalls, and from natural radioactive elements in the soil. It can be made by machines; they also add ozone and nitrogen oxides.
  • Oxygen gets the added electrons to get negative ions.
