I’m sure you’ve heard that UV light destroys those invisible pathogens that the COVID virus is spreading around. While sunlight is the best source of UVB rays and a great (and free) way to keep your immune system healthy, UVC is the most effective at cleansing.
What is Ultraviolet (UV) Light?
Ultraviolet light is defined in a medical dictionary as:
denoting electromagnetic radiation of wavelength shorter than that of the violet
end of the spectrum, having wavelengths of 4–400 nanometers.
ultraviolet A (UVA): ultraviolet radiation with wavelengths between 320 and 400 nm,
comprising over 99 per cent of such radiation that reaches the surface of the earth.
Ultraviolet A enhances the harmful effects of ultraviolet B radiation and is also
responsible for some photosensitivity reactions; it is used therapeutically in the
treatment of a variety of skin disorders.
ultraviolet B (UVB): ultraviolet radiation with wavelengths between 290 and 320 nm,
comprising less than 1 per cent of the ultraviolet radiation that reaches the earth’s surface.
Ultraviolet B causes sunburn and a number of damaging photochemical changes within
cells, including damage to DNA, leading to premature aging of the skin, premalignant and
malignant changes, and a variety of photosensitivity reactions; it is also used
therapeutically for treatment of skin disorders.
ultraviolet C (UVC): ultraviolet radiation with wavelengths between 200 and 290 nm; all
of this type of radiation is filtered out by the ozone layer so that none reaches the earth’s
surface. Ultraviolet C is germicidal and is also used in ultraviolet phototherapy.
ultraviolet rays: electromagnetic radiation beyond the violet end of the visible spectrum;
they are not visible to humans. They are produced by the sun but are absorbed to a large
extent by particles of dust and smoke in the earth’s atmosphere. They are also produced
by so called sun lamps. They can produce sunburn and affect skin pigmentation,
causing tanning. When they strike the skin surface they transform provitamin D, secreted by
the glands of the skin, into vitamin D, which is then absorbed into the body. Because
ultraviolet rays are capable of killing bacteria and other microorganisms, they are
sometimes used to sterilize objects in specially designed cabinets, or to sterilize the air in
operating rooms and other areas where destruction of bacteria is necessary.
What is Ozone?
Wikipedia offers the following information about ozone:
Ozone or trioxygen, is an inorganic molecule with the chemical formula O3. It is a pale blue gas with a distinctively pungent smell. It is an allotrope of oxygen that is much less stable than the diatomic allotrope O2, breaking down in the lower atmosphere to O2 (dioxygen). Ozone forms from dioxygen by the action of ultraviolet (UV) light and electrical discharges within the earth’s atmosphere. It is present in very low concentrations throughout the latter, with its highest concentration high in the ozone layer of the stratosphere, which absorbs most of the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) radiation.
Ozone is a powerful oxidant (far more so than dioxygen) and has many industrial and consumer applications related to oxidation. This same high oxidizing potential, however, causes ozone to damage mucous and respiratory tissues in animals, and also tissues in plants, above concentrations of about 0.1 ppm. While this makes ozone a potent respiratory hazard and pollutant near ground level, a higher concentration in the ozone layer (from two to eight ppm) is beneficial, preventing damaging UV light from reaching the earth’s surface.
What is a UVlizer?
The uvlizer was created based on the germicidal effects of UVC used in healthcare, combined with the oxidizing powers of ozone. Germicidal UVC light produces ozone during the cleansing process which also disinfects the areas where ultraviolet light cannot reach. The Uvlizer is natural and safe, leaving no chemical smells or residue on the surfaces in your home when used properly. It does leave a faint chlorine-like smell in the air, but that dissipates quickly, well within the 40 minutes indicated in the instructions.
The Uvlizer is very portable and easy to use; you simply turn it on and leave the room. After the required wait time for the smell to disappear, move it to another room and repeat the process. As indicated, you must leave the room and remove plants from the room while the uvilizer is working as the ozone is toxic to humans and plants. When turned on, a timer counts off 30 seconds to permit you time to leave the room. There is also a remote for this purpose. The unit shuts itself off after the time limit you set based on the size of the room.
Where can I get a UVlizer?
Currently you can purchase a Uvlizer online for $80USD or $102CDN with free delivery worldwide! Shipping from Wyoming in the USA, delivery takes 6 to 10 days within the USA or Canada and longer elsewhere.
You can also purchase one from Amazon
