Building can feel 'sick' with too many positive ions
Positive and Negative Ions can Affect our Health
Negative ions in the air can bring more oxygen to the brain. This makes us more alert and less tired.
It is also thought that negative ions can protect us from germs in the air.
More negative ions in the air sharpen our senses. This has been proven by many studies. It is known in schools that students make less errors when there are more negative ions in the air.
Negative Ions can Bring Relief
Negative ions can give relief to some physical problems such as sinusitis, hay fever, bronchial asthma, migraines, allergies and even relieve post-operative pain.
An Excess of Positive Ions in the Air is Bad for UsAir conditioners and heaters create positive ions in the air. Computers and electrical equipment create positive ions in the air also. These build up in the air of closed homes and offices.
Knowing what you now do about the air quality, think about what your surroundings are like. Are they closed rooms, closed offices, offices full of electrical equipment that give off positive ions constantly or air conditioned offices?
