    Why use ultra violet light or PCO when Bi-Polar Ionization is better?

    I Haven't ever used a UV Light or a PCO but I sure love the Indoor Air quality in my home after installing a Bi polar ionizer on my blower housing. I have no maintenance
    or bulb replacement,ozone odor or any odors.

    Might ought to re think your stance.

    Bi Polar Ionization produces ions which in turn produces airborne hydroxyl radicals. These radicals attack the DNA of the contaminate. What makes you believe that they can tell the differance between an airborne biologic contaminate andDNA in your lungs. The next comment would be its at safe levels. Who determinds this and where are the long term studies that back their stance? If its destroying the DNA in the air what do you think it is doing to your lungs?
    Here is some verbiage from a Medical Study.

    "Given the close link between ROS formation and Oxidative DNA damage and the importance of DNA damage and mutation in carcinogenesis, it is not a large leap of intuition to link oxidative DNA lesions and cancer."

    The premise of ventilation is that the OA is clean or of sufficient quality to be used for dilution. Traditional ventilation is somewhat being threatened by the fact that the EPA is changing the requirements for outdoor air quality which is creating non-attainment zones in what is now becoming a significant portion of the country. That means that buildings in those areas will need to clean up the OA before they bring it into the building.

    Lightning strikes and creates positive and negative ions to purify the air around the earth.

    Am I to believe those ions will destroy the DNA in my Lungs too?

    Some products which create Ozone may damage a laboratory animals lungs which may be the case on this report.

    The one I put in my house passed the UL OZONE Chamber test did the ones in the test pass it?

    I appreciate your good information.

    The hydroxyl radical has a very short in vivo half-life of approximately 10−9 seconds
